Dean Torpedos Reid On Fox

Published by at 10:52 am under 2006 Elections,All General Discussions

In discussing the Ambramoff scandal on Fox News Sunday, DNC Chairman Howard Dean claimed no Democrat did anything in response to funds coming from Ambramoff’s direction, and if they did they would be in serious trouble.

A little later in the program, Chirs Wallace pointed out that the Washington Post reported last fall on a letter Sen Minority leader Harry Reid wrote to Secretary Norton for Indian interests represented by Abramoff – who supposedly directed the interests where to funnel donations.

Even KOS Kids new Reid was in trouble for this one.

I think it is time for Reid to be investigated and I think he should step down from his leadership position.

    Are the Kos-kids that stupid they don’t comprehend what they read in WAPO? No wait, by 5 tonight the KOS-Kids will point out it was on FNC and say it does not count because FNC is Faux news, in other words bla-bla-bla we can’t hear you and it’s still a repub scandal! Some “REALITY” Based community.

    In this journalistic tour de force, Dagny d’Anconia reveals the astounding truth behind the Jack Abramoff scandal – and why Abramoff’s life may now be in danger. —JW

    Jack Abramoff was a Republican lobbyist. In fact, he has become the media’s archetype for an evil, greedy, Republican super-lobbyist.

    So I ask you this: In this politically charged environment, and caught in a scandal, who would you get for a lawyer if you were Jack Abramoff? The answer of who he got will shock you:

    Jack Abramoff’s lawyer is one of the most powerful and trusted Democrat lawyers in the country. He is not just any lawyer. He is the lawyer that argued against Bill Clinton’s impeachment in the Senate. He has represented numerous infamous Democrats over the years. He is the ultimate Democrat insider for the Clintons.

    Common sense tells us Jack Abramoff never would have chosen that lawyer if he were free to choose.

    My conclusion is that the New York Clintons and/or Democrats made a deal with the New York Mafia to deliver the Abramoff scandal and thus the 2006/2008 elections.

    If this is true, then Jack Abramoff may soon have outlived his usefulness. He can no longer do lobbying. He will soon have done all the damage he could do to the Republicans. If the bad guys get a notion that he could come forward and tell the whole story, then they might do something to prevent it.

    They would try to make it either look like a suicide, or like a right-wing guy did it to punish him for his damage to the Republicans. Either story would be entirely plausible to the press, and yet another way to damage the Republicans. Thus he may soon become more useful dead than alive to them.

    Bringing out this story now, first, is my way to help prevent that from happening.

    Woooo.Let me adjust my tinfoil hat..My guess is he got the lawyer he thought was best for him, party affiliation being of no concern. Delay did, too. His counsel–like a lot of criminal defense counsels and trial lawyers–is a liberal Dem.

  4. […] DEAN: That’s a big problem, and those Democrats are in trouble, and they should be in trouble. And our party, if the American people will put us back in power in ‘06, we will have on the president’s desk things that outlaw all those kinds of behaviors. Right now it’s a Republican scandal. Maybe they’ll find that some Democrats did something wrong, too. That hasn’t been the case yet. Well, Dean certainly did his best to weasel out, but even some hardcore Kos Kidz know better (hat tip to A.J.). Here’s what we’re talking about: Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, a Tennessee Republican, said the Abramoff scandal affects both parties. He questioned why his Democratic counterpart, Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, hasn’t returned more than $60,000 in contributions connected to Indian tribes who were among Abramoff’s clients.

  5. […] Meanwhile, slightly off topic, AJ Strat shows us that on the issue of Abramoff and the Democrats and “the culture of corruption” the White Whale may yet be slipping away again. […]
