He lost whatever relevance he had during the last Bush Administration, and gleefully joined the Vichy Dems. If he caught on fire I’d watch him burn.

Problem is, the job he’s getting paid for is scumbaggery; so, basically: Fuck Howard Dean. I’m glad we learned who he really is. Fuck him.

as a progressive in 2004…Genuineness is the word here and, despite Dean’s ambitious 2004 platform, I just wonder how easily he flipped from that and if the flip suggests that it wasn’t that substantive to begin with….According to Wikipedia, these were his policy position…on his ‘anti-war’ Iraq policy for example, there seems to be a lot of wiggle room.
A former medical doctor, Dean called for comprehensive universal health care in the US. He proposed an annual $88 billion on health care programs in the nation as well as wanting tax credits to help workers of moderate income buy “affordable” coverage similar to that offered to federal employees, with extra insurance subsidies for companies employing less than 50 people. He also proposed spending nearly $1 trillion over 10 years on health insurance. He even stressed the need for expanding state health care programs for children throughout his campaign.
Dean opposed using taxpayer-financed vouchers for tuition at parochial or other private schools, and promised to rework federal annual testing in grades 3 through 8 while allowing for more state and local control. He also guaranteed that people would not have to pay more than 10% of their income toward loans after post-secondary graduation as he would provide $10,000 a year in federal aid for university or high-skills learning.
Economy and taxes
Dean proposed a radically different tax plan than President Bush’s which would repeal all of the Bush tax cuts and replace them with tax cuts on the middle class. Throughout his campaign, he stressed the need for lowering taxes on the middle class while raising them on the upper class. He also promised to renegotiate components of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and other free trade agreements with foreign powers, and to “put the U.S. on a path to a balanced budget”. However, he never specifically stated any deficit reduction proposals other than repealing the Bush tax cuts.
With the guidance of his chief foreign policy advisor, Danny Sebright, Dean made the war in Iraq a pillar of his campaign. He proposed to transfer sovereignty to “credible and legitimate” Iraqi leaders and “encourage the United Nations to take responsibility for this political transition.” He also expressed strong support for the War in Afghanistan, saying “One priority should be strengthening our bonds with other countries, especially our historical allies in a world growing ever more interdependent.”
Dean would even open talks with North Korea, triple American financing to $30 billion over 10 years to combat unconventional weapons around the world and approve the use of force to halt genocide.

in Sacramento for that POS. I even walked across a very windy Carquinez bridge in Vallejo after it reopened-with a huge banner bearing his name. I sat out in the rain in DT Sacramento because no one else would sit at a table handing out information on his campaign. I feel insulted. I went to his fundraiser in SF to give $100 when David Crosby and ( I forgot her name again) the country singer with red hair performed. Sean Penn was there too, but he just hung out behind me. And I’m sure many others feel the same way. If I was on Twitter I would tell him to go play on the Carquinez during rush hour. It would be a good place for him. I will always feel betrayed and pissed I did all that for someone who gave us the middle finger. What a POS.

I have seen Howard Dean on Morning Joe. He is worse than I could have imagined. He is dead to me.
I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

Howard has really made me regret that, in the last 5 years or so. What in Hell’s name happened to him…..

That others gave it back. You know how bad money has to be for people in Washington not to touch it?
