I suppose that “racist” wasn’t strong enough for Representative Murtha. On Monday, he called his constituents “rednecks.” I suppose they should be thankful though, apparently they were “really redneck” in his eyes a few years ago.
If Bill Russell is smart, he will pound away in Pennsylvania on this. Murtha feels safe enough after 17 terms to insult those he represents. Apparently, Russell is close to keeping up with Murtha’s fundraising efforts. Though I don’t see Murtha losing, he’s doing all he can to give Russell help.
I’m not sure where Murtha might go next? Perhaps Western Pennsylvania is full of “crackers” or “honkeys”? Either way, I find it insulting and I’m in Ohio!
Certain Democrats continue to bring up the race card over and over. How is it that only 3% of black voters support McCain while 44% of white voters support Obama yet it is the white voter who is a racist? I’d love to vote for a black candidate, just give me one who isn’t pushing a borderline Socialist agenda. It’s a shame politicians such as Murtha only see black and white. He totally ignores the fact that policy matters. I’m not about to vote for Obama just because he is black, just like I’m not going to vote for McCain because Palin is a woman.
You can see a video of his comments here.
