    What if's. I don't know, I was just glad after what seemed like a thousand recounts it was over. On the other hand if the Media early in the night hadn't announced Florida had gone to Gore an hour before the polls closed in the Republican rich panhandle of Florida...who knows how many votes that cost Bush? People staying home because they thought the election was over.

    Tons of what if's on both sides. What I did learn from all of that, if you do not like either candidate for president and was going to leave you ballot blank refusing to vote for either, DON'T. Watching the recounts with all those ballots which skipped the president office, saying this person voted for 10 Republicans and 5 Democrats so he meant to vote for Bush or vice versa, for Gore. That was crazy, they probably meant not to vote for either one.

    So in my opinion, the recounts were not honest either. For me the fact Gore failed to carry his home state, if he did Florida would not have meant squat. That was where he lost, not Florida. The people that knew him best opted for someone else. I really do not know if Gore would have been a better president than Bush, that is pure speculation. I suppose what one thinks there boils down partisan lines.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I voted against Gore. Remember the phone calls and Garry Mauro? That's why.

    I voted for George W. Bush, and I'm not ashamed to say that. I thought he was the best man for the job.

    They're both morons, do you really like Bush?

    That's the feel I'm getting from you.

    Just as how I feel Pbrauer wanted the "GReen freak" (who flew in a personal jet that coughed out tons of **** in the air) moron to win.

    And therein lies the crux of the problem...
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    The nice thing about this country is that we're free to vote for the person we think is the best person for the job. I don't see this as a problem.

    Re: George W Bush Versus Al Gore

    I voted for W. in both of his races.

    If I had to do it again I'd do the same thing.

    I voted for Obama in 2008 and Gary Johnson in 2012.

    I'd vote the same way in those elections, too, if I got a do-over.

    I don't think any of them (Bush, Gore, Kerry, Obama, McCain, Romney, Johnson) were strong candidates but I think I picked the lesser of the evils in every case.

    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    Re: George W Bush Versus Al Gore

    I have never been a fan of Gore, but I can't imagine how on earth his presidency could have been worse than Bush's. By any measure, President Bush had the most failed presidency in generations. You would have to go back to at least Herbert Hoover to find a president with a worse economic record and I don't know how far back you would have to go to find one with a more disastrous foreign policy.

    That said, I am pretty sure Al Gore would have been a one term president. He is just so damn unlikable.

    The problem would be the earlier statement. Bush was an unparalleled disaster. Everyone should regret their vote.
