Howard Dean: ‘In A Globalized World, No Single Nation Can Shape The Future For Its People’

Howard Dean: ‘In A Globalized World, No Single Nation Can Shape The Future For Its People’

How’s that title grab ya kids? Yes, ladies and gentlemen; that is an actual quote from Howard Dean himself sending a welcoming message to the Party of European Socialists at their congress in December, 2009.  According to Howie, the American progressives and EU progressives have been working together for a long time. (My sincerest apologies for missing this a year ago.)

Any more doubts that the Democrats have become the American Progressive Socialist Party, or the future that the Democrats want where we have to follow the rules laid down by unelected officials on the other side of the world?

The cooperation between our parties has intensified significantly in the past two and a half years with regular contact at congress, senate, party and foundation levels. Efforts have been remarkable from both sides. The attendance of President Clinton and myself at the Global Progressive Forum World Conference in Brussels in 2009, I think is eloquent and proves this point very well. Many common initiatives have been launched. There’s been consistent work on the issue of the financial crisis, private equity and hedge funds with strong coordination between EU and US progressives. – Howard Dean, address to PES Congress, December 2009.

Party of European Socialists

This article is about the europarty established in 1992. For its current European Parliament Group and its predecessors dating back to 1953, see the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats.

The Party of European Socialists (PES) is a European political party led by Poul Nyrup Rasmussen MEP comprising social-democratic parties primarily from European Union member states, as well as other nations of the European continent. The PES member parties are themselves members of the Socialist International. The PES forms the majority of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S&D) group in the European parliament. The PES also operates in the Committee of the Regions and the European Council.

Howard Dean: Senate Healthcare Bill And The Tea Parties

One has to wonder what is going on inside the Democratic Party when Howard Dean is allowed to spend 15 minutes on Morning Joe bashing the senate’s healthcare bill. What may be of even more interest than Howard “not vigorously” supporting Obama’s re-election is the fact that the Tea Party movement now has 41% of the support in this country vs. 35% for the dems, and 28% for the republicans. Howard seems to think that we are not being painted accurately though, because nothing was mentioned in the question about “bringing guns to the legislature”. Just goes to show that Howard appears to believe everything he is reading in the biased medias’ pages and not attending any of the rallies.

The entire 15 minute segment can be found here, and it was actually rather interesting and informative.

As for the Wall Street Journal poll, I found one paragraph to be a wake up call for the democratic leadership (which I am sure they will ignore – thank you very much!):

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday that Democrats “fully intend to be in the majority” after November 2010, and she was now shifting to “campaign mode” to help candidates. Party officials are leaning on a number of longtime colleagues to fight for their seats rather than retire.

The Journal/NBC survey found Ms. Pelosi’s presence on the campaign trail could do more harm than good. Fifty-two percent said they would be less likely to vote for a candidate who agreed with the speaker almost all the time, compared with 42% who felt that way about candidates siding with Republican leaders.

It would appear it might be time to stuff Nancy in a closet to keep the sheeples from being reminded. Oh, Too Late! The Tea Party Patriots are going to make sure everybody who will listen will know the voting records of every single congressman and senator that is coming up for re-election!
