um...Bush didn't do anything to stop the recount. the Supreme Court did on December 12, 2000. Gore decided to be a little bitch about it and drag it on for a month. oh, and what was the total after they actually did get it all settled? Bush: 2,909,176
Did you read the articles? It said his father helped him, by getting 5 of his repulican buddies on the supreme court to put a stop to it. Gore backed down because he knew that if things kept on going, it would have caused an outbreak of riots, between Democrats & Republicans.
