54. Howard Dean Supporters That Refuse To Hold Him Accountable
Edited on Wed Jan-21-04 06:34 PM by cryingshame
are pretty much his biggest problem.

A lot of Dean's money was raised by his supporters sending money everytime he screwed something up.

This is like rewarding a child for repeated, inappropriate behavior.

Howard Dean and his campaign have made numberous blunders. His speech was the last straw and largely a result of his supporters blaming everyone else for Dean's past mistakes or their pretending his mistakes didn't happen.

That speech was completely inappropriate behavior.

Dean may have helped forge new ways of raising money on the internet but he cannot expect to forge new attitudes in voters minds about First Ladies making at least a TOKEN show of support in public AND how a Concession Speech should sound.

If Dean keeps spending money with sinking polls he will look like even more of a fool then he did during his "I Have A Scream Speech".

If Dean really cared about the Democrats and this Country he would get out of the race NOW and not prolong the agony.

At some point you have to realise that your "Little Johnnie" will never be a Major League Baseball player and be strong enough to break the news to him. Sometimes you have to be honest even if it is painful or unpleasant. Parents that love their children hold their children accountable- that is the only way they will learn.
