Lieberman says Lamont doesn't understand terrorist danger
Lieberman says Lamont doesn't understand terrorist danger

Published August 10 2006

WATERBURY, Conn. -- U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman seized on the terror arrests in Britain Thursday during his first campaign appearance since launching his independent bid for re-election, accusing his Democratic rival of not fully understanding the danger facing the nation.

Lieberman also reiterated his disgust for political partisanship when it comes to national security, saying it's "un-American" in his opinion.

"We are at war with a brutal enemy," Lieberman said during a campaign stop at a Waterbury pizza joint Thursday. "How the heck can we be in a battle in which we are fighting as Democrats and Republicans against each other when these terrorists certainly don't distinguish based on party affiliation? They want to kill any and all of us.

"I'm not saying we shouldn't have healthy disagreement and discussions about national security, but to make it into a partisan political football is just unacceptable and in my opinion un-American," he said.

Lieberman lost by 10,000 votes in Connecticut's Democratic primary on Tuesday to millionaire businessman Ned Lamont, who ran on an anti-war platform. Although top state and national Democrats support Lamont in November's general election, Lieberman on Wednesday filed petitions to run as an independent candidate.

British authorities on Thursday arrested 24 people and said they thwarted a terrorist plot to simultaneously blow up several aircraft heading to the U.S. using explosives smuggled in hand luggage.

It is against this board's rules to promote a third party candidate:

2. Right out of the Bushco Playbook, once again, Joe.
I picture Karl Rove sending a tasty herring down your throat as you clap your flippers together for him ... :eyes:

Lamont understands it all too well, Joe.
He understands that you helped start a dumbass war in a country that did nothing to threaten us after we'd already been attacked by a real terrorist organization. You fucked everything up. You made it worse, Joe.

That's why you're not going to be a Senator anymore.

9. Joe, you don't understand the terrorist nature.
Because of people like you, our military is locked up in a losing battle in Iraq. Because of this, Hezbollah has attacked Israel and Iran has started it's nuclear program. Also, North Korea launched a series of missles. Why? Because they all know that they can get away with doing so because our military can do nothing to them because they are bogged down in Iraq. Also, for a fraction of the cost of the Iraq War, we could have secured our borders.

and he went against the hart/rudman report that infatically said do not give a dime to the taliban unless they turned over bin Laden ..but little lord pissy pants turned over 43 million of your tax money to the taliban on May 22nd 2001..while cheney's haliburton and the energy committee was negotiating an oil pipeline through afganistan???
