The Obama administration has defended the integrity of the presidential election despite fears of Russia attempting to undermine the vote.
As previously noted here, Russia couldn't affect the vote-count even if they had wanted to because the tabulators are not connected to the Internet, but Fidel-loving also-ran Stein is certain that there was something fishy going on. What's especially scary about her is that she was able to garner as much as 1% of the vote. Amusingly, Trump was being urged to accept the outcome of the election when complacent Leftists thought they had it in the bag - but when that turned out not to be the case, they suddenly can't take their own advice.
That seems to be a common malady among them; here in the Pacific Northwest, Democratics in Washington state held three recounts after a Republican was elected governor. Democratic candidate Christine Gregoire ended up being declared governor after the third recount as ballots cast in her favor kept turning up after having mysteriously gone missing - it was truly amazing, the way they somehow kept "finding" more votes, but then she, too, had been considered a shoo-in. The shock and dismay when it appeared that the Republican had won was palpable.
So they're just doing what they always do. It's interesting that the Obama administration is calling it unnecessary.
Clintonworld isn't pushing for recounts because the "optics" of attempting to overturn the election results would be bad, which is why they're instead cheering on the crazy "doctor" Stein to get the dirty work done for them.
There seems to be a rift between the Obamas and Clintonworld; not only in terms of the recounts but in terms of the election itself:
“You need to concede,” Obama told his former secretary of State as she, her family, and her top aides continued to watch results trickle in from the key Rust Belt states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.
She finally did, but Obama's call really irked a lot of the folks in the Clintonworld orbit.
So why all the rancor? The reason why Pantsuit lost the electoral college seems pretty clear: she was always going to be president because it was her turn. DNC arranged her nomination, and one of her first orders of business was to lie to the American public yet again: "I will not get down in the mud with them (Republicans)," she solemnly intoned, before immediately leaping in, flinging and slinging. It was supposed to be a royal coronation, but a lot of people simply didn't trust the presumptive queen, whom they perceived as more of the same.
One suspects that people are awakening to the fact that the Founders never envisioned the rise of life-long politicians, and having experienced firsthand what those have wrought over the years, lifers like Pantsuit and Jeb! are not held in particularly high regard. This is a fact that none of the lifers recognized, and a problem that was compounded when Pantsuit, in the process of slinging more mud, famously claimed that she placed over half of her opponent's supporters into "my basket of deplorables". She failed to recognize the fact that most of the Americans she tossed into her basket have had just about enough of lifer politicians and their lies and excuses.
That line, perhaps more than anything else, sealed the case against her. Oh, she tried to "walk it back", but it was too late.
Of course, it was by no means the only tone-deaf comment she offered; what did she think would happen when she glowing stated that when she was elected, they were going to put a whole lot of coal miners out of work? Sorry, Pantsuit - you've nobody to blame but yourself.
