Clinton was very politic in her book about the Obama Administration's failure to...

...publicize the Russian cyberattack and Republican collusion to fix the 2016 election.

I'm not quite as 'politic.' I wish he had put it out there, trumpeted it from the rooftops. Had Obama done that, the Republicans and their idiot base, those disgusting, drooling, racist, nazi xenophobes, would have absolutely freaked out. They surely would have.

But...and hereís the big Ďbutí: Treason was committed. Republican traitors colluded with a hostile foreign power to rig an election. An American presidential election. That hostile power hacked voter rolls in at least 38 states. That hostile power hired trolls to get on social media in swing counties, even down to the precinct level and sway opinion. Trump lost by 2.9 million votes, but the Republicans are also guilty of gerrymandering districts and instituting voter suppression measures specifically aimed at people of color. Now, Trump squats illegally in the White House. He has continued to enrich himself, starting 49 new businesses since his election. He has pulled us out of Paris. He has unleashed cabinet appointees that have the specific purpose of tearing our regulatory structure apart. He has overturned DACA and hundreds of thousands of young immigrants now will be deported. Weíve had nazis marching in our streets causing violence. But at the same time the people of color are being deported, Trump properties in the United States are being used by elite Russian Ďbirth touristsí to have babies that automatically have US citizenship. This, of course, if you look at Putinís strategy in the long term, will be the US ruling class in 30 years. In fact, this whole situation couldnít be going much better...for Putin. For us, not so much. We need to impeach this dirtbag and investigate his criminal administration and campaign organization, as well as about half the Republican party for TREASON. They will NEVER be able to assume the mantle of patriotism ever again. Nor the mantle of morality. They are amoral, sociopathic and indecent. I wouldnít even want Trump in my state let alone in my house. He is a disgusting, vagina-grabbing TRAITOR to this nation we love.

So, as much as I love Obama, and I do, he was wrong in 2016. Treason is treason. Thereís no politic time to bring it up, I suppose, but when he knew he needed to say. At this point, honestly, I donít give a ratís ass about the feelings that might have been hurt among the Republican base. Fuck them. This is my country, too. I was raised here, and Iíve worked hard all my life, over 40 years now. And Iíve enjoyed the political freedom we have. Now, the nazi scum are taking over and what will we have? Another Holocaust? Do you want to end your days in a fucking for-profit concentration camp? They are being built. Yes, they are.

No real American, and that most decidedly includes ALL of us, including the dreamers, regardless of racist laws, can afford to be complacent. RESIST all of this tooth and nail. Every minute. Every day. Call, email, write your legislators. Demonstrate and march. Donate money if you can. Sign petitions. Donít either Trump and his nazi deplorables get away with ruining this country. Because they are. They are ripping apart our institutional, social and economic fabric.

We must work together as Americans to stop them and bring them to justice.

2. I'm not sure what you mean. Do you mean that Obama should not have made the treason public?

Because when she was asked, she said, "Well, I think that Iím very understanding of the position he found himself in,Ē she said. ďBecause Iíve been in that Situation Room, I know how hard these calls can be. And I believe that they struggled with this, and they were facing some pretty difficult headwinds.Ē

Sure there were 'headwinds.'

But this is treason being committed on a large scale. I'm all for bringing it out no matter how it might hurt, because in the end, if it is in the open, then the perpetrators could have been brought to justice. Treason is not OK no matter how many political 'headwinds' might be out there.

3. I probably should have read the whole post

I did a quick scan. I really think he should have made it public -- I thought she was making the same case. I'll self-delete.

I apologize. I misread your post.

I'm so happy you read this! Everyone seems to pretty much ignore my rants. Thank you for at least replying!

6. Was wondering how long it would take before the blame is laid on Obama.

This is pathetic.

7. She didn't blame Obama.

I just finished the book and I didn't read where she blamed him. I too wish he had told us what he knew then but he made the decision and I am also glad he stuck by it.
