Skip to comments.Dem Plan to Re-Unify: Relive Florida Recounts?
Posted on 05/04/2008 8:23:56 AM PDT by LBSTx
Even as the MSM wing of the party warns fellow Democrats that the prolonged WWE-style grudge match between Barack Obama and the Clinton machine may tear the party apart...they may already have identified an issue they hope the party can coalesce around, like some sort of political superglue.
Lesley Stahls 60 Minutes profile of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia spent an inordinate amount of time mis-stating facts about an eight-year old legal issue: Of all the cases that have come before him on the court, Bush v. Gore may have been the most controversial. It has been reported that he played a pivotal role in urging the other justices to end the Florida recount, thereby handing the 2000 election to George Bush.

There is only one reason why the Bush bashing is all the rage: The 2000 elections. It’s all about 2000; always has been.
The Beast will rally if it advances her cause, and Obama will rally if it will advance his cause.....in other words...nice try 60 minutes but the dems are SOL!
“We almost stole it in 2000. We’ll get it right this time!”
Probably a fair assessment of their strategy for party “unity.” They have nothing else, but a philosophy that’s about 100 years out of date.
Maybe they just don't want to be part of the whole thing.
Except he’s NOT running...
That doesn’t seem to matter.
Welcome to FR!
The dims will NEVER get over 2000 or 2004.
They HATE “W” and everyone who voted for him.

yeah....but b. HUSSEIN and the lib/dems state they are uniters....not dividers!!!!
Spot on. I totally agree with you on that. It has always been about 2000
Yep, and it sounds just like the hate from BO's "spiritual adviser" for over 20 years. Just another member of the "hate America" leftist crowd. One of these days, that hate will consume their soul.
Can’t help but laugh that Lesley Stahl stated as fact that the Supreme Court handed the election to Bush, even though CBS’s own reporting stated that the recounts the court halted would have increased Bush’s margin of victory. As Scalia said in the 60 Minutes piece, “Get over it.”
And THAT is why ..........
The hate is old, the hate is deep, the hate is vile.
The hate and/or lies are never challenged or confronted, but are allowed to fester and turn into the eruptions we are seeing in this country everyday. The hate and the lies have become truth to many.
Wow, I didn't know FReepers were upset about the 2000 election.
Lesley Stahl rehashes 2000 election votes that were counted and recounted while Chairman Dean completely refuses all Democrat 2008 election primary votes. Dean will only seat the delegates when their votes won’t matter.
Maybe it's just me but it seems these days that before any controversial movie comes out, the news seems to stir up that very subject again. I don't think it's just coincidence.
We really don't move in those circles, do we? ;^)
But I have heard or read quite a few comments about the primary election fiasco from dems here in Florida.
Mostly, they are pretty POed about the whole thing, and without Hillary, the Dems have no chance here.
I would predict a record LOW turnout for the Dems in November if it is Obama.
McCain wins vs Obama in Florida.
"anyone but any republican"
Did he explain just when and how this revelation came to him?
Somehow I doubt it occurred to him at the time.
The lefts Bush bashing is a result of the deep psychological damage the 2000 election wrought in the political left.
Come hell or high water, through fabrication or smear, the lefts declaration that “Bush is the worst president in history” was a foregone conclusion well before Bush took his first oath of office.
This conclusion was drawn before 2001 thus a laundry list of rationales needed to be concocted to fit the long ago decided narrative.
Their support of Al Gore and the demonization of Bush need psychological justification and nothing will stand in their way....thus we have blatantly false statements in almost every anti-Bush post.
The only bump in the road for the lefties was 9/11. The Islamic radicals threw a monkey wrench in the leftist world view and made them stand down....temporarily.
If any one thinks the leftists really gives a crap about the capture of bin Laden they are delusional. A free bin Laden is their fondest dream; he’s another factoid to list in their anti-Bush screeds; of more value to them free than dead....and believe me they wish bin Laden a long and healthy life, if only to hang on Bush.
Afghanistan?, spare me. If we weren’t in Iraq they would be declaring surrender for only to accuse Bush of losing the war, thus to notch another supporting claim of their foregone conclusion decided in 2000.
Thus we have the reason for why the Democratic Party continually attempts to torpedo the surge and the quiet desperation of the Democrats as the Iraq War turns a corner with the Iraqi armed forced coming to the fore.
The crowning jewel of the lefts narrative is the loss of Iraq and Afghanistan (and with it the death of American soldiers-again to hang on Bush).
That’s why they need to win the White House, to undermine every foreign policy initiative that Bush, in his radical presidency, has begun, in order to fulfill the goal of claiming revenge for the 2000 election.
In their deeply damaged minds, American failure is their victory over Bush, finally realized.
What I really want to know is why BDS is rampant with so-called conservatives, republicans and FReepers.
The delegitimizing of the Bush presidency has accomplished no good thing for the republicans or the country. It has only served to elevate the demonrats and their insidious claims.
Like Scalia said on C-Span Sunday night, the vote was 7-2 and the topper, Bush was reelected in 2004.
However, as we all know, the libs need something to rally around and Florida recount is their rally point. They are so much like children who had the last candy bar taken away from them.
Right: It’s ALWAYS been about the 2000 election for the “MoveOn” Demodogs and all the media.
