Rep. John Murtha: Time to Change Direction

Rep. John Murtha: Time to Change Direction:
There are only two plans: mine and the President’s. On second thought, there is only one plan: mine. 'Stay the course' is not a plan.

It is time to change direction. We should fear only our failure to change.

Here is what we can buy with the money we are currently spending on the war:

At the Administration’s current average rate of spending, it will take 47 years to implement the security requirements needed to secure our ports. Yet we can accomplish this with just one month of war spending.

Our local police, fire and emergency responders are dangerously underfunded. About $19.6 billion is needed over the next five years to meet these needs. We can accomplish this with about 3 � months of war spending.
This guy rocks!
