Joe Lieberman Needs to Go

Hello Papamoka Bloggers - I have to add my two cents to Papamoka's regarding Joe Lieberman. Personally, I think he needs to GO, and GO NOW!

I guess we should have expected it. After Harry Reid met with Joe Lieberman yesterday to express his dissatisfaction over his campaign behavior, Lieberman is now talking to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) about the possibility of caucusing with the GOP.

Reid is considering taking Lieberman's committee and subcommittee chairmanships away from him. In my opinion he should. How could Democrats trust Lieberman now? How could they even consider letting that guy caucus with them? The man would rat them out to the Republicans in a heartbeat.

According to the Huffington Post, a Lieberman aide, who requested anonymity, said today that "Lieberman and McConnell have spoken in recent days about the possibility of Lieberman joining the GOP conference."

I personally think Lieberman sold us out during the campaign. He claims to be a Democrat in everything except defense. What the "F" does that mean? Democrats are not soft on terror. Why didn't he just try to encourage improvements while working within our ranks?

I think it's because he wanted McCain or any Republican over a Democrat. Who knows why? I'm sure he has his crazy reasons. It's probably something to do with Israel and Middle East policy. Personally I don't see much of a difference between the parties in those areas.

I hope he enjoys his time with the Republicans, because they're not known for welcoming turn-coats. They will treat him pretty bad. He certainly won't have much influence. He will lose his committees, most of his power, and ultimately look foolish for his failure. What a moron.

I say good riddance. Get rid of him. Toss the tosser. The man is a traitorous scumbag. He turned his back on his party and his constituents. He needs to be FLUSHED!

It is obvious that Lieberman's priority is first the interests of Israel and second the interests of the U.S. I think he backed McCain because he thought John would invade Iran and remove another threat to Israel (just as the Israelis surreptitiously convinced Bush to take out Saddam). O should appoint Lieberman as Ambassador to Israel, where Joe's allegiance lies. That would get him out of the senate and free up a seat for the Dems.

Let's not blame Israel for every lapse in the judgement of President Bush.

The anger against Joe Lieberman goes back to 2006.

He was not the only Senator who continued to support a forever occupation. But even then he was unique as a Democrat in going out of his way to taunt those whose support he demanded.
