Excerpt Of The Day: John Boehner Slams John Murtha’s Underhanded Attempt To Block The Surge

“Murtha’s proposed legislation drew a heated response from the House’s top Republican, Rep. John Boehner of Ohio, who said the bill would “cut off funding for troops in harm’s way by making sure the reinforcements they need to complete their mission in Iraq never arrive.”

“While American troops are fighting radical Islamic terrorists thousands of miles away, it is unthinkable that the United States Congress would move to discredit their mission, cut off their reinforcements, and deny them the resources they need to succeed and return home safely,” Boehner said in a statement.

“The American people will not support a strategy that involves pulling the rug out from under American troops in the combat zone by cutting off their reinforcements and forcing them to face the enemy without our full support,” Boehner added.” — John Boehner

That’s what I like to see: a Republican who isn’t cutting Murtha, Pelosi, or the rest of them an inch of slack for trying to undercut the troops in Iraq for politics sake.
