Jeb Fights Back (Take that, Jimmy)
Drudge Report ^

Posted on 09/27/2004 7:01:38 PM PDT by Capt. Jake

JEB FIGHTS BACK Mon Sep 27 2004 20:33:05 ET

Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's office yesterday said charges by former President Jimmy Carter that the state is "likely" to have a repetition of the voting problems that plagued the 2000 election are politically motivated by Democrats intent on undermining voter confidence in the state.

The WASHINGTON TIMES's Joe Curl will report on Tuesday: State officials also said the former president made no attempt to get up-to-date information before writing an opinion piece and never tried to contact the governor's office or that of Secretary of State Glenda Hood.

"This is a shockingly partisan opinion piece and it's unfortunate that a person such as the former president is being used by the Democratic Party for low-level political rhetoric," said Jacob DiPietre, press secretary for Gov. Jeb Bush.

Someone needs to tell Carter to keep his anti-Americanism to himself.

Jimmy Carter is an idiot and an evil doer who is trying to undermine confidence of the people in democracy and to bring disrepute upon the government.

Someone needs to tell Jimmah Carter to shove a peanut up his nose and blow it out his ear!

John Edward Bush has more class in his little finger than Jimmah has in his whole repugnant body.

There have been election irregularities in Florida already: Dems trying to keep Ralph Nader off the ballot. Is this what Billy's brother is talking about? If so, more power to the peanut farmer!

Jimmy Carter has not learned from his mistakes. Does he understand why he was swept out of the WH after one term? People couldn't wait to get him out.

The Carter administration seemed like a long nightmare--and was!

Fifteen years ago a good friend told me he had figured liberals out. He used to think they were well-meaning, but misguided. Experience had convinced him, however, that there was nothing well-meaning about them. It took me awhile, but I've come to understand why he said that.

That would be impossible. Remember, he is a DemoRat. Anti-americanism is in their DNA. He cannot help himself.

I will never forget that he spent 444 days begging and kissing the feet of terrorist and never got the hostages back. Ronald Reagan called the terrorists in Teheran "International Outlaws and vowed to use all means necessary to get our envoys freed." They were freed 20 minutes after his inauguration. I guess they did not want to test the resolve of the "Cowboy."

This was in response to the "caption this" thread on Carter earlier today, Jimmy was whinging about likely voter fraud in FL. Carter's a geezer, in other words.

No offense at all to the "Terri Schaivo" situation, which is indeed very sad.

jimmah is a doddering old man; he sanctioned the Venezuelan election, where there were more votes for the party in power than was actually possible. FLORIDA, on the other hand, is beyond hope? this man was a disaster as president; I'm not sure why he won't shut up and let us all forget him.

"Someone needs to tell Carter to keep his anti-Americanism to himself"

I'd recommend a brief conversation with Da Man, VP Cheney.
He gives excellent advice to backstabbers like Carter.

State officials also said the former president made no attempt to get up-to-date information before writing an opinion piece and never tried to contact the governor's office or that of Secretary of State Glenda Hood.

That's the talking point they need to hit. If the Dems are going to make a charge, they have to PROVE the charge. Same thing with crying Republicans are racists. If Republicans are stopping blacks from voting, PROVE it. Otherwise my retort is that you are the lowest form of humanity on this Earth for accusing innocents of these vile charges. The reality is that it is Dems trying to keep Nader off the ballot. Democrat precincts were the ones that supposedly had voters turned away. It was a Democrat state supreme court that attempted to break law to rule only a few precincts be counted once more. It was Democrats that tried to toss military ballots in the trash. It was Democrats that locked the doors to attempt to keep observers out while they manipulated ballots. It is even Dems that are overwhelmingly registered TWICE in both NY and Florida! Sure, there are troubles in Florida. Evidence points entirely to Dems as the problem.
