Oberstar is now the senior Democrat on the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, and says it’s natural for Congressman Murtha to visit Minnesota to support Coleen Rowley: "They speak the same language of truth, integrity and telling it like it is," Oberstar said. "They are my good friends and I admire them for standing up and telling Americans the inconvenient truths and how to address the mistakes that this Administration has made."Mr. Oberstar, was Mr. Murtha speaking the "language of truth" when he said that Marines had killed innocent civilians "in cold blood"? Was Mr. Murtha speaking the "language of truth" when he said that "Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them, and they killed innocent civilians in cold blood"? Was Mr. Murtha speaking the "language of truth" when he said that "There was no firefight. There was no IED that killed those innocent people"?
It speaks volumes that Mr. Oberstar would say something this absurd for a candidate. It also speaks volumes about what little it obviously takes for Democrats to think of a district as competitive. When people find out that Rowley is a supporter of Morther Sheehan, Rowley will be fortunate to get 40 percent of the vote here.
