Bush is vunerable to truth

The propaganda from the conservatives is amusing in that, on one hand Gov. Dean is the ideal opponent for Bush to beat, and then so much energy is put forth denouncing his strength as a candidate.

Conservative pundits and politicians speak as though they are the guiding principle from which Democrats should adjust their philosophies. This may be so, as some Democrats have sold out the inherent social values instilled in the Democratic party. It is shameful that Joseph Lieberman thinks running on a Bush-lite ticket is a real choice for Americans.

What scares the heck out of the conservative machine is that Dean is the threat of 2004. Many forget a governor from Arkansas named Bill Clinton who came out of nowhere and, even after relentless assaults in the early primaries, went on to defeat Bush and presided for eight years.

George W. Bush is extremely vulnerable to a candidate who fearlessly lays the truth on the table for all to see. Bush is seriously damaging the core strengths of our country in short-sighted cooking-the-books fashion. Let's call it the United States of Halliburton or Enron.
