    Please tell me, what election was stolen by Republicans?
    We know Kennedy beat Nixon in the Obama/Blago/Daley Beltway thanks to Democrat corruption, and Nixon let it slide for the good of the nation... but Republicans stealing an election?

    Where?

    Let me help you get over your Eight year old sore spot.
    The NY Times serves as a good enough reference for you I hope.



    USA Today good enough too?



    Now, please tell all your friends who think Bush stole the election in 2000.
    Bush and the republicans did steal the 2000 election.

    First they scrubbed the voter registration rollcall-much the same way they tried to do it this past election when Tony Romo and Mickey Mouse appeared on a few registration sheets and ACORN was laughingly accused of rigging an election.

    Second, they had republican operatives shut down the recount so that any deadline for a recount would not be met.

    Third, they had the single worst SCT decision in history handing the election to Bush the lesser. I believe both Scalia and Thomas had family working on Team Bush. They should have recused themselves. I agree with Bugliosi on his summation of the Bush v Gore decision: But I (Bugliosi) personally will stake my prosecutorial reputation, if I have one, on the proposition that within the pages of The Betrayal of America I prove beyond all reasonable doubt that these justices were absolutely up to no good, and they deliberately set out to hand the election to George Bush.

    As for the recount, Gore won under ANY statewide recount, i.e., a recount of all the votes of the state.

    There are no adults in charge. Thinking like this is exactly why we're in the trouble we're in. You're doing the same thing the Republicans were doing, adhering to blind partisanship. You think the Democrats really supported Bush? Everything was along party lines except for terrorist stuff in which both sides eagerly engaged in treason. Yeah, the Republicans are being obstructionists, so was the other side when they were in the minority. Both parties are run by children, both parties are equally bad, inept, and corrupt.

    Obama is not proving himself any different than Bush, the only change was the D from an R.

    I see you are desperately trying to keep spreading the same tired old Liberal lie again. I guess you willingly missed this story after the attempts of Al Gore and the Democrat party to steal an election and disenfranchise the voters of Florida by divining votes from hanging chads failed:

    In the first full study of Florida's ballots since the election ended, The Miami Herald and USA Today reported George W. Bush would have widened his 537-vote victory to a 1,665-vote margin if the recount ordered by the Florida Supreme Court would have been allowed to continue, using standards that would have allowed even faintly dimpled "undervotes" -- ballots the voter has noticeably indented but had not punched all the way through -- to be counted.

    Online NewsHour: Media Recount: Bush Won

    Honestly, the tireless tirades by Liberals about stolen elections and war of choice are specious and already disproved by the facts a very long time ago; try to find a new way to support the socialist agenda of Obama which will destroy the economy for decades to come.

    Under any methodology involving a statewide recount of Florida votes, Gore wins.

    Which part of that statement are you missing?

    Even if that's true -- and it isn't -- the only totals that matter are the ones counted according to the law.

    Bush won that one.

    Well that's just not true. A quick search of articles from the first month of the Bush presidency proves that Democrats were making an effort to contribute to bipartisan governance. Sure, they were angry about the stolen election, but rather than call for the failure of the Bush administration they looked at their own mistakes and tried to find a way to contribute.


    A critical question facing Democrats is when to compromise. Party leaders say they are wary about being seen as obstructionists, blocking a president who promised to end the gridlock in Washington. Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, the Connecticut Democrat who was Vice President Al Gore's running mate, said Democrats needed to reach out and work with Mr. Bush when they could.

    Mr. Bush's Smooth Start
    Many Washington Democrats acknowledge with grudging admiration that the word ''honeymoon'' does not really capture the atmosphere of the first two weeks of the Bush presidency. Despite the understandably bitter reaction to John Ashcroft and to President Bush's anti-abortion stance on foreign aid, Democrats in Washington admit to being impressed by the new president's charm offensive, nicknames and all, and by the tactical dexterity of the White House's presentation of its agenda of issues.

    Obviously the FACTS and these Liberal journals do not agree with your denial. Carry on; your clown like attempts to re-write the record is illustrative of partisan hackery gone wild.

    Show me the exception to the statement Gore won under any statewide recount. I haven't found one.

    On the second matter, you are correct. Thanks to the corrupt SCT decision, arbitrary deadlines matter more than accuracy in counting votes.

    Adding to the following, several statisticians said a Gore win was statistically equivalent to impossible.

    The NY Times serves as a good enough reference for you I hope.

    EXAMINING THE VOTE: THE OVERVIEW; Study of Disputed Florida Ballots Finds Justices Did Not Cast the Deciding Vote
    A comprehensive review of the uncounted Florida ballots from last year's presidential election reveals that George W. Bush would have won even if the United States Supreme Court had allowed the statewide manual recount of the votes that the Florida Supreme Court had ordered to go forward.
    USA Today good enough too?

    Newspapers' recount shows Bush prevailed

    George W. Bush would have won a hand count of Florida's disputed ballots if the standard advocated by Al Gore had been used, the first full study of the ballots reveals. Bush would have won by 1,665 votes more than triple his official 537-vote margin
    Now, please tell all your friends who think Bush stole the election in 2000.

    That's been done, here, several times.

    On the second matter, you are correct.
    Then your point is moot.

    Thanks to the corrupt SCT decision...
    Excpalin to the class how the 7-2 decision regarding Equal Protection was 'corrupt'.
