Democrats who were hoping that Hillary Clinton had one last dying chance at overturning the election of Donald Trump have failed. Green Party candidate, Jill Stein, who didn’t garner many votes anywhere (I think I got more write in votes in Arizona than she got being on the ballot), ended up missing the deadline to file for a recount in Pennsylvania, according to the Washington Examiner.
The fact Stein blew the recount deadline in PA means that she’s basically wasted money in Wisconsin. It doesn’t matter what happens now with Michigan’s 16 Electoral College votes, or Wisconsin’s 10 votes. That would still leave Hillary Clinton short IF she were to overturn each of those two states. And that’s something everybody in the world has said probably wouldn’t happen.
Again, the big question remains why someone with “Dr.” in front of their name would be so idiotic and wasteful of people’s time and money to attempt to overturn an election that wasn’t even close in the first place. And when you think of it, had Jill Stein not run, but actually campaigned for Hillary Clinton in the first place, Clinton would have won. If you would have added Stein’s votes to Hillary’s totals in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, she would be president on January 20th, not Trump. So Jill Stein has no one but herself to blame for this.
Unless of course, there was another reason for her to pull the recount stunt. I think personally it was done to keep her name in the headlines for a few scant moments longer. Let’s face it, the glow of news coverage can be pretty appealing if you’re into that sort of thing…and apparently Stein is. When wealthy muckraker, George Soros decided to fund the recount effort, Stein moved forward. And since Hillary was tied to Soros and his big bucks, she had no option but to join in the fun. Of course, she gets tagged with the “sore loser” mantra for the rest of her life, much as Al Gore did. And she ends up joining the likes of Bob Dole, Al Gore, John Kerry, and John McCain as the world’s worst political candidates, probably topping that list with room to spare.
In the end, the Democrats’ chances to do something…anything to unseat Trump with his “upset” victory was a last gasp effort that they had to know wouldn’t go anywhere. So why would anyone bother with this? Again, saying that we had to make sure that our voting machines were safe (in two states that used paper ballots), and that “every vote counts” when there was absolutely no evidence that anyone was denied voting in the first place is ludicrous. All this managed to do was show how out of touch Democrats are in today’s society. It definitely puts an exclamation point on WHY they lost in the first place. They were the reason for the need for change, and they were blind to that fact.
Well, that and nobody wanted to listen to a screeching, fat, old woman in pant suits for the next four years.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
