Would you like me to share publicly the many complaints you’ve sent to me over the years about unfair moderating? Or maybe just retract that statement? I assure you it is provably false.

You save those things?  :o

John Adams left town before Jefferson's inauguration. We'll probably see that happen again this year as well.

Thank you, Pastor Hannah, I was looking that up. Four years ago, it was a gracious concession on election night.
No it wasn’t. She didn’t make a speech, she sent her campaign director out to tell everyone in the ballroom to go home and they’d know more in the morning. Watch the video. President Trump was very gracious toward her in his speech, but it was the first time I can remember the winner giving the speech before the loser gave a concession speech.

She called Trump at 2:30 a.m. to concede, and then gave a gracious concession speech the next morning--an understandable decision, since the audience for a 2:30 a.m. speech would have been rather limited.

She made a gracious speech. Then she complained ever since that the election was stolen from her.

My mistake. I thought I remembered her speech that night. I remembered incorrectly. I do recall that Trump was unusually gracious in accepting victory and commending Secretary Clinton for her strong campaign.   ;D

 I predict Trump will do one, and only one, of those things.

You save those things?  :o
Heard of YouTube?? One can still view the meltdown of the major 3 networks when they had to announce that President Trump won.

For that matter, one can still view then LCMS Kieschnick announce the 2010 presidential election results here.
What are you talking about? This is the sort of nonsense that normally gets deleted.

For the benefit of the forum ... I mis understood the purpose of Rev Johnson’s remark ... I have deleted my post ... requested that Rev Speckhard remove his ... apparently he logged off before my response was received.. I trust he will remove his post (as well as this one) when he again logs on. Thank

Perhaps you are unaware that the election is not over ... only the bias media has declared their desires ... ballots (legal and otherwise) are still being counted.

Mr. Teigen is right. The election is over. We watched the victors celebrate tonight. This thread should end. There is another thread about the future. And nuttiness about the past doe not belong there.

I agree. We'll stop this thread. Go to the other one if you have more to day.
