DNC Chairman Howard Dean Says McCain is not a Strong Candidate


You know John McCain is doing fine when …

In politics you know you are doing something right and putting the fear into your opponent when you hear the words … you are not a strong candidate. From the lips of DNC Chairman Howard Dean trying to deflect the attention from the present carnage and screw ups going on in his own Democratic Primary process, he looks to make comments that are code for, ut-oh.

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean highlighted the reasons John McCain is not a strong candidate in interviews with George Stephanopolous on ABC’s This Week and Bob Schieffer on CBS’s Face the Nation this morning.

Howie, I think thou doust protest too much. You may want to concentrate on the Obama-Clinton “political death match” going on that looks to tear your party apart. You also may want to figure out the Florida and Michigan primary mess.

      If anyone’s qualified to give an opinion, it’s Howard Dean, “the Internet scream.”

      Just made that phrase up off the top of my head.

      I would say Dean got that obvious statement correct. By all means I do not see McCain as a strong candidate. But right quickly, I will be voting for him.

      As to his continued heralding as American Hero, that does not buy anything with me. Since I am not identifying myself or giving specific comparrisons, most anything I say on the subject here would be in bad taste. Surely I am safe to say many vets would not try to make life station gains off combat military services given to this country. I think it is fair to say the Disabled Veterans of America (DAV) takes a stance of, “if you can say nothing good of another vet then say nothing at all”. To which I one up with, let no vet advance himself off stepping on the bent over working backs of other vets.

      Politically I feel McCain has been self serving, questionable on trust, and became a true professional politician…master of little else.

      On a personal level I wish he could learn to speek without calling his audience “friends” so many times. ANd get a tissue to wipe his runny nose, rather than the back of his finger.

      Got to vote for him, not for enjoyment. Sorry, the mandate no good choices thing of McCain gets me some rash.

      I,too, do not see McCain as a strong candidate. With all due respect for his years of captivity, that does not qualify him to be a president. In fact, in my mind, those years of captivity are a detriment.

      #3 YOU are a detriment.

      I agree that McCain is an American hero but hero status does not make him fit to be president. I also agree (unfortunately) with Howard Scream Dean, McCain is not a strong candidate. With that said, neither is Pastor Wright Obama or Schillary Hillary. None of these candidates represent Americans. Each of them are in it for their power and prestige and their ideals versus representing the ideals of Americans.

      So may the strongest of the weak candidates win – though I won’t be voting for any of them.

      Why trash McCain…that is the best we have got going….Hillary I would not trust…and Bill with his cigars in the the White House is going to represent more money….Obama will destroy us……who would even be a Democrat these days….!!!

      I agree with katablog. They are all horrible candidates. If McCain picks Condi as his running mate, as has been printed, then he’s toast. She’s nearly as incompetent as “w”

      I agree Hillery and Obama are misstepping and slipping off to the mud pretty often. With easy research I feel it is to be seen, that once the Dems have settled on their candidate, plenty of stickable goo will be hurled at McCain. I will be compelled to vote for McCain, as repeating, given the other worse choice. Though if the Dems choose to play nasty, and they will…right? McCain will not look such the war hero nor a trusted representitive of conservative views. He will be made to look ‘professional’, a great thing for a welder, bad thing for the sparrow in the bird world.

      Soon more people like me will become quiter, supporting our best of the bad choices. For me, if perhaps it is just me, I think, “more people…will become quiter”, dependant upon McCains extremely critical choosing of a VP running mate. The picking never so important to me in other elections. McCain just does not look healthy to me, good for one term if that, so the VP is far more important.

      McCain may not be the strongest politician, but I’d vote for a door stopper before I’d vote for that poser Obama.

      Hillary is as over as Bill.
      Lady puh-leassssse, take the
      door prize and go home! We
      all have to be up early

      YO ‘RELLA, your pumpkin awaits.

      I respect those that decide they have to vote for McAmenesty but I simply can’t bring myself to vote for the best of 3 evils. I think more of my vote than that. We’ve been duped into that for years and its time to stand up and say NOTA.

      To Howard Dean;

      Regarding VP selection.

      While I am disappointed in Hillary, I believe
      that there are many better choices for Obama’s V.P. choice. I think that Obama should consider
      letting the Democratic delegates at the convention
      choose his V.P.

      Why? I think that if Obama’s V.P. were to become
      the next president within Obama’s 4 years, that
      the Delegates choose the V.P. would be best for
      the Party.

      I believe that Mr. Obama should name his preferred
      choice and allow the Clinton forces to attempt to
      override his selection. In that way, Hillary would have a chance to become the V.P. But if
      Hillary has disappointed other supporter, as she
      has me, I think that Hillary would not have an
      easy win of the V.P. nomination. And the Democrats would have a delegate selected V.P.

      I believe that John McCain needs to do the same
      thing. With skin cancer and age, his V.P. choice
      should be open to the vote of Republican Delegates.

      Finally, how Mr. Obama delegates authority to his
      V.P. is totally up to him. He is not required to
      give his V.P. more than the power that Johnson had.
