    Florida 2000. The florida supreme court says makes a ruling, I believe they said, continue recount, then the bush team, goes to supreme court of the entire u.s., and they say no re-count

    this seems like a state rights vs government rights case

    who wins?

    florida ballots were not only deciding for florida at that point, but for the whole united states, because the winner of florida would get the presidency, still i do NOT want to give my personal opinion here, i want yours

    what do you think?

    Bush still wins Florida in newspaper recount

    MIAMI, Florida (CNN) -- If a recount of Florida's disputed votes in last year's close presidential election had been allowed to proceed by the U.S. Supreme Court, Republican George W. Bush still would have won the White House, two newspapers reported Wednesday.

    The Miami Herald and USA Today conducted a comprehensive review of 64,248 "undercounted" ballots in Florida's 67 counties that ended last month.

    Their count showed that Bush's razor-thin margin of 537 votes -- certified in December by the Florida Secretary of State's office -- would have tripled to 1,665 votes if counted according to standards advocated by his Democratic rival, former Vice President Al Gore.

    "In the end, I think we probably confirmed that President Bush should have been president of the United States," said Mark Seibel, the paper's managing editor. "I think that it was worthwhile because so many people had questions about how the ballots had been handled and how the process had worked."

    Media stars refuse to concede election

    By Nicholas Stix
    web posted November 8, 2004

    White, Christian evangelicals are the Rodney Dangerfield of American politics: They don't get no respect.

    After being responsible for spearheading the re-election of their candidate, Pres. George W. Bush, instead of receiving congratulations, Christian evangelicals got to hear NBC stars denigrate their intelligence, turn their support for Pres. Bush into a negative, and even seek to nullify Pres. Bush's electoral victory.

    At noontime the day after, NBC "election anchor" and Hardball host Chris Mathews, who during the campaign had not sought to hide his hardcore Democrat partisanship, said of white Evangelicals, "they're believing, not analytical," a statement that would have applied perfectly to your typical socialist mainstream media (SMSM) journalist or tenured professor.

    Imagine if a network star said of blacks, "They're believing, not analytical." His producer would cut his mike, before the next sentence came out of his mouth. But at the networks, such disrespect for the intelligence of arguably the most powerful voting bloc in America is not only permitted, but encouraged. (Note that on some social issues, such as gay marriage, black evangelicals think the same way as their white brethren.)

    In emphasizing that 97 per cent of Republicans voted for Bush, and that Evangelicals are the GOP base, Mathews said that evangelicals "love Bush," as if that were a negative, rather than observing the real negative of the election, John Kerry's failure to inspire Democrats to vote for him.

    George W. Bush received 52 per cent of the popular vote and 286 electoral votes to John Kerry's 47 per cent and 252, respectively. The Republicans increased their control of the Senate from 51 seats to 55, and picked up four seats in the House, raising their total to 228. No incumbent president had enjoyed such re-election success since FDR in 1936.

    On NBC with Mathews, Today host Katie Couric, who rose to fame playing the sweet, all-American girl, before revealing her mean streak, refused to concede the election. That was one hour <i>after</i> Kerry had called Bush to congratulate the latter on his victory. When Mathews noted that Bush had won a majority of the popular vote, Couric parroted the Democrat party talking point, that Bush had won "A majority, not a mandate."

    People like Couric will apparently never concede a presidential election to a Republican. Not even Mathews would engage in Couric-style denial, responding, "The rule is 50 percent," a rule that does not, however, apply to Democrats.

    They keep moving the goalposts.

    So do you think the Presidency of the United States is a state issue, or a Federal issue? Looks pretty easy to me.

    Bush won. Gore demanded a recount that included late votes in a Democrat dominated county, while denying late military votes in Duval county because he know they would be Republican votes. Not to mention he tried to claim every dent, crimp, wrinkle, flyspeck, dogear and/or any other blemish on the paper that was not CLEARLY a vote for Bush as a vote for Gore; whether or not, it was near his name.

    When the recount was finished, Bush won by an even wider margin than thought originally.

    It's pretty cut-n-dried who was trying to do the stealing for anyone except Democrats and/or Bush-haters in denial.

    Yep, that sums it up. Check out USA today or NY Times and they'll tell you the same thing.

    Interesting. You must have had them in invisible mode, because i didn't see them.
