Congressmen Murtha and Moran Get Scolded by Vets
In a townhall meeting held last week in Arlington, Virginia, two war veterans of different generations got on the microphone and blasted Representative Murtha for his apparent sudden departure from support of our military, while Representative Moran tried to run interference for him. Check out both of these great video-clips from C-Span coverage of the event. You will be very proud of this General and the young soldier:

Video #2: Sgt. Mark Seavey, Afghanistan Campaign Veteran
To read all about it, go to Michelle's site. I think it's better to watch the short clips first, without knowing the details - then go to her site and read up.
These two Patriotic Men of America speak for me and the vast majority of our veterans and military. Murtha has shown his true colors and stands with the likes of John Kerry and Nancy Pelosi - a man who cares more for politics than for our brave young heroes.
In fact, it would seem that the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Peter Pace, is not all too thrilled with Murtha either. According to an article on the MSNBC site, in reference to Murtha's claim that he would not enlist in today's military, nor expect anyone else to, General Pace stated Thursday:
“That’s damaging to recruiting. It’s damaging to morale of the troops who are deployed, and it’s damaging to the morale of their families who believe in what they are doing to serve this country.”Of course, as the head of JCS, the good General needs to use flowery language. Let me translate that for you:
"HE (Murtha) IS REALLY F**CKING OUR TROOPS HERE!"
