You wouldn't believe how pissed I get when I see things like this. I hate it when people use religeon in any way, shape, or form in politics. I mean, can we get an intelligent person who isn't white or protestant(sp?), the last one we had was shot in the head while driving through Dallas. I don't mean we should vote for someone just because they are of a different sex, race, or religeon. I mean we need a good candidate that is of a different sex, race, or religion. It would be a step away from narrowmindedness in American society.

BT: That's bull crap and you know it. He's barely religious. Why would he go around pretending that he is to get votes? And why is he being so damn tactless about it...you don't announce that you're going to start talking about God-you just do it. That's some strange politics. And in reality, there are plenty of folk on the east coast that feel perfectly find openly talking about their religion. You will be hard pressed to find a deeply religious person that won't talk religion to you. He's not comfortable talking about religion...not the whole east coast. He's trying to blame the divide when it's really his issue. Poor politics.
I wish smart folk like you would abandon him and get with the real candidate...CLARK!! Someone that doesn't have pretend he believes in god to get votes. Someone that doesn't just point out the flaws--someone that addresses them...and his new tax plan will help people like Bob88 with families to support. He would spank Bush all the way back to Crawford.
Question Dean's misstatements and his weakness on the issues--here is a man that pretends he opposes war, but doesn't have plan to bring the troops home. Here's a man that opposes lobbies, but doesn't have a plan to regulate their contact and power. Here's a man that opposes our current trade policies but doesn't want to take on NAFTA and the WTO. He says democrats need to be proud of what we stand for--but he doesn't want to fight for what we stand for. Here is a man that criticizes the president for his love of the rich man but plans to raise taxes on the middle class.
He's under attack from the media right now and I don't think he's gunna withstand the blows.
