AOL comment, and my response (continuing my riff on the Democrat DISENFRANCHISMENT of voters in Florida and Michigan):
"You see, this is why democrats cannot rule effectively. They cannot even follow their own rules. You see in this big bad World if you dealing with bad people you cannot ask for a do over."
I agree that this shows why Democrats should NOT be given the complete control of the country they are seeking in 2008. But it is NOT because they "can't follow their own rules".
Republicans faced the same problem. They, however--believing that people should not be DISENFRANCHISED--imposed a sanction on Florida and Michigan of losing half of their delegates. But the people's vote COUNTED (and, in Florida, probably determined the republican nominmatiion; as Florida may well have determined the Democratic nomination for Hillary Clinton if the DNC had not DISENFRANCHISED two whole states.
Ironic, isn't it, that leftist Demcrats want to FORGIVE illegal immigrants, while imposing the death penalty on voters of Michingan and Florida. You don't care much about democracy if you are willng to deprive the voters of TWO WHOLE STATES of the vote. Hypocrisy? The Democratic Party regularly argues that polls should be kept open, beyond their official closing, because of voting glitches (rules anyone?), but are willing to deprive voters of entire states of the vote.
Do you reallize that the Obama forces got a FEDERAL COURT ORDER to keep certain polls open in Cleveland beyond their official closing rime (rules anyone?), on the allegation that people were being deprived of their right to vote because of weather problems and missing ballots. Democrats seem to do similar things every election. Yet, Obama is willing to deprive the voters of TWO WHOLE STATES of the right to vote, and/or to have their vote count.
Hypocrisy, thy name is Obama. Hypocrisy, thy name is Democrat.
P.S. I realize that this subject is getting redundant. However, I am on a roll. Besides, I feel stronly about this. Every election Democrats talk about "voter irregularites" and having "every vote count", and then they deprive voters of TWO WHOLE STATES of their votes. To me, that is shameful.
