Redeploy Murtha

John Murtha (D, PA) is the poster child for term limits. Having served in Congress for more than 30 years, it is high time for his redeployment… to the pasture.

There comes a time in each person’s life when the little gray cells of the brain cease to function. In Murtha’s case, that occurred some time ago. But clearly, he is not the man he used to be.

The Democrats’ penchant for using “war heroes” with dubious records to somehow inoculate themselves against criticism is as shallow and callous as it is transparent. Murtha, like Kerry, is a phony warrior who does not support the troops. Both “heroes” have repeatedly insulted true American warriors by accusing them of all sorts of heinous crimes without any supporting evidence. They stand in the great tradition of Benedict Arnold.

I, for one, am sick and tired of mouthing the obligatory, “we thank you for your service,” to anti-military, out-of-touch cowards masquerading as representatives of the American people. Murtha and Kerry are cynical politicians whose sole motivation is power. They long ago gave up any claim to honor. Their betrayal of America’s fighting men and women and their eagerness to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory deserve only contempt.

The complete lack of logic… and seriousness… of their positions on the War on Terror is nothing short of dangerous. They and their ilk need to be redeployed as soon as possible.
