Today the Huffington Post wrote a piece titled, "Jewish Dem Breaks Silence, Rips Lieberman: 'Not His Finest Hour.'" In this article Ira Forman says, referring to Senator Joseph Lieberman's (I-CT) speech to the Republican National Convention last night, that this is 'not his finest hour.'
On Lieberman's comment about Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) Forman said that they were not 'the most honorable."
"At one point he said colleagues like Sen. Obama have cut off funds for our troops while on the battlefield. This attack is not the most honorable. He has said he has wants to go positive and that's what his persona has always been. 'I don't play negative politics.' That's who he professes to be and for a long time we believed it. As we look back upon this in the future this will not be Joe Lieberman's finest hour.
On Palin, Forman said that it must have been difficult for Lieberman to give her his endorsement.
"The phrases that must have stuck in his throat were those when he criticized Obama's lack of experience," said the NJDC head. "'Gov Palin like McCain is a reformer we can believe in and count on.' He knows as well as the rest of us, the reform façade is a Potemkin Village. She was for the bridge to nowhere until it was politically untenable. She has lobbied for pork... If I were him that would be a hard line to force out."
