Murtha and Hoyer Battle for House Majority Leader

So much for the Democrats playing nice.  They're not even in power yet and fights are breaking out over who gets the most control.  Step in Congressman John Murtha and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer.  Both want to be the House Majority Leader for the next Congress and they don't mind taking swings at each other to get it.


The winner will be the second most powerful person in the House next to Nancy Pelosi, the next Speaker of the House.  Pelosi has already thrown her support behind her good friend John Murtha, but it may not be enough to get him the position.  Steny Hoyer already has a block of 33 Democratic Congressman that will support him.


Both men are for redeploying (withdrawing) American forces from Iraq.  Murtha, a 34-year Marine Corps veteran, has been a harsh critic of the war and stood up against George Bush and his incompetent administration when other Democrats were afraid.  Steny  Hoyer, as Minority Whip is the second most powerful Democrat in this Congress, but he has said little if anything about the failed Iraqi strategy.  He has simply tried not to rock the boat and hold his position as second in command.


All things considered, you must lean toward Murtha on this one.  I might not agree on his Iraq position or on other issues, but we need people in positions of power who stand up for what they believe.  I'm sick and tired of these politicians just telling us what we want to hear.  I'm also sick of Democrats not having a spine to stand up to the GOP, especially when it has been corrupted.


We know Murtha will stand up to the Republicans.  We don't know what Hoyer will do.  The Democrats need leaders and people that won't back down.  John Murtha is the right man for the job.
