(CNN) – Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean has issued a statement reacting to the shooting at the Arkansas Democratic Party headquarters:
"This senseless tragedy comes as a shock to all of us. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Chairman Gwatney and his family and we pray for his full and speedy recover," he said. "While the investigation of this shooting continues, and our primary concern remains with Bill and his family, we commend the courageous and speedy action of law enforcement officials in apprehending the suspect."
Mr. Dean, do you any of these same thoughts for the Georgians ?
Who cares what that screaming , coniving idiot thinks. He did not care to shaft Hillary Clinton along with the democrat leadership.
This is horrible. IUnfortunately, it is the kind of thing we can expect in today's climate of hate and division which is promoted by the right wingers.
Check the McCain campaign...
There is no place for hate politics in the United States of America ,
I hope they catch the idiot that is reponsible for the shooting.
Howard Dean is as cheezy as they come. I hope he means what he says because he sure as hell does not care about 18 million voters.
Once again...Let us show concern for the man who was shot. That is what this is all about! I hope is will recover.
really sucks what happened, prayers to all the families of the people there. hope people can leave politics out of this, however given the decline of discourse here in this country, I bet it will be 5 posts before someone blames a conservative.
This is one of the players behind the destruction of the Democratic party...take a good look, folks!
How can anyone disagree on this? It's senseless violence, and it's disgusting. I don't care which side of the aisle you're on, you have to agree that this kind of violence is completely unacceptable.
Give it a break Raymond, if that's your real name. Hillary Clinton lost. She could not manage her own campaign, people that she hired to work for her, how in God's name was she going to run an entire country? What in the world is it about a woman being President?
Disgruntled GOPer? :)
Let's all wish Gwatney and his family well. This should never have happened.
Raymond, you idiot, what the heck does that has to do with this situation. someone was seriously hurt at the end of one of you!!!
The right to bear arms is still alive and well in the good old U.S.A.!
I wonder if your country will ever realize the days of the wild west are over it's now the 21st century. The James gang no longer rules the west and sooner or later everyone will be able to put down their guns and resolve differences logically and diplomatically.
Howard Dean said that with out blaming the curent administration. I'M shocked!
this should be condemned; this is NOT a time to play poiltics when the shooting of innocent lives is involved.
NEVER forget about America's home-grown fanatics! Whoever's responsible for this needs to have the book thrown at them.
My prayers go out the chairman and his family.
you seriously need to get over hillary, its nobodys fault she lost but her own SHE RAN A HORRIBLE CAMPAIGN, the dnc, obama, the media were not responsible for her campaign SHE WAS GET OVER IT WAKE UP STOP BLAMING ACCEPT THE FACTS HILLARY LOST BECAUSE OF HILLARY god i am sick of it!!!
My thoughts are with the family of the victim. I hope this shooting is not politically or hate motivated. That would be a dark spot on this country's claim to democracy.
What a fitting picture of the man who is at the center of the political s.. storm created by telling Americans, that only 1/2 the votes of one states certified election count and oh, don't bother registering Senator Obama in the state of Michigan, Howard 'Yeehaw' Dean will ensure you get 1/2 of their 1/2 of votes as well.
Unfortunately attitude begets violance and for a Democratically advertised country, we've reverted to allowing a self choosen few tell us what's best for us.
While this act of violence is extremely unfortunate, while Mr. Yeehaw Dean, Pelosi and Reid have worked so very hard these past months to pick the Democratic Candidate, while Hillary Clinton has focused on issues IMPORTANT to the American Public....then they tried to stop the DEMOCRATIC process from completing.
By the way Mr. Dean – that process completes with the conclusion of the upcoming convention..is it you're objective to now 'DICTATE' to the delegate representatives to vote for Senator Obama? It's bad enough that Bill Richardson, amungst other 'super' delegates have gone against the popular vote during the primaries and endorsed Obama.
Please – allow the American Voters popular vote voices to be heard this convention and thank you for returning determing Democracy to the democratic process of allowing the American public to be heard!
No one has a moral authority to end someone's else life? It is unacceptable in America, and those who cheerish such lunatic action ought to be ashamed of themselves!. I wish you a quick recovery mr Chairman.
Really, are Clinton supporter heartless. An innocent man is fighting for his life. we are all Americans, what is wrong with you folks!!
A man was shot today, and all some of you care about, still, is the fact that Hillary lost after a poorly managed campaign. Get your priorities straight please. I agree with Brian from Pittsburgh. No matter what side of the aisle you are on, this is a horrible tragedy and my thoughts and prayers go to the family of the chairman. I hope he makes a full recovery!!
The more I read these blogs the more Ignorant people sound, my God its not about Howard Dean its not about Hillary Clinton and her 18 million voters that will not pay her debt, it is about a Man, A human being with a wife and children regardless wheather he is a Democrat or Republican may God be with him and his family and may God have mercy on your souls
