Howard Dean: Women, Latinos "terrified" of GOP
CBSNews.com ^ | May 5, 2012 | Leigh Ann Caldwell

Posted on 05/06/2012 11:05:58 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

(CBS News) Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean said Sunday that the policies promoted by the Republican Party have women and Latinos "terrified."

"Women are terrified of what the Republicans are talking about. They're talking about basically stripping away their ability to have insurance pay for their birth control pills," Dean said on "Face the Nation." "Latinos are terrified of the Republicans, because they seem to have a total tin ear when it comes to the basic needs of treating people with dignity.

"For Michele Bachmann to go on there and claim that women are going to vote for Mitt Romney is perfectly ridiculous," Dean said, referring to the Republican congresswoman who also appeared on "Face the Nation" Sunday.

Dean also suggested that "the average American thinks that Mitt Romney doesn't care about them. Here's a guy who's building, during a campaign, a mansion in Malibu with an elevator for his car," Dean said to Bob Schieffer. "He had a Swiss bank account and he invests in the Cayman Islands. I don't think we've ever elected a president who has invested in the Cayman Islands as a tax dodge before.

"This candidacy is a shipwreck", Dean said, "and for Michele Bachmann to go on there and claim that woman are going to vote for Mitt Romney is perfectly ridiculous."

That’s what ole Howie & the dems think of their group of voters - dependence on & of the state. Of course they have sucked these idiots into believing such. Again just be reminded of Alexander Tyler.

60 Minutes looked at his Cayman investments and concluded Romney paid exactly the same amount of taxes as he would have had the money stayed in the U.S. The directors did it to avoid shyster lawyers and lousy tort laws.

There is a point which Dean said is true, espcially here in Mexifornia. You almost cannot find a non-white Pubbie’. One of my best buds is a Filipino right-winger and extremely rare: he hates liberals more than I do. Makes most Freepers sound like DU forum trolls.

But the difference is that he’s independent-thinking and is not “shamed” that being rich makes you guilty, which is how liberals condition you in the media. The rest of them are just idiots.

Oh my goodness! The HORROR of not having someone else pay for birth control pills!! It's sure to break the bank of every woman in America and parts of Canada and Mexico!

And the Mexicans are never treated with the dignity they deserve for their behavior and demeanor here!! The HORROR!!

He’s been on CNBC a fair amount. He always when being interviewed tries to come across as this middle of the road guy,sure the other persons opinion has merit but always manages to toss out a bomb like in this article that totally distorts reality. He sets it up that way so that his idiocy appears to be common sense. It never is.

I think it’s funny that some RATS still think Howie is some sort of authority on anything.

“Latinos are terrified of the Republicans, because they seem to have a total tin ear when it comes to the basic needs of treating people with dignity.”


Really... Interesting... Hmmmm... I guess the Democrat idea of treating people is to treat them as “interest groups” and not as individuals who have their own individual dignity. But then individuals are much harder to work with, the democrats are inherently lazy and only want to deal with large homogenous groups that lend themselves to central planning.

As for myself I will still deal with people on an individual basis with the result that some of them I’ll like, some I won’t and most of them will be the kind I’ll ignore as they just want to be left alone and not be bothered.

What has free birth control pills got to do with dignity.

If you had any dignity you would sp[end the 20 bucks a month and buy your own.

The shape of things to come.

When are those who repeatedly recite the mantras, “We have to make the Republican party more attractive to Latinos! We have to make the Republican party more attractive to blacks!”
.... finally going to wake up?

I think there is an old and wise quote for Republicans when it comes to the world of Howard Dean: “Never take the advice of those that want to see you fail.”

Defining terms helps in any discussion.
“Women”: middle-aged students dating millionaires needing free birth control
“Latinos”: illegal alien deadbeats wishing to suckle at Uncle Sam’s withered teats

The funny thing about the birth control issue is... you would think the insurance companies would be tripping over themselves to give their customers free birth control... so they wouldn't have to pay for the delivery of a baby instead.

If anyone knows the definition of ‘terrified’, it’s Howie Dean who, as Governor of VT, was scared stiff to appear outside Montpelier or Burlington without his ‘security squad’. Come on back to the Field Days this summer Ho-Ho, and don’t forget your signature ‘deer-in-the-headlights’ look.

Terrified! Horrified!

It's time that Republicans started slipping words like this in their rhetoric.

How about talking about how Democrats have enslaved workers?

Dean:"[Republicans] are talking about basically stripping away the ability to have their insurance pay for their birth control pills."

Even if that were completely true, why the heck can't the female private citizen in this country have the freedom to choose a health insurance policy which covers what's worth protecting and reduces the premium by not covering expenses she can handle herself? Ah, yes, for lefties like Dean, you must do as Big Brother mandates!

It'll be interesting to see how much screaming we'll get out of our friend Howard when and if the SCOTUS decides the Obamacare individual mandate to be unconstitutional.

Is Romney building a mansion in Malibu with an elevator for his car, as Dean is claiming? Or is Dean concocting that one out of thin air? Malibu doesn't seem like the kind of place where any prominent Republican, even a "moderate", would want to hang out. Why would he want lefties like Barbara Streisand as neighbors?

It’s in La Jolla, not Malibu. To an Easterner like Dean, it’s all the same. :)

I think he’s actually building it near San Diego. Howard Dean was simply wrong about the town.

Dean is right about Romney’s campaign being a shipwreck, though.

I'm not a big Romney fan, but the truth of the matter is that a good number of political pundits, such as Dick Morris, would strongly disagree.

There are those duped establishment Republicans who repeatedly recite the mantra, “We have to make the Republican party more attractive to Latinos! and more attractive to blacks!......."

You got that right.

Everytime Republicans suckup to hyphenates---America and Americans get royally screwed.

Bush got duped by the hyphenated neocons---the pukeneos duped Bush into pouring trillions af dollars and oceans of young blood into countless corrupt Mideast hellholes.

Once they got into the party, the hyphenated pukes began kicking social conservatives to the curb. So/cons were no longer welcome.....the stupid pukes advanced their hidden agenda unimpeded.

Ask yourself this. How much safer and financially stable would America be without the screwy hyphenates AND stupid pukeneos in our midst?
