Lieberman's goodwill all wrong. Again.

Howard Dean: "I'm concerned that every time something happens that is not good for president Bush, he plays this trump card which is terrorism. His whole campaign is based on that notion." (2004)

Joe Lieberman: "I don't think anybody who has any fairness or is in their right mind would think the president or the Secretary of Homeland Security would raise the alert level and scare people for political reasons. That's outrageous." (2004)

Tom Ridge: ""More often than not we were the least inclined to raise it," Ridge told reporters. "Sometimes we disagreed with the intelligence assessment. Sometimes we thought even if the intelligence was good, you don't necessarily put the country on (alert). ... There were times when some people were really aggressive about raising it, and we said, 'For that?' (2005)

So, only the mentally unbalanced would suggest that the GOP is capable of misleading the American public for political gain. Shut up Lieberman, you dumb turd. I wonder if that quote ever garnered any Fox News airtime? By the way-- have you read that Downing Street memo? Grrrr....
