Schmuck . . .

The Mad Prophet from the Northeast is at it again. Last week, Connecticut Senator, Democrat Joseph Lieberman, stated, “"It's time for Democrats who distrust President Bush to acknowledge that he will be the commander in chief for three more critical years, and that in matters of war, we undermine presidential credibility at our nation's peril."

Like Representative Murtha asked, “What credibility?”

The fact that Senator Lieberman thinks that President Bush has credibility on any matter, strongly suggests that Mr. Lieberman is indeed from another planet. That fact that he would choose to chastise the Democratic Party for not supporting the President, means that Joseph Lieberman has become a Democrat in Name Only (we have a bunch of DINO’s around Long Beach, but more on that later).

In my opinion, there is no room for Mr. Lieberman in the Democratic Party. I’ve never been a Lieberman guy. I was disgusted when Al Gore chose Mr. Lieberman to be his running mate in the 2000 Presidential election. I also believe it was one of the many reasons Al Gore lost. Nobody was interested in a cup of “Joe-Mentum”

Maybe one reason he’s advocating for the Republicans is because he’s been doing it for a long time. Mr. Lieberman was one of the strongest proponents for war in Iraq, and a strong proponent to support President Bush.

In 2002, Mr. Lieberman had this to say: “I believe deeply that he (President Bush) is right about Iraq, and that our national security will be strengthened if members of both parties come together now to support the commander-in-chief and our military.”

There are several flaws in this statement.

  1. President Bush was wrong about Iraq. We know there were never any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. The supposed weapons of mass destruction claims came from liars, either for political reasons, or to stop being tortured in secret prisons.
  2. The Iraq War has not made this nation safer. Our military is spread thin, and is not meeting its recruitment goals. Hurricane Katrina proved that the United States is not prepared to respond to natural disasters, let alone another terrorist attack. Don’t take my word for it, according to the 9/11 Commission the United States is no safer today from a terrorist attack than we were on September 11, 2001. The Bush Administration received failing grades in several areas. This should be unacceptable to Americans.
  3. Why should both parties come together to support a liar. There are many examples that show the Bush Administration used evidence know to be false, in their fierce and rabid advocacy towards war.
  4. You can support the troops, but not the commander-in-chief . . . even Tom Delay said so.

I’ve long held disdain for Joseph Lieberman, but his latest comments and the rumors circulating around him becoming the Secretary of Defense are beyond the pale. Senator Lieberman’s comments go a long way towards undermining the Democratic Party, and the minority voice in this county. To have one of our supposed “own” doing this to us is just plain disgusting. To their credit, Democratic Party leaders have had this to say:

Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.): "I've talked to Senator Lieberman, and unfortunately he is at a different place on Iraq than the majority of the American people."

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.): "I completely disagree . . . I believe that we have a responsibility to speak out if we think that the course of action that our country is on is not making the American people safer, making our military stronger and making the region more stable."

I’ll go a little bit further.

The Democratic Party should shove a cup of Joe-Mentum up Lieberman’s ass, and send over him over to the Republican Party where he’ll fit right in. Intolerance you say? Not so! I have complete tolerance for Senator Lieberman’s view points . . . I just think they belong in the Republican Party instead of the Democratic Party. Iraq is too big of an issue, with too much at stake for Joe Lieberman to go around shitting on brave Democrats who speak out against the Bush Administration, and patriotically demand accountability.

Of course, if he became a Republican we’d lose another Senate seat. But we have to ask ourselves if haven’t already lost it?

Goodbye Joe . . . thanks for nothing.
