2. You know what...........thank you.
I don't have cable television, and this is by design. So I wanted to stop and thank you for the numerous clips I've downloaded from your site. This keeps me up to speed with what the talking heads are saying without having to get cable, which I won't do.

Thanks for the service; it's appreciated.

10. Thanks for hosting this--Murtha's speeches are really historic, and
I know hosting doesn't happen for free.

42. You're right, Mom. This is big...no...HUGE. HISTORIC. So proud of him.
Courage, heart, truth. What else can you say about this man? He's a giant.

I'm so proud that he's from Western PA. Saw him speak at my wife's graduation from Waynesburg College in '04. Without naming names, he said that great leaders "listen to experts" and are "flexible" and "know when to admit they are wrong." No mystery who he was alluding to.

Yesterday, he dropped all pretense and made the speech of his life for the good of his country and the young men and women in uniform he cares about so deeply.

This is a brilliant interview, and Murtha throws everything Wolfie has right back in his face. This man didn't jump into his beliefs, either...as he said, he took it one step at a time.

19. saw his talk on C-span reply. WOW!
Not only was he logical, informed and coherent, he was emotional when he talked about those near and dear subjects that so obviously pain him - and should do the same to us.

The GOP response was pathetic, and you could see it in their eyes - they tried to do their talking points thing, but even they were affected by Murtha.

And his answers to questions from various people, even PBS? superb.
I loved his rant about "5 deferments" most of all.

21. Thank you Rep. Murtha
This guy is great. Our friends in 12th Pennsylvania should walk tall tonight. Too bad some of the rest of us are stuck with idiots like Sensenbrenner.

Not for long I hope.

25. Murtha' onto something
something big....

we can declare the military mission over and let the diplomats and politicians begin the political/civil affairs part of the mission.

that's the theme that needs to be developed.

48. Yep.
And it's criminal that everything the CBC says or does is met with eye-rolls and a "there they go again" response from America - if they get noticed at all. The CBC have been the only elected leaders consistently willing to stand up and call the bastards out. They deserve a lot more respect than they get from the press and from the rest of Congress.

That being said, we should take what we can get. If it takes an old, white, hawkish ex-marine saying the same things as Conyers et. al. to get the country to wake the hell up, then Speak, Murtha, Speak!

It's not about who gets the credit, it's about getting the troops home. And, at some point, the nation will have to look at the record of positions the CBC has taken that turned out to be right, and Conyers and co. will finally get the respect they deserve. In the meantime, I'm glad they're there.

Edited on Thu Nov-17-05 09:39 PM by understandinglife
... who've been there. I like that. I like guys who got five deferments and never been there and send people to war, and then don't like to hear suggestions about what needs to be done."


Peace.

A lone voice calling for immediate withdrawal, but a strong and qualified one. Let's begin calling on other dems to join him!

40. We support terrorists Hastert says?
It might have worked during the '04 campaign when people were too polarized to think clearly, but now that a growing number of republicans are turning against the occupation, these broad sweeping attacks the Admin and lackies are making will backfire.

I see it as a sad waste. He still has many loyal, caring supporters who truly believe he should be the next Dem presidential candidate.

45. ***Don't miss this other thread with info for THANKING MURTHA***
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...
thread title (11/17 GD): Please contact Congressman John Murtha and thank him for his integrity.

He needs our support so that he can show it to other Congress members as evidence that they can stop pretending and posturing now. "Stay and finish the job"? WHAT job?

46. This guy spends 37 years in the Marine Corps padding his resume and
we're supposed to take him seriously?

Seriously,KKKarl,please do your best to smear this fine and honorable man. Your tricks aren't so effective anymore and even the most complacent of Americans would be disgusted.

Also, Rep.Murtha would probably smear you as well;mainly,all over the sidewalk.

I see where the chickenhawk pricks are now slinging all the dirt they can at Murtha for telling the truth and calling them out. We need MORE Dem leaders to be like Murtha and voice their strong opposition to this horrible waste of young American lives going on any further.

Bring our troops home NOW!!
