Fun stuff to watch. The second in command in the house is the second most famous unindited co-conspirator in politics, just behind Nixon.

You really have to appreciate someone who doesn't beat around the bush and tells you what he really thinks....

tsquare

I support him to lead the Democrats 1000%

Murtha Madness!

I hope he wins

LarrytheScrabbleGuy

No idea what Pelosi's thinking backing Murtha. Loved his speaking out on the war, hate him on ABSCAM and ethics reform. All the indications though are that Steny Hoyer is going to win the No. 2 slot tomorrow. Murtha isn't second in command in the House and hopefully he never will be.

And I've got a hunch Murtha just torpedoed himself with this bit of nonsense.

tsquare

Oh, I do hope Murtha wins!

Please!?!

Protractor

If tsquare is pulling for him, Murtha is toast.

tsquare

Hey!

Rush indorsed him today!

Does that make Murtha burnt toast?

It strike me that Murtha walked away from the ABSCAM scheme. Me may have left keeping his options open, but there's no evidence that he acted on any of those options.

Compared to the Tom DeLay/Jack Abramoff crap, Murtha's long-ago pecadillos seem to be pretty minor league.

But even if Jack Murtha spent most of his congressional career as "just another politician," something happened about a year ago. Jack Murtha was a tried-and-true supporter of just about anything the Pentagon and the military-industrial complex wanted... until he talked to those in the Pentagon and those on the ground in Iraq last year and was told that George WMD Bush had f*cked it up. When Republicans were calling Murtha a coward, he stood up to them.

Whether he's earned the position of Majority Leader or Whip or Worthy Advisor, Murtha's courage to stand up, against type, for what he came to believe in should count as some kind of courage most of us would like to see in our represenatives in Congress.

Duke Cunningham and Bob Ney most certainly lowered the bar as to what it might take to be a "reform" congressman. They're walking into the pokey whereas Murtha walked away from the ABSCAM bribes. Perhaps that might count for something.

I admire Murtha's courage of his convictions vis a vis the Iraq issue, but have my doubts as to his leadership on the many other issues a new Democratic Congress must address.

Might Murtha have come back and taken the ABSCAM bribes? Nobody knows for sure. Fact is, though, he didn't.

DeLay and Cunningham and Ney and a whole legion of Republicans did come back and take under-the-table money and favors for their votes.

The outrage against Murtha is just so much more Republican spin.

Why is that T Square?
What is your motive for support? Is this Party interest or does the country come first.
I am not sure. I like Murtha and his support of the military along with not being afraid to speak out on the ill concieved Iraq War. I am afraid though that his corporate ties may render him "soft on Bush". These are War Criminals That Need to Be Punished. We Want our Rights Back, NOW!!!!!!!
The voting system needs fixed. Patriot Act and Detainee Bill both need to be shredded and urinated on. The Constitution Needs to Be Our First Priority. Lets save it. If We all Contact our Senators and Congressmen the will get the message. Ike Skelton is already raising hell about the Detainee Bill. We must let them know that all of these oppressive laws are unacceptable.

Protractor

If you mean "endorsed" then yes. He's not only burnt but the toaster is on fire. Quick tsquare get a fork and get him out!

John Evans

Hey!

Rush indorsed him today!

It doesn't help his credibility. Like Having Micheal Jackson recommend your babysitter.

Protractor

John Evans. Give it up. Tsquare cannot be cured. Even with Amendment 2 passing. You cannot reason with those who have no ability to reason. It's like arguing with a three year old. Pointless.

shrugging

Hey, John, isn't the Michael Jackson blast a little low. After all, he wasn't not convicted of anything and we certainly should not be imposing our morals on anyone else.

John Evans

T Square is sure to keep us laughing for a long time. Ha Ha Ha
He almost sounds like Bush sometimes.
T Square is probably Afraid the Gays are coming for him if Nancy Gets in The House. He may get his Rights Reinstated. Scary Stuff.

Protractor

Hey, shrugging. Can't you not avoid not working in another double negative or not?

tsquare

"T Square is sure to keep us laughing for a long time. Ha Ha Ha"


Coming from you John, Gee, I just doen't know what to say.

John Evans

Yes I should not have associated Micheal with Rush. I apologize Micheal.

John Evans

The Square is just having his little post election tantrum. Whaaaaaahh

Protractor

I just sent Rush an autographed picture of Donovan McNabb.

I sent Michael Jackson an autographed picture of...tsqaure.

hahahahahahaha....ohhh...haha!!

shrugging

You guys are fun since you can't keep on subject but I will try harder to wathing the typing skills.

Murtha isn't the only crooked democrat... more might be exposed, soon... ABC News is reporting.

http://blogs.abcnews.com/theblotter/2006/11/abramoff_report_1.html
As convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff reported to federal prison today, a source close to the investigation surrounding his activities told ABC News that Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was one of the members of Congress Abramoff had allegedly implicated in his cooperation with federal prosecutors.

http://blogs.abcnews.com/theblotter/2006/11/abramoff_report.html
Convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff is scheduled to report to federal prison tomorrow, over the objections of federal prosecutors who say they still need his help to pursue leads on officials he allegedly bribed.

Sources close to the investigation say Abramoff has provided information on his dealings with and campaign contributions and gifts to "dozens of members of Congress and staff," including what Abramoff has reportedly described as "six to eight seriously corrupt Democratic senators."

Protractor

Stay on topic? Stick to the talking points? That would make me a Republican. Eeew. Gross. Wandering topics only means more than one thought going through one's brain.

I think I smell waffles. In the middle of the afternoon? Who makes waffles at this hour. That's crazy. Oh that reminds me. I have to pick up some OJ on the way home.

OJ that scumbag. Someone should go on TV and describe how they would murder him IF they were going to do it. Barry Sanders was a better RB than him. Although, Walter Payton is still my all-time favorite. Man I wish he hadn't passed away. Maybe the St. Louis Stallions would have been a reality with him as part owner that would have been cool. But still the Rams had some good years. Oh crap good years. Time to rotate the tires.

Protactor

If there are any crooked Democrats linked to Abramoff get 'em out of there! Every one of them. No tolerance.

Who names their sun "Jack" when their last name ends with the letter "o-f-f" THAT'S going to go over well in prison.

What was the topic of this thread again?

YOU GUYS ARE FUNNY.

BUT SEREIOUSLY, WHY DOES HE THINK ITS "TOTAL CRAP?"
