A River In Egypt

WFSB

Lieberman blamed Bush for his primary loss during his appearance on "Face The State" this morning:

"It's clear that in the Democratic party, that we're so angry at President Bush and the Iraq war … notwithstanding the fact they agree with me on most other issues. They wanted to cast a 'no' vote," Lieberman said.


Sen. Lieberman still cannot admit that he himself might have had anything to do with the fact that Democrats turned out in record numbers last month to vote him out of office.

Much less that Ned Lamont's inspiring campaign might have had anything to do with his historic win.

But that wasn't nearly the most insulting thing to come out of the interview this morning.

Update: From JoanBasil in the comments:

I would like to see Ned Lamont use what Jim Webb used in the Allen/Webb debate on Meet The Press this morning:

Webb said that he remembered what President Eisenhower said about the Korean War and the mistakes the Truman Administration made and that the same people who got us into that war would not be the people who got us out of it.

Thats a very strong point. Bush will never admit he made any mistakes and neither will Lieberman.


It really is all about judgment.
Comments:
"But ultimately, my responsibility is to do what I think is right," said Lieberman.

Let the above be a warning to anyone who thinks voting for Lieberman means anything good for Connecticut or the country.

A minor quibble: A vote for Ned Lamont for Senator is not a "no" vote. A vote for Ned Lamont is a vote for Ned Lamont. Democrat from Connecticut. I doubt Lieberman is able to understand the distinction.

Then again, perhaps he does understand the distinction.
 
It appears that Lieberman has forgotten who attacked us on 9/11.

It was Osama Bin Ladin, who was harbored by the Taliban in Afghanistan.

That is why we went to war in Afghanistan - to defeat the Taliban and to capture or kill Osama Bin Ladin.

Thus far, neither of these missions is complete.

And our brave troops are still fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan.

How could Lieberman forget who attacked us on 9/11? Has he learned nothing?

Was Lieberman asked the same question Russert asked Allen and asked Cheney last week: If you knew back in 2002-2003 what you know now, that there were no WMD, would you still be in favor of going to war? Allen didn't really answer.

Webb also made a good point that he had warned Allen before the war that the reason there was no exit strategy for Iraq was that the people who wanted us to go in didn't intend to ever leave.
