Did you actually say, "George Bush refusing to accept Al Gore's win?"

Al Gore certainly came close.

But, as the old saying goes, close counts only in horseshoes and hand grenades.

George Bush didn't suffer from Al Gore's win. THE GOP refused to allow the outcome to be determined by election officials attempts to change the results by the divine intuition of utilizing determination of a voter's actual intent by a view, a reading as it were, of the hanging chads on paper ballots.

We all know it would have been more acceptable, logical, and pragmatic, to read some tea leaves.

It's really not about the legal vote process anymore. If, in the unlikely chance, Trump wins by a landslide, there will quite possibly still be riots in the major cities.
The Al Gore challenge was legit....

Bush won that election by 537 votes out of 6 million in the state his brother was the governor of, Florida....

If Trump lost this next general election by something that small, he would raise hell and high water too....."Believe me".....

Al Gore selectively called for recounts in counties where he thought he could harvest enough additional votes to win. No interest in a legitimate tabulation of the Florida statewide vote.

Multiple independent recounts of the ballots conducted later declared Bush the winner. Unfortunately for Gore Democrats weren't able to "discover" additional ballots like they did for Al Franken.

Yes GW Bush did win the closest election of all time in one state where they threw out thousands of butterfly ballots because they were not filled out correctly....

Thousands discarded vs. 537 for a winning total out of 6 million was a 100% legit challenge every day and twice on Sundays.....

Like I said before, if Trump loses that close this November, do you think he will challenge it....?

Hell, his ilk thinks any loss would be a fixed election from the get go....

Al Gore's challenge was legit. No argument there from me.

My argument is with the recount methodology of inferring what the voter really wanted to do by an intuitive magical view of the ballot. Johnny Carson's KARNAC routine on steroids. Doesn't belong in the process.

At least in this country.

You are joking about Democrats being the party of law and order and supporting the Constitution. After nearly 2 months of radical Leftist thugs violently rioting in Portland Democrat after Democrat berated AG Barr for daring to oppose the rampant destruction perpetrated by the fascist mob. But Democrats don't stop there, support for defunding the police placing the populace at the mercy of the mob is universal among Democrat elites.

Democrats perverted the Federal justice and intelligence agencies for the KGB like persecution of political opponents. They staged a Starr chamber impeachment inquiry following by a sham impeachment trial. Now they are extending their attack on Constitutional rights to Second amendment advocates.

Democrats have devolved into the radical socialist party where the ends justify the means.
