Actually, I could be persuaded to support term limits. So your answer would be "no" to whatever special treatment you may be referring to.

I think thats just because you fear he is going to beat Lemont in the general election. Surely, your not opposed to any American who chooses to run for office regardless of the circumstances?

If he wanted to run as an independent he should have pulled out of the primary.




Do you think their are others that have lost primaries?

that could have had a good run as an independent?

Sure, there is nothing wrong with doing that. Its not against the law.

Why the Republicans Are Loving the Lieberman Loss

Karl Rove, White House senior adviser and deputy chief of staff, telephoned Lieberman but an aide said the call was personal in nature and did not include any offer of assistance with his independent bid against Tuesday night's victor, Ned Lamont of Greenwich.

Do you think Rove called McKinney? or even Schwartz?

or is it just slimeball to slimeball phone calling?

The Republican Schlessinger is a total non-entity and has no chance of winning at all, even if Lieberman and Lamont split the vote. He's not in the game.
Now that I have done my own homework, I agree with this statement.

He is a freaking moron. The Republican Party never thought the Dem. Party would be in such dissary, so they were not putting up a real candidate. They have allegedly asked this numbnuts to step out of the race and he won't.


HEHE!!!!! Ain't politics grand.

Voting Lieberman out was helping the terrorists!

http://thinkprogress.org/2006/08/10/cheney-ct/

As the Mideast sits on the brink of regional war, Vice President Dick Cheney spent his time yesterday holding a teleconference to discuss the outcome of the Democratic Senate primary in Connecticut.

Cheney said that to “purge a man like Joe Lieberman” was “of concern, especially over the issue of Joe’s support with respect to national efforts in the global war on terror.” He explained:

"The thing that’s partly disturbing about it is the fact that, the standpoint of our adversaries, if you will, in this conflict, and the al Qaeda types, they clearly are betting on the proposition that ultimately they can break the will of the American people in terms of our ability to stay in the fight and complete the task."

Cheney’s argument assumes that the war in Iraq is helping the United States defeat terrorists. He’s wrong. His own State Department found last April that Iraq had become a safe haven for terrorists and attracted a “foreign fighter pipeline” linked to terrorist plots, cells and attacks throughout the world. An overwhelming bipartisan majority (84%) of national security experts believe we are losing the war on terror, and 87 percent think Iraq has had a negative impact.

Cheney should spend less time analyzing the Democratic primary in Connecticut and more time acknowledging the administration’s critical policy failures and trying to fix them.

Why is it okay for Republicans to constantly imply, openly or vaguely that liberals or voting for liberals is somehow synonymous with further terror?

Cheney is a pig.

And why isn't he talking about the Republican incumbent Schwarz who was also booted on Tuesday in favour of a complete wingnut? So leftist "extremists" are at fault in Connecticut but rightwing lunatics pushing one of their own is completely reasonable?

[q]Hang on, Dems. Here come the Pol Pots of your party. And if you were for national security, you are now emphatically not. Or else.

Remember the mountain of skulls in Cambodia? It's the Democrats new reality now that the anti-war rabble has tasted blood by taking Lieberman down.

That's My Word.

Don't forget my radio show. Check it out here!

how this passes for analysis is beyond me.

Cheney and Co. have totally screwed up Iraq but they won't admit it. That place has turned into a haven for Wahhabist nutcases. They claim that they're fighting people like this but they've botched it.

I fear for what the Democratic Party has become since the overthrow of Saddam Hussein. I predicted that he would lose the primary, because the left wing of the democratic party is more likely to dominate the polls.

But golly, if you follow the party line 95% of the time, and you think independently the other 5% of the time, you're considered Bush's bed pet. Let's compare that to America's relationship with Israel. Israel disagrees with the US about 10% of the time, but that has no grounds for flawing their relations.

I think Leiberman has a good shot as an independent. Many people in Connecticut will find him to be a safer alternative than his less experienced and less precautious opponent. I'm sure most see Leiberman as the decent man that he is. He's done much more good than harm for America overall.

yeah right

you are a hard core conservative

and Irvine is fearing for the Republican party

the truth is
both of you are hoping the party, you don't support, is not successful


Quote:

1. Karl Rove, President Bush's chief political strategist, called the Lieberman campaign Tuesday night. The White House said the call was purely "personal."

2. Ken Mehlman, chairman of the Republican National Committee, publicly declined to endorse his own party's Senate candidate when pressed on MSNBC on Wednesday.

3. Vice President Dick Cheney, usually media-averse, participated in a conference call with reporters to talk about the Connecticut race — and express regret about Lieberman's defeat.

4. Cheney said he had "a good deal of respect" for Lieberman, his counterpart on the Democratic presidential ticket six years ago whose political career has been imperiled by his strong support for the Bush administration's decision to invade Iraq.

5. Cheney said he considered it "a perhaps unfortunate and significant development" for Democrats that they would "in effect, purge a man like Joe Lieberman."

Whether such remarks would help or hurt the senator as he fights for his political life was unclear. But Lieberman left little doubt that he was committed to the battle.
5 more reasons why Lieberman sucks

why is it that only Republicans are lamenting his defeat?

At long last, Mr. Lieberman, have you no shame?

Lieberman Seizes on Terror Arrests to Attack Rival

By PATRICK HEALY and JENNIFER MEDINA

Senator Joseph I. Lieberman seized on the terror arrests in Britain today to attack his Democratic rival, Ned Lamont, saying that Mr. Lamont’s goals for ending the war in Iraq would constitute a “victory” for extremists, including those accused of plotting to blow up airliners traveling between Britain and the United States.

“If we just pick up like Ned Lamont wants us to do, get out by a date certain, it will be taken as a tremendous victory by the same people who wanted to blow up these planes in this plot hatched in England,” Mr. Lieberman said at a campaign event at lunchtime in Waterbury, Conn. “It will strengthen them and they will strike again.”

Mr. Lamont, who rode an antiwar message to beat Mr. Lieberman in the Connecticut Democratic primary on Tuesday, has called for a firm deadline to remove front-line American troops from Iraq, and he endorsed a Democratic-sponsored amendment in the Senate to set that deadline for next July. Mr. Lieberman opposed setting a deadline.

In a telephone interview from his vacation home in Maine, Mr. Lamont said he was disappointed with the personal tone Mr. Lieberman’s remarks, and questioned the connection between the Iraq war and the new terrorist plot. He also continued his strategy of trying to link Mr. Lieberman’s views with those of the Bush administration, whose approach the senator has tended to support in the fight against terrorism.

“Wow,” Mr. Lamont said, after asking a reporter to read Mr. Lieberman’s remark about him. “That comment sounds an awful lot like Vice President Cheney’s comment on Wednesday. Both of them believe our invasion of Iraq has a lot to do with 9/11. That’s a false premise.”

Dick Cheney, in an interview with reporters on Wednesday, lamented Mr. Lieberman’s loss in the primary and said that Al Qaeda and other terrorists were counting on Americans to adopt a weaker military posture, and that the victory of Mr. Lamont over Mr. Lieberman indicated that “the dominant view of the Democratic Party” favored that weaker approach.

Mr. Lieberman also revealed today that, several hours after Mr. Cheney made those remarks about the Connecticut race, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff called the senator to tell him about the foiled terror plot.
