Apparently the Greenies tried this in 2004 as well with Ohio.

Sour grapes, mostly. Fits with the blame Russia narrative. Anything to avoid self reflection on why Dems lost their base.

The Green Party was absolutely determined to waste tax payer money

Doesn't the party asking for the recount have to pay for it? She got more donations for the recount expenses than her entire campaign.

You're correct on that, yes, unless the results are reversed

But as I believe the donations are going to the government as payment for a futile endeavor.... still a waste

Right... But it's not taxpayer money - it's donor money.

so donors aren't taxpayers?

You're stretching here. Of course they are, but it's not tax money being wasted.

Am I? Government requires payment for service, payment is made to government, service is performed to it's full extent despite a clear lack of value

Yes, you are. These aren't tax funded expenses, so by definition it's not a waste of taxpayer money.

It doesn't matter it's still equivalent to igniting millions of dollars. Tj's right, Hillary and the DNC should self reflect rather than continue playing the blame game.

Funny in 2004, if 120K (not sure about exact numbers here) or so votes flipped Kerry's way in Ohio he'd have won the presidency while losing the popular vote by a greater margin than Trump did.

@CD - igniting donor money >>> igniting tax money. Yes, the amount is the same but it does matter whose money it was.

I think we'll have to see what Trump lays waste to, before seeing what pieces are left to pick up...As the starting point for both parties...parties that may or may not be mainstream anymore.

Perhaps this will be the catalyst for the real entry of other parties onto the American political stage, with both mainstream parties made so much less relevant in this last election...both! I don't think that's happened before.
