Reasons Why the Left Disgusts Me, Part II

Earlier today, I called Congressman Jack Murtha and the anti-war left stupid. Thank God they're busy proving me right (emphasis added)...
Join us tomorrow at 11:00 AM EST when Congressman Jack Murtha will outline new details of a strategy to use his Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense to oppose the Bush war in Iraq. Congressman Jim Moran, another Committee member, predicts the Committee action will be the “bite” that follows this week’s Congressional “bark” – the three-day debate on a non-binding Congressional resolution.

The Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense has begun consideration of the president’s $93 billion supplemental appropriations request for Iraq. Action on the request will be the first opportunity for the new Congress to exercise its “power-of-the-purse” over the Iraq war.

Chairman Murtha will describe his strategy for not only limiting the deployment of troops to Iraq but undermining other aspects of the president’s foreign and national security policy.
(hat tips: Victory Caucus and Instapundit) I suppose I should give them points for being honest about their intentions, although they will probably edit this soon. But it's good to know that partisanship stops at the water's edge, huh?

Here's a challenge to Barack Obama and the supposed moderates in the Democratic Presidential primary -- disown Murtha. Now. If the press is doing its job, they should ask Biden, Obama, Clinton, Edwards, Richardson and the rest if they agree with efforts to "undermine the President's foreign and national security policy." Not debate, UNDERMINE. And if any of those candidates choose to avoid the topic or answer with political doublespeak, we'll know that they're beholden to their party's left wing far more than they are to trying win the War on Terror.
