Ya Think?

Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor now thinks maybe that whole Bush v. Gore thing (in which she voted to end the Florida recount and make Bush president) maybe wasn’t such a good idea after all:

“Maybe the court should have said, ‘We’re not going to take it, goodbye.’  Obviously the court did reach a decision and thought it had to reach a decision.  It turned out the election authorities in Florida hadn’t done a real good job there and kind of messed it up. And probably the Supreme Court added to the problem at the end of the day.”

    As a Floridian I was pissed in 2000 when the Supreme Court violated the Constitution to interfere with how we selected our state electors. There is no doubt in my mind that all 5 conservative justices knew they had no legal basis to get involved and they admitted as much in their opinion. O’Connor was the swing vote. Sorry Sandy, but your vote in Bush v Gore was a bigger disaster than Super storm Sandy that hit NY/NJ.
