CORRUPT PORK KING DIES: Rep. John Murtha of Pa. dies at 77. Without Murtha, Dems now one vote short of passing ObamaCare in House


WASHINGTON – A spokesman says Democratic Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania, a retired Marine Corps officer who became an outspoken critic of the Iraq war, has died. He was 77.

He had been suffering complications from gallbladder surgery.

In 1974, Murtha became the first combat veteran of the Vietnam War elected to Congress. He wielded considerable clout for two decades as a leader of the House subcommittee that oversees Pentagon spending. But frustration over the Iraq war led him to call for an immediate pullout of U.S. troops in 2005.

Murtha's congressional career was clouded by questions about his ethics — from the Abscam corruption probe in 1980 to more recent investigations into the special-interest spending known as earmarks and the raising of cash for election campaigns.

Without Murtha, Dems now one vote short of passing ObamaCare in House

  1. well, it sux to say anything bad about the dead, but im glad he isnt serving in congress anymore. he was a corrupt, filthy thief. he spoke down to people in an abusive tone and what he did to the Haditha Marines was disgusting. He was one of a very few men who disgraced the uniform of the Marine Corps. He had no honor and was his ethics terrible. I wish he was just incarcerated, not dead. Let's hope they don't replace him with another embarrassment. rip johnny boy..

  2. Move over Teddy, another red will join you in bed---how many Americans have lost their jobs and are still going to lose thir jobs in the future because of bribery and the selling of favors at the expence of the working people---sorry---for every crook that goes there is the possibility of a replacement that has the citizen's best interest at heart------Murtha and the swimmer shed not a tear anytime some American lost their job because of their policies---and it would be the height of feigning to shed a tear for these practioners of criminality----good riddance

  3. Im not sad, it's the only way these people will leave office. It's been a good year for Americans against destructive politicians. No that's not an organization, but it should be. Now if Pelosi would just go away due to a botched plastic surgery, we could complete a tri-fecta of domestic terrorist wipeouts that even our drones couldn't take out.

  4. What's truly alarming and beyond scary is Nazi Piglosi is second in line to become president if anything happens to the president and vice pres.

    If that tragic set of circumstances ever played out, and Piglosi became president, it would take less then a year before the Semitic people of the Arabian Peninsula would be teaching us the Arabic language---------

    Every democommie that leaves office betters the chance for a job revivial---

    A sure fire way to create jobs and start a job recovery is when Obama, Biden, Piglosi and Reid lose theirs--

    Come this november we will be witnessing a ballot box revolution----move over Teddy and John, company will be joining you.

  5. Business Insider---In December 6,130,000 workers have been unemployed for 27 weeks or more. That's the highest total since they started keeping track since 1948---and there were over a million "discouraged" workers---those are the hard-hit ex-workers who've given up looking for work and therefore not counted in the official stats---you guessed it: it's another Obama record, the highest level ever recorded---

    Ever time one of these bums joins Teddy, flowers bloom more poignantly above ground as they are lowered under ground---
