    Because the Reps lie cheat and steal. They take advantage of the poor helpless Democrats and make them look bad. It simply must be because the Dems aren't wise to the ways of the world...oh wait, that cant be right ...

    Uh I dunno! How come they keep getting elected?

    We've seen why this year. Obama should be up 10-12 points. But instead of focusing on a few major themes, he and the Dems have a weak, scattershot approach of throwing every minor point they can find, and in the process have drowned out their own message with nonsense about pregnant teenagers, troopers, what George Bush said in 2003, etc.

    O should tell his friends at CNN and MSNBC to STFU about every detail of Palin's life or Bush's record, and set an agenda around a couple major themes.

    Yep they do. I think the difference is that the citizens get to choose who the politicians lie to, who gets shafted when politicians cheat, and who the politicians steal from. It's called "the two party system" and you have to choose one side or the other or you don't get to play.

    I know. This should be the easiest election for the dems to win. With the bad approval rating of Bush, war, gas prices you name it.

    They the Dems should be asking themselves what the hell is going on?

    Even if they win by a close margin something is wrong. This should be a slam dunk election for the dems. :confused:

    Google Karl Rove to answer your question.

    Gore & Kerry won the last two elections. If you add those to Clinton's run, Democrats were elected everytime since daddy bush was thrown out of office.

    Why is it even close? God, Gays and Guns. The GOP have mastered the wedge issues. They get middle class people to vote against their own financial interests.

    That's right, you are voting outside your tax bracket.

    They scare people into thinking terrorists will strike us if the dems win. They say taxes will go up. They say things like, "tax and spenders".

    And the typical voter is not that brite. You know that's true.

    Also consider the Southern Strategy:

    In American politics, the Southern strategy refers to a Republican method of carrying Southern states in the latter decades of the 20th century and first decade of the 21st century by exploiting racism among white voters.

    I don't believe any election was stolen. But given the chance I think both sides would do it in a heart beat.

    bradblog.com deals mostly with voting machines being hacked, but it's a good start. Then google caging voters. Then google shorting heavily black/democratic precincts of enough voting machines so people had to wait 4 hours to vote. Google Ken Blackwell certified the Ohio vote before kerry could ask for a recount.

    Google the 2 bitches that are in jail for 18 months because they threw away votes in Ohio. You don't believe FACTS?

    Then google what happened in Florida. If you are shown all the different tactics the GOP used in Florida and Ohio and don't think they stole the last two elections, then you are a moron.

    Actually, there are several different op ed pieces where if you read them and still don't believe, it's because you don't want to believe.
