Kiss of Death for Senator Dodd

jl3

Things just keep getting worse for U.S. Senator Chris Dodd. First, Quinnipiac revealed that only 33% of Connecticut voters approve of the job he is doing. The same poll showed that 50% of voters would prefer to vote for former U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons. Now, Connecticut Democrat Independent Democrat McCain supporter Democrat Joe Lieberman has voiced his strong support for Sen. Dodd.

“I’ve been there,” Lieberman said after a meeting on federal stimulus funding in Hartford, referring to Dodd’s situation. “It’s obviously been a tough couple of months for Chris, some of it unfair.

“But I’m convinced, based on what Chris Dodd has done for Connecticut and America, that he’ll be re-elected,” Lieberman said. “I think people will say, ‘Hey, we’ve got a good senator here. Let’s not lose him.'”

This is from the same Senator Lieberman who was not so long ago was a vocal champion of U.S. Senator John McCain.  The above photo is from Sacred Heart University in Fairfield on February 3, 2008.  That’s Sen. Lieberman at center stage with the Republican nominee for U.S. President, John McCain.

On September 4th of last year, the same Sen. Lieberman addressed the Connecticut delegation to the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis, MN.  He thanked the assembled delegates for being supportive even though he was subject to profuse criticism by his fellow Democrats.

Given that Sen. Lieberman spent so much of 2008 stumping for John McCain, his recent rebirth as a loyalist to Democratic causes has been comical.  One quickly realizes that the calendar at the Lieberman house does, in fact, stretch all the way into November 2012.

And in the land of great ironies, when the inevitable happens and Senator Lieberman heads out on the campaign trail for Senator Dodd, it is likely that he will end up opposite two of the gentlemen who stood on the stage with him that day in February – former U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons and U.S. Senator John McCain.

Sen. Dodd must be just tickled to have his support.

  1. Joe is everyone’s pal these days! Too bad no one likes him back.

    It’s amazing how little we hear about him these days. Is he actually doing anything at all in the senate?

    He’s rubberstamping the bills of a man he once hated.

  3. “It’s obviously been a tough couple of months for Chris, some of it unfair.”

    Look at that classic Lieberman doublespeak! By saying “some” of it is unfair, he’s obviously implying that some of it IS fair, and probably well-deserved. The thing about Lieberman is that he’s a very cagey speaker, and you often have to look at what he doesn’t say to get his real meaning.

    Boy, Lieberman sure does know how to hold a grudge!

    Chris Dodd needs to go. NOW. Sweetheart deals on his own mortgage and adding verbage for AIG is a disgrace to everyone in the USA, and its OUR job as voters in Connecticut to vote him out of office. Rob Simmons?? No, how about someone with a strong work ethic and respect… like Sam Caligiuri!
