The Pelosi Factor: Pennsylvania Goes Wobbly on Murtha
They like him!… They really like him!
The Tribune Democrat embraces John Murtha like a smelly dead fish!
Makes you want to cut and run right down to the polling station:
…We would also urge Murtha to sit down with area veterans who clearly have different views on the Iraq conflict than he does.
We are frightened by Murtha’s willingness to align himself with California Democrat Nancy Pelosi. Clearly, Murtha is hoping that relationship paves the way for his ascension to a position of higher power in the House. But we don’t believe our region’s values match well with Pelosi’s, and we don’t see much good coming for the 12th district – even if the relationship benefits the congressman.
Beyond that, Murtha has endeared himself to liberals on both coasts – raising money for his allies in California, New England and elsewhere. We hope he can keep these “friends” and their spending ways in check if the Democrats retake the House.
We are somewhat impressed with Irey, who presents herself as a thoughtful and articulate candidate.
She has some ideas that we’re interested in, including reducing federal spending.
We have opposed closing the borders to immigration, something she supports.
In the end, we endorse Murtha for another go-round in Washington.
What the hell was that?… An endorsement?
And, here is a video dedicated to the Liberal Hawks…
John Murtha, Teddy, Howard Dean, Ramsey Clark, John F. Kerry, Dennis Kucinich, Dick Durbin, Bill Clinton and especially Jim Webb…
Pat Dollard goes after the leaders of today’s democratic party.
