    Denver was granted critical time to settle an 11th hour labor beef that could sink its 2008 Democratic National Convention bid when Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean announced today that he'll delay picking whether Denver or New York City host the event until after New Years. The announcement came as top state political leaders, including Gov.-elect Bill Ritter, U.S. Sen. Ken Salazar and Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, scrambled to iron out a labor dispute with the Pepsi Center before it sinks Denver’s bid. The hang up is that the local stagehands' union is among labor groups that need to sign...

    Dear Jim, This is it: crunch time for getting the slanderous ABC television docudrama "The Path to 9/11" yanked off the air. The network schedule has this slanderous attack on Democrats slated to start on Sunday night, September 10, at 8 o'clock -- and as long as it stays on the schedule, we have work to do. Take a minute right now and tell Disney president Robert Iger to keep this right-wing propaganda off our airwaves: http://www.democrats.org/pathto911 Here's the good news: the suits at ABC and the Walt Disney Company have started panicking under pressure, thanks to your ferocious response...
  • A Despicable, Irresponsible Fraud (Path to 9/11)

    (DNC Executive Director, Tom McMahon, sent the following email to Democrats across the country today.) Dear Fellow Democrat, Does a major national broadcast network want to stain itself by presenting an irresponsible, slanderous, fraudulent, "docu-drama" to the American public? Not if you and I have the last word -- but either way, we're about to find out. The ABC television network -- a cog in the Walt Disney empire -- unleashed a promotional blitz in the last week for a new "docudrama" called "The Path to 9/11". ABC has thrown its corporate might behind the two-night production, and bills it...

For five years now, Democrats have urged the Bush White House and Republican Congress to establish measures to bring the terrorists to justice but President Bush has stubbornly decided to go-it-alone. Democrats want to aggressively fight the war...

    AFP ^ | September 4 2006
    MADRID, Sept 4, 2006 (AFP) - US Democratic Party chief Howard Dean and possible French Socialist presidential candidate Segolene Royal will attend a conference organised by Spain's ruling Socialists in mid-September. It will be the first time that the head of the Democrats will attend such a conference, Jose Blanco of the Socialist (PSOE) party said. Dean, a vocal opponent of the US invasion of Iraq, serves as chairman of the Democratic National Committee and ran to be the party's presidential nominee in 2004, losing the candidacy to John Kerry.
  • Howard Dean is Destroying the Democratic Party

    Howard Dean is Destroying the Democratic Party Which is in theory a good thing, but can make for a very unbalanced American political system over the next 20 years as non-GOPers grope for a new Party to challenge the GOP for power. The latest indicator of the Dean-led Democratic melt down comes from Robert Novak (4th item): Lifetime Democratic contributors have made good on their threat to stop giving money to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) so long as Howard Dean is its chairman. Some of the party's longtime money men warned that would happen when Dean took over the...

    Lifetime Democratic contributors have made good on their threat to stop giving money to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) so long as Howard Dean is its chairman. Some of the party's longtime money men warned that would happen when Dean took over the DNC following the 2004 elections. Lower contributions, combined with Dean's heavy spending, have resulted in the most recent cash-on-hand report by the DNC of $11.3 million, compared with $43.6 million at the Republican National Committee.

    Democratss have been leading in the polls for months now, but that doesn't mean everyone in the party is feeling so comfortable about their chances of regaining the House in November. Rahm Emanuel, the Chicago congressman in charge of getting House Democrats elected, has already been in a months-long feud with Howard Dean, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, complaining that Dean isn't spending enough of the DNC's money on this year's congressional races. But now Emanuel is expanding his fight with other groups in his own party, blasting George Soros and MoveOn.org, two key sources of campaign cash...

    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...

    Great expectations "Concern is rising among Democrats that party leaders could tear each other apart if the party fails to take control of the House or Senate in November," U.S. News & World Report says in its White House Week column. "Expectations are especially high about winning the House, and one adviser to Bill Clinton says if the Democrats fail, it could result in party leaders forming a 'circular firing squad.' Specifically, Democratic defeat could quickly undermine the leadership positions of Democratic National Chairman Howard Dean and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi."

    Asked if he's satisfied with George Allen's apology: "I served with George Allen when he was governor. I don't think he belongs in public service, to be honest with you. There are Republicans who are capable and smart, thoughtful people, and he's not one of them" (MSNBC, 8/23).

The president distorted the Democratic position on the war and national security, using the politics of fear to distract from...

This stunning reversal comes after years of work by the President and his top surrogates and strategists to smear anyone who disagrees with the President or challenges his policies.

    Washington Post ^ | Tuesday, August 15, 2006 | E. J. Dionne Jr
    Talk to Democrats at every level about the strong position the party is in for this fall's elections and the conversation inevitably ends with a variation of: "Yeah, if we don't blow it." Karl Rove's greatest victory is how much he has spooked Democrats about themselves. This, in turn, leads to a problem among political elites and, especially, fundraisers: While Republicans believe in their party and in the cause of building its organization from bottom to top, Democratic sympathizers tend to focus on favorite causes and favorite candidates, notably in presidential years. If you understand this, you can understand the...

    Lieberman should drop out of election race: Dean 11 minutes ago U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman (news, bio, voting record) should bow out of the November's congressional race altogether after his defeat in Connecticut's Democratic primary, a top Democrat said on Sunday. Lieberman, a three-term senator and Democratic vice presidential nominee in 2000, lost to political newcomer Ned Lamont in Connecticut on Tuesday and said he plans to run as an independent in the November election. Howard Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said Lieberman should support his party -- and Lamont -- rather than running against him to defeat...

In an act of desperation, national Republicans resorted to divisive propaganda in the wake of yesterday's primaries. Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean issued the following response to the most recent Republican spin: "Republicans can try to spin their propaganda, but the truth...

    WASHINGTON (UPI) -- Democrats are creating campaigns to win control of the U.S. House of Representatives because they say the national party leadership is inept, aides say. U.S. Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., plans to ask lawmakers and donors to help fund a new voter-turnout program run by House Democrats, The Washington Post reports. "I am not waiting for anyone anymore who said they were going to" build a turnout operation, Emanuel said. "It has got to be done." He and other Democrats believe Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean has his priorities mixed up, Democratic aides tell the Post. Dean...

    The two major political parties have raised a combined $695 million for federal office elections this campaign cycle through June 30, according to a report released Monday by the Federal Election Commission. Predictably, the Republicans — who control the White House, both chambers of Congress and a narrow majority of governorships — outraised the Democrats. The report, which analyzed campaign finance activity over the first 18 months of the 2005-06 cycle, showed that Republican Party committees at the federal, state and local level have raised $405.7 million (58 percent of the two-party total) in strictly regulated “hard” money, compared to...
