Received this today. Not one word about the whole story..if we complain we are told not to make waves. They only present one side, they are trying to stir up all the Democrats here. Of course it will work when you have the media with you.

From a county chairperson:

"The following article is from TIME and was sent to me by the DEC Chairs Assn. If my phone calls from registered Dems are any indication, many, many of them will not get out to vote in the primary, either because they figure their votes wonít count or they are just plain disgusted with the party. We need to impress on the DNC that they must to change their minds. More is at stake here than the delegates. The Republicans would rejoice if we donít go to the polls since their tax package is also on the ballot! The DNC phone# is (202) 863-8000. The contributions # is (877) 336-7200. They need to hear from you- all of you- on this issue. Please forward this to anyone on you email list that you think would be interested."


Then she copies the entire ugly Time article about Dean.

Will Dean's War on Florida Backfire?

I won't post any of the article.

I am angry at the way this is being handled here. They are not presenting two sides at all. She attaches one of the worst of the articles which also gives no other side.

It is an orchestrated attack on Howard Dean and the DNC, and I will have none of it. It is not based on truth, it is based on propaganda. They have been proven wrong. They don't care. They are on a one-sided mission here, and Bill Nelson is leading the way.

Proof. Vindication. Both Florida parties did it for "relevance." From March.

Stand firm, Governor Dean.

From the Time article: Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean speaks at the kick-off countdown rally at the Pepsi Center in Denver on August 22, 2007. Denver is the host city for the 2008 Democratic Party Convention.

I know for a fact they are getting negative feedback about the way they are handling it. They discount it. They only are counting the voices if they are what they want to hear.

I don't believe in my lifetime I have seen such an outlandish use of propaganda by a group against their own party. They don't even feel embarrassed.
