Joe Lieberman just said: "Senator Obama is a gifted and eloquent young man who can do great things for our country in the years ahead. But eloquence is no substitute for a record."
Wonder which party Joe Lieberman will caucus with now? The Welcome Mat may not be out at the Democrats' luncheons.
Lieberman praises Palin, a woman with whom he disagrees on nearly every social issue in the political arena.
Once you joined GOP, you naturally become a hypocrite. Lieberman is a perfect example of this.
That is what blows me away. He praised her yet doesn't agree with her on the issues.
I can believe what he said about McCain but then he endorsed Palin someone who he doesn't even know. So what does that say about the value of his endorsement and his judgement?
Candy,Now you are talking................these guys are Disillusioned.
No kidding. the guy is a hypocrite and now a Republican mouthpiece.
Sorry, looks more like he suffers from Delayed mid-life crisis!
Joe spoke the truth and clearly doesn't care if the liberals don't like it.
That's what you call just another weasel in Washington looking to gain political points.
Yup. A Man telling us about 2 Mavericks that our country needs.
Ummm... Sorry Joe. No thanks.
It will be much better for Sen. Lieberman to start acting as Republican. He has put some wounds in the Democratic Party.
Can you say sell-out? His own party didn't want him so he ran as an Independent. The Dems have kept him around as a manner of political necessity but soon that necessity will be over. He's already turned his back on everything that he believes in, it's only a matter of time before he sacrifices what remains of his self-respect.
Hey Lieberman, just stay with the GOP... until you're voted out of office. Which shouldn't be much longer now. Thanks!
"Could get a chilly response"???? Now there's an understatement!!
Well said Joe...the hardest part for the dems will be the fact it was truthful.
So much for being the bigger man. Lieberman, like McCain, has turned.
He is willing to sell out his beliefs in the name of making a cheap political point. No longer the maverick, he is just another face in the political crowd that once actually stood for something. Enjoy the GOP, Joe.
Basically, Joe Liberman is looking for a new home.
He didn’t make it eight years ago in the Democratic Party and yet now he supports the republicans and Palin. A person he surely doesn’t know.
A party he never supported.
I guess if John McCain likes her likes her he likes her too.
What does that say for him???
The democrats didn’t want him so he turns republican supporter.
Basically his career is over and this is a last restore to try to get into a party.
So, I for one would not read much into his speech.
Not sure what deal McCain is offering him, but if it works good luck.
With his views the democrats are better off!!!
Sarah Palin scares me. She believes that global warming isn't man-made? Lieberman's problem is he can't decide what he believes in. I know everything Palin believes in I don't. Talk about extreme right. McCain has lost his mind.
Do the Republicans really want to bring into the debate their RECORD? it's because of that record they are in trouble for crying out loud.
Same old Politics no matter which republican gets up and tells it. Bush, Bush, Bush, it.... They had the nerve to bring in Ronald Reagan to separate John McCain from Bush, it does not matter how they try and change this scenario around, it remains the same and sounds the same, Bush.
The Lieberman have "Two Faces", will be how history remember this wanta be VP........
Republicans would have us believe America and the world is doing great after the last 8 years. This election is about direction – McCain will stay the course, Obama will change direction. Take your pick.
Lieberman is doing more good for the democratic party while in the house of republicans, than he could have ever done from the DNC.
I still can't beleive he's endorsing the ticket. Let alone Palin. Wait till everyone reads more on Palin.
i think that good ol' Joe has lost all his cool points in the democratic party
This CT native knows first hand what joke Lieberman's reputation has become.
Well, hats off to Joe Lieberman who is man enough to put his country before politics! Bravo Joe!
