Kerry: "I won the popular vote in the battleground states by two percentage points." -- WRONG
Meet the Press ^ | 1/30/05 | John Kerry on Meet the Press

Posted on 02/01/2005 12:08:30 PM PST by tellw

SEN. KERRY: I lost, Tim, to an incumbent president by a closer margin than an incumbent president has ever won re-election before in the history of the country, and if you add up the popular vote in the battleground states, I won the popular vote in the battleground states by two percentage points. We just didn't distribute it correctly in Ohio.

Al Gore won the popular vote nationwide and look what that got him.

A one-way trip into the abyss of insanity.

As with ANYTHING libs say, you have to ask what is the definition of Battleground States, or a better question:

Senator sKerry, what ARE the Battleground states.

Then of course, we need to ask how he is calculating things: Is he calculating by actual votes? Or by intended votes? Or is he adding in a certain number of votes to cover the supposed 'disenfranchised' voter (sometimes called STUPID voters).

Remember, with politicians, and libs in particular, you never know what they truly mean.

Of course, all this above may be moot and sKerry is either lying or his memory fragments are so jumbled up he honestly believes he won the popular vote (sound familiar?).

Even assuming his assertion is true (and I don't know if it is), that and around $2.50 will get him a cup of coffee at Starbucks. So we all should say, "Sit on it, John."

Dizzy Lizzy popped up in DUmmie land a few times. No wonder every time she opened her mouth it was more votes for GWB. She's just another moonbat fruitcake.

He was also heard to explain, "I have won at roulette several times. It just happened that I had my chips on the wrong numbers."

Another good baseball analogy would be a team that gets more hits in a game than their opponent. Nice stat but all that matters is runs.

Nothing drives me crazier than leaving runners on base.

He's a liar, and a stupid one at that. Perhaps Kerry is just delusional... Now how can you say that about my ole buddy pal johnny Boy. The man that voted for it before he voted against it... and has a seared memory to boot?

I'm sure he'll blame this mistake on a member of his staff his manservant

I saw a transcript on here that detailed Kerry's berating of Marvin the manservant over a missing brush on the campaign bus. Had the voting public seen or heard it, Kerry would have been lucky to get 8%..

I really don't understand this obsession. We're talking about a 3 million or so margin nationwide, and over a hundred thousand votes in the decisive state (OH). It's not a few hundred votes here or there, with credible allegations of fraud or incompetence to go with them. That would make a difference, and would be more understandable if they made such a fuss over. But Bush has been inaugurated, the bands have gone home, Congress is in session, the army is in its barracks, no one is going to jail or being shot over the election. Why can't Kerry and the 'Rats just get on with their lives?

We just didn't distribute it correctly in Ohio.

If candidates were allowed to redistribute votes, any of a dozen different third-parties (Such as the World Workers Party) could have won 49 states by distributing their several thousand votes across the 49 states while piling all other votes into one state. I am reasonably sure that we will never have an election system where the candidates are allowed to re-distribute votes....Sorry Kerry, it ain't gonna happen...

Isn't there some kind of statute of limitations on being a sore loser?

Keep an eye on Al Gore, when he goes away we'll know what the time limit is.

I pulled the lever for Kerry/Edwards and then lifted it again before voting, FIRMLY, for Bush-Cheney. I did this just so I could say I actually did vote for Kerry before I voted against him! :)

49 touchdown passes in one regular season is a nice record but it won't get you a Lombardi trophy.

And beating the dead horse.

If he had any dignity, he'd realize how much he's embarrasing himself.

Once again, 'Rats, it the Electoral College that counts! And if Barbara Boxer and Lincoln Chaffee officially introduce their proposal to have it abolished, I will write to my Congressional representative, Mary Ann Davis (VA-1), asking her to begin impeachment procedings against them for violating Article IV Section 4 of the United States Constitution, which guarantees a republican form of government to the several states.
