Joe Lieberman
In a wide-ranging NewsMax interview, former Democratic VP nominee Joe Lieberman talked about the need to elect John McCain in November, including:

  • It’s important for the political process to question Obama’s ties to former Weather Underground bomber Bill Ayers: “I think these are very fair questions and it’s now up to Senator Obama to answer them.”

  • Barack Obama is clearly ‘not ready’ yet to be commander in chief, and the country’s adversaries, including Iran “will not fear him” if he were to become president.

  • McCain needs to persuade voters that “based on his record, that he really is the one who will change Washington, and Washington truly needs to be changed.”

  • McCain should tout his economic plan that will emphasize tax cuts and job creation—exactly what a troubled economy needs. He said it would be foolhardy to raise taxes in a recession, as Obama has promised.

  • The Republicans must emphasize that his plan for energy independence will create “hundreds of thousands, I think millions of new jobs.”

    Asked if he may leave his party and join with Senate Republicans, Lieberman said he had no immediate plans to make that move, but said he would consider it at a later date.

    “The Democratic Party of today is not the Democratic Party that I joined in the '60s under my hero President Kennedy, and it’s not the Democratic Party of my dear friend Bill Clinton,” Lieberman said.

    Of course, Lieberman, left out quite a few other dangling issues for the Obama Democrats, including his rather untidy Odinga connection, which has actually been public for some time now, but is only just coming to the top of the boil with Fox News opinionmaker Sean Hannity now on the snarl with some additional damaging news thanks to investigative author Jerome Corsi's recent adventures in Kenya.
