I have a question related to number 5.

Last year it was Bush's fault that we were having so many hurricanes. His aggregious policies against the environment were causing global warming and we were getting what we paid for because we voted for him.

This year is radically different. There really haven't been any hurricanes (season isn't over I guess). But how did Bush manage to change policy so drastically and fix the environment in one short season without anybody really noticing?

The same way Bush was able to fix ALL the voting irregularities, minority issues, and voting machine problems. No reports in the 2006 elections, has nothing to do with the DEm victory

Even that's not true. A number of districts are planning on throwing out their new equipment.

The notion that there's no whining because the dems won is pretty silly.

Completely...

I wasn't a close race. If it was close and the GOP could have maintained control they would have sued retired poll workers to get the job done.

Yep, if the Dems lost you know damn well Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would be all over the place bitching an whining, but with the Dem victory they are amazingly silent. Isnt it amazing that when the Dems win, the elections are totally perfect?! No blacks and minorities being disinfranchised. Its truly amazing!

People are disenfranchised every election, you just don't know about it.

If there's a close race, then people look at the issues more closely and it's gets national press.

But considering this was a blowout, there isn't the national focus. It doesn't mean that local districts aren't working on local issues.

Blowout? There were 3 or 4 Senate races alone that were razor thin. But the Dems won, so they looked the other way and didnt play the disinfranchised card.

If they truly cared about people not being disinfranchised, they would go after anyone who believed had a case. But they dont, they only make a big stink when they get thier asses kicked. If they win, they turn the other cheek and look away.

hypocrytes? I think so.

You guys just can't deal with the fact that the Dems fronted candidates the people liked better than the rubber stampers.

We lost. Its over. We've moved on. Turn the tables on the winning partys and we'd still be having recount after recount. And Al Sharpton and Jessee Jackson would be doing thier usual thing. But you guys win, and the elections are perfect!

But you guys just dont see what a bunch of hypocrytes you are!

Its so freakin funny!!

Fix the environment??????? He was the figurehead for the change all the progressive laws about protecting the environment.... and he lead the charge to mining, gas & oil exploration, and lumbering vast areas of once protected lands..... good god...his group was raping and pillaging the weary planet.
