It's "The Hail Mary Pass" Folks - Lieberman Rips W's War Plan

Lieberman rips W's war plan

BY HELEN KENNEDY
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

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."

Lieberman, an 18-year veteran of the Senate and a former vice presidential nominee, has been stunned by polls showing anti-war challenger Ned Lamont might win the Democratic primary.

6. Confused a bit Joe? Got a terrible consequence from triangulating?
Wondering what could have gone wrong?

Well, a fundamental assumption of triangulation is that your base will remain loyal. It didn't.

8. I though "criticizing the President at this critical time was..."
Oh, right, Joe, that was then. Get lost.

I just saw a poll showing Lamont's lead is growing among likely Dem voters! Go CT!!!!!!

11. That statement 'no longer operative'
:rofl:

:rofl:

I hate to feel this good about someone going down so fast, so far. But I do anyway.

Its like watching someone stumble at the top of a flight of stairs and go tumbling end over end, all the way down, clutching for the railing as they go.

9. "I have always questioned" -- I call bullshit
Gee Joe, it seems like only a couple of months ago you were warning the public about the perils of being against the war in Iraq, or even questioning anything about it. You are so full of shit your eyes are brown, you fucking co-opted hypocrite.

Go explain to 2,500 families how you've always questioned the execution of the war. No, not the families of our military dead; I'm thinking 2,500 families chosen at random in Iraq who've lost mothers, fathers, son, daughters, sisters and brothers to this illegal war. Go explain it to them, and if they're satisfied with your mealy-mouthed whinery, then I'll be satisfied. But you've only got five days left, so you'd better hustle, you self-centered tool.

10. A day late and a dollar short
I look forward to you being able to spend more time with your grandkids, Joe. Hopefully they won't hold it against you personally when they get drafted while we're still "staying the course" fifteen years from now.

15. Joe's vast military experience convinces him ...
... that the invasion and occupation of Iraq was 'right' but just executed incorrectly - as though there were a 'right' way to commit an international war crime.

Hundreds of thousands of Americans marched and protested for SIX MONTHS prior to the invasion of Iraq, warning that there WERE NO WMDs in Iraq, that Iraq had NOTHING to do with 9-11, pointing out that Saddam and bin Laden were enemies, and that there was absolutely no way short of massive mobilization of a broad international effort that could result in anything but a prolonged bloodbath in the streets and residences of Iraq ... for years to come.

The results of this regime's predation were completely and totally foreseeable ... and foreseen. Joe, not alone, was totally and completely blind to this. Fuck him!

Stupid self-agrandizing prick.

You backed every fucking thing these assholes ever did. Cut the fucking lies you dumb hack. No one believes them, not even you.

I am going to laugh me ass of when I watch you fall.

How we ever almost made you VP si beyond me. You are a fascist like the fascists you back. No back peddline at this late date will ever change that.

I piss on you and all neocon pigs you support.

(Would someone please forward this to Joe (kidding)? Doubt he reads DU)
