Former Dem VP Candidate Says Obama Does Not Put Country First (Video)
Lieberman says one candidate is a talker and one is a leader.
Joe Lieberman lashed out at this year’s Democratic presidential nominee. Lieberman said that Obama does not always put the welfare of his country first.
The senator may have been referring to Obama’s votes against the successful Bush Surge–
Votes which gave Al-Qaeda and the Iranian regime a boost in the region.
The Caucus reported:
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.”
Mr. Lieberman, the Connecticut Independent who was the Democratic vice presidential nominee in 2000, made the remark as he used his introduction of Mr. McCain to deliver a harsh assessment of Mr. Obama without mentioning his name.
“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.”
