Lieberman blasted on all sides at debate

By ANDREW MIGA, Associated Press Writer
8 minutes ago

Sen. Joe Lieberman sat between his Democratic and Republican rivals in Monday's final Connecticut Senate debate and got it from both sides as well as from hecklers.

(snip)

"You constantly distort and, frankly, just tell lies," Lieberman, who ran as an independent after losing the Democratic primary to Lamont, said at the Garde Arts Center New London. "No matter how many millions of his own family's money Ned Lamont spends, the polls show the people of Connecticut are not buying it. They can't be bought."

(snip)

"Senator Lieberman just called me a liar and he made a lot of outrageous accusations," Lamont replied. "Senator, everything we're talking about is your record, and you can't run from your record."

Hecklers interrupted the debate at times, and some chanted "Lieberman Protects Cheney." They were escorted from the theater.

An exasperated Lieberman, a particular target for outbursts from the audience, scolded the hecklers. "C'mon," he said, "let's let the candidates talk."

(snip)

"In the spirit of Halloween, we have a U.S. senator here who's masquerading as a Republican," said Schlesinger, the former mayor of Derby.

1. Lieberman never looked so frail.
And his chin has almost entirely disappeared.

7. I read that he had a bad cold.
Maybe that's why he looks sick and tired.

2. I think the people that say they are supporting him are
giving him a sympathy vote....(I am talking about the Dems)....but he does not deserve any sympathy.....every chance he had he undercut the Dems when voting on issues.....I hope he gets a nasty surprise when he wakes up Nov 8th and realizes he is no longer in Congres.....

That is one of the BEST smack downs I've heard so far...... :rofl:



Go Ned!!! You have GOT to win!

30. Why, It's the SIncerity Tie!
And as HL Mencken said: "In politics, sincerity is everything. Once you can fake that, you've got it made."

6. I just returned from the debate. IT WAS A HOOT!
Joe did NOT do well AT ALL. He wouldn't give answers directly related to the questions and appeared/sounded defensive the entire time. Schlessinger got his digs in on Lieberman as well as making himself look like a complete idiot (IMHO). The Hecklers only fed fuel on the fire enraging Joe.

8. I just got back too! We were in the back row and I had
a very hard time controlling myself. Ned did great! Did you get to march from the parking lot? I felt like I was in a Capra movie. What a great night.

I was taking photos of the parade in the beginning and joined ranks the last third of the leg.
The petite Joe and Schlessinger crowd were in AWE! :)

24. I saw the video of the bagpipers and the Lamont
supporters who numbered in the 100's from what I've read on blogs. If you look at the front page of the NH Register, all they show if LIEberman supporters. They're almost as fair & balanced as Faux News

17. Did Joe's $400,000 secret slush fund come up in the debate?
I didn't get to watch the event; did either of the major party candidates bring up the subject of the $400,000 in cash that Joe spent during the primary but can't account for?

10. I think Ned should have yelled at the protesters instead of Alan.
From what I hear they were LaRouchies but watching on TV it seemed like Lamont supporters.

18. Absolutely when Alan who is pro-privatization btw for a FACT critized hecklers
more applause was given then when the hecklers critized JL. Lamont should have shown that he has balls and criticized the hecklers.

Nevertheless while I have a huge dislike for Lamont, I am considering voting for him. Based on the issues and whether he can beat Pro-Privatization Republican. The hecklers make him look worse tho' as they probably work and volunteer for him and are just bullies. He didn't lift a finger to say that they were not acting on his behalf and that they should allow real debate to happen.

20. I am surprised that Alan didn't use some kind of smart remark like
Show some class, or ask Ned directly if these people didn't volunteer or work for him, and if he denied it then say something like right, sure they don't or even ask if there was some kind of zoo where they need to be put.

Nevertheless even tho' I can't stand little Ned I may wind up voting for him. His candidacy however, I see is probably doing worse than candidates have in other races in the state against incumbents. Wonder why.

in response. If that doesn't wake up the Dems who support him still, I don't know what will...Lamont should make spots with "best of" this debate.
