With the recent disclosure by Senator Joe Lieberman that he would try to block Health Care Reform if he didn’t get what he wanted, we contacted a politico that at one time was backing Lieberman for President. Lieberman has done a monumental flip flop on the Medicare Buy In program.
Q: What do you think of Lieberman’s lack of cooperation with the President on Health Care?
A: It’s definitely making it harder.
Q: You supported Lieberman in 2004 for President. Why?
A: Because he was a centrist and the only way Democrats can win election is by backing candidates like him. He was strong on defense and social issues.
Q: But he made John Kerry look like Mr. Excitement.
Q: What was he trying to do with this thing, extract revenge for the way the Dems treated him? Standing on principle?
A: Only he knows. Don’t forget the Dems gave did forgive him for supporting McCain.
Q: To an extent.
Q: I’m so disgusted with Obama not standing up to Lieberman that I’d like to see Howard Dean challenge Obama in the 2012 primaries?
A: Oh don’t do that, that would be a disaster.
Q: That’s how angry people are about this.
A: Remember liberals or left of center Democrats don’t win elections.
Q: True. Hey if you were planning an event for your party would you invite Lieberman to headline it now?
Q: Why not?
A: He’s not a Democrat anymore.
Q: I don’t think he ever was. He might have thought he was in his own timid little chickenhearted mind.
