Murtha wouldn’t join Military now…

Posted by on January 3, 2006

On the ABC program “Nightline” Murtha was asked if he would join the military today.

“Would you join (the military) today?,” he was asked in an interview taped on Friday.

“No,” replied Murtha of Pennsylvania, the top Democrat on the House of Representatives subcommittee that oversees defense spending and one of his party’s leading spokesmen on military issues.

“And I think you’re saying the average guy out there who’s considering recruitment is justified in saying ‘I don’t want to serve’,” the interviewer continued.

“Exactly right,” said Murtha, who drew White House ire in November after becoming the first ranking Democrat to push for a pullout of U.S. forces from Iraq as soon as it could be done safely.

Ya know, I used to give this guy alittle room rhetorically speaking. He served in a time when Al-Kerry accused him of war crimes. But now… no. He’s free to have the opinion but I happen to think he’s dead wrong…again.

Actually he isn’t saying anything over the edge here. What irritates me is the implication that serving your country today is somehow the “wrong” thing to do.

Bite me Congressman. There are far better men than you who are willing to die for your right to hold uninformed opinions.
