That is the problem that Lieberman had. He needed to better coordinate with Bush the announcement of the plot to bomb the planes.

I guess George W. did not think that helping Lieberman was enough to move the announcement forward...

It will be interesting to see polls taken this week. I'm guessing Bush, Republicans and Lieberman all show upsurges in popularity directly linked to raised concerns about terrorism.

Some of you may not like it, but many Americans take the War on Terror seriously, and they will vote this November accordingly.

Yup, so early August is perfect timing for a terrorist announcement to profit on it dearly come November.

No, but early August IS "perfect timing" to spoil a terror attack that's scheduled for mid August.

The first post-primary Rasmussen poll shows Lieberman leading Lamont, 46-41.

I never thought I'd see Joe Lieberman acting like this. I used to respect the guy, to the point where I was pissed off at Al Gore for endorsing Dean rather than Lieberman a couple of years back. Now I'm not so sure what I think of the guy...........he's playing politics as usual.

The people of CT have spoken. They have done their job. They decided that the person representing them was not representing their opinions.

He lost.

If he wanted to be independant, he should have declared that and not made the primary run.
The People of CT have spoken? I don't think thats accurate. The Democrats of CT have spoken and have defeated Lieberman by a small margin in their little primary. As for the people of CT, let them decide in the general election who is the best candidate regardless of what party their in.

Would you advocate Congressman Schwarts of Mich run as an independent
because he lost to a evangelist?


If a person wants to run as an independent they should start out that way.

On Tuesday Lieberman was asking the people of Connecticut to elect him as the Democratic nominee.

He will run and lose and go down in history as one arrogant, selfish sack of shit.

Quote:
(CNN) -- Is top Republican strategist and White House political adviser Karl Rove helping Sen. Joseph Lieberman's re-election bid, on the heels of the latter's Democratic primary loss this week?



"He's a personal friend, and I called him Tuesday afternoon -- 5:00, thereabouts -- and wished him well on his election that night," the GOP political guru said. "It was a personal call."

Schwarts is free to make his own decision.

Other than repetitive name calling for Lieberman and the apparent desire for Democrats to retain the seat, you haven't articulated why Lieberman shouldn't run as an independent.

Sorry, the people who decided to vote in the democratic primary of CT have spoken. Same result. He agreed to the rules. He lost. He should bow out.
