When Barack Obama stuck his head back in the political fray, he may know or not that he has a whopper of a problem. Note, I did say singular.
Last weekend Obama ended his silence by speaking out about the Flynn case running out of steam. Well, it really appeared to to bug him, didn’t it?
“The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed — about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn,” Obama said in an audio clip that was obtained and released by Yahoo News.
“And the fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk,” the former president said. “And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places.”
Barry Soetoro, Barack Hussein, or whatever name he is using, is probably starting to feel squeezed like a dishrag. If he isn’t there yet, he soon will be. He is likely starting to consol with some advisor (David Axelrod or Eric Holder) about the political ramifications of his newfound situation.
The more you think about it, the more you will see he has a predicament on his hands. Sure this case was about Flynn, so he and media wants us to think, but it is much more about Barack Obama and his administration. A s the coup was Obama’s administration.
I am not being dramatic, I am disappointed that conservative press has not connected the dots for Obama’s situation, problem yet. The quandary for Barry is how he plays his cards, he dealt himself, which determine everything else forward. What do I mean?
Either he plays it that he was the absentee professor, in which case he claims he had a rogue agency meddling in the election and presidency after it; or he simply says he was fully aware of the treasonous seditious coup afoot under his scandolous administration. See the problem with both options.
He is in a very bad place. But hey, he’s had almost four years now to think about and plan this out along with his excuses for it.
There is one other possibility that he could try to defend it all as justified. But that is getting harder, seeing how flawed and illegitimate it all was. We don’t even have to get into why, as in the real motive. He has to choose how to respond to what we’ve found and what is yet coming down.
Personally, I would like to see him have to spend 7+ million or so trying to explain his actions and those of his administration, just for starters.
No wonder Barry is lashing out under mounting pressure. Not that he ever cared about defending himself, he never had to. He has two paths in front of him, each will determine his future path and strategy. Does he try to defend indefensible behavior?
Does he once again say he was not in the loop in it all? But we know he was there and in on it this time. So does he pass it off as rogue actions of an out of control intelligence apparatus acting on their own? Or does he admit he was in the loop but they were all justified in their scheme? Will he take the hit and responsibility for all that went on? Or will he try to blame all his subordinates for screwing him and his legacy (no-scandal record) up?
His underlying problem is that kind of operation can only be done under the president’s authority and knowledge. By definition it requires his approval. Comey blessed him.
Oh, he is in a heap of trouble. You know the saying that you can give someone enough rope. And he has been given lots of rope and opportunities to explain this over the years. But just like Benghazi, he never does try to explain it. Now he must choose how to respond. Both are inherently bad choices for him. No surrogates or advisors can bail him out either.
I sort of expect that Barr understands all that very well. And Durham is bound to come up with something damning about Obama’s administration. So even if that does not involve him personally, he will now have to have an explanation for it. That is something Barry Soetoro has never been forced to do before. He doesn’t like coerced decisions or explanations he cannot pass off to someone else. No one can do it for him this time.
