Representative Murtha

Pardon me if I am totally impressed with Rep.John Murtha, and hear every word he says. His aim is true. On Face the Nation today he said this about the Bush War :

"The public is way ahead of what’s going on in Washington. They no longer believe it. The troops themselves, 70 percent of the troops said we want to come home within a year. The only solution to this is to redeploy. Let me tell you, the only people who want us in Iraq is Iran and al-Qaeda. I've talked to a top-level commander the other day, it was about two weeks ago, and he said China wants us there also. Why? Because we’re depleting our resources, our troop resources and our fiscal resources."

Redhedd at firedoglake explains it better than I could :

"Murtha comes across as not only very credible, but also as caring about the lives of our troops, the consequences of the horrible choices made by the Bush Administration, and as having some serious sources at high levels in the military who are having the same concerns. Perhaps because all of that is true -- you can really feel the anger on behalf of the nation and its men and women in uniform coming off Murtha in waves, can't you? Boo yah."

Rep. Murtha truly cares for our soldiers in a way that the thugs in the White House can't even conceive of. Murtha has the clout to express the public's anger with this useless, liar's war to the national media. The MSM doesn't often give anti-war liberals like Feingold or Kucinich a forum, but Murtha cuts through, clear and strong.

Poor Murtha has been ripped apart by the cowardly GOP for being a coward himself.
