2. I miss him and the "no drama"

Rule in the WH. Well, I don't know if it was a rule. But now, everyday dumbass donald does something to make himself the center of attention.
I prefer quiet governing.

4. I was talking to a friend last night about this whole affair.

We agreed that the best thing Obama can do right now is to stay in the background and just let this play out as he has been doing. If he so much as offers an opinion, the Trumpkin's will jump on that as proof of his involvement and collusion.

5. Why would he get involved?

 

He's done. He did everything he could to try and bridge the gap between republican and democrats, he did his best to be a role model to all the young children in this country. He his best to get people health insurance and better education opportunities and us voters rewarded him by failing to show up to the mid terms and letting the republicans get away with a rediculous amount of obstructionism and putting the biggest piece of trailer park billionaire trash that has ever disgraced this earth in the White House.

This country played itself. He kept his part of the deal. He keeps his dignity. He doesn't need to get involved in the pig pen again. It's beneath him at this point.

6. Karl Rove 101, Kerry vs. Bush

Rove's playbook for Kerry was very simple: Define the playing field, get your opponent on non-stop offense so there is no time for defense.

So with Kerry, you had two key elements: the Swift Boating fiasco, and "I was for it before I was against it."

Rove kept hammering both memes non-stop, which "energized" the Bush camp.

Trump has set up Obama as an opponent in a political race that's not running. That doesn't mean that he's lost his desire to discredit the former President.

We have not heard the last of Barack Obama's fictitious "acts."

Bannon and company will trot him out every time Trump digs himself deeper in the hole.

And with enablers like Nunes, it will remain the narrative of whatever remains of the Trump "presidency."

One fictitious act after another will be created to play into the clueless hands of the red hat crowd.

8. When your opponent is digging himself a hole

You don't offer him a hand to help him out of the hole.. you hand him a bigger shovel and walk away..

11. So far Trump rages with his mouth.

Trump is a threat to life on the planet. What good would words have on Trump except to make him more unstable? Obama knows full well what took over the executive branch he is looking out for himself and family like everyone else. The bad part it is just not Trump we are not just one America, the unifier followed by the divider. Who wins in the end!

14. I can still hear him say ...

"Please proceed Mr. President"

Knowing the truth is an incredible advantage.

15. Disagree

 

Obama should demand to testify at the house hearings, in public. 1) In right wing media land Obama is the Nixon here 2) In MSM land the Republicans are now jumping on the smear Obama band wagon 3) I would love to watch it as he would own them...
