They think by noon, they will know whether the ballot stuffing worked in OH.

Wonder who will make Kerry's concession statement? Certainly not Kerry. Edwards? McAuliffe? Hillary?

This whole thing reminds me of the ending scene in "Happy Gilmore" where Shooter McGavin, not accepting that he lost, screams "NO!!!! NO!!!!!," grabs the gold jacket and tries to run away with it.

WHY allow Kerry to define the election results his way? Take the offense, claim Ohio and NM or Iowa, and move this puppy forward, imho.

Even George Stephanopolus on ABC said that the Dems will concede in a few hours. He pointed to the popular vote among some other things and said that the Dems will only hurt themselves if they try to push this.

It's looking good.

FNC just said the Ohio SOS stated there was only 135,000 provisional ballots, impossible for Kerry to win. Go away Kerry....

I'm afraid that the Dems are simply incapable of admitting defeat here - even utter, complete and ignominious defeat like this one. If they don't make good on their threats to drag this out as long as possible, I'll be pleasantly surprised. Is the charming Mrs. Breck Girl getting the riots started?

The longer they stretch it out, the more people are reminded that the Dems are putting us through this. People understood when it was 500 votes in FL. They won't understand when it is 130k votes in OH.

Mrs. Breck is teaming up with Michael Moore and Linda Ronstadt on a "Sit On The Republicans Till They Croak" tour...

The Dems should be doing damage control now, if they wish to still have a shot at 2008. Methinks Hillary and Bubba would be on the phone with the Kerry campaign by now.

Anyone else picking up on what I think will be the MSM/Dem spin on this Bush victory? It sounds to me like they are really trying to play up how Bush used issues like homosexual "marriage", and abortion to get out the "white, Evangelical Christian" vote, and that this "was a very divisive strategy."

Anyone else think this is the route the Dem/MSM goons will use?

I bet they tuck their tales and hide for a while. It's hard to spin this one other than the usual "Clearly, the American people weren't completely for Bush as you can tell from the lack of a landslide".

Whatever happened to "but he won the popular vote"?

This whole affair, if it is carried to the extreme they might take it to, will only serve to showcase the ethical barrenness of the Democratic party.

What did Gore win the popular vote by, like 40k votes? Bush won by 4 million!

Russert also said that Kerry would be within his rights to contest the election. Wonder if he would be saying this if the shoe were on the other foot.

President Bush has won this election, 286 EV to 252 EV. He has taken 51.22% of the national popular vote.

The only close state of the bunch is WI and Bush would concede that, even though Kerry has a very small lead, because Bush has taken NV, NM, and IA (why havent the news channels called these states?).

Anyone who can't accept that is just fooling themselves.

I heard this exact same phrase used during the 2000 Sore Loserman debacle. When will the country learn that the dims don't care if they hurt the country. They hate this country, and for every minute that skerry fails to concede the more they prove that.

Bush is doing what Bush does best. He knows he has a lock on the election and, with a 140K + margin, a lock on public opinion.

He sees the dim's with a nice length of rope in their hands and he's going to let them hang themselves before he kicks their body off a cliff.

If Bush declares victory before the Dems concede, they will look awful. Pouty, little children. They have to be sweating this.

As for us:

NO SYMPATHY, NO "HEALING". FULL-TILT SCHADENFREUDE. KICK THESE BASTARDS WHILE THEY'RE DOWN. HARD.

For them (the Dems AND the MSM) to deny President Bush his just and fair victory, to fail to call it quits and proceed to drag this nation into electoral crisis is unspeakable. Unforgiveable.

No 'coming together' for me. You CREEPS.

You're right. BUSH IS DA MAN!!!
Why humiliate them a little when patience will help marginalize them even more.
