Remembering Joe Lieberman
Remembering Joe Lieberman_Greg Asimakoupoulos-The Connecticut senator is a casualty of warThe fall campaigns are heating up
as conflicts brew and then erupt.
There's hatred lobbed like hand grenades
by those denouncing Bush.

What once was in Iraq alone
can now be found right here at home.
The front lines are dividing us.
The war's become a war.

Joe Lieberman's a casualty
thanks to the likes of Hillary
who take their aim
and shoot their mouths
at those who back our boys.

And all the while our troops fight on
confused by those who wag their tongues
creating sound bites for the news
that question freedom's fight.

Have we forgot what got us there?
To combat terror everywhere?
Perhaps that's why support once voiced
has blown apart to bits.

It's time insurgents dropped their arms
lest troop morale sustain more harm
and party politics succeed
in slaughtering goodwill.

Greg, I must disagree with you on this one. Senator Clinton was not the cause of Joe's defeat. Joe was the cause of his own demise. Not only had he un-questionally followed the Bush administration into war. Not a war to end terrorism as maintained by the Bush Administration. I believe that the verdict is in and it finds the Bush Administration lied to the American people. Joe bit it hook, line, and sinker. Might I suggest John Dean's Worse than Watergate?

However, I cannot expect much more from a spokes person of the Christian Right. I believe that once again, Greg, that you follow the Pat Robertson's of this country blindly into the death of the Separation of Church and State. President Carter's Our Endangered Values: America's Moral Crisis is a good choice.

Greg,

I appreciate your work. I may not always agree. Then again, I dont always agree with my work all of the time. :-) But I do appreciate the way you share your opinoins.

My one point is that Sen. Clinton has stood with Sen. Liebermann on the issue of the war not opposed to it. For me it is out of character for Hillary not to cut and run on this issue but it also may be the one thing that keeps her from her ultimate goal - the White House in her name. If she continues to back the policies of this administration in regards to the war in Iraq and the Democrats continue to repent for the support of the war, she could be in trouble for 2008. Then again, she is probably coated with teflon and it wont stick to her like it would other candidates.

PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
