Kerry lays out the Democrat strategy: Repeat "Lieberman is a Republican," over and over.
Kerry accused the 2000 Democratic vice presidential candidate of "adopting the rhetoric of Dick Cheney," on the issue of Iraq.
"Joe Lieberman is out of step with the people of Connecticut," Kerry added, insisting Lieberman's stance on Iraq, "shows you just why he got in trouble with the Democrats there."
Lieberman, like Bill Clinton, wants to keep abortion "safe, legal, and rare." He wants to "greatly increase" spending on education and the environment. He doesn't support repeal of the estate tax. He wants to increase taxes on those earning over 150 k/year. He wants to greatly decrease taxes on those earning less than 75 k/year. He's in favor of medical marijuana, supports affirmative action in college admissions, and favors an increase in the federal minimum wage. And he's in favor of stem cell research.
Yeah, sounds just like Cheney. Give the man a shotgun and show him the secret handshake; he's obviously one of us.
(2006-08-21) — Just a day after Sen. John Kerry, D-MA, implied that Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-CT, is the new Dick Cheney, the amiable Sen. Lieberman offered to “patch things up” by taking Mr. Kerry on a hunting trip in his native state.
Good to see he's adapting to the way we do things in the R party.
