Lamont v Lieberman

This week, challenger Ned Lamont defeated Senator Joseph Lieberman in the Connecticut Democratic primary. The main issue appears to be over Lieberman position on the war in Iraq.

Many Democrats would like to see a timetable for a pullout; some want an immediate pullout. Lieberman is in line with the current administration.

This race addresses two key issues: politics and the GWOT.

Politics -- Lieberman will run as an Independent. But as a Democrat, he will pull some votes away from Lamont. The Republican will have a greater chance of winning this blue state.

GWOT -- the Democrats, from Harry Reid to Howard Dean, do not believe we are involved in a GWOT. That Iraq has nothing to do with it. There are very few people on either side that want to continue spending money and lives in Iraq. But pulling out now (like Spain) or announcing a timetable is insane. Militant Islam will wage this war whether we are in Iraq or not. These nazis want to control the world, not for religious purposes but for power. They are as Muslim as Castro is Catholic.

This race shows the true colors of the Democrats. Will they spin it to their advantage or will the American people see them for what they are: self-serving cowards that want your money for their own power-wielding purposes?
