Chris Matthews is pathetic. He can't help it, he has to walk back the screw ups of the Democratic party. Murtha will be 24 hour entertainment for the next 2 years, since he is Ca-caca.

Are the House Democrats Revolting?

As Riehl and Crittendon says, "Just Sit Back and Enjoy!"

Are the House Democrats Revolting?


The answer is obviously yes.

I find them extremely revolting.

PeterUK

All withdrawals are "Phase withdrawals",gone are the days when the Athenians could be gone from the walls of Troy overnight.It takes as long to redeploy troops as it does deploy them,130,000 personel with full kit takes some moving.
It would be good if there could be some discussion of the buzz phrases being bandied about which are used as a substitute for reality/

Ranger

Hmmm... Does this line strike anyone as familiar?

"The Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history," Pelosi pledged on election night.

Sounds to me kind of like Bill Clinton promising the most ethical administration in history, and we all know how that worked out.

Is this kind of hyperbolic talk an indication of deliberate deception? Just asking.

Larry Elder says Yes on deliberate deception.

Oh, how revolting they are.

Is this kind of hyperbolic talk an indication of deliberate deception? Just asking.

I don't know. But I have noticed that one of the things missing from the last few days is major appearances by George Bush.

When he's on his form, one of Bush's main political assets is a near-infinite supply of rope. If I were advising him, I'd tell him to become as invisible as possible for the next little while. Pelosi and the rest are following modern political practice by proclaiming, and apparently assuming, that winning by a thin and ambiguous margin constitutes a landslide mandate, and it'll be interesting to see what happens when the public comes to believe they have total, in-fee-simple ownership of the problems.

Nothing like creating your own "rock and hard place". Has it been less than 10 days from the night of euphoria? As Abizaid said yesterday to Hillary, "when I come to Washington, I feel despair". Geez, from euphorial triumphalism to despair and its a lame duck congress. Hope springs eternal but ye who live in that die in s**t. I believe Karl Rove is Murtha's campaign manager. Nothing will make W look like a freeking genius than to have Pelosi, Murtha, Hastings and Waxman running things.

When your enemy is destroying themselves -get out of the way. Democratic infighting is a part of who they are as a party. Rahm was able to capitalize on dissatisfaction with the Iraq war and by recruiting conservative candidates. My disappointment comes in when someone like Simmons of Connecticut loses by 97 votes. Was he out campaigning vigorously during this election season or was he complacent like some other Republicans? The repubs that didn't take their House or Senate seat for granted won-those that did Allen and Leach lost.I hope Allen runs for Governor of Virginia and I hope that Leach and Steele get some good adnministrative jobs. Keep Bolton without the title and get a few judges confirmed before the switch.I feel sorry for the Afican-Americans in Maryland-they just blew their best chance of securing a foothold in Maryland politics. Easily the biggest disappointment this election season. As to Burns in Montana- I think they just wanted a younger Senator to represent them.

I think Murtha is blowing smoke before his 15 minutes are up. I doubt he has the votes.

Joe

Murtha is either lying or misinformed on his Iraq details too: oil production is above pre-war levels, as is electricity, potable water, telephones, radio stations, internet access. Infant mortality rate is better too.

This will be fun to watch.

iu

DIA is going to do domestic spy work. CIA analysts are moving to DIA/NSA under Air force, so it makes sense that they want the same powers the CIA has domestically. But Plame did all that work with domestice political groups and used NSA assets to check on them, so maybe DIA is all forgiven CIA and Plame like Fitz's crminal conspiracy investigation.

DIA was pretty much for when CIA screwed up, especially domestically, (under the five year law) and Plame was one of those screw ups; so where is DIA on all this when it gets political?

Ranger

Actually, I am hoping that Murtha wins, because then someone can run a TV add comparing Murtha's pride in his role in convincing Clinton to cut and run from Somlia with UBL's statements that Somalia is where he learned that Americans are cowards that are easy to beat, then asks why Murtha wants to lead America into defeat again. Murtha's seat may be safe, but I have a feeling using him as the offical face of the democratic party for the next two years will help republicans a lot more then democrats in those close districts the dems won with conservative candididates.

DaveP.

So we're gonna have a guy famous for taking money from Middle Easterners for doing their bidding in Congress... in a major leadership position in Congress.

Only the Democrats, folks.

TallDave

the C.I.A. station in Baghdad assessed that Iraq was deteriorating to a chaotic state

Yeah, and I hear their assessment is "a slam dunk case."

Greg D

As a matter of fact, oil production, electricity production, all those things are below pre-war level... We have 130,000 troops on the ground and it’s gotten worse during the last six months.

So, is Murtha that stupid, or does he just think we are? How in the world does "below pre-war level[s]" prove "gotten worse during the last six months"?

maryrose

Ranger:
yes that would be an interesting scenario but I agree with Sue: Murtha's 15 minutes are almost up. His appearance on Hardball to walk back his criminal activity with Abscam and his"crap" comment were priceless. Matthews liked it so much he played it twice on the same program. Murtha is a modern day grifter.

Specter

maryrose,

Yes - Simmons lost. And then what did he do? He graciously stepped aside rather than demand a run-off as was his right (and as any Dem would do - right TT?). BTW - he did campaign very hard, but that has always been a district where it comes down to a few votes. At least in the 15 years I've been up here. But Courtney? He has a rep for raising taxes. Here we go....

clarice

It is entertaining. I am beginning to believe that Murtha is suffering from dementia. Nancy is just stupid.She won the whip slot over Hoyer in large part because she had the support of the Cal Fem delegation.

OT: Here's my piece on the Plame civil suit.
http://americanthinker.com/articles.php?article_id=6046

roanoke

Notice from the transcript-Murtha is so proud of being on 143 talk shows as the anti-war hero he says it twice. Of course Liberals traditionally come here and tell us how dare we question the "authorities" aka the NYT et al.

On those talk shows Murtha leaned on his pal Abizaid quite a bit-using this quote often to describe his position as being aligned with Abiziad's-

Afterward, he went over to see Congressman John Murtha, the 73-year old former Marine who had introduced a resolution the previous November calling for the redeployment of troops from Iraq as soon as practicable. Sitting at the round, dark wood table in the congressman’s office, Abizaid, the one uniformed military commander who had been intimately involved in Iraq from the beginning and who was still at it, indicated he wanted to speak frankly. According to Murtha, Abizaid raised his hand for emphasis and held his thumb and forefinger a quarter of an inch from each other and said, “We’re that far apart.”

Quote from Woodward excerpt in Newsweek.Source

Now that the election is over-they are no longer "close" maybe because Murtha's got so much crap on his hands.

Tom Maguire

Sounds to me kind of like Bill Clinton promising the most ethical administration in history

I thought Clinton promised to make history with his ethics... Mission Accomplished!

Re Somalia - I don't think it generated a lot of buzz but the Times had a story a day or two back that Somalia sent 700 fighters to lebanon to aid Hezbollah. Coordinated by Iran and Syria, natch.

Turning Iraq into the next Somalia - not good.

I think Murtha is blowing smoke before his 15 minutes are up. I doubt he has the votes.

I can see why he might attempt a self-fulfilling lie - what idiot wants to oppose both the incoming Speaker and the next Majority Leader?

But of the lie is exposed, he makes Pelosi look even worse than she is already making herself look.

Of course, if he wins, then the Dems have a corrupt dinosaur who annoys the libs on every issue but Iraq. Possible message - "Just Like having Republicans in Charge, Except For Iraq".

I will never be smart enough to be a Dem strategist.

roanoke

I've got his "Fight Club" nom de guerre-

Mad Murtha the Merde-ist

{Ugh. I tag myself out...}

clarice

Showing once again that Novak is out of the loop, Nancy was just unanimously elected speaker.

Ranger

Well, here is something that I just remembered. The Speaker's job goes to the person that gets the most votes, regardless of the total number, so if Murtha gets the leader slot, then the RNC can start running adds in a lot of blue dog democrat districts over the next two months reminding everyone who Murtha is (ABSCAM, Pork, Proud of convincing Clinton to cut and run from Somalia which leads to UBL beleaving the US is easy to defeat). Then point out that Murtha is Nancy's hand picked choice. Then the tag line "Congress person X ran as a conservative who would clean up congress, but now they are going to vote to install a corrupt leadership under Nancy Pelosi and Jack Murtha."

The point, Pelosi will probably still win, but if she wins with only 210 votes out of a 229 member caucus, she is damaged goods from the outset. And maybe she doesn't even win. And it sets up the 2008 congressional campaign, where every blue dog democrat has to run against a generic add that simply says, they claim to be a conservative, but they voted for Nancy as speaker.

clarice

As to Abazaid, according to Murtha his claim that the Haditha Marines were cold blooded murderers was supported by General Hagee's briefing of him. As it turned out, Hagee never briefed him until AFTER he made that claim.

lurker

Unanimously?

Gee, shows how dumb those democrats are.

Did I read correctly that Murtha won?

clarice

By the way, the WaPo and NYT and Pittsburgh papers can take credit for Murtha..They buried his flaws all of which were pointed out this election by Diane Irey who was a wonderful candidate.

tomU

By the time of OIF, Shinseki had no credibility. He was disloyal to Rumsfeld, back dooring the SecDef by running to Daniel Inoue (then Chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee, thanks to Jim Jeffords) in order to rescue an undeployable monstrosity of a weapons system, called the Crusader, which Rumsfeld had correctly decided to cancel. That strategy was good for Shinseki, only until the Republicans won back the Senate and Shinseki lost his political cover. Rumsfeld was quite correct to in effect sack Shinseki, who had engaged in behavior that he himself would never have tolerated in a subordinate. Finally, sending 3,000,000,000,000 men was the only solution Shinseki ever proposed for ANY problem, knowing it would be a non starter. Richard Schulze noted that this was the way Shinseki and Henry Shelton were able to tell the Clinton Administration "we don't do windows." Any plan to try and get bin Laden in Afghanistan during the 1990s using Special Forces was met by a "no, this is too risky" response, followed by, let's send 100,000 men, knowing that it would be a political non-starter. Sending 100,000 men to Afghanistan was also Shinseki's response to 9/11, thus replicating the Russian experience. It was also the kind of thinking that interested neither Rumsfeld nor Tommy Franks. I should also point out many of the retired flags such as Shinseki, Zinni and Clark, were running the Pentagon when al Qaeda was metastasizing in to the menace that manifested itself on 9/11. None of Clinton's Sec Defs had the ability to ride herd on these guys. They, however, have never been called to account for their mistakes.

Murtha is to Abscam as McCain is to S&L.

moptop - we should demand that Murtha demand that there be a recount! Make the votes public! Is there a paper trail? How do we know that Diebold wasn't involved? If the congresspersons had to show id to get into the capital in order to cast their votes, they may have been disenfranchised. There may be rumors that Hoyer had his people conduct robo-calls to other members. And don't forget, Hoyer just recently used the word "slavenly", clearly he is racist.

He must step down!

rarango

I never gave Pelosi any credit for smarts--ambition yes, intelligence no; she has the same problem with syntax as does the President and clearly did not have her finger on the pulse of the house. It isnt good to start out as damaged goods, no matter how the democrat apologists paint this; I think we will be looking at a much more split congress than the democrats would have liked: the Pelosi/Murtha branch, and the Hoyer branch. Will be interesting to see how the votes went within the democratic caucus.


Bob

Milton Friedman has died.

Truly a brilliant man. He'll be missed but never forgotten.

Some Guy

Of course, Chris Matthews also used to work for Tip O'Neil, the man who got Murtha out of his Abscam trouble. And Matthews was interviewing Murtha about ethics rules. Wonder why Abscam never came up.

moptop

I too had a secret hope that Pelosi was more moderate than she obviously is. Maybe the Congress is more moderate than Pelosi. Since there is nothing to be done about it for two years, I will just think happy thoughts.

It was rich to watch lefty posters twist themselves into knots defending Johnny Abscam. On the other hand, I would not be surprised if many of them had never heard of the video, now on youtube, showing their "decorated hero" negotiating over the size of a bribe with the FBI, and explaining how he needed more cover than the other guys because he wanted to be in the leadership some day. After all, the MSM would not touch the story.

Sara (Squiggler)

Someone upthread asked "where's George Bush?" In case you missed it, he is out of the country. I think yesterday he was in VietNam for a meeting on trade talks, made all the harder by the Congressional vote down of trade with Vietnam just two days before GWB left on the trip.

Looks to me, like Hoyer is in reality the new speaker. Pelosi is just a token.

RDEKNG

Am I the only one who noticed we have a sex scandal already?

"Downtrodden Republicans were enjoying the spectacle of the split between Representative Nancy Pelosi, the incoming speaker, who is publicly pushing Representative John P. Murtha, her longtime ally, and Democrats rallying behind Mr. Hoyer, who has served in the leadership slot beneath Ms. Pelosi for four years".

Sara (Squiggler)

I was looking up a record to see just how many times Murtha has travelled to Iraq. 4 times is the answer, but nothing recently. From an article in USA Today in March 15, 2006, I discovered:

Some of the lawmakers who haven't visited war-torn Iraq include those who routinely deal with military, foreign affairs or intelligence issues. Aides to Democrats Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts and Robert Byrd of West Virginia — the only members of the Senate Armed Services Committee who haven't been to occupied Iraq — say the anti-war senators often meet with commanders, diplomats and soldiers here.

"You do not need to go to Iraq to know that we don't have a policy worthy of the sacrifice of our men and women in uniform," Kennedy spokeswoman Laura Capps says.

Additionally, WAPO is pushing the Hoyer blows Pelosi angle.

I think what we just witnessed JOM'ers, was man about town Jackie Murtha, standing there at a Craps Table, a foot long stogie in his mouth, them cool ivory cubes a'rattlin in his cupped palm, cuff-linked Croupier's singing out "Place Your Bet's", and Lady Luck Pelosi just'a blowin' kisses at him from the far end of that long green felt infield. Jackie slugs a final hit of Scotch, huffs one last hot breath on the dice in his hands, then let's 'em roll, as he bellows out "C'mon Baby, Congress needs a new pair of shoes!"

"Snake Eye's", mono-tone's the head house Croupier. "Craps." With a cold finality the house cleans out all Murtha's chips.

"Craps", say's Jackie, "So eyeball to eyeball means Snake Eye's which means Craps. Now I get it. Crap, crap, crap, crap, crap...", he continues another 143 times. "Well," he say's consoling himself, "at least there's still that good lookin' dame who was blowin' kisses at me," but looking up all he spots is Lady Luck's empty martini glass with a gaudy lip stick stain and a fake eyelash floating in it.

"Where's the skirt?", ask's Jackie.

"Believe she left with Mister Reid and his good friend Abramoff", answers the Croupier. They're in the back room talking, 'Eyeball to Eyeball'."

"Crap", say's Jackie, another 143 times. "Crap crap crap crap crap..."

I'd like to be nearer either coast than inland nearer Orlando and yet close enough so that I can hop over for my granddaughter's performing arts events. She just started high school and is involved with one of the major repertory companies and also performs regularly at both Disney World and Universal Studios. I've regretted not being able to share more in her growing up years.

I told my daughter to start looking for reasonably priced 1 BR apts. and she cautioned me that I better think 2 BR so all the people I'd forgotten I knew will have a place to flop when they come to visit. LOL. I don't care what kind of place as long as they take one tiny little dog and one old cat and one ol' broad.

Good Evening..My name is Billy Missle.
I just happened here when I noticed a blogger named Anonymous posted a blog directed to me from Dale from ATL. Imagine my shock to see this line quoted totally out of context on another blog.

Dale and I were speaking about our daughters

Dale, Whom I don't know, said to me..

"Your son to Iraq; I just hope that he stays safe, and all his comrades as well!

I have some good friends currently over there, and some in Afghanistan as well!

I've tried to re-sign up, to go to either Iraq or Afghanistan; but I'm too old I guess, and the Corps has politely turned me down.

I'd rather go myself, than see my daughters go, that is for sure.

My oldest is just 15; not sure if she's inclined to the military or not; but if she is, I'll support her decision.

I never even told my 3 daughters I was in the military, at all, until about a year ago; my wife started it, and they were shocked to find out I had ever been in!

I think most of the shock was trying to figure out who that "skinny" guy in the Dress Whites was, because it didn't look like "daddy"!
