Another day, another false political attack from the McCain campaign. This time it comes from Joe Lieberman, who directly smeared Barack Obama at a McCain town hall event:
Lieberman: Obama Has Not Always Put Country First
By MICHAEL COOPER
YORK, Pa. – One of the McCain campaign’s new themes, that Senator John McCain has always put his country first, has been seem by some analysts as a subtle suggestion that his opponent, Senator Barack Obama, has not.
But as he introduced Mr. McCain at a campaign event here on Tuesday, Senator Joseph I. Lieberman of Connecticut made the attack a lot more explicit, calling the election a choice "between one candidate, John McCain, who has always put the country first, worked across party lines to get things done, and one candidate who has not."
If Joe Lieberman honestly believes what he's saying, then why did he urge Barack Obama to run for president in the first place?
Update: Here's video of Lieberman's comments, along with the video of him talking about why he told Barack Obama to run for president. Unfortunately, you can't see Lieberman's face during his comments from today, but you can hear him clearly.
