    More fantasy on your part: FactCheck.org : The Florida Recount of 2000. This confirms what I wrote about Gore losing because he tried to have ballots within Florida being held to varying standards based upon how much it would have presumably helped him. Having different standards in a state election is a clear violation of the 14th Amendment. That's what the Supreme Court decided.

    You may not like that fact, but it is the fact. Now you can finally ask for your refund to the Albert A Gore Jr. Presidential Library Foundation.

    "According to a massive months-long study commissioned by eight news organizations in 2001, George W. Bush probably still would have won even if the U.S. Supreme Court had allowed a limited statewide recount to go forward as ordered by Florida’s highest court.

    Bush also probably would have won had the state conducted the limited recount of only four heavily Democratic counties that Al Gore asked for, the study found."
    Add to that the fact that Bush won the initial vote, the Florida machine recount vote, the vote after all absentee ballots were counted, the vote after the initial Florida Supreme Court recount deadline expired, and was ahead in the extended recount up until halted by the Supreme Court - and it becomes quite clear how absurd your "Gore won the election" claim is.

    Nice cafeteria selection there. Go back and reread what I wrote and what you wrote. The bottom line is that if the recounts were limited, then Yes, Gore probably would not have prevailed...however, if an actual recount of all the votes were done, Gore likely would have won the election.

    GWB's "election" will always have an asterisk by it in the annuals of history....and this nation paid dearly for the SCOTUS interfering in our election process which is why O'Connor regrets her decision in that case.

    In other words, "if a recount of the sort that nobody asked for - and which used methods deemed unconstitutional by a 7-2 vote of the SCOTUS - been carried out, Gore might have overcome Bush by 60-120 votes out of 6 million, according to one study."

    Thanks for playing, now run along.

    Not to mention their inability to see what a crook and scumbag ALGORE was and has become. He duped more than a few unsuspecting Leftists out a millions.

    LOL.....wow. I love your selectivity. The reality is.....if the SCOTUS had not gotten involved and Gore would have been able to trigger a recount of the entire state, the fiasco known as GWB most likely would have never happened. Which is why O'Connor's regret about the Court appointing a President speaks volumes. Hopefully it is a lesson that we won't repeat in the future. Let the Constitutional process play out...there was no need to rush to judgement and the consequences speak for themselves.
