OMG Look At This and Watch Murtha Lose It! LOL

From the desk of Congressman John Campbell ( Republican) of California

Early in the morning on Sunday, as we were finishing up amendments on the Defense Appropriations bill, I debated an earmark challenge with the Chairman of the Defense Subcommittee on Appropriations, Congressman John Murtha (D-PA). The earmark allocated $2 million to Sherwin-Williams Paint Company to develop what they described as a "paint shield to protect against microbial attacks." As the sponsor of the amendment, Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs-Jones (D-OH) did not come down to defend her earmark. The defense was left to Congressman Murtha.

keep in mind all I wanted to know was:

1) Is this project requested by the Department of Defense? The correct answer is NO.

2) Is this a project that was competitively bid among other potential suppliers? The correct answer again is NO.

3) Will the taxpayer own the rights to any successful product developed? Again, the correct answer, according to Sherwin-Williams’ own brochure for this project is NO.

For those of us in Congress fighting to reform our earmark process, this video is a good example of where we need to start.

HERE is the Video >>>> Just CLICK Here......

Wild Thing's comment........

Congressman John Campbell scrutinizes and ‘pushes’ Murtha for ‘appropriate’ answers. murtha answers to nobody. Just ask him. Watch the Video it is amazing. LOL

The all mighty Murtha doesn't like to be questioned about his dolling out of the taxpayers money to his friends. Murtha has no honor.

Thank you, Darth....I hope you include me in the 99%. Murtha is truly a "Loose Cannonball". I am EXTREMELY ashamed he was in the Marines. I can only assume he sustained a head injury somewhere.

Murtha is a great example for the need of term limits. No more than 8 or 10 years total in Federal elected office.

Don't worry Steve. We still respect the Marines and know most of you are very honorable folks. Murtha was a politician in the making just using the Marine Corps to get his ticket punched.

Is he bipolar?

Murtha is Pelosi's dancing bear. The only thing missing is a skirt, a straw hat, a bell-collar and a brain. The jackass is entirely too stupid to realize he's the main act in the side show.

Darth isn't that something. OH how I wish they had not even been in the military and just maybe not existed at all.

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 8, 2007 11:55 PM

Bob, yes and it sure shows up on this video how Murtha gets riled up being asked hard questions. haahhaha

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 8, 2007 11:57 PM

Steve, hahahaha that has to be it. A head injury that Murtha had. heh heh Good one.

It really makes me angry someone like Murtha, because the rest of the Marines are totally awesome like you Steve, Mark and others I know. Plus my Unlces that were Marines.

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 8, 2007 11:59 PM

Tom I agree I would love term limits. I wonder if that will ever be possible to have that.

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 9, 2007 12:04 AM

Lynn, LOL he might be.

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 9, 2007 12:06 AM

Rhod, LOL that would make a great graphic. hahahhaahahahha
