Hackett Hits on Murtha for "foam(ing) at the mouth"

This came from a Mike DeWine e-mail, which referred to this Akron Beacon Journal Piece:

Hackett also is irritated at Democratic Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania, a decorated Marine veteran who has been briefed by military officials on the Haditha deaths and has said that U.S. troops "overreacted because of the pressure on them." Hackett said Murtha is feeding an image of traumatized, out-of-control soldiers like characters in the movies "Rambo" and "The Deer Hunter."

"With one broad stroke, he's recklessly indicted all those Marines ... I don't know if he's gotten addicted to the microphones and the cameras. For him to continue to foam at the mouth, it's irresponsible, it's stupid, it's wrong."

Murtha's office didn't respond to a phone call seeking comment.

It's a good thing for DeWine that the Dems kicked Hackett off the OH Senate Bus.
