John Murtha: "Western PA is Racist."

Article from the PPG. Can someone please get rid of Murtha. So far he's called for the deaths of US Marines who were innocent, taken money illegally for favors and now is calling his own constituents racist because they don't support Barrack Obama's socialist plans.

Murtha expects Obama to win Pa.
Says it has taken time for voters to embrace black candidate
Wednesday, October 15, 2008

U.S. Rep. John Murtha said today he expects Democratic nominee Barack Obama to carry Pennsylvania in next month's presidential election.

Mr. Murtha, a 17-term Democrat from Johnstown, told the Post-Gazette's editorial writers he sees momentum building in Mr. Obama's campaign across the state for the general election after he lost his party's April primary to Hillary Clinton. He thinks Republican John McCain's efforts have been stymied by the country's economic crisis.

"I think Obama is going to win, but I don't think it's going to be a runaway," he said. "I think he wins Pennsylvania."

Mr. Murtha said it has taken time for the state's voters embrace a black presidential candidate.

"There's no question Western Pennsylvania is a racist area," said Mr. Murtha, whose district stretches from Johnstown to Washington County. "The older population is more hesitant."

Mr. Murtha said groups he deals with regularly, such as military veterans and senior citizens, have come around to supporting Mr. Obama in the past three months. He credited Mr. Obama with being the most organized candidate he has ever seen.

More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

They aren't supporting him because he's a no-experience, socialistic, hang-with-the-old-terrorists, WANNABE of a senator.

It's not his color, it's his politics.

Murtha is an ass.
