Sen. Joe Lieberman, Calls For Rumsfeld Stepping Down
Watch it fly today. You cannot imagine how this is going to play in the mass media. On "Face the Nation" Sen. Joe Lieberman said,
"With all respect to Don Rumsfeld, who has done a grueling job for six years, we would benefit from new leadership to work with our military in Iraq,"
He went on to say,
"We had a naive vision that the Iraqis were going to embrace us and then go on and live happily ever after,"
"There is still hope in Iraq and as long as there is we cannot just pick up and walk away and leave them to the sure disaster that would follow and would compromise our security in the war on terrorism,"
Yes my LWL friends the "Bush bedfellow" is calling for Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to resign. He is calling for new leadership in Iraq and saying the he feels the Bush administration has a "naive vision" on the whole state of affairs in Iraq.
Now you are going to be told that this is a political move. His calls are going to be dismissed by those far left looneys saying that it is merely an attempt to get more votes. But it really isn’t. If it were merely a political move to garner more of the looney support, he would not be actually calling for MORE troops to be deployed there to "to secure the country," and "put severe pressure on the Iraqis to contain sectarian violence."
Of course the Lamont said that Lieberman will not succeed in convincing Connecticut voters that he is not with the Bush Administration "after so many years of stubbornly rubber-stamping Bush's failed policies."
Actually, I believe Lieberman is LEADING Lamont in ALL the polls. That’s not a small lead either. Who is trying to convince who? It should be interesting to see how this criticism does play out in the polls, but it may put him even FURTHER ahead.

It amazes me to watch the LWL continue to act as if they were winning. When the FACTS and polls show otherwise.
