Murtha Changes Mind On Iraq

Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.), one of the leading anti-war voices in the House Democratic Caucus, is back from a trip to Iraq and he now says the “surge is working.” This could be a huge problem for Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other Democratic leaders, who are blocking approval of the full $200 billion being sought by President Bush for combat operations in Iraq in 2008.

Murtha’s latest comments are also a stark reversal from what he said earlier in the year. The Pennsylvania Democrat, who chairs the powerful Defense Subcommittee on the House Appropriations Committee, has previously stated that the surge “is not working” and the United States faced a military disaster in Iraq.

Back in July of this year Murtha said the following about the surge and Bush’s words that it’s working: “Well it’s delusional to say the least. As I said earlier, and you heard me say it, it’s a failed policy wrapped in illusion. Nothing’s gotten better. Incidents have increased. We have had more Americans killed in the last four months than any other period during the war.”

A top House Democratic aide, speaking on the condition of anonymity told the Politico: “This could be a real headache for us. Pelosi is going to be furious.”

And rightfully so, of course, The sad part is that Pelosi will be furious with Murtha for him telling the truth. All evidence indicates that the surge is indeed working. That doesn’t mean that Iraq will be stable and peaceful within two months time, but it does mean that the strategy adopted by Bush this year is paying off and that it may be wise for the US to hang in there a while longer.

It also means that the Democrats were wrong.

And that they can’t deliver on their promise to withdraw the troops asap.

It’s amazing to see how the political landscape has changed. A couple of months ago Bush had no credibility left, Republicans were waiting to jump from the sinking ship… now, Democrats suddenly have a problem and a consensus is emerging that the surge is, truly, working. Suddenly, Republicans dont look so bad anymore do they?

Story Here
I am convinced there is NO WAY the Democrats can Run this Country, the War On Terror, National Security, or anything else at this point. Is this not the most Treasonous Turnabout by a Congressman you have ever heard?


You low life, cowardly, scumbag! You were a nay sayer from the very beginning, you did everything you could to undermine and weaken our Troops and their families, which I happened to have been one not to long ago. You make me sick. You tried to drive down Troop Morale more than any former Veteran I have seen. You should'nt even be called a Veteran for turning on your own Countrymen during a time OF WAR!! You called our Troops "Murderers" "They are worn out, "They cant win this war" "They murdered Innocent Iraqi's In Haditha" (Which turned out NOT to be true) etc..etc..etc..

You know what? We knew all along the Surge would work and you tried to stop it. Our Troops will come home Victorious and that must gall you to death since you have been against this surge from the beginning.

You Know what Mr. Murtha? We supported our Troops all along this twisted road you assholes in Congress have put us on. You Havent. We have supported our Troops ALL ALONG, you didnt. You have put all Military families through absolute hell, You have played Political football with our Troops lives by bouncing around Troop funding for our Soldiers on the battlefeild, in harms way, NOW. As far as I'm concerned, you Mr. Murtha can kiss my ass! Because your opinion, nor any of the Democrats matters anymore! F*** YOU!!!

Murtha is trying to save his political butt and toeing the line that will get him votes. It may be to late, since he has angered a many of his constitutents. He's a flip, flop lying liberal defeatest trying to back his way out of his hole!

Yeah this is one hell of a flip flop by an absolute traitor to this Country.

Murtha Should be impeached be or censured.


That is exactly how I feel.

His comments should NOT be forgotten, and rammed up his ass every time he makes a statement about anything.

You really know how to lay into someone. I feel sorry for Murtha, should you ever run into him, and give him a piece of your mind.

I gotten to the point to where I have NO pitty for any of the nay sayers anymore, that goes for the Republicans too that abondoned this President during War Time!

What I said about Murtha I meant EVERY word, and that also applies to John Kerry, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Hagel, and on and on..

Somehow "I Told Ya So" just doesnt cut it!

You go, girl! You're exactly right. Murtha is despicable! Moreover, he's an idiot and a traitor to his country.

Remember what happened to Benedict Arnold? These days the left would give him an award!

I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what happens next, re Murtha & Pelosis' relationship and, for that matter, Murtha's "distinguished" status among the rest of the Democrats on the Hill.

He has, after all, just violated the Democrats' golden rule:

"Thou shalt lie, cheat, bear false witness, commit treason and do whatever else it takes to deceive the American people into voting Democrat."

As far as my own opinion of Murtha is concerned, Marie, well... I think you're being far too nice to the mutt.

Murtha is probably the most despicable Democrat politician. He has done everything he can to ensure defeat.

What's wrong with you? A true Republican accepts when someone basically says "I'm wrong" and works with him. Murtha has said it, which means we have something to work with. Our goal as Conservatives is to make this country a better place, not beat the other party into a pulp. This is not a football game where it's us vs. them. This is a "we" situation where we all have to get along or we all perish.

We have to be better than the liberals and bridge the gap.

After all Murtha has said, "I'm Sorry" just doesnt cut it.

I said a long time ago on my blog that I didnt want to hear from all these nay-sayers after the surge worked because they would catch absolute hell from me for trying to stop it to begin with.

I'm sorry and let's all work together now? You cant be serious!

They have a lambasting coming from me.

They have a lambasting coming from all of us, Marie. "Work together?" How many times has Bush asked the Dems to work with him? Have they tried to do that? No! Do they want to listen to anything he has to say or to help our effort in any way? Not that I can see. You said it like it is and they deserve every bit of it. In addition, I believe people who post anonymous comments have something to hide. Could it be he/she's a liberal?

Keep up the good work!

That's a wrongheaded appproach if I ever saw one. Murtha saying he's wrong is sign of weakness and being he is the enemy it's time to stomp him to the ground. No, we give not one inch, he must be completely and totally destroyed and never be able to rear his fat ugly head again.

Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer, is actually good policy. This is a great time for the Republicans to be smart and bring Murtha in to help the Pelosi downfall. Are all of you really naive enough to think otherwise?

Pelosi, Reid and all the rest of the outspoken anti troop demodumbs are going down and we're going to throw them an anchor while their grasping for straws. Murtha is going with them Anon he stood up and shot his fat mouth off and stuck a knife in the backs of the men and women that serve. Now we're going show him the door with the working end of our boot. I met the man that's going to beat him in the next election. This is Murtha's last term and all the things he said and did we're going to make it as miserable as we can while he's still there.

I have a pretty good idea who you are Anon ;-]

How about keep your friends close and get rid of your enemies? Especially those that have stabbed the Troops in the back?


Nancy Pelosi is quite capable of Demolishing Congress all on her own.
