Howard Dean

Republicans Are Obstructing King's Dream, Dean Says
On the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean accused President Bush and other Republicans of abandoning the civil rights movement and the call of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to fight poverty. "As we mark this anniversary, we should remember the words of Dr. Martin Luther King and others who spoke on the Mall in Washington some 43 years ago calling on each one of us as individuals and our nation to honor our obligation to one another as part of the American community," Dean said in a statement. "We have a long way to go in ensuring the dream that Dr. King spoke of some 43 years ago, and Republicans' misplaced priorities are not getting us closer to making that dream a reality," Dean said. The Democrats' message to residents of the Gulf Coast still rebuilding after the devastating storm is that "we have not and we will not forget you. We will work hard to ensure the Gulf Coast has the resources needed to rebuild its communities," he said.
This from the head honcho of the party of "keep them down, make excuses for bad behavior, don't expect the best, and DEATH".
"I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today."
Isn't it time to implement that dream and stop treating any American as more, or less, than any other American? This is what Republicans want, and are working hard to achieve. The Democrats seem to think that they know what's best for everyone, and anyone who isn't Caucasian isn't smart enough to get ahead on their own. That's just flat out wrong! Where is the outrage from the black community?
