Skip to comments.Dean's Democrats Step In It Again

Democrats will be hard pressed to deny their extremism as long as they have mad Howard Dean as their party spokesman. Then again, cashiering Dean wouldn't solve all their problems on that front either, given their leadership's propensity to take the wrong side on important national security issues.
On the day Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki was addressing a joint meeting of Congress seeking America's continued support for Iraq, Dean said, "The Iraqi prime minister's an anti-Semite. We don't need to spend $200 and $300 and $500 billion bringing democracy in Iraq to turn it over to people who believe that Israel doesn't have a right to defend itself and who refuse to condemn Hezbollah."
These are interesting words, coming from a man whom Sen. Joseph Lieberman attacked during the Democratic primary campaign in 2003 for saying, "it's not our place to take sides," in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Dean later tried to squirm out of his comment -- he even tried to blame Karl Rove for launching an e-mail campaign to circulate his problematic statement -- but there was no way he could erase his utterances.
Dean's hypocrisy aside, what about other Democratic leaders? Surely they are standing solidly behind the democratically elected Iraqi leader. Think again.

Let Dean remain where he is. :)
Lil' Howie realizes Bush is doing the right thing by Jewish voters (whether they appreciate him for it or not) by strongly supporting Israel, but he's not man enough to come forward and say "Let Democrats attack me for it, but the President is right to be doing what he is doing by supporting Israel."
It has to be all attack, all the time with this asshole. He can't put our interests and the interests of our allies ahead of politics--not once. Can't do it.
The Democrats haven't the right to even ASK for political power in this country if they're unwilling to put their party interest aside even in times like those in which we're living. They are charlatans and ignorant children whose intellectual horizons begin with the whine and end with the insult.
I don't know how Rove landed Dean his current post but, I'm all for it.
Oh yes yes yes yes...what on earth will we do for material when Howlin' Howie's retired?
Dean is our best weapon against the demorats.
Need to run a video of the key parts of Howard's speech in a GOP TV election ad.
