First thing I have heard from Lieberman that makes any sense!
You have to understand that Joe Lieberman, in my eyes, is a turncoat. And I really, really don’t like turncoats. So you may ask why haven’t I come out and said more about him – well, to be honest I don’t, or didn’t, think that he was that significant. Not until he came out with what he was really thinking – from day one when Palin was picked.
“Thank God, she’s not going to have to be president from Day One. McCain’s going to be alive and well.”
“Let’s hope she never has to be ready because we hope McCain is elected and lives out his term. But if, God forbid, an accident occurs or something of that kind, she’ll be ready. She’s had executive experience. She’s smart. And she will have had on-the-job training.”
Now – this is a point that has been levelled against Barack Obama across both the primaries and, more so and importantly, in this campaign. It is a constant from the McCain camp – and we know how far up John McCain’s arse Lieberman is.
The McCain camp know that John McCain is old – and the only thing that Lieberman is saying is that “We hope upon hope that John McCain makes it through the first term of office”.
That, in itself is a probability – I won’t deny that – but what is also a probability is that McCain, like this campaign, will crack under the pressure. Look at his recent “My fellow prisoners” speech – you didn’t think people noticed that? I looked at the take and saw the young woman behind McCain and she was, shall we say, confused? This is the only time this has happened. I know that Biden has made gaffes, but when doesn’t he? This is about Palin’s ability to take the hot seat if anything should go tit’s up for McCain.
Lieberman knows more than you or I – and he isn’t too sure about the tenure.
In addition, Mr. Lieberman added that while he was “working his heart out” to ensure Mr. McCain’s election, were Mr. Obama to win this year, he said: “I’m going to do everything I can to be bringing people together across party lines to support the new president so he can succeed. What’s at stake for our country is just too serious.”
Lieberman there is basically jumping ship – but he has burnt his bridges, that is the one guarantee I can take from this election race. Many will turn their back on him – and rightly so.
