What? You're asking the righties to take responsibility for what their candidate does? Please, they only talk about personal responsibility, but they certainly don't practice it. They're still blaming Clinton, those backward looking righties.
Nice comment from a person who thinks the government needs to be everyones daddy.
Hypocritical lefty, as usual.

This article on their site blasts the Pentagon Bean Counters, including John Murta, as having had a deliterious effect on providing our troops with sufficient body armor.
The entire disastrous story of inferior body armor is due to the simple fact that when it comes to America's Grunts, no one in position of authority cares. Forget the media events and the crocodile tears at Arlington National Cemetery or the amputee wards at Bethesda and Walter Reed.
If any reader is a resident of the 12th Congressional District of Pennsylvania, you might want to read the following quote from your representative's web page:
"Congressman Murtha is so well-respected for his first-hand knowledge of military and defense issues that he has been a trusted adviser to presidents of both parties on military and defense issues and is one of the most effective advocates for the national defense in the country. He is ranking member and former chairman of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, a Vietnam combat veteran and a retired Marine Corps colonel with 37 years of service, a rare combination of experience that enables him to understand defense and military operations from every perspective." (Emphasis added.)
And, If you get the chance, ask Jack Murtha to explain why his beloved Marines are dying today due to inferior body armor after he has spent nearly 32 years as a powerful congressman with real authority over the very defense budgets responsible for fielding the best-available protection for our Grunts?
“We like to say that dependability is more important than ability,” Bill Belichickism....
As you know, you go to war with the army you have not the army you wish you had.
Weren't those the words of the Secretary of Defense??
Nahh...those words, directed at a soldier questioning why they need to salvage scrap to protect themselves...those words wouldn't hurt morale. NOT AT ALL.
But the reich loves Mr. Rumsfailed... His cute little old semi-senile man routine, his quips, his botched post-war plan. The reich loves these things. And they would rather see more troops killed, rather than admitting mistake, and forcing the man they blindly covet, the executive, to replace Rumsfailed with someone more competant.

Personally, I think being in Iraq, living with the knowledge that any day could be your last, is what hurts troop morale. People have every right to criticize a war effort - there is more than just troop morale at stake.
90% of soldiers are so disillusioned that they've become liberals

Oh, Harry, are these the desperate cries of the right, throwing out numbers willy nilly? Anyone can make up numbers. Murtha has a lot of support from veterans and soldiers, in part beause his credentials are impeccable (from a conservative point of view). I would assume support for Murtha would more or less parallel the growing opposition to the war among troops. Do you have other information.
