For years Democrats have complained that President Bush and Republicans failed to “reach across the aisle” and were too “partisan” and “divisive” in imposing their agenda on the nation.
But the treatment of Sen. Joseph Lieberman — the Democrat Party’s nominee for Vice President just four years ago – by his Democratic colleagues sends the message that bi-partisanship is a one-way street.
Lieberman, because of his support for the Iraq war, is a strong supporter of Sen. John McCain and has been very critical of Sen. Barack Obama. Lieberman was elected as an Independent, but caucuses with the Democrats — which of late has been a bit uncomfortable.
Just another reminder that for Democrats, bi-partisanship is when Republicans cross over and do what Democrats want. But a Democrat helping a Republican — that is treason.
