Lieberman Attacks Obama’s Patriotism

Aug 12 2008 Published by under Featured News

Former Democratic turned “Independent” Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT) took a not so veiled shot at Obama’s patriotism before he introduced John McCain in York, PA today.

“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. 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 candidate,” The Caucus blog quoted Lieberman as saying.

I am curious about what people like Lieberman and McCain think Obama has done that were not putting his country first? Is it because he wants to bring the troops home from a pointless war in Iraq? It is because Obama doesn’t always wear a flag lapel pin, or could be that the last name Obama doesn’t sound American enough for Lieberman?

I don’t know about you, but I grew tired of Lieberman’s act long ago. I think the Democrats should not allow him to caucus with them anymore when the new Congress comes into session in January. They should also take his committee chairmanship away from him. It is obvious that Lieberman isn’t a Democratic leaning Independent.

He has cast his lot with the Republican Party, so that is where he should be. The McCain camp is now completely quoting from the Karl Rove playbook. McCain is fear over hope and style over substance. If this is what Lieberman is supporting, then he doesn’t belong anywhere near the Democratic Party.
