WASHINGTON - A statement from a pro-defense Democrat that the Pentagon (news - web sites)'s current military strategy in Iraq (news - web sites) made the war unwinnable drew a sharp rebuke Thursday from Republicans, who accused Democrats of using the war for political gain.

~snip~

"We cannot prevail in this war as it is going today," Murtha said Thursday at a news conference with House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi. Murtha said the incidents of prison abuse in Iraq were a symptom of a problem where U.S. troops in Iraq are undermanned, inadequately equipped and poorly trained. "We either have to mobilize or we have to get out," Murtha said, adding that he supported increasing U.S. troop strength rather than pulling out.


Republicans responded at their own news conference, with Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, saying that "this morning, in a calculated and craven political stunt, the national Democratic Party declared its surrender in the war on terror."


He said Democrats "want to win the White House more than they want to win the war, and our enemies know it."


Democrats, said Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, "basically are giving aid and comfort to the enemy."

Murtha better be ready for the "unpatriotic" label that will be coming his way.

2. Murtha should bring up Delay's war record
Delay bravely fought the war against cockroaches. He would have fought in Vietnam, but all the slots were taken by minorities. Damn affirmative action!

,...and the American people are beginning to take notice.

Let them scream their bully bullshit.

They are shooting themselves in the foot with that crap because only a segment of the American population are that far to the right.
