Lamont: Lieberman is all talk
Wow. Ned Lamont came out and blasted Joe Lieberman over the love-fest of a meeting he had today with Iraq President Jalal Talabani. You know, the meeting where Lieberman claims we made great progress in Iraq, couldn't bring himself to ask President Talabani any tough questions, and stated that we went to Iraq because they had terrorist there.
"Senator Lieberman has made it clear where he stands. He talks tough on the war, but when the press conference ends he's incapable of taking the tough actions needed to end the war," said Ned Lamont. "Unfortunately, tough speeches won't save our troops or stop the terrorists. Yesterday, he had an opportunity to stand up and do what's right for the people of Connecticut and tell the Iraqi government that it's time to take responsibility for their own future. As too many times before, Senator Lieberman fell down on the job We can't afford to waste any more time while Senator Lieberman works up the courage to do what's right and hold President Bush accountable for his failed policies in Iraq."Amen.
