Looks like Birtherism is out, and accusations of electronic voting machine fraud are in

I've been looking at the right side of the internet and the wing nuts are pretty adamant. Barack Obama is an illegitimate president due to electronic voting machine fraud.

George Soros is alleged to have funded a massive undertaking in the swing states to insure Obama's victory.

At the end of the day, this is absolutely NO DIFFERENT from their Birfoon accusations of him having been born in Kenya, then doubling down on being Birfoons by claiming that to be a natural born citizen one must be born to two citizen parents.

It's all about an attempt to delegitimize a sitting president and comfort themselves for siding with a loser.

1. These types of ideas are what brought the GOP to their knees and if they keep it up

they will eventually be irrelevant and disappear. Loons and idiots with be with us always.

2. Somebody needs to point out

that Obama would have had to fix a minimum of four states to win. Bush only had to fix one twice.

But if they don't trust electronic voting machines - fine. I don't trust them either. Lets go back to paper ballots and drop the voting machines into the bottom of the ocean.

3. But even paper ballots won't ensure honesty...

remember the "hanging chads" in Florida? I'm guessing paper ballots and pens. Whatever, something needs to be done. If we can put a man on the moon, yada yada yada.

6. Morons.

I've seen these comments, too. They point out that Romney got fewer votes than McCain and that's just not possible. No evidence of any sort, mind you. They just don't believe Romney could've done so poorly, so Obama must've cheated.

But hey, if it can help motivate people on both sides of the aisle to push for election reform, bring it on.

7. Well Romney, what do you think?

Aren't you one of those who said there was nothing to worry about from E-vote technology that used machines owned and operated by republicans?

So, my questions are: On those RW boards, are you now arguing that there is no problem with the E-vote? Are you edumacating them about what you learned here; that the republicans, at least up to election day, controlled the count?

8. Good. When righties and lefties are both suspicious of inscrutable electronic voting machines...


...then maybe something will finally be done to replace them with voting systems that are open and transparent - thus removing the reasons for suspicion.

13. Good. Maybe if there is talk of voting machine fraud on both sides...

it will lead to support for national standards ensuring a paper trail.

16. Lies!

The republicans are just looking for ways to badmouth and smash Obama's campaign. If voting machines actually did that, there would be investigation after investigation. Republicans just need to accept the fact that they lost.
