  • Whilst I do not have the time to do an in-depth investigation into each piece, I did investigate the first few.

    This author tries to suggest that Moore is "responding" to his rebuttal of the movie, when in fact he has just gone through the points that Michael Moore has published on his site, and collected as much circumstantial evidence and half mentions of opposite opinions as he can, and put them into a single article.

    For some of the issues, as for the incorrect result projection on election night, bot

    • Do you have any real evidence to say either way, or are you speculating based on an opinion you already hold?

      Actually, the election results of 2000 were the initial reason I had no desire to see this film. We 've all been there, done that. Seems like a very pointless, boring rehash of finger pointing.

      What I find the most amusing about the whole thing, though, is the notion that declaring Gore the winner prematurely is "unbiased journalism", while declaring Bush the winner prematurely is "a right wing

      • the notion that declaring Gore the winner prematurely is "unbiased journalism", while declaring Bush the winner prematurely is "a right wing plot by Fox News to swing votes".

        Again, details. I find amusing the notion that a court decided the result in a so-called "democracy". Why not go to the polls again? Makes a farce of the whole process, really.

        I think his presidency will ultimately be judged by success or failure in Iraq.

          They did not decide the result, they ruled on a disagreement about the law in how the result should be determined. Who else should do this, if not the courts? Do you prefer rioting in the streets to determine whose interpretation of the laws is the correct one?

          We are a nation of laws. When we disagree, we look to the laws and their primary authority, the courts. This is how it has always worked, how it worked in 2000, and how it must continue to work, if laws have any meaning at all.

          Really, what would you have preferred?

          You make it sound like Iraq wasn't a complete failure already.

          It isn't. It's actually going better than I expected; I thought we would not be this close to elections for a long time. Of course, we have yet to have them, and they will likely be delayed, but we're getting closer than I thought. On the other hand, our efforts in getting the Iraqi military and police up and running are moving slower than I expected. Well, nothing's perfect.
