Skip to comments.Murtha Lashes Out at Dem Leadership Opponent (They're Swift-Boating Me!!)

WASHINGTON The race to be the No. 2 House Democratic leader turned nasty Tuesday, with challenger Rep. John Murtha accusing opponents of "swift-boat style attacks" that hark back to his days being investigated in the FBI's 1980 Abscam sting.
Murtha won endorsement Monday from Nancy Pelosi, who is widely expected to be the House speaker. But Murtha is opposed by some liberals who say they are not happy with the Pennsylvania lawmaker's pro-gun and anti-abortion record. Others say Pelosi took a wrong turn in backing Murtha over her current deputy Rep. Steny Hoyer because Murtha's record is marred by ethics questions of the type Pelosi pledged to clean up in Congress.

As a former Marine, I despise Murtha..............
"Come help me, John Kerry!! They're being mean to me!"
LOL! The Lovefest is over!!
nice to see them interested in the business of governing and releasing their "new direction for america" rather than acting like two year olds throwing temper tantrums over who gets what when..(sarc/off)
ROFLMAO....can you believe this bully ball baby coward!!!!
"because Murtha's record is marred by ethics questions of the type Pelosi pledged to clean up..."
Heh, heh. There goes Alcee Hastings, and Harry Reid... Maybe even Pelosi herself. Also Menendez.
Majority Leader Murtha will energize Republicans much more for 2008. I say let the crook get into power.
Murtha has a pro-gun and anti-abortion record?
Heh...gotta love the Rats attacking Cut-n-Run Murtha from the LEFT. Nooo, can't have a pro-gun Congresscritter anywhere near the reins of power, eh Rats?
Enjoy finding out that it's a crapton harder to actually run a Congress than it is to criticize, Rats.
It's a pro-terrorist-gun and anti-terrorist-abortion record.
Ole Jack was their guy when he was dumping on the Bush administration. Now that they've won and his usefulness is diminished, they'll want him around like they'll want two heads. I can't wait to see how the newly-elected pro-gun, anti-abortion "moderates" in the house like getting the business from the wacko liberals.
Hilarious! These jerks haven't even taken over yet and they're ready to kill each other.
I sure wish he would wear his uppers when he goes on TV.
What a complicated web is woven! The liberal left wants Murtha because he hates the military. The less liberal Dems don't want him because he's pro-gun and pro-life, it seems. All the dems who oppose and who support him all take their side for the worst of reasons. Go figure. Better the dems than the Republicans. We have our problems, but it's not quite this bad. Tell me again. How long have they been in power? What? they haven't gotten there yet? They could have some long months ahead. . .
