Wherever a Bush is involved, so is corruption

If Gore were running against anyone else, we would know who our next president is.

But the Bush family is involved, so like the state of Texas, this entire election is now fouled with the stench of their corruption.

ROTFLMAO! Gore for the past eight years was involved with the most corrupt government in our history (still is). Let's begin with the Buddhist Temple................

I believe U.S. Grant's administration is agreed by most historians to have been the most corrupt.

At least this is what the voice in my head told me earlier this morning. Thought I'd share.

What the hell are you talking about? If CNN hadn't called florida before the polls were closed the republican vote would have been stronger and there wouldn't be a recount, and Bush would have won easy. Please don't even start saying Bush is corrupt he won't threaten a lawsuit if he loses.

NBC called the election for Gore after the Gore votes had come in from the large populations in the eastern cities. The Bush supporters in the western half of the state were still voting for another hour, so the Repug camp insisted that the media say it was "too close to call", even though Gore had an overwhelming win. It was after the media said it was close that the Repugs who weren't planning on voting rushed to the polls and tried to defeat Gore.

Bullshit The networks call florida for gor with only 24% of the vote in.

Bushman, your wrong...we're in California, they (Tom Brokaw) called Gore the winner at 6:00 p.m. with ONLY 5% of the vote in in Florida!!! I'm hearing complaints that people in CA, Oreogn, Hawaii, and Washington who stayed at home when they heard Gore won Florida! I say the Republicans should sue!

Disclaimer: We can't believe anything we hear and only half of what we see.

That's even worse CNN had 24%. But no matter what it shouldn't have been called with out at least 95% in as close as it was

>he won't threaten a lawsuit if he loses.

But it's already been reported that the Bush people were poised to go to court to demand recounts in Wisconsin, Iowa, and a couple of other states where Gore had narrow winning margins, in case they lose in Florida.

Not a matter of corruption. Just being practical.

Then they're idiots. Most of the states hadn't even been called by then, most notably Michigan and Pennsylvania. Nobody forced them to watch the news or base their decision to vote on it. Didn't those states have any local elections or referendums going on? There was still plenty of reason to vote, regardless of what the TV people say. Anyone who bases their decision to vote on televised projections deserves what they get.

Perhaps Congress should consider a mandated blackout on results reporting until all polls have closed. Although, I admit, watching CBSNBCFOXCNN step on their own genitals trying to be The First was more entertaining than reruns of "My Mother, The Car."
