Howard Dean assails Bush on defense.
Howard Dean launched a full-throated attack on President Bush's foreign policy acumen Sunday, saying Bush has "no understanding of defense," is conducting diplomacy by "petulance" and lacks "the backbone to stand up against the Saudis."
Amid a crush of well wishers seeking autographs at a high school here, Dean said of Bush: "I think he's made us weaker. He doesn't understand what it takes to defend this country, that you have to have high moral purpose. He doesn't understand that you better keep troop morale high rather than just flying over for Thanksgiving," as Bush did in visiting Baghdad.
At another town hall meeting, in Manchester, Dean added: "Mr. President, if you'll pardon me, I'll teach you a little about defense."
Thanks for the lessons Howard but our President doesn't need your vitriolic rantings concerning something you no nothing about. It's laughable that a two-bit governor of a state with more cows than people and more vietnam draft-dodgers than any other state, would dare to speak on defense and foreign policy issues. Maybe you can give President Bush some moguls or slalom lessons, but that's about it. I can't wait for the general election to see yet another Northeastern liberal get wiped off the electoral map.
