I am appalled.
I am disgusted.
I am saddened.
I am pissed off.
For the Senate Democrats to allow Joe Lieberman to retain his Chairmanship (and frankly, ALL committee positions and, in my opinion, even his membership in the Caucus) is an abomination. This is the time to stop playing politics and do the right thing regardless of the consequences. The Democratic Caucus has failed.
There are only 2 possibilities here:
- The members are aware of their actions and willfully allowed Senator Lieberman to retain his post and are thus unfit for the positions they hold.
- The members are unaware of the their actions and are therefore negligent and unfit for the positions they hold.
Either way, I plan to assist in ousting these cowardly "representatives" during their next election bids.
If the Democrats can't even muster the courage to punish a turncoat like Lieberman - a no-brainer seeing as how even at 60 seats, Lieberman would be in an even stronger position to screw the Democrats - how can they be trusted to do anything right? Not even a slap on the wrist? This is an insult to us and a face-losing, abject failure for the Senate Democrats.
Didn't we just win an election to start doing things right for a change? If the Senate Democrats are not doing the right thing, why should we allow them to remain our representatives? When will they learn?
We're done with the old way and politics as usual, we want change NOW! If you won't do it we'll elect people who will.
