Rep. Moran (D) Serving in the military isn't public service and you need to redistribute your wealth

First, lets start with this video. Congressman Jim Moran has the gall to imply that serving your country in the military for 24 years is not "public service."

Virginia Congressman Jim Moran, D-8th, doesn’t think serving in the military is public service. At the October 6th meeting of the Arlington County Democratic Committee, Moran was videotaped telling fellow party members:

“What [Republicans] do is find candidates, usually stealth candidates, that haven’t been in office, haven’t served or performed in any kind of public service. My opponent is typical, frankly.”

However, Moran’s opponent happens to be Col. Patrick Murray (US Army-Ret.), who served 24 years in uniform, was deployed to four different combat zones, including Baghdad, as part of the 2007 troop surge under Gen. David Petraeus, and was even shot at by foreign combatants. If that isn’t public service, I don’t know what is.

Paper shuffling in Washington, apparently. And this was not Moran’s only military-related misstep.
On October 11th, the Military Officers Association of America sent a letter to the Moran campaign requesting that the congressman stop distributing a flyer clearly implying that MOAA had endorsed Moran for reelection.

“Serving honorably in the military, as Col. Murray did for 24 years, is the best kind of public service anyone can do for our great nation,” says Tommy Valentine, webmaster of “Moran needs to apologize.”

Now check out this video from Jim Moron...oops, I mean Moran on Redistribution of Wealth from 2008~

Jim Moran describes his views on american workers having their wealth redistributed. Go to to learn about the Moran opposition.

 "We have been guided by Republicans that believe in this simplistic notion that people that have wealth are entitled to keep it and they have an atipathy towards a means of re-distributing wealth. They may be able to sustain that for a while... but it doesn't work in the long run." circa 2008

Congressman Jim Moran was first elected in 1990 and is currently carrying out his tenth term as U.S. Representative from Northern Virginia.  



"I realize that on the sea of life, I can't control the weather but I can adjust my sails."
