Sore Loser Syndrome

So, yet another poll shows that 47% of Americans don't have a lot of faith in our voting system.

Isn't that about the same percentage that voted Democrat last election?
Here's an interesting tidbit from the article that everybody over at the HuffPo is choosing to ignore:

The only change has been the partisan details. In the 1990s, with a Democrat in the White House, Democrats were more likely than Republicans to believe that elections are fair. Now, with a Republican in the White House, the partisan perspectives have reversed.

Got it? When a Dem is elected, the elections are perceived as fair. The Republicans don't piss and moan that the election was 'stolen'.
When a Republican is in the White House, the elections were rigged.

Pretty much says it all about our moonbat friends, doesn't it?

But when the Dems were in office, they got there by being elected, not by Court fiat

What is it the republicans are always going on about? 'Activist Judges'? Oh, except when they do what you want.

tp "Neither Democrat NOR republican"

And if the Court had decided in Gores favor, you would have stood up and applauded. Gore is the one who forced this into court.
Sore losers.

If Gore had had his way, they would have finished counting the ballots. And the people would have decided.

Imagine that. The people deciding an election in a democracy. Amazing.

Not true. Gore only wanted to recount the ballots in Dem precincts, and he also didnt want to count the military overseas ballots cuz he said they were postmarked a day late.

Well, umm, in a society ruled by law invalid ballots should not be counted, right? But that wasn't ALL military overseas ballots, only invalid ones.

And he wanted to recount in precincts that were having a problem. You can frame that as 'only dem precincts, but the qualifier was 'problematic' not 'democratic'.

Then why werent 'hanging chads' declared as 'invalid'?

Gore didnt want to recount votes in predominantly republican districts because he didnt want Bush to pick up more votes.

It was a very public excerise in hypocrisy.
