Former Democratic VP Candidate Joe Lieberman Says … “Obama Has Not Always Put Country First”


Change has been going on in the Democratic Party for quite some time and not for the better. Joe Lieberman says, “Obama Has Not Always Put Country First” … that is going to leave a mark.

One of the McCain campaign’s new themes, that Senator John McCain has always put his country first, has been seen by some analysts as a subtle suggestion that his opponent, Senator Barack Obama, has not.

But as he introduced Mr. McCain at a campaign event here on Tuesday, Senator Joseph I. Lieberman of Connecticut made the attack a lot more explicit, calling the election a choice “between one candidate, John McCain, who has always put the country first, worked across party lines to get things done, and one candidate who has not.’’

How much has the Democratic party changed in 8 years? Just eight short years ago, CT Senator Joe Lieberman was running as the Vice Presidential candidate with Al Gore against GWB and Cheney. If that Democratic ticket of Gore/Lieberman had won in 2000, today Lieberman would have been running for the Presidency as a Democrat being the incumbent VP.

Flash forward 8 years and the Democratic party looks nothing of what it once did 8 year ago. Joe Lieberman is no longer a Democrat, he is an Independent and looked upon as a traitor. John McCain is no longer the darling Maverick of the media and Democrats, he is now being painted as a third term GWB candidate. Democrats would have everyone believe that it is everyone else who changes, not them.

Rational, sane people can tell who is a true independent thinking person and who is a party shill in wolf’s clothing. For years people like McCain and Lieberman have been compromising and crossing the aisle against their respective parties because they have believed in a greater good, not a political party stamp. McCain and Lieberman have political credibility for being “mavericks” even if the Obama campaign attempts to distort history. Joseph Lieberman’s latest comments toward Barack Obama will resonate with true independents. How badly will Lieberman divide Democrats? Keep in mind this is the same Joe Lieberman that Democrats once fawned over and would have been a heart beat away from the Presidency.

“In my opinion, the choice could not be more clear: between one candidate, John McCain, who’s had experience, been tested in war and tried in peace, another candidate who has not,’’ Mr. Lieberman said. “Between one candidate, John McCain, who has always put the country first, worked across party lines to get things done, and one candidate who has not. Between one candidate who’s a talker, and the other candidate who’s the leader America needs as our next president.”

The Gateway Pundit has the VIDEO and as Lieberman says … “one candidate is a talker and one is a leader.”

      There is only one independent minded thing person in this election who has a track record of reaching across the aisle and it is not The Chosen One.

      “In the 21st century nations don’t invade other nations.”
      John McCain 8/13/2008

      Which century does McCain live in? That some serious mental confusion to say the least.

      Can we un-invade Iraq now Mr. McCain and bring the troops home for Thanksgiving?

      “In the 21st century nations don’t invade other nations.”
      John McCain 8/13/2008

      That statement should automatically disqualify him from running for President.

      No attack on McCain please….he helped keep our country safe….

      You YoYo obviously have a problem with being black…..go to the hardware store and find some whitewash…maybe that will help……this is only meant for you…

      The troops can come home when our country is safe…no one likes war…but keep the war in Iraq….

      #4 – haha. There’s no words to describe what you just said and the meaning behind it. Forget about paragraphs 1 & 3, paragraph 2 is…well…precious.
      Keep typing – it just gets richer and richer

      you are making a complete fool of yourself on a daily basis.You have some serious character issues you need to address.

    7. brie. on August 14th, 2008 5:40 am

      And YoYo gets poorer and poorer….

      There are more and more Democrats disliking Obama..and wanting Hillary on the ballot…

      Whether you are a McCain voter or not, I think the man deserves the up most respect….he is a man of integrity, dignity, intelligence and has always put our country first…Obama thinks the war is a police matter….you know the guy with the false birth certificate…who hides his identity…

    8. brie. on August 14th, 2008 5:54 am

      Obama doesn’t work well in Congress because of his attitude and arrogance…no one likes him…!!! In fact, I haven’t talked with anyone that does…

      Hillary’s picture is all over the internet with the words…NO OBAMA !!!!!

      I’m still waiting on Monkey’s to give us an article on McBush’s infidelity and kicking his first wife to the curb because she was disfigured in a car accident while he was in Vietnam. I thought the vows include “in sickness and in health” but apparently that doesn’t apply to the war hero. On top of that he was having an affair with his current wife before he divorced his first.

      But the conservatives don’t have a problem with that I don’t guess. Oh, that’s right, they’re the ones that impeached Clinton for the same thing. My bad.

    10. Dan on August 14th, 2008 7:09 am

      Yoyo, give John McCain the respect he deserves, he was fighting for our country and freedoms when most were still in diapers and some figuring out puberty. I think you took his comment out of text, he was just saying we are not like the Hauns back in the days .

      Barry Soetoro: Indonesian citizenship, Muslin religion…

      A school registration by the Frankisus Assisi in Jakarta, Indonesia shows the registration of Barack Obama under the name of Barry Soetoro….

      Barack Obama had Indonesian citizenship….and may still have…but he probably dumped it by now….not wanting people to know…

      Barack Obama had the legal name of Barry Soetoro…

      Barack was a Muslim and claims he never was….probably still is…but doesn’t want to admit it….

    12. brie. on August 14th, 2008 7:52 am

      In addition, it means that Barack Obama apparently lied to the Illinois Supreme Court…when asked to provide former names…!!!

      Obama needs to step down…he is like a cock roach….!!!

      Thank God for Patriots like John McCain.

      The yoyo trolls just can’t get a grip on the reality.

      John McCain will be the next President of our great USA.

      In continuing to analyze Obama and debunk some of the myths about him….still many of the undecided voters have some of the very same questions I do about this candidate:

      What is Obama’s belief system?

      Why does Barrack himself remain so hesitant to define himself?

      This avoidance in my opinion continues to encourage much of the negativity surrounding him.

      #6- I agree Re: your post over many of Brie’s racist comments. She’s been warned on this blog about these types of comments in the past, but obviously pays no attention. She still displays her ignorance from time to time…. Kudos for pointing it out. (In her post #7 while trying to support McCain, I believe the word she was looking for was utmost, not up most.) lol

      GOLDERG: Obama flubbed a perfect presidential moment

    16. brie. on August 14th, 2008 3:14 pm

      There are such things as typing errors…get a grip…big fat deal…

      The latest word out is…now Obama was adopted at first by his grandfather Stanley Dunham , who is mother was named after because he wanted a boy, so he also had the name of Barry Dunham….this whole thing gets stranger and stranger….now he has three names….

      Obama’s lack of candor on his birth certificate is not above lying about other things. Perhaps Larry Sinclair’s allegations of Obama’s illicit drugs and sex in the back of a limousine in 1999 as well as complicity in the murder of Donald Young might also be a grist for a serious investigation….

    17. brie. on August 14th, 2008 3:19 pm

      Obama or whoever he is cannot salute the flag because his allegiance is not directed toward America…..he looked pathetic in the video…especially with the war veterans….

    18. brie. on August 14th, 2008 4:08 pm

      Now the call is out there for Obama to step down….the liar of all times and the deceptive life he lead….!!!!! IS HE is a communist trying to lead our country…!????? Down with Obama

      You you cannot hide from your past…Nor can you hide from citizen journalists…

      New girl has now become a troll…!!!! Get a life people…!!!!

      I am tired of talking to the Getto…..!!!!

    21. brie. on August 15th, 2008 7:25 am

      Obama is such a liar…exposed on issues every single day….what a disaster…he needs to step down…..or be put down….it appears the Obama/Soetoro lied to the Illinois Supreme Court when he registered for the bar….

    22. brie. on August 15th, 2008 7:37 am

      Obama comes from such a broken past and the strangest of all lively hood….that’s why he has so many mental issues….he has a distorted past and family…a skin and bones candidate that is a black Muslim racist….and a liar!!!!

    23. A New Girl on August 15th, 2008 9:34 am

      #20- Brie- You really are an idiot. I have been on this blog since 2005, started by following the NH case.

      I’m not a troll, but you, my friend, are definetly an angry person with some issues. The only one who needs to get a life here, my Dear- is you. Can’t you express your opinions and views without lowering yourself to that level?

      We’re going to call you out on it every time- and if you don’t like it…take your ugly little racist ass right off of this blog and no one will shed any tears.

    24. brie. on August 16th, 2008 2:37 pm

      I don’t like the race card and I don’t have too….

      And I don’t like people who are in support of it or perverts or anyone that comes forth and supports those…..!!!!!!!

      Furthermore, how do you know what size my ass is!!!

      I am sick and tired of all of this…I don’t really want to fight with anyone but I am allowed to have a voice….as well as others….the crime, the killings, the kidnappings, the rapes, the robberies, the drugs, now the kids are getting suspended from school, where are the parents, so stay home, live on less, take care of your family, why are your kids on the roads at 3:00AM….

    25. brie. on August 16th, 2008 2:41 pm

      Sometimes you can’t talk above the level or it doesn’t get understood….whatever!!!!

      I am done with this crap!!!!!!!!!!!!
