Dean is going to get it! It'll be one of the best things to ever happen to the Republican Party.

......Fart & Sniff !

You two Free Republic refugees may not have noticed, but you've done the above on several threads!


Not that there's anything wrong with that.....


Howard Dean is facing a Democratic party that's 75%Corrupt, so he's in for an uphill battle. What do you folks know about Mr.Dean? I mean, what have you researched? Is your soundbyte at the "Scream" level, or do you know that he was a Lt.Gov. to a Republican & governed over one of the most moderate state governments we've ever had? That his Republican approval rating was so high in his state, that he could have been govenor for life?

No? You didn't know that?


Suuuuuuuuuprise Suprise!

Vermont Republicans might as well be socialists in the South, the Democrats are fooling themselves if they think he'll help in any Bush states.
Someone on Fox said he'll make a great guest for the talk shows I expect many more "I Have a Scream" moments to come!


You must come from the DU...I recognize the crass language.

Unless you mean Democratic Underground? Nope, no party affiliation.

But seriously Sniff, the term "moderate" happens to be applicable within the American governance model no matter what state of the Union you're speaking of, so the further exagerration of applying a "socialist" label to GOP Vermonters is just false. It's tangible, tracked policy data.
Please research Mr.Dean's tax cuts & fiscal policy - it won't fit your convenient sterotyping.
The word crass denotes thoughtless & vulgar speech. I'd be more aptly describe with applying invective language towards your drivel.

The only thing that will help the Republican party would be to have actual Republicans representing them. I don't imagine support for a homicidal, imperialist agenda is considered a good thing. Republicans need to get back to their roots.

And Howard Dean? Eh, who cares, people like socialism, get over it. At least it's not fascism.

Come on folks! Dean was the only Moderate from any party in the last race lead up.
Given the polling of America, where the vast majority are socially laize faire & fiscally conservative, Howard Dean was ideal........that's why the corrupt power brokers of the Democrat party torpedoed him, and that's why the GOP cheered it on......they took the one candidate who could have whipped Bush blindfolded.

There's a reason so many of you only know Dean via false labels & not actual record......it's what was marketed.

I hope Howard Dean wins. He would actually know how to mobilize people to get involved with the Democratic party. That was why his campaign was so successful. Successful in different aspects when compared to other campaigns. He might have actually gone further if the media wasn't biased towards him, they were biased towards him because he didn't represent what they're knowledgeable expert's models were based on.

Go, Dean, Go!.

Too bad more people aren't standing up and screaming about what is wrong in this country and demanding them to be made right, like...gasp....taking back the white house and our country.

You all might be in for a big surprise with Howard Dean.

Wrong. Only Liberals like socialism. The rest of us think socialism simply means paying way too much for what you get and handing over way too much control of your personal life to bureaucrats who don't give a damn whether you live or die.

Got some proof of that statement, pardner? Or are you just talking out your @ss?

That's not socialism; that's the Bush domestic policy. Or did you miss that whole "defense of marriage" circus?

For the record, Dean is a fiscal conservative and social moderate-to-progressive, not to mention a hell of a nice guy.

If you understood anything about politics, you'd KNOW that liberals and socialism go hand in hand. But since you obviously DON'T know anything about thie subject, save your insults for someone else.

Dean's "successful?" He won his homestate primary.
Dean's "A hell of a nice guy?" Do nice guys declare that they hate members of thier rival party and everything they stand for?
This country needs a strong Democratic party, what it's about to get is a screaming extremist whose only talent seems to be alienating fellow Democrats and scaring the hell out of swing voters.

This would be awesome! Talk about putting a bullet in the head of the democratic party; they'd take the road of most extremist parties. That road is less travled for a reason.

If Dean implements everything he believes, and it sounds like the powerhouses in the party want this too, there could be a split in the Democratic party like the split that happened when Teddy Roosevelt ran agains Taft.

You really have to spell national party politics M-O-D-E-R-A-T-E. When Clinton was in office and the Repubs were in power, they worked with him to pass compromise bills. Today, the democrats, the minority, aren't trying to work with the republicans to fix problems, they're denying there's a problem at all.

They've taken their six shooter and shot themselves 3 times in the foot. Now they just spun the cylinder and stuck it to their heads. Let's see if a bullet's in the chamber.

I think a case could be made that Clinton put the Dems in the position they're in today; "triangulating" instead of positioning the party on principle.
If Sweeney and the union bosses had fought the battle of the overpass and stopped Nafta and Gatt, and forced Clinton to adopt a high wage instead of free trade position, they'd still have an identifiable mainstream image instead of a Micheal Moore conspiracy socialist fringe position.

Howard Dean is a decent choice. More moderates are needed to try to bring this country together. Also, a lot of individuals seem to be label happy so they can avoid discussion on issues. I consider calling somebody a liberal, left, democrat, right, republican, conservative equal to calling somebody a nazi or hitler.

Anyways....is nobody able to post in the Politics@ats forum?

This is the single most ignorant thing I have ever read on ATS

Hitlerisms are on the rise these days. Any time someone has a weak arguement or wants to make a strong arguement, they no longer say the f word, that's too typical in speach now. They just compare it to Hitler. The reality: it demeans what the Nazis did and helps promote anti-semitism as a not so bad thing.

I never had a that big of a problem with Dean - he's no more socialist than some of the policy the Bush administration is advancing. Plus he's not part of the "club". The "club" being global elitists.
