Feingold: Lieberman ‘Doesn’t Get It’
Posted on Aug 13, 2006
The hard-charging senator from Wisconsin swatted down Sen. Joe Lieberman’s claim that pulling out of Iraq would only embolden future would-be plane-bombing terrorists: ?Joe is showing with that regrettable statement that he doesn?t get it. He doesn?t get it.”
Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) echoed Vice President Cheney last week by arguing that a timeline for Iraq redeployment (backed by 57 percent of Americans) ?will be taken as a tremendous victory by the same people who wanted to blow up these planes in this plot hatched in England. It will strengthen them and they will strike again.?
This morning on ABC?s This Week, Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI) responded to Lieberman?s remarks. ?Joe is showing with that regrettable statement that he doesn?t get it. He doesn?t get it,? Feingold said. Watch it:
