Is Lieberman "The New Dick Cheney"


John Kerry joined George Stephanopoulos this morning, and told him that Lieberman is sounding very much like Dick Cheney. Since Cheney has been wrong on every single issue on Iraq--that doesn't appear to be a good strategy, but it hasn't stopped Lieberman from mimicking many of the Republican talking points on Iraq anyway.

"I'm concerned that [Lieberman] is making a Republican case," Kerry told ABC News' "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" in an exclusive appearance.

Kerry accused the 2000 Democratic vice presidential candidate of "adopting the rhetoric of Dick Cheney," on the issue of Iraq.

"Joe Lieberman is out of step with the people of Connecticut," Kerry added, insisting Lieberman's stance on Iraq, "shows you just why he got in trouble with the Democrats there."

Kerry called Lieberman's independent bid a "huge mistake" and applauded businessman-turned-politician Lamont as "courageous" for challenging Lieberman on the war.
