So why (pray tell), would any Democrat, especially one who was altogether screwed over by the lying, scheming, dirty, sleazy, scummy actions of the Bush crime family, be not only supportive of the unjustified war which we all know Bush rushed into with fabricated intelligence, but also supportive of Bush himself?
Not a one-issue referendum
Some out there would like to make you think that this election was all about the war... er... conflict in Iraq. Clearly that was a major factor as Joe Lieberman had been adamantly supportive of Bush's unpopular (not "war" but) conquest-of-a-sovereign-nation that most Americans believe was unjustified. However, I believe it was much more than just the conflict in Iraq that swung a majority of Democrats in Connecticut against their own incumbent Democratic Senator.
Has the Democratic party been hijacked by the radical left wing?
This is the spin that the Republicans will be putting on this particular election race - that the Democratic party has been hijacked by the Michael Moore-loving, liberal, McGovernite radicals who hate America. And unfortunately, some ignorant Rush Limbaugh/Bill O'Reilly listeners might actually believe that and leave it at that.
The truth is that this election is a referendum against the neo-con agenda. I hope the other incumbents in Washington take note. Don't tell me I'm unpatriotic and hate America when I speak out against my government. Don't tell me in a time of war I have to rally behind my president when I believe (along with the vast majority of the country) that he's making the absolute wrong decisions and leading us in the absolute wrong direction. And don't tell me to live in fear and that the neo-cons are keeping me safe, while I can plainly see violence & conflict escalating all over the world.
Neo-cons take note. It's time YOU live in fear!
