A Snake In The Grass

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.

Granny, great minds think alike. :) We're on the same wave length when it comes to Joe Lieberman. He's never told a lie he didn't like.

How anyone could continue to support this con artist is beyond me. It's not that his past is not checkered with all sorts of political machinations.

Yet, like the perfect con artist that he is, people still believe there's something of value hiding underneath that shell he keeps shuffling around, as suckers put down their money, and their trust, betting that this time they'll score, and score big

Lieberman is a snake for sure. I've known it pretty much since he won his election with the support of the republicans. What I haven't understood is why the Dems didn't demote him. As in: with friends like Lieberman you don't need enemies. He's since behaved like an enemy.

Granny: "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."

Moreover, many whites enjoy his remarks. Makes them feel good. Wish they could have said it themselves on national radio.

I wish there was a stock market against such bigoted behavior and thinking. I'd invest in an eye blink. Just letting the thoughts ramble.

BD: "Yet, like the perfect con artist that he is, people still believe there's something of value hiding underneath that shell he keeps shuffling around"

He has the con skill all right. I wish there was a med to cure people of the 'Lieberman has value' mania.

And, a side thought. Joe used to be progressive along the lines of helping those without riches. Seems like now that he won with the help of the Republicans, he's flipped. Just an observation; he probably would have supported a robust public option in an earlier portion of his life.

I can't say that I feel sorry for Obama or the Democrats since Lieberman should have been crushed like the cockroach he was right after the election and stripped of any and all of his leadership positions because the Democrats regardless if there were 70 of them wouldn't be able to round of 60 votes for cloture. Democrats just won't work together.

Furthermore if Obama had been heavy-handed with Lieberman it would have given the Republicans pause if they were trying to attack him. But unfortunately Obama believes that the Republicans still want to play bipartisan bridge while they are undermining Obama and his agenda a little more each day.*sigh*

Yup, and we both know that shell game will get them every time.


President Obama is doing better than MSM tries to paint him as doing. Don't forget they were against him being in the White House from the get go. He has done more in nine months than some have have did in 4 years. They just don't highlight his accomplishments. Another thing, he always sits back and lets them hang themselves but he usually comes out on top whenever he decides to check them.


I feel ya.

I watched the President as he saluted the dead soldier's, he is proving to be a better Man as well as a Great President!

The media cannot deal with the fact, that a Black man has come forth and made the WHITE MAN look PITIFUL! the President is doing thing's that BUSH or CLINTON could have done, but, wouldn't, he is letting his LIGHT SHINE! and those that oppose him, should hide their face in SHAME!

Roderick, what you said will not hold water! the President is not being under minded, LIEBERMAN will answer to GOD for his behavior, this man is a JEW! and yet, he is trying to deprive God's people from receiving HELP!

Lieberman represent's all the JUDAS in the Democratic Party! he is not alone, for if any Democrat will NOT SUPPORT the Health Care Bill, God will deal with them MIGHTILY! and they should be! what good are these people to the DEMOCRATIC PARTY? why do we need them? the DEMOCRAT'S are suppose to FIGHT for the LEAST of THOSE! and we have all of these JUDAS roaming around trying to Sabotage the PRESIDENT! NOT SO!
