Dean: Republicans "Have To Change
Their Philosophy" Of "Beating Up"
On Gays, Immigrants & Women

Real Clear Politics, by Ian Schwartz

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/12/2012 11:37:32 AM

Former DNC Chairman Howard Dean says Republicans will have to change their philosophy and not just their ground game in order to win in the future. Dean says conservatives can not sell hate of women, gays and immigrants and expect to win elections. HOWARD DEAN: The big problem is though, that ground game is not enough to win. The fact of the matter is you can not peddle hate of immigrants, gays and lesbians, and women by saying that God´s will was to make women pregnant when they were raped.

Comments:
I guess Dean must have missed the "philosophy" of the Democrats in the union beating up innocent people. s/o What is so terribly disturbing is that you never hear Republicans fighting back against these continuous lies and misrepresentations. It´s no wonder we lost.

Christians are so blessed to KNOW right from wrong (and I mean Christians, not those pretend-to-be christians).
The rest of the world is left with opinions, emotions, what the majority wants or who happens to have the most power.

Why should the Republicans deny a negative?
That is so much twaddle - AND they are dead right in opposing gay marriage. That is beyond stupid.

FTA: "The big problem is though, that ground game is not enough to win. The fact of the matter is you cannot peddle hate of immigrants, gays and lesbians, and women by saying that God´s will was to make women pregnant when they were raped."

Republicans don´t hate immigrants, gays or women! That is what the Democrat Propaganda Machine is churning out and in typical fashion; Howard beats this straw man to the best of his ability. It´s also being accepted by the ignorant public as fact!
IT ISN´T TRUE! It is a lie... IT IS PROPAGANDA... PROPAGANDA that is no different than what Hitler sold to the German population that allowed him to kill 6+ million Jews with the German citizen´s approval.

I have no problems with LEAGAL immigrants, But I do have A BIG problem with illegal invaders (so called undocumented citizens) as do most people and if you check mr dean the stupid republicans have given into to your demands for citizenship for these felons more than the democrapts have. As to woman I do believe Republicans treat woman as equals more than the democrapts do, we just don´t feel its a right to pay for them to be sluts, with free contraceptives so they can have irresponsible sex when ever they feel like it. And as for sexual deprived men and women its a choice and why should someones choice be made a civil right and become a protected class of people...
I really guess animal farm has come to fruition, some people are more equal than others.

How to deny a negative - I don´t give losers, whiners & beggars the time of day. That means I IGNORE them as much as possible - their opinions, conversations & etc. are met with stone silence. I do not engage them at all. It makes them uncomfortable & they cannot stand being ignored. Freezing & isolating these types cannot be construed as "beating up on" anyone. If I don´t initiate an action, I have not "beat up" on anyone. Sometimes just looking through them is all that is needed - you cannot be accused of anything. Remember this when your lib relatives come for Christmas & try to lecture you about their virtues.

Dean and other Democrats make these spurious charges under the guise of helping improve us. Mr Dean, we need no improvement, since we don´t do the deeds with which you slander us. We all personally know gays, immigrants and women and want no harm to come to them. Having a difference of opinion regarding one thing or another isn´t beating up on people. It is another way of thinking in order resolve an issue. In all cases no harm comes to any of these people/groups. The resolution might bring some political peace to our society, but we know for sure that isn´t what they want. The turmoil is the Democrats stock in trade.

I am conservative and am tired of hearing from no talent has beens from both parties offering advice to people that they do not understand.

The DNC has no clue what the American people outside of Washingtons liberal circles want or need. They are very good a propaganda but are very elitist.

THe RNC has a clue but not the balls to stand and fight for it. They are also absolute babbling idiots on the propaganda front.

Why is it necessary to hear from the deranged like Dean, Clinton, Rove? They are losers and has beens at best just trying to remind us that they still exist, and I really don´t care.

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the

The Obama administration is considering whether to require that television broadcasts of emergency announcements be provided in different languages. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Thursday said it is reconsidering a rule that would provide Spanish broadcasts of emergency alerts and other important announcements. The rule was originally recommended in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Back then, groups including the Minority Media and Telecommunications Council (MMTC) petitioned the FCC to require broadcasters to notify Spanish listeners in the event of an emergency. "MMTC filed its petition on Sept. 22, 2005, in response to its perceived deficiencies in distributing multilingual emergency information

Passing comprehensive immigration reform is more important than Democrats´ success at the polls in November, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday. A number of Republicans and other conservative voices have accused Pelosi and the Democrats of using the immigration reform issue as a political crutch, suggesting the Democrats would rather keep the issue alive for campaign purposes than actually pass a bill. But Pelosi on Thursday rejected that notion outright, and she didn´t mince words. "I believe, and I say this with all the sincerity I have, that it is more important to pass comprehensive immigration reform —

The unethical and illegal behavior of Democratic state senators in California, where Democrats have total control of the state legislature, is giving the state’s Democratic Party concerns that the GOP may use the misbehavior to regain power. Since the beginning of 2014, every month has featured a Democratic state senator either being arrested or convicted. The latest arrest came Wednesday, as Sen. Leland Yee of San Francisco was arrested on federal corruption charges. The federal government charged Lee with conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and illegally importing firearms. In January, Sen. Rod Wright of Inglewood was convicted of

President Obama said Pope Francis did not raise Obamacare “in detail” when they met on Thursday, but that in a separate meeting with the Vatican’s secretary of state “we discussed briefly the issue of making sure that conscience and religious freedom was observed in the context of applying the law.” At a joint press conference with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Obama also acknowledged that he differs with the Vatican’s stance on some issues, but added that he “heartily” agrees with most of its positions. During his nearly hour-long papal audience, Obama said Pope Francis “actually did not touch in

The Saratogian newspaper reports that the course will be offered by Skidmore College, a private, liberal arts college in Saratoga Springs.

Republicans ramp up planning to replace

The Republican Party´s rising Senate prospects are forcing House Republicans to craft a health care agenda that could function as a feasible legislative blueprint for overhauling Obamacare in January 2015. The Republican-controlled House has approved legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act and reform aspects of the law several times, only to see the bills die in a Democratic-led Senate that is committed to preserving the law. That dynamic would change if Republicans win six Democratic-held seats and assume control of the Senate in November, as appears increasingly possible.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

"There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge," Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters.

According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent. In the AP poll,

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time.

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text
