Rep. Murtha speaks the Truth, Again

Replacing Secretary Donald Rumsfeld with an other Conservative Republican who is only loyal to President Bush rather than to the American people, will not change situation on the ground in Iraq and policy coming out of Republican White House.

U.S. Rep. John Murtha is one of a few Democrats willing to speak the truth to power.
U.S. Rep. John Murtha, continuing his criticism of President Bush's handling of the Iraq war, said today it would take more than Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's resignation to restore Bush's credibility in the Middle East and with the American public.

The only way Bush can show he is ready to seriously change direction and pursue a diplomatic solution to the war is if he makes "substantial" changes in his administration, Murtha told about 100 people attending a luncheon sponsored by the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh at the DoubleTree Hotel, Downtown.

"Nobody can believe these guys anymore," Murtha, D-Johnstown, told reporters after his speech, in which he listed the reasons he believes the Bush administration has "mishandled, mischaracterized and misrepresented" the planning and management of the war. [..]

Unless "we replace the people responsible for the failed plan" the U.S. will not be able to get the international help and cooperation it needs, Murtha said during his half-hour speech. He also again criticized Rumsfeld, saying he and Bush "were wrong when it came to Iraq" but "won't admit it."
Indeed, nobody believes these guys anymore. Democrats need to make the case the people responsible for failed plans are all Republicans. If you want a change, vote Democratic in 2006 and 2008.
