Joe Lieberman Rips Dems and Moonbat Bloggers

WASHINGTON — Sen. Joe Lieberman on Thursday painted a dim picture of his party, saying Democrats have given up their moral authority on foreign policy because they are more concerned with opposing Republicans than doing what is right.
Joe Lieberman (D, I)— who has run for the top spot in the Oval Office as well as the No. 2 — is unique in the Senate, having won re-election last year following a Democratic primary election defeat tinged with anti-war sentiment. He ran a rare successful independent campaign by stumping largely on his foreign policy stance in support of the Iraq war and against terrorism. Lieberman has maintained his Democratic affiliation, caucusing in the Senate with Democrats.

Lieberman said "Democrats aren't being guided by principle, but partisanship".

"Even as evidence has mounted that General Petraeus' new counterinsurgency strategy is succeeding, Democrats have remained emotionally invested in a narrative of defeat and retreat in Iraq, reluctant to acknowledge the progress we are now achieving, or even that that progress has enabled us to begin drawing down our troops there," he added

On the amendment to name the Iranian Republican guard as a terrorist group that Democrats opposed Lieberman said while he thought the amendment would be a no-brainer, what resulted was a "case study in the distrust and partisan polarization that now poisons our body politic on even the most sensitive issues of national security."
He said left-wing blogs offered "wild conspiracy theories," and the amendment had "nothing that could be construed as a green light for an attack on Iran."

"There is something profoundly wrong — something that should trouble all of us — when we have elected Democratic officials who seem more worried about how the Bush administration might respond to Iran's murder of our troops, than about the fact that Iran is murdering our troops".

"There is likewise something profoundly wrong when we see candidates who are willing to pander to this politically paranoid, hyper-partisan sentiment in the Democratic base, even if it sends a message of weakness and division to the Iranian regime," Lieberman said in a thinly veiled swipe at Clinton's Democratic challengers.

"wild conspiracy theories"... "politically paranoid, hyper partisan sentiment in the Democratic base"...sound familiar Okie Funk, SoonerThought, Mahatma X, ... etc?
OUCH!

...lol, let's not get carried away Marie, I love Joe too... for his honesty on the war, but he is way off on taxes, abortion, gun control, the environment, drilling for oil, the economy.... he's no conservative, but he is the kind of Democrat that we Republicans can respect.
Honest.

BTW- I linked to your latest post on the great news from Iraq.
Joe referred to the news that we have been able to reduce the number of troops already due to the success of the surge...
