Joe Lieberman sucks

liebermanOh, Joe, Joe, Joe.

Remember the good old days?  Those  magical moments when Rock Star Al Gore was nearly swept into the presidency by force of majority alone?

Imagine that George W. just hadn’t happened at all….ahhhhhhh….excuse me, I have to go into the next room…

Anyways, so this guy who nearly carried the Democratic Party into the new millenium, losing in the end only by supreme court decision, is basically just another Republican asshole.

Lets review for a moment, shall we?

You get the idea.  Joe Lieberman sucks.

And now, on the verge of one of the most important reforms to our nation’s health care system, an “opt-out” (hey, its better than nothing, right) public option (or, in republicanese, “Socialism“), Joe Lieberman is threatening to join a republican filibuster unless the public option is removed..in other words, Joe Lieberman might be THE vote, lucky senator #41 (out of 100) that prevents any kind of meaningful reform from even getting to debate, let alone an up or down vote.

The fact that he represents a state with HUGE support for the public option apparently means nothing to this prick.

Kills me that this guy is holding all the cards.  Here’s an idea:  maybe, just maybe, we can go old school:  lets make him stand up on the floor and ACTUALLY FILIBUSTER health care reform.  Maybe he can explain in excrutiating detail how health care reform, unlike two simultaneous middle east wars, will wreck our nation, while 5 people die every hour from not having health care insurance.

Joe Lieberman sucks.

  1. Joe Lieberman is the WORST politician of the new millennium. 76% of his state favors a public option but he isn’t listening. He SUCKS.

  2. It is no accident that one Senator can be an obstructionist. He, and the filibuster for that matter, remind us that the governmental sovereignty allowed the state governments is what is really represented in the US Senate (unlike in the US House of Reps). As frustrating as it is, there is a trade off in wiping this out in favor of remaking the US Senate on the basis of the principles of the US House…trade offs given the scale of the US. and what the US is. For this argument, pls see http://euandus3.wordpress.com/2009/12/14/will-there-be-a-health-reform-bill-out-of-the-us-senate/

  3. “76% of his state favors a public option but he isn’t listening.” but this is over ridden by the 100% of healthcare companies based in Ct that tell him to vote no.

    He is a shameless lackey for big business and Israel.

    Shame on you Joe, shame.
