New Hampshire Congresswoman Joins Operation Yellow Elephant!
Wow! Money quote:
Uncle Sam wants you!
The war of words between GOP Chairman Fergus Cullen [above, #1949] and Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH) continues.
Last week, Cullen criticized Shea-Porter's recent speech on the House floor, saying it undermined U.S. troops. Shea-Porter called on Cullen to retract his statement.
Yesterday, Cullen declined to do so. "If she's going to be against this war, she should have the courage of her convictions and vote to end funding," Cullen said.
He described last week's House debate on a resolution expressing congressional disapproval of President Bush's troop surge in Iraq as "shameful."
Shea-Porter hit back: "If Fergus Cullen has the courage of his convictions, he should go enlist, because they're having trouble meeting their quota. He's young, he's single and he's healthy. If he needs to know where the recruiters are, call me."
Hat tip to TPM Cafe.
Here's what Cullen actually said February 14, courtesy of the NHGOP website:
"If the United States stands for one thing around the world, it is freedom," said Fergus Cullen, chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party. "Freedom is the core American value. Generations of Americans have sacrificed to bring the gift of freedom to strangers in foreign lands and to liberate oppressed peoples. Spreading freedom and liberty has been our most important contribution to the global community. It is outrageous that a member of Congress would scoff at freedom and liberty as American values worth fighting for," Cullen said.
OK, Fergus Cullen, it's time for you to Man Up!
