Lieberman Speaks

There has been a lot of talk about the re-branding of the Republican Party, but here is a new twist. Former Vice Presidential Candidate, Joe Lieberman, who ran with Al Gore in 2000, talks about retro fitting the Democratic Party to its modern day roots of John F Kennedy, Harry Truman and Franklin Roosevelt.

Click Here, Lieberman writes an opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal

It is a good read.

This is an interesting read. However, Mr. Leiberman failed to mention in his article that the Democrats' position on Iraq was established after they recognized the lies of President Bush. Even though these lies are still believed by the Rush Limbaugh ditto heads and followers of other right wing talk show entertainers, it has become well established and admitted to by the Bush White House that Iraq had no connection to Al Qaeda and the New York bombing. No Democrat has ever said that they were willing to surrender to terror. That is simply a right-wing fabrication which they hope will get them through the next election.

Saddam, however was rewarding terror bombers in Israel. Joe Leiberman is heavily lobbied by the State of Israel and would like nothing better than to drag the United States into an attack against the enemies of the Jewish State. He would take us into Iran in a heartbeat. Don't get suckered by Joe. His interest is not in America; it is in Israel and what John McCain has to offer him.

Joe Lieberman's War

Neoconservative godfather Norman Podhoretz has written that "as an American and as a Jew" he prays that President George W. Bush will attack Iran. He rests his case on his belief that 2007 is really 1938, that Iran is Nazi Germany, and that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is Hitler. His most recent book, World War IV: The Long Struggle Against Islamofascism, was described by a reviewer as "a hectoring, often illogical screed based on cherry-picked facts and blustering assertions (often made without any supporting evidence), a book that furiously hurls accusations of cowardice, anti-Americanism, and sheer venality at any and all opponents of the Bush doctrine, be they on the right or the left."
But while Podhoretz cannot start a war alone, there are plenty of others in the government, including Vice President Dick Cheney and the National Security Council's Elliott Abrams, who share his enthusiasm for a preemptive attack on Iran. The leader of Congress' Iran hawks is undoubtedly Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut.

Why not make the effort to restore the Democratic party back to the roots of Thomas Jefferson?

Considering the current state of affairs in American politics as a whole, you could probably run the country better just by referencing the Jefferson writings.

Pretty sad when the thoughts and conclusions of a man who died 182 years ago seem to be more relevant and effective that the current lot of political puppets.
