First, the fact that he couldn’t take losing to Ned Lamont in the Democratic Primary for his Senate seat in his last election (2006), so HE started HIS OWN PARTY, Connecticut for Lieberman then he campaigned for John McCain, and now his criticism has helped derail the public option, because at the end of the day it is all about Joe Lieberman.
In the 2008 Presidential campaign, Lieberman actually has the cojones to go out and campaign for John McCain! And Lieberman, who, I’m sure, had plenty of work to do in the Senate, took tons of time to travel the world with McCain at every campaign stop. See Joe smile? See Joe wedge into every picture with McCain with that funny clown-like smile on his face? Yup. Lieberman is also an attention whore.
Look at any Democratic OR Republican “win” for legislation. You’ll see the photo op with a major player at the podium making remarks and…wait…who’s that in the background smiling? Yup! It’s Joe Lieberman.
After pissing off the Democratic Party by campaigning for “Crash” McCain, Harry Reid and other members of the Senate considered stripping Lieberman of one of his chairmanships, and of all people, LIEBERMAN says, “That’s unacceptable.” Unacceptable? Joe. Please. It’s not your freaking choice. And by the way…Your conduct is unacceptable.
Any piece of legislation in the Senate where the voting is close and the Democrats need one more vote to assure a victory, whose wrinkled ass do they kiss? Lieberman’s, like the ad below says, it’s not about Connecticut…It’s all about Joe.
Lately, with the health care reform battle on the line, who comes out against passage of a public option? The public option is the only portion of that legislation in the health care reform bill that actually does anything for those who can’t afford health insurance? Yup. It’s Joe Lieberman. Why? He’s got so many pharmaceutical and medical lobbyists in his pockets that he can barely get his pants on in the morning.
Have a look at the video below, where the actual chairman of the Connecticut for Lieberman Party, Dr. John Mertens, says he’s had enough of Lieberman’s crap. And again, Mertens was the chairman of the Connecticut for Lieberman Party.
