Johnson Calls War in Iraq a Distraction

Over 2,700 American soldiers dead...More than 20,000 wounded...More than 100,000 Iraqi civilians killed...Over $500 billion spent...

What does all of this add up to for Nancy Johnson?

Apparently nothing more than a distraction.

You really can't make this stuff up folks. In a story appearing in The Register Citizen, Nancy Johnson criticizes Chris Murphy for talking about the war in Iraq, saying that it is merely a distraction and that she has no control over it. I know it's hard to believe that even Nancy would say something that stupid so read it for yourself:
Johnson accused Murphy of distracting voters by bringing forward national issues such as the war in Iraq.

"I believe some very serious mistakes have been made," she said of the conflict overseas.

Johnson added that she wished to concentrate on issues more local to Connecticut that fall within the realm of her position's control.

"Nancy Johnson calling this war a distraction is just as offensive as the President calling it is a comma," Murphy said Friday. He added that Johnson had voted for the war and that congress could control the war.
You've got to be kidding me! Iraq is nothing more than a distraction? Then I guess Johnson would agree with Bush's belief that Iraq is "just a comma." These are the supposed leaders of our country? I'll let Jack Cafferty handle the outrageousness of these statements:

Since Nancy Johnson views Iraq as nothing more than a distraction, I guess it should come as no surprise that she has opposed helping Iraq veterans. Johnson has voted against increases in pay and healthcare for our troops. Fortunately, we have the DCCC to remind us of her record:
