Joe now 5-for-5 with major Connecticut papers

Posted Nov. 2nd - (the day of the debate that Joe it TOO CHICKEN to attend!)

Today Joe got three more glowing newspapers endorsements — the Stamford Advocate, Greenwich Time, and the Connecticut Post -- making him 5-for-5 with major Connecticut papers for the general election.

The joint endorsement of the Stamford Advocate and the Greenwich Time picked up on and validated a central argument of our campaign, that Joe is the only candidate who can fix the partisan gridlock blocking progress in Washington on so many critical issues.

America needs change in Congress. Partisanship and one-party domination often result in divisiveness or myopic national and world views that do not allow mistakes to be challenged on issues like Iraq and the war on terrorism. But some experience and an emphasis on dialogue among lawmakers will be required if change is to be productive. Thus, even though we have been troubled by U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman's support for Iraq war goals that seem increasingly stymied, we believe he is the right choice now for both America and Connecticut.

A Democrat running independently for re-election, Mr. Lieberman has stressed cooperation at times with the current Republican majority. In a new Congress, that background and approach could help him become a bridge between some of the current, bitterly partisan positions. Such divisiveness in recent years has produced bad legislation and prevented consensus and reasonable compromise that we think most Americans would prefer.

The Advocate and Time editors also noted the unique value of Joe’s experience, saying at this time in our history, we need a Senator with more experience and demonstrated abilities than Ned Lamont.

We think Mr. Lieberman has shown the required qualities. He is equipped to promote change for the better in a new Congress and two years down the road with a new administration -- perhaps even on Iraq and other international issues -- and help obtain proper recognition of our state's need

The Connecticut Post editorial celebrated Joe’s independent-mindedness and willingness to take tough stands for what he believes is right.

Lieberman is not your orthodox party politician. Time after time, he has risen above partisanship to vote his principles and time after time he has reached across the political aisle to build coalitions based on those beliefs and what he feels is correct for America and for Connecticut.

He is a politician not afraid of taking risks and upsetting people, including his party and his constituents.

And like their counterparts at the Advocate and many Connecticut voters, the Post editors emphasized Joe’s experience and his ability to deliver results for the state.

Ned Lamont, the novice Democrat who won the party's nomination in the August primary, simply hasn't made a compelling case for why he would make a better senator.

Lamont is a successful businessman who is quite intelligent and articulate in detail on issues. Aside from the Iraq war, however, he and Lieberman really don't differ that much on basic issues, especially domestic affairs.

Why trade in experience for a freshman face?. . .

Lieberman, though he may be a petitioning candidate, clearly represents the best choice for Connecticut based on his experience and the hard work that has been characteristic of his overall career in state and national politics.

Because Joe LIE-man represents the best example of how 18 years eating from the trough in Washington DC has fatten the pig such that it is NOT doing anymore work.

Keith Olberman called George Bush stupid.

It is senators like Joe LIE-man who has enabled such stupidity to put America in the worst position it ever has been. His brand of bipartisanship has gotten us into Iraq, and can't seem to find a way out.

We don't need this kind of "bipartisanship" that worships stupidity.

Yupe. Spot on.

Joe LIE-man is a wannabe Republican who can't decide; maybe that's why he worships the DECIDER, George Bushit, who has shown himself to be so stupid he is nearly always on the wrong side of all issues, e.g. Iraq, torture, Social security, aLL-child-left-behind, Katrina, etc.etc.

Joe flip-flops or lies on most issues .....that is 18 years of ineptitude for you.

This election, send Joe away ...maybe he can spend his retirement in Crawford with his pal, Georgie Bushit Stupidity.

" ...This year, Lieberman has done it again. The senator who sought his party’s presidential nomination in 2004 made preparations to abandon his party even before the outcome of the August primary, by lining up enough signatures to run as an independent. In his strange concession speech on primary night, Lieberman compared the loss to a football game, saying he was only down after the first half. By refusing to cede his interests to the decision of Connecticut Democrats, Lieberman also prolonged a headline-grabbing race that continues to draw attention away from other Democratic efforts in this election. Once again, his self-interest has cost Democrats opportunities. The three-term incumbent has since campaigned on experience and on a message of bipartisanship, saying his focus is on representing the people of Connecticut. But his track record on the loyalty front makes such pronouncements suspect, at least. "

Guess where did this come from?

Just as GW has been the best thing that has ever happened to al Qaeda, Lieberman is the best thing that has ever happened to GW. First, as the worst VP pick of all-time, he helped (along with Al Gore) blow the easiest hand-off presidential election ever. Second, the obvious pandering to the same folks who ridiculed him during the entire 2000 election. Any human in Connecticut (on either side of the fence) that would even consider voting for this coward and loser is beyond me.

I can't think of a more pathetic human being than Joe Lieberman. He's like the kid who gets picked on at school, who then tries to befriend the bullies rather than get a big enough pair to fight them.

Move over Florida, Connecticut is poised to surpass you as the stupidest state in the union should Joe be re-elected.

Come on, Connecticut. Surely this isn't happening!

Joe doesn't "rise above" partisanship. He crawls on his belly through slime in order to further his own agenda: The Holy JoeMan Empire.

All those years of wallowing in filth and slime are showing in his behavior during this campaign.

I couldn't have said it better, chele. Being a spineless coward doesn't mean you rise above partisanship. And to NOT be partisan with the incompetence in which our country has been run the last six years is to be an idiot.

Joe, if our government were a deli, you would be the shit sandwich. At least Uncle Dick Cheney (my second most-despised man in America, and a warmonger whose deferments are only surpassed by you, Joe) actually believes in his delusions of grandeur. You are a pathetic, Machiavellian piece of crap, and, even though you will probably win this election through the stupidity of the electorate, you will go into the annals of political history as one of the biggest cowards to ever serve our country....wait a minute, I can't think of any of your stature....the BIGGEST coward ever to serve our country.
