And the second part is, they have been
hacking and trying hack everything in
our gov't since hacking was invented.
Why is it oh so important now, this
specific time. Answer: It's not. It's
pure political claptrap to make Trump
look illegitimate. Everybody knows this,
this is why it makes the Left look foolish.
The recount backfired, so now it's hacking.


The fact that Trump's victory will always have two HUGE asterisks next to it really bothers righties like EvenBob, as is evidenced by posts like this.

It's been said the Russians tend to be either at your throat or at your feet.

As all stereotypes, it's mostly bunk. But it does seem US conservatives take that same attitude towards the Russians.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

Not sure who the show's stupid host was, it doesn't matter if it was successful. Do you think if someone attempts a crime it only matters if it is successful?


Hmm, weren't the liberals crying about Hillary's emails not being a crime along the same lines as you are now blaming EB for here?

Trump won in a landslide and the liberals simply cannot handle it. Now they are blaming Putin. They should really be looking inward at why their party has lost so much of the white vote as that is where the reason for their wipeout lies.

Not a landslide.

Or, at least 75% of electronics were landslides, making it nothing special at all. Obama certainly wasn't given respect for his "landslides."

The difference was 2 or 3 states, and the margin of victory in those states was thin.

Let's keep things classy and follow the example of the Orange Man.

Does Trump suck Putin's dick, or has he been denied the honor?

If Hillary was attempting a crime of intentionally and knowingly sending classified emails but failed, it would be. But they didn't make that finding.

You'd have to go with the Russian hack not being intentional to compare.

I love how so many people are just running this 'it was a landslide' line that they are getting from 'their' media. And the next time they will claim they are independent thinkers too. It's -exactly- the behaviour they accuse the 'lefties' of doing.

But it doesn't help the story of the great hope coming to save the nation, on the backs of a popular wave.

Unless you want to describe it as a landslide in the white, middle/working class voters. Then it probably was, and that explains a lot.

Complete aside. Been watching Robert Carlyle in 'Rise of Evil' as Hitler in his ascendancy to dictator. Fascinating stuff. And very un-Trump like.

Bill Clinton lost 56% of the popular vote
in 92 and got over 300 EC votes. They
called that a landslide and nobody
complained. Hillary's 232 electoral votes
is the fewest electoral votes for any
member of the Democrat Party since 1988.

Who said that, and were the talking about the electoral college, or the popular vote, where he won by almost 6 million votes?

Checking the facts:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_election,_1992

electoral college 370 clinton to 168 bush to 0 for ross perot.

popular vote 44.9M to 39.1M to 19.7M
by percent, that is 43.0%, to 37.4% and 18.9%.

If someone called that a landslide, I would think it was much more justified than applying that term to the most recent election.

Almost 58% didn't vote for Clinton,
and they still called it a landslide
because of the EC. More voted
for Hillary than Trump and he got
over 300 EC votes, another landslide.
I hear it said on TV all the time.
