Joe Lieberman To Newsmax: “Thank God” Momentum Is With Republicans

Posted by | April 13, 2010 11:46 | Filed under: Top Stories

Independent “Democratic” Senator Joe Lieberman, speaking with the conservative Newsmax, is very happy about what he perceives as movement away from Democrats in Congress.

“There were a lot of people, particularly Democrats, who were declaring after the 2008 election that we were beginning a period of Democratic dominance that would go on for decades,” Lieberman said during an interview with the conservative Newsmax magazine. “Now, all of a sudden, the momentum is with the Republicans. And that’s — thank God — that’s the way people have spoken, you know? That’s our democracy.”

Lieberman says there is a shift attributable to independents who “have turned either toward the Republican Party or against Democrats.” And he hinted he isn’t closed to running as a Republican.

“Right now I’d probably be more inclined to run again as an independent,” he said. “But anything is possible.”

Lieberman supported the McCain-Palin ticket in 2008 and says people should listen to Sarah Palin.

“I do disagree with her on some of the specifics that she has said, but I think anybody who underestimates Sarah Palin as a political force in America does so at some peril, because she is speaking for a lot of people out there,” he said. “I don’t know what her future is, but I’m just saying everybody should listen.”
