Murtha Speaks

[media id=733] [media id=734] UPDATE (SilentPatriot): Jack Murtha took to the floor today and delivered one of the most impassioned speeches

UPDATE (SilentPatriot): Jack Murtha took to the floor today and delivered one of the most impassioned speeches I've seen in a long long time. He ran through the important provisions in the bill and warned Republicans that a vote against it is a vote against desperately needed care for the troops. He ended on a personal story about his grandmother that almost brought him to tears.

Jack Murtha = Leadership. The right-wing character smears and swiftboating are as mean-spirited as they are disgraceful. The passion in his voice shows how much he truly cares about the troops. Unlike those that just them as pawns and exploit them for political purposes.
