WASHINGTON (CNN) - Sen. Joe Lieberman applauded Arlen Specter's move to the Democratic caucus, saying he was pleased to be joined by "yet another independent minded Democrat."
"I enthusiastically welcome my good friend Arlen Specter into the Democratic caucus. It will be very good to have the company of yet another independent minded Democrat in the caucus!" he said in a statement.
"I have always admired Arlen as a man of deep principle who has been a bridge builder to get things done in the Senate. Arlen understands that we get things accomplished when we listen to the vital center of American politics. I know that Arlen will continue to make a major contribution to the Senate and the nation as an effective independent leader and problem solver."
Allen Specter's move is call political prostitution
Well, well, if you can't beat them, join them.
However, I do not have much respect at all for turncoats, him or lieberman, lieberman would tell you the sky is pink and his cat was really a dog if he thought it would get him somewhere.
He is a shameless politician who will stoop to any lows at all to try and stay relevent. Your time has come old joe, get out before the people throw you out on your keester.
Shut up Joe, you traitor.
I wouldn't 'trust' Senator Joe Lieberman if you paid me. His advice on many issues has been a disaster.., just ask Senator John McCain and the Republican Party. He is somewhat of a 'traitor' in politics.., watch yourself Arlen. Mike in Montana
Shut Up Lieberman!! Nobody Cares to hear whatever CRAP yu have to say!! Go right back in ur hole!!
Steele you sound like a thug with that "baby we are coming after you." You may not agree with Senator Specter's decision but do respect him and wish him well. Guess what, you are going to loss many more seats in both houses.
Good for him.
What is Lieberman talking about? He's a Democrat who sides with Republicans on every issue, not vice versa. Maybe he forgot who he is?
That Judas need to sit down somewhere. Specter is a much better than Liberman the spineless coward.
As a resident of PA, Spector it is great to have you on the good side. WELCOME!!!!!!
Lieberman is just happy because he no longer is the latest turn-coat. It's time for Arlene to wear the backstabber mantel for a while (until he loses the upcoming bid for reelection).
LIEberman should know all about being a turncoat, but i welcome specter to the good side.
Liberman is just happy to have company as a Senate outcast
Libermab is a fool but atleast he is siding with the right side for the moment before jumping into repubs vanwagon in 2012 but I think he learned his lesson from last election though.
Liberman please shut your mouth for now and enjoy the forgiveness you got from Dems ok.
Lieberman is a weasel of the highest order. I can't believe someone as awesome as Gore put him on the ticket.
Lieberman is a true patriot. We need more senators to become independents completely free of the slavery of both parties.
Now that Specter is a Democrat, can we pleeaase boot two-faced, backstabbing Lieberman out of the caucus? Pleeeeeeeease!!!!
Although I was not pleased with Lieberman's support of McCain, he speaks his mind, votes his conscience, and is most welcome in the Dem Caucus. Now: Olympia, Susan, come on down!
Interesting that Obama junior commenters love a moderate Repub that thinks for himself and hates a moderate Dem who does the same thing.
Question the RNC – DNC Authority.
Lieberman still votes with the democratics.
Lieberman should shut up. He belongs with Steele.
Sen. Joe Lieberman, Sen Specter is NOT your kind of OPPORTUNISTIC Independent. I hope Sen. Joe Lieberman you can keep your seat in the coming elections.
Why is Lieberman still a Democrat after supporting McCain at the RNC Convention last year? Too much drama in politics.
Was that the arrangement....the Dems get Specter and the Rushpublics get Lieberwrong...SWEET! How can you be welcoming someone somewhere that you yourself isn't welcomed!
LIEBERAT. HOG WASH.
