Feeling Fine with Dr. Dean?

While some polls show that the democrats say they are fine with Dean's nomination to lead the embattled minority, many in the party are having second thoughts after remembering his crash and burn scream-out during the Iowa primaries, upon hearing how much he absolutely "hates republicans."

Republicans however are feeling fine with the selection of Howard Dean as the DNC's new chairman. The choice could not have been better for Conservatives as they look to extend their lead in both houses of Congress in the 2006 mid-term elections.

From: David Hill at The Hill

"A Gallup poll taken earlier this month found that Howard Dean's unfavorable name identification, 38 percent, exceeds his favorable name ID, 31 percent. According to a January 2005 poll published by The Wall Street Journal, just 27 percent of Democrats and 22 percent of all Americans view Dean positively.

But evidently the Democrats running their dazed party are so desperate for leadership that they can’t be swayed by polls, even of Democrats. So it’s not surprising to see a recent Gallup poll of 223 Democratic National Committee members showing that 63 percent believe Dean will do an excellent job as chairman and 27 percent say he’ll do a good job. Only 2 percent anticipate a poor or terrible job by Dean.

Some Democrat bigwigs say Dean will be successful because he’s a fighter. One even said Dean gave Democrats their swagger back. I’m inclined to remind Democrats that Gen. George Custer was also a fighter with more than a hefty dose of swagger, but see where that got the 7th Cavalry.

When nutty Ross Perot withdrew from campaigning and danced with his daughter to Patsy Cline’s eerie version of “Crazy” as the cameras rolled, it was disturbing, but with a certain charm, as if Perot knew. The “crazy-scream guy” waltzing back onto the political stage is simply disturbing."

Columnist Robert Novak noted today that, "The conventional wisdom in Washington is that the flamboyant Dean will overpower newly installed Republican Chairman Ken Mehlman, the understated 2004 Bush campaign manager. Old Democratic hands are not so optimistic about the coming Mehlman vs. Dean televised face-offs -- cool and disciplined vs. emotional and unpredictable."

Novak is correct about the contrast between both chairmen. Mehlman is one of the smartest and strategic players in Washington who never gets flustered, He responds with facts, staying on message speaking clearly and concisely. He was one of the main players in the president's reelection and was rightly rewarded with the chairmanship for his fine work.

Dean is much more emotional, which liberals feel is good, but in reality it becomes a detriment especially when making decisions on important issues and in dealing with the media.

In other Dean news...

Dean Orders Media Blackout.

Howard Dean, the new chairman of the Democratic National Committee, requested a media blackout of a debate with top Pentagon adviser Richard Perle, then suddenly changed his mind on Wednesday after hearing that liberal news agencies complained. See Full Story

"DNC Chair Howard Dean has declared a news blackout of his appearance and requested the media not quote, record, and/or paraphrase his remarks," event coordinator Gabrielle Williams wrote in an e-mail sent to news agencies Wednesday morning. "We apologize for the late notice, but we were just informed of this request."

ou can bet that the left-wing media will have plenty of control over the Dean Machine, being pulled every which-way for candidates beholden to liberal special interest groups.

Already getting himself into trouble, Dean wants New York's Republican Party to apologize or (get this) resign over remarks linking the Democrats to a civil rights lawyer convicted of aiding terrorists.

Dean called Stephen Minarik's comments offensive and said, "The American people deserve better than this type of political character assassination." Is he kidding? Dean obviously has a hard time facing facts.

On Monday, Minarik said that Dean's election shows that "the Democrats simply have refused to learn the lessons of the past two election cycles, and now they can be accurately called the party of Barbara Boxer, Lynne Stewart and Howard Dean."

(I could not have said it better myself!)

Stewart is a New York City lawyer who was convicted last week of helping terrorists smuggle messages from one of her imprisoned clients, a radical Egyptian sheik, to his terrorist disciples on the outside who were involved in the first World Trade Center terrorist attack in 1993. Boxer is a Massively LIBERAL senator from California, who shares many of Stewart's views.

The '93 terrorist attack went with no response from the Clinton White House, and was later cited by officials as an incentive for Osama Bin Laden's decision to escalate attacks, culminating in the September 11, 2001 attacks on the WTC and Pentagon, killing over 3000 innocent civilians.

Minarik statement issued Wednesday said, "it is not the Republican Party's problem that these far-left activists have made their home in the Democratic party."

In other words, let the self-destruction continue!
