RNC Response to Howard Dean's 'Merlot Democrat' Attacks

WASHINGTON, Oct. 23 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The RNC issued the following statement from Communications Director Brian Jones in response to Howard Dean's comments today on ABC's This Week:


"Howard Dean today, as leader of the Merlot Democrats, displayed a troubling unwillingness and inability to acknowledge the real progress occurring in Iraq. Chairman Dean's criticism of an election where Iraqis turned out in record numbers to approve a constitution, illustrates that many in the Democrat party are still focused on pessimism and defeatism when it comes to advancing freedom in the Middle East and winning the War on Terror. Continually explaining what you are against and tossing out negative attacks is not an agenda, despite Chairman Dean's claims."
