President Certified After Objection Delay
Thursday, January 06, 2005
WASHINGTON A joint session of Congress resumed meeting Thursday evening and quickly finalized certification of President Bush's (search) 286 Electoral College votes to Democrat John Kerry's 251.
A candidate needs 270 votes to win the presidential election. Kerry running mate John Edwards received one Electoral vote. The certification was delayed for several hours after Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, D-Ohio, stopped the formal declaration of Bush's second term to protest voting irregularities.
The joint session had met earlier in the day but quickly recessed per congressional rules to go to their respective chambers to debate certification. The Senate voted 74-1 and the House 267-31 to reject an objection to the certification of Ohio's 20 Electoral College votes.

Can he subpoenoe the birth certificate from Hawaii now?
And if he is going to object on the grounds of not "Natural Born" even if born in Hawaii, then I think he needs to be prepared to get what the founding fathers said in front of the other congressmen/senators in writing.
“What will bushhaters do without him?
How will they get off everyday?”
What I want to know is how will hacks like Bill Maher make a living? Are they going to ask for a bailout?
