Dean: Prejudge Republicans, not Terrorists!
Howard "I have a scream" Dean, on due process:
"I've resisted pronouncing a sentence before guilt is found. I still have this old-fashioned notion that even with ... people who [are] very likely to be found guilty, we should do our best not to, in positions of executive power, not to prejudge jury trials." - Howard Dean, 2004 Presidential CampaignApparently Howie doesn't feel that this type of logic applies to Rep. Tom DeLay, R-TX, since Dean has been more than willing to play the prosecutor, judge and jury in this matter:
"I think DeLay ought to go back to Houston where he can serve his jail sentence down there courtesy of the Texas taxpayers." - Howard Dean, May 14, 2005, Massachusetts Democratic Convention in Lowell, MANow let's take another look at Howie's 2004 quote, this time without any omissions from yours truly:
"I've resisted pronouncing a sentence before guilt is found," Dean said during the 2004 Democratic primary campaign. "I still have this old-fashioned notion that even with people like Osama, who is very likely to be found guilty, we should do our best not to, in positions of executive power, not to prejudge jury trials." - Howard Dean, 2004 Presidential CampaignIn case the Democrats are wondering why they lose election after election, they might want to consider the message they are sending to the American people: Republican congressional leaders are guilty whenever the mainstream media mentions their name, but the terrorist responsible for killing 3,000+ Americans deserves a fair trial before we pronounce judgment.
Yes, Howie, I'm sure that resonates with the Average American.
I now return to my adventures in capitalism.
Prisoner, may I remind you that here at the SOTR we are a PG rated blog. You can't just come in here and drop the F Bomb - even if you are quoting Big Time.
Ok... hopefully you won't delete the link. The point of the article is the fact that many republicans can now get away with things they claim the democrats shouldn't.Post a Comment
