Former Sen. Joe Lieberman Says the Democratic Party Will Not Win Future Elections if Party Taken Over by Liberal Wing
FORMER DEMOCRAT SENATOR LIEBERMAN SAYS DEMS WILL NOT WIN FUTURE ELECTIONS IF MOONBATS TAKE OVER PARTY …
In the wake of the 2016 elections, former U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman from Connecticut who ran as a Democrat and Independent stated that the Democrat Party will not win future elections if the liberal wing of the party takes over. He is 100% correct. The Democrat party is no longer the party of Truman or John F. Kennedy. Lieberman said, ”It’s certainly not the party that I got drawn to …”. The one time Democrat VP pick by Al Gore is saying that the Democrat party is lurching too far right and losing touch with the American people. However, the Democrat party is moving far left as they had a self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders as a presidential candidate who appealed to nearly half of the party.
The Democrat party that once represented the working class people and the blue color individuals is no longer. Thus the reason why during the 2016 elections Trump not only pierced the Democrat “blue wall” of the Rust Belt, but knocked it down completely. With Donald trump victories in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Iowa and Wisconsin, his message resonated with voters who the Democrats have long forgot.
Former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) argues the Democratic Party will not win elections if the liberal wing of the party takes over.
“Here is my fear about the future of the Democratic Party. In a way, relatively speaking, Hillary Clinton was representative of … center-left of the Democratic Party, not the pure left,” Lieberman said in a radio interview with John Catsimatidis on Sunday.
“Now I think there will be a real attempt by the left-left of the Democratic Party to take over the party, and I don’t think that’s the way to go to make it an effective party,” he continued.
“It’s certainly not the party that I got drawn to … it’s not the party that I worked so hard for when Bill Clinton was president and it’s not going to be a winning party.”
Democrats have been grappling with the future of their party following Donald Trump’s upset win over Hillary Clinton last month. Republicans also maintained their majorities in both the House and Senate.
If the Democrats keep up their far left liberal leanings, they are in for a tough 2018 midterm elections. Of the 33 seats up for reelection in the U.S. Senate, Democrats or Independents who caucus with Democrats have 25 seats to defend, Republicans only 8. Nine of those Democrats Senate seats are in red states won by Donald Trump.
Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) Says No Fiscal Cliff Deal Tonight … “I think the parties are much farther apart than I hoped they’d be by now”
Deal or no deal … it would appear that there is no deal.
As reported at the Washington Post, according to Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) there is no deal as of yet and he would be shocked if there would be tonight as the two sides are further apart than he had hoped. They truly plan on taking this down to the last second. Of course one has to wonder how Congress can be having a fiscal cliff negotiation when none of what they are discussing reduces the US debt. It’s all just about tax increases and punishing the so-called rich.
Asked as he left a meeting of the Senate Democratic caucus whether a deal would be struck today, Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) replied: “No, I’d be shocked. I think the parties are much farther apart than I hoped they’d be by now, and that the country thought they’d be when negotiations started on Friday.”
Senator Joe Lieberman (CT-I) Says on “Fox News Sunday” US Needs a National Commission to Review all Factors that Play into Mass Murder Shootings
America, you you people actually understand why the Founding Fathers provided you Liberties and protections from the government?
This morning on FOX News Sunday, out-going Senator Joe Lieberman (CT-I) called for a national commission to be created to scrutinize all factors that go into mass murder shootings. Lieberman is calling for more than just looking at gun control and a ban on assault weapons. He is asking for a greater review than just guns, he wants a review of the mental health system and the role that violent video games and movies might play in shootings. However, that is not what Democrats are referring to … they strictly want to go after their lazy and liberal agenda of going after assault rifles. So what happens when the next mass shooting is done with multiple hand guns or a bomb?
The proposals are among the first to come from Congress in the wake of Friday’s school shooting in Newtown, Conn.
Sen. Joe Lieberman, a Connecticut independent, tells “Fox News Sunday” that a national commission could be used to scrutinize the nation’s gun laws, mental health system and the role that violent video games and movies might play in shootings.
I would say this … do not ever make a rash and knew-jerk reaction decision based on a tragic event. We take the same approach in our personal lives. Don’t think for one second that the liberals in Congress want all the guns. You give these big-government and intrusive progressives an inch and they will take everything.
Final question … so say there is an assault weapons ban and then we have another school shooting where only hand guns are used. You have now provided the precedent for the government to take away the hand guns as well.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Could WWE nation provide the Nutmeg State with their first female US Senator ever?
Linda McMahon, the former WWE CEO, gave fellow GOP’er a smack down at the Republican state convention Friday night as she beat Christopher Shayes 730 to 389. However, the battle will continue against her rival Shayes until the Connecticut August primary. McMahon said she intends to focus her campaign on Chris Murphy, the Democrats’ endorsed candidate, but will also continue to target Shays. “Chris Murphy and Chris Shays have very similar voting records. The November election will be a battle royal for the retiring Joe Liberman’s US Senate seat.
Republican delegates at their state convention Friday night once again put their faith in U.S. Senate candidate Linda McMahon, although her contentious battle with rival Christopher Shays will continue until a mid-August primary.
McMahon, the former CEO of WWE, received 60.4 percent of the vote. Shays netted 32.2 percent, easily meeting the threshold — 15 percent of the total — to force a primary.
Linda McMahon said following her overwhelming victory:
“We’re going to send the first woman senator to Washington in the history of Connecticut,” she said in the speech that she said she would have made from the podium. “Connecticut, we’re tired of waiting.”
“We know our economy is not working because Americans are not working,” McMahon said. “We are going to move Washington out of the doldrums that it’s in. … We are going to get people back to work and get our economy stimulated.”

Grim future for Democrats in the US Senate …
Charlie Cook of the famed political Cook Report states that Democrats have a tough row to hoe in 2012 and 2014 in the US Senate. With the large amount of seats that Democrats have to defend in 2012 and 2014, holding power in the Senate is pretty much a lost cause. Presently, Democrats have control of the Senate 53 – 47. In 2012 Democrats have to defend 23 seats (21 Democrats & 2 Independents who caucus with Dems) while Republicans only have to defend 10. In 2014, Democrats have to defend 20 seats, while the GOP only has to defend 13.
US Senate Democrats seats up for election in 2012. We would say that there is a bulls-eye on some of the following seats, but that would be uncivil.
