    That was 15 years ago. A lot of the people who voted for him are dead and buried.

    Don't blame the Democrats, don't even blame the electorate. Blame the incompetent boobs in the RNC.
    No the electorate DOES deserve allot of the blame.

    These were some of the same people that believed Bush " lied " and who equated bumper sticker slogans and empty platitudes to Presidential qualifications.

    It is a key, central and important factor in the election of the President. And to many Americans it means a great deal. To many Americans, they view Gore as the legitimate winner and Bush as the illegitimate interloper who became President and presided over 911.

    Oh... Republicans have tons of blame to shoulder.

    Need to get I's and D's out of voting in our primaries for starters, and we need to nominate folks... Conservatives... who will fight. Obama was the lamest of candidates. Republicans simply didn't rip him apart and force the press to follow their lead.

    I mean really... how do you lose to an anti-American who was mentored by Marxists, racists and associated with known terrorists?

    That's easy, be a party that turns off everyone except for 45+ year old white males.

    Yet somehow that party controls the House, the Senate, the majority of governorships and state legislatures. So much for your theory...

    It's funny to hear people complain about the status quo and then support the electoral college, a measure put in place to protect that status quo.

    I blame the electorate. I blame the electorate for being swayed by stupid slogans and listening to lies and succumbing to base ideas like punishing the poor or waging war on drugs. I blame the electorate for being so unrealistic as to buy the lie when a have tells them that they're all "soon to haves". I blame the electorate for being racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, and just generally selfish and petty. Our leaders reflect and reinforce our society, and our society needs a lot of work.

    I blame the electorate for being ignorant enough to say things like this, for example.

    I think all the voter suppression of black Floridians makes it even more that way. Without criminal interference by Bush's brother, he would have lost. And then without daddy's friends on the bench deciding to just give him the election, he would also have lost.

    If any other demographic voted as consistently as old white people, especially old white men, it would be a landslide victory for Democrats. It's insane how simple is to wrest power from these lunatics, but it doesn't happen.

    But Millions DID equate empty platitudes and bumper sticker slogans to Presidential qualifications....TWICE.

    And it shows. Some of these people are running around with their hands in the air screaming " hands up dont shoot " even AFTER the DOJ cleared Officer Wilson.

    America has been set upon by idiots and the Democrats know this. They cater to them. They feed them bs narratives about " Wars on women "and " inequality and expect a vote in return
