(NationalSentinel) Unable to fathom that she could be so bad of a presidential candidate she would lose (for a second time) to someone like Donald Trump, now Hillary Clinton is looking to blame something else: Our former president and her former boss, Barack Obama.
First it was the “fake news” that did her in; then it was Russian hacking; then it was our constitutional system. Now, it’s because Obama didn’t do enough, according to staffers who spoke to Axios.
Clintonites feel that if Obama had come out early and forcefully with evidence of Russian interference in the campaign, and perhaps quicker sanctions, she might be president today. His caution, they argue, allowed the public to have a foggy sense of clear, calculated, consistent Russian meddling in the campaign. We can’t stress enough how upset some Democrats are. It’s testing relationships between Clinton and Obama loyalists. It’s making efforts to form a new Trump opposition coalition harder.
“The White House was like everyone else: They thought she’d win anyway. … If he had done more, it might have lessened a lot of aggrieved feelings, although I don’t think it would have altered the outcome,” one staffer said. “The Russia thing was like a spy novel, and anything he had said or done would have helped get people to believe it was real.”
Except that it wasn’t real. U.S. intelligence found no evidence whatsoever that the Russian government tampered with voting or otherwise altered the results. So how could Moscow have “hacked the election” to hurt Clinton and help Trump?
As ARSTechnica reported:
Instead of providing smoking guns that the Russian government was behind specific hacks, [a 13-pate report by DHS and the FBI] largely restates previous private-sector claims without providing any support for their validity. Even worse, it provides an effective bait and switch by promising newly declassified intelligence into Russian hackers’ “tradecraft and techniques” and instead delivering generic methods carried out by just about all state-sponsored hacking groups.
Clinton needs to face the fact that she was a compromised, criminally implicated candidate who did not resonate with enough voters in enough states. Period.
And the fact that she couldn’t even beat a former reality TV host is oh so delicious.
