DNC: Dean - Democrats Show Why Americans Trust Them to Keep the Country Safe

WASHINGTON, Aug. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean issued the following statement after Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid signed a bill that implements the recommendations of the 9-11 Commission and makes our country safer and more secure:

"Democrats have again kept their promise to the American people and showed why Americans trust them to keep the country safe," Dean said. "Even with Republicans blocking them every step of the way, Democrats implemented the recommendations of the bipartisan 9-11 Commission. President Bush and his Republican allies wasted years playing politics with our security. Republicans ignored these recommendations, letting Al Qaeda rebuild while they chose instead to focus on Bush's war of choice in Iraq . But the American people have had enough. They hired Democrats in November to reverse years of Republicans' failed policies, and once again Democrats have delivered for America."
