Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin who I read, has an excellent piece this week. She says,
“My counsel to you tonight: Please, do not be bitter. Do not fall prey to the Beltway blame game. Do not get mired in small things. Do not become vengeful creatures like our political opponents who voted out of spite instead of love of country. We still have boundless blessings to count — and to secure. I remain a proud, unrepentant believer in the American Dream. And I know you do, too. Freedom will endure because we will keep fighting for it. We can’t afford not to, friends.”
I agree. Obama won fair and square, and sweating the small stuff is sour grapes. The kind of small stuff is like this:
a) Accusations Congressman Tom Feeney (Fmr. Speaker of The House in Florida) employed a man in FL to rig elections and flip them 51% to 49%. Exit polling data has proven to be significantly different than the published results. Rep. Feeney was also the lobbyist for Yang Enterprises, the company that delivered the program.

b) The satirical Duffleblog.com is ‘reporting’ that hundreds of thousands of military absentee ballots were delivered hours after the deadline for them to be counted, with preliminary counts showing that they would have overturned the vote in several states and brought a victory for Romney.

If there is any substance to these allegations, I doubt it, the media will bring these up, otherwise they are scuttlebutt. In the meantime, Michelle Malkin’s counsel is best and the right approach.
