[MIKE WALLACE:] Why has [your] policy not been endorsed by potential Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden or John Kerry?I think Murtha is WRONG about Kerry and Biden and Hillary AND wrong about Iraq. They don't endorse his policy because they understand that it is a BAD policy. They don't condemn it in public - as they should - because they dare not risk losing the base of today's Democrat party: the Loony Left. What does our miltary think of Murtha? here's another quote from 60MINUTES:
[JOHN MURTHA:] "Because," says Murtha laughing, "they’re afraid. They’re afraid. They don’t understand it. ... They think there’s a safe way to work their way through this."
General Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Murtha's comments are damaging to recruiting and hurting the troops. "It’s damaging the morale of the troops who are deployed and it’s damaging the morale of their families who believe in what they are doing to serve this country," Gen. Pace said.Pace is right; Murtha is wrong. And Murtha's comments HURT us. He should shut the eff up.
