Do you really believe what you just typed? The Democrats have used these "stupid emotional issues" to polarize people - not the "right wingers" Who is making a big deal of this flag flap? could it be the other Democrats? Dean is trying to steal the "big tent" tactic that Bush used but he's not even close to moderate enough for it to work. It's unfortunate to see that the other Democrats don't see it that way and they still want to not include certain types Oh, and before you think that is a defense of Dean - it is not. Dean is just trying to pander to the south even though he still stereotypes them - hell of a great way to win influence, no?Originally posted by: SuperTool
Dean is right. Rightwingers like to polarize people over these stupid emotional issues that are irrelevant to most people's lives. Dean is just saying, fine, have a confederate sticker on your car, have your guns, drive your pickups, you are still welcome in the Democratic party because there are more important issues than that.
The biggest difference between GOP and Dems is fiscal policy. The level of spending has been a wash or higher with GOP control, but one party seeks to match taxation with spending and let the economy take care of itself, and another seeks to run huge deficits to stimulate the economy.
