  •  ok, you know you are a politician when you (13+ / 0-)

    refer to what Allen said as "a gracious concession". PLEASE!!

    Congrats regardless.

    •  Exactly. A 'non-concession concession' (6+ / 0-)

      (sorta like a non-apology).

      Did anyone else read West's whole (icky) statement on it? I read Murphy's "gracious" comment as mainly snark about West, as well as the desire to move forward and not look back. :-)

      Read into the subtext of West's statement, and you'll see that the emphasis is on West himself.  

      West [with my comments and emphases]:

      ... we have been working to ensure every vote is counted accurately and fairly.  We have made progress towards that goal [but not there yet?]. ... While many questions remain unanswered, today I am announcing that I will take no further action to contest the outcome of this election.

      While there are certainly still inaccuracies in the results and the actions of the St. Lucie County and Palm Beach County Supervisors of Elections rightly raise questions in my mind and for many voters...

      I pray he [Murphy] will serve his constituents with honor and integrity, and put the interests of our nation before his own.  [What a backhanded 'compliment'!]

      ... I want to thank all of our tremendous supporters...  None of us should let the outcome discourage us. We should only redouble our resolve.

      Above all, I want to thank God for his blessings, and for blessing me...

    •  but thx for being gracious yourself, Mr. Murphy! (0+ / 0-)

      Romney in a landslide!
