McClellan Baffled....So What's New?

White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan says they are baffled why John Murtha (D - Pennsylvania) would want to bring troops home at this time.

Congressman Murtha is a respected veteran and politician who has a record of supporting a strong America. So it is baffling that he is endorsing the policy positions of Michael Moore and the extreme liberal wing of the Democratic party. The eve of an historic democratic election in Iraq is not the time to surrender to the terrorists. After seeing his statement, we remain baffled -- nowhere does he explain how retreating from Iraq makes America safer.

At least McClellan didn't try to label Murtha a traitor. I just can't figure out where Michael Moore comes into the picture. I doubt Murtha has ever met Moore. Isn't this an amazing act of desperation. The Republicans don't call Murtha names the way they usually do when someone speaks out against the White House, but they mention his name in the same breath as Michael Moore in hopes that this act alone will dirty Murtha's reputation. What a stupid little man....McClellan...not Murtha. Murtha's a hero. Murtha's a bona fide hero.

I will leave this with Murtha's response to criticism by Dick Cheney. He says it best.

I like guys who've never been there that criticize us who've been there. I like that. I like guys who got five deferments and never been there and send people to war, and then don't like to hear suggestions about what needs to be done.
