I used to like Old Joe but I don’t trust Senator McCain’s choice of anybody for anything, nor do I trust any of his decisions on anything! For me, McCain has sealed Old Joe’s fate…He’s out!
Now you might be asking yourself, “Why would McCain be doing this?” Here is an excerpt from Wikipedia on Old Joe, something a lot of people probably don’t recall. You can probably figure it out for yourselves…
“The most well-known Democratic Party member to support McCain was Senator Joe Lieberman, who had run for vice-president as a Democrat in 2000. On December 17, 2007, Lieberman endorsed McCain, contradicting his stance in July 2006 where he stated, “I want Democrats to be back in the majority in Washington and elect a Democratic president in 2008.” Lieberman cited his agreement with McCain’s stance on the War on Terrorism as the primary reason for the endorsement.”
“On June 5, Lieberman launched “Citizens for McCain,” hosted on the McCain campaign website, to recruit Democratic support for John McCain’s candidacy. He emphasized the group’s outreach to supporters of Hillary Clinton, who was at that time broadly expected to lose the Democratic Presidential nomination to Barack Obama. Citizens for McCain was prominently featured in McCain team efforts to attract disgruntled Hillary Clinton supporters such as Debra Bartoshevich.”
“Lieberman spoke at the 2008 Republican National Convention on behalf of McCain and his running mate, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Lieberman was alongside McCain and Senator Lindsey Graham during a visit to French president Nicolas Sarkozy on March 21, 2008.”
Get it? One of Senator McCain’s pals…Part of the D.C. Swamp!
Come on Don! Make a better choice!
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., defended Joe Lieberman against Democrats expressing concern about him being one of President Trump’s top choices to be FBI director.
McCain was asked by Lisa Desjardins, a correspondent for “News Hour” on PBS,” about his Democratic colleagues’ concerns about Lieberman’s lack of law enforcement experience.
“Joe Lieberman has more experience than all of my [Democratic] colleagues combined. So screw them. And [you] can quote me,” McCain said, according to Desjardins.
Lieberman, a former senator from Connecticut who was Al Gore’s running mate in 2000, is a top candidate for the position, Trump confirmed Thursday.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a close friend of McCain’s, echoed his colleague from Arizona, telling reporters that Lieberman would be a “good choice” for FBI director.
Both senator participated in a full-Senate meeting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who the Trump administration has said made the case that James Comey should be fired as FBI director. Comey was fired by Trump last week amid conflicting accounts about how the decision was reached.
