150? You guys are freaking out about 150 alleged fraudulent votes, while republicans disenfranchised tens of thousands of voters in 2000 and 2004 (and
probably 2008 as well)???
Oh, and didn't Obama get over 60% of the votes in the election? It's kind of hard to claim that he didn't get votes when the majority of Americans
voted for him.
Uhm, I think you misread the article. We arent talking about 150 votes. What the artcle is about is the number of signatures that are required in
order to get a name on the ballot in Indiana to run for president. If requires a certain amount of verified signatures. What this college student
discovered was fraud with reagrds to the signatures submitted to get Obamas name on the ballot.
The situation it creates is problematic if there arent enough signatures. That would mean Obamas name should have never been placed on the ballot,
which could have been significant enough where he may have lost the election.
The DNC chair for Indianan denied the allegations and shortly afterwards resigned from his position. The FEC was notified, who declined to
investigate, refering the matter back to the State to investigate, which they are doing.( in addition the checking the signatures of the Mccain
With that being said you should try to get over the stupid tit for tat blame game. Fraudulent signatures in Indiana has nothing to do with Bush and
attempting to draw a parallel is a joke based on political loyalties and nothing else.
At some point our Gvoernment, as well as people with your mindset, need to get with the picture that the past is the past and nothing is ever going to
change it. Blaming Bush / Republicans is a lame excuse, especially since they have been out of power for almsot 4 years now. Guess what - Bush is not
President anymore, which means Obama has had the last 4 years to fix things.
The blame game doesnt work anymore unless you are arguing that while Bush messed things up, Obama has made it worse.
Whether its 150 signatures or 1.5 million signatures, it needs to be investigated and resolved. The goal is to seek the truth, egardless of whther or
not you like what that truth may be.,
