    I have spent more money on polls and focus groups than any president in U.S. history.

    I am actively working on a policy of "disengagement" creating the most hostile of Israel-Palestine relations in at least 30 years.

    I am first president in history to have a majority of Europeans (71%) view my presidency as the biggest threat to world peace and security.

    Florida's 'Disappeared Voters': Disfranchised by the GOP
    by Gregory Palast

    According to an April 2, 2001, MSNBC report, Florida state officials have "quietly changed" the policy that purged eligible voters from its rolls. Anita Hodgkiss, with the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights, said in a message that it was The Nation's investigative reports that "forced the state to change its position on out-of-state ex-felons."

    n Latin America they might have called them votantes desaparecidos, "disappeared voters." On November 7 tens of thousands of eligible Florida voters were wrongly prevented from casting their ballots--some purged from the voter registries and others blocked from registering in the first instance. Nearly all were Democrats, nearly half of them African-American. The systematic program that disfranchised these legal voters, directed by the offices of Florida Governor Jeb Bush and Secretary of State Katherine Harris, was so quiet, subtle and intricate that if not for George W. Bush's 500-vote eyelash margin of victory, certified by Harris, the chance of the purge's discovery would have been vanishingly small.

    The group prevented from voting has few defenders in either party: felons. It has been well reported that Florida denies its nearly half a million former convicts the right to vote. However, the media have completely missed the fact that Florida's own courts have repeatedly told the Governor he may not take away the civil rights of Florida citizens who committed crimes in other states, served their time and had their rights restored by those states.

    People from other states who have arrived in Florida with a felony conviction in their past number "clearly over 50,000 and likely over 100,000," says criminal demographics expert Jeffrey Manza of Northwestern University. Manza estimates that 80 percent arrive with voting rights intact, which they do not forfeit by relocating to Florida.

    Nevertheless, agencies controlled by Harris and Bush ordered county officials to reject attempts by these eligible voters to register, while, publicly, the governor's office states that it adheres to court rulings not to obstruct these ex-offenders in the exercise of their civil rights. Further, with the aid of a Republican-tied database firm, Harris's office used sophisticated computer programs to hunt those felons eligible to vote and ordered them thrown off the voter registries.

    After reviewing The Nation's findings, voter demographics authority David Bositis concluded that the purge-and-block program was "a patently obvious technique to discriminate against black voters." Bositis, senior research associate at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies in Washington, DC, notes that based on nationwide conviction rates, African-Americans would account for 46 percent of the ex-felon group wrongly disfranchised. Corroborating Bositis's estimate, the Hillsborough County elections supervisor found that 54 percent of the voters targeted by the "scrub" are African-American, in a county where blacks make up 11 percent of the voting population.

    Bositis suggests that the block-and-purge program "must have had a partisan motivation. Why else spend $4 million if they expected no difference in the ultimate vote count?" Florida's black voters gave Al Gore nine out of ten of their votes; white and Hispanic felons, mostly poor, vote almost as solidly Democratic. A recently released University of Minnesota study estimates that, for example, 93 percent of felons of all races favored Bill Clinton in 1996. Whatever Florida's motive for keeping these qualified voters out of the polling booths on November 7, the fact is that they represented several times George W. Bush's margin of victory in the state. Key officials in Bush's and Harris's agencies declined our requests for comment.

    The NAACP, tipped off to the racially suspect voter purge by early reports of this investigation, added the tainted felon-hunt to its lawsuit, filed January 10, against Harris, her elections unit chief Clay Roberts and their private database contractor. The suit accuses them of violating the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Constitution's equal protection amendment. The NAACP demands an immediate injunction to halt the felon purge.

    Melanie...I totally believe this blackout may not have effected the whole country, but for some reason there have been some totally awesome posts on this BB in the last 24hrs, and I for one am in awe! Thanks for the post, as you are totally inspiring!

    OMG!!! I knew this guy was EVIL, and I knew about most of the things mentioned, but he just get's WORSE! What's worse is that Tony Blair kisses his arse on a regular basis!

    If you do an internet search, you can bring up a great deal of amusing things about George W Bush. Such as amusing games and websites dedicated to this completely dangerous fanatical idiot.
    Such as:

    There are MANY others!

    Love this one:

    "It isn't pollution that's harming the environment.
    It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it."

    And also:

    "Mars is essentially in the same orbit...Mars is somewhat the same distance from the Sun, which is very important. We have seen pictures where there are canals, we believe, and water. If there is water, that means there is oxygen. If oxygen, that means we can breathe."

    I'd like to send him up to Mars and see if he can breathe...:chuckle

    My sister has a daily "Bush-isms" calendar. It's hilarious.

    I stand by my original impression:

    Marie Claire magazine did presidential election coverage between the two major candidates back when they were both running and Clinton was leaving office.

    This magazine is a publication whose focus group is women. It's a women's magazine that covers women's issues monthly along with all of their other content. Not the NY Times, but a decent and fun publication that happens to bring topics like abortion rights, genital mutilation, and the rape and suffering of women around the world to the table for our consideration and enlightenment.

    Each candidate was given one full page to discuss why American WOMEN should vote for him.

    Al Gore did a fair job (I wasn't a supporter of his, but he tried) and discussed various child care, birth control, abortion, and fair pay issues relevant to women. He used the word "women" or some variation of that over 40 times in one page.

    George Bush, on the other hand, neglected to speak about a single relevant topic, focusing instead on military and financial topics. He had not ONE SINGLE REFERENCE on or in his page referring to women, girls, ladies, etc., and did not ONCE even acknowledge a single topic that might be particularly relevant to female voters. He didn't even BOTHER.

    He managed to take what was, IMO, a fantastic opportunity to "sell himself" politically and piss it away.

    I did NOT vote for him (nor did I vote for Gore, but that's a different subject entirely) and I feel quite strongly that his record speaks for itself.

    I would vote for David Duke before I voted for Dubya.

    I have to say, though, I LOVE the quotes page. Kind of like that Bush speech generator- have you all seen that?

    Also, try this site for hilarious quotes and commentary. It's one of my favorites, and some of the quotes have audio files.

    Two of my favorites:

    There are a couple of cows waiting for me. You know, when I first got back from Washington, it seemed like the cows were talking back. But now that I've spent some time in Crawford, they're just cows.

    With so many people becoming aware of GWB's incompetence, I can't see how he could win a legitimate election. It just doesn't seem feasable, does it? We have been in this rut long enough.

    The heck of it is, the Democrats don't have a strong candidate. All we can do is hope to high Heaven someone emerges from the pack, and SOON, or it will be too late to save us from four more years of war, economic deterioration, dwindling respect from the rest of the world, undermining of our freedoms and continued dismantling of the wall between church and State.

    I know that the lack of a strong Democratic candidate is an ominous sign that we may be destined to remain in this slump, mjlrn, but what is the reason for all this blind support for this goofla of a president? I just don't understand that part at all.
    Another problem is, GWB has a whole lot of financial clout that none of the other candidates have. I think if Howard Dean had more than the grassroots supporters and some of those big business bucks behind him, he'd be more of a contender, but that just isn't the case. It's so discouraging. I just want my country back!

    Is there a place where one can view the actual candidates who are planning to run? Or is it too early for that? I'd like to see who I'm having to choose between.

    sbic: see my post under the "Speech to Remember" thread, if you want my take on why people support Bush. It's downright frightening if you think about it long enough; think back 60 years ago or so to Nazi Germany....surely the majority of good Germans did not believe the Jews deserved to be destroyed, but Hitler was unquestionably a leader in a time of uncertainty and turmoil, and his passionate speeches spoke to their insecurities.

    Now, I hope the conservatives on this BB don't take what I just said to mean I think Bush and Hitler are anywhere in the same ballpark as human beings. I see Bush as basically a decent man whose major failing as a politician is an overdeveloped sense of entitlement due to having been born into privilege. (For the record, I think the same was true of JFK.) But I also see some parallels between Germany in the 1930s and the US immediately after 9/11, and history has proven time and again that times like those tend to turn otherwise mediocre men into mighty leaders who command respect, and even adoration, that they really do not deserve, and would not receive in more settled times.

    Again, this is only my opinion, so please save the flames for someone who believes theirs is the only *correct* opinion. That's one of the things I've always loved about this country: everyone had a right to express their own least, until the new political correctness got the Dixie Chicks banned from radio stations across the country and Faux News crowned as the sole proprietor of the words "fair and balanced" (that's a joke for another day). And you wonder why some of us are scared for the nation's future.....?
