19. He clarified, in no uncertain terms, "Crap"
refers to there are more important items on the agenda, i.e. War. That is his focus and he thinks it is "Crap" wasting time. I am not expressing agreement or disagreement, just pointing out his response as detailed in his interview with Chris Matthews. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15737141/page/2 / and here are some pertinet snippets from the transcript":

"MURTHA: Let me tell you, I agree that we have to return a perception of honesty to the Congress. I agree with what Nancys trying to do. The crap Im talking about is the crap that people have violated the law, the crap that the kind of things that have happened with Abramoff, the kind of things that have happened with some of the members

MATTHEWS: But thats not what you said. Didnt you say it was total crap, what she was proposing?

MURTHA: What I said was, its total crap, the idea we have to deal with an issue like this, whenand it is total crap that we have to deal with an issue like this when weve got a war going on and we got all these other issues -- $8 billion a month were spending"

I, personally, am good with Hoyer or Murtha, BOTH are good guys, BOTH would serve our party. I am not thrilled with the infighting.
