Earlier today there was a press conference in Las Vegas regarding one or more lawsuits to be filed regarding dead people voting, people who don’t live in Clark County voting in Clark County, and they had an older woman with them who said that when she went to vote she and her roommate were told that they had already voted. She said someone had taken their mail-in ballots and used them. Nevada mailed ballots to everyone whether they asked for one, or not.
After the press conference, David Asman on Fox News was commenting that they were making a lot of allegations but providing no proof at the press conference and that they should have to the journalists. That giving the journalists the proof was necessary. That the journalists were the fact-checkers.
Yes, David. Journalists are fact-checkers. Journalists should go and check the facts as given to them. Not just demand proof at a press conference — which doesn’t seem to happen at all press conferences — but go and independently check the facts as given.
Go and find out if there are instances of the “dead” voting. Go and find out if people who no longer reside in Clark County are recorded as having voted in Clark County. Go and find out if people were turned away at the polls as having already voted when they hadn’t.
THAT is fact-checking, not just getting something from the people who are holding the press conference.
Chris Christie and Jeb Bush were the two “winners” of the ” **** LEAST LIKE **** to see as our 2016 nominee ”
PS: As a side note, want to see something scary?
In 2008, the least wanted candidates for bloggers were…John McCain and Ron Paul.
In 2012, the least wanted candidates for bloggers were…Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.
So, going by those results, Chris Christie and Jeb Bush would have to be considered the early favorites for 2016 based on the fact that conservative bloggers don’t want either of them as a nominee.
[insert Republican candidate name] has voted for things Republicans like. [insert Republican candidate name] votes for conservative things. Don’t vote for [insert Republican candidate name]! [insert Republican candidate name] will vote for things Republicans and conservatives care about!
This message brought to you by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
Well duh. Do they think they’ll sway any voters? Some people might think that the a Republican candidate voting in that manner is a feature, not a bug. If the candidate has been voting for big government this might be a bug, but otherwise…
