Ughhh! What a shitshow of a post.
You are going to make me defend that idiot Bush Jr, huh? By the Elder Gods you are an asshole.
I will address the legal aspects only since it is the only relevant part.
When it became apparent that Gore was not going to be able to close the last 300 votes he needed to carry the state of Florida, he attempted to game the system.
He chose heavily democratic precincts and demanded recounts there. That triggered a lawsuit from Bush since that violated the 14th amendment of equal protection. You do not get to cherrypick a recount that way to get a few more votes from partisan districts. It is all or nothing.
The statewide recounts began….some areas before others. It became clear that irregularities were showing up on ballots in Democratic precincts. That triggered more lawsuits that ended up in the Florida Supreme Court. That court is filled (at the time) with partisan Democratic judges who sided with Gore. That forced Bush to appeal to the supreme court.
Those appeals outside of the Florida Supreme Court destroyed Gores chances of winning at his gaming strategy, and at that point
, Gore conceded and went on to invent the internet and global warming.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
