It’s not likely that Barack Obama will admit that he made a mistake, but he’s certainly re-evaluating his criticism of Mitt Romney in the 2012 general campaign when Obama stated that Russia is no longer a threat in the 21st Century and that Mitt’s warning about a strong, dangerous Russia was ancient 1980s thinking.
After playing kissy-face with Vladimir Putin while negotiating the removal of missiles from Eastern Europe, and after he assured the world that Russia played no part in any hacking that appeared to happen during the recent presidential campaign, and add to this Obama flip-flop the fact that the entire world knows that Obama sent his own people to Israel to campaign against Netanyahu in that nation’s latest Prime Ministerial election (in other words, Obama was meddling in Israel’s election), Barack Obama is talking tough with Russia for what he calls Putin’s meddling in America’s latest election, which saw Obama’s hand-picked candidate get beaten badly in spite of his personal involvement and his campaigning for Hillary, in which he told her followers that his policies and his ideas were up for re-election with Hillary on the ballot and to defeat her would be to defeat him and his legacy. Well, both he and Hillary went down in flames, and Obama has still not recovered.
In the last three weeks of the Obama administration, this is the first time in eight years (except for the phony red line he promised in Syria, which was his usual hollow, meaningless threat) that he’s threatened any nation with real, defined punishment that may be measurable and that could have repercussions resulting from the threat, and even at that, he’s only threatening a sanction on Russia, and Putin eats that type of childish threat for lunch.
Crimea and Ukraine were not a big enough deal to upset Obama, but hacking Hillary’s email server or the DNC computer system really makes Obama mad.
All our fool president is doing is trying to make Donald Trump’s life more difficult and get his presidency off to a shaky start, and he’s making life for Americans more difficult as well, as the man they elected president has to stumble over road blocks put in his way by the outgoing president. Obama’s actions in this regard are unforgivable considering the problems he’s causing America.
