    I will caveat this article with the admission that Newsmax can hardly be described as non-partisan. But that doesn't change the fact that what they report in this piece is fundamentally true - even if they do tend to dress it up just a bit.

    Florida Officials Shred Jimmy Carter's 'Shockingly Partisan' Lies

    Florida officials have put the worst president in modern American history in his place.

    Jimmy Carter's latest paranoid fantasies about the presidential vote – apparently he fears that John Kerry, like Al Gore, might not be able to steal the election – are as botched as his four years of White House malaise, according to officials.

    "This is a shockingly partisan opinion piece, and it's unfortunate that a person such as the former president is being used by the Democratic Party for low-level political rhetoric," Jacob DiPietre, press secretary for Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, is quoted as saying today in the Washington Times.

    "It's clear that [Carter] doesn't have his facts straight. The governor believes that it's ironic that someone who has spent so much time and so much energy encouraging faith in the elections of Third World countries would go to such lengthy, partisan extremes to undermine voter confidence in his own country," DiPietre said.

    Carter, the abettor of Marxist tyrants Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez, "made no attempt to get up-to-date information before writing a critical opinion piece and never tried to contact the governor's office or that of Florida Secretary of State Glenda Hood," the Times reported, quoting state officials.

    'Lies'

    Rep. Katherine Harris, who was Florida's secretary of state during Gore's failed coup attempt of 2000, noted that Carter "appears radically misinformed" about election reforms, "or he is seeking to plant the seeds of illegitimacy for any election a Democrat does not win."

    She said, "Either way, Mr. Carter, who once pledged that he would never lie to us, should avoid spreading the lies of others."

    The Wall Street Journal in an editorial today wrote of recent attempts of the "heavy-breathing" New York Times and other Democrats to racially exploit an investigation into Democrat vote fraud in Orlando's mayoral election.

    The Journal recalled, "In June 2001, following a six-month investigation that included subpoenas of Florida state officials from Governor Jeb Bush on down, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights issued a report that found no evidence of voter intimidation, no evidence of voter harassment, and no evidence of intentional or systematic disenfranchisement of black voters."

    And: "Which leaves the 'stolen election' crowd with these inconvenient facts: In 24 of the 25 Florida counties with the highest ballot spoilage rate, the county supervisor was a Democrat. In the 25th county, the supervisor was an Independent. And as for the 'felon purge list,' the Miami Herald found that whites were twice as likely to be incorrectly placed on the list as blacks."

    The New York Post observed today in an editorial headlined "Jimmy Carter's War on Democracy":

    Yes, there are problems.
    New York elections, for example, are replete with anecdotal evidence suggesting substantial polling irregularities. What do you suppose the odds are Carter will come to town to lecture fellow Democrats on how to hold fair elections?

    Jimmy Carter seems to have a thing for heavy-handed rulers; before Chavez, there was his affection for North Korea's Stalinist thug, Kim Jong Il.

    That's between the former president and his conscience, of course. But he would do well to butt out of America's sometimes flawed, but fundamentally fair, electoral processes.

    does it surprise you that an ineffective 'leader' of the Dem Party would critize something they don't understand? What Dem's won't acknowledge is the court findings showing NOTHING illegal/unethical was done in Florida, at least by the Republicans. We won't get into Dem's getting Felons and Dead people to vote. ;)

    Its a vast right wing conspiracy you here! The people are supposed to vote Democrat. Democrats are the best leaders. the people are just to stupid to realize whats in their best interest. So what if Democrats have to get a few dead people out to vote. Just shows they have better get out the vote programs. And if the soldiers want their votes to count they shouldnt volunteer to fight in Imperial agressive wars. Its their own fault. if they the voted the way Democrats wanted and werent so evil this wouldnt be a problem.

    Is that sarcasm???? LOL

    It does seem sometimes like the Democratic Party assumes the American people are too stupid to know what's good for them and have appointed themselves as caretaker for the poor lost souls.

    The Democrats are masters of ignoring facts and twisting the truth into an unrecognizeable knot. In their current state of desperation, they rationalize any means as justifying the end. They even actively hope for some disaster to befall our nation or our military so that Democrats will gain some leverage among voters.

    We still hear lame accusations about election theft from the left despite numerous investigations both governmental and private which failed to support their theory.

    Yet when an effort is made to assure that the people who vote are in fact entitled to do so, Democrats get on their hypocritical high horse and start screeching about "disenfranchising" voters. Naturally, they accuse Republicans of disenfranchising BLACK voters because that gives libs a two-for-one whammy.

    I want some voters to be disenfranchised. Illegal aliens, felons, and "voters" whose address is on a headstone SHOULD be "disenfranchised". So why is it that Democrats vociferously oppose even rudimentary efforts at voter identification? The reason Democrats advance for their opposition to voter identification is a nebulous assertion that voter identification will discourage mostly poor people from going to the polls. Say what? How does showing a driver's license or other form of ID discourage a legitimate voter? The real reasons Democrats oppose identification requirements is that they fear that convicted felons with outstanding warrants will not vote, or that illegal aliens will avoid the polls for fear of being picked up. I can see where liberals would oppose voter identification - it would cut into their support base.

    The truth is that Democrats have in the past committed massive voter fraud. The election of John F. Kennedy serves as an example. Chicago mayor Richard Daley and the Mafia both cooperated with Democrats to stuff ballot boxes and discourage oppostion votes. Democrats continue their devious and hypocritical efforts today. They rail against voter identification efforts because they know that the huge majority of illegal votes will be cast for Democratic candidates.

    exactly -

    I used this example in another thread, but this is what Dem's are doing:


    A republican state government threw out some votes of convicted fellons. Some of those fellons are black. The democrats launch a campaign to 'get the word out' that Republicans are throwing out the votes of blacks!!.

    :-/

    Retards...
