The bi-partisan theme

This is what Sen. Joe said today on the Meet the Press. Sunday, Nov.12, 2006

SEN. LIEBERMAN:" I’m going to be an optimist, and take some encouragement from the fact that this was an election in which, in the House and Senate, Democrats came to the majority of both chambers by electing moderates mostly. This was an election that might be called the return of the center of American politics. And I think that my colleagues and leaders in the Democratic caucus get that. The fact is that this was not a major realignment election in my opinion. This was the voters in Connecticut and elsewhere saying, “We, we, we’re, we, we’re disappointed with the Republicans. We want to give the Democrats a chance.” But I believe that the American people are considering both major political parties to be in a kind of probation, because they’re, they’re understandably angry that Washington is dominated too much by partisan political games, and not enough by problem solving and patriotism, which means put the country and your state first."

Lets see, the voters are angry at Washington because of too much partisan political games.
This from Lieberman who protected the corporate community during the Enron scandal, supported Bush and the war. and was, until recently, a leader of the Democratic Leadership Council.

Most reasonable polls show that voters are angry at the Republicans for failing at the war and for corruption in office. Lieberman protects the war and the corruption. I guess that is why he sees the problem as partisan games.
