Current gets 41,000 viewers on an average night. Al Jazerra got screwed. They bought something for $500 million which has no value. They are as stupid as a bunch of brain dead "calif" democrats. And, you can't be any stupider than the morons who vote for "calif" democrats.

Icited what I had said. I said nothing about the "scenario that got Gore ahead," that was you, and was a statement of partisan bias.
Naturally, you ONLY pay attention to scenarios that resulted in a Bush victory, your only aim...and ignore the shenanigans which brought the polling in Florida to the point where the USSC intervened.
America suffered as a result of Bush's election. But to you, only the result matters - party first, country last. As always.
Bush winning the election isn't a scenario, it actually happened. That isn't bias, it's fact. And any "shenanigans" that required SCOTUS intervention were started by Dems who couldn't accept the fact their man lost.

It's sad that 12 years later you still can't accept that, and sore loser talk about "the SCOTUS making the popular vote irrelevant" is not only inaccurate, but of course shows your own immense bias and partisanship.

As far as the country "suffering" under Bush, I'll use the ol' Obama excuse "But things would have been so much worse had the other guy won"

LOL

they don't like to bring up that every liberal group in existence went there to count votes to prove Gore won and ALL the recounts had Bush as the winner. Every one of them

Some of the more creative ones had Gore ahead and that's what they are still focused on 12 years later.

Some of the more deranged insist Bush also stole the 2004 election somehow.

CBS that bastion of liberalism did one and they even had Bush winning. The fact that this person is still arguing this shows he is insane. And just think about what kind of president gore would have been. He would have almost have been as bad as obammy

Al jazeera is anti-American,a terrorist outlet, and anti-Semetic. Perfect for our Muslim symathizers in the Obama Administration. How many of the Democrats realize how bad this looks for them?

The Secretary of State was the first big government insider to cash in on a,'go soft on the m.Brotherhood' position. Hil paved the way.

They are counting on people forgetting by the next election cycle come 2014. Sad thing is most people will have forgot about this by then.
