Howard Dean, on the record


We can always count on Howard Dean for the money quote, and he seldom disappoints. Dean was in rare form today in a conference call with nutroots bloggers.

Here are a few key excerpts …

“We now have a president who is all about empowerment and bringing people together instead of a president who wants to be president of the half of the America that agrees with him.”

Agreement is an act which requires the willing participation of both parties. The Democrat position, with the rare exception of a few weeks after the 9/11 attacks, has been to oppose every initiative of the Bush Administration. Obama is not even president yet. Half the country doesn’t agree with him, and a large part of the other half doesn’t know anything about him.

You know, one of the fun parts about my campaign is that we could throw a little bomb from time to time and say outrageous things. Well you can’t do that when you’re governing and you’ve got to reach out to everybody including people sometimes you won’t want to work with.

Gee, what a guy. Reach out all you want, Howard. But, don’t be surprised when a few “little bombs or outrageous comments” come your way. As you say, that’s the fun part of being the opposition party.

This is the big test for us. Now we have a president. There’s no excuse for voting for stuff that you don’t think is in the best interest of the country anymore, for not standing up for what you believe.

This one statement is the single greatest indictment of the behavior of the democrats in Congress for the last eight years that I can think of. It is the reason that Conservatives will not give Obama the benefit of the doubt. It is the reason that the Obama Presidency is doomed to failure.

Thanks for going on the record Howard.
