“I hear you aren’t standing with Obama?”
“Why are you so obsessed with Howard Dean?”

I’ve recieved several e-mails on yesterday’s post. I am not a constituent of Barack Obama. I am a constituent of Howard Dean. I admire Senator Obama, and would consider supporting him for a Presidential run. However, first and foremost, I stand with the Party Chair, Howard Dean, and will continue to stand with him through the end of his term. Howard Dean is the leader of the party, and I will not question his integrity. You have every right to disagree with Governor Dean, however, if you consider yourself a Democrat, you have no business but to stand alongside him.

    There is no place for prejudice in any political party. Howard Dean is a great man, and a great leader. He needs some polish and to think carefully before he speaks.

    “Only White Christians” ehhhhhh?!?! And, what may I ask is Howard Dean exactly? He’s definitely not black. Definitely not Jewish. Ohhh!!!! He IS A WHITE CHRISTIAN! I’m sure Mr. Dean would be very surprised to know that Ken Mehlman, our own party chair, is in fact Jewish. That, the Lt. Governor of Maryland, Mark Steele (R-MD), is considering a run for U.S. Senate. Both the national party and the MD state party are both ready to support him at a moments notice. Republican Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA) is a Mormon (A group that considers themselves Christian but others, namely TED KENNEDY, consider them to be no more than a cult.) We Ran Alan Keyes in the 2004 Illinois Senate Race and, he gained the support of Republicans everywhere. It is unfair to call Republicans “prejudiced” just because “minorities” have traditionally voted for the Democrats. Don’t deem Republicans as “prejudiced” when Your own party chair makes STUPID comments like “I HATE Republicans”. Is this the way he hopes to bring new voters to his party? Is this the way he wants to Unify America? By, proclaiming that he “Hates” 50% of it. “I thought the comment that he made about the Republican Party being a white, Christian party was way over the top. It was divisive and wrong, and I hope he apologizes for it.” Senator Joseph Lieberman (D-CT). While Howard Dean is making a fool out of himself daily, Ken Mehlman is working hard to bring minority voters into the Republican Party: “Donna Brazile, a Democratic consultant and former campaign manager for Al Gore in 2000, is warning Democrats not to take blacks for granted — and not to underestimate Mehlman — saying Republicans could make greater inroads in the black community by the 2008 presidential election.” -http://www.blackamericaweb.com/site.aspx/bawnews/gop308
