"Democrat" Joe Lieberman: Fox's New Hero

Reported by Melanie - December 1, 2005

Those who heard or read the speech George Bush gave yesterday allegedly outlining a "strategy for victory in Iraq," know that Bush quoted Joe Lieberman (D-CT): "As Democratic Senator Joe Lieberman said recently, setting an artificial timetable would 'discourage our troops because it seems to be heading for the door. It will encourage the terrorists, it will confuse the Iraqi people.'"

Fox News is apparently picking up where Bush left off as Lieberman was praised no less than twice during today's (December 1, 2005) Your World w/Neil Cavuto.

Bill Bennett was Cavuto's first guest. The title of the segment was, "Are Liberals Just Flat Wrong About the War in Iraq?" Cavuto, pathetically pretending that his show is actually about business news, said that if Wall Street was "panicked about what's going on in Iraq, they have a funny way of showing it." Bennett agreed, saying, "The other index to look at, if you will, apart from Wall Street, as Joe Lieberman just pointed out, is look at the Iraqi people - the people who are there - are very optimistic about what's going to happen."

Roughly twenty minutes later, in a roundtable discussion titled, "Is Wall Street Predicting a Win In Iraq?", regular guest Meredith Whitney said, "As Lieberman has said in his article yesterday, you know, the more progress, the more democracy we spread throughout the world, the more capitalist nations we create, the more demand markets we create, and that's great for the markets, as you know very well."

Comment: Ah yes, Fox again takes its cues from the White House, happily quoting a Democrat who supports Bush. There's nothing better! As for Joe Lieberman, it's time for him to switch parties and for Connecticut to vote him out of office.
