Patrick Murphy Calls Out The President

U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy just delivered a body blow to President Bush.

Patrick Murphy Calls Out The President


After a series of polished but polite political speeches, the sound of rowhouse Philadelphia just caught my ear on C-Span.

It was U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Pa., the boyish Iraq War vet, flanked by 25 fellow vets.

And he delivered a body blow to George W. Bush.

"For eight long years we've had a president who rushed to stand in front of soldiers at political rallies, but abandoned them at Walter Reed," he csaid.

He touted Barack Obama as a senator who's led the charge for homeless vets and those who have served, but suffer from mental disabilities. He said American needs a smarter and tougher foreign policy, one that will take the fight to Afghanistan, where terrorists grow stronger.

Nothing polite about this speech. A little Philly-style piece-of-mind.
