    :wtf: The administration has asked 'foreign' monitors to observe the elections:

    So are they "observing" or 'monitoring'? I don't know how I feel about this. I don't like the idea that other countries are coming over to 'babysit' our elections. On the other hand, if they're monitoring, it will keep the liberals from crying "foul" when Bush wins again, at least we'll have witnesses this time that he won fairly, lol!

    That's probably the thinking, but it's wrong. We should not have other countries/UN doing anything with our elections. Especially not France!

    I would like to believe we have honorable politicians who can accept a loss but Gore proved we don't. If Bush is looking at the line up of lawyers on both sides he may feel that he can't just allow 2000 to happen again. I find it childish that the Dems have already announced that they will contest a Bush victory and bringing in monitors form other coutries is surely a sign of internal weakness. Maybe we've reached the critical mass prior to anarchy. All the foreigners can do is witness the chaos.
    The dems will ignore foreigners who state the election was fair. they don't give a shit about them.

    I have to agree with you Dillo. Totally out of control. Where are the grown-ups?

    I am just afraid that the UN monitors might be in bed with the left and if Bush wins, they will still create some kind of controvery by them saying they feel there was too much corruption even if it is unfounded.

    Actually i dont think having foriegn monitors will stop liberals from crying foul. quite the opposite. they will yell that the foriegn monitors had undo influence in the election and be crying foul that they helped cheat them.

    Exactly. The Euroweeinies that will make up the "observers" will most likely cry foul if Bush wins in an attempt to help Kerry.

    I don't like this at all!! As others have posted,I feel that if Bush wins the Dems will say this group had something to do with it. I cannot believe that Gearge Bush is bowing to this crap. The most powerful country in the world does not need help with their elections. Florida maybe(heehee).

    :lame2: :huh:
