Dean Delusional In D.C.
At the Take Back America Conference held in Washington D.C., this week, Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean came up with some real doozies. Here are some samples of his delusional, delirious diatribe:
While Dean was speaking about some of the long lines voters, both Republicans and Democrats, faced in the last election, Dean seemed to think that Republicans could endure the long lines better than Democrats and said this:
Republicans can do that better because a lot of them have never made an honest living in their lives.
(Note to Howard Dean: This from the party of John Kerry, Al Gore, Bill Clinton, Jay Rockefeller and Teddy Kennedy?!)
We've suffered a couple of serious defeats, but we're energized because we know that our vision for America is much better than the dark, difficult and dishonest vision that the Republican Party offers America.
(Note to Howard Dean: It would be helpful if you would tell us what your vision is if you have one. Seems to me that you lost the last Presidential election because your candidate kept saying he had a plan that was better than Bush's but would never tell us exactly what it was.)
and in reference to the ethics investigation of Tom DeLay, Dean said:
We need to get rid of the culture of corruption and abuse of power in Washington.
(Note to Howard Dean: I understand that taking trips paid for by lobbyists is not the right thing for Congressmen to do. It seems most of the trips Congressmen take are nothing more than glorified vacations and should all be eliminated. If the trip DeLay took was paid for by lobbyist with DeLay's knowledge, he should be reprimanded and made to pay for it with his own money. Frankly, all the 'fact-finding' trips should be eliminated unless approved by some type of oversight committee. However, I really don't think that trips taken by Congressmen are the biggest problem we have with corruption and abuse of power in Washington. It seems to me that the Democratic Senators’ filibusters that are holding up the business of the nation are a far worse abuse of power.)
