Howard Dean’s DNC Playbook – Chapter I
Howard Dean said, ''I've been called worse things than a liberal. The reason the Republicans call names is because they have nothing to say about balancing the budget, creating jobs or doing anything about health care or education.''
We agree with Howard Dean, people without constructive ideas and logical arguments often resort to name calling. Perhaps that's why Chairman Dean called Republicans “brain dead”, Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) compared Republicans to Hitler and Senator Jon Corzine (D-NJ) likened the Vice President, Dick Cheney to Saddam Hussein. Those are some exceedingly convincing ideas for balancing the budget, creating jobs, improving education and reducing health care costs.
It’s interesting that Dean admits the word liberal has a negative connotation. Especially when he says: `The majority is on our side.” Apparently the Chairman believes the majority of the American people are brain dead because the majority failed to vote for their side this past election. (Interesting choice of words “brain dead” with the Terri Schiavo case so prominently in the news)
Beyond referring to someone as a liberal, can anyone give even one example of a major Republican politician calling a Democrat a derogatory name? We can’t think of any but, we’re sure our friends on the left will help us out if we are mistaken.
