  • The 65 people who might run for president in 2016

    The Hill ^ | August 20, 2014 | Bob Cusack, Vivian Hughbanks and Tomas Navia
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)There are 65 prominent people who might run for president in 2016. The Democratic and Republican fields contrast sharply. Hillary Clinton is the clear front-runner, while there is no front-runner on the Republican side. Twenty-three Democrats have been mentioned as a candidate or are eyeing a bid, according to an analysis by The Hill. The GOP side has 42. Most of the people on this list wont run, and some have adamantly claimed that theyre not interested. But many politicians have changed their minds on seeking the White House. Before mounting his 2008 bid, then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) said he...

    First, Howard Dean wanted to ship all Republicans to the Ukraine or Russia. Now, unions and at least one elected official are calling for the GOPs death. As The Colorado Statesman reports, state Rep. Crisanta Duran marched with a Latino group and the Service Employees International Union as they chanted Death to the Colorado GOP. At a rally on Tuesday in downtown Denver led by the Service Employees International Union, or SEIU, Latino leaders and community groups held a mock funeral procession in which they declared, Death to the Colorado GOP for killing immigration reform. Joining the demonstration was state...

    On Friday's Hardball, Chris Matthews and Howard Dean slammed the supposedly "lunatic" Republican Party for opposing President Obama's $3.7 billion request to deal with the ongoing crisis at the U.S-Mexico border. Dean likened the political stalemate over this issue and in general in Washington to McCarthyism in the 1950s: "It reminds me of the 'who lost China' debate...where one side is frothing at the mouth and finding communists under every bed; and the other side including some reasonable Republicans...actually trying to run the country." Matthews endorsed the former Vermont governor's take, and targeted fiscal conservatives/the Tea Party as somehow...

    "The problem here is not the president. Its the media. The media doesn't know how to deal with a more sophisticated foreign policy. I happened to be driving from Vermont to New York yesterday, I listened to the whole speech on the radio. I thought it was a good speech. I think what this president has consistently said is that we are no longer living in a polar world. We are going to -- our foreign policy is based on cooperation with other people. He showed it in Libya. He has showed it in Ukraine."

    A terrible sort of insanity has gripped the Democratic Party. On almost a daily basis, when you see the partys leaders in action, you want to start edging toward the door, murmuring Nice doggie. Nice doggie. Today it was Howard Dean (filmed a week ago, but seen on YouTube today). He was addressing a Democratic crowd in Colorado, and went off on a tirade against Republicans. Yes, he really did say that Republicans arent American. And that they should stay away from the United States, and go to Russia where they belong. One gets the feeling that if the Democrats...

"They are not American. They would be more comfortable in the Ukraine, or Russia, but stay away from our country," yelled the bombastic Dean to a wildly cheering and supportive crowd. During President Obama's time in office, eliminationist rhetoric on the part of the left has been deemed acceptable and is rapidly on the rise. Vitriol reaches the highest levels, and the lip service paid to "working together" is belied by the true...

    "Comedian" Al Franken is running for the U.S. Senate seat from Minnesota, this the media is happy to report. But, for some unexplainable reason, the media isn't so interested in reporting Franken's odd behavior. It seems that an ungovernable rage is always just under the surface with Franken, a rage that has several times broken free and resulted in assault and other violent or antisocial behavior. Why the media doesn't highlight this man's unstable behavior can only mean that they are lending him as much cover as they can to assist his campaign. His unprofessional and intemperate language is well-known,...

    As 2014 midterms approach, some Democrats are running-not walking-away from Obamacare....coming out of the woodwork to voice opposition. 39th President Jimmy Carter: "His major accomplishment was Obamacare, and the implementation of it now is questionable at best." Barney Frank, former Massachusetts Congressman: "I think we paid a terrible price for health care." Former Democratic Presidential candidate, Howard Dean, a doctor: "The Affordable Care Act's Rate-Setting Won't Work." Obamacare was primarily designed to decrease the number of uninsured Americans and reduce healthcare costs. But experts say it will have the exact opposite effect.

This is about the individual mandate, he said. The individual mandate was not necessary and its probably a big political thing, and that is going to hurt the Democrats because people dont like to be told what to do by the government no matter what party theyre in. The remarks by Dean are significant because of his position as former DNC chairman, as well as his being a doctor. Dean...

Adding spice to the mix, Mika Brzezinski made clear her great regard for lefty Senator Elizabeth Warren, saying she'd make a "formidable" presidential candidate. The fracas was detonated by a discussion of a Wall Street Journal op-ed by a centrist Dem group called "The Third Way," which argued that following proposals from Warren and...

    First Howard Dean and now Noam Chomsky agreeing with Sarah Palin? In an interview with Democracy Now, the influential MIT linguistics professor, author, and prominent left-wing political activist admitted that Sarah Palin was right about Barack Obama in that there was no substance to his presidential campaign. Palin also recently received validation from former Gov. Howard Dean, a prominent liberal Democrat, about what she termed Obamacare death panels, otherwise known as the Independent Payment Advisory Board. In these latest comments about the president, Chomsky said that I dont usually admire Sarah Palin, but when she was making fun of this...

    National Right To Life News Today ^ | August 8, 2013 | Dave Andrusko
    Last week we ran a story analyzing an op-ed piece that one-time Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean wrote for the Wall Street Journal in which the former Governor of Vermont conceded that the Independent Payment Advisory Board was essentially a health-care rationing body. ObamaCare has been controversial from long before it passed by the narrowest of margins and probably no facet has drawn more critics that the IPAB. National Right to Life laid out the rationing problems that are part and parcel of the IPAB from the very beginning (www.nrlc.org/HealthCareRationing/ObamaHCRationingBasicDOCUMENTATION.pdf). Thus it was helpful that Dean admitted there really was...

    So, I guess that means that Ron Paul isn’t a ‘real’ libertarian either? Huh. Who knew?CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO It’s fascinating to watch this. First of all, lesson number one, for Rand Paul, who is, by the way, not a libertarian. If you believe you ought to be able to tell women what to do with their reproductive rights you are not a libertarian. Lesson number one for Rand Paul, do not take on a guy from Jersey. Obviously this guy does not watch HBO, and, you know, you’re not going to win a fight like this with...
  • Howard Dean: Rand Paul's No Libertarian Because He's Pro-Life

    In one fell swoop, Howard Dean has managed to expose his ignorance of libertarianism while making a stale and insulting joke about New Jerseyites. Discussing on today's Morning Joe the dust-up between Rand Paul and Chris Christie and the broader issue of the philosophical rifts within the GOP, Dean declared that "Rand Paul is not a libertarian" because he is pro-life. Dean is apparently unaware of the lively debate over abortion within libertarian circles, with a reported 30% of libertarians being pro-life. Dean also warned Paul: "do not take on a guy from Jersey. Obviously this guy does not watch...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)PALIN: Well, you know, it wasn't just me saying there were death panels in Obamacare back in 2010, I mean anybody who could read could read into that, it's a faceless bureaucratic panel that will decide based on a human being's level of productivity, a subjective and political decision being made as to whether they deserve medical care or not. Yes, that little girl is a prime example of a bureaucrat being able to make that decision. It's a scary thing. HANNITY: And now even Howard Dean is acknowledging this. Howard Dean? What did you make of the op-ed that...
  • Howard Dean Admits Obamacare Includes Death Panels, Wants Them Repealed

    Life News ^ | Steven Ertelt
    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...

    On Friday, MSNBCs Melissa Harris-Perry put forth a theory as to why Detroit inevitably went bankrupt terminal lack of government. Well do our best to explain. While discussing Detroits downfall, Harris-Perry and former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean agreed that youve got to have a government to run the place. Harris-Perry noted Detroits declining population, and in turn its tax base. The population of the city has declined dramatically over the last 10 years. Mediaites Noah Rothman, who calls the MSNBC hosts assessment delusional, provides some analysis and facts: Harris-Perry presents this fact as though former Detroit residents left ...

    Hillary Clinton's apparently inevitable victory in the Democratic presidential primaries could hit a roadblock due to her age, former White House candidate Howard Dean says. "She's of my generation, not of the new upcoming generation out of the Barack Obama generation," said the former Vermont governor who was, for a time, front-runner for his party's nomination in 2004. "That's the only weakness she's really got." Dean told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that he believes Clinton, who will be 69 by the 2016 election, will face a primary battle and not be crowned as nominee. He said Govs. Martin O'Malley of Maryland...

    Howard Dean, the former Vermont governor who electrified anti-war liberals during the 2004 presidential race, said Thursday he would consider another run for the White House a statement that will surely be met with mixed reaction in the Democratic Party.
  • Howard Dean: National Review's Rich Lowry a 'Right-wing Nutcase'

    When it comes to identifying nutcases, some might say that Howard Dean gleans valuable experience daily, while shaving. The failed presidential candidate put his expertise to dubious use on Morning Joe today, calling National Review editor Rich Lowry a "right-wing nutcase." Lowry's sin? Having written a column mocking Eric Holder, and President Obama's decision to put Holder in charge of investigating himself in the James Rosen affair. View the video here.
