    That's an excellent question - and the answer is yes. The expansion of "equal protection" favored by O'Connor and Kennedy was criticized, and the decision resting on statutory grounds (the reasoning of Rehnquist, Scalia and Thomas) was praised.

    In effect, the conservatives chided O'Connor and Kennedy for being too "moderate," rather than conservative. They invented a new right rather than just reading and applying the federal statute.

    Let me explain this to you. The Constitution is the Supreme law of the land and trumps States rights. But read the 10th Amendment, those rights not granted to the federal government are reserved to the States. Gore v. Bush was decided on Constitutional grounds, which superseded the Florida Supreme Court's decision.

    No, to the contrary. Because they are thieves they were happy that the SCOTUS stole Gore's victory from him. The country paid dearly as a result, 12 years of Bush misrule

    Hope this helps

    The simple fact that the SCOTUS even issued a ruling on what is supposed to be a states' issue makes that ruling Unconstitutional itself. The SCOTUS has no jurisdiction over state Supreme Courts in voting issues.

    No. The perfect courtroom would not "overturn" guidelines. they in simple terms rule on the constitutionality of cutting-edge ones. And, they have already governed on that one. So, CONGRESS ought to could write an different regulation to overturn it. study how the gadget on your us of a works so that you received't sound so ignorant next time.

    No SCOTUS was right on. Perhaps you suffer from Bush derangement syndrome. As a professional I am able to refer you to a good counselor.

  • The ballots were recounted a dozen times by every agency known to man (including liberal groups) Bush won everytime. Get over it. The SCOTUS did the right thing.
