Is Howard Dean affraid of a little one-on-one?

Drudge is reporting that on yesterday's Meet the Press, DNC Chairman Howard Dean did not want to go toe-to-toe with Mehlman.

Mehlman brought up Dean’s unwillingness to appear alongside him during the show: “I was hoping that Chairman Dean would be on sitting next to me this morning. Maybe we can do that on a future program. Look, he's somebody I've enjoyed getting to know. We meet in a lot of green rooms….” (Source: Drudge Report, Nov. 13, 2005)

No. He probably didn't have time to dispute the barrage of lies that Melhman put forward AND talk about the DNC veiwpoint.

SInce Meet the Press is not about correct flas information. Let me take a few of the lies Melhman told and correct them.

One was that the Senate intel report exonerated the administration of any effort to mislead the American people over Iraq. Wrong. They specifically did not look at that question.

He also said the Silbermann/Robb Commission concluded the same thing. Wrong. They too were specifically not authorized to examine that question.

He said the British Butler Report said the same thing. First of all, who cares what a Report written to cover Tony Blair said? Second of all, it said no such thing.

He said the Duelfer Report said Saddam "was trying to reconstitute his weapons programs." That is at best a highly, highly misleading description of the report.

He said that Saddam "had supported terrrorists, had terrorists operating out of his country." There are so many different lies and canards potentially underlying this claim it's hard to know where to start. But again, wrong. None of the purported evidence for this claim has ever stood up.

Anyone shocked by this? If you are then you need to wake up and realize that a little more than about two-thirds of the country find Bush with great disappointment.
