Jimmy Carter: Gore Beat Bush in 2000
World Net Daily ^ | 09-21-05 | Joe Kovacs

Posted on 09/23/2005 4:42:47 AM PDT by Klickitat

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 23
2005

Five years after the controversial 2000 presidential election, ex-President Jimmy Carter now says he's certain Al Gore defeated George W. Bush.

"Well I would say that in the year 2000, the country failed abysmally in the presidential election process," Carter told a panel Monday at American University in Washington, D.C. "There's no doubt in my mind that Al Gore was elected president."

Those in attendance broke out in applause for that statement.

"[Gore] received the most votes nationwide, and in my opinion, he also received the most votes in Florida," Carter continued. "And the decision was made as you know on a 5-4 vote on a highly partisan basis by the U.S. Supreme Court, so I would say in 2000, there was a failure."

The year 2000 saw the closest presidential election in American history, as Bush won the electoral vote 271-266, despite losing the popular vote to Gore by a half-million votes.

Carter's analysis went on to include last year's matchup between Bush and Democrat Sen. John Kerry, as the election came down to a battle over the electoral votes in Ohio.

"The year 2004 is hard to grade," said Carter. "I don't have any detailed information about what actually went on in Ohio. If Ohio had gone one way or the other, it would have changed the outcome of the election. And the only thing that I know about Ohio, was that there's general consensus that the secretary of state of Ohio, who is responsible for the administration of the election, was highly partisan in his public approach and perhaps even in his private adminstration. But I don't know about that."

Carter's remarks are sparking discussion on messageboards across the Internet, with comments including:

You should seek immediate treatment for your delusions Mr. President.

Dear Jimmy,

Please put this presidential declaration in writing, in order to assist George W. Bush in his presidential run of 2008. (Since he wasn't elected in 2000, he's still got one in his back pocket. Care to discuss 2004's election results?)

It had me laughing too. Especially this:

"Carter for president. Just what America needs right now to restore some semblance of dignity to the presidency. I believe if he ran he would actually win. There is a tremendous undercurrent of sentiment for change in America and the populace will speak loud and clearly in '08 if given a choice such as Carter."

I mean come on! Ok which freeper is gonna admit trolling this lefty site and posting that comment?

This from:

Mr. 21% Prime Rate
Mr. Gas Lines
as nauseum.

Failed former presidents should shut up and resign themselves to the dustbin of history.

BTW, have you ever seen a rpublican pull the scummy post-administration crap both of the last 2 failed demoncrat presidents continually do? I think there is definitely a difference in class there.

Is that the Honorable Jimmy "Hat" Carter or Honorable Yassar "HIV" Arafat?

Given the elections that Carter is in the habit of certifying this is pretty consistent.

Can someone summarize the decisions by the FSC vs. the USSC? If I remember correctly the USSC didn't vote GWB president, but sent the case back to the FSC with the idea that, and I paraphrase, "Your out of line"

Any good books been written the cover the election?

Let's see, Carter is "certain" that Gore defeated Bush in 2000, but "doesn't have enough information" to say what happened in 2004.

Increasingly, Democrats only approve elections in which they win. This is because they realize they are in the minority. This is also why they don't care about democracy in other countries.

They are very selfish people.

The electoral vote in favor of Reagan over carter was
489-49. I guess Mr. peanut thinks he won that one, too.

I saw this yesterday.I sent the following e-mail to the Carder Center" (www.cartercenter.org) which came back as "rejected".

Mr Carter,

Please,please,*please* tell me that you didn't say in a recent speech that you're absolutely convinced that Mr Gore won the 2000 Election.

Allow me to set you straight on a very important point: the only noteworthy difference between your candidacy in 1980 and Mr Gore's in 2000 is that *you* carried your home state and Mr Gore *failed* to carry his.

It was the people who knew him best,the people of the Volunteer State, who denied him his chance to command White Trash One and nobody else.

Thank you for your time,Mr Carter and you keep up the good work certifying as "free and fair" elections that are "won" by Marxist psychopaths like Chavez and Mugabe.

Oh, PLEEEEEEEEASE, let him run! What a gift to Republicans!

Besides, I'd just like to relive old memories and give him one last a**-woopin'...

"Well I would say that in the year 2000, the country failed abysmally in the presidential election process,"

When Teddy Roosevelt discussed the virtues of the man in the arena, Carter thought that included the waterboy and for a briefly insane moment, our country lost its mind for four years. Those days are over. Problem is, old Democratic presidents never die, they just linger like boils on the a$$.

It only took Jimmuh five years to arrive at an incorrect conclusion.

That one reason why he only served four years and lost in a landslide.

That hypocrite! Bush's margin was TEN TIMES that of Jimmy Carter's in the 1976 race (11,000). Click here for 1976 Ohio results A move of only 19,000 votes between Ohio and Hawaii (who had a partisan secretary of state) would have given Ford the election.

Has there ever in the USA history been a worse President than Jimmy Carter? In my mind the mess we are in currently in the Middle East was because of his wimpy response to the hostage taking in Iran during his term.

"[Gore] received the most votes nationwide, ..."

Jimmy, Jimmy, Jimmy, that's the reason you failed as President. The Constitution provides for the election of the President by Electoral College. You don't understand, apparently, what the Electoral College is. Jimmy, why don't you go out and paint a house and leave the business of running the world to those who know how to do it. Remember Iran, Jimmy? Remember the hostages, Jimmy? Remember the long gas station lines on your watch, Jimmy? Remember 16% interest rates and 18% inflation rates on your watch, Jimmy?

Jimmy, why don't you get a hammer and go drive nails in a porch somewhere. Your legacy as President wasn't much better than Clinton's.
