Local coverage of Dr. Dean's opinion of those who disagree with him

This just in from reporter Jim Morrill of The Charlotte Observer who covered Dr. Dean's recent stop in Charlotte.

Speaking to reporters later on his bus, he dismissed the protesters.

"I'm not sure all of them are Clinton supporters," he said. "I think some of them are having fun at the Democrats' expense. I think shouting through somebody's speech is low-class."
Dr. Dean, I personally would probably not shout through your speech. But I think it low-class when you refuse to meet with rank and file Democrats, with the credentials to prove it, who have not interrupted your stumping; have been trying to get you to realize that you and the rest of the Party leadership are imperiling an institution, The Democratic Party, that many of us have supported ardently throughout the years; and who have been made to feel by you and your associates as though that support and dedication is as nothing to you. Not only is that low-class, it is none too bright, sir. Just as I would not have recommended that Senator Obama alienate much of his original base by the position he took on FISA among other things, I would suggest that you must stop dismissing a wing of the Party whose votes will be needed by the Democratic nominee - whoever that turns out to be.

Heidi and Marc, so many thanks for all you do to get the word out about the truly horrific things that have transpired with the DNC. It is so shocking that most people don't even really understand what has happend and continues to happen.

Just know that I'm with you 100%, as are the 18 Million others of all races, creeds and colors, as we join the fight to save our representative democracy.

I also appreciate your maintaining a standard of decency by refusing to publish posts which fall below the standard of civility and respectful commentary.

The arrogance of the current DNC leadership and his minions is beyond belief. You, Heidi Li, are actually more of a Democrat than they are. I have no idea which party they belong to. Keep up the good work.

If I were Dr. Dean and a group of people were trying to tell me something, I would suggest to sit down with them after the meeting and find out what it is they want me to hear.

Isn't this just common sense?

Unless, of course, I was afraid.

Is Dean planning to take his bus tour to all the states? Does anyone know the schedule so we can plan more protests throughout the country?

Thank you for being a vocal advocate on our behalf. You've been nothing but kind and patient to the DNC and in return you and millions of other Clinton supporters are attacked and vilified by our Democratic "leaders" and people in the media and blogosphere.
