MoveOn: Apparently Harry Reid Cannot

From the New York Times (Friday, November 8th):
Mr. Obama is apparently ready to bury the hatchet with his new fans. “President-elect Obama has made it clear that he wants to put partisanship behind and work together to solve the many challenges confronting the country,” said Stephanie Cutter, a spokeswoman for the Obama transition team. “We’re pleased that others do as well.”

The Senate majority leader, Harry Reid of Nevada, who will help decide Mr. Lieberman’s committee assignment, sounded less ready to forgive, at least when it came Mr. Lieberman’s support for Mr. McCain. “Joe Lieberman has done something that I think was improper, wrong, and I’d like — if we weren’t on television, I’d use a stronger word of describing what he did,” he said on CNN Friday.

Now that’s the new spirit of bipartisanship we’ve heard so much about! Thank you Senator Reid.

There is bipartisanship and then there is betraying your party. First he decides to run as an independent against the Democratic candidate when he lost the primary, then he supports McCain and Bush at every turn, and finally he stabs Obama in the back. He has only 2 loyalties, to himself and Israel. The USA and the Democratic party are way down that list.
What will it take to get rid of this traitorous loser?

One of the reasons why I started this blog was in response to the veiled anti-Semitism thrown at Sen. Lieberman. First of all, for someone who cares only about Israel, why doesn't he support the release of Jonathan Pollard from Prison? Moreover, how is Senator Lieberman more pro-Israel than any of his Senate colleagues? Lastly, why is being pro-Israel (or pro-France, pro-England, etc…)mean that you are anti-America? Martin Luther King Jr. once said that: “You declare, my friend, that you do not hate the Jews, you are merely 'anti-Zionist.' And I say, let the truth ring forth from the high mountain tops, let it echo through the valleys of God's green earth: When people criticize Zionism, they mean Jews--this is God's own truth.”

sigh, god. Can you go and find a civics book. In January, the new senate will convene and committee assignments will be handed out. Most chairs, BEING DEMOCRATS, will keep their seats unless the step down, like Senator Byrd. He is not a democrat and should give up the chair. Especially the chair of THAT committee. Let him chair the George W libray committee.
