McCAIN - LIEBERMAN REPUBLICAN TICKET McCain must WANT TO LOSE
Choosing Lieberman will guarantee Obama's spot as the next president. WTF is McCain thinking?
========================



Joe Lieberman, the former Democratic vice-presidential nominee who has endorsed John McCain, is being vetted as a potential running mate for the Republican presidential hopeful, according to an adviser to Mr McCain’s ­campaign.

Mr Lieberman, who has campaigned for the Arizona senator, has long been ­considered an unconventional but plausible choice for Mr McCain.

Although Democrats have rejected Mr McCain’s image as a maverick politician, Mr Lieberman’s support for the presumptive Republican nominee has, much to the chagrin of his former ­colleagues, helped to boost Mr McCain’s reputation as a bi-partisan legislator with friends on both sides of the aisle. Mr Lieberman, a staunch supporter of Israel, could also help Mr McCain win over Jewish voters.

“[McCain] loves Lieberman. And he is on the [short-]list because Lieberman has never embarrassed anyone, never misspoken. The first rule is, don’t take someone who costs you votes,” said one McCain adviser.

But not everyone would be enthusiastic about Mr Lieberman being added to the ticket. While Mr Lieberman has staunchly defended Mr McCain’s support of the surge, the escalation of US troops in Iraq, and the lawmakers have teamed up on legislative proposals to ­combat global warming, the registered independent is aligned with Democrats on most other issues.

“Conservatives would be pissed as hell – I think you would have a revolt, but sometimes John does what John wants to do,” the McCain adviser said.

Another McCain adviser said that it was unlikely that the Republican candidate would base his decision on “tactical considerations”.

“He can be pragmatic, but on the biggest decisions he tends to favour his instinct for the bigger picture,” the adviser said.

Mr Lieberman’s office declined to comment. But when the senator was asked recently whether he would decline a request by Mr McCain he said: “It’s not going to happen”.

Mr Lieberman has left open the possibility that he would speak at the Republican National Convention, a move that would probably ensure that Democrats would strip him of his chairmanship of the committee on homeland security. Democratic leaders allowed Mr Lieberman to caucus with them in the Senate even after he left the party to become an independent, because it gave the party control of the Senate. ­However, most analysts agree that if, as expected, Democrats win more seats in this year’s election, Mr Lieberman will be forced out of his coveted role on the ­committee.

Speculation surrounding Mr McCain’s short-list of potential nominees has so far focused on Republicans, including Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor and his rival for the Republican nomination, Tim Pawlenty, the governor of Minnesota, and Rob Portman, the former Ohio ­congressman.

The McCain campaign declined to comment.

Re: McCAIN - LIEBERMAN REPUBLICAN TICKET McCain must WANT TO LOSE
i've been saying all along that whoever mc caine runs with is the one that 'they' really want for president, (he will conveniently die of old age heart attack after being elected and giving republicans a bad name with his actions, and #2 will take over). Also you saw this coming when that phony impostor Rush Limbaugh started trying to remake LIEberman as more republican than democrat three years ago, all planned out.

I won't vote if mc caine pics any j0o, which appears to be everyone on the list except mitt romney.


who america NEEDED was gulianni... where his high approval and track record evaporated to is a mystery.

next best (and probably even better) was mitt romney.

People snivel that the economy is bad, yet they never elect a romney or a perot or even a forbes...

another thing, if this really happens then the j0os will consider this a contest between j0o and muslim, and when the muslim wins in a landslide victory, the j0os will wage an unspeakably deadly bloodletting "retaliation" against humans.

won't matter who McCant picks... before this is over, Duncan the panicking used car salesman will be trying to float Drafting Hillary. Independents see McCant as Captain of the spineless and compass-less, war and poverty party.

You have to be kidding...


If McCain chooses Lieberman, and he wins, then total Zionist control is absolutely confirmed.


What a joke...I'll move to Iceland the next day if Lieberman gets anywhere near the office.

And now you understand why the Jewish (Mossad) controlled American media had to insist that Ron Paul never had a chance, while promoting someone who really didn't have a chance (McCain) Despite low support. You are under Mossad control, and you will accept a RABID Israel Firster as your president.....One Way Or Another!

I've been dreaming we get hit by something Like
911 and then it -- McCain brings in Guiliani as
the one "vice" to get the job done.

Everyone will remember how heroic he was and vote
McCain --Guilianni

Repeat this was just a dream -- I am a Ron Pauler.

Thank god it's only a dream. If McCain gets in, we will get hit again, and the last thing he'll do is call Giuliani in for a conference.
