Gore Or Bush Essay, Research Paper
Gore or Bush
Should Al Gore or George Bush be the president of the United States. Bush is the
man that should and will fill the position. Out of all the candidates Bush stands out as the
strongest stingiest leader. George Bush is the best man for the job. Bush also rightfully
won the White House. In reference to the recounts, they should not even be considered.
The only way Gore could win the job was with a court ruling. Even if Al Gore were to
take office, it would go against the law of the land, the Constitution.
The office of the presidency takes a strong leader not a sore loser that doesn?t
know when he has been beaten. George Bush should be the next president of the United
States because he is the stronger leader of the two. He is intelligent, cunning, and always
has his wits about him. Bush is not a coward from Washington who hides behind Slick
Willie and plays politics to watch his back. Bush has already had the experience at
running Texas which is as big as most countries. In football which quarterback would be
right for the starting job, a back up or another quarterback from another team. If you
want a leader, then go with a starter not a backup.
Bush wins the presidency, wait one moment Gore wants a recount, then again and
again. The first recounts were needed just in case something was wrong, but after the
second recount it started to be questionable. Just because there were some problems with
the ballots doesn?t mean that you need to go through Florida county by county trying to
find votes. The butterfly ballets should not have been used but counties used this ballot
all over the country. Al Gore complains that the ballots are not fair and believes that he
won Florida. Over two million ballets across America have been thrown out, so why just
recount Florida if you are so worried about being fai?. Al Gore needs to do what is right
for the country and give his secession speech again. What kind of a president would Gore
be if he said something and then tried to take it back? If he keeps this up, he will be going
against the Constitution.
Since Florida has problems with counting ballets, Al Gore took his case to the
court. He pleaded time and time again for recounts and the court granted it. When he
begged for hand recounts people started to question the integrity of these hand counts, the
court allowed it. Even after all the recounts he still didn?t have enough votes to win. He
finally lost a court case, the certification of Florida vote. This news should of sent George
Bush packing for the White House but no. He knows what kind of man Gore is so he
waited for those five little words and sure enough he heard them. I?m taking this to court.
So why is Gore going back to the courts? The courts can not make him president. If they
did it would be going against the constitution. No one will allow a court to pick the
president, especially win the system we have been using since seventeenth century
chooses one man while the court chooses another.
What?s done is done. Gore should give his concession speech so people can forget
about this and move on. Why turn the White House into a soap opera and start to become
hated when you could wait four years are even get a seat in the senate. Gore fought a hard
battle but George W. was the better man unless the courts rule other wise. This could
bring out amendments and maybe even call for a complete reconstruction of the
constitution. This country defiantly doesn?t need that
