    "I predict Roy Cooper will still have a full 100% of the counted votes for Attorney General when they're done."

    Yep I voted for Roy. I thought he did a good job. Maybe we could have him replace Holder and get someone honest holding that job. Nah, Obama would not stand for it.

    "Pay for 4 minutes of Iraq War costs we borrowed..."

    ANd the Afghanistan war costs that we borrowed that Obama supported????? Nothing about that??? Oh and the completely wasted Stimulus, nothing about that??? Oh and the bombing of Libya???? nothing about that??? Oh and the defunct green energy companies????? Nothing about that??? Oh and all the people put out of work by Obama energy policies???? nothing about that. Of course not. By the way, Democrats held control of the Congress during Bushes second term, they could have chosen NOT TO BORROW the money, but they instead preferred to have it as a campaign issue. and now you see the same old Obama. Compromise, NOPE. Big surprise, he comprised on nothing for his first four years thus following policies that were and still are job killers. The Senate is going to have to work with the House to get around this foolish President.

    "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! LAST I CHECKED, THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION WAS ON THE SAME BALLOT, WRAL! IF YOUR HIGHLY IMPORTANT STATE RACES ARE YET TO BE DETERMINED THEN SO IS THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE"

    Depends on whether there are enough uncounted votes to change the current results for the President slot.

    "Trying is one thing. Succeeding as in FL in 2000 is another."

    Who cheated? Bush or was it Gore when he wanted to only recount certain counties. That mess was created by the various counties some of whom attempted to make up their own recount rules post-election. It could all have been avoided if a recount was done according to the State Law in place on election day. The reality is, while it is certainly possible Gore won the vote, Bush might also have won. It is something we are never going to know.
    While I did not want to see Obama elected, either time, just as with McCain, Obama was the clear winner. thank God that Florida is not the decider this year. As I understand it they STILL have not declared a winner. I think they need a special Presidential voting machine. Label the buttons as follows.

    For Dem button label is MASH THIS
    For REP button label is Mash THAT.
    For third party label is MASH ANOTHER

    When Obama is done, even dems are going to WISH it was 2000 again.

    If true then it means they had a great teacher in GW.

    Well, if Linda Coleman demands a recount, she will have cost the state of NC over a million dollars. What could the state do with a MILLION DOLLARS?

    I predict Roy Cooper will still have a full 100% of the counted votes for Attorney General when they're done.

    Anyone scared to have their constituancy present ID to vote.. is a criminal...

  • Worland Nov 9, 5:30 p.m.

    Dems in FL are cheating like crazy to ensure Allen West loses. Let's see if the Dems even count the 8000 military absentee ballots or just throw them out like most Dem controlled election boards across this country do.

  • Mon Account Nov 9, 5:26 p.m.

    Losers still paranoid.

  • TruthBKnown Banned Again01 Nov 9, 5:19 p.m.
