Sen. Murphy clueless on role of the military
Regarding the front-page article, “Murphy, Blumenthal call for investigation of Capitol's security, response to riots,” (Jan. 7), Sen. Chris Murphy is quoted as saying, “Why are we spending $700 billion on the military every year if the military can't even defend the United States Capitol.” With all due respect (and not much is due), what a clueless, disconnected buffoon.
I suppose we should not be too surprised − he is a stalwart of the party that includes members who promised to “defund the police.” I would say “bring in the clowns” but We the People have already done that; by hook or by crook. Strap on your head gear and hold on to your wallets!
