"Was the 2004 Election Stolen?"

Got this link from huffpost (it's not a new story...but maybe it'll get more play by being in RS):

Was the 2004 Election Stolen?
Republicans prevented more than 350,000 voters in Ohio from casting ballots or having their votes counted -- enough to have put John Kerry in the White House. BY ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR.

Yes, but it's old news. Let's move on...

May 22, 2006 · Marc Rosenbaum, a senior editor at NPR and one of the guys who pays lots of attention to polls, just got back into town from a conference on polling and sent this in:

One last thing: There also was a session called, "Who Really Won the Election 2004?" This was an opportunity for the cyber-active bloggers who think the Ohio vote was somehow fraudulent to present their best case. They didn't. Their presentations were confusing, if not incoherent to this listener, and they all seemed to boil down to one complaint: namely, that the vote totals didn't match the exit polls. The problem with that argument is that if you can give good reasons why the exit polls were wrong in Ohio (and there are many), their entire complaint disappears.

I have to say, though, that I did see the respondent in that panel, who gave a thoughtful and coherent critique of the vote-fraud proponents, chatting for hours one evening with one of the presenters. It's the good thing about a conference like this, even when it rains.

It was stolen by the same people who orchestrated 9/11 and faked the whole moon landing.

You mean the government?



It's an argument that can go on forever, but honestly it doesn't matter.

The truth is, and I'm being completely honest here, he isn't worthy of running a Subway shop, he has THE pourest record of any president...

He's a man of great strings...and I think the Republican voters are coming around to realize this...he catered and that's the only reason he got "voted" in...

like an "old crime"....too "old" to solve?

i think not.

Sorry, if the shoe had been on the other foot we NEVER would have heard the end of it from the Neo-cons & Christian Super-fundalmentalists.

WE would NOT be IN some of the Hells we are in today, IF this truth had hit hard back then and something had been done.

Yes, but what can we do? Let's focus on the next election. We need to form a unified front and move this country on...

Revenge for 1960.

Isn't Ohio the state where illegal alien Nuradin Abdi was registered to vote? Yeah, he's the suspected shopping mall bomb plotter from Somalia

And wasn't convicted al Qaeda agent Iyman Faris also a registered voter in Ohio? He was the guy who planned to sabotage the Brooklyn Bridge and had entered the country fraudulently from Pakistan on a student visa.

I wonder who those guys voted for.

It's amazing to me that no one ever asks for my ID whenever I vote in person.

Someone should make a documentary showing how to vote 25 times in the same election. The Ohioans have vote fraud down to a science, even their own newspapers and lawyers couldn't do anything about it, very impressive.

It would be interesting to see, wouldn't it?

For many terrorists were supporting Bush knowing that his foreign policy would gain more recruits...

We had at least 2 threads in here discussing the "press releases" from terrorists organizations supporting Bush.

It only makes sense.

Why would terrorist organizations issue press releases supporting Bush, knowing that anyone who reads it would be unlikely to follow its advice?

That makes no sense.

Obviously, these groups wanted everyone to vote for Kerry.

Why would they want that?

What?

Come on, painting an American president as a religious zealot who's invading Iraq on purely vengeful reasons fuels a terrorist community.

Where are you losing the logic?
