    *facepalm*

    The things people come up with, without any proof...

    Oh wait. This *is* the religious party after all. Makes total sense when you think about it.

    What percent of Democrats think that Bush stole the 2000 election?

    A damn lot of them....

    But more democrats will say that Bush was handed the Presidency by the Supreme Ct.... and I'd be one of them.

    The Majority of Republicans will soon, if not already, fit within the confines of a few counties in Texas where I suggest they be kept, until we can negotiate a transfer deal with Somalia.

    I hardly suggest this as punishment. Somalia represents the Republican ideal of small, make that nonexistent government. And it's a land where gun ownership is highly recommended.

    not that you're arguing, but ...

    the majority of those with common sense don't think Bush won his elections - twice. however, he served his terms.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>fBush didn't steel anything, unless you count the fact that his cronies worked it out through the Supreme Court to interfere in the recount after a fake demonstration by bushies down in Florida, which was then used as an excuse to say that 'throngs' of people were revolting against a recount, that it could lead to chaos. I see a very very clear difference.

    People are always suspicious when their party of choice doesn't win. If McCain won, you don't think a majority of Democrats would have suspected fraud?

    The majority of Republicans also believe the Earth is 5000 years old. These are some very seriously delusional people.

    And if the Supreme Court would have handed Gore the election, the Republicans would still be griping about that. Maybe everybody just needs to move on and get over it...sheesh!

    And the poll that says majority of Republicans don't think Obama won the election is beyond absurd.

    The source would probably be the Huffington Post, same as for the bizarre story above.

    As for the 2000 election, there has yet to be a recount where Gore won. Tick, tock. Tick, tock.

    You might want to recheck that polling data.

    And watch for those 2010 congressional elections. icon_eek.gif

    Gore won the popular vote for the 2000 election.

    Here are some for starters. Is you memory about the last several elections really so short, when all this was brought up?

    B71115,

    Don't worry. We'll also send over a small herd of moose to keep your Leaderette entertained. And maybe she'll keep having babies til you can get your numbers up again.

    But seriously, here's the problem for Republicans: Rejecting Science and any intellectual inquiry that might blur your dogma is no way to approach living in the future. We have problems/challenges that the current majority of Americans and world citizens want to solve by using our intellects and working together.

    What you might consider the best traits of Republican Conservatism, such as individual freedoms and fiscal prudence, has now been more inclusively adopted into the Progressive movement. We want a continuously improving world AND we realize that progress can only be made once we can afford it.

    And we also understand that without SECURITY from the nut cases, whether they be Al Qaeda or our own Baptist Taliban, we won't get far.

    So honestly, I just don't see a need for the current Faux News Party some still call Republican. Hate, sensationalism over rational discussion, and fear-mongering is not a way to win back the victims of your recent terms in office.

    Accept Somalia. Take Sunscreen.

    [quote]Gore won the popular vote for the 2000 election.[/quote]

    The popular vote doesn't mean a thing, though. It is the Electoral College that decides the Presidency.

    Win the 11 biggest states, plus one more electoral vote, and you are the President of the United States.

    They said the same about Bush. I'm firmly convinced that our country has gone down the tubes and no matter who is president, people will find something to complain about. I can see another Civil war coming.because our country refuses to unite with one another, but instead we are at war with each other--this a tell tale sign that we are in for some really rough days ahead.

    I'm so sick of both parties and their bitching that we should oust them ALL and get a New party in government.
