Murtha Attacks Rove on ‘Cut and Run’ Comments
Posted on Jun 19, 2006
Antiwar Democratic Rep. John Murtha on Karl Rove’s assertion that Democrats are, essentially, cowards on Iraq: “He?s sitting in his air-conditioned office on his big, fat backside—saying stay the course. That?s not a plan!”
Meet the Press:
Russert: Cutting and Running
MURTHA: He’s in New Hampshire. He’s making a political speech. He?s sitting in his air-conditioned office on his big, fat backside-saying stay the course. That?s not a plan! We’ve got to change direction. You can’t sit there in the air-conditioned office and tell troops carrying seventy pounds on their backs, inside these armored vessels-hit with IED’s every day-seeing their friends blown up-their buddies blown up-and he says stay the course? Easy to say that from Washington, DC.
