Murtha For President?
A particularly clueless lib
at the Huffpo proclaims his support:This country needs a leader to step up today, to be a symbol of hope, to be a President-in-waiting.
My candidate is Congressman John Murtha from Pennsylvania. If you agree, add your email address below, and then send to a friend right now.
Congressman John P. Murtha looks like a kindly grandfather in his blue suit, white shirt and striped tie, but he breathes fire. He is angry and decent, and when people hear him speak (which he is doing on behalf of scores of candidates all over the country) they shout "Murtha for President!" and the room erupts with cheers. You can feel the beginning of a grassroots campaign following him everywhere he goes.
This is just another variation on Bush Derangement Syndrome. Here's what Wikipedia says about Murtha:Murtha is a somewhat conservative Democrat. He opposes abortion, consistently receiving a 0% rating from NARAL. However he supports stem-cell research. He generally opposes gun control, earning an A+ from the National Rifle Association. He opposes the ban on drilling in ANWR. Murtha was also one of the few Democrats in Congress to vote against the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002.
But you know how it is; he opposes Bush, so the radical left is happy to adopt him as their own. He'll also be older than Reagan was when he ran for reelection in 1984 (76 versus 73).
