Run Joe Run!
Flame of Freedom ^ | 11/03/06 | Andrew Surprise

Posted on 11/03/2006 2:07:37 AM PST by AKSurprise

This article over at CNN is lamenting the imminent demise of Ned Lamont at the hands of Joe Lieberman. The Dems and media are afraid with all Joe’s GOP support in Connecticut that Republican House candidates will benefit.

“Lieberman has the support of 73 percent of Republicans and 51 percent of independents, according to a Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday.”

“Lieberman’s coattails could carry the GOP incumbents to re-election and undercut Democratic hopes of majority control of the House.”

What about Dem support?

Is it low, or being unreported to fit the liberal matrix?

So the tsunami was just the wake from the drive by media.

Looks like Karl Rove has Joe on the 72 hour plan also. “Lieberman is getting assistance from Republican New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s political team"

This is the only true Iraq war referendum in the country and the pro-war side is winning.

As usual the media has it bass akwards. We aren't riding on Joe's coat tails, He is riding on ours!

Which proves that we will NOT lose the house or senate. If even the moonbat NE can see that the WOT is important and vote for Joe, just think about the rest of the country. When they go to the booth they will vote with their brain, not their heart.

He won't remember.

I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think I am.

"Lieberman’s coattails could carry the GOP incumbents to re-election..."

...because GOP voters definitely don't want Lamont, and have a reason to show up at the polls. I think Tuesday is going to be pretty special. :')

You are probably correct unfortunately.
Meaning no disrespect, I hope you are absolutely wrong.

Lieberman... will still be Lieberman. However, he will remember how he was belittled by Dodd, Kerry and a host of Dhimmi's. Lieberman won't be bitter... but at some point... he will 'get even'.

"He won't remember."

He will remember. He will vote with the Conservatives on the war and the Liberals on everything else.

Just like he did before the election.

To be fair to Leiberman, his position on the various issues have been pretty clear for some time and haven't changed much. So even with the help from us, he still has the obligation to be honest to his constituents.

Let's not forget it was that Republican GIANT Rush who backed Lieberman in an effort to ditch one of the most despicable RINO's, i.e. Lowell Weicker.

Regardless of the outcome of this election, rinos deserve to be challenged vociferously and often.
Dogs that they are.

I got a mailing from Lieberman that I thought was remarkable. He and other pro Iraq war candidates should run more on this theme: It said "what does Ned Lamont's biggest supporter say about Americans killed in Iraq: screw them!" And inside it links this quote with that creepy Daily Kos guy Markos. It has a picture of Markos next to Lamont in one of Lamont's TV ads. I think this says it all. Lieberman seems to be winning but other candidates who are hurt by the Iraq albatross ought to stress how their left wing opponents play into a hate for American military power and a soft on terror attitude.

-

That should read:

"Lieberman is getting assistance from fellow Democrat New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's political team"

That's why I'll be shocked if he caucuses with the GOP.

In an evenly split Senate, an independent Lieberman will be a very powerful senator.

And a very powerful senator WILL run again (in 2012).

In which case, he WILL remember WHO elected him, because he will need to count on those same people to re-elect him.

Expect Lieberman's votes to be more moderate.

Before running as Gore's vice-presidential candidate, he was for vouchers, decency in the media and was for prayer in school.

===
But as always, watch what Lieberman does, not what he says.

Joe has already made it clear that he will caucus with the Dumbs.

So this is a very mixed blessing.

Joe will vote just like he has voted in the past.

If the Senate balance of power ends up tied or with a very close GOP edge, the GOP should offer Joe some key committee post, to help prevent the libs from wrecking U.S. foreign policy. Joe could prove to be a key swing vote on a few important issues.

It seems like he may be burning some bridges to the Dems, like his criticism of Lamont for appearing with Sharpton. That's a no no for a Dem.
