Read the AP report to catch up on today’s back and forth on the Murtha resolution. The highlight:
The fiery, emotional debate climaxed when Rep. Jean Schmidt, R-Ohio, the most junior member of the House, told of a phone call she received from a Marine colonel.
“He asked me to send Congress a message - stay the course. He also asked me to send Congressman Murtha a message - that cowards cut and run, Marines never do,” Schmidt said.
Democrats booed and shouted her down - causing the House to come to a standstill.
Rep. Harold Ford (news, bio, voting record), D-Tenn., charged across the chamber’s center aisle screaming that it was an uncalled for personal attack. “You guys are pathetic. Pathetic,” yelled Rep. Marty Meehan (news, bio, voting record), D-Mass.
Most Republicans oppose Murtha’s call for withdrawal, and some Democrats also have been reluctant to back his position.
C-Span is replaying the debate from earlier today right now. Stay tuned.
