I see 'Tom' West has finally conceded. About time. Naturally all the 'wingnuts who've cried their eyes out in rage every time a Dem has failed to concede immediately (Gore comes principally to mind) have been standing behind their token in THIS case and acting as if he'd had the election 'stolen' from him.

That's yer basic hypocritical Rightie, though...

LOL! According to the Rightie "definition" of racism at least, huh, Jimbo?

Sorry. Your side still runs THAT particular pop-stand. Dems gave up the racist gig YEARS ago.

You can stop pretending you care about black Americans now...:)

You're lying about Gore of course, and were perfectly happy to have the Supreme Court make the Presidential decision for you when it was reTHUGlican "Dumbya" Bush being elected. If Gore HAD won Florida, of course, you'd still be crying your eyes out about that.

West lost, then demanded court decisions (NOT just recounts) be used to seize ballots for him and get a decision in his favor. He LOST.

It's OVER. Go home.

When it was time to pony up cash to pursue a recount, reality took over. So now he's gone...

Should read 'The vote count...'

Sometimes I wonder if Murphy's friends and family were posting here and everywhere else like it was their job to get their bud in office. Right age bracket. Too much of the same rhetoric on completely different news sites. Company line I guess.

That being said I hope the local government officials findout HOW there was a 20% swing in votes at one point on the recount. The rolls and voterS need to be audited. 23 1/2 months til next election.

When is Jesse Jackson Jr. going to resign? Oh, that's right, not until they agree to give him life time benefits, even though he only served one term. He learned extortion from the best, his father.

The DEMOCRATS are the ones in congress who, aside from having a black president, have people of color as senators and representatives. The Republican side of congress looks like a KLAN rally.

With the exception New Mexico, the ten poorest states all voted for Romney. So much for out of touch Mitten's nitwit theory about losing due to "gifts from Obama."
1. Mississippi
2. West Virginia
3. Arkansas
4. Kentucky
5. Alabama
6. Tennessee
7. Louisiana
8. New Mexico (Blue)
9. South Carolina
10. Oklahoma
