Sorry tn. Im sure its gonna kill you, but there was never an issue. It was a problem with the touch screen. It happens, ya know. Your tea party email conveniently chooses to leave out FACTS. I wonder why? If you would bother to actually read the CBS story, you would have read what i copyed and pasted below.
I have to ask you. Why didnt your tea party sources, and more importantly, YOU, post the fact about the touch screen problem? At least Mr Moynihan had the integrity to do so. And even fox showed a rare decency to know that there is no story here.
Copied and pasted from the web source article that YOU provided:
The machine mistakenly showed his votes for Democrats, due to to a problem with the sensitivity of a touch screen, bringing a modern twist to Illinois storied past of alleged vote-fixing.
However, in this case, where there was smoke, there really was no fire. The machine was taken out of service and Moynihan’s initial Democratic votes were never registered.
The issue is hardly widespread, with only 5 out 35,000 voters in suburban Cook County so far experiencing any issue, Greve said.
The glitch is now getting national attention.
On Thursday morning, the Drudge Report was leading with the story with the delicous headline: “Cooked County: Republican Vote Marked Dem.”
On his Facebook page, Moynihan wrote: “Problems with voting machines are an issue everywhere, not just where I voted. It’s important to double-check all of your choices when placing your vote to make sure the machine is actually working the way that it is supposed to work. Your vote is too important to allow it to be taken away because a machine isn’t calibrated.”
And finally, its sad to say, once again, you have proven the title of this comment blog.

Here we go again...Joejuggie, what is the source of that misinformation (lie) that you posted in comment 104? todays daily email from your reliable source, the Tea Party?My goodness, its so far out there, so unbelievable, that Fox isnt even reporting it!

Jojuggie. thats not what you said in post no. 54. you specifically said this;
Obama Flies Illegal teens to Iowa. The Iowa Governor Flies Them Back TO Honduras. Yesterday Obama overruled him and sent him 124 teens, aged13-19. When the plane landed in Des Moines the airport manager called the office of the Governor. The Governor drove to the airport and chartered a United Airlines plane from Chicago. Within 8 hours all the teens were fed and loaded on that plane.
What you posted in post no.54 is a lie, regardless of where you got it. Nowhere in your response in post 68 does it say, or can be interpreted to mean what you posted in no.54.
Now, i am familiar with the email from your "reliable" source. Perhaps you consider it reliable, because it is telling you what you want to hear? You read something, and as long as it defames Obama, it gets posted. Even if it isnt true.
The title of this article is absolutely correct.

76Ytown. That business about Gov Branstad sending those kids back to Honduras never happened. What is your source for that information? Its bogus. If you google that subject like i just did, the governors own office released a statement that it is not true.
I have to say that when these mis-truths are posted here, it just proves Mr. Mollics point...

Strolling down memory lane...I wonder if georgej remembers the Savings and Loan crisis and bailout. A few clicks, some browsing, and you will read about the Keating 5, (McCain was one of them).Browse some more to see how Neal Bush, W's brother, profited handsomely with the Silverado Savings and Loan...

Young fella, the sky was falling, (soc sec out of money in thirty years), back when Ronald Reagan was president. As Alan Simpson is famously quoted as saying, I was there.Spend a few clicks and browse how the crisis was handled then.Hint: He raised taxes....

76. Are you ok with the republican insistance to cut social security and medicare? Thats what they mean when they insist on cutting "entitlements".Cutting "entitlements", meaning cutting social security and medicare, is all the republicans will bring to the table.Cutting social security, and not one penny on defense.

Boatdrunk. Just wondering where you heard these things that you are posting. "legislation to eliminate privacy on the Internet " , "meeting with the UN in March to see about infringing on your 2nd amendment rights". What you are saying is ludicrous, and i dont believe it.
Dick Morris, on the Hannity show? That guy is a lying moron. Of course, he fits right in on that network.Or are you reading the website weaselzippers? Either way, i believe you are mistaken in what you are posting.
