Joe Lieberman To Newsmax: “Thank God” Momentum Is With Republicans
Independent “Democratic” Senator Joe Lieberman, speaking with the conservative Newsmax, is very happy about what he perceives as movement away from Democrats in Congress.
“There were a lot of people, particularly Democrats, who were declaring after the 2008 election that we were beginning a period of Democratic dominance that would go on for decades,” Lieberman said during an interview with the conservative Newsmax magazine. “Now, all of a sudden, the momentum is with the Republicans. And that’s — thank God — that’s the way people have spoken, you know? That’s our democracy.”
Lieberman says there is a shift attributable to independents who “have turned either toward the Republican Party or against Democrats.” And he hinted he isn’t closed to running as a Republican.
“Right now I’d probably be more inclined to run again as an independent,” he said. “But anything is possible.”
Lieberman supported the McCain-Palin ticket in 2008 and says people should listen to Sarah Palin.
“I do disagree with her on some of the specifics that she has said, but I think anybody who underestimates Sarah Palin as a political force in America does so at some peril, because she is speaking for a lot of people out there,” he said. “I don’t know what her future is, but I’m just saying everybody should listen.”
