After a bit of a flurry of activity, the inevitable has overcome the Democrats and the left. This was not a matter of 600 or so votes hanging by a chad in Florida. This required the overturning of the results in three states in which thousands of votes would have had to be reversed, and thousands more overlooked ballots suddenly discovered sitting in a warehouse. It must have been decided that no good could come of it, so the process has now been brought to an end. Even Obama has called a halt, which makes me suspicious but this is what he has said: White House insists hackers didn’t sway election, even as recount begins.
The Obama administration said it has seen no evidence of hackers tampering with the 2016 presidential election, even as recount proceedings began in Wisconsin.
“We stand behind our election results, which accurately reflect the will of the American people,” a senior administration official told POLITICO late Friday.
“The federal government did not observe any increased level of malicious cyber activity aimed at disrupting our electoral process on election day,” the official added. “We believe our elections were free and fair from a cybersecurity perspective.”
There are, of course, other perspectives besides cybersecurity, such as illegal voting, voting by illegals and the rest, which the Democrats would prefer left undisturbed for use another day. Even so, it’s been something of a mess, pretty well as you might expect from the Democrat side.
I also think that the presence of Donald Trump on the other side suggested that there would be zero tolerance for any messing about. Trump is non-standard-issue Republican in every way, and the most important way may be that he really does intend to prevail in every encounter. He will not go down without a fight, an attitude I could not imagine Romney, for example, taking.
So bless my soul, President Trump it will be. We have been saved from Hillary so it’s all benefit from here. And then, he might even do what he promised, and how extraordinary that would be as well.
