    I love reminding how often (read 'always') the Democrats/Liberals/Leftists are wrong.

    1. Speaking of which.....today, December 12th, 2000 is one such anniversary

    Remember how they wept, claiming that the Supreme Court gave...GAVE.....the election to Bush?

    "U.S. Supreme Court decision on the presidential election
    On this day in 2000, the U.S. Supreme Court effectively awarded the presidency to George W. Bush, ruling that a fair recount of ballots in Florida could not be performed by the deadline for certifying the state's electors."
    On This Day December 12 - Historic Events and People



    As Britannica, like nearly all of the media, is infected with Leftists, they put it this way: "awarded the presidency to George W. Bush,..."



    Now, the truth:

    2. “Gore won” is the equivalent of a political Stanford-Binet IQ Test. And this is a one-question test, so the stakes are high. The bad news, you failed. The good news? Your level of knowledge has attained its nadir, so you have no place to go, but up.

    Here is the correct response, you may use it to prepare for your next exam:

    In the first full study of Florida's ballots since the election ended, The Miami Herald and USA Today reported George W. Bush would have widened his 537-vote victory to a 1,665-vote margin if the recount ordered by the Florida Supreme Court would have been allowed to continue, using standards that would have allowed even faintly dimpled "undervotes" -- ballots the voter has noticeably indented but had not punched all the way through -- to be counted.

    3. The lead of an April 4, 2001 USA Today story headlined, “Newspapers' recount shows Bush prevailed,” by reporter Dennis Cauchon:

    George W. Bush would have won a hand count of Florida's disputed ballots if the standard advocated by Al Gore had been used, the first full study of the ballots reveals. Bush would have won by 1,665 votes -- more than triple his official 537-vote margin -- if every dimple, hanging chad and mark on the ballots had been counted as votes, a USA TODAY/Miami Herald/Knight Ridder study shows. The study is the first comprehensive review of the 61,195 "undervote" ballots that were at the center of Florida's disputed presidential election....



    New York Times headline clearly stated, "Study of Disputed Florida Ballots Finds Justices Did Not Cast the Deciding Vote,
    EXAMINING THE VOTE: THE OVERVIEW; Study of Disputed Florida Ballots Finds Justices Did Not Cast the Deciding Vote




    And, one more Leftist lie shredded.

    An exhaustive review of last year's disputed presidential election in Florida indicates that George W. Bush still would have defeated Al Gore even if Mr. Gore had been granted the limited vote recounts he was seeking. Several U.S. news organizations consider the study the final word on the 2000 presidential election.

    The study found that even if Al Gore had won the right to limited recounts in Florida, he still would have lost to Mr. Bush by at least 200 votes. The official results gave Mr. Bush a 537 vote victory.

    In addition, the SCOTUS decision was not 5-4 for Bush (as widely reported). It was actually 7-2 on the merits, but 2 Justices wanted to give the Florida Supreme Court a third chance to get it right. However the MSM characterized the decision as a purely partisan effort to award the election to an illegitimate President.

    Sound familiar?

    we were right about gay rights

    and you were wrong!

    we were right about pot legalization

    and you were so wrong you actually enjoyed destroying peoples lives because they smoke pot! you weren't just wrong, you were evil.

    you were wrong about gay marriage

    you were wrong when you ignored norway and finland as though they don't exist and insisted that ALL forms of socialism are like venezuela

    you were wrong when you insisted that DEMOCRATS gave us slavery while completely ignoring the fact that THOSE democrats were CONSERVATIVES and CHRISTIANS

    other things the left was RIGHT about;

    women are running for president
    we just a black president
    even conservatives would vote for a black or a woman
    divorce is EASY to get (just ask limbaugh and trump and gingrich)
    interracial relationships are common
