I’m concerned that he is making a Republican case, and he is uttering almost the same words as Vice President Cheney and I think it’s inappropriate.
Uh, look, let’s be very very clear about this: Ned Lamont has been courageous and he has stood up and the voters of Connecticut—they’re not Dean Democrats, they’re not Kerry Democrats, they’re not Lamont Democrats—they’re Democrats. They’re Chris Dodd Democrats, they’re Democrats who for years supported Joe Lieberman.
And the fact is Joe Lieberman is out of step with the people of Connecticut. I believe that he’s just dead wrong with respect to the war. And to adopt the rhetoric of Dick Cheney who has been wrong about almost everything he has said about Iraq shows you just exactly why he got in trouble with the Democrats there.
