Tell Harry Reid To Strip Lieberman Of All Democratic Committee Positions
Tell Harry Reid To Strip Lieberman Of All Democratic Committee Positions
Posted by Stacey Tallitsch

Ned Lamont won a major victory for the Democratic Party in Connecticut. However, Senator Joe Lieberman has self-proclaimed himself a martyr of partisanship. Lieberman has decided to file petitions and run against the democratic nominee in November because Joe is for Joe, not the Democratic Party he feigned to represent. I believe that Joe Lieberman has now earned the partisanship of which he so loudly professed to be a victim.

While every major Democrat calls for defeated Joe Lieberman to do the right thing and abandon his Independent bid for the CT Senate seat, when asked if anyone could call and get him to change his mind, he said, Respectfully, no. He refuses to listen to the leaders of the Party that made him their nominee for Vice President in 2000. Of course he stopped listening to his constitutents a long time ago on the issues they cared about. He sure doesnt respect the results of their primary election.

While this all is happening, Karl Rove, reportedly passed on an offer by Bush to help saying, the boss wants to help anyway he can. And just why is the top Republican political operative so interested in helping Joe Lieberman? Hes just the kind of petty partisan they like best, the kind that votes REPUBLICAN when it really matters.

Please join me in asking your Senators to call on Harry Reid to strip Joseph Lieberman of all committee assignments. Lieberman no longer represents Democratic values, only his own narcissistic political career. Its time for the Democratic Party to stop listening to Joseph Lieberman, if they themselves are listening to their own constituents at all.

This special action page sends only to your Democratic Senators, if any, plus Harry Reid Sign the Petition Here.

Even if you have Republican Senators, your petition letter, in your own words and with your own passion, will go to Harry Reid. Please take the time to fill this out. Your words have more value and weight than you might imagine.

2. Unnecessary, and potentially counterprductive...
Why hand Lieberman a campaign issue, when he is gonna be gone in 5 months anyway?

There is no way he can just be stripped quietly, there will be objections, and then we will have another intraparty fight taking Lamont and other Democrats off message spending time answering questions about it.

The best way to take away Lieberman's committe assignments is to get Lamont elected!

9. To make an example of him, that's why.
Kill him, and the other animals will fall in line.

It's that simple.

He MUST BE MADE AN EXAMPLE OF.

If the Dems DON'T do this, they will prove they are not fit to govern.

Period.

12. No - it will SUPPORT OTHER DEMS WHO BEHAVE LIKE LAMONT.
Make an example of LIEberman.

Put his head on a pike OUTSIDE the city gates.

Others will think twice before giving aid and comfort to the ENEMY - you know - the REPUKES.

13. Harry Reid can count to 51. Plus, he's no idiot.
He saw what the Republicans did to Jim Jeffords.


Sooner or later, the rabid left-wing blogosphere is going to have to decide whether getting rid of Lieberman is more important than retaking the Senate. Personally, I've always felt that the blogosphere would much rather have a leaner and meaner Democratic minority in the Senate than a majority that includes Lieberman.

15. If progressives go after conservative Democrats in conservative
Edited on Fri Aug-11-06 02:00 AM by w4rma
states I'll give a flip. But LIEberman is a neo-conservative in a progressive state. He should be stripped of his seniority.
