Howard Dean

Howard Dean continues to amaze, astound, and embarrass his own party, the Democrats. So much so, that even the other leaders of the Democrat party are distancing themselves from him and his out of control rhetoric. Here are a few examples of the things that Dean has been saying....On the GOP
"It's pretty much a white, Christian party.''
-- June 6 remarks to audience of journalists and minority leaders
(a note from Mark) Hmmm... How does he explain Colin Powell, Clarence Thomas, Condoleeza Rice, and Janice Brown?

On Republicans
"...A lot of them have never made an honest living in their lives.''
-- June 2 speech in Washington, D.C., at Campaign for America's Future conference
(note from Mark) Sean Hannity, take notice here...he said "a lot", not all. Actually there is likely a lot of truth to this statement, but then it is true of many Democrats as well.

On Tom DeLay, House GOP Leader
"I think Tom DeLay ought to go back to Houston where he can serve his jail sentence."
-- May speech to Massachusetts Democratic Convention
(note from Mark) Maybe he should be charged with a crime and then tried first, ya think? Where is the proof that he even committed a crime?

I really don't know what else to say about this. I think it speaks for itself. Howard Dean is either a secret Republican operative, or an idiot. The leaders are making the point that he doesn't speak for the party, but if the Democrat party national chairman doesn't speak for the party, who does? In any case, the prudent thing for the Democrats to do is get him out of there before the whole party implodes. But they won't listen to me, and since i favor the Republicans on nearly all political issues, that may be a good thing, at least in this case.

I think Dean is indeed a secret Republican operative and the world's biggest bumbling baboon. I am often astonished at some of the things that come out of his mouth.

......or he could be saying what the democrats won't say. they play down what he says yet try to support him at the same time. even though he hasn't raised half of what the republicans have. i think he is their attack dog so that they don't look bad, so their message of hate and intolerance gets out. just another view. laters.

Dean is correct about the Republican Party. Show me all the Black, Hispanic, Asian, Jewish, Muslim, *elected* officals that bear the name "Republican" on their business card.

Of 3,643 Republicans serving in the state legislatures, only 44 are minorities, or 1.2 percent. In the Congress, with 274 of the 535 elected senators and representatives Republican, only 4 are minorities.

Dean is correct. A few token appointments doesn't so easily change the image of the party of Strom Thurmond and Trent Lott.

Dean's job is to make some noise. He seems to be doing well.

The GOP m.o. is to call energetic Democrats "crazy" (Dean, Gore) and mellow Democrats "boring" (Kerry). As soon as the Democrats learn to ignore the silly criticism of the media and the GOP regarding things of this nature, they may actually win some elections.
