Yes, this man.
Rep. John Murtha lives in another world. Or maybe he hears voices. What else could explain these unexplainable predictions for 2007?
According to Maha Murtha:
— American troops will be brought home from Iraq by 2007. Either President Bush will bow to public opinion or Democrats will have won control of the House of Representatives and increased pressure on the White House.
— There will be a “tidal wave” that propels Democrats into the majority. Democrats will gain 40-50 seats.
This, of course, is absurd. I’m not about to predict that the Democrats won’t win back a majority in the House of Representatives come November, but they absolutely won’t do it by winning back 40 to 50 seats. That’s laughable.
And I hate to break it to Gampa Murtha, but George W. Bush will not bow to public opinion on Iraq. He may make compromises on smaller issues, but when it comes to the war, he’s committed.
Now go back to your shuffle board game Johnny, and for goodnessakes, don’t forget to take your meds next time.
