Lieberman "DINO" TREACHERY is Contagious- now HILLARY and PELOSI are on the right-wing bandwagon....
In a week when former Alabama Governor DON SIEGELMAN _finally_ got OUT OF JAIL - out on appeal from a HYPER-PARTISAN REPUBLICAN PROSECUTION instigated and directed from the White House by President Bush's then Political Affairs Director KARL ROVE, with a very good chance the conviction will be overturned in light of closer scrutiny (Mr. Rove was able to ram-rod his prosecution of Gov. Seigelman in 2002, shortly after the 9-11 terror attacks, when the power and popularity of Mr. Bush were at their zenith)
In a week when Vice President Dick Cheney followed Iran's President in a visit to Iraq... and within days of the Vice President meeting Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki, Maliki unleashed his government army and police forces on other political parties in Basra, Baghdad, and Iraq, the body-count from the renewed fighting reaching well over 450 killed, many by US airstrikes called in by Maliki's forces....
In a week where President Bush's cabinet Secretary for Housing (HUD) ALPHONSO JACKSON was FIRED in disgrace, for CORRUPTION in STEERING HUD contracts to friends and cronies...
In a week when the entire US financial sector totters on the brink of financial meltdown, having avoided thus only by the massive infusion of ONE TRILLION DOLLARS of fed/Treasury socialized BAIL-OUTS for Bear Stearns and other private banks and brokers.... and the Bush administration's only response is to give the duo who have overseen this market crunch, Treasury Secretary Paulson and Securities and Exchange Commissioner MORE influence and authority to play a shell-game, ("rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic"
whereby taxpayer BAILOUTS of big banks continue, as homeowners face foreclosure and BANKRUPTCY, and STATES ARE REELING under budget crunches...
IN SPITE OF ALL THESE adminstration SCANDALS, FAILURES, economic disasters, and WAR hundred+ BODY-COUNTS in THIS week's news, HILLARY CLINTON has her surrogates praising FOX 'news' as FAIR and BALANCED"!
, and Speaker NANCY PELOSI, OBLIVIOUS to the Vice President's latest Iraq war bodycount (and another leadership DISASTER in Iraq) - Speaker Pelosi wants to talk about CHINA in TIBET!
Madam Speaker, I hate to agree with the China Communist government, especially regarding their brutal repression in Tibet... but you, WHO FUND DICK CHENEY's BOMBS and BULLETS in Iraq, have a hell of a lot of nerve lecturing the Chinese about Human Rights!
(P.S.- It could be FAR WORSE than Speaker Pelosi "merely" FUNDING Vice President Cheney and President Bush's war in Iraq... because according to widespread reports, the Bush-Cheney administration is building up US bomber forces to BOMB IRAN, at their earliest possible "convienent" moment!
WILL SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI go down in history as the 'DEMOCRATIC' SPEAKER who ENABLED A THIRD, massive US bombing and invasion of a foreign country?
SHE SHOULD STOP LISTENING to REPUBLICAN JOE LIEBERMAN, and the administration's other pro-war lobbyists.
JOE LIEBERMAN is back to his foul, anti-democratic tricks, which is exactly what one would expect for the treacherous Senator who ran as an anti-war moderate against NED LAMONT for the Senate in 2006, only to revert to his BLATANTLY, hyper-partisan PRO-WAR REPUBLICAN stripes once he had won the general election as an "independent", after losing that Senate Democratic primary to dark-horse challenger NED LAMONT just weeks before the general election.
NO, Mr. LIEBERMAN - YOU LOST YOUR re-election bid as a DEMOCRATIC SENATOR in the summer of 2006.... YOU WERE NOT A "DEMOCRAT" then, and you have a hell of a lot of war-monger nerve accusing the Democrats of being "HYPER-PARTISAN" now, when you are now THE Bush administration's MOST VOCAL pro-war SUPPORTER in the ENTIRE US Senate.... and that includes ALL REPUBLICAN Senators and Congressmen as well!
For there is Senator Joe Lieberman, TURNCOAT, TRAITOR, TREACHEROUS former Democrat, out on the campaign trail, TRYING TO IMPROVE the election prospects for.... REPUBLICAN presidential candidate John McCain! And it is NOT like John McCain is a "moderate" - his campaign is widely recognized as being "Bush-3" or "John McBush"!
And speaking of "hyperpartisan", we here at DemNationUSA have been accused, at times, of being "anti-semitic", because of our outrage that the Democratic Party has been HIJACKED by a foreign government (Israel), and over the past 8 years the inside-beltway 'Democratic' "leadership" has consistently offered only TEPID opposition to the hyper-partisan Bush adminisration's raw, grotesque abuses of power.
Well, we don't have to go far to prove this assertion... for the whole time that TRAITOR Joe Lieberman is accusing Democrats of being "hyperpartisan", the Governor of Alabama, DON SIEGELMAN, was ROTTING IN JAIL, put there by a HYPER-PARTISAN REPUBLICAN PROSECUTION, using FEDERAL GOVERNMENT US ATTORNEYS in Alabama HAND PICKED BY KARL ROVE to first rob Governor Siegelman of his re-election victory in November 2002, and then "bury him under the jail" so to speak... throw Mr. Siegelman in prison for a bogus corruption conviction, where until this past week, he had been held beyond the reach of the press, media, or his supporters!
What is the cruelest irony of all, is that Mr. Seigelman WAS RAISED JEWISH, but that TRAITOR JOE LIEBERMAN will PRETEND NOT TO NOTICE the Karl Rove/George Bush/Dick Cheney CORRUPTION of the US Justice Department, as they arranged and led a white-collar, POLITICAL LYNCHING of a Jewish heritage Democratic sitting governor of a Deep South state!
Which reminds us... IT WAS NOT PALESTINIAN terrorists who killed, assassinated Israel Prime Minister Yitzhak RABIN.. it was JEWISH TERRORIST EXTREMISTS!
In PRETENDING NOT TO NOTICE the POLITICAL LYNCHING, by the Bush-Rove-Cheney White House, of sitting Alabama Governor Don Siegelman, the treacherous Senator Joe Lieberman is making ECHOES of that actual ASSASSINATION of the Jewish Prime Minister!
And Joe Lieberman is not the only (former) 'Democratic' 'leader' to exhibit TREACHERY against the will of Democratic voters...
...for there was HILLARY CLINTON surrogate Pennsylvania Governor ED RENDELL... PRAISING FOX 'news' as FAIR AND BALANCED the other day...!
And SPEAKER OF CONGRESS NANCY PELOSI, herself, waxes indignant about the CHINA REPRESSION in TIBET... which is all very well and good... EXCEPT THAT SHE REFUSES TO NOTICE that she, her Congress, and the US Senate have given a FAR BIGGER "bomb, arrest, imprison, AND TORTURE locals" pass to President Bush and Vice President Cheney in their war in Iraq!
Indeed, in a week when the Vice President and President may be planning yet another war crime, this time the illegal bombing of IRAN,
...Speaker Pelosi, given the power over the entire US Congress, and thus the bully pulpit of commanding the US government purse-strings, is in the news for nothing more than urging President Bush to skip the opening ceremony at the Beijing Olympics!
Independent Lieberman calls Democratic Party 'hyperpartisan'
Lieberman says the party has changed.
March 31, 2008
Senator Joe Lieberman blasted the Democratic Party yesterday as protectionist, isolationist, and hyperpartisan.
Speaking on ABC's "This Week," Lieberman, Independent of Connecticut, said it is not the same party that made him its vice presidential candidate in 2000.
"It's not the Bill Clinton-Al Gore party, which was strong internationalists, strong on defense, pro-trade, pro-reform in our domestic government," he said. "It's been effectively taken over by a small group on the left of the party that is protectionist, isolationist, and very, very hyperpartisan. So it pains me."
Lieberman, who won reelection to the Senate as an independent after losing the 2006 Connecticut Democratic primary, still caucuses with Democrats. But he has endorsed Republican John McCain's presidential bid, and said yesterday that McCain reflects the legacy of John F. Kennedy.
McCain, he said, is "a reformer, somebody who understands ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country and remembers the other part of the Kennedy inaugural, which said that we will bear any burden, pay any price to assure the survival and sustenance of liberty. That's John McCain."
Lieberman also blasted Senator Barack Obama for voting against a resolution to label the Iranian Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist group and gave Clinton credit for supporting it.
