Joe Lieberman To Replace Nikki Haley As UN Ambassador?

Is anyone proud that Joe was a Democrat?

A couple of Connecticut political scientists are not surprised by speculation in Washington that former U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut is on the White House short list to replace U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.
UConn political scientist Ron Schurin says it not unusual for a former U.S. senator to be appointed to the U.N.

“Henry Cabot Lodge was ambassador to the U.N. in the Eisenhower administration. And other political figures such as Adlai Stevenson during the Kennedy administration. President Truman had Senator Warren Austin, a Republican, as one of the American delegates to the U.N. in the early days. And that was a logical move toward cementing the bipartisan foreign policy. So there’s nothing dramatic or unusual about this.”

Sacred Heart University political scientist Gary Rose says Lieberman publicly supported Trump‘s move of the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, so he’s not surprised that Lieberman would be considered for the U.N. job.

7. Remember, Joe,

everything Trump touches dies. You will end up all alone, a pariah, besmirched.

Do you want that?

8. Lieberman's been an apologist for a lot of militantly

nationalist trumpism and attended the opening of the new embassy in Jerusalem that Democrats weren't invited to. Where foreign policy's concerned, he reminds me of Lindsey Graham.

9. Given the possible alternatives,

this may be the best we can hope for. Unfortunately.

13. Please NO. Joe always puts Israel before America.

He'll be "manufacturing consent" and attacking everyone Israel has an issue with.

20. Just To Play Devil's Advocate.........

............I know we all have a problem with Red Joe the turncoat, but let's think about this for a minute. Even after he left the Democratic Party, he still caucused with him, didn't he? I mean, for all his faults, he was still socially liberal on most issues, wasn't he? I guess what I'm thinking of is that I'm pretty sure he actually believes in climate change, so maybe he'd get us back into the UN's good graces on that issue, and maybe repair a few bridges burned by the previous Trump sycophant. Or do you think he'd just follow his marching orders like a good soldier?

21. he went from the Senate to K Street. He follows the orders of whoever

writes the check.

Like a lot of the revolving door crowd, what he believes is immaterial if someone pays him to believe something else.
