via Murtha: the Virtue and Vice of Congress.

RIP to Congressman Jack Murtha from PA.  He died Monday at the age of 77  from complications from having his gall bladder removed.

He was the first Vietnam veteren elected to congress in 1972 on an anti Nixon wave.  He is well known for bringing home the pork.  He nearly was defeated in 2008 after calling his constitients  racist and red necks because they were not going to vote for Obama.  He was wrong to do that even though for some of his people this was also true.  He lives in a purple district which means it could go red or blue.

Jack Murtha was known for also reaching across the ailse to get things done.  In some way the old school politicans are better.  Reaching across the ailse was something that has long since disappered.  To bad that Washington has become so partisan.

RIP to Congressman Jack Murtha may he rest in peace.





JACK MURTHA NOW IN TIGHT RACE IN PA THE RESULT OF HIS RACE BAITING REMARKS. I GUESS THE REDNECK RACISTS DIDN’T LIKE THAT REMARK.

Jack Murtha is in a very close race with his Republican opponent. His poll numbers dropped thanks to both remarks that he made. He first called Western PA a bunch of racists. Then he followed up by calling us red necks. I guess the voters of Western PA are tired of being insulted and called racist. Let’s see first was the Obama campaign after he lost PA then it was the media around the same time. Now we are being called racist by a man who is supposed to represent us in Congress. I don’t get why in the World the Democrats keep insulting the entire state.
They don’t want our vote. They are acting like they did when they sent us the email telling us to stay home on Election day or when they told us to get on the Straight Talk Express.
I say we go out in vote in record numbers. I say we show everyone that the way to win a vote is not to insult the voters.
This is how the Socialist act. They have no respect for voters because they want to get rid of the voters and run this Country taking away all of our rights.





JACK MURTHA PLAYS THE RACIST CARD AGAIN THIS TIME THE MON VALLEY.

Jack Murtha the Congressman from Western PA who made news last week by calling the people of Western PA a bunch of racists. He apologized for that but yesterday he made another remark this time he limited the area to just the Mon Valley whom he labeled as red necks. His Congressional District includes areas of the Mon Valley.
The Mon Valley was hit hard by the steel mills closing in the 80s. They have been the slowest to come back and the people in a lot of the Mon Valley towns are poor. They also have several towns that have lots of African Americans. Jack Murtha figures that it is OK to brand the people in the Mon Valley because so many of them are poor and it seems the Democrats no longer want the poor people in their party.
I think its time for the people from the Mon Valley to teach both the Obama campaign and Jack Murtha a lesson on playing the race card inappropriately. I cannot believe the arrogance.
I know the Obots are going to say we cannot blame this on Obama of course to hear them tell it you can’t blame that skinny little twig for anything. Well guess what it is his fault he is supposed to control his message. I guess his message is to call White people racist and black people jealous. I do not know what I would be jealous of an ugly, skinny, big ear racist, sexist pig for I don’t know but that is their attitude.
