Barack Obama has some stern words for Joe Lieberman, leading him off the Senate floor
After publicly being taken to the woodshed by presumptive Democrat Presidential nominee Barack Obama on the floor of the U.S. Senate yesterday, it is NOW reported that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid also had words with Joe Lieberman, the Independent, former Democrat Senator from Connecticut.
In addition to the talking-to that Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, gave Sen. Joe Lieberman, Ind-Conn., yesterday for his role as a supporter of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the Senate Majority leader chatted last night with the Connecticut senator, who caucuses with the Democrats but has endorsed McCain.
Reid told reporters today, per ABC News’ Z. Byron Wolf, that “I’ve had conversations with Lieberman at some length. I’m not going to discuss the conversations here. But I think the discussions he had with Obama yesterday and the discussions he had with me yesterday were fruitful. We’ll let the future decide what it’s going to be, but I’m not about to threaten anybody.”
Lieberman should tell Obama, Reid, Durbin and the rest of those clowns in the Senate to “go to hell.” Joe was elected as an Independent after the Democrat LEFT pushed Ned Lamont to a win in the Connecticut Democrat primary.
Harry Reid continues to be Lieberman’s BITCH for now but with the Democrats on track to add more Senate seats this November, Joe might as well leave NOW rather than be pushed out later.
Watch Joe Lieberman switch caucus sides in the immediate future.
