Murtha is the Enemy

I'm sick and tired of Murtha and his asinine remarks. This "decorated war veteran" is no more than a traitor in my eyes. His constant assaults on the United States, our President, and our troops must stop. His politically charged banter is only hurting our efforts globally and at home as well.

The Arizona Star opens up a recent article with:

"American presence in Iraq is more dangerous to world peace than nuclear threats from North Korea or Iran, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., said to an audience of more than 200 in North Miami Saturday afternoon. "

I don't know what bothers me more, the fact that he can call himself a veteran or that he can call himself a representative of the American public. He should be charged with treason and expelled from office.

You know what I say about this: Democrats make great asses at both ends.

You are absolutely right, he should be charged with treason and expelled from office, and his vocal chords should be removed. He also needs to be kicked very hard in the a$$, because that's where all his brains are located. It might shake them up and get them to working again.

I'm not really "mad" at him... I'm furious!

Hater said...

Yeah! Fuck Murtha. If it wasnt for him 2,500 soldiers would be alive instead of dead for a lie and we could have spent our resources getting bin Laden...Wait a minute...

Dan Trabue said...

He should be charged for treason for WHAT exactly? For having an opinion against the war in Iraq?

Would you REALLY have that added to the definition of "treason"?

And he calls himself a "veteran" because he IS a veteran, or would you have us change the definition of veteran as well?

Come on, NC, you can do better than this. You don't like the fella? Then blast him for whatever legitimate reasons you feel you have, but don't go changing definitions of words.

Hater - crafty little fellow, aren't ya?!?

Dan - you're right, but I tend to get angry and start using rash language. I DO however don't like him.

As of the date and time stamp of this posting the following is correct:
The original first paragraph written by Elizabeth Baier at the Sun-Sentinel has been removed. Since their original correction to their story and my constant vigilance and the constantly updated reporting at, they have rewritten this entire original article.,0,7119684.story

What distinguishes this as unique is that though newspapers certainly update stories all the time, but when doing so, they are required by standard journalism practice to make clear it’s a revision, stating prominently at the top this story is a revision and updating the date of the article to the date of the revision. They have done neither.

Any impression created by this posting that this indicates that the Sun-Sentinel is covering up what they started by making all the uproar of this week over something that “never happened” is not my intent here. (legal disclaimers have become necessary)

Wait until you hear the new development today. The video of Murtha's speech in Miami has been released.

There are a whole lot more things going on behind the scenes with this story than have yet been reported, anywhere. Quite a few people far beyond Ms. Baier and her editor Ms. Rosenhause have shot themselves in the foot.

Write Diana Irey, John Murtha's Republican oponent, asking her about the letter I sent her today.

Looking at the large number of blog posts I've placed throughout the blogsphere in the last 2 weeks, I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking they look like spam.

My apologies to all.

Some interesting things happened today. I received an email response from Bill Pasco(e) of Diana Irey's campaign against John Murtha for the 12th District of Pennsylvania seat in the House of Representatives.

In responding Mr. Pascoe's email, I found it useful to CC that response to him to Elizabeth Baier and her editor Ms. Rosenhause (Managing Editor Sun-Sentinel).

The topic of those emails was "Rovian Architecture Unplugged". If you are interested to learn more, feel free to write them.

Make "Rovian Architechure Unplugged" your subject heading so they know what your inquiry is about.

Their email addresses:

Bill Pascoe (724)258-2300

Elizabeth Baier

Sharon Rosenhause

Despite an email warning to Mr. Pasco to contact Sharon Rosenhause, Managing Editor at the Sun-Sentinel, continues to maintain this page.

"Is Murtha channeling Marty McFly? Congressman’s June 27 press release magically includes information from … June 28?"

In my email exchange with Mr. Pasco yesterday he attempted to float this clever headline with me in an email. I responded to him with this:

If you really want to follow this "rapid crash journalism" course of action of yours, let me assist you in doing so properly. This is John Murtha's original press release issued by Cindy Abram on June 27th.
You can understand why Cindy Abram updated Mr. Murtha's press release from the 27th now, I presume. After all, most would conclude that the Sun-Sentinel, who created this mess to start with, was in a better position to fix what Elizabeth Baier broke than

Please note: Ms. Baier as well as her editor Ms. Rosenhause are recipients of this email.

Mr Pasco(sic), perhaps they will be gracious enough to assist you towards a more lucid understanding of your "Marty McFly" insight.

Apparently Mr. Bill Pascoe puts more faith in continuing his slander strategy than makes sense.

Ms Rosenhause has her own special part in this. The Sun-Sentinel has removed their retraction ... the correction that rewrote the "the shot heard around the world" first paragraph. The Sun-Sentinel has suddenly placed it in their paid archives, removing it from public domain. The only way you will find the unethical rewrite (still in public domain) is through google cache. You may wish to contact her as well.

For the sake of clarity, inquiries regarding THIS turn of events should include the Subject Line: Mr. Bill
