    Republican National Committee chairman Ed Gillespie blasted Democratic presidential frontrunner Howard Dean on Friday for suggesting that President Bush may have been warned in advance about the 9/11 attacks. "It's breathtaking that someone running for president in either party would float the notion that the president of the United States would have had prior information and knowledge of what was to come on Sept. 11 and did not act on it," the top Republican told radio host Laura Ingraham. "It is astounding to me," Gillespie added. "It's unbelievable, the kind of things that Howard Dean is willing to say." During...
  • Howard Dean Welcomes Endorsement from Anti-American Traitor Ted Rall!

    From Howard Dean's official campaign blog... Rall: Howard Dean for President Ted Rall, in his Universal Press Syndicate column today, explains why so many third party voters are coming to Dean: Howard Dean has the best chance to beat Bush. Brilliant, aggressive and moneyed... Dr. Dean has a corner on the single most important issue to Americans: health care. His politics are surprisingly centrist... He's got traditional Democratic constituents (he just stole the biggest AFL-CIO union's endorsement away from Gephardt) and fresh new ones (twentysomething bloggers have mailed him $25 million in crisp twenties). Dean's got lots more going for...
  • Statement by Governor Dean on the California Recall ("It's All About Bush, whiiiiine!")

    10/07/2003 8:46:28 PM PDT · by Timesink · 54 replies · 284+ views
    Statement by Governor Dean on the California Recall"Today's recall election in California was not about Gray Davis or Arnold Schwarzenegger. This recall was about the frustration so many people are feeling about the way things are going. All across America, George Bush's massive tax cuts for the wealthy are undermining state budgets, causing cutbacks in services and increases in local property taxes. Were recalls held in every state, it's quite possible that 50 governors would find themselves paying the price for one president's ruinous national economic policies. Tonight the voters in California directed their frustration with the country's direction on...

    In an effort to assist FReepers in keeping tabs on the embarassing revelations coming out daily about the leading Democratic duo, I've established and applied keywords to help us index all these stories and articles for easy reference later. Remember the time Dean said "we can't always have the strongest military" and sung the praises of teenagers having abortions, but didn't bookmark the thread? Now you can find it by using these easily remembered keywords. For Clark, use MARYHELP. For Dean, use HATREDPOWEREDHOWARD. We need your help in keeping this index as accurate and up-to-date as possible, which means adding...

    September 22, 2003, 8:43 a.m. Dean and the Fundamentalists What the doctor gets away with. By John J. Pitney Jr. Imagine a major presidential candidate saying: "I want my country back! We want our country back! I am tired of being divided! I don't want to listen to the priests and rabbis anymore." Across the political spectrum, people would immediately denounce that candidate as a bigot. Pundits would draw comparisons to the Know-Nothings. There would be calls for an apology, if not a withdrawal from the race. And the words would haunt the candidate forever. Now substitute "fundamentalist preachers" for...

    BOSTON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential hopeful Howard Dean invoked Boston's revolutionary legacy on Tuesday as he urged Americans to dump their latter-day "king" -- George W. Bush -- whom he accused of threatening democracy and caring only for the very rich. In a speech to thousands of supporters, Dean said next year's election was about protecting American democracy from "a narrow band of right-wing ideologues" who were trampling the U.S. Constitution

    Editor's Note: This is the second in a series of profiles on the Democratic presidential candidates. Washington, DC ( -- The Democratic candidates for president are playing a game of one-upmanship in their attempt to gain support form abortion advocacy groups. But former Vermont Governor Howard Dead has a claim to fame none of the others can match: he's worked at Planned Parenthood. The physician-turned-politician did a stint at Planned Parenthood while working to become an internist, Mary Hahn Beerworth, director of Vermont Right to Life, tells However, the rotation wasn't required by his medical student program.

    MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Bolstered by waves of anti-war sentiment, former Vermont governor Howard Dean is emerging as a contender in the crowded contest for the Democratic presidential nomination. That means more headlines, more donors and more scrutiny. Dean is a family doctor, but he often sounds more like the image of a surgeon: blunt, aggressive, with a minimal bedside manner. His biting critiques of President Bush (news - web sites)'s war plans and what he calls Democrats' timidity strike some as angry, but they are just what some frustrated liberals long to hear. At a state party dinner here last...

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The former commanding general of Parris Island is asking Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean to explain during his visit to South Carolina this weekend why he said "we won't always have the strongest military." Retired Brig. Gen. Steve Cheney, head of the Marine Corps Recruit Depot from 1999-2001 and an unsuccessful Democratic candidate for the South Carolina House last year, sent a letter to Dean, saying his comments raise questions about his ability to be commander in chief. His letter echoes a statement issued this week by the campaign of one of Dean's rivals for the...

    Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean wasn't exactly jumping for joy over the news that Saddam Hussein's sons Uday and Qusay had been killed by U.S. forces in Iraq. "It's a victory for the Iraqi people," he told reporters, "but it doesn't have any effect on whether we should or shouldn't have had a war." In comments covered by the Associated Press, the disgruntled Democrat added, "I think in general the ends do not justify the means." Despite the good news for America, Dean tried to stick to his sour-grapes message, complaining that his Democratic rivals shouldn't have supported the...

Now I am going to discuss Governor Dean’s plans involving healthcare. The information from Governor Dean’s own website ( is the basis for my analysis. Also, I look at the past actions of the Governor to determine his agenda. Governor Dean’s plan has four major components: 1.

    NEW YORK - In response to the recent statement by former Vermont Governor Howard Dean suggesting that women are well-treated by the Palestinian Authority, the Zionist Organization of America has expressed concern that Dr. Dean's advisers have not fully informed him about the widespread abuse of women in PA-controlled territories. The Forward reported (Aug.29,2003) that Dr. Dean said: "Palestine is the best hope for peace in the Middle East, partly because Palestinians have experience with Israeli democracy and involve women in their political life." In fact, only 7% (5 out of 88) members of the Palestinian Legislative Council are women....

    Late last month, former Gov. Howard Dean was in Chicago, running for the Democratic nomination for president, and he harshly critiqued President George W. Bush's defense policy, and his handling of the Iraqi campaign, saying, “as they say in Texas, it is all hat, and no cattle." But documents obtained by Navy News & Undersea Technology from the archives of the office of former Gov. Dean, through Vermont’s Public Records Act (I V.S.A., 315-320), detail an interesting story of Dean's own dealings with the military, and his policy toward the use of Pentagon funds. Dean is now 20 points ahead...

    In 1968, male anti-war activists who rallied to the presidential campaign of Senator McCarthy famously cut their shoulder-length hair in order to broaden their electoral appeal, going “Clean for Gene.” The opposite impulse appears to have overtaken the presidential campaign of Howard Dean. As Dr. Dean, the current frontrunner for the Democrat Party nomination for president, rode the wave of anti-war feeling that has swept through the party’s left wing, his mainstream views on Israel were attracting significant criticism. At a recent Miami gathering on Dr. Dean’s behalf, organized by current and former Green Party activists, campaign literature was available...
