Murtha on Russell: "No [expletive] way will a Virginia carpetbagger represent my district"


I'm sure that statement will further endear Murtha to his racist, redneck constituents. Although, I'm still a little puzzled as to how he's been reelected year after year after year. He's a perfect example of why we need term limits.

Until we have term limits though, can we just finally get rid of this guy, along with the rest of the corrupt dinosaurs like him? Please?

I got this from the comment... (Below threshold)
The Mexican:

I got this from the comments at Ace, interesting read about how Barack might be getting his money:
1 Wow, I picked this up from one of the reader's comments in the Galax Journal , re the macing of McCain campaign workers : WHO IS BEHIND BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA About six months ago, I started thinking 'where did the money come from for Obama'. I have four daughters who went to College, and we were middle class, and money was tight. We (including my girls) worked hard and there were lots of student loans.

I started looking into Obama's life. Around 1979 Obama started college at Occidental in California . He is very open about his two years at Occidental, he tried all kinds of drugs and was wasting his time but, even though he had a brilliant mind, did not apply himself to his studies. 'Barry' (that was the name he used all his life) during this time had two roommates, Muhammad Hasan Chandoo and Wahid Hamid, both from Pakistan.

During the summer of 1981, after his second year in college, he made a 'round the world' trip. Stopping to see his mother in Indonesia , next Hyderabad in India, three weeks in Karachi, Pakistan where he stayed with his roommate's family, then off to Africa to visit his father's family. My question - Where did he get the money for this trip? Nether I nor any one of my children would have had money for a trip like this when they where in college.

When he came back he started school at Columbia University in New York . It is at this time he wants everyone to call him Barack-no longer Barry. Do you know what the tuition is at Columbia? It's not cheap to say the least. Where did he get money for tuition? Student Loans? Maybe. After Columbia , he went to Chicago to work as a Community Organizer for $12,000 a year. Why Chicago? Why not New York? He was already living in New York.

By 'chance' he met Antoin 'Tony' Rezko, born in Leppo Syria, and a real estate developer in Chicago . Rezko was convicted of fraud and bribery this year. Rezko, was named 'Entrepreneur of the Decade' by the Arab-American Business and Professional Association'. About two years later, Obama entered Harvard Law School . Do you have any idea what tuition is for Harvard Law School? Where did he get the money for Law School ? More student loans?

After Law school, he went back to Chicago . Rezko offered him a job, which he turned down. But, he did take a job with Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland. Guess what? They represented 'Rezar' which Rezko's firm. Rezko was one of Obama's first major financial contributors when he ran for office in Chicago. In 2003, Rezko threw an early fundraiser for Obama which Chicago Tribune reporter David Mendelland claims was instrumental in providing Obama with 'seed money' for his U.S. Senate race. In 2005, Obama purchased a new home in Kenwoood District of Chicago for $1.65 million (LESS than asking price). With ALL of those Student Loans - Where did he get the money for the property? On the same day Rezko's wife, Rita, purchased the adjoining empty lot for FULL price. The London Times reported that Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi-born Billionaire loaned Rezko $3.5 million three weeks before Obama's new home was purchased. Obama met Nadhmi Auchi, many times with Rezko.

Now, we have Obama running for President. Valerie Jarrett, was Michele Obama's boss. She is now Obama's chief advisor and he does not make any major decisions without talking to her first. Where was Jarrett born? Ready for this? Shiraz, Iran! Do we see a pattern here? Or am I going crazy?

On May 10, 2008 The Times reported, Robert Malley advisor to Obama was 'sacked' after the press found out he was having regular contacts with 'Hamas', which controls Gaza and is connected with and backed by Iran. This past week, buried in the back part of the papers, Iraqi newspapers reported that during Obama's visit to Iraq, he asked their leaders to do nothing about the war until after he is elected, and he will 'Take care of things'.

Oh, and by the way, remember the college roommates that where born in Pakistan ? They are in charge of all those 'small' Internet campaign contribution for Obama. Where is that money coming from? The poor and middle class in this country? Or could it be from the Middle East?

And the final bit of news. On September 7, 2008, The Washington Times posted a verbal slip that was made on 'This Week' with George Stephanapoulos. Obama on talking about his religion said, 'My Muslim faith'. When questioned, 'he made a mistake'. Some mistake! All of the above information I got on line. If you would like to check:

Wikipedia, encyclopedia, Barack Obama; Tony Rezko; Valerie Jarrett: Daily Times - Obama visited Pakistan in 1981; The Washington Times - September 7, 2008; The Times May 10, 2008.

Now the BIG question - If I found out all this information on my own, Why haven't all of our 'intelligent' members of the press been reporting this? A phrase that keeps ringing in my ear - 'Beware of the enemy from within'!!!


Hopefully, next yea... (Below threshold)

Hopefully, next year Murtha's district won't be represented by this fat sack.

An even better scenario would be Murtha being sued by the Marines he libeled, and peeled to his underwear.

Wow, talk about 'anger issu... (Below threshold)

Wow, talk about 'anger issues'. Way to go Murtha. Keep diggin', baby.

The more I hear from Murtha... (Below threshold)
Randy R:

The more I hear from Murtha the more I think he's becoming senile. Seriously. No lucid politician says the things he's been saying publically even if he privately believes it.

As pathetic as Murtha is I ... (Below threshold)

As pathetic as Murtha is I feel stronger about Pelosi or Reid, or B.Fwank. I wish these people would go away. However, if the people in their districts or states want to elect them by majority they have that right. I wouldn't want my right to support and elect the candidate I want hindered by term limits. There is no guarantee that you could get someone better but, you could get someone worse.

We could lure him away with... (Below threshold)

We could lure him away with milk toast and puddin'...or give him a one-way bus ticket to a dog track....

I'm still a little puzzl... (Below threshold)

I'm still a little puzzled as to how he's been reelected year after year after year.

No secret there at all. The perks of office (e.g., access to media and pork) give incumbents vast power over challengers, and loudmouth Murtha has made use of them repeatedly, re-election after re-election, just as every other career politician in both party does.

You're correct that term limits would correct some of that problem, but the U.S. Supreme Court has already poured cold water on that unless Congress itself passed the legislation, and the chances of that happening are about as great as that proverbial snowball in hell.

As a great man once said (paraphrasing), the Murthas will be with us in Congress as long as good men continue to do nothing about them. Therefore, God speed you, Bill Russell!

Why has Murtha been reelect... (Below threshold)

Why has Murtha been reelected year after year? Take a look at the didtrict he represents. I doubt you can find any other physical area so finely gerrymandered as to preclude the possibility of ANY opposition.

If he's got issues with car... (Below threshold)

If he's got issues with carpetbaggers, perhaps he should take them up with Mrs. Clinton.
