Uhh, didn't Al Gore concede shortly after they ordered the recount stopped.
"For the sake of our unity as a people and the strength of our democracy, I offer my concession."
I remember being disappointed that he didn't fight harder.
And notice that Trump doesn't say that "together we'll cure what ails us and make America great again." He says: "I will make America great again."
That combined with his nods to Putin as a strong leader should be sounding alarm bells on the republican side of the aisle that this guy may be a bit too authoritarian for a democracy.
But they've been oddly silent.
I think Chuck is also using some scaremongering here to denigrate Clinton's energy plans. She's actually far more in favor of fracking than many on the left.
And she took the time to put together a plan designed to help people who rely upon the coal industry as we inevitably migrate away from this obsolete and damaging method of energy production.
One thing Chuck didn't mention is that Trump has promised to deport the 11 million plus people who are here illegally -- a process that no matter how he did it would be incredibly ugly and could even contribute to national instability.
Chuck also says: "He will reverse the crippling economic handicaps of the past eight years and unleash resourceful American entrepreneurs and workers. This will provide good jobs and revive our economy, which is now trapped in a morass of overregulation and government bureaucracy."
Just one question: How?
Trump never really gets to that part, does he? Just rely on me -- I'm gonna fix all your problems.
Several countries have fallen for people making these kinds of promises in the past.
The results weren't pretty.
I do agree the "how dare you" has been pretty phony. But I bet if anyone else was asked that question -- any of the other republican contenders -- they'd have just said "of course." Or "As long as there were no significant irregularities."
This isn't just something drummed up by liberal media -- it was the top item on the BBC the next morning.
The world has never heard an American presidential contender come out and say the system is rigged and they may not accept the result of the election.
I can't believe James O'Keefe can possibly have any credibility left after his last hit job was debunked.
And the real Hillary is a liar and probably a crook, but she's no worse than a typical national politician.
Her foreign policy scares me a little because she's never found a war she didn't like.
She's too close to multinationals and DC insiders for my taste.
But comparing her to Trump -- my brain can't even make the leap.
We're talking about a clearly venal man with a serious petulant streak, a murky business record, and a giant chip on his shoulder when he loses. He still works up a sense of righteous indignation regarding slights on TV from 25 years ago.
And this is the guy who you want to become the most powerful man in the world?
Uhh, if Trump wasn't constantly running his mouth and otherwise working to center the story around him, the media wouldn't be obliging him.
The right has been hammering Hillary for 25 years. She's been their personal punching bag, and now, all their hard work has finally paid off and they've turned her into some evil cartoon character that actually, when you drill down through the half-truths and maybes and innuendo, doesn't exist.
The MSM can only act on the real Hillary, not the character created by the breathless bloviators on Fox news et al who have hated Hillary from day one.
I don't quite get why Trump's serial adultery is okay, but Bill Clinton's is not.
Guess it depends where you're sitting.
What a sad spectacle.
Stop posting the truth!
It really screws with the narrative they're trying to feed us.
Apparently, you haven't been very responsive to the transportation commissioner for this region where a top-tier transportation system is so critical.
As you chair the Transportation Committee, this does not impress me.
