Joe Lieberman: proud Republican
Good God! When will people wake up and realize that Joe Lieberman is nothing more than a neo-conservative Republican masking as a Democrat.
Lieberman attended a luncheon hosted by ultra-conservative radio personality Brad Davis and lets just say he really showed his Republican colors.
Here's the rundown by the Journal-Inquirer.
On Monday of this week Sen. Joe Lieberman appeared at a well-attended luncheon at La Renaissance restaurant in East Windsor, hosted by the radio host Brad Davis.
It was a remarkable performance for two reasons. First, it showed, again, that Lieberman is possessed of great political skills. During the primary campaign, the senator seemed to have lost those skills. But now he has been freed to be who he really is. He's comfortable and effective again. Second, the person Lieberman really is, is a Bush Republican.
At the Monday luncheon he:
- Said House Speaker Dennis Hastert should not resign.
- Introduced two Republican candidates for state office - for comptroller and state treasurer. He didn't introduce any Democrats, who have previously been told not to campaign at these luncheons.
- Thanked his Republican "friends" for their support, and he said he would never forget them.
Last week Lieberman told a Washington, D.C., newspaper that:
- He would also never forget the Democrats, like Chris Dodd, who moved to support Ned Lamont after he won the Democratic Senate nomination.
- If re-elected, Lieberman expects to retain his seniority. Otherwise, he said, he would have to consider not caucusing with the Democrats.
Democrats who think Lieberman is still one of them need to wake up and smell the coffee.
