Tonight Democrats’ are going for broke in DNC’s four-day long assault on the President of the US. The invective, vitriol and personal attacks are like nothing we’ve ever seen before.
If there were any phony hint of self-restraint remaining, Obama blew it out of the water on Wednesday night, with the most personal attack by a former president ever made on a sitting POTUS. It must have been a real feel-good moment for Obama in busting yet another presidential precedent, like all the others he obliterated.
One day your grandchildren may look back and ask, “you mean there was a time when former presidents did not go out and personally attack the sitting president?”
Now tradition is to attack the president using every conspiracy theory or personal assault possible. Have at it! That’s protocol, for the good of the country. Or just ‘throw a punch, for the children,’ as Speaker Pelosi puts it .
New norms have been set all across the country. It is now compulsory to take a knee at the National Anthem, too. Cancel words in the Pledge of Allegiance to suit yourself. Feel Free.
Fortunately for Obama, he had the luxury of serving under the old rules. More of that “change you can believe in” he promised. Spying on an incoming president and undermining an election would be perfectly acceptable now under his revisions.
So a counterintelligence investigation on a candidate, incoming president or even sitting president, why not? Knock yourselves out. If you don’t respect the country, why respect the office of the president?
I can’t wait to hear what Joe Biden comes up with for his presidential nominee debut.
But the problem with Biden is: some bad Chinese got him weak in the knees.
And that is just the way the DNC Donut rolls.
