Lieberman: Democrat or Neo-Con?
CLICK TO READ: Hartford Courant | `We Do Have A Plan' by David Lightman
LIGHTMAN: "Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman, just back from Iraq, wants President Bush to give the American people details about the progress being made in that country - from military triumphs to the proliferation of cellphones and satellite dishes....
'This administration is in a state of denial, and is very much in a hunker-down mode,' [said] Ted Galen Carpenter, vice president for foreign policy and defense studies at Washington's Cato Institute.
He said of Bush and Lieberman, 'You can admire their consistency, but I don't think there's anything more tragic than someone who's loyal to a flawed cause.'
Bush, Lieberman and other war backers have become increasingly isolated politically.
A Nov. 11-13 Gallup poll found that 63 percent of those surveyed disapproved of Bush's handling of the war, and 60 percent thought it was not worth going to war."
THE UNKNOWN CANDIDATE: Lieberman thinks we are achieving success in Iraq due to a "proliferation of cellphones and satellite dishes"? Either Lieberman is an incredibly stupid senator or an incredibly loyal neo-con. Since he appears to be of normal intelligence, it must be the latter.
Lieberman has consistently supported the administration's misguided pre-emptive war policies and, therefore, has no more credibility than Mr. Bush. His speech, like the President's this morning, was no more than an attempt to help shore up Bush's sagging support for his illegal policies of war, torture, and human rights abuses with their continuing onslaught of lies and propaganda.
To paraphrase of a quote from above: THERE IS NOTHING MORE TRAGIC THAN SOMEONE WHO IS LOYAL TO A FLAWED CAUSE.
