Krugman cites Lieberman's continued support of the Iraq war and his rosy optimism about it, his hueing to Republican Social Security talking points during Bush's failed efforts to set up "private accounts," his support for intervention in the Terri Schiavo congressional debacle...remember all those gems? Well if ya don't, Krugman's laid it all bare in a national column to remind everyone.
Joe's "moderation" has meant he's been offside with his party, for the most part. And Krugman delivers a hearty blow with this reminder:
And let's not forget that Mr. Lieberman showed far more outrage over Bill Clinton's personal life than he has ever shown over Mr. Bush's catastrophic failures as commander in chief.Yeah, Joementum has a bit of a job ahead of him. Turn on the Democrat partisan thrust blasters from now 'till primary day. Should be interesting to watch from here on in.
