WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic National Committee leaders embraced feisty party boss Howard Dean on Saturday and urged him to keep fighting despite a flap over his blunt comments on Republicans.
After a meeting of the DNC's 40-member executive committee at a downtown hotel, members said Dean was doing exactly what they elected him to do — build the party in all states and aggressively challenge Republicans.
Now. What has got democrats to win in states that have been traditionally "republican"
by having more moderate issue positions.
How does having a man go out and insult the other guy and make quasi-rascist statements along the way.
Obviously i don't understand this -or else i'd be on the DNC-
"I hope Governor Dean will remember that he didn't get elected to be a wimp," said DNC member Gilda Cobb-Hunter, a South Carolina state representative. "We have been waiting a long time for someone to stand up for Democrats."
When did Insulting people become standing up? I mean i thought standing up for democrats is like that speech Made in the American President about "why aren't you a member of the aclu"
Karen Marchioro, a DNC member from Washington state, said she was stunned to see so many congressional Democrats back away from Dean."We always defend them, why won't they defend us? And they want us to support them for president?" she asked. "I have no desire to lose, I just think this is the way you win — you let people know where you stand and you fight."
Cobb-Hunter said Dean "should consider the source — congressional Democrats. What's their track record? He's doing what a lot of us wanted him to do and expected him to do."
and these people wonder why they are losing
"We just haven't been mean enough"
"When we elected Dean we knew we were getting a leader who would be good at organizing the base and getting the message out to the American people, and that's what he's doing," Alari said. "He's our guy."
what's the message he is communicating? can some one tell me?
