Dean Calls For End To Divisiveness

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Down with divisiveness was the message Wednesday delivered by Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean as he told a group of Florida business leaders that Republican policies of deceit and finger-pointing are tearing Americans apart.

He then called Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki an "anti-Semite" and said Rep. Senate candidate Katherine Harris was a 'crook' and compared her to Stalin.

Howie is The Man when it comes to calling the kettle black.

I think our friends in Congress need to start observing Moratorium Monday, but certain rules would apply every day.

* Any PKB = your replacement gets voted in next primary, no exceptions.

That's how it SHOULD work anyway, but people listen more to campaign commercials than to what these asshats are actually saying in their spare time.

yes, its too bad that the person with the most money is usually the winner.

it's all about money and name recognition. voters are so uninformed that when they get to the polling booth they pull the lever down for the name they recognize, not the person who will do the best job. just having the last name Kennedy is enough for most politicians, even if they arent related to the boozing Kennedy clan.

Howard Dean called for an end to divisiveness, that is, an end to accusatory blame shifting. What Dean does here is clearly pointing a finger at what he considers wrongdoing, but it is not devisive in that it doesnt set any group against any other group.
al-Maliki clearly made what fox news considered anti-semitic statements in support of hezbollah, I didnt see it to be so much anti-semitic as anti israeli govt, but to many there is no difference, even if it is just many idiots who cant seperate religion from politics.

As for Harris, it's bad enough she refused the florida recount by only allowing certain districts to be recounted and cuasing such a mess of the elections that hte supreme court had to decide it, which makes it an appontment and not en election... but she also happens to have taken money from the same contractor who bribed duke cunningham, and has already been found guilty of it.

Niether of those comments was divisive, both were specific and tartgeted at what he considered wrongdoing by indiviiduals. Had he instead said all iraqi's are anti-semites and all republicans are crooks you would then have a divisive comment.

Instead of getting all pissy when you dont understand a word I suggest checking out www.dictionary.com

"As for Harris, it's bad enough she refused the florida recount by only allowing certain districts to be recounted and cuasing such a mess of the elections that hte supreme court had to decide it,"

wasnt her decision, Joe. She was only following the letter of the law. Gore only wanted certain districts recounted too. And he tried hard to disallow the overseas military ballots over a technicality. Everybody loves the letter of the law when its in their favor.

Howard Dean is fantastic. He's refreshing and down to earth - not a political cog. Dean, Gore and ex-Pres Jimmy Carter do amazing work behind the scenes for humanity - they see an injustice and they take a stand. I'd like to see Dean or Gore make it to the top office - I think they have enough experience with how things really work in Washington and wouldn't be corrupted by the machine. My 2 cents.

It's very telling who the democraps choose for their cheerleaders... John Dean, Cindy Sheehan, Al Gore... all certifiably crazy in their own demented way.

Kathryn Harris, God bless her, has made a mess of her election bid and as unfortunate as it is poses little threat to the democrap she is running against. That said, she is a patriot, Howard Dean is not. The man is a shameless shill with an attack dog mentality. In other words he's the perfect mouthpiece for today's democrappic party.

Wow, I see you're fighting the good fight to end the divisiveness.

Good job!*

I'm all for the divisiveness.

Thats such a liberal myth, 'divisiveness'.

This country has ALWAYS been divided 50-50. No president wins with 60-70% of the vote. (maybe the electoral but not popular vote).

Where did this 'group think' mentality come from that says we must all be on the same page or we are divided?

Darnit I was so disappointed. I liked Howard until the anti-Semite comment. Now I'm not so sure about him.

Of course there's going to be different ways of thinking - people just don't need to be assholes about it. Hence...
