  • Joe Lieberman Becoming Democrats Public Enemy # 1 Enemy

    Democrats eye Lieberman's criticism of Obama
    Posted: 07:04 PM ET

    Some Democrats are becoming concerned by Sen. Lieberman's support for Sen. McCain and recent criticism of Sen. Barack Obama, pictured in this 2006 file photo with Lieberman.
    WASHINGTON (AP) Joe Lieberman is fast becoming the Democrats' public enemy No. 1.

    The four-term Connecticut senator, who came tantalizingly close to being Al Gore's vice president in 2000, not only has been campaigning for his pal, presumed Republican nominee John McCain, now he's publicly criticizing the Democrats' standard-bearer, Barack Obama. Lieberman has strayed before, most notably switching from Democrat to independent in 2006 to hold onto his Senate seat after a Democratic primary loss.

    But the latest betrayal has upset Democrats, who often answer in clipped but polite tones when asked about Lieberman. The reason:The independent still caucuses with the Democrats on most issues except the Iraq war, and he holds their slim political majority in his hands.

    "There's a commonly held hope that he's not going to be transformed into an attack dog for Republicans," said Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., an Obama supporter.

    Lieberman has wasted no time in questioning Obama's positions on Iran and Israel, two topics on which Lieberman and McCain agree.

    Just one day after Obama clinched his party's nomination, Lieberman joined Republicans on a McCain campaign teleconference call assailing Obama following his foreign policy address to a leading Jewish group.

    Lieberman accused Obama of blaming U.S. policies for "essentially sort of strengthening" Iran.

    "If Israel is in danger today, it's not because of American foreign policy, which has been strongly supportive of Israel in every way," he said. "It is not because of what we have done in Iraq. It is because Iran is a fanatical terrorist, expansionist state."

    Later that day, during a budget vote in the Senate, Obama led Lieberman to a corner of the Senate floor for a pointed private conversation. Without elaborating, Obama told reporters the chat was about politics. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., had a similar private conversation with Lieberman.

    I don't see why Democrats should be concerned, Liberman is a fucking moron. The points he raises are so easy to disprove, all it takes is a reasonably intelligent person, google, and 5 minutes.

    And besides, when he tried to be a big man and criticize people like Obama on the war, Obama supporters like Chuck Hagel smacked his ass back down:

    They just need to do that any time Lieberman opens his mouth.. I mean, right off the bat I can poke holes in his shitty argument that Iran is an "expansionist state" considering they have never attacked ANYONE in over 100 years, and his claim that nothing the U.S. has done has strengthened Iran is the most idiotic thing I have ever heard. Fuck, I'm willing to guarantee even Israel would not agree with that statement in light of what the Iraq war has done.

    Lieberman fucked up huge, voted for the war, continued to support it, and now he doesn't even want to acknowledge reality and recognize it for the failure it is.... apparently, US policy is never at fault.

      Lieberman is a neoconservative poster boy through and through, but didn’t follow the exodus from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party like the others.


      Still he effectively adopted their political platform in toto.

      Hawkish foreign policy and Israel persevereism – Check.

      Big government, regulatory environment and tax increases that hurt small business – Check.

      Yet for government partnership with big business found in the NAFTA project – Check.


      No more a Trotskyite, not out of the closet as a neocon. I heard he ran as an Independent for senate. If he left the democrats would be better for it.
      Laissez faire laissez passer
