Honesty and Integrity Not Needed

"In matters of war we undermine presidential credibility at our nation's peril." Joe Lieberman

Once again the Democratic Party has proven that having high standards of integrity and honesty are detrimental to one's political future in the Democratic Party. While Senators such as John Kerry flip-flop one day to the next depending on political polls, those who stayed true to their beliefs may find themselves out of a job.

Lieberman Persona Non Grata with Democrat Leadership

By Sher Zieve – Senator Joe Lieberman’s problems are said to go beyond his support for the Iraq war. The Connecticut Democrat has been portrayed by his Democrat opponent and the Democrat leadership as unquestioningly following President Bush’s stance in regards to Iraq.

But, an even greater reason for Lieberman’s new found disdain from his own party is said to be his attempts at bi-partisanship towards the formation of a cooperative relationship with Republicans. His stance for strong foreign policy and his values-based politics are being suggested by the Washington Post as his ultimate downfall within the Democrat Party. It is reported that Lieberman is not partisan enough and hasn't more viciously attacked members of the Republican Party.

Reflecting the liberal point of view, William A. Galston of the Brookings Institution said: “…this president and this administration manifestly have played politics with foreign policy, and their chief political adviser has been totally frank about that. I think it would have been permissible and even advisable for Joe Lieberman to conclude at some point that a bipartisan foreign policy has got to be a two-way street. He really didn't."

Lieberman was condemned by Democrats when, after visiting Iraq in November 2005, he wrote an Op/Ed piece for the Wall Street Journal that spoke to the positive things occurring in Iraq. Lieberman commented: "I wasn't thinking as a Democrat. I was thinking as an American senator who went to Iraq and saw some progress and wanted to report it to the American people because I feel so deeply that the way this ends will have serious consequences for the future of this country."

The majority of Democrat leaders are said to be supporting Lieberman’s opponent, anti-war candidate Ned Lamont, in the Connecticut senatorial race.

There was some good news for the Democratic Party yesterday...Cynthia McKinney was handily defeated in her primary runoff.

Scary how close we are on this? I cannot agree more, this could be the demise of the DNC 06 offensive

The DNC is imploding. It's not your grandfather's party anymore that's for sure.

Do you think Ms. Mckinney will get a new hairstyle and run again thinking the constituents wouldn't recognize her?

I had a little rant about the Democratic Party over at Beak's. The gist of what I said is what EB mentioned: The DNC is imploding.

But the Dems will garner votes this fall. Just watch.

Recently, I've even personally heard idiots say, "Bush knew that the WTC would be hit on 9/11, and he let it happen." ARRGGGHHH!

Crusader,
Did you see FNC's coverage of McKinney's entourage's anti-Semitic tantrum preceding her concession speech? There was quite a bit of footage of the tantrum. Mention was also made of her new bodyguards--The New Black Panthers, who apparently are particularly vile anti-Semites.

eb..it might be hard to hide the Black Panther members who have been escorting her. Either way, her actions will soon give her away no matter how much of a disguise she is wearing.

aow..some recent polls have shown that one third of all Americans actually believe the government was behind the plot to take down the World Trade Center.
Is it really possible for 33% of Americans to be that gullible?
If so, then your take on this year's elections will undoubtedly be correct.
