Lieberman asked to resign from his own party

Dr. John Orman, Chairman of the Connecticut For Lieberman party has issued this press release calling on Sen. Joe Lieberman to resign:
“CFL Chair Calls for Lieberman to Resign over Remarks”

The Connecticut for Lieberman Party Chair, Dr. John Orman, called on Senator Joseph Lieberman to resign from the U.S. Senate for his irresponsible remarks that called for the U.S. to unilaterally bomb Iran. Orman said, “He has crossed the line. He no longer represents the CFL and he no longer represents the views of the citizens of Connecticut. His unilateral war mongering could lead to a new World War III.” Orman asked that Lieberman immediately resign his seat and that Governor Rell appoint Ms. Susan Henshaw, the Secretary of the Connecticut for Lieberman Party to Lieberman’s seat. Orman said the Governor should appoint someone from the party that elected Lieberman, the CFL and Henshaw would become the first female U.S. Senator from Connecticut. Orman said, “Remember, as Senator Lieberman likes to say, no one in Connecticut wants to start World War III more than Joe Lieberman.”

(WTNH) _ The Connecticut for Lieberman Party is calling on Senator Joseph Lieberman to resign from the U.S. Senate following his remarks made Sunday on CBS' Face the Nation regarding military action against Iran.

Lieberman said on the national television program that, "we've got to be prepared to take aggressive military action against the Iranians."

The Connecticut for Lieberman Chair, Dr. John Orman, called for Lieberman's resignation saying that he "crossed the line" and "no longer represents the views of the citizens of Connecticut."

Orman, a longtime critic of Lieberman, took control of the minority party back in January.

And of course if Sue becomes Senator, Lorenzo Sunflower takes over as Secretary of CfL.

What can we do to back this? Should we bombard Harry Reid's office, Lieberman's office or Rell's?? This guy has GOT to go, and there must be a way to do it.

Not only has he been elected but John Orman is a joke and should just go away and crawl into a hole somewhere. This is typical bullshit that wastes time and does nothing. BTW what he said was we must be prepared for a military attack, and we should at all times be prepared for a military attack especially against a country currently working on building a nuclear arsenal with a leader who has publicly said he wants to blow up the US and is also causing a good share of the problems within Iraq with sending over Iranian military regulars to fight and arming up the militias so that the problems continue to get worse in Iraq. Of course we don't hear about any of the facts because the bullshit artists take over the news. This is a waste of time, and bob you can not impeach someone who has not broken any laws. Why don't you and the rest of the wimps go to Canada and leave this country for those with balls.

We can't be ready for war with Iran because our military is spread too thin with the two wars Joey's been leading the pep squad to keep inflamed.
If Holy Joe did want to be the center of ridicule, he shouldn't have treated his fellow citizens with such disdain and contempt.
If he has not broken any laws, than I look forward to seeing the accounting for his campaign slush fund. But, no, Holy Joe and his LOBBYIST wife are not accountable to the citizens to pretend to represent.
It doesn't take balls to stand up and cheer on the men in power -- it take balls to stand up and speak truth to power.
Talk about having too much time on your hands, go over to the winger website where you can blow Joey with the rest.

1. you are extremely childish and it shows in your political views

2. In regards to our army being stretched too thin. Americans always step up and defend when our country is a risk and theres always the draft

3. It looks like you are desperate when you mention the "slush fund". There is very little evidence to suggest there was one but even so Ned Lamont started the spending war with his hateful ads sponsored by his piggy bank

4. It does take balls to stand up to your political party when their trying to taken over by loons

All in all you need to read up on what has been going on Iran and the Middle East for the past 50 years. It might shed some light on your life
