"Future" Majority Leader Murtha says U.S. poses top threat to world peace
Of course he is a ex Marine, a Democrat Marine, no less, so therefore you can't reply or question this moron's judgement. You just have to believe that moving our middle eastern troops to Okinawa is a smart idea...
It must be painful to be a Democrat!The interest on the National Debt ($5.2T) in the next ten years, if allotted to the taxpayers would represent ~ $300 a month per family.

Gawd, it's great to not be a member either party!

What I mean is, just when the momentum is shifting toward the Democrats, they supply a truck load of ammunition for the Repbulicans.
And for your information, I am an Independant not affiliated with either party. I lean conservative nationally, and moderate locally.The interest on the National Debt ($5.2T) in the next ten years, if allotted to the taxpayers would represent ~ $300 a month per family.

Could someone provide Rep Murtha with a globe?"Men sleep peacefully in their beds at night because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."

Murtha only says whatever he needs to say to grab headlines.

Wow - can this guy BE more of an idiot?
Like i've said before. They've tied themselves to this sinking stone. They will reap what they sow.Usually, terrible things that are done with the excuse that progress requires them are not really progress, but just terrible things.

lol - the only Majority he's gonna be leading anytime soon is a majority of disgruntled out-of-power democrats whining about another "stolen" election!Usually, terrible things that are done with the excuse that progress requires them are not really progress, but just terrible things.

Now that the fish wrap has issued a retraction, perhaps y'all will also?Correction: An article in Sunday's editions misinterpreted a comment from U.S. Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., at a town hall meeting in North Miami on Saturday. In his speech, Murtha said U.S. credibility was suffering because of continued U.S. military presence in Iraq ,and the perception that the U.S. is an occupying force. Murtha was citing a recent poll, by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, that indicates a greater percentage of people in 10 of 14 foreign countries consider the U.S. in Iraq a greater danger to world peace than any threats posed by Iran or North Korea.

Is he deneying that he said what is reported, or is he "clarifying" what he "meant" after he was taken to the woodshed by the DNC?The interest on the National Debt ($5.2T) in the next ten years, if allotted to the taxpayers would represent ~ $300 a month per family.

He doesn't have to deny anything. The reporter and the newspaper made a mistake. They've admitted it. Of course, Drudge and Billo never bother to check their facts, and probably won't bother apologizing.

Wow, this thread died a painful death. Leave it to the swiftboaters..."Education: That which discloses to the wise and disguises from the
foolish their lack of understanding."

I'll retract my statement, in light of the correction...
He's slightly less of an idiot.
I contend that US credibility is damaged because people who oppose some of the president's policies and politics shout lies from the rooftop, and then that leads people overseas, when they read reports about what Kennedy, murtha, Dean, Durbin, Pelosi and others have said, to conclude that the US really is the bad guy - or to reinforce that position... Particularly when that's all that gets said... over and over again - things like Gitmo's a gulag, bush lied... yadda yadda yadda ...
THAT'S why we have a bad rep.Usually, terrible things that are done with the excuse that progress requires them are not really progress, but just terrible things.

Cyphen, I think Will Rogers had people like you in mind when he wrote this:
After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him. The moral:
When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut."Education: That which discloses to the wise and disguises from the
foolish their lack of understanding."

I'd actually attribute that quote to the list mentioned above, as well as a few journalists...
funny how they just can't seem to get reality quite right - even the reality they spoke or wrote of in recent history....
Another reason we have a bad rep in the world ... it's a funny thing about being the only one on top....
you're the only target...
imagine, for instance, Darfur... I've seen the US get beat up about the Darfur situation more than the UN. Imagine a news story regarding the travesty in Darfur, and then lambasting Norway for not making it right. Wouldn't seem quite fair, would it?
