||Is there political fallout from the Lieberman loss? Absolutely yes!
Lieberman was an old generation democrat, and I respected him. We did not agree on everything, but the man had conviction and I believed that when he was in the Senate Chambers, he was truly voting for what he felt was right, not his party line. Why did he lose? Because his opponent bashed Bush and is against the war on terror. Lieberman says he will run as an independent. I hope he does, and wins!
“But Lieberman, undaunted, vowed to run as an independent against fellow Democrat Ned Lamont. "For the sake of our state, our country and my party, I cannot and will not let that result stand," he said of Tuesday's Democratic primary results.”
Democrats better wake up to see what is happing to their party. It is not the party of the working class anymore, it has turned into a group of far leftists. What happened to the Democratic Party of my parent’s generation? Men, with whom even if you disagreed, you respected. JFK and Harry Truman are distant memories and poster boys for today’s democrat. JFK said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country.” Great words that should ring true for all Americans regardless of their place on the political spectrum, except for the liberals today. They take, and beat down and disgrace this great nation. What you have is a group of 60’s radicals, hell bent on converting this representative democracy into a socialist state. They have polarize the young people and filled their heads with the utopian pipe dreams of their former generation and are using the war in Iraq as kindling for the bonfire they will use to consume this great country. Entitlements will increase, taxes will go up, border security will be near non-existent and we will retreat in the war on terror.
The Republicans better wake up to the fact that winning is November will not be easy. The base must be polarized to get out and vote, and with less than 100 days to go I am not seeing that.
Mark my words, if the democrats win both houses of congress, and then win the residency in ’08 it will be the beginning of the Dark Ages of American History.
