More of "Screamin' Dean's" Spin

"Instead of offering a concrete plan to address the crisis at all levels, McCain promised to take the same hands-off approach that President Bush used to lead us into this crisis," Democratic Party Chief Howard Dean said.

Once again the Democrat’s chief bungler, “Screamin Dean” has twisted words to suit what he wants and to suit the leftist agenda. It must be very difficult to be unable to read or hear and comprehend what someone else says because you are convinced that nothing they say has any meaning. Typical again of the head-in-the-sand progressive left. McCain was very clear on the housing crisis, unlike Obama and Hillary, who throw out a lot of words with absolutely no plan to implement in case something does stick to the proverbial wall. Sen. McCain stated very clearly, "I will not play election year politics with the housing crisis. Unlike Screamin’ Dean, Obama, and Hillary (emphasis mine), I will evaluate everything in terms of whether it might be harmful or helpful to our effort to deal with the crisis we face now." He went on to say, "I will consider any and all proposals based on their cost and benefits (emphasis mine). In this crisis, as in all I may face in the future, I will not allow dogma to override common sense."

The last sentence is something that the progressive left of the Democrat Party has yet to understand, or else they lack the common sense to understand common logic to any situation. McCain went on to say, "I have always been committed to the principle that it is not the duty of government to bail out and reward those who act irresponsibly, whether they are big banks or small borrowers." He added, "Government assistance to the banking system should be based solely on preventing systemic risk that would endanger the entire financial system and the economy."

He is correct on both points, and, unlike the Democrats who offer half measures, McCain would not act without all the facts. I am amazed at how quickly Obama and Hillary are willing to throw out a half-baked, half-thought-through plan in order to say, “I have a plan.” On paper it may look good, in speeches it may sound good, but when it comes to working, the proof is in the pudding. Neither have shown that they even know how to make pudding, much less serve it.

It seems the Democrats will jump up and throw out a line that sounds good and then be unable to deliver. Does anyone remember all the promises made by the Democrats when they wanted to win the House and Senate in ’06? Pelosi promised that, in the first 100 days, the Democrats would:

• Put new rules in place to "break the link between lobbyists and legislation." They failed, and, in fact, things have gotten worse due to the ineptness of the Democrat leadership in both the House and Senate.

• Enact all the recommendations made by the commission that investigated the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. They failed again and bit off more than they could chew.

• Raise the minimum wage to $7.25 an hour, maybe in one step. They got this one through, for all the good it did. Again, just talk with nothing to go along with it.

• Allow the government to negotiate directly with the pharmaceutical companies for lower drug prices for Medicare patients. Failed, but tried to blame the Republicans for the failure. Claimed the Republicans are in the drug companies’ pocket, but failed to realize that most are stupid enough to buy that when all they have to do is look and see who among the Democrats own stock in the largest drug manufacturers.

• "Pay as you go," meaning no increase in the deficit, whether the issue is middle class tax relief, health care or some other priority. Again, this was a lot of talk and the Democrats have done nothing except talk, finger point and posture. They had no firm plan in mind with which to do all the things promised.

To do that, she said, Bush-era tax cuts would have to be rolled back for those above "a certain level." She mentioned annual incomes of $250,000 or $300,000 a year and higher, and said tax rates for those individuals might revert to those of the Clinton era. Details will have to be worked out, she emphasized. They still haven’t worked out the details. Again, they had a lot of talk and no plan.

"We believe in the marketplace," Pelosi said of the Democrats, then drew a contrast with Republicans. "They have only rewarded wealth, not work." And the Democrats are the party that rewards WHAT? Can we say dependence, welfare, give-away programs and higher taxes, lots of posturing and finger pointing, but no real results.

"We must share the benefits of our wealth" beyond the privileged few, she added. And the plan to do that is to tax those who already pay the majority of taxes in this country. To tax the ones who create the jobs, the businesses, and invest in the community and business place to keep the economy alive. Already with anticipation of higher taxes, the market is running scared.

And the biggest failure was the promise to end the war in Iraq and bring the troops home. Still no plan. Hillary has no plan, and Obama has no plan. More talk and no real plan with which to carry out the posturing. They can talk the talk, but when it comes to walking the walk, they are lame and beyond moving.

Have the Democrats really presented anything of value since ’06 for which they actually had a plan and an idea of what it would cost? I have searched high and low, and I have yet to find anything substantial. Again, typical rhetoric coming from “Screamin’ Dean,” who criticizes a man who wants to have the facts in hand before going off half cocked, as the Democrats have done for the last two years and many years before that. To expect a competent candidate to come up with a plan that is so far reaching as the housing situation without having the facts is ridiculous, but then “Screamin’ Dean” has shown in the past just how ridiculous he can be and, once more, removes all doubt as to his ability to judge a situation and act in a manner requiring some common sense. Once again, he would rather throw something on the proverbial wall to see if it sticks than to take time to study to have all of the facts. When will the Democrats learn to stop shooting themselves in the foot? And when will “Screamin’ Dean” stop lying through his teeth, believing no one will know the difference?

Thank's WHT. You have a great site as well. I resisted making a comment on the woman thing but being the father of 4 wonderful young ladies who not only know who they are but dang well will let you know it in a heart beat. I taught and tell them to this day. No one can tell you what you should be or can be. You can be anything you want to be .

Now back to the Dems. You are exactly correct. The Dems have a record of failure and will IMO fail again this year when the WH was theirs to lose. I love it!
I am not in love with McCain but with a good VP he may do ok and dang sure beat what we have now. My preference was Romney but between the farright religious preachers and his taking on a Three Legged Stool approach rather than a sturdy ladder approach, he messed up .

The post was not the worst part of it Fred. It was the farleftnoid idiots who responded in the manner of 5 year olds. I asked just what did the deal with McCain 04 and the GOP have to do with the topic. It was not published. So much for free speech on the ultra lib blogs.
