Murtha & His Chickenhawk Accusations

Family Security Matters: "U.S. Rep. John Murtha, Demagogue, oh sorry, Democrat of Johnstown, Pa., could be called the “Johnstown Flood” in terms of dishonest rhetoric about the Bush administration and the Iraq war. In one of his more ridiculous comments, mirthless Moutha attacked Karl Rove for “sitting in his air-conditioned office on his big, fat backside,” when Mr. Rove warned against cutting and running from completion of the tasks in Iraq that should have been concluded in 1991, but were not. This raises a few perhaps-frivolous questions: does Congressman Moutha decline air-conditioning of his office? Does he stand on his head while working in said office instead of sitting on his backside?

Congressman Moutha is among the loudest supporters of the perfidious propaganda labeling supporters of the Iraq liberation effort “chicken hawks” if they did not serve the U.S. in military combat. He has shamelessly exploited his own military record (for which he deserves respect but no special authority) in his jihad against the administration. According to the Congressman, it’s “easy” to repudiate the call to cut and run from the horrors of Baghdad while sitting in the safety of Washington. Of course, it’s even easier to call for the Iraqis to be abandoned to the tender mercies of the terrorists from Johnstown." more
