George W. Bush would have won even if the Supreme Court had allowed the statewide manual recount that the Florida court had ordered to go forward.
I’m posting this link, because I’ve heard liberals and Democrats say a thousand times that Al Gore won the election.
A group of liberal newspapers, including the nations “paper of record” (the NYTimes), conducted a ballot recount, and found that Bush won the Florida vote, and therefore the election.
The Supreme Court’s decision was irrelevant. Bush won, fair and square, even by the standards of the liberal press.
Yet, I imagine that the myth will not die, and I will hear a thousand more times how Bush was “selected, not elected”. Because some people just can’t handle the truth.
