  •  That's a crock -- all of it (7+ / 0-)
    There was a procedure and it was underway: recount the votes. The Republicans were trying every move in the book -- including rioting by organized outside agitators -- to shut it down. If the recount had continued, Gore would be president.

    Of course, it "occurred" to everyone with a trace of memory that "crooks" could be elected to office. Name 'Nixon" ring any bells?

    And yes, Bush and Cheney are different in terms of both the "what" and the "how much." People who dismiss the actions of elected officials with that "they're all the same" line are among the ones I consider most responsible for the pickle we're in. Considering that no one -- absolutely no one -- is perfect, this is the perfect way to cynically damn everyone and walk away from responsibility to try to do anything. I've been particularly sensitive to this cheap lie since the 2000 election when I got so sick of hearing that there was no difference between Bush and Gore and it was a choice between the classic "lesser of two evils." This is why I adamantly refuse to jump on the idiotic "draft Gore" bandwagon. If he was "evil" then, I guess he's still "evil" now, eh? Of course, I was one who didn't beieve he was "evil" then.

    It's human nature for people to want to enrich themselves. I don't believe it's necessarily human nature to want to strip everyone else and the entire country of all its resources, and I do NOT believe this is what most Democrats want. If you do, I wonder why you are here, since the goal of this site is to elect Democrats.

    I'm surprised that you think anyone here whole-heartedly supports turning over oil rights to private companies. That may be part of the administration's goal but it's certainly not what our young men and WOMEN are dying over there for.

    We're retiring Steve LaTourette (R-Family Values for You But Not for Me) and sending Judge Bill O'Neill to Congress from Ohio-14:
