I am so disappointed in Joe Lieberman. For a long time I gave him the benefit of the doubt. I have a soft spot in my heart for politicians who are not afraid to speak out against what the rest of their party is doing if they do not agree. I have a soft spot for Joe L. because he is was brave enough to support the Iraq was (even though I didn't) when he was one of the few Democrats did. I have a soft spot for Joe because he reached out across the aisle to support John McCain. I have a soft spot in my heart for John McCain too, sometimes. (And some similar disappointment)
Joe left the Democrats high and dry, and I didn't care too much. But now, he's just gone too far. This is Joe's quote about the Public Option for health insurance.
“It doesn’t help one poor person get insurance who doesn’t have it now. ………”
It’s like he’s speaking another language because what he says makes no sense in English. How can making insurance available to everyone not give insurance to 1 poor person. It makes no sense what-so-ever. It’s like he is saying if we paint white lines on the roads not one driver will know which side of the road they are supposed to be driving on.
