COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY RACHAEL REVESZ IN THE INDEPENDENT
‘We need to take action and we will at a time and place of our choosing’
It just does not come more completely brainless than this.
And, given his powerful position, more irresponsible.
For someone's assertion, unsupported by a scrap of proof?
An assertion by one political appointee at CIA who is not supported by any of the sister intelligence agencies or any physical evidence whatsoever? Even the otherwise pathetic John Kerry has backed off confirming this rubbish.
An assertion whose obvious motive is to get back at the winning candidate, someone you don't like?
This sick man, Obama - a failure in virtually everything he has attempted as President from domestic policy to foreign relations, and a man who has killed hundreds of thousands of innocents abroad, too - is also trying to get back at the government which thwarted his bad intentions in Syria and in Ukraine.
That government embarrassed him before the entire world in his pursuit of ill-considered policies.
Of course, he is trying to get back at Trump because Obama knows Trump is going to quickly extinguish most of what he has done, his sad little pile of stuff, his so-called legacy.
Well, here's Obama’s real legacy, making threats and calling names, threatening innocent people with an abuse of power. Of course, I think we can all agree that while profoundly stupid, this behavior of Obama seems almost elevated compared to his construction and oversight of an entire machinery for extrajudicial killing in many lands.
I am beginning to think Obama has gone mad, just adding to all the other deficiencies of his character and personality. Can he not see how ridiculous he is making charges and threats like this? Apparently not, which is a strong indicator of irrationality.
Here is a 2016 version of drunken old Senator Joe McCarthy waving handfuls of blank papers he calls lists and threatening what he calls traitors in the American government. Only the 2016 version sits in the Oval Office, and he has access to the nuclear launch codes.
This is deeply concerning behavior from a man in such a position.
