Jaw-dropper of the week: Rep Murtha says the surge is working

John Bresnahan at The Politico examines Murtha’s latest remarks on the surge and contrasts them with defeatist remarks he’s made about the surge in the past.

The money quote actually comes at the end, from a Democrat other than Murtha:

“This could be a real headache for us,” said one top House Democratic aide, speaking on the condition of anonymity. “Pelosi is going to be furious.”

She won’t be the only furious Democrat.

In the meantime, the Congress’ failure to send a clean war funding bill to the President is already having a negative effect on our military which, I suspect, is exactly their intent.

This is “supporting the troops” – Democrat style.
