Lieberman rips W's war plan
Embattled Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman - facing a possible primary defeat Tuesday because of his strong backing for the Iraq war - yesterday launched a Hail Mary attack on the Bush administration's handling of the war.

"I supported our war in Iraq but I have always questioned the way it was being executed," Lieberman said.

"This administration took far too many shortcuts. We continue to suffer the consequences, as do the Iraqi people."

<snip>

But the cheerleader image was cemented last year when Lieberman chided Democratic Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) for suggesting a troop pullout. "We undermine the President's credibility at our nation's peril," Lieberman said last year of war critics.

2. He's always questioned it? Mm-hm, uh huh, okay.
Guess he was doing that in his own highly principled, well-intentioned, very silent way.

52. Couldn't he have at least signalled that in 2004
both when running himself for the nomination and when, as a surrogate for Kerry, he said NOTHING against Bush on Iraq in Florida.

Joe always thought he was so safe, that no one could seriously challenge his position. WRONG, Joe! Your cushy ride on the taxpayers' dime is coming to an end. I'm sure the GOP will not forget all of your loyal service though. They'll find a nice, lucrative position for you after your reign is over. ;) Go get 'em Joe! :rofl:

73. Just for the record....
Is "Joementum" not the lamest, made-up word you've ever heard? It makes me cringe everytime I see or hear it. It's like hearing your parents say "cool" or "rad." Just doesn't and has never sounded right. Pretty much like most of the stuff coming out of Lieberman's mouth.

19. Sharpton: "I was disappointed that every time we came out of the huddle,
it seemed like my friend Joe had {on} the other team's uniform,".
From the article


Liebermans's stament was weak, weak, weak. I don't think he has a command of the issue.

36. "It sounds like he's finally starting to wake up," said Lamont spokeswoman


"It sounds like he's finally starting to wake up," said Lamont spokeswoman Liz Dupont-Diehl.

The Rev. Al Sharpton, campaigning for Lamont yesterday, repeated the main charge against Lieberman: that he's an overly enthusiastic cheerleader for the war.

"I was disappointed that every time we came out of the huddle, it seemed like my friend Joe had the other team's uniform," Sharpton said.

Lieberman's campaign said the senator's attack on the administration was nothing new. "This is one of those great myths that the Lamont campaign have been able to peddle," said spokesman Dan Gerstein. "He's been critical since the war started."

20. Looks like someone saw that latest poll
and once again decided that it was most important to do whatever he needs to do to win his seat again.

Lieberman's campaign slogan may as well be:

Lieberman First, Constituents Second - You've gotta be an egoist before you can be an altruist.

45. That's the big thing with me.
Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 09:44 AM by Lasher
He's not the only Democrat who has supported Junior's invasion of Iraq. And if you look at his overall voting record, there's others who have done a worse job of supporting values that are shared by most Democrats. The thing that really irks me is, he has enthusiastically sold out fellow party members to get attention for himself.

But there's more to it than Lieberman's endorsement of the Iraq war. He has consistently supported Republican talking points. This has made him quite popular on the Sunday talk shows, but apparently most of his constituents have finally had enough.

Mr. Lieberman isn't the only nationally known Democrat who still supports the Iraq war. But he ... has joined the Bush administration by insisting on an upbeat picture of ... Iraq that is increasingly delusional. Moreover, Mr. Lieberman has supported the attempt to label questions about ... Iraq and criticism of the administration's policies ... as unpatriotic. How else is one to interpret his warning, late last year, that "it is time for Democrats who distrust President Bush to acknowledge that he will be Commander-in-Chief for three more critical years, and that in matters of war we undermine Presidential credibility at our nation's peril"?

And it's not just Iraq. A letter sent by Hillary Clinton ... credited Mr. Lieberman with defending Social Security "tooth and nail." Well, ... that's not what happened. In fact, Mr. Lieberman repeatedly supported the administration's scare tactics. "Every year we wait to come up with a solution ...," he declared in March 2005, "costs our children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren $600 billion more."

This claim echoed a Bush administration talking point... But the talking point was simply false... There's more. Mr. Lieberman supported Congressional intervention in the Terri Schiavo affair... And ... Mr. Lieberman showed far more outrage over Bill Clinton's personal life than he has ever shown over Mr. Bush's catastrophic failures as commander in chief. ...

Mr. Lieberman, who is often described as a "centrist," is or was very much at odds not just with the Democratic base but with public opinion as a whole. ... Mr. Lieberman's defenders would have you believe that his increasingly unpopular positions reflect his principles. But ... the common theme in Mr. Lieberman's positions seems to be this: In each case he has taken the stand that is most likely to get him on TV.

You see, the talking-head circuit loves centrists. But a centrist, as defined inside the Beltway, doesn't mean someone whose views are actually in the center... Instead, a Democrat is considered centrist to the extent that he does what Mr. Lieberman does: lends his support to Republican talking points...

If you had stuck to your guns and kept your lips firmly pressed to Dubya's backside, then people would have figured you went down defending what you believed in. Now people are going to realize that the only thing you truly believe is that you are entitled to your Senate seat no matter what.

62. It appears to be real. Here's another source.
"Billions of taxpayer dollars have been squandered. Our soldiers in the field have been shortchanged, and the war effort impeded," Lieberman said during a hearing of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. "The only beneficiaries of waste and fraud are the same bad apples who are responsible for it."

Heck, a three way race is probably exactly what the RePubliCONs are looking for anyway.

83. YES! Clinton and his throngs from the DLC are trying to
prop up Holy Joe in order to protect Hillary's position! A pox on all their slimy, opportunistic, cowardly houses! I want all DLC'ers to quit the Democratic Party and as Al Sharpton says, they come out of the huddle with the other teams shirt on and actually join the other team. Be honest! Stop pretending to give voice the the democratic party constituents. And, Democrats need face the facts that the DLC has highjacked the Democrtic party and to get some balls and enforce party discipline - expel any elected official who got elected with democratic party support, foot soldiers and money, who goes against democratic constituents. Get Rid of these Bastards

66. You're right Joe, but it's too late to be anti-war!
You will be spending time with your family for a long time to come, Joe.

67. 2 problems with this headline
1) That's what the New York Daily News thinks "ripping" is? I should seriously apply for work there.
2) "W's war plan"...hahahahhahahahahahhaaaaa. I needed to laugh like that. Katie Harris won't be around much longer, so it's good to see that the comedy keeps rolling.

71. Better late than never. Of course one has to doubt his
sincerity.

Sorry Joe, you fate was sealed with a kiss.

75. Does Lieberman remind anyone else of the 1992 Bush (Sr.) campaign?
And we all know how that turned out!

If you have any dignity left, you'll withdraw from the CT senate race after you LOSE it to Lamont.

81. He's critical because he wants MORE aggression.
He's a bigger warmonger than Bush. He was rooting for aggression against Iraq when others were comtemplating lifting sanctions in the late 90s.
