    On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean took aim at Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), who took the lead on a letter to the leadership to Iran that warns the regime that any nuclear deal made with the Obama administration and not approved by the Congress faces the risk of not being honored by future administrations.
  • Howard Dean: Don't Call Paris Shooters 'Muslim Terrorists'

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Howard Dean—that celebrated scholar of Islam—has weighed in on today's murderous rampage in Paris and declared that he refuses to call the shooters in this and similar cases "Muslim terrorists." According to Dean, the disregard for the lives of others that these terrorists display "is not what the Koran says." Dean's denial of the obvious puts him in the company of many liberals, most notably including President Obama, who after the beheading of James Foley declared that ISIS "speaks for no religion."

    The church needs to focus more on art and less on religion and converting people in an effort to become less “churchy,” according to Stanford University’s Dean for Religious Life, The Very Reverend Dr. Jane Shaw. “I think people are always slightly surprised that I’m not very churchy as a person,” Shaw told the Palo Alto Online in an interview. “I don’t think church is to be more churchy. I think church is about, anyone should be welcome. I’m really interested in how you welcome many different kind of constituencies, certainly not convert them, not even necessarily to do religion...

    Within 24 hours of the 2014 midterm election results pouring in, handing the Senate over to Republicans, outgoing Majority Leader Harry Reid unleashed his chief-of-staff to the Washington Post where he slammed the Obama White House for the Democrat bloodbath. Now, after comments from Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber surfaced showing the administration lied to "stupid" Americans in order to get the legislation passed, former Democrat Presidential candidate and DNC Chairman Howard Dean is calling the architects of the law "elitist" who don't "fundamentally understand Americans."

    **SNIP** During an appearance on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” Dean argued that the key premise of needing younger Americans signing up to make the program viable “doesn’t really matter that much.” “This is about the individual mandate,” he said. “The individual mandate was not necessary and it’s probably a big political thing, and that is going to hurt the Democrats because people don’t like to be told what to do by the government no matter what party they’re in.” The remarks by Dean are significant because of his position as former DNC chairman, as well as his being a doctor.

    When Obamacare policies go into effect Jan. 1, some Americans may be surprised to learn that their favored doctors or specialists aren’t covered under new plans. But supporters of the health-care reform law argue that the blame for that won’t rest with the Obama administration. “Remember, this is the insurance industry that’s running this and the insurance industry always squeezes costs by eliminating possibilities of seeing people,” said former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean during an interview on “Fox News Sunday.” Mr. Dean is also the former head of the Democratic National Committee.

    When Congress debated Obamacare, pro-life advocates and Republicans like Sarah Palin were castigated for claiming the government-run health care program would include death panels that would ration health care treatment. Now, former presidential candidate Howard Dean has essentially admitted they were right and is calling for the repeal of the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). In a Wall Street Journal op-ed Monday he called the IPAB “essentially a health-care rationing body” that he believes will fail. “There does have to be control of costs in our health-care system. However, rate setting — the essential mechanism of the IPAB — has...

And it's a good start. But we're not going to get out of this deficit problem unless we raise taxes across the board, to go back to what Bill Clinton had and his taxes. And if we don't do that, the problem is the pressure is going to be on spending even more.

Soderberg made the debunked claim as a guest on tonight's episode of The O'Reilly Factor (Thursday, February 9, 2006).Soderberg's claim would refer to the arrest of terrorist Ahmed Ressam at the U.S-Canada border on December 14, 1999.

    By now many conservatives have heard about the widespread voter fraud committed by Obama and his supporters in the 2008 Democratic primary election allowing him to claim the party’s nomination over popular vote winner Hillary Clinton. As exposed in the movie We Will Not Be Silenced, Obama and close political ally ACORN “created an army to steal caucus packets, falsify documents, change results, allow unregistered people to vote, scare and intimidate Hillary supporters”. One participant in the massive voter fraud who has not received nearly the credit he deserves for the electoral theft is Howard Dean. While the FEC is...

    Liberals: When asked about Democrats running away from the president and running campaign messages in opposition to Washington and to the president’s policies, Tim Kane said, “People ought to be proud to be Democrats.” Howard Dean: "We thought that Fox [news] worked for the Republican Party, now we know that Fox really runs the Republican Party" Christina Romer: “The only surefire ways for policymakers to substantially increase aggregate demand in the short run are for the government to spend more and tax less. In my view, we should be moving forward on both fronts.” Senate majority leader, Harry Reid: “It...

    Jackson County prosecutors today charged a student wearing a bullet-resistant vest with slashing the throat of a dean at the Metropolitan Community College-Penn Valley just 20 minutes before Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon was scheduled to speak there. Prosecutors charged Casey Brezik, of Raytown, with two counts of first-degree assault and two counts or armed criminal action in connection with the 9:35 a.m. attack on the second floor of the Humanities Building on the campus at 3210 Southwest Trafficway. ....> About an hour before the stabbing, Brezik posted an update that said: “Pharaoh let my people go! We have but two...

    Former Democratic National Party chairman Howard Dean predicted on Sunday that his party will retain a narrow majority in the House. "I'd bet money on the Senate, for sure. The House is much tougher," Dean told CNN's "State of the Union." "We're going to win in the House and we're going to have a majority. It will probably be reduced to ... perhaps as small as a five- or 10-seat majority," he said. Last month, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said there was "no doubt" that it would be tough for Democrats to squeak by without losing power in the...

    Via Breitbart. Normally I wouldn’t bore you with three mosque posts in a row but this is such a thunderbolt coming from a true-blue lefty that it won’t wait. I can’t imagine that Dean-o really believes what he’s saying here; the mosque is too much of a cause celebre on the left at this point for him to deviate for reasons of conscience. Presumably he’s simply so terrified by the polling on this issue that he’s willing to do whatever damage control he can to mitigate losses in November. (He’s a former head of the DNC, remember, so he’s used...

    Martha Dean, a political outsider who made support for gun ownership part of a broadly conservative agenda, easily won the Republican primary for attorney general Tuesday against challenger Ross Garber, a moderate who had the backing of much of the party establishment. (Also) Kevin Lembo (who is married to a man) trounced Waterbury Mayor and five term, former state legislator Michael Jarjuara in the primary for state comptroller by a 70 to 30 ratio, according to unofficial returns. Jarjura appeared poised to carry his hometown of Waterbury by a couple of hundred votes, but little else. The Garber-Dean contest, which...

    With all of this contrived talk about Tea Parties and Racism we get an actual look into the soul of Democrat depravity ŕ la Democrat Super partisan Keith Olbermann and Uber-Democrat partisan Howard Dean as they discuss how Democrats plan to wage war against Republicans coming up until this November. And what do we find? We find that calling the Tea Party Racists is nothing at all but a plot of Democrats to demonize Tea Parties. Since Democrats had such grand success in turning the entire world against George W. Bush, they think that employing the very same strategy will...
