Howie gets bamboozled on air
    #4355933 - 06/30/05 05:08 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

From http://www.opinionjournal.com/best/?id=110006892 --

Here's an odd exchange from last night's "Hardball" between host Chris Matthews and Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean:


Matthews: If the war in Iraq was a blunder, why don't the top Democrats join you in saying so?

Dean: Well, I don't know. I mean, many of them have said that they thought the president is mishandling this.

Matthews: No. Name one who has.

Dean: Well, I know that a number of people have said that the president is mishandling this situation.

Matthews: No, that is working around the edges of policy. That's micromanaging a war. I'm asking you, why don't they agree with you on policy and say so? Blunder is a big word. I think it's the first time I heard somebody say it. Why don't the top names, the name brands of the Democratic Party use the word blunder when they talk about the war?

Bill Clinton still stands with the president. Hillary Clinton stands with the president. Joe Lieberman stands with the president. They all do. Joe Biden, the ranking Democrat, stands with the president. You're out there alone still saying it's a blunder.

Dean: Well, I thought it was at the time. I mean, I--

Matthews: You still do. You just said so.

Dean: Well, I do. I mean, I thought it was at the--

Matthews: Why don't they?

Dean: Well, I don't know. You could have them on the show and ask them yourself.

What's oddest about this is that we can think of quite a few top Democrats other than Dean who have been totally and consistently opposed to Iraq's liberation: Reps. Nancy Pelosi, the minority leader, and Charles Rangel, the ranking member of the Ways and Means committee; and Sens. Carl Levin, the ranking member of the Armed Services Committee, and Robert Byrd, the ranking member of the Appropriations Committee and the longest-serving member of the Senate.

Dean could have answered Matthews's question, if he knew more about the elected officials from his own party.


If I were a Republican, I'd have a very hard time deciding which decision by the Dems was a bigger boon to the GOP -- the selection of Kerry as presidential candidate or the selection of Dean as head of the party.

What a turniphead.

Dean Dean The Screaming Machine!

America's debt problem is a "sign of leadership failure"

We have "reckless fiscal policies"

America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.

Americans deserve better

Barack Obama
