Has Ari Fleischer been having a bad few weeks or what? From the Washington Post:

The president, on a cold and muddy walk through the snow, was asked about Gore’s criticisms. “Haven’t paid attention to them,” he called out. Told that Gore said Bush had no environmental record, Bush replied: “That’s why I haven’t paid attention to him.”

But the president’s advisers did respond, prompting a squabble over the disputed 2000 election. White House aides claimed the American people had rejected Gore’s environmental views in 2000.

“The vice president, in an era of peace and prosperity, made the same charges in the campaign and the voters elected President Bush,” White House press secretary Ari Fleischer told reporters.

“Refresh my memory a little bit,” Gore responded, claiming he had not intended to bring up the election. “Did a majority of the American people endorse his policies in the election? He won the election and he is our president, but he ought to be a little bit more careful about claiming that a majority of the voters endorsed his policy payoffs to polluters who pressured him to break his promises to the public.”

Just a reminder to Mr. Fleischer and our current president: you do not have a mandate from the people. The people did not, by any count of the votes, elect you. Stop pretending that they did.
