Florida & Michigan primaries

I don't understand those who are arguing that the democrats have no rules and that the republicans do!

Of course both have rules, but rules can be changed! I don't even know who might benefit from allowing those two states' delegates to vote at the convention, but if the creator of the rules wants to change the rules, it is no one else's business!

Anyway the only ones to be punished are the voters (citizens) themselves, and that won't do.

All this chatter is just to throw mud.

They may actually have to work at this years democratic convention!

Better than the republican smoke-filled rooms

Now this is something minor. In my country we have people running it lik e they like. Our laws are changed every week because they have some business to do and the laws won`t let them. Then they change them real easy and there goes business. Now this is something you should talk about.

If the Hildebeast gets her way there will be either an illegal counting of the Florida and Michigan votes or another primary election - $20million is the cost in FL, probably the same in Michigan.

So, who pays for the redoing of the primary? The Dems? State or National Party? Both say no. The state's taxpayers? Their reps and governors say no. The candidates? No, they are Dems, they use OPM.

How about asking the Republicans in Florida and Michigan to pay for the Democratic Primary Redo? I know it sounds stupid, but why not? Think about it - the Dems are going to win the White House for sure and probably the House and maybe the Senate, so after that, all the Republican's (meaning normal hard-working people who are not welfare parasites or head-in-the-clouds do-gooders) will be giving at least 50% of their earnings to the Dems in Washington for redistribution anyway, so why not just get it going to them earlier?

Nobody worries about no stinkin money no more. Just add it to the nine trillion Bush has blown (thats: $9,000,000,000,000)

Do you realize how long the fussing will go on after the general election if two of our biggest states weren't allowed to help pick one of the major candidates? It makes absolutely no sense.

It will be worse than the US Supremes overruling a state matter to elect Bush!!!! See? I haven't forgotten that abuse of states rights?

I think a couple of rich dudes have already volunteered to pay for the redo if you are afraid it will raise your taxes.

I suspect if it were a republican thing that you would be raising hell in the other direction!

I think I'll just give up right now. Quit my job, get in debt and become a Democrat. Free health care, mortgage bailout, other welfare. Cheaper and easier than working and waiting for retirement and being productive.

simply by having endured these two terms of GWB & Cheneybot.

Robert Morgan - your thoughts sound great but you've been around for a very long time, so you know it hasn't been just one, single party who is responsible for anything close to your ramblings. It's more because of the dimwitted Democrats & Replubicans from both sides - not just one party!
