    House Anti-Murtha Leader Flip-Flops To Attack Iraq Plan

    Top House conservatives have teamed up with right-wing radio host Hugh Hewitt and other bloggers to launch a campaign attacking Rep. John Murtha’s (D-PA) new Iraq plan, which would attach measures to a defense spending bill requiring that all U.S. forces sent to Iraq are well-trained and well-equipped.

    Rep. Sam Johnson (R-TX) is “leading the effort” to force a House vote on a “binding measure to prevent cutting or restricting money for the war.” During last week’s Iraq debate, Johnson attacked Iraq war critics relentlessly:

    So is your point that politicians have no principles, or that Dems and Repubs are indistinguishable? Maybe your point is that presidents sometimes get us into unpopular wars that the opposing party likes to undermine? No, no wait, maybe your point is that voting to defund a presidents war effort is political BS?

    :D
