Romney/Barbour will release all murderers and terrorist from prisons to kill more innocent people. You are sick to approve that.

Please explain what you mean by that statement. People on election boards I have known are very careful to do a thorough and accurate job.

I heard about the hanging chads, but not the waste baskets. Not a very nice thing to do, if true. More like dictatorship countries.

What a load of pure unadulterated B.S. If that is the extent of the "dirt" you can dig up on Romney you're REALLY grasping at straws.

Romney picks Barbour for his Vice President candidate. You know the Republican that releases convicted murders from prison.

It is the facts that Jeb Bush governor of Florida at the time cheated so his brother George Bush could win the President race. Republicans can not win on a level playing field.

It is your opinion, not facts.

How did Jeb Bush "cheat"? By refusing to discount military votes? By refusing to let one precinct re-vote and thus decide the general election? By refusing to allow liberal hacks to subjectively interpret "voter intent" via evaluation of "pregnant chads"? The entire Florida recount debacle is a sordid element of history of the gross corruption of the democratic party.

He stole democrat voters ballots and hid them. Bush has always cheated to win.

So true. After all the re-counting and all that mess, way after the noise from the left died down, funny we never hear that it was Bush that won. The left will dig the ballots up in the land fill 100 years from now and try to count them again if you let them.
They are just pissed they got caught trying to rig the count.
