At least Kucinich is consistent in his paranoia

We do not wish to harm your peopleCongressman Dennis Kucinich wants a recount in New Hampshire because, in his words, there are:

“serious and credible reports, allegations and rumors” about the integrity of Tuesday results.

What, does he think he made it to 2 percent instead of just not quite 2 percent?

We’ve said before that Kucinich was fast becoming the Pat Paulson of the Democrats, but that may not be the most accurate comparison.  The correct way to put it may well be that he’s becoming the next Lyndon LaRouche, living a portion of his life off of the taxpayer’s matching funds.

    Oh, c’mon! When any person who may have ever challenged treasonous Republican bat squeeze that you guys promote, he immediately gets a tin hat? That should be a door prize at your next first friday, TIN HATS FOR EVERYONE!!!! YEAH!YEAH!YEAH!
    Please, for one second of your time, tell me how diebold’s machines are flawless? Dennis has continually supported values that protect all of our voting rights, not the standards that are spoon fed for us. There are problems, and I suggest you look no further than Drudge (oh my I had to use that) and Zogby, and the precision that those two have had, and actual results. It’s all a scam, and you know it. Do you want another 2000?2004?, well maybe you do. It appears that cheating is an ethic Republicans embrace. http://www.dennis4president.com/go/homepage-items/the-polls-you-may-have-missed/

    It might have something to do with the fact that AP reported in Hooksett County where Hillary had her election night HQ she came in with 1100 votes, Kucinich 812 and directly below him on the AP/Politico chart Obama with 0. It stayed that way for about 15 minutes until somebody either caught it or complained and it accounted for Obama’s drop to 34% from about 8pm to 8:15. They switched it to Obama 812, Kucinich 19.

    But this is more likely the reason. LHS Associates run NH’s and virtually all of New England’s elections. I say virtually because they’ve been banned in CT. 80% of the ballots in NH are counted on Diebold (now Premier) optiscan tabulators. Numerous studies made for Sec. of States from CA, OH, and FL, by Princeton University, and reports, the latest of which is in last week’s NY Times magazine section show all these machines not just Diebold’s, all electronic tabulators and DREs (touchscreens) to be insider vote fraud enabling junk.

    It would take one person with a memory card tainted by a untraceable program a high school kid could write a few minutes access to corrupt one of these tabulating machines and change the outcome at an entire polling place to any numbers he or she wants. Did that happen? I don’t know. I can tell you when Bradblog guest blogger Dori Smith asked Ken Hajjar the Director of Sales and Marketing for LHS Associates, the company that runs virtually all of New England’s elections including 80% of NH’s, “about his admission that he and his company regularly replace voting machine memory cards (the keys to the kingdom!) at will, in the middle of elections, he told her, “I mean, I don’t pay attention to every little law.”“

    Maybe all the polling was wrong, even Obama’s that had him ahead by 14 on election day and Hillary’s that had him ahead by 11. Maybe the unadjusted exit polling that showed him winning was way off base. Maybe you’d rather not think about it because you got the results you wanted.

    Kucinich’s challenge is an opportunity, maybe the last one we’ll have before November to discredit faith based vote counts on these machines. He probably doesn’t have enough money to do a thorough job and everybody who gives a damn about an honest election in November ought to be throwing some cash his way.

    Trying to fit Kucinich for a tinfoil hat in this case is disgusting. These machines are endangering our democracy. Say what you want about him you’re not going to put the toothpaste back in the tube. He’s made his challenge and all of Democrat, Republican, or none of the above ought to help him do what’s right for the country

    Thank you, I have been keeping up with Brad Friedman’s efforts as well. Without any sour humor and tin hats, after listening to Dennis this morning. I continue to say, no matter what side of the aisle we sit, the integrity of our vote is at stake. Republicans and Democrats should be grateful Dennis is around.

    I am afraid I have to agree with you. I am a progressive leftist who is supposed to agree with Kucinich’s policies. But it’s not fair to ignore his wackiness, his perpetual, delusional, self-promotional campaigning, not to mention his flip-flop from being Santorum-level pro-life to supposedly pro-choice.

    Now this “demanding a recount” BS. He gets two percent in a primary where the results are pretty clear, and now he stormed to center stage and demands a recount. In a party primary. For god’s sake, Ohio, it’s time to get this guy out of Congress. When was the last time he actually did something for his constituents?

    Wageslave, I don’t believe you are progressive or a leftist and you certainly are no patriot.

    Kucinich is calling for a recount now not because he has a chance in hell to win anything for himself, but because the system has been corrupted and needs to be fixed. See all the posts above for the details of the latest Diebold(Premier, whatever)-inspired nightmare. We’ve got to get some measure of accountablity back into the vote counting process.

    Didn’t Kucinich learn in 2004, like the rest of us Americans, that looking into voting irregularities is something both sides of the aisle agree should never, ever happen?

    The point of candidates like Kucinich, Paul and the like is to raise the uncomfortable questions the top tier would rather ignore. Ridiculing them is part of the effort to sweep them under the rug. If we really did give their ideas a fair hearing, some of what they advocate would actually rise to the forefront much to the dismay of those in power. In the long run their individual personalities or histories might still make most people wary of their ultimate fitness for leadership, but the same can be said of some of the front runners in both parties. This country has a problem with the fairness of elections, even if it is only a suspicion. For us to be able to move forward this needs to be aired and addressed. This is the purpose Kucinich serves in this case as, in many instances, the officials in charge have not been part of the solution and require a kick in the pants.

    Hey Robbie!

    It gets worse when you think about the following. It was recently revealed in some ersatz “Poll” (or if you’re Robbie, pole) that Repubs have more sex on a weekly (or weakly) basis them Dems. Not if you eliminate farm animals!

    Our problem isn’t with what losers run for President, anyone born here, 35 and not a felon is free to, our problem comes in when our tax dollars are given to them so they can travel the country on our dime (or live on our dime, like LaRouche) without having a chance of victory.

    We’re against any public money going towards elections, but have a particular problem where money, our money, is being wasted on the vanity of someone who could only come in 4th in a 2 person race.

    End federal matching funds.

    Lemme see, a handful a reason from some pretty reasonable people. Then a joke that belongs somewhere else. Then a moderator who evidently is okay with questionable elections. I have had with the Floridas and Ohios, I would not want to win that way. We need it made clear that as Americans, Dammit, my vote better be counted the exact way I cast it! Clearly, some may think Dennis is doing this to promote himself, maybe, but if he achieves the discovery of irregularties or fraud then we need to know. But those in the crowd that beleives this is ok, are the ones ok with voter caging,disinfranchisig, etc.

    Well, now a recount has been granted and will be paid for by Dennis Kucinich. We’ll see what the outcome is. Oddly though, with a debate coming up on the 15th, which Dennis was invited to yesterday, and dis-invited to on the same day he is granted a recount. Peculiar, isn’t it? Serge makes a good point above, that Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul scare the crap out of top tier candidates. They are willing and able to answer difficult questions, and if asked if Dennis prefers “diamonds or pearls?”, I would imagine his answer would be “I prefer an honest and truthful debate”. Take care!

    Message for the Dude
    I beleive over the summer you covered the “ooops the mic was on?” gaffe of Clinton and Edwards. Is there a youtube clip on that you know of? I cannot find one, and I am not backing down on this. I know you love going after hillary, and you may find a strange ally if something is found out in NH. Peace!

  16. January 12, 2008 at 12:29 am

    Thanks I did find one. It certainly is cause for concern. See Liberals and Conservatives can get along. Cheers!
