Howard Dean Puts the Pressure On

Howard Dean is getting a little nervous about the fate of the Democratic nomination and yesterday he turned up the heat in an interview with CNN. Dean told CNN that “he needs superdelegates to say who they’re for – and “I need them to say who they’re for starting now.””

We cannot give up two or three months of active campaigning and healing time,” the Democratic National Committee Chairman told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “We’ve got to know who our nominee is.”

Damn, Howard… Could you have at least waited a few more days until Pennsylvania votes? Is it me, or is it just a little ironic that the day after Obama fares poorly, oh so poorly in a debate, Dean pipes up and starts demanding that the Superdelegates state their intentions. So much for letting the voters decide.

    I am beyond disappointed in him and ashamed to admit that I was a Deaniac back when he seemed like a rock-ribbed fiscally conservative head of state with balanced budgets and a socially liberal policy history behind him.

    Here’s a cluebat for you, Howie: the voters are flying this plane and have been since 1783. STFU and let them steer.

    What a creep. I hear Hillary’s ahead something like a bezillion points in Kentucky for anyone who’s interested … By the time the upcoming elections are done, counting FL/MI as must be done if we’re to win, she’ll have creamed his spoiled, petulant, backside.

    Get your supers all lined up Howard. Get them to committ, so you can save your sorry ass as titular head of your little August party. Make your PREDETERMINED result official.

    I could care less what you do. The water is over the dam. The bridge has been burned. This working class Democrat of 37 years (with a Master’s degree in mathematics from Penn State) doesn’t forget her roots.

    Have your little garden party for Obama without me.

    Good Morning…. Hi Janis, Bazillion is a wonderful number and feels about right.

    Love it too…. yes, Dean the wanna-be pilot is not even being a very good steward. Sent my e-mail to tell them to stay out of it. We’re still in mid-air and lots more to go.

    GO PA for Hill!

    Although Bush and his cronies are at the top of my ‘pile-o-greasy-5h1t list’, close to them are Pelosi (impeachment off the table), Reid (FISA yo-yo and coward), and Dean (muddles, makes, and breaks primary rules at his whim).??5cr3w you, Howard Dean. What’s happening here? I get it! You give the ball a little nudge in a preferred direction, then ostensibly back off with the pretense of fairness dripping down your chin. It’s a replay, and just as odious as the first times around.
    It is more than reprehensible that Dean has been trying to steer this primary election. He claims we must hurry with this decision. Does that mean the DNC schedule was faulty? Does that mean more states should have held earlier primaries? It is obvious that Dean is in Obama’s pocket.
    I will not vote for McCain. But, I intend to change my voter registration to Republican and not donate anything to the Democratic Party for a long time. I also intend to convince others to do the same, as the only tangible way of getting the message across to my Democreepy Party.
