‘It’s All About Joe’

Those feisty progressives are at it again, running an ad against Joe Lieberman that features the actual chairman of the Connecticut for Lieberman party—but what exactly is the Connecticut for Lieberman party?

Lieberman set up the organization for his last Senate run, after Democrats bounced him, but he has nothing to do with it these days—other than the fact that it’s named after him.

John Mertens, the star of the ad below, is clearly no Lieberman fan. He’s no fan of Chris Dodd, Connecticut’s other senator, either. Mertens is challenging Dodd as an independent in the next election.

The Hartford Courant has more on the story.  —PZS

The first three letters in Joseph LIEberman’s last name, spell out who Senator Joe LIEberman (I-CT) actually is and how he votes and proves he is not to be trusted. LIEberman is all about and all and only for LIEberman.

One of the many reasons I voted for Obama was that I knew that Lieberman would have been at McCain’s ear day and night, whispering all the talking points from the Zionist lobby why we should attack Iran. We would have been at war within six months. He then tried to set up a situation where the US Navy would have set up an embargo/blockade to prevent Iran from importing gasoline. That one failed when members of Congress were warned that by international law, it was an act of war. Not to be discouraged, he and Senator Kyle put forth the “Iran Diplomatic Enhancement Act”, which was the same blockade but with a fancy name. That failed also. The next one made it through because the bill was written to create sanctions against any company or country that provides gas to Iran. Lieberman is a very dangerous man! Willing to spill American blood on behalf of the Zionists and crazys of Israel.

LIEberman is not even faithful to the Jewish Religion, why would anyone expect him to be loyal to a party or a state.
I’m betting Joe has his Golden Rapture bus ticket in his breast pocket at all times- wouldn’t want to be the 144,001st converted Jew to show up.

Thank you for pointing out Lieberman’s identity as a Jew and how relevant it is.

I think that ad might have mentioned why the about face from the guy who helped get Joe his fourth term in office…..Too bad he was such a slow learner.

Lieberman is not just a despictable politician, he’s a dispictable human being.
Pick something and Actually Be It! Otherwise you are nothing but a self servicing opportunist with absolutely no moral or ethical foundation or convictions- Blatantly Untrustworthy, and unreliable. Two disqualifiers to Public Service.If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything - The Moral of the Story of LIEbermans life.

If Obama hadn’t bailed out Lieberman during the primary, Lamont would be Connecticut’s junior senator - just another gift that keeps giving from the President who’s smarter and knows more than any of his fawning masses.
