Just a wacky suggestion…because its the right thing to do?
Are you saying here that Bush should dig in his heels and fight on every front to keep any further counting occuring anywhere, under any circumstances, because he’s go the lead? Because if so, may i say it is a fortunate thing you are not one of his advisors.
I have been noting with satisfaction the turn in the tide of public opinion, which is, in the long run, going to be even more important than legalities and who ultimately becomes president. It’s going ot matter very much HOW they do so.
Gore was the one on the hot seat last week. In fact, around Friday, even I was having tiny doubts about how he was handling the situation, and just how far he dared push it. Then Bush went to court. And that was a very, very foolish move. Especially since pretty much everyone agrees that their chances of winning were almost non-existant, since they were trying to stop a lawful recount provided for in Florida statutes…by going to the Feds no less. Incredibly bad move.
Now they might win because an EXTREMELY partisan and biased SOS has decided to exercise her discretion to stop what the majority of American support, and probably hand the presidency to Bush in the process. Extra-super-duper bad move. Gore offers a recount of everybody. Bush says no. More bad moves…they seem to have an endless supply. Gonna make a bitchen prez! :rolleyes:
But hey, it doesn’t bother me. If I have to endure his nasty little smug face for the next four years, it will be a pleasure to do so as he struggles mightily to get a single thing done, watches in horror as the congress goes to the Dems, and is booted out on his ass in 4 years, having been a lame duck the whole time. not to mention 4 years of the jokes, editorials, and some outright accusations that he stole the presidency.
Then again, he’s so incredibly stupid, he probably wont’ have the sense to be ashamed.
