Is Joe Lieberman The Only Democrat That Get's It?

Lieberman Calls For Wider Use Of Surveillance Cameras

Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.), the chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, said Sunday he wants to “more widely” use surveillance cameras across the country.

“The Brits have got something smart going in England, and it was part of why I believe they were able to so quickly apprehend suspects in the terrorist acts over the weekend, and that is they have cameras all over London and other of their major cities,” Lieberman said.



“I think it’s just common sense to do that here much more widely,” he added. “And of course, we can do it without compromising anybody’s real privacy.”

Lieberman lamented the “petty, partisan fighting” in Congress and called on his colleagues to join together to upgrade the nation’s electronic surveillance capabilities.

“Right now, we’re at a partisan gridlock over the question of whether the American government can listen into conversations or follow e-mail trails of non-American citizen,” he said on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos. “That’s wrong. We’ve got to solve that problem, pass a law to give the people working for us the ability to protect us.”

Lieberman, who is more closely aligned with the GOP than the Democrats he caucuses with on the war in Iraq and many national security issues and insisted Sunday that the surge in Iraq is working.

“You might say that, in Iraq, we’ve got the enemy on the run, but for some reason, in Washington, a lot of politicians are on the run to order a retreat by our troops even as they are beginning to succeed,” he said.

Lieberman stated it is not fair to conclude that he is more likely to endorse a Republican for president.

But he added that “so far I would say that Democratic candidates, in the larger questions of American security, have been disappointing, and I hope things will get better as this goes on.”

Joe Lieberman seems to be the only Democrat to understand what is going on here. Why? Why is it only Joe Lieberman understands that there are Radicals out there that want us all dead and that we need to stengthen our Nation's Security? The rest of the Democrat's in Congress are not fit for the job. Why are the rest of the Democrat's so empty headed?

One small correction. Joe Lieberman is not a Democrat.

He is listed in the Senate record for the 110th Congress as an "Independent Democrat" (whatever that is.)

He caucuses with the Democrats, but is politically really a Bush Republican.

Lieberman has been one of the Senate's most consistent supporters of Israel, an advocate of the Iraq War, and a defender of the United States' use of torture against "enemy combatants". [3] On domestic issues, he holds liberal views on some economic issues, though he is a supporter of free trade. Lieberman has also voted with Republicans on some ethical issues, and is one of the Senate's leading opponents of violence in video games and on television. Lieberman describes himself as being "genuinely an Independent," saying "I agree more often than not with Democrats on domestic policy. I agree more often than not with Republicans on foreign and defense policy."

Joanne,

Or maybe he is the only Democrat that get's it!

He only has an (I) in front of his name because that little nitwit (I forget his name) beat him in his own party, forcing Lieberman to have to run as an independant and won.

I do however wish Lieberman would switch parties and just come all the way over to the Republican side.

Fat chance of that happening though.

I have gotten to the point, I dont care if they rip off the terrorist's fingernails with a pair of pliers to find out where the next attack is going to be located.

To answer the question in yur title.... YES. Me thinks that Lieberman will eventually announce a move to the GOP.

His former party has abandoned him and he no longer believes as they do.

Joanne said... defender of the United States' use of torture against "enemy combatants"

The US does not torture prisoners Joanne. That is a bumper sticker created to by people that are in oppositon to the war. The US does not have a policy that allows for torturing prisoners.

Joe Lieberman is a liberal. He has voted with the liberals in every instance including the shamisty immigration bill. Lieberman, unlike his liberal colleagues understands what is at stake. The other liberals have decided to bury their head in the sand and become obstrucitonists and corruptionists. They will pay for it at the next election.

some people here go on about "big brother" but most people are glad that the cops can go to some tape, somewhere to nail a terrorist or even regular crim.

Gee, joanne, when you said, Lieberman has been one of the Senate's most consistent supporters of Israel, an advocate of the Iraq War, and a defender of the United States' use of torture against "enemy combatants, you made it sound like they were bad things.
I guess Mr. Lieberman is insufficiently anti-Semitic for the progressive, angry, Bush-hating, wishing-Saddam-was-back wing of the Democratic party.
