Fisking Denny K.
So Denny K. held a press conference today, somewhere in Conneticut (Fairfield). Not even in his “home state”. He must be scared of the fact that VP Cheney is going to be in Ohio tonight (Akron to be exact) for a fundraiser. ($1,000 a plate to attend/$2,000 if you want a picture taken with the Veep)–or so the radio said.
But lets get back to Dennis Kucinich. and his “press conference“
Former Cleveland, Ohio mayor Dennis Kucinich, one of nine people seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, promoted his peace platform Sunday in Connecticut
It should be noted that among other things, when Denny K. was mayor of Cleveland, the city defaulted financially. He’s also ranked as the 7th worst metropolitan American mayor in the 20th century. He sucked more than the Indians did at the time. No word as to if he was wearing his tin-foil hat at the press conference.
Speaking before more than 200 people at a forum at Sacred Heart University, the four-term Ohio congressman, said he would establish a “Department of Peace.”
An early and vocal opponent of the war in Iraq,
And he still is one, even though we won.
Kucinich said the department would have various function to prevent violence both domestic and internationally
(more laughter). Yes, I can see this department venturing into high crime areas of cities to disrupt violence. I can just picture South Central LA or Cabrini-Green in Chicago…and don’t even start me on the Int’l part.
He said the department would work with the United Nations and other countries before conflicts arise.
The UN is irrelevant. It’s a joke, a third-world debating club–and Denny is dense enough to think it still works.
The lawmaker said his underdog bid for the nomination is gaining momentum
Sure…I belive that
with endorsements and volunteers
like who? The communist party? ANSWER/WWP? The hard-leftists at Brandeis (many of whom are “Peace, Conflict and Coexistance studies program members)?
Kucinich has hired a professional campaign staff, and expects campaign finance reports, which are due July 15, to show that he has raised more than $1 million
That’s a whole lot ‘o wasted money there folks.
He dismissed the notion that he would run as an independent if he did not win the Democratic nod.
Which he most likely won’t win
I’m a Democrat. I’m attracting people to vote – disaffected Democrats, Greens, Libertarians,” he said.
By dissafected Dems he means the far, far leftists. And to the best of my knowledge, most libertarians tend to vote for the GOP; as Dems don’t represent limited gov’t.
The forum, sponsored by Cultural Creatives in Action, a Connecticut-based peace group, had the feel of a 1960s peace rally, although most of the crowd was middle-aged.
What kind of group is that? What kind of name?
He drew ovations as he lashed out at the Bush administration and an expanding military budget.
BOOOO!!!! HISSS!!!! (Throwing rotten food/Aramark items at the stage). Why the hell would we cut the military budget? We need to keep it growing (for obvious reasons).
He said Americans “are aware their needs are not being met.”
What “needs” are you refering to? We’re more secure now, thanks to our expanded military budget. And we don’t want your highter taxes or socialized medicine either.
