Libyan “NO-FLY” Faux-Humanitarian Intervention Fails -- Deservedly -- 3 Amoral Amigos Incensed & Insistent on FULL OUT BOMBING!
(562 Obama-dumping days until 2012 election-Hugh's Obama's Scandals List)
So the disasters of the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars are not enough for America.
And calling out for the assassination of a legitimate sovereign head of a country and encouraging civil war bloodbaths from our senior US Senators has gotten as American as apple pie! The blood-letting mood begun earlier by a craven corporate media and a mendacious administration demonizing Gaddafi and myopically generalizing and romanticizing the strange and troubling rebellion coalition challenging him. Once again in American media, profound truth black outs, this time of barbaric racist violence against non-Libyan Africans wrongly accused of being mercenaries.

Senate HCR Bill: Anti-Women, -Immigrants, -Unions, -Working/Middle Classes, -Patients, oh, and ... Anti-Anti Trust!
So let's examine the Senate bill, that Obama heavily PREFERS, that faux-progressives are touting as worthy of progressive support and worthy of loyal cronyism against the hypocritical corporatist Republicans and irrationally anti-government instead of anti-corporate teabaggers. (That is a massive amount of BLIND cronyism they are calling on.):
The Senate bill depends on healthcare funding from middle class with excise taxes on comprehensive plans, sabotaging their sustainability.
The Senate bill offers no public option, not even a toehold. Read more about Senate HCR Bill: Anti-Women, -Immigrants, -Unions, -Working/Middle Classes, -Patients, oh, and ... Anti-Anti Trust!
Quite a list here of who he's meeting with and learning from, and those supposedly "sensible Republicans" are far outnumbered by the usual warmongering criminal ones -- but all is not lost: he's actually read 2 whole books by non-warmongers! (but not spoken to them or met with them or asked them for advice)
... Besides reaching out to Mr. Scowcroft, Mr. Obama has also called former Secretary of State George P. Shultz, a Reagan administration official who is known in some foreign policy circles as the father of the Bush doctrine because of his advocacy of preventive war. It is unclear what the two men talked about.
Contributions from associates and friends of now-indicted garbage executive James Galante to the 2004 presidential campaign of U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman have sparked the interest of federal investigators.
Lieberman's bid for the White House took in at least $14,000 from Galante, his associates and their relatives in the fall of 2003, according to a Courant review of campaign records.

Incivility in American Politics: Is the U.S. at Risk for Disaster in Political Discourse? Are Voters Fed Up?
April 25, 2007
Let's begin a pool, shall we? How long before Joe takes the plunge and joins his fellow warmongers in truth as well as deed?
When it's good for Joe, of course. E&P:
"Independent" Sen. Joe Liebeman receives a mini-profile [in next week's Time] titled "What Joe Wants," a key question since he is "the Senate's one-man tipping point." Republicans, the magazine says, are "courting him" and Lieberman "has been indulging in some fairly immodest poltical footsie."
Ewwwwww! [Let me pause a moment to get that picture out of my mind. There.] Read more about So when will Lieberman betray Connecticut voters and cross the aisle?
Chertoff better not eat in any black-owned restaurants in NOLA. Really, the arrogance of these people is stunning at times. It wouldn't surprise me if some overworked, low-level FEMA employee just shot him, the next time he got out of a
taxpayer funded hookermobile car.

That's a lot of money to leave on a lot of dressers, wouldn't you say?
Lieberman really is a Republican, isn't he?
Because that amount of petty cash is also illegal. Nice. Read more about Ho Lieberman spent $400,000 in "petty cash" in 12 days?
Oh, joy. Look whoâ€™s in the news again:
Sen. Joe Lieberman, the longtime Democratic senator from Connecticut running for re-election as an independent, says the party leadership has assured him he would keep his seniority if he returns to Congress.
So Lieberman loses the Democratic primary, then forms his own party and runs against the Democractic winner.
I'd say Joe's behavior is an exact match to the dictionary definition.
Sometimes the truth just doesn't sound "neutral."
And sometimes the truth hurts.
Joe, in this case. Sorry about that. Read more about Word of the day: Turncoat
A few days ago, our incumbent junior senator, Joe Lieberman, a former candidate for president and vice president of the United States, told reporters that he needed a few more days to formulate, and properly articulate, his position on the war in Iraq. He wouldnâ€™t be talking about it with them until then.
