Republican quotes from the ohio challenge?
could anyone give me some good, ridiculous quotes from the challenge?
I remember one about someone saying that we were helping the terrorists. I would appreciate quotes and the speakers of them. Thanks!

7. Three click-throughs from that Congressional Record search page
gets you to a list of speakers. One more click and you're into a transcript for the speaker you want.

Go to http://thomas.loc.gov/home/r109query.html

Click "View links to daily" -- January 6 House -- "Counting Electoral Ballots Joint Session"

4. the congressional record
scroll down past the evidence (which was incorporated into the record) ... about 1/2 down at link ... hunt for republican speakers


i.e,

~snip~

Mr. KELLER. "Mr. Speaker, I thank the gentleman for yielding me this
time. Mr. Speaker, there is a wise saying we have used in Florida over the past 4 years that the other side would be wise to learn: ``Get over it.''

"Is it not ironic that the very people who refuse to move on are the
people from Moveon.org and their hero Michael Moore?

"here's a wise saying we've used quite a bit in Florida over the past
4 years that the other side would do well to learn--Get over it. Isn't it ironic that the only people who refuse to ``move on'', are the people from ``move on.org'', and their hero Michael Moore?

"My colleagues across the aisle have two sides to choose from, the
John Kerry side that acknowledges the election is over and President
Bush has won. Or the Michael Moore side that defines ``democracy'' as
Democrats going to the polls, and ``conspiracy'' as Republicans going
to the polls."

~snip~

Mr. SHUSTER. "Mr. Speaker, I've been rather mystified over the
reaction to the recent election by many Democrats. Since the November
election, when a political opportunity arises, some on the other side of the aisle shout out words like ``fraud'' and ``sham.'' If they aren't doing that they demean what the people in the red states did on Election Day and call them insulting names.

"If this all seems to be the reaction of a shell-shocked party who has lost any vision and has moved to a vicious attack cycle--it is. The hard truth is that 58 million people voted for President Bush. And the even harder truth is that the majority of this country voted for President Bush, no matter how you try to confuse it. No proven
allegations of fraud. No reports of widespread wrongdoing. It was, at
the end of the day, an honest election."

I found this by first going to
http://www.gpoaccess.gov/crecord /

on that page, look for:

1994 (Volume 140) through 2005 (Volume 151)
Browse the Congressional Record by Day of Session 2005
Search
Simple (1994 forward)

and, click "Simple"

on the next page, I entered search words "opening statements"

on the next page:

5. Deborah Pryce's Entire Speech:
She is my Representative from Ohio, and it was probably the nastiest.
Third paragraph is outrageous!


Mr. Speaker, on one recent, crisp autumn morning in Boston, one tired-looking Presidential hopeful took the stage in front of a large crowd of loyal, yet disappointed, faces to say the following words: ``It is now clear that even when all the provisional ballots are counted, which they will be, and which they were, there won't be enough outstanding votes for us to be able to win Ohio. And, therefore, we cannot win this election.'' And so John Kerry conceded the Presidency to George W. Bush with grace and dignity.
Apparently such admirable qualities do not apply to certain extreme elements of Senator Kerry's own party. For if they did, surely this House would not be standing here today bogged down in this frivolous debate.
Mr. Speaker, on the other side of the aisle, a handful of Members will step forward and claim that they are here to contest an election of this Nation. They will claim that there was fraud and that the result was invalid. Americans, do not be deceived. Their intentions in this whole process are merely to sow doubts and undermine public confidence in the electoral system itself. Their challenges to the legitimacy of this election are no more than another exercise in their party's primary strategy, to obstruct, to divide, and to destroy. In other words, their objection is a front for their lack of ideas. With absolutely no credible agenda for America, these Democrats have opted to try and change the past rather than work for a better future
Mr. Speaker, we just welcomed a new year and began a new Congress. Republicans are ready and eager to ask the questions and prompt the debate that will produce results for America. We want to talk about ways to reduce health care costs for families and debate ways to create more jobs for Americans. We are ready to discuss how to strengthen our schools to better educate our children.
But apparently some Democrats only want to gripe about counts, recounts, and recounts of recounts. So eager are they to abandon their job as public servants, they have cast themselves in the role of Michael Moore, concocting wild conspiracy theories to distract the American public. Such aspiring fantasy authors should note the facts before they let the ink dry on this tall tale.
For example, the request for an Ohio recount has already been fulfilled, and it verified what we already knew, what Senator John Kerry knew the first day, that President Bush won Ohio by nearly 120,000 votes, an overwhelming and comfortable margin. Indeed, George W. Bush is the first Presidential candidate to win the majority of the popular vote since 1988. And, Mr. Speaker, every single major editorial board of every newspaper in Ohio has called this effort a sham.
Eighty-eight separate bipartisan election boards from every county in Ohio, even Cuyahoga, have verified and vouched for the integrity of the results. Are we to believe that the hundreds of Democrats who sit on these boards were actively working against their own party and their own Presidential candidate? No local, county, or State election officials in Ohio are contesting this election. Not one. The overwhelming majority of Ohioans are not contesting this election, so why should politicians in Washington?
Mr. Speaker, it is a shame that these Democrats have resorted to such baseless and meritless tactics to begin the 109th Congress. And it is a shame that they have placed their partisan war, disclaimed by their own candidate above what is best for the country and to use the great State of Ohio as their vehicle.
Mr. Speaker, I yield the balance of my time to my friend and colleague from the great State of Ohio (Mr. Hobson).
