Lieberman praises Barack Obama
Joseph Lieberman is a weasel. He's supposed to speak to the RNC today. What will the weasel say about Senator Obama?
John Amato at Crooks and Liars has a video of a speech Mr. Lieberman made in 2006. Amato says "This is more evidence that Joe has attached himself to McCain out of fear of being 'left behind' in the Senate and not because he believes McCain is the right choice for president."
"Left behind" probably has to do with being stripped of his committee responsibilities by the Democrats, who after November 4, will no longer need his vote.
Here's what Lieberman said in 2006:
"As far as I'm concerned [Barack Obama] is a 'Baruch,' which means a blessing. He is a blessing to the United States Senate, to America, and to our shared hopes for better, safer tomorrows for all our families. The gifts that God has given to Barack Obama are as enormous as his future is unlimited. As his mentor, as his colleague, as his friend, I look forward to helping him reach to the stars and realize not just the dreams he has for himself, but the dreams we all have for him and our blessed country."
Obama has been given gifts from God! Now, how could Lieberman, or anyone, oppose Obama and vote for McCain, who has no visible or tangible gifts, other than the gift for telling lies and flip-flopping.
I think I'll vote with God this time, and punch my ballot for Obama.
