Please don't waste time on Lieberman in CT
Lieberman is still a Democrat. The Republicans are having managed to trick so many Democrats to waste their time and energy fighting themselves. I would like to see Lamont win, but it wouldn't be all that bad if Lieberman wins either. The Senator coming from CT will be a Democrat and THAT is what is most important right now. We should be devoting our time, energy and resources on other critical races. That will be how we recapture Congress, wich is our ULTIMATE GOAL!

1. Lieberman is NO Democrat. Either Lamont wins, or we've lost the
seat. Period.

10. He votes with the Dems most of the time
and he counts as a Dem for control purposes.

26. As long as there is still a D next to his name when he's done
he will still count toward a majority. If he officially changes his designation, then I will agree. But not yet. A marginal Dem is still a Dem.

47. If Joe-hole WERE STILL A DEMOCRAT, he would abide by the
wishes of the voters of Connecticut, and throw his support behind Lamont. He did not. He broke with the Party.
He IS NO LONGER A DEMOCRAT...he has an (I) next to his traitorous name.
Personally, I think the (I) stands for idiot...

2. If Lieberman wins,
doesn't that actually mean that there is one less Dem in Congress? Lieberman would officially be counted as an "I" and the Democrats would, by default, have one less seat in terms of majority?

There is no such animal as an Independent Democrat.

4. Lieberman is...
"devoting his time, energy and resources on other critical races" in a negative way. By pulling more Republicans into the voting booth, he is endangering the races farther down on the ticket.
Is this the new talking point now; that we shouldn't "waste time (or money)" opposing Lieberman? I've heard it from all directions the last few days.

81. Wayward Democrat?
During the 2004 campaign, he went down to Florida and spoke to Jewish groups, praising Bush's support of Israel and casting doubts about Kerry. What kind of Democrat trashes the top of the ticket?

Most people are just rantin on threads here, much like myself. Most of us work and do political work, then post on DU just of shits and giggles.

I'm not workin politically in CT, but I will rant against those elected Dems that oppose Lamont; they best not moan when they end up facing a progressive third party challenge.

Peace, God.

With the Dems controlling congress, the DEMS set the agenda, the DEMS finally get to investigate all of bush's crimes and the DEMS can finally stop bush.

20. Good God!
Have you not kept up with Lieberman? He trashes Democrats, has his head up the ass of Bushco as far as it can go, votes "only 10 % of the time" with Republicans but on the most damaging things. He loses the Democratic primary and bolts the party. He isn't a Democrat anymore, in case you didn't notice. The Democrat in CT is Ned Lamont. Lieberman has also hired Republican a republican pollster, Republican campaign staff, has endorsements from such charming people as Hannity, Malkin, Limbaugh. Where have you been? If you are tired of hearing about Lieberman and want to concentrate on other seats, fine. But I happen to be from CT and I get it pretty well, thank you. Please don't tell me I need to forget about what Lieberman is doing to the party. :grr:

68. If Joe Lieberman is a Democrat then why is he
running against the Democrat chosen in the primary? Why didn't he respect the primary results. Why is he running as his own party's candidate? It's nice that for you all a person has to say is "I am a Democrat" and that's good enough for you. Some of us need more evidence than just words.

So even though he votes with the Republicans on some major issues, and is enthusiastically accepting Republican support for his reelection AND he abandoned the DEMOCRATIC party because he refused to accept the primary results, the fact that he calls himself a Democrat should be enough for me, right? I should ask no more questions. :eyes:

22. If you prefer Democrats then support the Democratic
candidate in CT....NED LAMONT. Lieberman is not running as a Democrat!

27. I am not going to waste my time with CT
It's a Dem lock. I will be concentrating on Menendez in NJ and Webb in VA as well as other key races. THAT is where we NEED victories.

18. Even if it costs us control of Congress?????
That could be what it comes down to. Neglect key races to extract some revenge on Joe??? Not good for the Country or the world.

19. How does having Joe as a Senator help us achieve majority status?
I would suggest that anyone who thinks Joe will caucus with Dems again is being played a fool.

Attacking a Democrat instead of a Republican is the one being played the fool.

72. "Attacking a Democrat instead of a Republican"
Are you referring to when Joe led the charge against B C in the Senate floor?


Are you refereeing to when Joe slid a shiv in Al Gore's back?


Joe quit the party, He is no longer a Democrat.

WOW Imagine that! A DUer questioning my party loyalty.
Joe quit the party. Get over it.

If races other than Ct. are important to you, quit pimping for the guy running against the only Democrat running in Ct.

85. Nice edit. BTW who is this "rest the party" 79% of National Democrats
were happy with the outcome in Ct.

Why are you turing your back against the overwhelming majority of the party?

13. I would rather see the Republican candidate win over Lieberman
At least we wouldn't have a "Democrat" giving cover to the Bush administration. And besides, many Repukes will begin to actively run away from Bush. Maybe this unknown Republican would start his career by running away from him also.

52. Oh yeah I am banging my head against the wall
Trying to refocuse this heard of cats on what is IMPORTANT. What seems more important than winning back Congress and stopping the destruction of our Nation is sooth the hurt egos. Joe screwed up big time on Iraq... Well most of the time he doesn't screw up, and he is still a LIBERAL DEMOCRAT.

70. your point is well spoken.

there is no way CT will go red, so the best the rethugs can
hope for is a divisive and contentious election between two
democrats.

76. Exactly and so far they are getting their wish
We need to concentrate our efforts else where. Webb is now competative in VA, that would be a good place to start.

82. not to pick at a scab

but if anyone is a closet rethug, it is probably webb.

having said that, if I lived in VA I would hold my nose and
vote for him.

We have to make sure Dems make gains in all the races.

83. It would be nice if he dropped out
but that isn't as critical as OUR reaction to him running. Don't you understand? Don't you think recapturing Congress is what's important? Have you forgotten the REPUBLICANS are the REAL enemy?

86. words of wisdom

we do this a lot. in fighting over relatively small differences, we
forget that the rethugs are the enemy.

thank you for this reminder.

103. Can you believe this horse hockey is allowed here?
Imagine if you will, If the situation were reversed and a member of "the left" "far left" "leftist boogieman" or a "Green Devil" had decided to run against the only Democrat running in Ct.

105. Locking.
Lieberman is not the democratic candidate in the race, therefore support of his candidacy is supporting third party candidates.
