Panel discussion moderated by Cliff Kelley
Cliff Kelley echoes Dean's sentiments about standing up for what we believe in. He cites Karl Rove as commenting that John Kerry's biggest weakness was that he voted for the war. Maxine Waters, California Congresswoman, said she gets frustrated that Americans aren't angry enough about Bush. She defended Howard Dean for 'telling some truths' about Republicans and criticized those Dems who tried to distance themselves from Dean. And then she said Howard Dean didn't say enough. So let me. George Bush is a liar. He lied about the war. He lied about the budget. He forgot to tell you that Dick Cheney is a thief. The crowd roared. Because we need Democrats to tell it like it is, she said. Ladies and gentlemen, it is time for us to get angry. Take cack this country from the thieves and the liars and the robbers. And we are not going to be intimidated by anyone telling us that we are unpatriotic.
