The White House on Monday said it agreed with Sen. Joe Lieberman’s (I-Conn.) warning that terrorists could test the new president with an attack next year.
Lieberman, who has ruffled Democratic feathers with his outspoken support of Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), said on “Face the Nation” that “our enemies will test the new president early.”
Asked about that statement, White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said Lieberman could be right.
“I think Sen. Lieberman, unfortunately, could be right,” Perino stated, noting that there continue to be extremists determined to attack the U.S.
Of course the White House agreed with Senator Joe Lieberman. They’re all on the same team trying to win a third Bush term for John McCain –and the politics of fear is a key part of McCain’s campaign.
Now, if Lieberman and Bush and McCain had actually put their time and energy into vanquishing al Qaeda, we wouldn’t be talking about the potential for a terror threat.
But, as we learned today, the Iraq war and Bush administration in-fighting hampered the effort to defeat the enemy who killed over 3,000 Americans on September 11th. Joe Lieberman and his pal, John McCain, never held Bush accountable for his failures. Now, they’re all exploiting those failures for political gain. It’s sick, but the traditional media will let them get away with it — again.
