    Reid told Lieberman that he had to step down from his position as chair of the Homeland Security Committee if he remained in the Democratic Caucus. Lieberman did not accept this offer, which means that his only redress is to go around Reid and petition the Senate Democratic Steering and Outreach Committee to keep his seat.

    Lieberman Meets With Reid, Tries To Cling To Senate Chairmanship

    We've watched for years as Joe called war opponents traitors, lied about wanting to bring the troops home to get elected, stabbed Democrats in the back and did everything he could to keep Barack Obama out of the White House. Lieberman laundered smears that even McCain wasn't willing to launch himself.

    No way.

    Make no mistake about it -- Lieberman was openly threatening the Democratic Caucus in his press conference today.

    Enough is enough.

    Please sign the petition to the Steering and Outreach Committee, telling them it's time for Joe to go.

    After giving this issue some thought, it has occured to me that Joe is a sitting United States Senator and as such is entitled to all the respect due the office in which he holds. If his fellow Senator Harry Reid does not wish to give it to him and publicly scolds him like some bad schoolboy , then Joe should show Mr. Reid the respect he deserves for that action which is none. The fact is that Joe has been a loyal member of the Democratic Caucus for many years and because he didn't support the choosen one he is being subjected to disrespect both him and and the office in which he holds. This is not only a insult to the the Senator himself but to the good people of the state of Conn. that elected him in spite of being abandoned by his party in the 2006 election. Senator Joe supported a long time friend and fellow member of the Senate in this last election which showed his loyality to a friend and put that above party a lesson many in congress still need to learn. In this case the Senator owe's Harry Reid not one thing and once again Harry Reid has disrespected himself and the office he holds, the people of Nevada and the United States Senate over this highly partisan move.

    Is bipartisan pol a republican term for traitor?

    He wanted Republicans to be in the majority and he wanted a republican president to keep the war going. He actually campaigned against us all across the country. He tried to win over the Jewish vote for the Republicans.

    He can't run as a Democrat again in his state.

    Why is he so ready to jump to the other side? It is all about one issue, IRAQ. So what is it about Lieberman that makes him think differently than the rest of us Democrats? When you figure that out, then you realize he isn't representing the citizens of his state. Unless you mean the state of Israel.

    If this were a Republican, the GOP would have taken him out back and whipped his ass.

    He is DONE in the Democratic party.

    And it's not strong on national defense. Iraq didn't make us strong, doesn't make us LOOK strong, doesn't make us stronger.

    This is Lieberman's number one constituent.

    Sheldon Adelson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And I don't think Mr. Adelson lives in Connecticut.

    Lieberman is a Senator from Connecticut. He won because the Republicans in Connecticut voted for him. He should run as a Republican next time.
