Dem Senator Joe Lieberman Backs Republican John McCain … “The Democratic Party today was not the party it was in 2000″
Who really thinks that Barack Obama can bridge the gap between the two parties? No one, not even Democratic Senators in their own party. Joe Lieberman backs John McCain and says … this is the the same Democratic part from 2000. When todays Democratic attack Joe Lieberman, ask yourself why they had no issue with him in 2000? When todays Democrats attack John McCain, ask yourself why they begged, pleaded and wished he was John Kerry’s VP running mate in 2004?
Well, I say that the Democratic Party changed.
The Democratic Party today was not the party it was in 2000. It’s not the Bill Clinton-Al Gore party, which was strong internationalists, strong on defense, pro-trade, pro-reform in our domestic government. It’s been effectively taken over by a small group on the left of the party that is protectionist, isolationist and basically will –and very, very hyperpartisan. So it pains me.
I’m a Democrat who came to the party in the era of President John F. Kennedy. It’s a strange turn of the road when I find among the candidates running this year that the one, in my opinion, closest to the Kennedy legacy, the John F. Kennedy legacy, is John S. McCain.
