    I guess you don't know much about Liebs, because he's no liberal. When you're pro life, a Bush toadie and agree with the evangelical Republicans on virtually every social issue it's hard to call yourself a liberal.

    Joe's no more a "liberal" than Bush is a "conservative". Stop being simplistic and try to look a little deeper than what you read from dumbass posters like me.

    Well a few years ago we were being told by Algore and dems that Joe L should be a heartbeat away from the Presidency, now he not fit to be dog catcher.

    Interesting.

    Okay, so pro-life and vocal support of the Iraq war are now liberal positions. Whatever you're smoking, I want some of it! :rofl:

    Great news about McKinney though. She's a disgrace. Hank Johnson is a much stronger canidate for the general.

    IIRC Joe L is not pro life he is very much a pro abortion pol. Other than the GWOT Joey has a great rating with Liberials.

    That's because when liberals see "(D)" next to anyone's name they assume the person is a liberal. Same way a "conservatives" see the "(R)" they automatically assume the guy is against taxes, gun control and spends less.

    Yeah, you're right on abortion.

    I still don't consider him anywhere close to being liberal. Anyone that has a (D) in front of their name is a liberal in a social conservative's book anyway. For a liberal he has a number of conservative positions:

    For the Patriot act

    For Michael Hayden as CIA director

    For the Graham amendment,

    For Gonzales for Attorney general

    For John Roberts for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court

    Against raising the minimum wage

    A member of the Federalist society

    Voted against SB 317 which would have prevented which was designed to protect personal information from govt. examination.

    And a unabashed cheerleader for the Iraq war.

    Incidentally, his 2005 score was 66 according to the National Journal ratings. And oh yeah, Sean Hannity loves the guy.

    So if I understand you correctly Orrin Hatch (and the majority of pubbies in the senate) isn't a conservative because he voted for J Reno for AG and all Clinton's Supreme Court appointee's.

    Interesting.

    We need new people representing this country..

    Not people who lose and then change party from a dem to ind to re-enter the senate....Change with new people is good, change with the same people is just the same...

    He should take his defeat as a sign that people want change, thats why lamont won and joe lost...

    Instead he will change his partyname to give it another go.

    Nice resolve and steadfast determination, going against the people.

    Not at all. But making Liebs out to be a Ted Kennedy or even a JOhn Kerry style liberal is a bit of a leap. He's taken a lot of conservative positions. That of course is his right, and frankly, I don't mind independent thinkers. But he's not a liberal.

    appears you don't know much about Liebs first he is pro-choice, has disagreed with Bush on many issues particularly social issues. Stop reading the lies from the Lamont camp.

    Funny part is the independent voters of CT combined with cross over republicans will get him elected in November to represent the majority of the CT citizens not just the half of the democratic party that is ultra left.

    heh, Lamont is only a new person in name......he is spouting the same old BS partisan politics the ultra left of the democratic party has been spouting for years now. More Lieberman's are what this country actually needs, moderates that forgo partisan party politics in favor accepting ideas from all sources that make this country a better place to live.
