“Because our democracy depends on people knowing their vote matters.”
We thought it was a warning. Instead Obama was laying out the Democratic Party's post-election plan.
His is a scorched Earth policy.
For three months, Democrats have done everything they can to make America pay for rejecting him and the party he came in on.
In January, the Obama administration leaked a bizarre tale of American intelligence worrying that Russia could blackmail Trump.
Only CNN was dumb enough to fall into the Obama administration's trap.
Obama himself denounced President Trump for temporarily halting immigrations from seven countries that Barack Obama himself identified as countries that export terrorists.
On Monday, an appointee of Obama refused to do her lawyerly duty and defend the United States of America in a federal court case.
On Wednesday night, masked fascists set fires and fired small rockets -- fireworks -- at police officers to stop a conservative from speaking at the University of California-Berkeley.
No arrests were made in that Democratic-controlled city.
On Thursday, Obama's party refused to even meet with President Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court.
From the Daily Caller:
The White House requested that Gorsuch meet with Schumer, but aides said Schumer declined in order to learn more about the nominee’s record, The Washington Post reported.
“By refusing to meet with Judge Gorsuch, Senate Democratic leadership is taking Washington gridlock and obstruction to a new low and placing Senators McCaskill, Donnelly, Heitkamp, Tester, and other Democrats up for reelection in 2018 on the endangered politicians list,” Carrie Severino, chief counsel of the Judicial Crisis Network, said in a statement.
She went on to say, “A bipartisan chorus of support has emerged for Judge Gorsuch, a man of extraordinary legal credentials and qualifications, including from President Obama’s former Solicitor General, Neal Katyal.
“This bipartisan support has put Democratic Senators in a state of confusion and disarray, caught today trying to deceive their constituents about a 60-vote standard that the Washington Post gave two Pinocchios. Senators McCaskill, Donnelly, Heitkamp and Tester represent states that President Trump won by significant margins and these Senators are signing up for a Democratic leadership obstructionist scheme that will lead them to defeat in 2018.”This Is Not Who We Are.
This is an attempt to turn America against itself.
Obama should be ashamed. As leader of the Opposition Party, Obama needs to dial it down a few notches.
He needs to denounce the fascism and obstructionism.
In short, it is time he stops acting like a child, and becomes a man who accepts defeat with some modicum of dignity and grace.
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
It covers the nomination process only. The general election is covered in a sequel, "Trump the Establishment," which will be published in paperback on Tuesday.
