He's a loser and a traitor. He has betrayed the trust of the Democratic party, as well as his constitutants.
He is an Independent and the democratic party betrayed him over his Iraq vote.

His betrayal came about when he became Independent, he abandoned the Democratic party and began siding with the right.
That's plain and simple enough even for you to understand.
He is what some would call a RINO, but has the (I) label to appear inconspicuous, he's really a righty. We (democrats) were really surprized that he didn't go full right, which was probably a political blunder on his part. The democratic party distrusts him more than we know. Who is even sure the right can trust him?

LOLOL Oh so that's how it happened?

Gee and all this time I though campaigning for McCain might have had something to do with it.

This is the REAL reason Lieberman is still around.

He's a hero, as long as he sticks to his guns.

The Americans want the Public option, which he said he was against, also it has more support in his home state than it does nationally.

The national party as well as pretty much all of the leaders backed Lieberman in the Primary....

What goes around, comes around. You may remember he had to run as an Independent because they threw their support to some millionaire with no political experience.

He didn't have to do anything, in fact in the vast majority of the country if you lose a Primary, you do not have the ability to run as an Independent.

No he is not. He has received money from Insurance companies.

To the tune of just under 1/2 million dollars.

He isn't doing what he's doing in the interest of Americans, it's for his own personal gain. Can't anyone see that?

He became Independent when the Democrat party refused to let him stay in the big tent. He ran as an Independent to keep his career in politics alive. He is identified as an Independent Democrat (ID-CT). (I know that is an oxymoron).

Is this plain and simple enough for even YOU to understand or should I attempt to break it down in even simplier terms?

During his re-election bid in 2006, he lost the Democratic Party primary election but won re-election in the general election as a third party candidate under the party label "Connecticut for Liberman." Lieberman has been officially listed in Senate records for the 110th and 111th as an "Independent Democrat".
