In the bible, the story of Adam and Eve tells how death and sin came into the world by the way of a snake. Adam had left for a minute and Eve was alone by herself. Just goes to show if you leave your mate alone too long some snake will come along and entertain them. However, that is not what this topic is about. Well, it does have something to do with snakes though.
Some snakes, whoops, I meant people you just cannot trust. Like that old adage, "If a snake bites you once, you don't put them in your busom, because they'll turn around and bite you again. That is one thing the President's mother and grandparents forgot to teach him. Or maybe, they thought that he would be able to avoid them by just being a nice guy. I wish I could have tipped them off that snakes have a strong attraction for nice guys. In addition, one more thing, they should have taught him is that everyone that grins in your face is not a friend. Evidently, he wasn't paying attention to his black Obama mommas because that is something most black mothers teach their children at least mine did because that is a part of survival techniques in a world that sometimes can be cruel and cold.
Joe Lieberman is not a friend to the Democrats period. Nah, he is more like a Benedict Arnold or to put it plain and simple "a snake in the grass" and he cannot be trusted in any shape, form, or fashion. All one has to do is look back on some of his past moves. When Lieberman was running for re-election not too many Democrats came out cheerleading for him, but President Obama did. How did he re-pay President Obama? By campaigning for Senator John McCain against President Obama and he made some very disturbing remarks against President Obama. When some Democrats wanted him to be stripped of his chairmanship over Homeland Security, President Obama saved his behind and let him keep his position. How did he pay President Obama back? By going along with Fox We Make Up News own Glen Beck's insane, juvenile conspiracy theory suggesting an investigation of this administration's czars. Not only that, now he has come out to say that he will vote with the Republicans for a filibuster. Besides, he is a bigot in disguise and why no one has picked up on that is beyond me.
Enough is enough! Joe Lieberman has a history of backstabbing--"Voting against Democratic filibusters, trying to block the health care bill twice, voted for Gonzales, defended privatization of Social security, quit the Democratic party, cheerleading for the war in Iraq, campaigning for John McCain, implied President Obama was a Muslim, defended John Hagee's anti-semitic, was all for waterboarding, continues to support war in Iraq, called President Obama a Marxist, said 60 Democratic vote dangerous, and now he is against public option." ~~ Rachel Weiner, Huffingtonpost~~
Had I been on the advising team for the President, Lieberman would have been kicked to the curve when he campaigned against him. And he should have been stripped of his position as chairman a long time ago because he means the Democratic party no good and is liken to a spy for the GOP party. I believe in keeping my friends close and my enemies even closer but giving them a position to help do me a job. Nope! I don't think so! At this point he needs to be demoted and not awarded any type of position but plain ole Senator until the next elections come around.
Lieberman won't be coming back on Capitol Hill after the next election and he knows that. Therefore, he doesn't care what the people think, he is in cahoots with the Insurance Industry and corporations. The people are on to him and see him as a backstabbing snake that cannot be trusted. Maybe, some big corporation like Aetna has plans to hire him when his term is up since that is whose team he is on. However, whatever corporation hires him, they'd better keep a close eye on him. Yet and still, he would make a good Fox employee because they practice deception and he would fit right in with those folks.
Then there is Rush Limbaugh who called President Obama a boy on the sly, which is what whites used to call black grown men in the past. It is a derogatory insult towards black men. Apparently, Rush thinks that grown men smoke cigars or are addicted to drugs or his obesity or spouting out racist remarks, and B.S all day long is a qualifier for manhood. Evidently, reaching the age of 21 years old and older is not in his book. That is if you happen to be black. Why does Rush make racial derogatory remarks like that on a national radio? Because he knows he can get away with and that many whites will rush to his defense if someone calls him on it. If that wasn't so, he wouldn't do it, but then that's post-racial America for you.
