I was flipping through the coverage of the jack@ss convention and came across Ronnie Reagan telling Chris Mathews that President Bush and the SCOTUS stole the election from Al Gore. The former ballerina, claimed that every single vote recount in Florida by the media resulted in Gore winning the popular vote in Florida and therfore the National Electorial College majority in 2000.
The media won't confront such a lie ... it would be inconvenient for them to do that.
did anyone correct him (why am I asking this, its MSNBC)?
Did Matthews correct him, or was he complicit in the lie?
and I bet ole Chrissy didn't tell him that he was wrong either.
Just to set the record straight (unlike Ron) didn't President Bush win every recount?
The truth is Matthews DID challenge him seriously on this.
You know, refering to this abomination as a "former ballerina" really doesn't acknowledge his outstanding work as a dog show commentator.
Chris asked Ronnie for more details, but he did not correct Ronnie.
What is a "media" recount?
May Ronnie Jr. forget where his butt ends and his mouth starts!
Did twinkle toes say this while in fairyland?
All the newspapers, TV, etc. got together, pooled assets and the pool decided that GOre LOST by, what was it, 523 votes!?!?!
Did he? I would think he would.
As much as a blowhard Matthews is for the left, he'll let spin go, but he will challenge outright lies.
Now that his father is dead, I expect little Ronnie to crawl out of the closet he was never really in.
That's a blazing lie!
Just like a 'rat to ignore the facts. Throw enough lies at the wall and some are bound to stick. Must be the talking points. Drama queen Algore spent a quarter of his speech commiserating about election 2000, then said he's not there to talk about the past. Two minutes later he's exhorting everyone to not go back to 2000 and let the Supreme Court select the President, and don't let Bush select the Supreme Court.
Ron...Al...We still have a Constitution. It covers elections. Read it. Move on.
The media is having fun interviewing delegates who repeat over and over their anger at the "stolen election." They were too stupid to cheat by a sufficient margin. I'm sure they'll try harder this time.
The truth is exactly opposite,
& Matthews knows it. Only G_d
knows what Baby Ronnie knows...
