Joementum … Joe Lieberman Throws his Support for McCain and Obama Under the Bus


Lieberman: John McCain is no ordinary candidate. When it comes down to it, being the President of the United States is all about character and the decisions

“I appeal to independents, Democrats, and Republicans. Let’s come together this November to make a great American patriot, John McCain, our next great president.”

“Sen. Barack Obama is a gifted and eloquent young man …”But my friends, eloquence is no substitute for a record — not in these tough times for America.”

Then Democrat Joe Lieberman, just eight short years ago, was a couple of hanging chads and a heart beat away from being the President of the United States. Fast forward 8 years and Joe Lieberman tells America, Democrats and Independents that it is time to put country ahead of party and vote for the only qualified person to be President, John McCain. As McCain has put Country before Party, so to is Joe Lieberman. Lieberman stated what many, including the LEFT, have known for years as prior to McCain’s run for office he was praised by Democrats for his Maverick, own man’s form of politics. The Democrats wish to now write revisionist history now that John McCain is a perceived threat.

Playing his former party’s spoiler, the Democrat-turned-Independent called McCain — not Democratic nominee Barack Obama — the best choice to lead the country forward in his prime-time address to the Republican National Convention.

“Sen. Barack Obama is a gifted and eloquent young man who can do great things for our country in the years ahead,” Lieberman said. “But my friends, eloquence is no substitute for a record — not in these tough times for America.”

He broke with his party over the war in Iraq and used his platform Tuesday to criticize Obama’s national security record and hail McCain’s. Lieberman, one of the strongest backers of the war, said that while Sen. Obama was voting to cut off funds for troops in Iraq, McCain took the unpopular position to support a surge in troops.

“Because of that, today, America’s troops are coming home, thousands of them, and they’re coming home in honor.”

      It’s been pointed out here before—but I want any female blogger on this site to pay attention to what many in the media (COMING STRAIGHT OUT OF OBAMA’S CAMPAIGN & OTHER DEM SOURCES) are doing:

      Attempting to crucify a female VP Candidate right before America’s eyes!!!

      Look at how the DEM’s treated one of their very own- HRC—-don’t even dare try to say there was not sexism involved and that she was treated fairly. They were A LOT tougher on her not just b/c of Bill- but because she is a female.

      HERE THEY ARE DOING IT AGAIN?? Trying to take her down, and using her family in the process.

      Hang tough, Sara! Just like HRC did. And don’t anybody kid yourselves—-Obama and his outfit can get up and spew on and on about how Pro-Women and “Pr0″ everything they are—-their ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN THEIR WORDS!

      It took us over three-quarters of a century to make all these great strides and achievments as women, and I for one, want to continue to move forward….NOT take huge giant steps backwards!

      OBSERVE !!!!!!!! THIS IS HOW Barrack Hussien Obama and his cabinet will treat women! If they are doing it now- what is to stop them after??

      Give me a break. Lieberman is a fence jumper and most of America knows it. He would sell his soul to the devil it would benefit him in anyway.

      #3- I am not talking about nor do I care about Lieberman or anything he says!

      I’m referring to the MANNER in which the Dems….the progressive liberal bleeding heart dems are LITERALLY ATTEMPTING TO crucify ANY WOMEN on the ticket. This is OUTRAGEOUS!

      Another one- the second one in this year’s political campaign who they are running over and being nasty with! First HRC, now Palin.

      It’s hypocritical and disgusting! UNFAIR?? Understatement! I don’t care what political denomination you are—this is as obvious as the nose on your face.

      Two people I was happy to see last night. George Bush Sr. and his wife.. That guy amazes me. I was never a fan of Barbara Bush’s when she was in the White House. I read her books and really come to like her and she has a wild sense of humor, as does George. I don’t believe in any way that Joe Lieberman went out last night to speak for John McCain because he is looking for attention or it would benefit himself.

      No way.
      No how.
