Geez.

Not one Republican is DENYING that the irregularities and problems exist!!!

Instead they're :cry: about how inconvenient this is.

Apparently, they HATE the wheels of DEMOCRACY!!!

They are ANTI-DEMOCRACY and DON'T WANT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO ENJOY THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT AND POWER TO VOTE!!!

is a useless piece of garbage. I ran a voter registration drive and in some ways it makes it more difficult to register to vote. It certainly didn't solve the problem of election fraud.

Instead he just gave the Right more ammo to attack those who are standing up for voting rights. Republicans keep on bringing him up as having "moved on" and it's going to end up hurting the Left's cause in the long run.

28. It's another instance of his wanting to have things both ways.
The Bushists called this tendency of his "flip-flopping" because they're too stupid and lazy to say what it really is, which is seeming to have no position on anything at all. What Kerry does is more passsive than flip-flopping. Vastly more subtle and sophisticated, too. But a lot of good it does him or, more to the point, Democrats and progressives.

It should never be held up as an example of reform. It did very little and hurt in some cases. It was no reform at all.

Notice how no one is questions the outcome, "Bu*h won"
Me thinks they protest too much. Could it be they themselves worry that questions will be raised as to the legitimacy of their placement as representatives making decisions for us.

Personally, I don't think Bu*h won, he didn't win Ohio. Blackwell's fraud turned the election to Bu*h.

But at least some Dem's stood this time.

78. Although people were denied the right to vote,...election legitimate.
How is any election legitimate if every American citizen isn't guaranteed that his/her right vote is counted?

Can any election be legitimate is "the people" are not empowered with their constitutional right to vote and have their vote counted?

76. Problem is that the Pubs keep treating this
like a football game. It's all about the score--* got more votes. I can't decide whether they are doing this on purpose to distract or they just don't get it.

81. Thanks Jesse Jackson Jr! Ex-felon voting is a serious issue
It is very clearly targeted at disenfranchising African-American voters who are far more likely to be arrested and convicted of a felony. There's a reason most of the states who don't allow ex-felons to vote are in the South. It is another form of Jim Crow.
