Traitor To America and Our Troops Murtha Vs. Lt. Colonel Bill Russell (USAR ret.) HERO!

Murtha continues his tirade in the 12th Congressional District. In this FOX NEWS report he says NO God damn way.

Taking Murtha Down?

Human Events

Voters are beginning to realize that the longtime congressman does not share their values, says Russell.

“What Mr. Murtha did was attribute the lowest possible motivations to our voters,” he says. “The people in this area tend to vote their values. To say that they are simply racist because they won’t vote for Obama overlooks the fact that Senator Obama has an almost radical pro-abortion platform, as well as a very anti-gun platform. This shows that Murtha has clearly lost touch with the voters.”

Russell, a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel, says this isn’t the first time Murtha has outraged his constituents. In 2005, Murtha, a former Marine, called for an immediate and complete troop withdrawal from Iraq. Two years ago, he called U.S. Marines accused of killing civilians in the Iraqi city of Haditha “cold-blooded murderers.”

“The most vehemently anti-Murtha people I meet are Marines,” Russell says. “They believe he threw them under the bus with his Haditha comments. Overall, veterans have been very, very positive toward me.” He estimates that 90 percent of veterans in the district will choose him over Murtha.

Russell’s campaign has also questioned what Murtha has done to help the economically depressed area, despite securing hundreds of millions of dollars in earmarks.

“After 35 years of earmarks -- earmarks that have hurt business development here -- our biggest export is our adult children,” Russell says, adding that Murtha has voted against coal development in the region.

Russell also says the Murtha campaign has engaged in voter intimidation.

“Back in the early part of my campaign, when I was doing ballot petitions, I had about 15 people tell me ‘Look, I can vote for you, but I can’t sign your petition or donate to your campaign because I or my wife will get fired,’” Russell says. “People were afraid to sign public documents for fear of retribution.”

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

If Murtha gets elected AGAIN after what he has said about our troops, our Marines, then I think those that voted for this POS Murtha, this scum, low life not worth the air he breaths Murtha, deserve the worst kind of karma possible. They do NOT love Amercia, they do NOT respect our military PERIOD! They will be my enemy and I hope those living in Murhta and Russell's area will realize how the rest of Anmerica feels about their vote, that it effects all of America, all of our military not just their world where they live.

The RNC has provided $84,000 to the Russell campaign to put up a TV ad on local stations this week ( source HERE )
The National Republican Congressional Committee will spend $84,000 on an ad that quotes Murtha's recent remarks calling his district racist - as well as past statements about U.S. military personnel killing innocent civilians in Iraq - and ends with the word, "Enough."

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Murtha is a disgrace. He should have been asked to leave congress by his own party after falsely accusing the marines at Haditha. He had no knowledge of wrongdoing but jumped on the leftist bandwagon to condemn them. What a POS.

I heard Colonel Russel on Glenn Beck this morning. He sounded positive and up beat and has a 4 point lead. According to his sources. The media of course has a different take of course, and I suspect it is quite biased.

Murtha has his entire district imtimidated, if anyone signs Russels petition they are likely to lose their jobs or spouses. They said they would vote for him but couldn't sign anything.

Murtha is ture to his yellow color, and the democrat mantra, if they say anything against you...destroy them.

But it looks like the racist comments against his voters was the last straw.

The people of Western Pennsylvania have a chance to show the nation that Murtha's characterization of them is wrong. By voting this man out of office they can show the nation that they're aren't the White Trash Murtha makes them out to be.

Bob,yes, I sure hope the lawsuits against him from two of the Marines take effect. He should be forced out and Russell is the man to beat him in the election that's for sure.

Mark, thank you so much for sharing about Russell being on Glenn Beck that is great. He is really working hard and it is showing too.

BobF, I agree, this is an opportunity for them and they better know the Nation of people that respect our military are watching.

Are you kidding?! There is NO WAY the Dems would ask Murtha to leave the party! He fits right in! Has he ever been chided by even ONE other Senator in his party? No, because they feel EXACTLY the same way he does. And if the people of his district re-elect him, then they deserve the nasty ole sob. How sick do you have to be to pay someone to talk to you like that?

Somewhere recently someone made a suggestion to the effect (this is really getting vague, isn't it?) that true Marines create an effigy of Murtha and rip off his uniform patches and flag and then symbolically turn their backs.

Murtha truly is lower than whale-shit....and that is at the bottom of the ocean!!!!!

I just haven't figured out why people keep electing someone like him over and over. I mean look at how long Kennedy has been in there and he is an old drunken excuse for a human being!!!

I hope that Russell is successful in defeating Murtha but he is only the tip of the iceburg!!! Not only does Murtha need to be removed but so do all of his loser cronies!!!!!!!!
