Joe is a loser...

Lieberman never served in the military. A spokesperson told The Hartford Courant in 1994 that Lieberman received an educational deferment from the Vietnam War draft when he was an undergraduate and law student from 1960-67. Upon graduating from law school at 25, Lieberman qualified for a family deferment as he was already married and had one child, Matt.[
he is a stooge of Israel and will use our boys blood to defend them...pos
In February 2007, Lieberman spoke before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in support of the confirmation of Sam Fox as ambassador to Belgium. Fox, a prominent Republican businessman and political donor, was a contributor to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth campaign in 2004. Fox is also reported to have donated to Lieberman's 2006 Senate campaign.[
Lieberman gathered stern criticism for speaking at an event hosted by the controversial pastor John Hagee, who has suggested that God sent Hitler to bring the Jews to Israel. Despite a 40,000-signature petition urging him not to go, Lieberman attended the event drawing rebuke from the J Street lobbying group. In comparing Moses to Hagee, Lieberman admitted that Hagee made hurtful and offensive comments, but stated that "Even Moses fell short of God's expectations."
