We'll take Lieberman!

Reports are that Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is reaching out to Joe Lieberman about the possibility of Lieberman caucusing with the GOP. This is in response to the upcoming humiliation that Harry Reid has proposed doing to Lieberman. I say come on over Joe! While conservatives don't agree with Joe on 95% of the issues, the 5% we do agree with him on are of great importance. Whether it be Homeland Security, the War in Iraq, or the Nation of Israel, Joe Lieberman would be an excellent advocate for the Conservative position on those issues.

This entire situation with Lieberman reveals the truth behind the Dems and their false claim of wanting bipartisanship. If Harry Reid and the rest can't work with Joe Lieberman then how in the world will they ever cross all the way over the aisle to reach out to a true conservative. Some are even saying that Obama will have to step in and save Lieberman. It appears that if Joe wants to keep his chairmanship position, he'll have to bow down to the messiah and ask for forgiveness. These folks are demented.

Now some Senate insiders are speculating that Obama could save Lieberman's job by issuing a statement saying he "forgives Joe" and that everyone needs to work together for the good of the country. (CBS News)
In response to: Will calling your Dem Senator help boot Lieberman?

Feel free to take him. Pretty ironic that conservatives would jump on the chance to try and mock the democrats for opposing someone who 1) Isn't even officially in the party and 2) Actively campaigned against the parties presidential nominee AND dragged that nominee through the mud in the process.

Take him and enjoy having his vote on all those bills relating to terrorism and homeland security fail 41-59 while he continues to vote liberal on everything else until he is ultimately voted out by his CT constituency in 2012.

Ummm... Wasn't he your vice presidential candidate 8 years ago? Also, I'm glad you're admitting you'll be voting against protecting our homeland and fighting terrorism.

The anger against Joe Lieberman goes back to 2006. He was not the only Senator who continued to support a forever occupation.

But even then he was unique as a Democrat in going out of his way to taunt those whose support he demanded.
