McCain Goes for Joe

posted on October 24th

John McCain, the Dean of the Straight Talk Caucus in Congress and one of Joe Lieberman’s closest friends in the Senate, gave a great plug for Joe’s brand of principled, bipartisan politics today on the Imus in the Morning Show:

SEN. MCCAIN: …I think that this is going to be a very tough election, maybe, if we're digging for the pony, it looks like my friend Joe Lieberman is going to get re-elected and that's great news.

IMUS: Yes, and I'm the one person, perhaps you as well, who did not bail out on him. Even when they were -- I even had this discussion with Chris Dodd and others, even when they were urging him to get out of the race. Remember that?

SEN. MCCAIN: The other aspect of this is Americans, as you saw, have a very low approval rating of Congress. They want us to work together in a bi-partisan fashion. He worked with Susan Collins very closely. I have worked with him on a number of issues. He reaches across the aisle in order to get things done. He's a lovely man in many respects, but the fact that he practices bi-partisanship on issues that require it is one of, I think, one of his greatest talents and why he should be back in the Senate.

Lieberman and McCain Truly Are 2 Peas From The Same Pod

According to Joe Lieberman himself, the disastrous Iraq Civil War is the “McCain-Lieberman Policy”

Joe Lieberman:

“In fact, five years ago, after Saddam ejected the UN inspectors, John McCain and I gave up on containment and introduced the Iraqi Liberation Act, which, when it became law, made a change of regime in Baghdad official US policy. You might therefore say that, when it comes to Iraq, President Bush is just enforcing the McCain-Lieberman policy.”

This is from a conference speech given by Joe just a few years ago.

Did you get that? The Iraq disaster is the “McCain-Lieberman Policy”, according to Joe himself!

The saddest thing about McCain is how he completely sold out his ideals for a shot at being President.

The Conservative Regime told him that if he didn't support Bush's torture bill, they'd shut him out from any party help in the coming Presidential campaign. Until now, McCain has probably been the most outspoken opponent to the use of torture, having been tortured as a POW in Vietnam himself.

He's always maintained that torture was not only very ineffective, but it goes against everything that our nation is built upon.

But his lust for the White House overcame his most deeply-held convictions, and he rolled over and voted for the torture bill.

The idea that McCain is supporting Lieberman is perfectly natural in that situation. John and Joe are now brothers in their support of torture.

I'm sickened by the two of them, and by the abject ambition that caused McCain to give up the only thing that many Democrats admired him for.

We are becoming a nation of swine!

November 7th - we MUST win!
