Murtha: Not Backing Down

McCain made the comment recently that Murtha's position resulted from sentimentality and attending too many funerals of dead U.S. soldiers.

After reading the above link, its clear how ridiculous that is, and how Murtha has been paying attention to the details that our incompetent POTUS didn't have the time or inclination to care about. Finally Murtha just had seen enough of the incompetence and what it was costing us in blood and treasure.

The best quote of the press conference:

QUESTION: Mr. Murtha, what do you say to Senator Lieberman whom yesterday said Democrats need to acknowledge that this president is commander in chief for three more years, that undermining his credibility...

MURTHA: Undermining his credibility? What has he said that would give him credibility?

Wonder who this Senator was?

QUESTION: What about the Senate? Do you have any (inaudible)?

MURTHA: I have had 12 senators call me -- mostly calling about information.

MURTHA: One senator, I said -- you know, they're all running for president -- but to one senator I said, "This is a watershed event for you, Senator. You'd better get off the middle ground, because what your position is is in between and it's nothing."

And that senator did not like what I said.

Mertha has heart and he's no fool. He's been following this war like a hawk since before it started. He knows the reality, he hears it from the soldiers he visits in Walter Reed and from the Generals who know him as a long-time supporter of the armed services. We ignore him at our peril.

I don't know which senator he's talking about, but I'll tell you this, nobody wants to vote for someone who's "pretending" to be a leader. Murtha is a leader and anyone who wants to be president would be advised to follow his example.

Can I just say one more time, "thank God for real Americans like Murth!" When we look back at this war twenty years from now, his courage will be one of the few bright points in a very dark period.

Yeah, you are probably right. Kerry has been all over the map on this one. That's the major reason why I don't want to have to vote for him in 2008, and why he should bow out now. We must put forward a candidate who was against the war from the very beginning. If Dean had run against Bush he would have crushed him. Having an articulate candidate wouldn't hurt either.
