Lieberman’s Days Are Numbered

Now this is what I’m talking about. Nancy Pelosi has gone on the record stating that Lieberman’s days as Chairman are numbered.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blasted Sen. Joe Lieberman today for making what she called “totally irresponsible” remarks about Democrat Barack Obama, which she warned could prompt Senate Democrats to strip him of his committee chairmanship.


“You’re right,” Pelosi said. “Joe Lieberman has said things that are totally irresponsible when it comes to Barack Obama. Here we have a leader for the future, really a great leader for the future and one that comes along only every now and then, and they know it so they have to undermine him. And one of their best weapons, of course, is someone who is considered by some to be a Democrat.”

Pelosi bluntly explained that Senate Democrats are leery of challenging Lieberman because his vote is crucial to maintaining the Democrats’ 51-49 majority in the Senate. But she warned that Lieberman’s top spot on the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee could be in jeopardy next year if the Democrats gain seats in the Senate in November.

“The Democrats in the Senate are in a tough spot. They have 51 votes. Joe Lieberman organizes with them,” she said. “In 85 days or something, they will have five more Democrats they won’t need him to make the majority. And it will be interesting to see what the leadership in the Senate, the Democratic leadership in the Senate, does at that point in terms of Joe Lieberman’s chairmanship of his committee.”

Pelosi also takes some Clinton supporters to task (which is sure to make waves), but as to turncoat Joe, this is as close as we’ve gotten to leaders in Congress saying that Lieberman’s days are numbered. His hideous comments regarding Obama not putting country first were particularly awful, and it seems that this may have been the last straw.
