Obama's obstructionism

In October, Barack Obama told the nation: “When you try to sow the seeds of doubt in people’s minds about the legitimacy of our elections, that undermines our democracy. Then you are doing the work of our adversaries for them.

“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.

For autographed copies of either book, email me at DonSurber@GMail.com

    1. That's right, but Don is right too, that not just Obama but the entire progressive left needs to STFU, right now. They are sanctioning the start of a civil war.

  2. In Berkeley supposedly 1 person was arrested, ONE person. The DC rioters were released on their own recognizance, even thought they may not have had community ties and may be habitual violators of the law. Little has been written about these anarchists for you and me to judge if this is a miscarriage of the rule of law. Charged with felony rioting, yet they have their personal information/history kept away from citizens.

  4. Whatever percentage of the democratic party is still mature, it is not enough. Most of the party has been hijacked by the extreme neo progs who, like the communists in France, Russia, etc, will stop at nothing to get the power needed to install their agenda.

  6. "Obama should be ashamed. As leader of the Opposition Party, Obama needs to dial it down a few notches." He should be, but he isn't. He'll never grow up. He and the Dems and George Soros and their media minions are making "Democrat" a dirty word for a dirty bunch.

    It's what community organizers do. In the old days, they were called rabble rousers.

  8. Enforce the laws and get the miscreants off the streets. Hold them accountable for their actions. Prosecute them to the full extent of the law. - Elric

  9. I posted soon after Trump was elected that the Democrats would adopt a scorched earth policy in all of its dealings with the Trump administration. That was an easy prediction because it's who they are. They are already looking forward to the 2018 mid-term election in the hope of capturing the Senate so they can obstruct Trump for the last two years of his term leading into the 2020 election. If they were to get control of the Senate, they'd want Trump to be tempted to govern by EO in precisely the same way Obama did, but in the run-up to the 2020 election they would portray Trump as a fascist dictator who needed to be removed from office. They would call for the House to impeach him again and again so the Democrat controlled Senate could remove him. And they would use that same issue to attack him in the presidential election campaign (not that I expect Trump to run for a second term...he appears to be giving Pence high visibility all the time and setting him up to replace himself).

  10. Obama has zero class. He has no concept of class. Therefore he just can't STFU.
