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.
It's the jewish community that should throw him under the bus. They'll do it in November.
He Knows That Once The Dems Dont Need Him For A Majority He Is Done! Dont Let The Door Hit You On The Way Not Joe!
So we are all Americans first, but we can bash liberals???
What we just witnessed was the end of a great politcal career. Liberman will never be elected to public office again after this mutiny!
Was this for real?
I believe that he was praising Palin for her ability to fight the government and bring about positive change, something that Barack hasn't done. Didn't Barack ask people not to focus on the social issues like abortion?
People vote for Obama/Biden and other Democrats and we will get our country back from people like Lieberman/McCain and Republicans.
Why does he praise her if they dont agree on the issues that matter?
He better hope McCain wins because he just committed Political Suicide. Republicans are not going to accept his views.
Political convinence at the very best... Very appalling.
Lieberman's a freaking traitor...
Joe Lieberman whatever man, you don't even know Sara Palin and you supporting her ...so how do you want us to believe u grandpa.
thanxs for coming to this boring convention anyway.
I have a word for you....No way No how No McCain
This guy no longer has any credibility. He is irrelevant.
He is not a democrat ,nor a Republican,hes not even an American to me.We know what country he represents.
This man is a disgrace to the independents and democrats, He bush channey and mccain should all go bye bye. The country is in the worst shape in history and this clown is campaining for these people. He just after a bigger paying job in the white house. Lieberman get on the camel with the rest.
Liberman is a wanderer!
Oh well I guess he is getting his revenge on the Democrats by putting us all in a deep coma with his monotone. What a turncoat.
They save the best for last though..."Lieberman praises Palin, a woman with whom he disagrees on nearly every social issue in the political arena."
Wow.. someone has integrity issues as deep as his loyalty ones...
I can go on.
Wow, what a in depth comment. This just sounds like the angry kid who keeps getting picked last for sports.
I have an idea, try providing references and a attitude that doesn't scream your political leanings. This is CNN, not the local high school paper.
After the election hopefully the Senate will not need his vote, then they can "just let him go" Traitor Joe no friend to the Dems.
Welcome aboard Joe...Lieberman, that is, you can keep Biden.
Joe is a useful idiot for the Republicans. Please let the Democrats not hold 59 seats in the Senate after November.
If you think Obama is not qualified, then you cannot possibly believe that Palin is qualified. They argue that she has more executive experience than Obama and Biden. Yes, but she also has more executive experience than McCain.
Next thing, you'll find them arguing that Palin is more qualified that McCain.
So sad to hear him praise Palin , and say Obama is not ready to lead ...And she is ready to be our top EXec if heaven forbid McCain is elected. Obama has so much more for a Presidential Resume' than she does. Who do I want in charge is not a man who makes such a poor choice for his VP.
I'm a Democrat who noticed least three contradictions in Lieberman's bizarre speech:
1). He praised McCain/Palin for their ability to "take on power brokers and special interests." Isn't Lieberman himself one of Washington's biggest "power brokers"?
2). He praised Pres. Clinton for achieving a balanced budget. Hasn't Pres. Bush left America the largest deficit in history?
3). He praised Gov. Palin for her leadership qualities. Has Lieberman even met Gov. Palin, and does he know anything about her background and ability?
