    it's kinda like how PJABBER claims--and fundamentally believes--that R&R are the true leaders of this country, and have been effectively leading it for the last ~year. (yes, PJABBER believe this--or so he says to)


    Same with Obama in 08. He was the leader since 07....which works perfectly, really, to explain the republican story about our current economic problems.


    :hmm:

    They tried voting here in Manassas in 2008 but were run off.
    So ACTUALLY voting? No proof yet.

    Good. That is where a lot of the voting fraud will be happening, especially in the Latino neighborhoods. Good for these poll watchers. I would hope that the Democrats would have as many poll watchers out in the more red areas.

    Look who the person you quoted and what was said. You were last in line. Yes boys and girls, Obamas DOJ had a helpful hand in that.

    The Huffington Post is about as credible as the Weekly World News.

    I watched the video in the ABC News link. I must say that the old white guy and the elderly grandma scared me. I wouldn't vote there.

    Only in the mind of conservatives. Also the 2 NBPs were in a district that was already 90% Dem.

    1) HuffPo, might as well link to Kucinich's blog
    2) I'm an uncertain how some silly white tea baggers will scare black people in black neighborhood.

    So, Libs had no problem with UN observers, but have issues with American observers. Got it.

    When these partisan observers are only monitoring minority locations and sending threatening letters to them, it becomes an issue.

    That sucks. You mean you don't even get the cool little red, white and blue sticker that says
    I VOTED!

    One of my favorite things to do is go down and vote on election day and then head home, drink beer, eat good BBQ and watch returns.

    Ovila Quad beer this year.

    Oooh, I love me some Belgian style beer. I did not know Sierra Nevada partnered with some monks, I will have to keep my eye out for that.

    Have you ever enjoyed a Piraat? One of my favorites, and a go-to when I want to introduce someone to the joys of Belgians. Very drinkable, lovely coloring, but it really packs a punch.

    edit: Isn't nice those east coast media assholes don't announce the winners anymore before us on the best coast even get off work or vote? I forget what election year was the tipping point.

    Obviously you didn't look at his links to back up the claim that Obama had a justice department in 2008.

    I'm sure he meant it as a joke because it's a ridiculous assertion if he didn't.

    I don't need to look at the links he posted. His entire body of work here dwarfs any brain cramp he may have had in making that post you decided made him a "fucking idiot".

    Well then you are a fucking idiot and shouldn't respond to posts you know nothing about.


    Anyone else here at anandtech that you put on a pedestal and won't question?

    I have respect for those who are not partisan drones, and call it like it is regardless of party or ideology. There are very few of them around, that's all. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Calm the *** down. Your posts seem to be full of anger, it is hard to take them seriously when you are obviously just venting your frustrations with life at the internet. Chill dude. :thumbsup:
