Lieberman rips Romney and Obama for high negativity in the campaign

Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman slammed the Obama and Romney campaigns Tuesday for engaging in what he considers record-high negativity during this year’s presidential race.

Mr. Lieberman, an independent former Democrat, made his comments on the same day that a pro-Obama political action committee debuted an ad that features a former steelworker linking Bain Capital’s closure of his plant to his wife’s death from cancer.

The senator, who will retire at the end of this year, challenged both candidates to shift their focus toward laying out their own plans for the country and argued that increasing divisiveness in the campaign is only working to shake voter’s confidence in their nation and its government.

“It’s exactly the opposite of what our country needs,” he said on CNN’s “Starting Point.” “Part of what our country needs now is a healthy dose of vision of what both of these candidates will do if they get elected, instead of trying to scare us into how terrible the other one [is].”

Not this again...

Would you date a conservative?

I know most DUers are liberals and political junkies. But some people here have friends and relatives who are to the right.
My question is would you ever date someone who was a Republican or a conservative, even if you liked pretty much everything else about them?

No More Moderates?

I was watching Hairball on MSNBC today, and Tweety had on Michael Steal and Michael Schmerchonish. Schmerconish said that while most voters (supposedly) are moderates, there are becoming fewer moderates in office from either party. He said the G0Pee has moved rightward, while the Dems have moved leftward.
Now my question is how has the Democratic party moved to the left? I keep hearing pundits saying that both parties are becoming polarized, but I don't see how Democrats have really moved leftward. For example, while I think he is a good president overall and far superior to Mitt R0bme, Obama has mostly been governing as a moderate. If the Democrats have truly moved further to the left and there are a lack of moderates in the party, wouldn't we see them proposing things like marijuana legalization nationwide, gun control, universal health care, election reform, and a return to Eisenhower-era taxes?
Anyway, thanks for reading this. I just wanted to vent this out because it was driving me nuts.
