Carter keeps piling it up

From the BBC: Carter fears Florida vote trouble.

Let's see.

Mr Carter, a veteran observer of polls worldwide, also accused Florida's top election official of "bias".

He accused Florida Secretary of State Glenda Hood, a Republican, of trying to get the name of independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader included on the state ballot, knowing he might divert Democrat votes.

And it ends with this beauty:

Mr Carter said Florida Governor Jeb Bush - brother of the president - had "taken no steps to correct these departures from principles of fair and equal treatment or to prevent them in the future".

"It is unconscionable to perpetuate fraudulent or biased electoral practices in any nation," he added.

"With reforms unlikely at this late stage of the election, perhaps the only recourse will be to focus maximum public scrutiny on the suspicious process in Florida."

Let's see if I got this right Mr. Carter. What is good for Venezuela is not good for Florida? And I am not talking of the Venezuelan result of August 15, but of all the irregularities ALREADY presented before August 15. Tu use your own words: fraudulent or biased electoral practices. But I guess we are still "indios".

President Carter, you would be well advised to do yourself a favor: forget about Venezuela. Do not visit us anymore. Stick to Florida from now on. And make sure that the word Venezuela never comes up in conversation if you want people to listen to you there.

This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post,> in particular if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen once.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
