Skip to comments.Republicans Are Obstructing King's Dream, [Howard] Dean Says

On the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean accused President Bush and other Republicans of abandoning the civil rights movement and the call of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to fight poverty.
"As we mark this anniversary, we should remember the words of Dr. Martin Luther King and others who spoke on the Mall in Washington some 43 years ago calling on each one of us as individuals and our nation to honor our obligation to one another as part of the American community," Dean said in a statement.
"We have a long way to go in ensuring the dream that Dr. King spoke of some 43 years ago, and Republicans' misplaced priorities are not getting us closer to making that dream a reality," Dean said.
The Democrats' message to residents of the Gulf Coast still rebuilding after the devastating storm is that "we have not and we will not forget you. We will work hard to ensure the Gulf Coast has the resources needed to rebuild its communities," he said.
Did Howie make this speech in front of the hotel service and housekeeping staff? :-P
There are more black bears than black people in Howard Dean's Vermont.
DESPICABLE! If it were not for republicans there would be no civil rights act, the best kept secret in the country.
What does a hurricane have to do with the civil rights movement? Did I blink and miss Governor Ho-Ho's explanation?
You are really annoying. Go get a productive job.
Dear Howie Dipstick,
Your dear pals Bill and Hillary were co-presidents for 8 years. What exactly did they ever accomplish????
Way off his meds again I see.
2000 Census: 3,053 black people in Vermont

The Democratic Party - the longest-running minstrel show in America.
That boy's nuttier than a squirrel turd.
Good movie though the novel was MUCH better as Sean Penn and Tim Robbins NEVER entered my mind while reading. *Rolleyes*
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
Judging people by their character is what Republicans stand for. Judging people by their skin color is precisely what the Democrats want to perpetuate.

Mama Like! :)
"There are more black bears than black people in Howard Dean's Vermont."
