Double Standard?

I'd like to give some quotes from after the 2000 election from Conrad Burns and George Allen (thanks to dailykos)

First Burns on a press release in 2000:

On November 28, 2000, when the Florida election results were certified, Conrad Burns said Gore "appears more and more like a man who wants to win at any cost." Burns added, "It is time, as some have said, for Vice President Gore to stop being a litigant and start being a Patriot. The good of our nation is greater than any one man, and it is time for Mr. Gore to end these challenges and bow out gracefully."

Now from the Great Falls Tribune on November 30th, 2000: "Mr. Gore should step aside and let the Bush team begin its orderly transition to the presidency."

Now George Allen on the today show November 8th: "we'll need to move America forward as soon
as those votes are cast."

I wonder as well if they will have a typical right-wing double standard where they hold up the election results. I hope not but I know better.
