    I was sitting at work today, pondering about the election, and something came to me. I didn't realize it before.

    In 2000, (whether the recount was finished or not) Then Governor Bush lost the national popular vote, as well as the popular vote in the state of Florida. The Democrats complained and moaned with statements like "Bush stole the election" or "His brother got Florida for him" ect. Democrats claimed that then Vice President Gore was the rightful President. The Democrats said the same things in 2004, and some still complain about it now.

    Now in the 2008 Presidential Primary for Democrats, Hillary Clinton wins the popular vote, but loses the Delegate and Superdelegate counts.... and NO ONE is saying anything! Where are those Democrats who complained and moaned that Bush "stole" the election? Here is the "supposed" same situation (Primary or Election - doesn't make a difference) and now most of the Democrats are quiet. Come on, whine and moan about it..... I'm waiting. What? Nothing? Why is this?

    My opinion is that the Democrats always blame Republicans for anything and everything that goes wrong, opposes the Dems, or whatever is convenient for them. Then when virtually the same thing happens to them they don't make a peep. They don't want to paint Barack H. Obama the same way that the Democrats painted Bush. They don't want to make him look like a "thief who stole the election." They don't want to lose. They do what is convenient for them. When they lost, they blamed Bush. Now they elected a candidate the the majority did not support, and not a sound. They can't paint Obama the same as they did Bush because it wouldn't look good for them.

    You placed the "standard." Why do you not stick to it???? Typical liberals....

    What the f are you talking about? How could a governor lose the national vote, in a non-national year? What does the national vote have to do with a governor?

    You must be trolling.

    Notice for those who don't know.....

    "Then Governor Bush" refers to George W. Bush, who was the Governor of Texas before he was President of the United States.

    Just to clarify for those who, for some reason, have no clue....

    How about Hillary didn't win the popular vote, maybe that's why most people aren't whining? I looked at the website and it is not in her favor. I haven't seen any major news station report this finding. Actually the news even pointed out how Hillary and only Hillary seems to think she won the pop vote.

    Anyways, the primaries are over.

    Exactly. You proved my point. Democrats try to ask like nothing has happened....

    What a worthless party.....

    She did win the popular vote. Obama gets ZERO votes in Michigan because HIS NAME WASN'T on the ballet.

    But I forgot, the Dems are going to ignore this and sweep it under the rug. To the GOP, its another example of the Liberal Double Standard on the Conservatives....
