Democrats Suffering From Foot In Mouth

Who knew that Howard Dean was going to be so much fun as DNC Chairman? In a recent statement he said Tom DeLay needs to spend time in jail for being accused of ethics violations; however, back in 2003 Dean was keen on giving Osama bin Laden the benefit of the doubt. Here is Dean on Osama bin Laden in December of 2003:
"I've resisted pronouncing a sentence before guilt is found," Dean said. "I still 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 I'm sure that is the correct sentiment of most Americans, but I do think if you're running for president, or if you are president, it's best to say that the full range of penalties should be available. But it's not so great to prejudge the judicial system."

And here is Dean on Tom Delay from May 14th of this year:
Howard Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Party, said yesterday that the US House majority leader, Tom DeLay, ''ought to go back to Houston where he can serve his jail sentence," referring to allegations of unethical conduct against the Republican leader.

Get that? If you kill more than 3,000 Americans you get the benefit of the doubt, but if you are accused of violating ethics rules you get to go straight to jail. What is it with Democrats lately? First we have Harry Reid calling the president a loser, now Dean sticks his foot in his mouth about Delay, and we have Reid at it again, revealing that he has seen the FBI files of one of President Bush's judicial nominees:
Minority Leader Harry Reid strayed from his prepared remarks on the Senate floor yesterday and promised to continue opposing one of President Bush's judicial nominees based on "a problem" he said is in the nominee's "confidential report from the FBI."

According to the Washington Times story, not only should Reid not be mentioning the FBI files, but he shouldn't have access to them either because he isn't on the judiciary committee or from the nominees home state:
Furthermore, a "Memorandum of Understanding" covering the use of FBI background reports limits access to committee members and the nominee's home-state senators. Mr. Reid would fall into neither category.

Oddly enough, even the nominee is denied access to their FBI files:
Confidants of Judge Saad said yesterday that the judge would release the file but that he has never seen it, let alone obtained copies of it. Judge Saad is not permitted to see the file, Senate staffers said.

So what is missing from all of this incendiary talk? Ideas. The Democrats have no new ideas. Sure they tell us Bush's plan on this or that will destroy the ecosystem of starve old people, and they will tell us that a nominee of the president's is an angry guy or has a "blemish" in their FBI file, but they won't (or can't) propose any new ideas.
Comments:
Commando, i agree with you that the Dems don't seem to have any new ideas, only insults. I am amazed that the MSM doesn't talk about this, but I probably shouldn't be.

G.R.
 
they won't (or can't) propose any new ideas.

Oh, please! That is such a lame statement. Here is where you can go and see all the ideas Democrats have been proposing recently:

DNC: 2004 Party Platform
 
and yet all they do is insult the Republicans. Let me say this another way in case you misundertood me: in the media all they Dems do is insult and whine. Fine, the Dems have a platform, but writing your ideas down in the platform is a far cry from trying to get anything done. When was the last time you heard of a new proposal from the Dems in the media? Please Mike, platforms do nothing towards getting things done and you know it. Everytime one of them gets asked about what they would do about Social Security all they say is Bush is wrong. Two weeks ago on Fox News Sunday Pelosi looked like a deer in the headlights when repeatedly asked about what she would do about Social Security. Her answer was "Bush's idea is bad, but we don't have one." The party's platform is a "wish list" not a legislative plan of action.
 
I seriously doubt that "Bush's idea is bad, but we don't have one" is a direct quote that ever came out of Rep. Pelosi's mouth.

Also, despite the media's habit of watering everything down to a collection of soundbites, I think it is clear that the Democratic position on Social Security is that there is no crisis. It is a good and effective program that has helped build a stable middle class in this country and it does not need and would not benefit from the radical privatization scheme being pushed by Bush and the neo-con idelolouges. Just because Bush has a radical plan to screw up Social Security doesn't mean the Democrats need to have one too.
As for your complaint about Democrats not getting anything done, there is an easy way to rectify that. Join me in the next election in voting some of these Republican yahoos out of office. Once the Democrats are back in the majority, I think you will start to see them get some things done.

Yeah they take us more toward socialism.
 
Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
