Former Democratic vice-presidential candidate turned independent turned John McCain supporter Sen. Joe Lieberman either knows something the rest of us doesn't. Or he's employing scare tactics in his support of the Republican presidential candidate.
In an appearance on CBS' Face The Nation, Lieberman said one reason he backs McCain is that McCain is better suited to respond to another terrorist attack. And he says one will likely take place next year.
Lieberman believes the terrorist will test the new president, whoever he may be, early.
Unless there's intel to support this contention, Lieberman is guilty of speculating and fear mongering on behalf of McCain.
Many voters are rightly concerned about Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's lack of experience. But that doesn't necessarily translate into the United States being more vulnerable.
One needs only to recall the same concerns about John F. Kennedy Jr. when he was elected president. And look at the way he handled the Cuban missile crisis.
