Weird Howard's At It Again  

Monday, May 23, 2005

Frizzen Sparks brought this one up. I don't watch the Sunday morning shows. They always seem to bring out some loudmouth commie with an ax to grind against the President, or someone who wants to decimate the Constitution while saying they're trying to save it. It's always bullshit.

But THIS is an absolute gem. Howard Dean goes on Meet the Press and does and says ALL of the following in ONE interview:

  • That there is a huge percentage of nominations that have been confirmed without intereference from the Donks.
  • That privatization of Socialist Security is a bad thing.
  • That changing Senate rules to disallow filibusters on otherwise electable nominations will somehow lead to constitutional filibusters being done away with as well.
  • That he actually believes that it's better when political parties share power, and that it's better when people whose candidates did not win get to have a say.
  • That the President actually blocks people who disagree with him from attending his town meetings.
  • That there is widespread corruption in the Republican Party (which may or may not be true, but remember, this is HOWARD DEAN talking).
  • Asserts that the Republicans are worse than the Donks when it comes to taking large campaign contributions and rewarding those who give them.
  • Accuses the Administration of paying journalists to write positive articles about unpopular policies and allowing lobbyists to sell access, with no facts to back up his dribble.
  • Makes the presumptious argument that being under investigation was the same thing as being convicted, then says he's not prejudging anyone.
  • Without any real evidence of wrongdoing on the part of Tom DeLay, states that it is inappropriate that he be in Congress (I'm sure it was fine with Howie that a man who had been held in contempt of court for perjury could stay in the White House, though).
  • That Bill Clinton actually balanced the budget without being forced to by a conservative congress.
  • That it is inappropriate to speak of impeaching judges that refuse to protect human life.
  • Reiterates that people being in control of their own money (e.g. private accounts) is a horrible thing.
  • Says the President should stop approaching issues from an ideological point of view (as if old Howie weren't guilty of the same thing every day).
  • Assrts that raising taxes would be a better idea than anything that the President would be willing to accept.
  • Reiterates (AGAIN!) that people being in control of their own money (e.g. private accounts) is a horrible thing.
  • Here's the biggest whopper in the whole thing: But the thing that really bothered me the most, which the 9-11 Commission said also wasn't true, is the insinuation that the president continues to make to this day that Osama bin Laden had something to do with supporting terrorists that attacked the United States. That is false.
  • That John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, and Joe Lieberman got their information about the threat posed by Saddam Hussein from the President.
  • Actually tries to justify hate-filled comments he made with regard to Republicans by saying that Republicans have no right to voice their opinions.
  • After all the unsubstantiated "ethics" lecturing he does with regard to Tom DeLay, actually says, "We ought not to lecture each other about our ethical shortcomings."
  • Actually asserts that there are "pretty strong moral values" in the Democratic Party.
  • Asserts that the Republicans FORCED the Donks into having to defend abortion.
  • Starts his answer to a question regarding his nastiness surrounding the Terri Schiavo case with another personal attack on Tom DeLay and "On the Terri Schiavo case, first of all we have to remember these are human beings."
  • Implies that the Republicans were more of a threat to "libertarianism of individualism" than the Donks.
  • You know, I care about values a lot.
  • Calls avowed socialist Bernie Sanders a "populist".

Is there any question as to why conservatives believe this man is good for the cause of Freedom in America?
