Lieberman loves Obama - disregard everything he said in 2008
We all change our minds. You say one thing, you give it some thought, and after awhile you could have a different opinion.Skip to next paragraph

For example, if you could ask him, maybe the Grizzly Man would say, in retrospect, that 950 pound bears really aren't that friendly.
Same goes for Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman. He's had a change of thought. But luckily for Joe, he hasn't been eaten.
Although there are plenty who are calling for it.
What I meant was...
Lieberman has done a 180 on Barack Obama.
Like when Lieberman compared the two candidates. He said the choice was between "one candidate, John McCain who always put the country first, worked across party lines to get things done, and one candidate who has not."
That rankled a lot of people on the left.
But he's seeing things differently now. An epiphany perhaps.
"He's shown real leadership," Lieberman told The Associated Press. "Bottom line: I think Barack Obama, President of the United States, is off to a very good start."
As for his disparaging comments?
"We were in the middle of a campaign and we just plain disagreed ... When I said those things not only did I believe them, but I believe looking at the records of the two people then, they were right," Lieberman said.
But to think the change of heart was politically motivated would be cynical. So we won't bring that up.
Despite his new found fondness for President Obama, Lieberman hasn't discarded McCain to the curb. Although he told the AP there are limits to their friendship.
"John McCain and I will be close friends as long as we're alive," he said.
All is forgiven
However, it is heartening to see one person realize that she went overboard in her criticism of Lieberman and self-correct.
"I can't stand that weasel," Enrika originally wrote.
Realizing, minutes later, she was too harsh, Enrika came back and recanted.
"Sorry, comparing him to a weasel is an insult to weasels," she said. "My apologies to weasels everywhere."
