Could these classless acts be any more predictable?
Just for kicks, in response to the hateful “Five Facts About the New RNC Chairman” that the far left are crowing about, here are a few facts about former DNC Chair Howie Dean. First, here are these compiled from a prior post – apologies for any broken links):
“I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for, but I admire their discipline and their organization,” the failed presidential hopeful told the crowd at the Roosevelt Hotel, where he and six other candidates spoke at the final DNC forum before the Feb. 12 vote for chairman. –January 30, 2005
“We’re going to use Terri Schiavo later on … This is going to be an issue in 2006, and it’s going to be an issue in 2008 because we’re going to have an ad with a picture of Tom DeLay saying, ‘Do you want this guy to decide whether you die or not? Or is that going to be up to your loved ones?’ ” –April 15, 2005 at a gay rights group’s breakfast in West Hollywood.
But he did draw howls of laughter by mimicking a drug-snorting Rush Limbaugh. “I’m not very dignified,” he said. “But I’m not running for president anymore.” In fact, as part of his commitment to lead the party for the next four years, he has sworn not to seek any office until after 2008. I’m not running for president anymore.” –April 20, 2005 (Star Tribune link no longer works, so I’m providing an alternate source) at a benefit for the American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota
Dean’s 25-minute speech to the Campaign for America’s Future annual gathering was interrupted frequently by applause, but his line about Republican work habits also produced an undertow of ‘’oohs’’ and ‘’aahs.’’ Asserting that some Florida voters stood in line for eight hours in November, Dean said that was a hardship for people who ‘’work all day and then pick up their kids at child care.’’ But, he said, Republicans could stand in eight-hour lines ‘’because a lot of them have never made an honest living in their lives.’’ –June 2, 2005, in a 25-minute speech to the Campaign for America’s Future in Washington, DC
—— Here’s more: He won’t admit it on American soil, but Howard Dean has enjoyed rubbing elbows overseas with prominent Socialists over the last few years, including former Socialist contender for president of France Segolene Royal. Yet to this day, liberals object to classifying their beliefs as “Socialism.” Hmmm …
—— Earlier this year, the Dr. of Disology, who has phonily tried to promote “racial harmony” in the past, said this in front of a group of black citizens:
Howard Dean showed up to talk about Black History Month but the focus quickly changed to politics Tuesday night in ICC Auditorium.
The Chairman of the Democratic National Committee and former Governor of Vermont contrasted the two parties’ presidential candidates, saying that with a woman and an African-American as the two front-runners, the Democratic field “looks like America” while the all-white male Republican field “looks like the 1950s and talks like the 1850s.”
“I think a library trustee is pretty important,” Dean said, during “an administration that likes book burning more than reading books.”
“The truth is the President of the United States used the same device that Slobodan Milosevic used in Serbia. When you appeal to homophobia, when you appeal to sexism, when you appeal to racism, that is extraordinarily damaging to the country.”
“I don’t know. There are many theories about (9/11). The most interesting theory that I’ve heard so far—which is nothing more than a theory, it can’t be proved—is that he was warned ahead of time by the Saudis. Now who knows what the real situation is? But the trouble is, by suppressing that kind of information, you lead to those kind of theories, whether they have any truth to them or not, and eventually, they get repeated as fact. So I think the president is taking a great risk by suppressing the key information that needs to go to the Kean Commission.”
“We’re going to tell all those white boys who run the Republican Party to stay out of our bedrooms.”
“You think the Republican National Committee could get this many people of color in a single room? Only if they had the hotel staff in here.”
“We’ve gotten rid of (Saddam Hussein), and I suppose that’s a good thing.”
“I’ve resisted pronouncing a sentence before guilt is found. I will have this old-fashioned notion that even with people like Osama, who is very likely to be found guilty, we should do our best not to, in positions of executive power, not to prejudge jury trials.”
So when you read more tonight and over the weekend on the left’s “outrage” over the election of Michael Steele to RNC Chair by using (mostly) distorted quotes, just remember how they sat back in silence while their race-baiting, Republican-hating, bile-spewing former chair worked his magic to get Democrats back into power.
And after remembering that, then laugh – a lot. Let them have their hate-a-thon. We can have a laugh-a-thon in response
Amanda Carpenter has more.
