Howard Dean backs Obama on Syria (video)
The Hill ^ | September 4, 2013 | Julian Pecquet

Posted on 09/04/2013 9:49:11 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

Former DNC chairman Howard Dean supports President Obama's call for a punitive military strike against Syria.

“Thus far I fully support the president, including his going to Congress,” Dean said in an email to The Hill.

The comments from the standard-bearer of the anti-war left during the 2004 campaign could help Obama gain more support among Democrats for votes next week in the House and Senate on his request.

In the House in particular, Obama is likely to have to count on a strong Democratic vote.

Dean's support for punishing Bashar Assad's regime for its alleged use of chemical weapons is particularly noteworthy because the former Vermont governor was the most prominent Iraq war critic during the run-up to the 2003 invasion.

“What I want to know,” Dean said in his opening line at the California State Democratic Convention in March 2003, “is what in the world so many Democrats are doing supporting the president's unilateral intervention in Iraq?”(continued)

Howard Dean backs Obama on Syria

So "Sceamin' Dean" wants to go to war?!

Well, this is making it pretty obvious. Republicans support going to war when there are clear national interests at stake and objectives are clearly set out.

Democrats support going to war only when it "feels good", there are no national interests or clear objectives, and it will advance those who are trying to destroy Western Civilization.

LOL, yeah!
Someone needs to make a video game mod where Dean hasthat as his single line of dialogue.
Player character: “What is our mission for today?”
Dean: “YEEEEEaaaaaAARRRGH!”
Player character: “I’m not sure I understand.”
Dean: “YeeeeeEEEAAAArgh!”
Plyaer character: “Umm.. I think i’ll go fight dragons or something now.”
Dean: “YEEEEEEaaaaAAARgh!”

That’s not news.

News would be Howard Dean NOT backing a democrat president on something.

The Dean NPC would have bugged out eyes and be showing lots of teeth.
Which game though.
Skyrim.
HAS to be Skyrim.
Have the Dean NPC get into a shouting match with a cast iron pot.

I can almost picture a Dungeons and Dragons module.
But the Dungeon Master would go hoarse....
Bad Idea Generated.
It’d be a punishment module for DMs.

Once again I have to sroll back up to the top to see if it’s satire. Surely SOME of the voters who still worship obama can see the hypocracy. Then again....
