Bush praises Lieberman in TV interview, draws Lamont's ire

HARTFORD, Conn. -- President Bush and the Iraq war are again front and center in Connecticut's tumultuous Senate race.

In a TV interview, Bush praised Sen. Joe Lieberman for standing firm in his support of the Iraq war, drawing a stiff rebuke Tuesday from Lieberman's anti-war challenger, Ned Lamont. The war has been a key issue in the Senate race.

Bush noted that Lieberman has not wavered in his support of the war, unlike Democrats who voted to support it but have since turned against it.

"One man who's stood by his decision is Joe Lieberman," said Bush in an interview on Fox News Channel's "Hannity and Colmes" show. "He understands the consequences. The Democrat Party ran him out of the party because he stood on principle."
