4. I agree with this assessment and would add...

that several voter suppression issues seemed to have iffy roots in Republican enthusiasm. Raising a recount could uncover things they did not need to see the light of day.

I had a passing thought when President Obama was declared the projected winner last night. It's really crazy - what if Romney fulfilled the White Horse Prophesy by losing? Take that in. This has been one of the nastiest elections when it comes to lies and the people's voting franchise. Our Constitution has been hanging by a thread when it comes to electing a President in terms of Citizens United and campaign finance. Women's healthcare rights, guaranteed by the Constitution, were in real danger.

What if in that delay between projection and concession, Liberal Mitt rode in on his white horse, overriding the TeaOP handlers, and said he wouldn't contest Ohio? Clearly the Fox News / Karl Rove freak out was planned. Meghan Kelly even says she practiced walking down the hall in the video. (This appears at about 1:05 - 1:20)

I certainly don't believe the White Horse stuff, but it isn't about what I believe. Bishop Romney believes it. He seemed like a weight was off his shoulders in the concession speech - and I can't stand the guy. The Fox freakout was planned. Someone made the executive decision to stop the nonsense.

But all that would mean someone in the Republican party actually thought that acting like a bunch of litigating jerks might hurt the country, so this whole theory is probably not true.

Also, Four More Years for President Obama. It doesn't matter!
