In the past, I have suggested that the president is a wuss-and quite frankly, his foreign image was pretty much Mr. Stepinfetchit-so is any country on the map concerned about a threat of action from a lame duck known for his INaction?

And isn't it funny how his tune has changed in so short a time?



President Barack Obama on Thursday vowed to "take action" against Russia for the country's alleged meddling in the U.S. presidential election.

"I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections … we need to take action," 
Obama said in an interview that aired Friday on NPR. "And we will – at a time and place of our own choosing. Some of it may be explicit and publicized; some of it may not be."

The comments are Obama's most candid yet on the issue, which gained momentum after Republican candidate Donald Trump won the presidency last month. Intelligence officials believe high-ranking Russian officials were involved in hacks into the private email of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's adviser, John Podesta, and the Democratic National Committee.

Authorities have not provided any evidence publicly to support the allegation and Russian officials have denied any involvement in the attacks.

Obama told NPR that he has ordered intelligence officials to review the cyberattacks and that he hopes to have a definitive White House report on the intrusions completed and released before Inauguration Day on Jan. 20.

The president-elect has consistently slammed the reports as partisan and fictitious...

...which is pretty much how the President was slamming them two short months ago!

I'd advise the soon-to-be Mr. Obama to stop whining, but that's pretty much all he has done for eight years anyway...

...and if something works, stick with it!


  1. I think the next step is to look at: Why would the Russians want Trump? After all, isn't Trump the one who's gonna start WWIII? And Putin wants WWIII? No, critical thinking tells us two things, IF we take the road that says Putin wants Trump as POTUS. One, it is easier to deal with respect with an opponent you CAN respect. Obama was not, and Hillary was his SecState most of that time. Two, you must consider that Putin needs a strong USA to play as a counterweight to China in power politics. Europe sure can't play that part, it's like defending the throne from a sandcastle. Obama and Hillary are trying to set us inside that sandcastle. Trump would at least make us an important counterplayer again.

    So the conclusion is twofold.

    Surface logic tells us that since Putin and Obama are kindred ideologically, he should NOT want to support Trump.

    And if he does, it's only because a useless USA is useless to Putin, which merely points out how useless the outgoing administration really was. Which way do you want it?

    1. And at the end of the day, it still sounds like sour grapes from a President who was totally ineffective with foreign policy who is upset because his "team" lost.

      And his whole presidency was that way-"I'm not getting my way so I will use an executive order rather than try to bring both sides to a consensus."

  2. I think my favorite thing about this whole election is that after all of this, the Democratic Party has learned absolutely NOTHING. I mean, they rigged the primary against Bernie Sanders as a way of forcing Hillary down our throats, while Bernie told us all how corrupt and untrustworthy she is. The media only continued to shove her down our throats after her 'win', even as all of these e-mails surfaced confirming how corrupt she is, and confirming how untrustworthy she is (my favorite fact of the election: 11% of people trust Hillary Clinton to tell the truth, and 14% of people believe in Bigfoot).

    So then she lost the election, and what do we get? Is the Democratic Party acknowledging they were wrong to rig the primary and wrong to force a candidate down our throats who is blatantly corrupt and in bed with big business? Is Hillary accepting her loss and moving on? No, of course not. They're all just screaming, "It was the Russians! The Russians did this! I blame them!"

    Homer Simpson: "This is everyone's fault but my own."

    Insert relevant meme here:

  3. Let's say the Russians did hack and release her email...doesn't that mean relevant information was brought to light?

    This is the worst post-election noise I can remember, and while Trump's free use of Twitter does not help, the Democrats are proving themselves to be crybabies.

    The memes are hysterical!

  4. U.S. intelligence agencies spy in on other governments and hack into their affairs as well. Sound like it's all just business as it's always been except now we have social media and the like.
