You did figure this out – it’s about how Main Street America thinks vs Wall Street.

Name a socialist policy of Obama. Can you define socialism? The fact is, Obama would be considered far right in most western democracies – but the American political landscape is tilted so far right that a man who has only slightly deviated from the far right policies of his predecessor, a “Bush lite”, can apparently be labelled a socialist. The reality is that America’s politics seem to be sliding closer to fascism than socialism – and looking at countries like Norway, which can lay claim to to at least being social-democratic, if not socialist, they have produced a society of enviable health and services – and have a government savings fund of over 600 billion, which means their government can largely be run off the interest. Sounds like those “socialists” know how to turn a tidy profit.

New American Standard Bible (NASB)
44 “You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks [a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”.I’m assuming this is aimed at Rmoney, whom even the hard right media have been calling out for out-lying the President by a substantial margin to date?
It seems oft repeated by right-leaning commentators that there was a full recount in Florida in 2000, which Bush won clean; this is not in fact so. Some counties refused to recount, and regardless, the US Supreme Court stopped the recount Dec. 9. There were a large number of irregularities in how the Florida vote was carried out – not least of which was that the Republican Secretary of State, in charge of voting procedures in the state, was also co-chair of the Bush campaign. Katherine Harris was involved with purging 54,000 supposed felons from the rolls prior to the election, a majority of which were African-Americans (generally Dem. supporters), and most of whom were not felons, and therefore were eligible to vote. Harris also openly supported Bush team lawyers, and antagonized Gore team lawyers. Combined with the irregularities in the balloting, counting, and recounting, and possible barriers to voters in some counties in both heavily Democrat leaning counties, and Republican ones in the panhandle, and there is a lot of room for either side to claim it should have been the true winner, because a complete recount, with consistent procedures, was prevented by state officials, and the Supreme Court.
This is why voter ID laws, combined with large purges of rolls immediately prior to the election is a suspect behaviour – making it difficult for falsely purged voters to be reinstated, or to get required ID’s.

They all get in a shot, and they’re all right!
