The paper ran the text of the law that GWB signed in Texas that prefers manual recounts to electronic recounts. It's quite clear.
Now, either GWB doesn't read the laws he signs, or he's willing to cast aspersions on the accuracy of manual recounts for no more reason than that he's afraid to lose the election -- and thereby undermine public confidence in the electoral process and thus WHOEVER wins the election.
Or he's just trying to delay things until the deadline which is being enforced by one of his own.
Either way, he's playing a game of "heads I win, tails you lose," and that's not something that I can respect.
Bring on the courts! At least judges ATTEMPT to be impartial!
