ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 3 — Democrats officially warned Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) on Wednesday that he could face repercussions for delivering a speech at the Republican National Convention in which he called Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama an “eloquent young man” who lacked the experience to be in the White House.
Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) said that Lieberman’s status within the Democratic caucus is in jeopardy.
“Senator Reid was very disappointed in Senator Lieberman’s speech, especially when he appeared to go out of his way to distort Senator Obama’s record of bipartisan achievements in the Senate,” said Reid’s spokesman, Jim Manley. “The Democratic caucus will likely revisit the situation with Senator Lieberman after the elections in November.”
Read the rest at the link. It seems to me that the democrats are forgetting who they’re talking about here. Joe Lieberman is no stranger to these threat tactics. Remember the reason he’s now independent is because the dems ran someone against him for exactly the crime of not going along to get along. The crime of speaking his mind and taking off the partisan hat once in a while. They took his democratic primary but he came back as an Independent and won. So I think he’s demonstrated he doesn’t put up with bullies.
I guess too that they forgot without Joe caucusing with the dems they lose their majority. They need him More than he needs them I’d say.
So typical of the Obamacrats and their Borg tactics. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile. Please! So their answer to the fight the Right Wing is to use the very strategies of strong arm control they decry is used by their enemies? Do I really have to go into all the ways and all the reasons this is a flawed strategy at best?
Way to go guys! Keep it up with your angry demands I’m sure it’s going to work for you. (Rolling eyes and smirking sarcastically)
