Democrat Congressman Dennis Kucinich Calls to Cut Funds for Iraq

Obviously, we must consider the source because Kucinich is a bit of a nutcase. Anyway, while on a blogger conference call with Congressman Boehner, I took advantage and asked him about Kucinich’s announcement. He doesn’t believe that this would succeed because not only would the Republicans fight this, but most of the Democrats would as well, and many of them simply because it’s Kucinich who is proposing this asinine idea.

And while we’re on the topic of asinine ideas, Murtha says he has the votes to defeat Steny Hoyer and become Majority Leader. I asked Congressman Boehner to comment on that as well. He was incredulous and said that he didn’t think Murtha had the votes. Other than that he said he didn’t want to comment on the Democrats’ leadership race. Since the House Dems’ leadership vote takes place tomorrow, we’ll find out soon enough if Murtha is just blowing smoke.

More about the Boehner conference call: He has a very nice voice on the phone. However, he doesn’t read blogs (Insert Faith Hill’s “What?!” here). The only time he comes into contact with blogs is when his staff prints off material for him to read. I was quite surprised to hear that. And when asked if he’s read books on the subject of Islamic terrorism, he said he has but can’t remember which ones off the top of his head.

Update: Hot Air has the video of Murtha not just saying he has the votes for become House Majority Leader but also of Murtha trying to explain the Abscam situation.
