The Washington Prognosis: Joe is looking good

posted October 19th

We know that we still have a tough fight ahead of us for the last 19 days of the campaign. But we take some comfort from knowing that more and more national political observers are saying Ned’s paté may be cooked.

Today’s prognosis comes from the Washington Times, which ran a story under the headline, “Lieberman seen set to win re-election.”

Three weeks before Election Day all indications are that Sen. Joe Lieberman is headed for re-election after stumbling in his party's primary over the summer.
The Connecticut Democrat, who is running as an independent, leads Democratic nominee Ned Lamont in the polls, has raised more campaign money, and has won a number of endorsements from both parties.

A University of Connecticut poll released last week shows Mr. Lieberman leading Mr. Lamont 46 percent to 39 percent, with 12 percent of poll respondents saying they remain undecided. Republican Alan Schlesinger received just 3 percent in the poll.

The Lieberman campaign also has a fundraising edge, with campaign finance reports showing Mr. Lieberman has raised $14.8 million, compared with $9 million for Mr. Lamont. Mr. Lamont has spent $11 million of his personal fortune on the race, including a $2 million donation made last week.

I love how the Joe Schmoe campaign is quoting polls that were taken before the Monday and Wednesday debates, where Ned Lamont and Alan Schlesinger spanked Joe's ass.

And the Q-Poll that's coming out shortly; it was ALSO taken before the debates. Unless they've decided to toss it and take another one that more accurately reflects the latest voter opinions.

Can Connecticut RISK Another Lieberman Term?

Can you imagine what would happen here in Connecticut if we had a major hurricane before we get rid of Lieberman's "FEMA Leadership"?

Lieberman is responsible for Rubber-Stamping "Heckuva Job Brownie" to his FEMA leadership post in an astonishing 42 minutes without checking references. Later on, even after the problems with Brown's qualifications were revealed Lieberman refused to do anything about it. Then, Katrina struck. The result: thousands of dead Americans. Post-Katrina? Lieberman has done nothing. Lieberman has learned nothing. He won't even accept that he's done anything wrong. Lieberman has told us he "doesn't want to play the blame game". FEMA is still broken.

But accountability is not a game, and Lieberman is responsible for those lost lives.

Do we really want to be the next NOLA?

Keep Connecticut and America Safe. Vote for ANYONE But Lieberman

First Joe LIE-man whines about Lamont's funding ...now that the figures are out he says it reflects support ....what BULL?!!?

A $300,000 from a lobbyist is NOT even worth ONE vote if the lobbyist is NOT a CT resident. So what has Joe LIE-man got to say now about his "poverty" status?

BTW the numbers don't even add up for Lamont .....can you do maths, E Went-blank?
