That Didn’t Take Long

The White House slime machine is a model of efficiency. The sun hadn’t even set yesterday before they were sending out their little wormtongues to trash Rep. John Murtha for having the temerity to suggest that the war in Iraq has turned into a disaster and that we should bring the troops home. One little twerp, Rep. Geoff Davis of Kentucky, accused Murtha of treason.

I think it’s important to understand the political climate in which these shameful statements have been made. Ayman Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden’s deputy, as well as Abu Musab Zarqawi, have made it quite clear in their internal propaganda that they cannot win unless they can drive the Americans out. And they know that they can’t do that there, so they’ve brought the battlefield to the halls of Congress. And, frankly, the liberal leadership have put politics ahead of sound, fiscal and national security policy. And what they have done is cooperated with our enemies and are emboldening our enemies.

The White House — on tour in Asia — said that Murtha was “endorsing the policy positions of Michael Moore and the extreme liberal wing of the Democratic Party.”

Would you like to place a bet as to how soon some guy who says he fought in Vietnam with John Murtha comes forward and says that the Congressman didn’t really earn his two Purple Hearts and Bronze Star and that he likes to windsurf on his time off?
