Looney Liberal of the Week: John Murtha

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- This week's Looney Lib is John Murtha (D-PA) for comments he made after receiving the 2006 Edmund S. Muskie Distinguished Public Service Award from the Center for National Policy. Murtha received this prestigious award (well... not so prestigious as a Nobel Prize), because he is one of the few Democrats who remembers Muskie, and who is also willing to accept an award by that name.

The CNP presented Murtha with the award, not for his 37 years of service as a Marine officer or his 16 terms as a House Representative, but because he went on TV and ragged out George Bush in true Democratic fashion. He received the award for his "cut-and-run, we're already defeated, America is always wrong" stance on the war in Iraq.

"Who wants us in Iraq? North Korea, Iran, China, Russia and al Qaeda," Murtha told the CNP gathering in Washington, D.C. ...Yeah right! Iran and al Qaeda want us in Iraq, eh? Then why are they fighting so hard to get us out? Idiot.

"Our ability to project power to protect Americans wherever and whenever necessary is no longer at the level necessary to ensure success," he went on to say. So what Murtha really means, is that we should just "project" power while not actually using it. It's sort of like a movie "projector". You just flash a picture of an aircraft carrier on the horizon and expect your enemies to start pooping in their pants. I think this guy is coming down with dementia.

"This is longer than the involvement in the Korean War, and soon will be longer than our participation in World War II," he said. And of course everybody knows that a "good war" never goes longer than four years. If you can't win a war in four years then it's time to retreat, eh John? Actually, Murtha seems to have forgotten that we are still in Germany and still in Korea. Idiot squared.

"Some say staying in Iraq is the answer. I disagree," Murtha said. "There are two policies: One is President Bush's policy, and that's stay the course. And my policy, which is redeploy (er... cut-and-run) as soon as practical."

So there you have it. The ideas that made Murtha great... and worthy of a "Muskie". I propose we give Murtha the "Chicken Hawk Award" (with emphasis on the word "chicken"). For a man who went through the War in Vietnam, Murtha is a clear example of someone who has failed to learn the lessons of the past, and is determined to repeat them.

If you want to see some of the Murtha video, you can click HERE. Actually, I prefer the video of the guy who organized a protest AGAINST Murtha, which is HERE.

Thanks! I hope you're feeling better these days?

Feisty Diana Irey is running a terrific campaign against Murtha in a most idiotically gerrymandered 12th district.

In her most recent campaign letter, she points out that, contrary to Murtha's claims of support for our military, his voting record says otherwise. "Since taking office, Murtha has--
-- voted to cut defense spending by more than $76 billion

-- voted against making it easier to deport foreign terrorist suspects

--voted against tougher border controls, and

--voted against increased airport security"

Murtha may think that he looks "pretty" in (Code) pink, but Irey supporters know that Murtha needs to redeploy back to Johnstown for some much needed rest in his dotage.

I think there is something very fishy about Murtha being given a "Muskie". Although if the stench fits.....

Whenever the word "moonbat" becomes a dictionary word, a picture of John Murtha will be right beside it.

Great info! Thanks. Hopefully, "pretty in pink" Murtha will go down in flames. He's been around the block once too many times. He needs to find his inner child and meditate on his navel for say... the rest of his life?

Murtha... Muskie... what's the difference? Talk about stench. It stinks to high heaven!

That's where I got his picture from! I just Googled "moonbat" under "Images" and up came you know who.

(:D) Regards...

I did an image search for "moonbat"; on the first page I saw pictures of Cindy Sheehan, Dan Rather and Al Gore...but none of John Murtha.
(I realize you were joking)

But THIS is still my favorite...

okay, what took you so long to put him in the Looney Hall of Flame

Murtha was discussed yet again on Hannity and Colmes with Colmes, (once again), sarcasticly saying, "---how dare a decorated soldier critisize anything----"

This moron forgets that we ALL know it was alright for hgim and the left to not only critisize the swiftboat vets, but drag their names through the mud.

I almost choked on Thursday night when after critisizing Israel for defending themselves, this fool admitteds he was a Jew, as if that gave him some right to defend Lebanon!

The Jewes ARE God's chosen people, but I have a feeling Colmes ancestors about 2000 years ago may have had something to do with a certain MAN being crucified!

I think we all know that Teddy K's brain has been eaten away by booze, but I am not sure what has been eating at Murtha's, but my bet is it is SOMETHING!!!

Yeah, I love that one too!

Ms RW,
Actually, Murtha was featured here... HERE, and HERE.

Murtha must of "spiked" his dog biscuits. Remember this one... RELATED?.

Hawkeye: Yes! Everytime I see Murtha, I flash back to "Droopy". How sad that I used to like "Droopy"!

Did you see this?

What really pains me(and makes Murtha all the more reprehensible) is that it is clear that all his bluster over the Iraq War is purely for partisan reasons-and he probably doesn't even agree with the positions he is taking, but rather aping the views of Pelosi and Sheehan.

Did you click on the link about the controversy over his military service and especially the two Purple Hearts, he asked for?
Deja vu all over again with this guy!

At 7/23/2006 9:52 AM , Blogger Hawkeye® said...

No I hadn't seen that one, thanks! For those of you who got the link chopped off on the right side, you can click HERE. Enjoy!

Yeah, it's despicable. Another guy all puffed up, tellin' tall tales, tryin' to be somebody he ain't.
