Dean said what?
I've seen this on more than one occasion now so I'm beginning to think it actually happened.
Howard Dean, the new DNC chairman, said during a meeting with the Democratic black caucus,
"You think the Republican National Committee could get this many people of color in a single room? Only if they had the hotel staff in here."
Can you believe that? Can you believe the black community continues to endorse a party with this attitude?
Would one possibly think that maybe, just maybe, this kind of perspective is why the Democrats
so vehemently oppose privatizing part of social security. They just seem to continually reinforce the idea that Democrats want to keep the poor down and dependent on the government. For some reason, unknown to me, it seems to have worked. BUT, if privatization occurs and the poorer folks begin acquiring some wealth, the floodgates could open and the mass exodus from the Democratic party could begin.
Just a thought.
