Saturday Morning Round-Up
- Ned demands Lieberman repudiate Cheney's attack on Connecticut Democratic voters:
“It’s time for George Bush, Dick Cheney and Joe Lieberman to stop insulting Connecticut voters by likening their desire for change to a desire to aid and abet terrorists,” Lamont said. “It is absolutely unacceptable for any U.S. Senator to sit by silently while the Vice President of the United States attacks his state’s voters with such outrageous and inflammatory allegations. The fact is, the vast majority of Connecticut wants a change of course in Iraq because they know Senator Lieberman’s ‘stay the course’ policy is seriously endangering our country.”
Of course, despite all the faux outrage he shows every day, you know Joe will show no outrage - real or fake - about this. It's simple: Joe agrees with Dick.
- In between recounting the antics of Lieberman supporters yesterday, Pazniokas smacks down Joe at the press conference he called - and then moved - to "complain" about the not-at-all outrageous claim that he will vote to continue the Iraq war:
Lieberman later held a press conference at a fenced-in construction site, backed by non-singing construction workers, to complain about a Lamont ad that says, "A vote for Joe Lieberman means more war."...
"This is reprehensible and wrong, and I'm not going to stand for it," said Lieberman, standing in a construction site near Dillon Stadium in Hartford, where access was limited.
Lamont has called for Congress to set a 12- to 18-month deadline for withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq, while Lieberman and the Bush administration oppose any congressional deadline.
"This is the most baseless accusation in a campaign that has been filled with baseless accusations," Lieberman said. "The fact is that none of us wants more war."
The ad does not say that he does.
"I think with less than a week before the election, Sen. Lieberman is trying to confuse people about his position on the war," Lamont said. "I mean, with one breath he says the troops must stay, and then he says, `I want them out as soon as possible.'"
- CTBob and Spazeboy were out and about yesterday and filed reports from the trail.
- The Register on Lieberman supporters having the gall to disrupt an event with seniors:
Lamont got off to a stalled start in Hartford when a meeting with senior citizens at the Percival Smith Towers Senior Housing was interrupted by about 30 people from the Lieberman campaign, according to state Rep. Evelyn Mantilla, D-Hartford.
She said they crowded into the walkway and were so loud, chanting and jostling, that Lamont left after meeting some five people. "I didn’t mind the noise, but when they crowded the entrance, they startled the seniors," she said.
- AP: Lieberman is whining about Dodd.
