John Murtha Cleans Rove's Clock: We'll Follow You Anywhere, John!
A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL
After years of timidity and wimpiness, the Dems have found themselves a Marine who knows how to battle for our troops and bring truth to power.
In a stunning display of what the Dems should have been saying for the last six years, Murtha hit the Sunday morning pundit fest on Father's Day and nailed Rove to his tuchas (Yiddish for butt).
Reacting to Rove's orchestrated character assassination of Murtha, the crusty Dem Marine responded: ""He's making a political speech. He's sitting in his air-conditioned office on his big, fat backside saying, 'Stay the course.' That's not a plan."
Here's some more of what Murtha took to the airwaves to share with the American public:
Well, "stay the course" is "stay and pay." This is the thing that has worried me right along. We're spending $8 billion dollars a month, $300 million dollars a day. And to give you some perspective of what that means, Gates said, "I'm going to quit the corporation, or I'm going to --less time with the corporation." Well, you weigh $30 billion dollars. That's four months of the cost of this war. This port security, if you want to spend more money, it would take 47 years the way we're spending it. Education, the No Child Left Behind, a couple months of the war would pay for that. Who's going to, who's going to pay for this down the road? Our children and grandchildren are paying for this war. And then you have the, the, the emotional strain, the, the, the people who are being hurt.
On the floor the other day, you may have heard this, one fellow says, "We're fighting this war." We're not fighting this war. One percent of the American people, these young men and women are fighting this war, with heavy packs, with 70 pounds of equipment, with helmets on in 130 degrees. That's who's fighting this war. And they say "stay the course." There's no plan. You open up this plan for victory, there's no plan there. It's just "stay the course." That doesn't solve any problem.
Unlike many Democrats -- and certainly the Vietnam Chickenhawks AKA Bush and Cheney -- Murtha is combat-tested.
Boy, does it show.
Is it too early to shout, "Murtha for President"?
This guy has got the guts to turn the tide. He's not retreating, like most of the other Dems do at the first sign of a salvo from Rove.
No, Murtha is a true Marine.
This guy is smashing right through the front lines of the enemy.
Bully for you, Mr. Murtha.
Bring it on!
