  • Howard Dean to Speak at GWU

    By Sam K. Theodosopoulos, George Washington University

    Today, a campus liberal organization is hosting former Vermont Governor, DNC chairman, and presidential candidate, Howard Dean, to speak at the George Washington University.  Dean

     

    The infamous “scream” aside, Howard Dean is a progressive ideologue. In a 2005 Human Events column, Bill O’Reilly poses the question, “Where Would Howard Dean be without hate?”

    O’Reilly writes:

    “The thing you've got to love about Howard Dean is that he is sincere in his hate. No phony he, Dean despises [conservatives], and everything for which they stand….Howard Dean's anger may be amusing to those on the far left, but the unintended consequence is it has made him a joke. Dean can command a forum of true believers now, but America has always dismissed haters over time. And that's what will happen with Dean and anyone else who deals in character assassination.”

    Dean is no longer credible, or particularly relevant these days. His angry demeanor, far left views, and unprofessional behavior have marginalized him even among the left.  For example in a 2007 TV appearance, he remarked, "I think we had quite enough capitalism in the last eight years and I think we need some regulation now."

    However, for all his blemishes, we stand with Dean on his opposition to the government takeover of health care, a version of which passed this past Christmas Eve. Dean was quoted in a radio appearance as the following:

    “This is essentially the collapse of health care reform in the United States Senate. And, honestly, the best thing to do right now is kill the Senate bill and go back to the House … You have the vast majority of Americans want the choices, they want real choices. They don’t have them in this bill. This is not health care reform and it’s not close to health care reform.”

    • I'm at a loss at I'm at a loss at how this even waned at all—maybe I got used to the cynicism of the last few years. But God, what kind of poeple would refuse an idea like universal healthcase? And if thats hard —refuse the ideas to MAKE it possible?How poeple can pass off helping the less fortunate as evil is strange to me.A public option seems to me to be quite moral—I hope I hope its included.If not, well, I know more than a few who will go apeshit.
