Dumber Than Dean

Published by at 5:48 pm under All General Discussions

It used to be ‘dumber than dirt’, but now it should be ‘dumber than Dean’. Dean’s answer to the liberal democrats problem? Reach out to ‘anti-choicers’, a.k.a. pro-lifers. You know, religious people who cherish life. Here’s his plan, and let’s just keep it quiet in case the anti-choice crowd figures it out…

Democrats need to reach out to voters who oppose abortion rights and promote candidates who share that view, the head of the party said Friday.

Howard Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, told a group of college Democrats that their party has to change its approach in the debate over abortion.

“I think we need to talk about this issue differently,” said Dean. “The Republicans have painted us as a pro-abortion party. I don’t know anybody in America who is pro-abortion.”

Dean’s approach echoed similar arguments advanced in recent months by former President Clinton and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y.

“We do have to have a big tent. I do think we need to welcome pro-life Democrats into this party,” said Dean.

The effort to attract such voters comes as Senate Democrats are preparing for confirmation hearings on Supreme Court nominee John Roberts. Roberts’ views on abortion are already being intensely scrutinized.

You mean it is OK to risk Roe v Wade? There is no problem with someone whose religious framework requirs a sanctity of life -they are not extreme ideologues who can now be judges? The risk of back alley abortions is not really a risk anymore???

Does he think pro-lifers are that gullible?

    gullible, yes, that’s exactly what he believes. and sadly, in many instances, he’s right. just another example of “change how we talk bout things” (i.e. LIE), rather than “change how we think about things”
