From an Opinion piece in USA Today:

Just think about that for a moment. A hostile foreign power was able to unilaterally install its choice for president to lead our country and our people. This has never happened before in our nation’s history. Yet it happened on Obama’s watch. And Obama, despite knowing of the Russian efforts, could not and did not stop it from happening, if you believe the narrative. This failure to protect our democracy is an astonishing dereliction of presidential duty, and a damning indictment of the quality and efficacy of Obama’s leadership. In fact, Russia’s success just might make Obama one of our greatest failures. One narrative creates the other. In their efforts to discredit the Trump presidency through the “stolen election” narrative, Trump’s enemies only serve to discredit Obama’s even more. Isn’t irony fascinating?  

And from the Times, NY that is:


Mrs. Clinton was off the campaign trail on Tuesday, preparing for her final debate with Mr. Trump on Wednesday, so it fell to Mr. Obama to rebut Mr. Trump’s assertions. The president did so with obvious relish.

There is no evidence, he said, that a presidential election has ever been rigged. He said there was little indication that it could be, given that elections are run by state and local authorities, with people from both parties supervising polling sites and ballot counting.

“The notion that somehow if Mr. Trump loses Florida, it is because of those people that you have to watch out for,” he said, his voice thick with sarcasm. “That is both irresponsible and, by the way, doesn’t really show the kind of leadership and toughness that you want out of a president.”



“If you start whining before the game’s even over,” Mr. Obama continued, “if whenever things are going badly for you and you lose, you start blaming somebody else, then you don’t have what it takes to be in this job, because there are times when things don’t go our way — or my way.”
Your first quote was taken from a Letter to the Editor, not an Opinion Piece. So what? Some guy in Rhode Island has an opinion. Whoopee. 

Your second quote was made in response to Trump's claim that if he lost, it was because the election was rigged. Obama was right, in that the mechanics of the election were not rigged. However, the manipulation of public perception by all the Russian interference was enough to throw the election to Shitstain.

I'll dump this here, because..... Well I don't want to start another thread.....

 Alex Jones and His Atty. were on Anderson Cooper tonight, still spewing the "Birther" thing.... The only proof that Jone's would accept was a certificate from Kenya that Obama was not born there.... The Hawaiian BC was "Proven forgery".....

 What planet do these guys really come from?

Unfortunately, this planet.  Most of the white people I use to work with would refer to Obama as that "Kenyan Muslim nigger", and truly believed it.  They all voted for Trump.

TMSail vanished in shame a while back.
Took him a couple of tries, but eventually he realised that you can’t claim the moral high ground AND defend Trump. It’s one or the other... and TMSAIL really likes pontificating from his high horse.

He did try to have it both ways for a while... but he could actually feel shame, so unlike Dog and company, he couldn’t keep it up.

“I have nothing to hide and I look forward to everything being investigated and reported on” followed by full cooperation is what someone who thinks they have done nothing wrong says and does. 

“It’s a witch hunt”, followed by attempts to undermine the investigation and/or stonewall it at every turn...is not.

“High crimes and misdemeanors” according to Old English Laww: misappropriating government funds, appointing unfit subordinates, not prosecuting cases, not spending money allocated by Parliament, promoting themselves ahead of more deserving candidates, threatening a grand jury, disobeying an order from Parliament, arresting a man to keep him from running for Parliament, losing a ship by neglecting to moor it, helping “suppress petitions to the King to call a Parliament,” granting warrants without cause, and bribery. 

Arguably, “Lock her Up” violates one of these, although the act was merely threatened. The inaugural and his hotel are opportunities for “misappropriation of government funds.” His hotel is also a grand opportunity for ongoing bribery.  T-Mobile can’t be the only company using this strategy. Were any successful?

And appointing unfit subordinates? A cast of characters and their crimes speak to this one, not to mention nepotism x 2.

Plenty of available charges. Just have to work the politics and imagery.

Quick!

The GOP/FOX talking points are out. 

1. Democrats are scared that Mueller will report no collusion, therefore they are overreaching!

2. The awful Democrats have started the presidential election really early this cycle. That's why they are investigating. You can throw in "we understand, we might do the same thing in their place." That's been approved by headquarters.

Was I first? Do I get a bonus?
