Repost for comment: "What bugs me about Lieberman"
is the same thing that bugs me about the rest of the apologist/enabler dems, and it just struck me today watching Lanny Davis on MTP. Maybe Joe HAS voted with the dems 90% of the time. But too many times the dems have voted for questionable programs that the rank and file doesn't like. Too many times the dems have voted for the president because we're at war, after all.

As a former CT dem (I now live in PA and don't have to worry so much), I still write Joe about issues important to my family. Lord knows I won't get any representation from my senators. And I've found myself writing to him a whole damn lot because, whether or not he votes with other dems, the votes are still going for the topiary.

So, CT dems, is it just me, or is the opposition against Joe rooted in this fact? Are CT dems merely the first to wake up to the fact that he may be voting with the dems, but the dems are all too often voting for the president? And maybe they would all be facing genuine opposition if more state democrat organizations could field true opposition candidates?

4. Word. 90% probably includes 50% in which Dems have rolled over for Bush

6. The "Kiss" with Bush**. The look on Lieberman's face drove me nuts.
Edited on Sun Aug-06-06 02:15 PM by AlinPA
He looked absolutely enthralled that Bush** hugged him and kissed him! What does that say? He is locked in with the bastards.

7. but it matters which was the 10% that he agreed with them
They have so so many votes. Joementum seems to side with GB on the more controversial subjects, and always is the one making the democratic party seem like they are not united and don't have a message.
