Rutledge,VT/ News from Suburban NY
CNBC's incessant talking head, known as 'Howdy Doody" by his detractors, took on former VT. Governor, and DNC Chairman Howard Dean in a post mortem discussion of the disastrous Massachusetts election which all but blew the Obama agenda off the US map.
Dean, the Vermont Governor for 5 two year terms, credited with balancing the budget 11 times and reducing debt, had been critical of the Obama approach to governing the country and advancing the Democratic Agenda.
Matthews introduced the Governor on his low rated show "Hair Balls" and then proceeded to conduct the interview as follows:
CM: Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen! Tonight we have with us the slightly wacky off center former Governor of Vermont, who has not been able to meet the expectations of the recent emigrants to his state, from the Great City of New York.
Good Evening Governor! What do you say to your critics that say you haven't supported their efforts to reconstitute the state of Vermont into the likeness of the Great City of NY? Do you hate Jews? Aren't you really an anti semite?
HD: Well Chris....
CM: We all know you balanced the budget in your state before the New Yorkers arrived in force, and even provided health care for kids and pregnant mothers, but why have you abandoned the residents of NY in their quest for more and more entitlements and their demands to curtail the economic progress of the state by adding more confining regulations to small business.?
HD: Chris, I've....
CM: After all, these people are coming from a sophisticated area of the country, a financial center of the universe, a state that has been overwhelmingly left leaning for a long time....they see Vermont has a long way to go to be brought up to the standards they've been used to. How do you answer their challenge to your weak kneed leadership?
HD: For 28 years I've....
CM: And now, you criticize Obama! How can you justify that? Did you go out and stump for Marcia (sic) what ever her name is in Massachusettes (sic), did you go to the wall to protect the legacy of that great American, Teddy Kennedy...a man who served himself well for 47 years....a family who has roots in the American Revolution, that when they dumped all the tea, old man Kennedy made sure everyone in Boston had IRISH WHISKEY at a good price?
HD: I don't drink, but let me say...
CM: No! You never did anything to help the cause. Now Health Care has shit the bed. Cap & Trade is nothing more than a wet fart, Union Control is up in the air, all Obama's got left is the takeover of those evil bankers and the redistribution of all that wealth in the 401ks of those right wing retired conservatives...how do you explain yourself?
HD: If I could, Chris...
CM: Don't interrupt Howard. Act like a man...I'm trying to treat you like a man.
HD: I thought I was a man...I am a man...I'm very manly, actually,.....
CM: I gave you your chance Howard. We have just a few seconds left...how would you sum up your failure for the Democratic Party, and how can you live with yourself....Wait, hold it a minute, I've got to take this call
from Keith Olbermann...I think I forgot to mention "Scum Sucking Maggot and Tea Bagging...."
HD: Thanks for having me on.
