With us on everything but the war

Barack Obama backed Joe Lieberman for re-election over Ned Lamont.

He fought like a wild animal to keep Lieberman in the Democratic caucus even after the evil, killer clown spoke at the Republican convention and campaigned for John McCain.

Nice to see that Lieberman is so loyal and supportive of the Democrats who have supported him.

Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) said Tuesday that he’d back a GOP filibuster of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s health care reform bill.

Lieberman, who caucuses with Democrats and is positioning himself as a fiscal hawk on the issue, said he opposes any health care bill that includes a government-run insurance program — even if it includes a provision allowing states to opt out of the program, as Reid has said the Senate bill will.

"We're trying to do too much at once," Lieberman said. “To put this government-created insurance company on top of everything else is just asking for trouble for the taxpayers, for the premium payers and for the national debt. I don’t think we need it now."
What does "trying to do too much at once" even mean?

Thanks a lot, Connecticut.
