No matter how arrogant the Democrats get, Senator Joe Lieberman, an independent after his party decided he wasn’t extreme-enough to the left and tried to oust him for an even wackier liberal, kept his former party honest this weekend, calling an effort to push through health care reform a mistake.
If the so-called “public option” is forced through, Lieberman said, “that the public is either opposed to, or of very, very passionate mixed minds about” would be bad “for the system. Frankly, it won’t be good for the Obama presidency. He has got other fights to fight.”
Like getting a couple million into the budget for some pond filters at the White House, perhaps? Or trying to re-con people into re-electing him in 2012?
