Which is the more offensive, or just plain stupid quote from this story?:
“When I’m president, we’ll do executive orders to overcome any wrong thing the Supreme Court does tomorrow or any other day,” (ed. note: this is the one getting big play on blogs today, because it’s obviously a total disregard for constitutional law.)
“The president has divided us,” former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean said. “He’s divided us by race by using the word ‘quotas.'” (ed. note: this is concerning Bush’s opposition to affirmative action, which is a legal way of “dividing the country by race”, is it not?)
Denis Kucinich :
“”If this president doesn’t want to let us be one nation, then it’s time to elect a president who will let us be one nation,” (ed. note: this is regarding the same thing, again, “one nation” implies equal treatment without regard to race, which is the antithesis of affirmative action.)
“Al Sharpton said Democrats shouldn’t be talking about getting more blacks in high places, but getting the right blacks.
‘If we doubt that, just look at (Supreme Court Justice) Clarence Thomas,” he said. “Clarence Thomas is my color, but he’s not my kind.’ (ed. note: So Al doesn’t want affirmative action for all blacks, only the ones who agree with him? He doesn’t want blacks who have succeeded in rising to positions of importance and success to be looked upon as role models for the black community, because they don’t agree with his politics. Remember that the next time Rev. Al has anything to say about race issues, ok?)
I could go on..
This is the best the Democratic Party can do in 2004?
