Senator Joe Lieberman calls for special counsel in White House security leak case: video

Sen Joe Lieberman won’t make many friends in his party, if he had any left. But then he’s a lame duck and my guess is he is just speaking from the heart. Good for him. On Fox News Sunday the senior Senator from Connecticut told Chris Wallace the only way to avoid an appearance of conflict or bias is to call for a special counsel. But there’s more.

He also calls on the President to consent to an under oath interrogation by the Feds.

    Zero under oath?? Betcha his fingers will be crossed.

    Joe’s right, but it will never happen. I’m not at all certain that Holder will ever be put in his place either. Issa has been used like a bar of soap. This presidency has an unnatural ability to circle the wagons and fend off any and all who are not in lock-step with the program.? Let’s hope that the Supreme Court will knock him down a peg. I don’t see any other entity capable.
    As an aside, apart from the stupidity of the media in asking rhetorically if the job is too hard (poor O!) does the presidency have too much power? Has the balance swung too out of kilter?? ? ?

      And in the “fiddling while Rome burns” vein, The Boss has just completed his 100th round of golf of his presidency. I hear he still has a pernicious slice.?

    I hear that the ball magnetically rolls into the cup. If it doesn’t, the Secret Service has been instructed to kick it into the cup and arrest anyone who makes note of a bogey.

    It makes good political theater, and sound bites, to voice the right thing. Doing the right thing is quite another undertaking.
    It would border on the fantastic to have the Anointed One testify under oath. I’d have to list the questions I’d ask on a scroll . . . a very, very long scroll . . .

    Sen. Lieberman as usual is dreaming, as are some of the bloggers.

    • Dimsdale on June 18, 2012 at 10:48 pm

      Well, there are dreamers and then there are sheeple…

      It seems that pols that leave by choice make thoughtful lame ducks, while those “shown the door” by voters become spiteful little wretches. ?It should be an interesting lame duck session this year, no??

      Thank you Sammy22, I appreciate that.

    Go, Joe. You are my MAN!
