BootMurtha launches PA District 12 Vets Mailing Goal
Retired Captain Larry Bailey and his newly formed group Veterans For The Truth (VFTT) have launched a "Boot Murtha Project" to redeploy Rep. John Murtha (D-PA). The first salvo in their campaign is to reach approximately 18,000 veterans in Murtha's 12th District of Pennsylvania.
That's a lot of veterans!
Bailey said, "Congressman Murtha has told these veterans many things during his 38-year political career about himself, about our military, about how 'good' he is for them.
"But who's telling them the real facts? Certainly not John Murtha and certainly not the pro-Murtha, cover-up-Murtha's-messes Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Philadelphia Inquirer or the Johnstown Tribune-Democrat!"
So, the people at BootMurtha believe the veterans in Rep. John Murtha's PA District 12 deserve to know the truth about their Congressman. With Murtha's re-election rapidly approaching this Nov. 7th, it is important to arm the veterans in Murtha's 12th district with the facts. In this way, they can help change the outcome of the election.
"They can not only change the outcome in the 12th district of Pennsylvania, they can also change the outcome in the nation by helping to keep Murtha home defending his seat. In this way, he will not be able to travel around the country spreading his pre-trial convictions of our soldiers and his cut-and-run policies," Bailey said.
Boot Murtha has set out to raise funds to mail every veteran in the 12th District "The Truth About Murtha."
It will cost less than two quarters per veteran to accomplish the goal. It will also take time and effort by many folks. Boot Murtha believes that Pennsylvania veterans gave their best for our country and now we need to do likewise for them.
The goal of $7,750.00 has been set to accomplish the mailing. Boot Murtha is seeking the help of fellow concerned citizens to reach that goal. Target date for receiving the needed funds is July 14th.
Time is short!
Please contribute what you can and help us spread the word about this. Each contribution, no matter its size, is greatly appreciated.
Individuals are urged to check the BootMurtha.com homepage daily for updates on the progress being made to reach the goal!

What a disgusting piece of crap that jerk is. I'm 3 states and several hundred miles from that district. If I lived there, I would be doing all I could to get rid of him.
I'm on board.
Meanwhile his brother, Kit, continues to profit greatly but is ignored by MSM. Crooked, politically connected war profiteers deserve the spotlight of public exposure.
Murtha definitely needs to be redeployed - ASAP & PDQ!
Thanks, I'm supporting it.
I dealt with Larry Bailey extensively in 04 during the efforts of he and I, Scott Swett (WinterSoldier.com) Swift Boaters and many, many other Vietnam Vets to help expose John "The Snake" Kerry for who and what he really was.
I believe that Larry (a former seal) is an honorable man and dedicated to help preserve the honor and integrity of our military and I will be sending him a donation immediately after this post.
Suggest others check him out and if possible (and you believe like I do, that Murtha (regardless of his service in Nam) has crossed the line of decency and his attack on our military has exceeded the bounds of simply criticizing Bush or the War.
Bailey has a web site that he used in organizing the protest in Washington, for those who remember and its called "Kerry Lied and Good Men Died."
|Murtha's "Cut & Run" Comments on Iraq:
"there's no progress at all"
"it's worse than it was prewar"
"we should immediatley redeploy"
"War cannot be won on the ground"
"I have said it's a civil war"
"We cannot win this militarily. Our tactics themselves keep us from winning,"
|Murtha's Comments on our Troops:
"Would you join (the military) today?," he was asked in an interview. "No," replied Murtha
"And I think you're saying the average guy out there who's considering recruitment is justified in saying 'I don't want to serve'," the interviewer continued. "Exactly right," said Murtha
"we have become a catalyst for violence" in Iraq
Marines "killed innocent civilians in cold blood." at Haditha
"I will not excuse murder, and this is what happened"
"This is worse than Abu Ghraib"
"Hopefully, this is an isolated incident. But we're supposed to be selling ideas of America, ideals of America, and we're losing that war."
"These kind of things have to be brought out immediately," he told "This Week," "because if the Marines got away with it, other Marines might think it's okay."
"What they're saying to me is we're stretching the military too thin. The army is broken, and we couldn't deploy to a second front if we wanted to."
"The troops don't know what to do. They don't have the direction they need in order to supervise the prisoners,"
You do not have to live in the district to help Mrs. Irey win! You can donate to her campaign, sign up to receive e-mails, write letters to the editor, inform vets they can sign up as a supporter and be put on our Irey/Murtha ping list. ;*)
