King had an interesting take on the Connecticut Democratic primary last night. When Mejias brings up the fact that King is as much a Bush-Iraq supporter as Lieberman is, King tells Newsday "fortunately, the Third District is not composed of the left-wing bigots who went after Joe Lieberman."
Hmm.. "left-wing bigots."
What exactly is King implying here?
Of course the Democratic voters in a Democratic primary would be pretty much "left-wing" but what is with the "BIGOTS"???
Is King suggesting that Lieberman lost was because he is jewish?
In the 3rd CD which voted overwhelmingly for Bill Clinton and Al Gore, King had best be careful. The scare tactics of 9/11 won't work anymore.
King tries to use it in the Newsday article by saying "Unlike the left wing of his party, Joe Lieberman stands for a strong national defense. The attacks against him have been disgraceful."
Isn't it the "left-wing" of the party that pushed for more homeland security money and King voted against the increase.
Maybe by "strong national defense," King means the Bush-Iraq War. He won't say it of course.
On Long Island, in the 3rd Congressional District just like all across the nation, the American people are opposed to Bushs misadventure in Iraq.
King has tied his horse to Bush with Iraq and should expect to feel the consequences. Mainstream america opposes Bush and his policies. King supports them.
King is getting his marching orders/talking points from GOP head Ken Mehlman
"Ken Mehlman, the Republican National Committee chairman, is planning to give a speech in Columbus, Ohio this morning in which he will use Mr. Lamont’s victory to portray Democrats as a party weak on national defense, and his affiliation with blogs to present the Democrats as captive to the extreme wing of the party, Republican aides said.
