Send Murtha packing!

GOP Congressional nominee Diana Irey, opposing John Murtha this year, has released a statement about his (despicable) remarks concerning the investigation of Marines in Iraq.

Monongahela, PA – Today, Washington County Commissioner and Republican Congressional nominee Diana Irey responded to her opponent’s recent comments claiming that U.S. Troops were responsible for the death of innocent Iraqi civilians.

I was shocked and dismayed by my opponent’s charge that U.S. Marines are responsible for murdering Iraqi civilians in cold blood. Why John Murtha would say such a thing in the wake of an ongoing investigation and accuse our troops of such horrific actions is beyond comprehension,” Irey said.

Murtha made these comments at a press conference yesterday. “Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them and they killed innocent civilians in cold blood,” Murtha said. He made these comments to reporters regarding an incident that occurred November 19th in Haditha, Iraq.

There is no doubt that my opponent’s disregard for the presumption of innocence and Due Process will have an adverse effect on troop morale. Unfortunately, instead of showing support for our military personnel, his partisan rhetoric will only harm our country at this fragile time. His continued comments are a devastating blow to millions of men, women and children in the Middle East who are just getting their first taste of Democracy.” Irey said.

Diana Irey has spent the last decade in public service as a Washington County Commissioner, and she is now running to bring her vision of government responsibility, lower taxes, and family values to the United States Congress as the Representative of Pennsylvania’s 12th District.

From Diana Irey's website:
While John Murtha is calling for an immediate withdrawal from the war against terror, Diana Irey has been standing steadfastly by our fighting men and women and is committed to finishing the job. And while John Murtha is voting to tax our social security benefits, Diana Irey has been holding the line on taxes and government spending.

Don't just get mad, GET BUSY. Send Murtha packing!

The fact that these people can make such erroneous statements without justification is absurd. I am hope in due time these people will be held accountable for their actions.

One more thing. What do you think about Illegals Granted Social Security Benefits?

Can anyone give me the phone number of a good forger?


I need to change the number of years that I have paid into my social security benefit.

Since there is no record of when these "invaders" not immigrants crosssed the border into this country, or how many fake Social Security numbers have been used, it is going to be monstrously difficult for the government to sort out an exact amount these invaders have "contributed" to the Social Security Benefit.

If the government is happy to fork money to these people, why not me?
