Angry Rhetoric

NPR's Pam Fessler looks at Republican rhetoric in the wake of last night's Florida Supreme Court's ruling. Supporters of George W. Bush have been issuing statements that charge that Al Gore will do anything to win. The court order required state officials to accept recounted votes that are reported after the state's official deadline. Many of the complaints liken Gore to President Clinton and his impeachment troubles. The Bush camp is appealing Florida's Supreme Court ruling to the US Supreme Court.
