    Howard Dean blasts White House for treating liberals with 'contempt'

    So... it's not just the members of the GOP that the Obama White House treats like dog crap they scraped off their shoes... it's pretty much everyone.

    Howard Dean blasts White House for treating liberals with 'contempt' - CSMonitor.com

    Speaking at a Monitor-sponsored breakfast with reporters, Mr. Dean said, “The core issue is the contempt” with which not just progressives “but lots of people were treated by a group of senior advisers around the president who had been here for 20 years and thought they knew everything and we knew nothing. That is a fundamental flaw in any kind of administration.”

    Dean, a former presidential candidate and Vermont governor, tried to steer the conversation away from naming specific departing advisers. “It was more than just [outgoing press secretary Robert] Gibbs or Rahm” Emanuel, the recently departed White House chief of staff, he said. “It was the whole mindset that was going on there.”

    “Most of the people who were doing this stuff are either out of the White House or going,” Dean said.

    Guess that makes him a centrist then. What's that expression about compromises? They leave nobody satisfied. But at least Obama is getting some things done.

    Not everyone, just people that aren't large Goldman Sachs type contributors. It's called government by rich lobby.
