Democratic Plan for 2006 Elections

Howard Dean was on “Face the Nation” yesterday, and in the middle of getting Dick Cheney and George Bush confused, and not talking about Hillary Clinton in 2008, he did spout the Democrats 2006 plan for winning back both the House and Senate.

Evidently he didn't scream it loud enough, since there is nothing I can find in the media today about this new plan.

One, we want honesty and openness back in government again.

I’m going to assume that means he’ll demand that members of his party holding up 25% of the Barrett report immediately release it to the public.

I’m sure he’ll also agree to John McCain’s call for bipartisan work on lobbying reform, instead of using that issue as a political football.

Two, we want a strong national defense, first of all, based on telling the truth to our citizens and our soldiers before we send troops abroad to defend America.

Just Google It. Mr. Dean will obviously be reminding us that his party was talking of Saddam Hussein’s WMD program from 1998 through 2002, right?

Three, we want American jobs that will stay in America using energy independence as a new industry to create millions of construction and manufacturing jobs.

I’m sure that he’ll advocate domestic oil and gas exploration, clean coal and nuclear energy as a bridge to the point when we can get buy without imported fossil fuels.

I’ll be interested to hear how he will convince the environmental activist wing of the party that accessible, affordable items such as the above will be needed for the short term.

Four, we want a health care system that works with everybody just like 36 other countries have in the world.

And we’d like to know how the 85% of the country who has health care is going to be treated. Specifically, I’d like to know how much more than the $20,000 I gave the feds last year in income and Social Security taxes this is going to cost.

And how will we prevent a system like Canada, where basic treatments can take months to get, if they are available at all.

Five, we want a strong public education system so we can have optimism and opportunity back in America.

Will this be a system driven by the unions, as it has been in the past when the Democratic Party was in power nationally, and still is in many states? Or, will Mr. Dean and his party find a way to actually measure performance, and increase accountability.

More money isn’t the answer, if it was Washington DC, the city with the highest per student spending in the nation wouldn’t have one of the lowest graduation rates, and lowest rates of literacy among the few who do graduate.

I guess we'll find out. It will be interesting to see how many questions on the programs they actually answer.

You'd have thought after "HillaryCare" that one would have dropped out of their plans.

Howard Dean doesn't even know what the word "truth" means.

Too bad about half the american public is sitting around nodding there heads and saying "wow, this is really what America needs. Healthcare for everyone, that sounds pretty cool. Yeah, strong public education. This Dean guy really knows what he's talking about." And that's how Democrats get elected. Voters are completely willing to sit down and listen to crap like this, and not bother to check records. This is why the Founding Fathers were afraid of total mab rule. Because the mob isn't that bright.

Step One for the Dems should be to have Howard commit suicide on live TV, and then incinerate the body to make sure he doesn't come back to haunt them. Until he's dead to the party, they're toast.

Greta, according to LP and Uber I'm going to be IN the first debate :)

Specter, I agree, I wonder if it bugs him that no one seems to care about the plan? I mean the NY Times didnt' even print any of it.

Triumvirate- Unfortunately, you are right. And we aren't allowed to give a current events/issues test before we hand folks a ballot.

Jeff, I think between him, Gore, and Kerry, the party is going to go down like a cheap hooker on payday. Afterward they'll all be wondering how it happened, not realizing it IS them.

That's the problem with Democrats. They spout useless talking points like those, then further prove themselves as the hypocrites they truly are.
