Hillary, a Lieberman Democrat?

I have noticed that Hillary Clinton is really quite right wing, from her religion "The Fellowship" whom many refer to as a "right wing cult," to supporting Bush tax cuts.

Irregular Goods said it well in this article:

Hillary Clinton is a Lieberman Democrat
Senator Clinton veers toward the right wing

Upon examination, Hillary Clinton turns out not to be what her supporters wish she would be. Increasingly, her political stances are moving toward the right. It started with support for Bush's tax cuts for the rich, then into Clinton's vote in favor of the Patriot Act, though she never even read the legislation before voting on it. Then, of course, there was Hillary Clinton's support for the invasion and occupation of Iraq. Senator Clinton didn't just support the Iraq War at the beginning. She still supports it, and still refuses to admit that she made the wrong choice. Since that pro-war vote, Hillary Clinton has gone sliding further and further to the right, supporting initiatives to mix religion and government, supporting Pro-Life candidates, and even voting for a law to end free speech as we know it by making flag burning a crime. Time and time again, Hillary Clinton has failed to stand up to George W. Bush. When Russ Feingold called for the censure of George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton left him hanging.
If all this doesn't convince you that Hillary Clinton is becoming more and more like a right wing Republican with every passing year, consider this: Senator Clinton is now defending Joseph Lieberman. In fact, Hillary Clinton isn't just defending Lieberman, she is helping Lieberman defeat a true progressive Democrat, Ned Lamont.

(Every head of the CIA has been a Knight of Malta, a secret army who report to the Pope and who only answer to the Pope. Blackwater call themselves Knights of Malta. The Knights of Malta helped the Vatican run a NAZI Rat line durin WWII that aided and abetted the escape of Nazi war criminals, who the CIA enlisted to fight communism, in spite of the fact that the communists won the war on the Eastern front and liberated most of the Nazi Concentration camps. )

Ned Lamont is (was) running for United States Senate in the Democratic Primary against Joseph Lieberman because of Lieberman's repeated cooperation with the worst of the Republicans' right wing agenda. While the Republicans have been lying to America, running up record debts, cutting away our civil liberties, and selling out the basic needs of American citizens, Senator Lieberman has been lecturing Democrats that we need to be friendly to Republican ideas, and we should not contradict George W. Bush. Lieberman has actually suggested that criticizing President Bush is unpatriotic. He's said that Americans do not have the right to full religious liberty. He's supported George W. Bush almost every step of the way.
Hillary Clinton ought to be ashamed to be seen in the same company as Joseph Lieberman. But, she isn't. In fact, Senator Clinton has written a letter to the delegates of the Connecticut Democratic Committee, urging them to support Senator Lieberman, and help defeat progressive Ned Lamont.
The letter contains many false statements. For example, Senator Clinton claims that " Joe Lieberman fought tooth and nail to protect the guarantee of Social Security that this country has honored for seven decades to its senior citizens." The truth is that Senator Lieberman tried to help George W. Bush's attacks on Social Security until they were all but certainly doomed. During the State of the Union Address, when President Bush announced his plan to destroy Social Security as we know it, Joseph Lieberman was one of only two to stand up and applaud. That's right - Senator Lieberman actually applauded the destruction of Social Security.
Perhaps you are tempted to excuse Hillary Clinton's support of Joseph Lieberman as some kind of loyalty. One Democrat in the Senate is obligated to campaign for other Democrats in the Senate, you might say.
Well, if that were your defense of Clinton's conduct, then you'd have to explain why she is continuing to support Joseph Lieberman even though Lieberman has said that he will abandon the Democratic Party and run against Ned Lamont as an independent if Lamont wins the Democratic primary. If Joseph Lieberman won't be loyal to the Democratic Party, and regularly rejects basic Democratic Party values, why should Democrats be loyal to Lieberman?


Clinton has shown the same kind of party loyalty as Lieberman, seemingly willing to have a Hitlerian scorched earth policy of taking down the entire party with her if she cannot have the nomination. She has implied that only John McCain and she have the qualifications to be Commander in Chief. If those qualifications include a boot licking adherence to Bush policy to the extent of practicing the same sick, right wing religion then there is no change with Hillary, just a female manikin, new window dressing for the latest in facsist fashion.
