I guess this is sort of a loser’s relay race, because Gore apparently has agreed to pass the baton to Dean.
Also, will someone please tell Dean to drop it with this 9/11 consipiracy theory nonsense. I wrote about it the other day, and yesterday, Dean once again babbled about it. This time it was on Fox News, and to be fair, he was not the one who brought it up, but his answer was not confidence inspiring:
WALLACE: The most interesting theory is that the president was warned ahead of time by the Saudis. Why would you say that, Go who believe that. We don’t know what happened in 9/11. Tom Kean is trying to get some information from the president…
WALLACE: Do you believe that?
DEAN: … which doesn’t — no, I don’t believe that. I can’t imagine the president of the United States doing that. But we don’t know, and it’d be a nice thing to know.
WALLACE: I’m just curious why you would call that the most interesting theory.
DEAN: Because it’s a pretty odd theory.
What we do believe is that there was a lot of chatter that somehow was missed by the CIA and the FBI about this, and that for some reason we were unable to decide and get clear indications of what the attacks what were going to be. Because the president…
WALLACE: I guess…
DEAN: Because the president won’t give the information to the Kean commission we really don’t know what the explanation is.
Dean- the only acceptable answer is ‘Anyone who thinks the President knew about the attacks prior to 9/11 is mentally unbalanced.’ The Governor keeps trying to have his cake and eat it too. If you can not ‘imagine’ the President knowing about the attack in demand, why do you keep insisting that there are documents that would cleare this up that Bush refuses to give to the Kean commission. The reason is because you are being a weasel. Dean knows damned well that the only documents not being turned over to the Kean commission are several classified security briefings, and while they are not being formally turned over, some commission members are allowed to peruse the documents.
This guy is arrogant, hot-headed, condescending, dishonest, and has the wrong ideas regarding foreign policy and fiscal policy. I am going to love the general election. A long time friend (and former McCain supporter) the other day noted that he had sent $100 bucks to the Dean campaign, because “he is thoroughly unelectable.”
