Since before the polls closed in Tuesday’s recall election, stompy-footed Democrats have been feverishly crying voter suppression. You’d be right to call them desperate, but Rep. Stockman has an even better explanation for their conniptions:

Nailed it.

The Stockman Smackdown continues:

    “We lost. Voter suppression!” -Democrats.
    “We lost. Voter fraud!” -Republicans.

    • Texan357

      The difference is that Democrats can never prove it – and they would if they could. If this actually happened, it would be news. Not local – full front-page splash on CNN.com type coverage.

      Republicans can point to obvious voter fraud, even though it’s reported only locally and quashed by the MSM.

      Your biggest fail is that there were a significant amount of Democrat signatures on the recalls.

      In short: Your comparison fails. Thanks for trying.

      • Texan357

        I should add that if this had actually occurred, it would have been news long before the polls closed. We wouldn’t have had to wait to hear of this nonsense from Nellie McPoodlehead.

        • kayakingfatso

          Dammit. I swallowed my gum from laughing at Nellie McPoodlehead.

          • Texan357

            Sorry about the gum! I’m glad to give back to a group of commenters who, through snark in the face of misery, have helped to keep me from despair (and even made me laugh!) while we suffer together through the Worst. Administration. Ever.
            Oh, for those who don’t get the “Nellie” reference, I think I did fairly well putting this together…

            I object. I saw the girl who played Nellie interviewed once. She was actually attacked at a grocery store by a mother and daughter who objected to how she treated “Laura”. We’ve never been lucky enough to have that DNC witch be attacked like that.

          • Texan357

            Accepted. I was only trying to tie DWS with something as evil as she. :) That’s all.

      The massive difference is that there have been numerous cases of Democrats arrested after getting caught in voter fraud. So there is proof that Democrats are committing voter fraud. But the same party benefitting from fraud are whining about make believe suppression when they can’t fraud their way into a win.

      2013-635.66%
      2011-47.99%
      2009-30.12%
      2007-48.33%
      2005-35.01%
      2003-42.57%
      2001-27.41%
      …such as they did in the 2012 in many different districts across our great land, we probably would have screamed Voter Fraud.

  • John Ansell

    It couldn’t possibly be because their voters were too stoned to remember to vote.

    • Texan357

      LOL – Very clever. :)

  • http://drudge.com snyper77

    If a person votes without ID, how is it possible to find out where that person went, or how many times that person voted? That’s why fraud is so hard to prove. {un-like 113% of returns} you still can’t find the proof needed for fraud. That’s how the Dems do it, and get away with it.

    Rep. Steve Stockman
    @SteveWorks4You
    How can @SenGiron scream “voter suppression” when turnout in 2013 was higher than in 3 of the last 6 odd year elections?

    Sorry Rep. Stockman, I have to correct you on one tiny little detail……… It is “EX” Sen Giron………. she is technically an EX Senator now………….

    • Mister A

      He was using her Twitter handle, which has yet to change (still in denial about the loss), so she could read the truth in her mentions.

      • Fire and Adjust!

        You are correct……… excuse my oversight.

        • Mister A

          All good! Give it time, and she won’t even have a Twitter account anymore (no one to do it for her).

    The suppression of common sense and ethics for the democrat party is democrat party-as-usual politics. The only thing missing is Obama demanding a recount.

      I keep waiting. There’s gotta be racial componet involved here somehow. If we can get Sharpton out there, he’ll figure out how whitey cracker repubs supressed the black vote and probably did disgusting stuff with dog crap to boot.

        Liberals are keeping the Al Sharpton show on the air. The same ones who voted the golfer and partier into the White House.

        oh trust me giron already tried that – cried racism because she’s hispanic. seems to forget there are OTHER hispanic legislators in colorado who were NOT recalled. might be because they voted AGAINST gun control laws.

  • MNWoman

    Awesome! Thank you Rep. Stockman for speaking the truth.

    I sometimes wonder about the tone of conversations that take place between the liberals and the conservatives in congress.

    I can’t imagine a discussion between DWS and Steve Stockman could be civilized. Although, I doubt they actually speak at all.

    • Stephen L. Hall

      With 435 members in the House plus 100 in the Senate, it is like a high school clicks; they never have to associate with or speak to those outside their group. When Congress started there were about 65 representatives and 26 senators; too small a group to form cliques. It has been stated that any time you get more than a hundred people in a building you begin to have problems. They can’t debate issues because there are too many of them to sit down and talk, not even counting their staffs.

      • GaryTheBrave

        Considering she wasn’t a member of Congress I’m missing your point. If the Constitution had not been amended and we still had one representative personal 25,000 the House of Representatives would have more than 1000 members.

        • Stephen L. Hall

          The point was “the tone of conversations that take place between the liberals and the conservatives in congress”, which I believe undermined by too many people making it too easy to take up sides without having to actually talk to each other. The more numerous a deliberative body becomes, the less deliberative. Too few, it becomes dominated by personalities; too many by factions.

      • Zathras11 @B5

        Clique.

        • Stephen L. Hall

          Thanks, my spelling is atrocious.

        • Stephen L. Hall

          Thanks, my spelling is atrocious.

      • Boommach

        On a group of 3 people, 2 may form a clique. Our problems stem not from cliques, but from an out of control federal government, the controlling tax code and a press that will not hold truth as being The benchmark.

        • Stephen L. Hall

          That causes many of our problems, true, But THE problem of which she was speaking was “the tone of conversation.” Which originates in people not talking with each other and deliberating on issues. Too few people in charge, as the 3 you suggest, creates different problems than “cliques.” These very problems were anticipated in the federalist papers, we, as a society, no longer teach or respect the Founding Fathers.

          • Boommach

            Ok, you are obviously right smack dab in the middle of the road. You’re a great American indeed… Can’t we all just get along…

            Sorry dude, I like leaders who know right from wrong and have the courage to Lead in the right direction. They’re damn few of them left but none of them are great compromisers. You do not compromise with evil…ever. Unless that is, if you have no spine.

          • Stephen L. Hall

            Not quite sure where you strangely jumped to the silly conclusion that I could possibly be in the middle of the road. Never advocated compromising with evil. Reason and logic are good things, try them.

          • Boommach

            You are right and I am wrong. Writing while pissed and without thinking. I apologize sir.

          • Stephen L. Hall

            That’s okay, accepted. I do not disagree with you that the current partisanship has gotten to such extreme levels that the numbers really do not matter, and I do think the differences are on a more fundamental and philosophical level than merely tone.

    This ‘voter suppression’ excuse reminds me of the scene in ‘Citizen Kane’ where Kane loses the governor election because he was caught having an affair. They have 2 front pages to go with at his newspaper, one of which proclaims his victory. They go with the other one that has ‘Fraud At Polls’ as the headline.

    Mrs Giron told CNN the vote was the result of voters being confused and lied to about the issues and not being told how to vote.

    they cry voter suppression because people had to go to a polling place instead of mailing in a ballot. i have to call bullshit on that. they had a $3,000,000 budget for advertising. they could have set up a web site telling people were to go vote. so if people were to lazy to go vote or to stupid to find the place, then maybe they shouldn’t be voting in the first place. no you didn’t lose because of voter suppression, you lost because you alienated your constituents and they had enough of your shit.

    Investigating “voter suppression” in Florida following the 2000 election, the Civil Rights Commission held over 100 hours of hearings with testimony under former Chairman Mary Frances Berry. The closest thing to an instance of voter suppression they found was a random license checkpoint a mile from a “minority” polling place – not even on the same road. That didn’t stop them from claiming it anyway, though.

    The more people realize that Democrats are all just lying scum of the earth, the fewer we’ll elect.
