Skip to comments.MICHAEL MOORE: 'BUSH GOT MORE VOTES'
Posted on 11/30/2004 7:29:33 AM PST by areafiftyone
Democrat conspiracy mongers currently pushing for a recount in Ohio in hopes of overturning the presidential election got no help last night from conspiracy monger-in-chief, Michael Moore, who told "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno that President Bush won the contest fair and square.
Asked why Democratic hopes went up in smoke on Election Day, Moore said simply, "I think Bush got more votes."
"The Republicans - I'll give them this - they had a story to tell," the Bush-bashing filmmaker conceded. "The Democrats, often times, aren't very good at telling a story."
"And the [Bush] story was: Out of the ashes of Sept. 11 rose one man. And he stood on the rubble of lower Manhattan with a bullhorn and he said, 'I will protect you.'
"And he did," Moore added, as the audience began to applaud. "And we were never attacked again."
Dressed in a business suit and clean-shaven for the first time in years, Moore couldn't resist inserting the caveat: "That has nothing to do with whether we will be attacked again."
Still, his advice to disgruntled Dems had nothing to do with recounts or stolen elections or voter disenfranchisement.
"[Bush's victory] was just a couple of percentage points," the chastened-sounding movieman said. "People who voted for Kerry shouldn't be depressed at this point. They should pick themselves up . . . There's another game in four years. And we'll come back and do the best we can."
Nah, it was the choice of story. Kerry was telling "Apocalypse Now" in a post 9/11 world.
OK, this is as close to actual character I have ever seen come from this guy. This is as close to feeling respect for this guy that I will probably ever come.
My liberal relatives who saw the movie said it was pretty hard to swallow if you have a functioning brain. They said that Bush was portrayed as both an evil super genius and a moron.
Wow, he'll really get the girls now.
This must be latest "schtick". The overaged slobby slacker thing didn't work, so now he's going to try and be a Republican. The guy has absolutely no soul and is willing to sell out to whatever fame pimp he can find. What a phony. Although, I'm glad he's not running around claiming voter fraud. Even he is not that stupid(unlike the DU's).
LOl. It was definitely interesting. I never watch Leno but just had to last night. MM seemed very humbled. It was very weird.
Come one, come all, watch the Democrats try to move to the middle!
It's funny that Michael Moore is the most down to earth democrat following the election.It shows what a disaster the democratic party has become.
Sure, he is married! But, nothing cleans a male slob up better that a shot at some good looking new stuff. Remember where you heard this! Of course, this attributes some normal behavior to what has always been a steaming pile of animal waste, so I could be wrong.
And take a deep breath.
Maybe his body is inhabited by aliens? A heck of a lot of them can fit in there.
Do you think he has been lurking here and, stung by the criticism, decided to smarten himself up? ;)
Michael Moore is a P****.
I heard he will be trying for a press spokesman job at the White House
Hillary, got your ears on? Come back at me, 10-4.
Yes, they tend to turn on and cannibalize their own. And he as given them lots of food for 'thought'. I didn't watch the whole thing, but was curious, knowing how the dummies have turned on him, to see if he was trying to reinvent himself and, sure enough, there he was cleaned up in a suit giving Bush his version of props with a twist. Curious. He must be a little rattled to find they turned on him, rather than to him, in their loss.
Pest? Pervert? Pernicious? Pig-like? Prostate? Pumper?
Oh, the Dims are very good at telling "stories."
Just ask Dan Blather!
