Liberals are so incensed at Connecticut Senator Joe Liberman's refusal to vote for ObamaCare, that they have taken to attacking his wife, who works for a prominent breast cancer organization. Their ad hominem assaults and wild speculation about the Senator's supposedly evil motives reveal their hypocrisy when it comes to political centrists, and their desperation concerning health care legislation.Health care reform isn't the No. 1 priority in this country, jobs are. Indeed, take a minute to dig beyond the liberal propaganda and you'll find that the U.S. already has one of the best healthcare systems in the world. But if you're on the Left, the fact that more and more Americans are having a hard time putting food their tables matters little when you have a radically leftist agenda to fulfill. Joe Lieberman, Al Gore's choice for running mate only 9 years ago, is now being demonized by the Left for daring to look out for Americans all the while refusing to stay quiet and just jump on board with Barry's radical vision of a liberal utopia. I say keep at it Joe! The more angry they get, the more we know you're doing something right.
At Huffington Post, FireDogLake founder and breast cancer survivor Jane Hamsher revealed that her request to the Susan G. Komen foundation that money raised to find a cure not be used to pay Mrs. Lieberman's salary went unheeded. Hamsher went on to accuse the Lieberman couple of conspiring to sink health care reform in order to line their own pockets.Hamsher accuses Mrs. Lieberman using "her association with her husband the Senator ... in order to secure these lucrative positions and advance the interests of her clients" at a lobbying firm for which she is a consultant. This contention, Hamsher claims, is "unquestionable," though she offers no evidence to support the accusation, other than speculation about the couple's income.
