Lieberman: For Obama Before He Was Against Him w/ Video

Can't make this crap up people. Looks like Joe Lieberman was for Barack Obama before he was against him. Here is a clip that Lieberman gave at the Jefferson-Jackson-Bailey dinner in March 2006.

As far as I'm concerned [Barack Obama] is a `Baruch,' which means a blessing. He is a blessing to the United States Senate, to America, and to our shared hopes for better, safer tomorrows for all our families. The gifts that God has given to Barack Obama are as enormous as his future is unlimited. As his mentor, as his colleague, as his friend, I look forward to helping him reach to the stars and realize not just the dreams he has for himself, but the dreams we all have for him and our blessed country

Baruch? What's the Hebrew word for flipflopper or "see ya later Joe"? I would love to see this clip being played evry where tomorrow. Seems like a pretty strong endorsement at the time.

Lieberman was cool with the dems until he lost to Lamont in the primary, then got upset that they didn't support him in the election. Now, he is just putting politics first with his sad droopy looking face. Really cry-babyish or passive-aggressive if you ask me.

Lieberman comes as for more Messianic in his support of Obama than 99 percent of real Obama supporters.

Looks like most around McCain has a slogan other than: Country First.

Lieberman: Politics First!
Palin: Alaska First!

Any others?

You have to get rid of the "allowfullscreen" tag.

Help with the Hebrew

1. Baruch does not mean blessing, it means blessed. The word Joe wanted was Brachah.  Any observant Jew would know this.  Either he's ignorant, or he's a fraud.  As I happen to know one of his Rabbis, I'll generously give him the former.

2. Don't know what 'flip-flopper' is in the holy tongue.  But someone who talks a lot of crap is a kashkashan.  Someone who talks idiotic nonesense is a shtutnik.  A liar is a shakran.  An annoying namby-pamby is nich-nach.  I'd call Joe an 'efes' at this point.  That literally and figuratively means a 'zero.'

Should drop an ad when Liebermann speaks tonite

On other thoughts, I keep thinking that Barack and Clinton brought this on the Dem party. If those two had campaigned hard for Lamont, nobody would have cared for this seriously sick man.

Re: Lieberman: For Obama Befor

Lieberman is a fucking hypocrite. If he is so birpartisan, why does he give Repubs a free pass? And why is it that he is principled in his stand for iraq, yet those who differ with him are partisan and dont truly blieve it is a stupid war?
