Hot on the heels of the "screaming" success of his presidential campaign, Dean remarked that Bush won by dividing the country over "guns, God and Gays." Making him one of only a handful of people in America who don't realize the obvious -- that Bush was elected primarily by his resolve to support the Iraqis bid for freedom and democracy, and more importantly, he's committment to protecting American citizens from the continued global threat of terrorism. And the Democrats helped reinforce that position by drawing media attention whenever a Republican would mention the events of 9/11.
Taking it a step further, I believe that Bush won in spite of his position on Guns, God and Gays. At least that's the case for many independents and moderates such as myself, which I believe is the constituency that the Democratic Party candidates have to woo if they want to have any chance of winning in the midterm elections and in 2008. That said, Howard Dean is hardly the person to bring them there.
Showing further how out of touch he is, Dean has also claimed in the past that in addition to using "Guns, God and Gays" to purposely divide the country, Republicans also "stir up racial prejudices to win presidential elections." Howard is right on the last part, since highlighting some of the racial attacks against Bush cabinet members Colin Powell and Condolezza Rice has definitely helped him get reelected.
