A complete Joe-ron

The choice for president in 2000 was pretty bad. The choice for vice president was abysmal. Joe Lieberman is a Chenying Cheney who's so complete full of Cheney that it's Cheneying insane.
In an interview on CNN's "Late Edition," Dean said he was "concerned that every time something happens that's not good for President Bush, he plays this trump card, which is terrorism."

"His whole campaign is based on the notion that 'I can keep you safe, therefore, in times of difficulty in America, stick with me,' " Dean said.

"It's just impossible to know how much of this is real and how much of this is politics, and I suspect there's some of both."

Dean's comments generated sharp rebukes on the same program from Lieberman, who serves on the Senate Armed Services Committee, and from Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Senate majority whip.

"I think that's the most cynical view," McConnell said. "The president, after all, is the president, even if he's running for re-election.

"And I don't think the American people believe that George W. Bush, the man who's led us so effectively on the war on terror, would politicize something like this."

Lieberman said he thought McConnell was "absolutely right."

"I don't think anybody who has any fairness or is in their right mind would think the president or the secretary of homeland security would raise an alert level and scare people for political reasons," Lieberman said. "That's outrageous."
What planet have you been living on for the past three years, Joe? Fear is the only thing Bush has, and he has used it again and again. Remember the smoking gun is a mushroom cloud, Joe? That was all about fear, it was all lies, and it was all for political reasons. It is why the Democrats are now the minority party in the Senate.

Of course, the Kerry campaign takes Lieberman's side over Dean's. Cheney.
