Election ’08: Talk with the Candidates’

Washington Post
Excerpt
Rep. Dennis Kucinich: Good morning everyone, this is Dennis Kucinich, I’m looking forward to this chat and to explain why I alone out of all Democratic candidates I alone will lead to peace, prosperity, health care and jobs for all. I thank you very much for participating.

_______________________

Fort Worth, Texas: With your rock-solid positions on the war in Iraq and healthcare — for example, your recent vote against the proposed government catastrophic health care coverage for children because as you said, it didn’t go far enough– you seem to represent, perhaps more than any other candidate, the idealistic bedrock of the Democratic Party. But given the complexity of governing the United States, if you become president, don’t you think that you will have to show more ability to compromise than that?

HL’s Take Read the whole Interview, and you will see Dennis is the only candidate worth voting for. Don’t forget about Dennis’ fundraiser and speech in Sierra Madre this Saturday. Scroll down to the big green Dennis pic for all the details


Another Bushie Forced to Resign for Telling Truth

ScreenshotRetired Vice Admiral Scott Redd, the director of the National Counterterrorism Center, told NBC News this weekend that the U.S. is not tactically safer as a result of the Iraq war. That message defied the official line from White House counterterrorism adviser Fran Townsend, who said the
threat level would have been worse&
had we not attacked Iraq.

Redd also acknowledged that, over the short term, the Iraq war has created a giant recruiting tool for terrorists. Watch it:

Today, Redd announced his sudden resignation from the NTC. The AP reports:

Retired Vice Adm. John Scott Redd said he is stepping down next month to have a long-delayed surgery and spend more time with his five grandchildren and the rest of his family. His spokesman, Carl Kropf, said Redd needs to have both knees replaced. The surgery will require follow-up rehabilitation and would have meant a prolonged absence from the center.

In a note to employees, Redd provided an upbeat assessment of the administration’s fight against terrorism, which appeared to contradict his statements made to NBC just a few days earlier. I believe that as a country we are better prepared today than at any time in our history to wage this war, he said in his note, neglecting to mention his view that America is actually less safe today because of the Iraq war.
