    The OSCE first monitored a US election in 2002, when the Bush administration invited them to. In fact, I believe the first international monitors came in 1990 or 92, when the first Bush administration invited them.

    Where was the outrage then? Now, it's suddenly a GREAT ISSUE and some kind of EVIDENCE that the Obamabots are planning to steal the election or something.

    You RWNJ's just kill me. Y'all seem to think that nobody knows anything about our history.

    I'm wondering why this would bother anyone.

    Meh, are we paying them? Do they have any actual power?

    If the answer is no to both, then i don't really care.

    Well the Carter Institute demands voter identification when it monitors international elections.

    I guess Obama won't be calling Jimmeh. :lol:

    Why did we need an international body to watch us vote starting 10 years ago?

    Just one more step towards giving up our sovereignty and becoming part of the "New World Order".

    I don't recall this happening in 2002 as OldGuy stated, but I was not really into politics then. I wouldn't have liked it then and I don't like it now.

    International monitors at US polling spots draw criticism from voter fraud groups - The Hill - covering Congress, Politics, Political Campaigns and Capitol Hill | TheHill.com

    This sounds a lot like what Jim Harbaugh (49ers) accused Kevin Gilbride (Giants) of not too long ago... attempting to influence election officials before the election. All the while the NAACP, ACLU and other liberal groups are guilty of doing the exact same thing they are complaining about.

    I think is a terrible idea. The UN is only there to stop Mitt Romney from being elected.

    It's a total disgrace and they have no right and no jurisdiction.

    They don't have any power either, so what's the big deal? It's starting to sound like the Republicans are afraid. They got something to hide? :cool:
