Howard Dean stated today that the best way to get the Presidential candidates to talk would be to bar the press from the debate. "If you want to hear the truth from them, you have to exclude the press," Dean said.
The press, for all its many, many flaws, is how We The People hear the news. Excluding the press from a Presidential debate is tantamount to saying exclude the public from the debate. And here you have the truth about how the Dems think of We The People: “We’ll say what we really think and believe, but only if the people can’t hear it.” What better evidence could there be of their lack of confidence in their electability: They have to hide their core beliefs to get elected, because if the American people knew what the Dems really believed, they’d be run out of town on a rail.
