D’Oh! Lieberman Endorses McCain

Independent US Senator Joe Lieberman has endorsed Republican 2008 presidential candidate US Senator John McCain. For more details on this news item, check out CNN’s report:

I wasn’t surprised by this turn of events. Both men have high regard for each other, Lieberman is practically the only major Democrat figure who understands the threat of Islamofascism (& acts on that understanding), & payback is a bitch to the Democrat establishment who turned its back on Lieberman when he last ran for re-election. Polls show that McCain is currently in second place in New Hampshire (behind Romney) & continues to narrow the gap. What kind of impact (if any) will the endorsement have?

    In NH independents can vote in the primary.  This might turn independents that were going to vote in the dem Primary to McCain.  John has a lot of people fooled. He is by no means a lefty but the lefties think he is.  My only problem with John is CFR.  I think he undermined the constitution with that and I am having a hard time coming to terms with it. I was a McCainiac in 2000 and haven’t really made up my mind yet.

    Though I have a great deal of respect for Sen. Lieberman for his personal decency, integrity, and for standing up to the wingnut faction of his party (and his backstabbing hypocrite party colleagues), I can’t find it in myself to cast a primary vote for McCain.

    Of course, if he’s the nominee, I’ll hold my nose and do the right thing…

    A man who I respect more than any other, shortly before he passed away, offered this in response to my asking him who he thought should be President:

    “McCain should be President for two years, because he’s the only candidate who has the courage to do the things that nobody else has the courage to do. Then, hopefully, he’ll die in office and Romney can take over.”

    This man was an antedeluvian conservative who was a Romney supporter, but he recognized that McCain was committed to some unpopular objectives that just have to be achieved to save our political system.

  • Really, his chance was 8 years ago, and he didn’t win the nomination.  Now, his health issues have caught up with him – no disgrace in that.

    I really LIKE them both, and hope McCain AND Lieberman might serve in Romney’s administration.
