Welcome to Murthaville, home to the John Murtha Institute for Applied Generosity and the John Murtha Attack Submarine Test Facility and Senior Center.
You can always use an extra transport plane -- that's the way I figured it. I knew just where to find one, too. I called Congress.
Our bloated defense budget is another example of how campaign finance skews policy and spending priorities towards those who give the most and often have significant influence.
John Murtha is deeply personally committed to the welfare of veterans and military families and to our wounded. History will judge him as a hero, a public servant and a Marine.
How many more stories must appear before Rep. Murtha is forced from his perch as chairman of Defense Appropriations and denied further opportunity to feather his own nest?
Murtha is a crook, and if the House Democrats were serious about fighting corruption, they would have expelled him from the caucus when the first definitive corruption stories broke.
Obama's proposed tactics in the AfPak region have certainly been scrutinized, but truly vocal criticisms have maintained low decibel levels... until now.
A progressive presidency is a terrible thing to waste. It only comes around once every so often. Wouldn't it be a shame if Americans' hopes for the Obama administration were squandered in Afghanistan?
There will always be co-workers who like to disagree, who think they're never wrong, and who have the ability to suck the energy right out of the room. Don't let them bring you down.
I am now certain that the Democratic Party is fit and ready to lead this nation. I have seen it in action and it works and works well!
John Murtha is in a political dogfight, with wingnuts pouring in money and resources to support a candidate who doesn't even know the district Murtha has represented for 34 years.
The candidate calls himself Lieutenant Colonel Russell. Like him, I'm a retired LtCol, but I seldom go by that title and if I do use it, I always identify myself retired as required by regulations.
The right wing spin doctors raise money off the very name Murtha but what really came out of the Haditha investigations? Not what you think.
We, the taxpayers, will be the ones to pay the bill when it comes due.
f Washington's been a swamp since George W. Bush took office in 2000, then McCain's been wading in it with his thigh-high muck-boots.
Five years ago today, President Bush declared "mission accomplished." 1,827 days later, the U.S. occupation of Iraq continues, and our "mission" remains undefined and open-ended.
