John Murtha is Sorry

John Murtha is Sorry
By Kate O'Malley

Representative John Murtha is one sorry man, and by sorry, I do not mean apologetic. His efforts to smear the military in the court of public opinion, the Marines in particular, has been elaborate, elongated and disgraceful. It is hard to fathom that this man was ever a member of a group that he seems to hold in such contempt. His distaste has such a powerful hold on him that, when asked on Nightline on January 2, 2006 if he would join today’s military, the Vietnam Veteran and Marine firmly answered, “No.” One can only assume the feeling is mutual.

Murtha’s character assassination of the Haditha Marines, long before the facts were available, and his efforts turn the public opinion against them will go down in American history as one of the most egregious acts of hate and slander against the United States military since…well, the last time anyone from Code Pink opened her mouth.

Is it possible Jphn Murtha suffers from a mental disorder, like post-traumatic stress disorder? He seems psychologically unhinged to me. He has that totally deranged mien about him all the time.

I think he took the money offered to him (Abscam). Though he could be nuts too.
Conservatives love The Marines, but like Murtha, there are some loony ex-Marines. I recently traded posts with one on Craigs List. He is an obsessed anti-Semite and hater of Israel. I was not surprised that he was a Ron Paul supporter.

Murtha is like that other fat-faced ex-Marine Scott somebody or other. You know the guy with glasses who got a lot of face time on TV because he reversed himself on the Iraq war and screamed about how wrong Bush was every time he got in front of a camera.

What was his last name? Musta blocked it out.

Since murtha was a "desk" marine, he doesn't count...he was political because he loved to serve at the Pentagon, not with the troops.
If he HAD served with the troops, he would CARE about them...but to him, they are just numbers, not real people.
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Murtha's Military record (random quotes from Wikipedia's Murtha bio)

The guy doesn't sound like a bum to me.

"Murtha was born into an Irish-American family in New Martinsville, West Virginia; near the border with Ohio and Pennsylvania, and grew up in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania ...

"As a youth, he became an Eagle Scout. He also worked delivering newspapers and at a gas station before graduating from The Kiski School, an all-male boarding school in Saltsburg, Pennsylvania.

"Murtha left Washington and Jefferson College in 1952 to join the Marine Corps and was awarded the American Spirit Honor Medal for displaying outstanding leadership qualities during training. Murtha rose through the ranks to become a drill instructor at Parris Island and was selected for Officer Candidate School at Quantico, Virginia.

"Murtha was then assigned to the Second Marine Division, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

"Murtha remained in the Marine Corps Reserves, and ... attended the University of Pittsburgh on the G.I. Bill, and received a degree in economics.

"Murtha later took graduate courses from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

"Murtha married his wife Joyce on 10 June 1955. They have three children and live in Johnstown.

"In 1959, Murtha, then a captain, took command of the 34th Special Infantry Company, Marine Corps Reserves, in Johnstown ... He volunteered for service in the Vietnam War, serving from 1966 to 1967, serving as a battalion staff officer (S-2 Intelligence Section), receiving the Bronze Star with Valor ... , two Purple Hearts and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry.

Hey Donal, it's a rainy day in West Virginia, but at least we had no tornadoes like Suffolk, Virginia yesterday. They really got the crap kicked out of them by Mother Nature. Remember that Imperial Margarine commercial, it's not nice to fool Mother Nature. Wonder who pissed her off.

We miss you, my bestest buddy! Hope you are feeling better very soon.
