I can see how the Dems in the Senate can have a say since they appointed him to Homeland Security, but how can the CT Dems have a say in anything? They kicked him out replacing him with Lamont. There is an (I) not a (D) in front of his name.

Has anyone started a petition to recall Chris Dodd. I won't even call him senator. He needs to be removed before the next election. He sits on important committees and his input is no longer needed or wanted after the financial disaster he helped create.

This is once again another example of our rights being taken away from us. We live in a free country and now one of our senators is going to be punished by his own party for supporting the man he feels would have done the job best, and clearly had the best interest of the American people in mind. Joe Lieberman is a great man and his party members should be ashamed of themselves.

So THIS is what the CT Dems are busying themsleves with???!!! A vendetta-based, and baseless, witch hunt at just such a cross roads?!

Joe's an INDEPENDENT. Joe has a heck of a record of FOLLOWING HIS CONSCIENCE.

Wake up you dingbats Dems in the CT legislature. And stop following the herd. You deeply disrespect all of us CT residents by this type of innanity.

Joe: Keep the faith, and keep on doing your thing. You have huge support.

While I do not agree on many issues w/ Joe L. I so much more respect his style and integrity than so many others in the CT legislature and elected Dems & Republicans elsewhere.

These Dems in CT ought be ashamed of themsleves. How petty & utterly stupid. not to mention on heck of a waste of the CT taxpayer's $$!!

Censuring Senator Lieberman for helping his friend John McCain and his stance on the Iraq War is wrong. Has it come to the point now where politics is poisoned to the extent one cannot stand up for personal beliefs on occasion during a 20 year career in the U.S. Senate? The intollerant Democrats that want this censure are part of the problem with partisan politics today. Is it not good enough that Joe Lieberman votes along with his party in roughly 9 out of every 10 votes?

It used to be that individual ideas and standing up for what one believes in was respected. Have we become so extreme that soon it will be acceptable to censor thought?

Agree - spoken like a true moderate....something the Democrat Party no longer can be (moderate).

These far left partisam Democrats forget that the majority of us voted Joe in, not their wealthy Ned Lamont. In essense, these arrogant Demcrats are censuring the majory of voters too - not too bright.

I'm sure the Republicans want the censure too, after all, they would love for Joe to come over to them and I wouldn't blame Senator Lieberman one bit if he grows tired of the loons and switches to the Republican party.

Yes when will Dodd, Frank, and Rangel be brought up on charges? This Rangel character didn't know he had to pay taxes on his rental income...hey, who knew? So much for Pelosi having the most ethical House!

If this is all the CT Dems have to worry about, then I would be happy to provide them with a to-do list of things that are more important to the country right now. I thought we were looking forward to hope, change and unity. This looks like more of the same.

Let's all remind the CT Democratic Party that it was THEM that kicked Joe to the curb in his last election, and WE, the citizens of CT, that ELECTED him in spite of that. The CT Democratic Party should wake up. Just because the Democrats won strong this past November doesn't mean the citizens will tolerate this vindictive and foolish nonsense.

People in the State of Connecticut and The U.S. have lost faith in their government and elected officials.
No one in federal, state or local government is any longer held accountable for their actions. The
Connecticut Democratic Party will give Joe another slap on the wrist and nothing more will come of it.
VOTERS UNITE, DUMP JOE IN 2012 + DODD
IN 2010! If Democats don't offer an acceptable alternative to Lieberman or Dodd, then I'm voting Republican or Independent. LET THE REVOLUTION BEGIN!

Ahhh my friend, you are clearly the voice of reason on this forum! My family are old proud Connecticut Yankees over 200 years and at hearing this news, I am sorry to say, I am not very proud of my home state. How Dodd gets a pass and we focus all our wrath on Joe is just amazing. I could see if they hauled them both up to be publicly flogged, now that would at least be fair. This course of action is clearly sad and disheartening.

I could not agree with you more! They attack Joe, yet leave Chris "Countrywide" Dodd alone. How pathetic.
