Fla. -- Democratic presidential candidates flocked to a Walt Disney World resort here yesterday, seeking to tap into the pain of the 2000 election and denounce the administration it installed, enthralling state party convention delegates who seemed happiest when jeering the GOP and President Bush.

The headlines on the Arizona Republic's Sunday paper was "No favorite for Arizona Dems" they've only got about 2 months before our primary and no one has a clue for whom to pick and the frontrunner against Bush - HA! That's because they're all LOSERS! Bush will win BIG in Arizona!

whaaaaa, whaaaaa, whaaaa. This is actually getting embarrassing. Is this really the type of debate those seeking the Presidency really want to have? Ans since it was Albore who initiated the whole Florida fiasco, just how did Bush "plan" to steal the election? I guess besides being just evil he can also predict the future and lay battle plans based on known enemies moves before they even contemplate them.

'That is not the only fake turkey in this administration,'' said former Vermont governor Howard Dean.

Can someone please get Ditsy Dean a brain cell or two? Does he really mean to say Bush wants to be "a stupid, foolish, or inept person" (quoting m-w.com).

His "insult" boils down to: Bush is trying to be a stupid person but everyone knows he's just faking it.

More wit from the perfessor!

My 19 year old wants to know who bought this man's way through college and med school. Doesn't see this man as being smart enough to be a doctor.

Disney World seems an appropriate venue. Fantasyland, no doubt.

''George W. Bush has become one of the most polarizing and divisive figures in American history.''

Actually I would say that X42 and the DNC deliberately led America on a divisive path. They played up class and race envy. "Talk radio" threatened the safety of America (the biggest national security threat was taken to be domestic kooks and not global terrorists). Somehow we are in a world where people who are political commentators full time are considered "entertainers" and not to be taken seriously yet actors and singers should be taken seriously and not insulted when they lecture Americans about Iraq.

''After masterminding the debacle in December 2000, taking the presidency through the assistance of the United States Supreme Court and a former secretary of state ... George W. Bush has become one of the most polarizing and divisive figures in American history.''

Settle down Beavis. I mean Wesley.

You're a disgrace.

My apologies for piggy-backing on your thread, Tumble. Just a brief announcement that it's critically important for all Florida freepers to go to our state chapter forum and read the postings there regarding re-organization of the Florida chapter.

You can bring up the state forum by going to your profile page and clicking on the Florida flag.

Thanks,

Leni/MinuteGal

Do the democrats actually have a message to get out? Not that I care, but all that is heard from them is an incessant drone of hate towars our President. Perhaps this is enough 'substance' to vote on if you're a liberal...

Frightening as well is that these libs endorse Dean, a socialist.

"...General Wesley K. Clark to cheers from the crowd, estimated at 3,000, ''George W. Bush has become one of the most polarizing and divisive figures in American history..."

I think the Democratic Party in its' entireity has been the most polarizing force in recet American history. Gen. Clark apparently has adopted these rules of engagement as well.

...and jokes from several presidential hopefuls riffing on reports -- later proved false -- that the turkey Bush held during a surprise troop visit in Iraq was a fake (''That is not the only fake turkey in this administration,'' said former Vermont governor Howard Dean)

I guess that they are going to have to supress that military vote in Florida again. The Rats just don't know when to quit. The troops loved President Bush's Thanksgiving visit to Iraq and several Freepers and Freepers families have posted messages/emails accounting his visit. (Yes that is right, some FReepers were there).

All of this crying from a group of people completely shut out of state politics.

The Eagles have a song about all this.If the Democrats even want to dream about challenging the GOP next the need to "Get over it" and find some issues that matter, and not some made up issues..

Well, his parents certainly had the money and connections. The media often talks about the fact that GWB's parents were rich but almost never brings up the fact that Dean's family was extremely wealthy as well.

He has about as much credibility on the subject of populism as silver-spoon Al Gore.

The media also persisted in calling George W. Bush "George Bush Jr." when Albert Gore was actually "Albert Gore Junior" (and his Senator dad had tried and failed to get the Presidential ticket in the 1950s).

Very true. "Junior" doesn't mean anything either way but it is indicative that the media would be biased on such an insignificant issue.

Sounds like another outbreak of "Hoof in Mouth Disease".

Would someone please notify the Center For Disease Control. If the nation acts now, this outbreak can be contained by November, 2004.

Is it just me, or is the near constant presence of the shade of George McGovern presaging a repeat of DemDebacles past? Their platform, mostly nursing real and perceived grievances, is the platform of a party with nothing to offer.

They may indeed be shouting (sic) themselves in the foot.

I am old enough to remember that race but I wasn't paying attention then.


All I know is that if you haven't learned anything from history, you will be cursed to relive it.

It was back in the sixties. George McGovern, and in 1968 (you may have heard of the 'police riot' at the Chicago convention), Eugene McCarthy dragged large hunks of the democratic party to the left. Humphrey lost to Nixon.

McGovern is poster boy for the far left dems, the ones who lose and lose big. His spirit is wafting around the upcoming election.
