    Cutting the President Slack Is So Old School

    The concept of a loyal opposition — that the party out of power can oppose the government without trying to overthrow it — is, of course, as old as the United States itself. “We are all Republicans — we are all Federalists,” Thomas Jefferson declared in at his first inaugural, heralding the birth of the American multiparty system
    Democrats have always supported the winner of the presidential election, even when that election was stolen. But Republicans have decided to obstruct and bring down the president simply because he is not a Republican.

    I was waiting for a punch line.
    B'da Bing!

    Where'd it go?

    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.

    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?

    USATODAY.com - Newspapers' recount shows Bush prevailed


    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.

    "Stolen" elections are a matter of opinion and not fact. You can have this opinion all you want, even though it's unsubstantiated.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    The victor was substantiated; it was not Algore.

    Zimmer, are you quoting me thinking I thought it was stolen?

    Yeah, anyone that says that the left was supportive of Bush after the 2000 election is either 4 years old, or lying.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Unification. You mean support for the President? Did I get the wrong chart? Or does my chart say 'Percentage of Americans Unified'?

    Also this is approval rating. Not how the libs supported him graph. Sorry.
    - With a 90% approval rating. I'm pretty sure it's safe to say the majority of liberals supported him. Or are you waiting for that magical 100% nobody ever got?
