Republicans Trying To Shoot Down the Murtha Marine Saturday, January 14, 2006

The juggernaut known as the Murtha Marine is currently under fire from Republicans in a full blown "depatriotization" campaign similar to what they did with Cleland in Georgia and to McCain when he ran against Bush in 2000. People should worry about this because they've been particularly effective at knocking these guys down. Murtha is a powerful congressman who's a big defender of the military. He even voted for the Iraq war initially.

The conservative online rag called FreeRepublic calls in to question Murtha's record, specifically regarding his purple hearts. Naturally the people they call on to refute them in the story are people's he's been in elections. They are trying to destroy the career of yet another veteran and soldier, a man who spent literally 38 years as a marine. I'm not surprised but ashamed of them.

Murtha questioned the administration after having talked at length to soldiers in the field and at the pentagon. He knows the stakes, he has his whole life and know he's having to face perhaps the most vicious enemy he's every faced... Republicans.
