    No....Unlike, Bush....Obama got more votes than Romney. That's what happens when you actually count the votes.

    Oh, if they'd have only gotten the ballots from trunks of precinct captains earlier....

    Every post election independent recount conducted in Florida still had Bush winning. The only scenario in which Gore might have won is if they only recounted Palm Beach, Broward and Dade county which is all the Gore wanted recounted. Thats actually what the USSC stopped, it was a limited recount only in Democrat strongholds, not statewide.

    The only scenario that Gore would have won would have been if the most lenient standard was used for counting disputed ballot. But that could have actually boosted Bush's numbers if the recount was statewide.

    By any method that Gore asked for, he still lost Florida. Unless of course you are posting from Fantasyland.

    Correct. When the actual Florida election law was followed Bush consistantly won. The abortion that was happening in Florida is that it became a carnival with attempted manual review/interpretation of who a particular ballot was "intended/meant" for. The laws were pretty explicit. How to test a voting machine. How many times to run a ballot through before deeming as void. And as you noted, the procedure for statewide recounts. Not precinct by precinct "chad parties".

    The Supreme Court did the correct thing. They took province over the Florida SC and stopped the madness...

    Actually....you are incorrect. Although we will never know for sure, most independent studies showed that if all of the votes would have been counted, Gore would have won Florida and thus the election.
