Joe Biden: Supreme Court was wrong; Al Gore was elected president of the United States
The Examiner ^ | 6/12/13 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 06/12/2013 10:15:25 AM PDT by illiac

Vice President Joe Biden praised former Vice President Al Gore, who was present during a fundraiser for Massachusetts Senate Candidate Ed Markey, asserting that Gore had actually won the the 2000 presidential election.

With characteristic hyperbole, Biden introduced the former Vice President while praising his political career.

“This man was elected president of the United States of America,” Biden said according to the pool report. “No, no, no. He was elected president of the United States of America. But for the good of the nation, when the bad decision in my view was made, he did the right thing for the nation.”

Biden, a potential 2016 candidate for president, praised Gore’s decision to accept the Supreme Court’s decision and walk away from the presidency.

Back when he had his aneurysm surgery, the brain surgeons told Biden that he had less than a 50% chance of being normal quote-unquote . . . looks like the estimate can go as low as one pleases.

We REALLY dodged a bullet with Gore!

I believe that we would've been bankrupt by now, sitting in the dark and freezing to death in the winter, besides being 700 trillion dollars in debt due to man-bear-pig’s nutty environazism.

Can we ever see liberals get over the 2000 election?

And, can we ever state the true facts of that case? The Supreme Court did NOT select Bush as president. The Court put a stop to the endless recounting of the votes in Florida, as a violation of equal protection as applied to vote counting. The Court got involved because lawsuits were filed by Democrats in the first place.

The liberals always act as if the Supreme Court picked our president, when in reality, they were deciding lawsuits over vote counting procedures.

And, if somehow the Court had ruled that recounts would have continued inFlorida, and the end result was Gore winning, liberals would not constantly bring up what happened with courts involved with an election.

Liberals are only happy with court intervention if Democrats win, such as court intervention in Washington’s governor election recount, and the Al Franken Senate election recount in Minnesota.

Look on the plus side: what these anti-Republic fools are accomplishing, exposing those who need to be weeded out of the gene pool, would remain hidden for decades without the help of fools like Biden and little barry bastard boy’s henchgoons. IF the Republic rises again after the coming collapse, we’ll know what weeds look like fer shur.

Biden is a court jester, a shiny object, meant to distract and divert citizens from the volumenous spew of corruption emanating from the White Hut.

Ignore this buffoon. Keep your eyes on the real issues.

Except Gore wasn’t.

If Florida had done a partial recount that Gore demanded (only a few heavily Democrat counties), he would have lost.

In a full recount, he would have “won” only under some very liberal recounting standards, which were made without any opportunity to challenge the standard or individual ballots. It was so close, there is no way to predict the outcome.

No liberal who is still in disbelief about the 2000 election ever admits that Nixon won 1960 and took the higher ground in not putting the nation through what BOTH Gore AND Kerry did (Bush never did get to deliver an election night victory speech).

Al Franken was SELECTED, NOT ELECTED.

He manufactured victory and destroyed legitimate votes.

Another of the stolen seats that was necessary to reach the 60 seat Senate that pushed through Obamacare.

The national popular vote was only 0.51% in favor of Mr. Gore (half a percent). It did not include many outstanding mail in ballots (that would not have affected the electoral votes) across the nation. It did not include allegations of possible vote fraud (that would not have affected the electoral votes).

If we went to a popular vote victory, we would still be recounting ballots nationwide in the 2000 vote.

Keep that in mind as FLA is a “1964 Voting Rights” monitored state.

Demos stole that seat in the senate. They kept finding more and more and more votes until they could say Franken won.

If not for stealing this one seat, obamacare wouldn’t be law.

We whine, and rightfully so, about the the poor choices Republicans have running for president, but one look at the Democrat offerings, and the Republican Party appears to be trying. Gore, Kerry, Obama, with a half-wit like Biden as VP, represent the radical left’s best political efforts and brain power. Put all for of them together in a closet, and it is unlikely IQ level would rise to room temperature. The rest of the world can’t help but look at us, and know we are over.

Well, Plugs, I say SCOTUS was wrong in the Obamacare decision!

Actually, I believe SCOTUS has been wrong on a lot of decisions and is the number one reason for erosion of most of our freedoms that are supposed to guaranteed by the Constitution.

That’s my take as well. I think Bush really won the popular vote, but itvwipl never be known because of all the states like California, that threw away their absentee ballots because they wouldn’t have made a difference in where the states electoral votes would have gone. Assuming prior trends for Presidental absentee ballots (favoring GOP candidates) counting the uncounted ballots in CA alone would have given Bush the national pop vote.

Franken got an obscene amount of legitimate votes. He did not win. Fraudulent votes were permitted, good ballots were rejected, and a three thousand vote victory was eliminated by liberal court order. Selected, not elected.

I can’t say that Bush “did” win the popular vote. At 0.51% victory for the “declared” winner, it was a statistical tie well inside the margin of error. Without a national recount, the number means nothing to EITHER side.
