The Changing Attitude of Joe Lieberman and Arnold Schwarzegger Toward President Obama

During the 2008 Presidential campaign, Independent Senator Joe Lieberman  of Connecticut and Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger of California made clear their strong support of Senator John McCain, the GOP Presidential nominee. 

Suddenly, two months into the Obama Administration, both political figures have major compliments and positive statements to make about the President’s programs, actions, and rhetoric.

It is almost like one wonders how these two men could have so quickly switched their loyalties from McCain to Obama.  The transformation is amazing, but it is also a testimonial to both men that they could realize the principled intentions and strong actions of the President are good for the country, at a time when we have divisive radio talk show hosts working very hard to divide the country and promote the failure of the President’s agenda.

It is good to see some good people show their loyalty to the nation’s welfare despite earlier political differences, and this includes not only Lieberman and Schwarzenegger, but also GOP senators Arlen Specter, Olympia Snowe, and Susan Collins, and Republican governor Charlie Crist of Florida.  In the midst of demagoguery, there is also present, thankfully, some real statesmanship!
