The hypocrisy on the left is baffling. All summer and fall we were hearing about how there's no room in the GOP for moderates- Snowe, Collins, Crist, you name it. Yet now, people like Lieberman, Nelson and others are being vilified. I guess there's no room in the Democratic Party for moderates.

Regarding KO's "comment" I halfway expected him to, being a staple of his rants, tell Obama to RESIGN! I somehow stomached his show last night to see how he would react to his two favorite people, Dean and Obama, battling it out.

What?! How is this hypocrisy? I thought it was Rush saying there was no room in the GOP for moderates?

You make no sense.

Rush yes, but countless liberal talking heads and politicians and likely people in this forum attacked the GOP for not including moderates. Apparently such an outrage doesn't exist when it comes to their own. Be as left as you can be. And if you're in the middle, then we'll make threats against your wife and call you every name in the book, and in KO's case, suggest suicide.

Lieberman isn't a moderate. or maybe he was 3 MONTHS AGO when he advocated for precisely what he is now against.

Lieberman is out for Lieberman and is looking at a new job in the CT insurance industry.

also, do you have an actual argument to advance, or are you just going to complain about how The Left is mean?

I think your understanding of things in this world is what's truly baffling.

This is a general Obama discussion, is it not? I was simply responding to the ultra-insightful and well laid-out argument "Lieberman is a fantastic douche."

Then mind telling me where I'm wrong? Or are you going to do what you always do- say someone is stupid or wrong or missing the point, and then not bother stating how? I guess it is easier that way.

But they are a bunch of meanies

I mean they scare you into thinking there will be another terrorist attack if you don't do this, they use fearmongering and racism to rally the people, and they try and legislate against anyone who is not like them...

oh wait, I got confused for a second.

Carry on.

Which has what to do with Obama? Why the rant about the left and moderates? It didn't make a lick of sense.

Oh, you are so insightful. As it's been pointed out before Lieberman is looking out for Lieberman, this has nothing to do with being moderate or not. No one has "threatened" his wife, no matter how Beck wants to spin it. There are just many that find her unfit for her role now, you have heard of the term "conflict of interest" right?

And before you say it, Olbermann does not speak for the left. In fact I can't think of anyone in here that has ever stated they really like Olbermann let alone worship him, but I can think of some that worship Rush or think the other racist Beck is a "great American". So as hard as you try and bring him into every conversation, it doesn't really matter, that is one of the big differences between the left and right, we don't worship the blowhard talking heads.

Lieberman is not a member of the Democratic Party, haven't you heard?

Come on, BVS. You're kidding yourself if you think the left doesn't do this. Just last week Newsweek ran a fantasy piece imagining if Gore had been elected in 2000. It said that if Gore had won, 9/11 never would have happened, which to me is Newsweek's not-so-subtle way of saying "If you voted for Bush, you allowed 9/11 to happen. If only you had been wiser and voted for Gore, that day never would have occurred."

Gotta love that.

Who in here worships Rush? And why just confine it to this forum? There are people all over who take everything Rush says as God and everything KO says as God. Go visit the Kos, if you're not already there.

Of course, but he's one of the needed 60 votes.

You're too busy worshipping The State and only see Truth in those that glorify its magnificence.

i am shocked and disappointed for your failing to heap praise Olbermann on his condemnation of Obama last night.

You and Oscar come close... You actually did when you first started posting, but you've seen a little light since then. I've never in my life actually met one person who treats Olbermann that way, but I've met hundreds that treat Rush that way.

How can one person be wrong so often? I mean the odds are you would be right at least a few times... you should go to Vegas because you are beating the odds.
