Top FL Dem: Howard Dean must go

DENVER -- As he sits on a bus heading to the last night of the Democratic national convention, State Rep. Luis Garcia of Miami Beach offered four parting words: "Howard Dean must go."

Garcia, who serves as vice chairman of the Florida Democratic Party, said Dean should be stripped of his post because of the national party's crackdown on Florida and Michigan for holding early primaries. The two battleground states were shut out of the history-making campaign and nearly banned from the convention.

"What he has done to Florida, I won't forgive him for,'' Garcia said. "I take it personally. I've been telling this to everyone who will listen, and I don't think it's falling on deaf ears."

Garcia needs all the help the FDP can offer to hold onto his seat. Even though he is right -- Dean has to go -- that's probably not the best way to ensure help is on the way.

What HE has done to Florida? Seriously? This is what shows up on the Typepad?

Howard Dean is not George Bush. He doesn't make unilateral decisions. Howard Dean is not US Attorney General Mukasey. He doesn't turn a blind eye on broken rules or excuse the behavior. Dean worked with a committee. And that committee had rules. Good gravy!

History is being made.

Someone should ask Rep. Garcia why he actively promoted and voted in favor of moving up the primary election even though it was a clear violation of party rules and the DNC had warned that the state would be punished for it. Why is Rep. Garcia such a coward that he refuses to take responsibility for his own actions and seeks to blame Howard Dean?
