Murtha popular with the troops

I get so tired of the lame-o neocons saying how Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) is against the troops and undermining the war effort for criticizing Bush's unneceassary invasion. Yet, talk to the troops themselves and discover that he's actually pretty popular, as noted in this story.

Notes the story: Staff Sgt. Randy Myers, just back from Iraq, said he backs Murtha, an opinion echoed by a number of other troops and their families. Several share his frustration with the conflict.
"I'm not sure we're doing a whole lot of good," Myers, 46, said of the U.S. presence in Iraq. "Everybody thinks we are. We're trying to, but we're not going to change what they want to do, and if they don't want to change, they're not gonna."
Said Sgt. 1st Class George Wozniak, 36, of Murtha: "He's definitely for a strong military and he definitely supports the troops."
