    Rep Murtha (D-PA) sent out a letter saying he wants to be House Majority Leader WHEN the Dems take control of the House in November

    Perhaps Motor Mouth Murtha is not up on current events. The Dems lost a huge election this past Tues in CA 50th. This was an important election the Dems had to win IF they had a prayer of taking the House back

    Murtha is the modern day George McGovern. He is helping to lead the Dems into a political abyss. I for one am stepping aside

    Murtha reminds me of the Clintons. They do not give a damn about their country, what is best for the people, only their own political well being

    Yep it's a major problem for the Dems, the GOP tends to keep that stuff to a minimum. However, we have the problem currently of 'our leaders' playing at being Dems in GOP robes. A whole different set of problems.

    Very true. In PA, where I live, Republicans threw out 14 Republicans incumbents in last months primary.

    It can be done. We can kick out the RINO's (Snow, McCain, Collins, ect) if we get off our ass and VOTE!

    Here is PA, in nearly every case we had Reagan conservatives taking in the incumbent RINO

    The taxpayers of PA are PO'd over spending and taxes (sound familiar?)

    That's the problem in IL, we don't. I'm going to look at both parties for the off year, also the libertarian and independent. Whichever is closest to what I'm looking for, I'll vote for.

    I'll wait for 2008 to decide what to do then.

    When you go with a third party, you might as well vote Democrat

    That is what the libs were hoping for in CA 50th. You had 2 conservatives (one really really conservative and one - well - conservative)

    And the conservative still got 50% and the lib 45%.

    You can vote for whoever you want, but the third party is a wasted vote and will only help the Dems

    Remember, Perot gave us Clinton - twice

    That may be, at the same time it is important to send the message, when the administration has gone out of their way to ignore the base on security, borders, illegal immigration. Then insults the same with a red herring like the Marriage amendment proposal. That is hubris of the worst kind.
