Murtha: Terrorists win war on terror

Rep. John Murtha voted for the Iraq war. Now his rallying cry as he leads troops into battle is “we’re screwed! For the love of God, we’re so screwed!” If that doesn’t motivate America’s finest and bravest, I don’t know what will.

Murtha now says voting for the war was a mistake, and has recently claimed that the U.S. Army is “broken, worn down.” That’s strange, because so is much of Congress.

Is it a stretch to say that what Murtha is essentially saying is that “terrorists have won the war on terror” when he refers to the military as “broken” and “worn down”? Geez, Winston Churchill he ain’t.

Mr. Murtha, you voted for the war which sent hundreds of thousands of our troops overseas. You signed off to commit our troops to a mission that must be completed. If you’re now against it, do everybody a favor– keep it to yourself!

Murtha makes even Snuffleupagus look like a real “glass is half full” kind of guy.

“Man, that dude is a downer!”
