Lieberman says they have formed a "moderate Senator" coalition....
On FOX News, Joe Lieberman made the comment that "moderate Senators" of both Parties had already met. He did not say specifically what they discussed or how many were in the meeting. However, this may be the only hope to stave off the radical agenda of Bush and the right-wingers....

23. Please tell me
Edited on Sun Nov-14-04 06:15 PM by fujiyama
from which states will these liberal senators be elected from?

We lost senate races in NC, LA, SC, OK, AK, SD, GA and FL. In SD Thune claimed that Daschle was obstructing Bush too much. If you think more liberal candidates would have won those races then you must not have realized that every single one of those states voted for Bush, and with the exception of FL, by double digit margins.

Sorry, but I'm not a fan of Lieberman either, but when the senate is ruled by republicans by a margin of 10 seats, courting moderates is probably the only way to stave off RW judges and other appointees.

15. The so called moderate group
of senators has been in existence for several years. They didn't do diddly squat for the last four. They fussed a little - but most of the members ended up voting for all of the most odious pieces of the Bush* agenda.

It's the "moderates" who will sell us out again. It's a small group, but there are enough of them to totally stop the next lunge even further to the right that is on the schedule. But they won't do it.

is not a good way for a newbie to start; you're the one who should show some decorum. Just because I can't stand Lieberman, doesn't mean I'm anti-Semitic (please note the correct spelling!) or that my comment is ignorant. The poster to whom I was responding feels the same, as do others here at DU because IT'S THE TRUTH.

22. Sounds to me like this coalition may provide one of the only
opportunities to stave off this administration's extreme neocon policies, possibly even leading to cooperation between parties to impeach his behind.

But it leaves a bad taste in my mouth that Leibermann went on Faux News to discuss it.

36. I'll tell you why
The Republicans are twelve Senate seats away from a Constitutional super-majority, which is the requisite number of votes for crucial legislative actions.

However, if they all unite, and they also manage to draw enough Democratic Senators' votes, they will be almost totally invincible in the legislature. Unfortunately for us, Democrats are historically far more likely to dissent from their own party or just give tacit assent to the opposition.

To me, this moderate bipartisan coalition sounds like a planned capitulation, and right now we cannot afford to lose anyone to the other side. We know that the Republicans have a dramatic agenda planned and they are determined to do it now or never. If this notoriously fractious group doesn't stick together, we surrender all hope of obstructing their schemes.

on anything that matters, IMO. Or is there more to it... did he vote with the Rpugs on anything impt in the past? Or is there more to it than that? Are folks dissing him only on the basis that he's a moderate?

42. Unfortunately, I have to agree.
On the flip side, a moderate coalition could give centrist repugs the chance to dissent, but in the past it hasn't worked that way.

Especially considering that this was released on faux news, it seems like a right wing stunt.

Along with all the conservative sell-outs.

If they succeed, again, I say, count me out.

The Democratic party has to EARN my vote from now on.

It will be interesting to see how many of us there are, and what these DINOS will do next.

Can't get any worse, after all. The worst that could happen is the way things are now.

Now, if on the other hand, the Democratic Party would go after the progressive and left wing BASE of the party, we might actually begin to WIN some elections.

40. Everyone seems down on this idea.
I personally would find it extremely ironic if Joe Lieberman, the enabler of the 2000 election theft, were now to come along and save our bacon. If he can form some sort of loose coalition of moderates, he could quite likely hinder some of the more far-right legislation destined to come our way, giving us a two-year buffer to the next midterm. But if he could form an actual, relatively strong voting block, it could effectively reverse the GOP gains in the Senate elections.

It could well happen that internecine power plays could lead to significant defections among moderates in the GOP (just look at the browbeating Specter has been taking). This is not such an unlikely circumstance, and if it were to happen, it could signal the first act in Legislative resistance to the right-wing steamroller.

If I were to guess who might join such a block, I would say probably:

Arlen Specter (R) PA
Lincoln Chaffee (R) RI
Susan Collins (R) ME
Olympia Snowe (R) ME
Max Baucus (D) MT
George Voinovich (R) OH
Byron Dorgan (D) ND
Charles Grassley (R) IA
Charles Hagel (R) NE
James Jeffords (I) VT

Am I missing any?

55. That's a good list, and the far right is leaving its moderate fellows, BUT
Will it just be an opportunity for republicans to TELL dems that they'll support them on some issues, then cave when it comes time to actually oppose the far right?

I mean Specter crumbled pretty fast on justice appointments. I can just see:

Repub: Ok, if you vote for this bill, I'll vote for the progressive piece due up next week.
Dem: Ok (votes for repub. bill)

A week passes.

Dem: Ok, now your turn.
Repub: Oh. Sorry, My party told me I have to vote with them or they'll make sure I don't get re-elected. Sorry. (votes against the progressive bill)

That's what I'm scared of.

How willing are these moderates to stick to their guns and oppose the party when times get tough?

Dems have shown that they're willing to defy the party line. And the party has shown it's willing to tolerate that. But, the repub. party has shown an abject refusal to tolerate even the thought of a member voting against the party. (Again, see Specter.) I'm just worried is all.

41. Could help, could hurt
I'm guessing this "moderate" coalition will give the republicans a large crop of democratic supporters for the most part. It could help block some far far right legislation, but I wouldn't count on it. On issues of abortion, social security and taxes, this could benefit us. For everything else it will probably just fillibuster-proof the republican bills. I think Joe likes to be with the winner, so he'll side with the republicans if they're on top.

46. This could help us...here's how:
IF Lieberman and this group and reliably get GOP moderates to defect from conservative coalitions on issues, he can frustrate or stall much of *'s agenda. If the truly radical and religious right don't get their way this term (they think they've finally earned it), they are going to start eating their own, riving the Repug party in two.

54. Tim Ryan on the left then?
He is the one that gave the opposition speech against the draft which you can watch on his web site.

WASHINGTON, D.C. 10-08-04- Today, Congressman Tim Ryan announced that he voted for the Department of Defense (DoD) Authorization bill, which provides almost $450 billion to support our troops.


Because of the Bush Administrations poor planning, our soldiers are struggling to do their jobs without the proper resources, said Ryan. This bill will provide them with the equipment and support they need to meet the ongoing challenges of this difficult and dangerous mission.
