Howard Dean Forgets He Said He Wouldn’t Vigorously Support Barack Obama In 2012
A few days ago Howard Dean made headlines by saying to MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough that he wouldn’t be vigorously supporting Barack Obama for re-election (via Newsbusters):
DEAN: I’m going to support President Obama when he runs for re-election. Not vigorously. I’m going to vote for him.
Scarborough can be heard bursting into laughter off-camera.
DEAN: I am, I am.
SCARBOROUGH: “Not vigorously.” Boy, I can almost feel the confetti falling on my head here!
But now he’s telling David Gregory that he really is going to support Obama vigorously (also via Newsbusters)
DAVID GREGORY: Given your own fight within the Democratic party, indeed wtihin the Obama administration, do you intend to stay in the Democratic party?
HOWARD DEAN: Of course! Absolutely. I’ve said I would vigorously support the president’s re-election in 2012. I have every intention of doing that.
I wonder if one of Obama’s people made a call to Dean and told him they were “keeping score.”Tags: Asshats, Domestic Issues, Politics
