    Not much different than what one of our moderators in this forum calls the republican party ... these people really believe this crap. But of course it's always the right playing the race card ... yup ... the right.

    Antoher lie by Dean, Bush has appointed more minorites to higher positions in his cabinet than any other President in US history. I know that the left likes to believe that Republicans are racists, but how many minorites have spent the weekend in Hyanissport?

    http://www.usatoday.com/educate/college/polisci/articles/20041219.htm

    With little fanfare and not much credit, President Bush has appointed a more diverse set of top advisers than any president in history.

    In his first term, Bush matched the record that President Clinton set in his first term for appointing women and people of color to the Cabinet , and Bush had a more diverse inner circle at the White House. Since his re-election last month, the president has made a series of groundbreaking nominations.

    Bush has named his White House lawyer, Alberto Gonzales, to be the first Hispanic to hold one of the powerful "big four" Cabinet jobs, attorney general.

    He named his national security adviser, Condoleezza Rice, to be the first female African-American secretary of State, the Cabinet 's senior position.

    He also nominated Margaret Spellings, his domestic policy adviser, to lead the Education Department and Cuban-born business executive Carlos Gutierrez to head Commerce.


    Like most, Democrats, Dean doesn't let a little thing like the facts, get in the way

    Actually, Hyannisport has a considerable black and Cape Verdean population... See, Hyport extends a bit further than the Kennedy compound, not that you'd have a clue about that. .... Facts, indeed.

    I think it is possible to appoint a fair number of women and people of color to high posts, and still be bad for the mass of women and people of color, by comparison to alternatives; although I do not know Howard Dean personally, I think that since he is talking about "who you're voting for," he is talking about the impact of an administration on the entirety of society, rather than solely on a handful of high positions.

    Obviously, it is a good thing when an administration symbolizes acceptance of non-white-male populations. It is even better when those populations also thrive during the time that said administration is in power.

    If, for example, Condi Rice makes $300 K per year (I don't know the real number,) that would translate to an average increase of a dollar a year for 300,000 women, or 300,000 African Americans. I believe there are about 155 million women/girls, and 45 million African Americans -- these numbers are probably not quite right, but in the right order of magnitude. So Condi being secretary of state is offset by a fraction of a penny's difference in conditions among these groups, as applied to these groups.

    If there are another 1,000 said individuals serving in the Bush Administration, that still yields a barely noticeable impact on these large groups, easily counteracted by a comparative economic disadvantage over these large groups under the Bush administration.

    Result: High marks for the symbols, low marks for the follow-through.

    So the government needs to hire 1 million or so minorities to work in D.C.
    to prove a point? What is the logic here? There are only so many positions to fill in DC.

    Not sure I get your point... What glass house do I live in? When do I come running the aid of Democrats at every turn? Ooops, almost never happens.... Keep making up crap.... Con man. ... There's really no comparison between your desperate partisan agenda to my bi-partisan distrust of a blatantly failed system. ... Good try, though.

    And here's you running to the aid of political allies on here, as well... LOL...

    Anyhow, con man, if he meant the compound, he should have typed it.

    If he said it like that, it would be offensive, but then again he's a member of the white party. If he referred to the Democratic party as culturally and racially diverse, I don't think people would disagree. Do you disagree that the Republican Party is overwhelmingly white (though of course historically Italians were not always considered white under American immigration law, so in that sense maybe the Republican Party is fairly integrated). What race do you consider yourself?

    Nice avoidance of being held accountable, running from your pathetic "glass house" comment... Good job!
