By the way, if Russia was working so hard on the 2016 Election, it all took place during the Obama Admin. Why didn't they stop them?

I want to travel to an alternate dimension and hear what losing Trump would be tweeting about Russian meddling.

Because if Obama had done anything to prevent Russian hacking, the GOP would have claimed he was attempting to rig to election for Hillary.

/well, that he was trying to do it more

As I said in another thread, before long, this "administration" will be putting out messaging that is roughly, "Yeah, obviously, we made a deal with the Russians, telling them that we'd lift sanctions if they'd help get us elected. So what? It's best for America. Democrats are just complaining about losing an election they should have won. Sad!"

And the Trumpanzees will roar and stomp their feet and wheeze and slump on their hoverrounds and put the oxygen masks on for a bit.

He thinks Obama should've done more to stop him from becoming President. That would've saved him a lot of headaches and potential jail time.

Comey refused to do the same thing to Trump he happily did to Clinton. Obama certainly could have came out more forcefully on it but would have been a tough sell with the FBI staying quiet. Funny that for his help he still got shiatcanned like the rubes at those plants still moving to Mexico.

McConnell essentially first committed treason back in September of 2016 to help his party get elected. He didn't care if the Russians interfered because it helped his side.

From WaPo
According to several officials, McConnell raised doubts about the underlying intelligence and made clear to the administration that he would consider any effort by the White House to challenge the Russians publicly an act of partisan politics.

Well considering that a bunch of small-minded gobshiates were so upset that there was a ni*BONG* in the WH that they had to go full potato and elect Comrade Trumpski, you are technically correct.
Which as we all know, is the best kind of correct.

The Obama Phone?
By Justin Bank
Posted on October 29, 2009 | Updated on Nov. 5, 2009
Q: Has the Obama administration started a program to use "taxpayer money" to give free cell phones to welfare recipients?
A: No. Low-income households have been eligible for discounted telephone service for more than a decade. But the program is funded by telecom companies, not by taxes, and the president has nothing to do with it.

We have been told by conservative idiots that the whole Russia thing was a giant nothingburger for the last 5 months, but it brings me a certain sense of joy to see the White House finally admit that they see a hamburger patty between two pieces of bread.

Actually a decency equivalency.

What the Trumplickers deny - and are probably right about - is that the Russians physically changed any cast ballots.

What they are silent about - and probably had a major impact - is how many people changed who they were going to vote for because of Russian propaganda.

You know that "fake news" is a real term used to describe falsehoods dressed up as news reports, right?  There was a ton of it during the election.  People just made stuff up and put them on sites that looked like news sites.  They were 50% clickbait and 50% Russian propaganda.

The term is useful and has been hijacked by the very people who benefited from it.  I wish more people would call out invalid use of the term, because its disingenuous use by assholes is making it harder to talk about a very real problem.

Not to mention that if Obama would've let Hillary have her turn in 2008 he would've easily defeated Vice President Palin in 2016.

You know, I actually doubted that the meddling changed the results, but now TrumpCo says yeah they meddled but no change, it makes me think either they didn't meddle or they swung the whole farking thing.

So, how long before the most religious elements of the right decide that what Trump really needs is to be marched naked through the streets of DC to attone for his sins? That should make this all better so he can stay in power.

Obama is a member of the big government party, as are Clinton and Trump, so he felt no need to stop them. His wish to have an unbalanced budget was guaranteed to survive. The only real threat would have been if Russia helped us into a good Libertarian candidate, like Ron Paul.

If anyone was paying attention during the election, it seemed too convenient that WikiLeaks and Russia would release stuff right when Trump was in trouble.

I've been miffed that the Obama administration didn't arrest members of Trump's election team. Trump himself, if he is part of it. Would it have been civil war? Maybe. But that shipped sailed back in 2010.
