How Come Florida Legislature Keeps Screwing Up Federal Elections
I was just remembering how much Florida screwed up the Presidential Election in 2000. Here is what Leiberman said at the time:

"I wanted to make a comment on one aspect of the continuing developments in Florida which really does trouble me,... I am very disappointed and disturbed about the continuing movement by the Florida legislature, now encouraged by Governor Jeb Bush, to consider choosing their own slate of electors after almost six million people in Florida voted on Election Day.

Now that is not what has happened in Florida this year [2000]. And I do think this action by the Florida legislature really threatens the credibility and legitimacy of the ultimate choice of electors in Florida. It threatens to put us into a constitutional crisis, which we are not in now by any stretch of the word. And I just want to appeal to Governor Jeb Bush and the members of the Florida legislature to reconsider this action."

So now it is 2008 and those idiots broke the Democratic Primary rules and had their election too early and now their is another crises (for the Democrats at least, thank God the Republicans have their act together) and they don't know what to do.

Idiots tard

Because Florida is controlled by the Bush family. Indirectly. I know Jeb isn't the governor anymore but I get the sense that it still matters.

the Republicans have their act together
 Quoting: Incompetence Perhaps? 115


If the Republicans seemingly have their act together,
it's because they are up to their *old tricks* again, as usual.

To prevent the voting "irregularities" like that of 'other' Florida elections,
Democrats insisted upon having a "paper" trail which was ultimately passed
by the 'Republican-controlled' Florida legislature, but ONLY after the 'Republicans'
tied the 'earlier' primary voting date to the bill. Therefore, Democrats could not vote
against the bill as 'corrupted' by the Republicans without also losing the "paper trail"
which is of utmost importance to them as well as to most of us conscientious
Floridians.


"The Republicans seemingly have their act together" ???

Not unless one considers 'dirty politics' as a good thing!


'Karl Rove' tactics are a disgrace
&, in this presidential race,
"dirty politics" have no place
except where "the sun don't shine"
in the Sunshine State!


scheming

Based on your quote Mr. Predictor, I actually never looked at it in those terms.

The only thing I know about Florida, working for the feds in Ohio, is that Florida has the most business scams that I've ever seen.

Beautiful beaches and killer restaurants, but don't invest big dollars there.
