Do the Obamas need cheese to go with their whine?

Do President and Mrs. Obama need cheese to go with their recent whine?

First, from ABC News:

“Obama was asked specifically during a news conference whether his former secretary of state lost because of Russia’s reported hacking of the Democratic Party and Clinton campaign computer servers. The president pivoted on that question, and instead lobbed a critique of the media. He said he found the coverage of Clinton “troubling.” “I think she’s worked tirelessly on behalf of the American people and I don’t think she was treated fairly during the election, I think the coverage of her — and the issues — was troubling,” he said.”

Whoever told President Obama that life is supposed to be fair – and that media members are supposed to report on whatever a politician wants them to report on – lied to him.

Then there is this gem coming from Mrs. Obama:

“In a new interview with Oprah Winfrey, first lady Michelle Obama says her husband achieved the “hope” his campaign promised, contrasting President Obama’s administration with the incoming Donald Trump administration. “Everything — the [2008] election was all about hope,” Winfrey asks the first lady. “Do you think this administration achieved that?” “I do,” Obama says. “Because we feel the difference now. See, now, we’re feeling what not having hope feels like.” The interview is part of a special on the first lady set to air Monday on CBS and Winfrey’s OWN channel.”

In response to Mrs. Obama’s lack of hope, New Orleans talks-show host Jeff Crouere has this to say:

“Not surprisingly, many elite liberals in Hollywood and along the East Coast share Mrs. Obama’s pessimistic view about the future; however, they only have themselves to blame. If their policies truly delivered genuine hope, good jobs and a strong economy, voters would have easily elected Hillary Clinton to continue the Obama agenda. Instead the American people voted for authentic “hope and change.” Trump only won because so many Americans have felt hopeless. Now, hope among average Americans is on the comeback trail due to Trump’s victory.”

Meanwhile, the anti-Trump Left continue to hyperventilate about what Russian hackers might have done in connection to Trump’s victory, while overlooking the fact that the alleged hacking by Russians was bipartisan.

From Roll Call: “Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said his campaign account was hacked by Russia earlier this year and that Russia should be punished for interfering in U.S. elections.”

From the Wall Street Journal: “Russian hackers tried to penetrate the computer networks of the Republican National Committee, using the same techniques that allowed them to infiltrate its Democratic counterpart, according to U.S. officials who have been briefed on the attempted intrusion.”

Then there is this bombshell that refutes the Left-wing hyperventilating:

“Wikileaks founder Julian Assange denied Thursday that hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta were stolen and passed to his organization by Russian state actors.”

The Daily Mail elaborates:

Of course the anti-Trump Left are still ranting about Russians, because it is unbearable for them to learn that the leaks to Wikileaks came from disgruntled American Democrats.

Perhaps Boris Badenov can deliver some cheese to the anti-Trump Left.

  • Why waste time and energy on the soon to be former President and his family?

    Let them enjoy the obscurity they earned.

    • Brett Buck

      Unfortunately, I expect Barry and Mooch will be quite willing to provide their sage knowledge at every turn, and that the fake media (NBC, NYT, Wash Post) will breathlessly report it.

      We will never be rid of these parasites.

  • Par4Course

    I’ve thought for 8 years Moochelle was hopeless – now she admits it.

  • Retired military

    Assange has stated on at least 7 different occasions that the Russians were not his source. The MSM has not reported on it once that I know of.

    Also the left seems MIUCH more intent (like about 10,000 to 1) on blaming this on the russians than on denying that it is tbe truth.

  • jim_m

    Michelle and Oprah providing incontrovertible proof that the only thing Barry had going for him was a cult of personality.

    Michelle said that she was never proud of this country until they nominated her douchebag husband. Now that they are out and she can see that all trace of his Presidency will be erased leaving nothing but the record of shattered lives in the ME and a long trail of scandal and broken promises, she is seeing that there is “No Hope” left because no one is going to be kissing her ugly black ass anymore.

    I suppose she will be reduced to making fake claims of racism in stores from now on. (Kind of like what she was doing when she worked for the law firm in Chicago where she found herself in way over her head with rather routine legal assignments, where she claimed her lack of advancement was only because she was black and not because she was actually a whiny racist bitch. As if. )

    In fact, Michelle has pretty much done nothing with her entire life but make bogus claims of racism. So in that respect nothing should change for her.

  • Gee, David, folks who read Wizbang https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d4be0b13aec5c3c19628bf340fd7382ded637b07e719f25636a072278ed300ff.jpg

    knew about this days ago.

    You should try it sometime.

    • Rodney, my posts are published at more than one site. So, I write for an audience broader than the Wizbang audience.

    I wonder who that source is … it would be very interesting to find out.

      The notions that the Russians (and others) hacked the DNC’s and Hillary’s servers and that a disgruntled democrat leaked the emails to Wikileaks are not mutually exclusive.

      • Walter_Cronanty

        Serious question – Have you heard of any published e-mails that DID NOT come from WikiLeaks?
        If your idea that Russian hack and WikiLeaks publication of e-mails are “not mutually exclusive” is correct [and I believe it is correct], and if all e-mails that have been published came from WikiLeaks, then it’s entirely possible that Russians had nothing to do with publication.

        • This isn’t exactly a novel, where things flow in a linear fashion and you’ve got to make some sort of sense for the editor and reader… this is real life, where things are a lot messier, chaotic, and unlikely to make a whole lot of sense IF you don’t already know what’s going on.

          I don’t have any problems at all with the idea that every script kiddie in the world got on Hillary’s server and dragged off everything they found useful.. That thing was wide open – about the only way it could have been MORE open to hacking would have been to have the password and admin ID both set to ‘Admin’.

          Did the Russians have all of it? Most likely. So would the NSA, the Danes, the Norwegians, Swedes, Japanese, Norks, South Koreans, Chinese, Burmese, and probably some dude with 56k dialup in the middle of the flippin Outback. (Ain’t so sure about Venezuela, honestly. 😉 )

          And so would the leaker in the DNC, as the Wikileaks folks have pointed out.

          So instead of a single linear narrative of X hacking the stuff and funneling it to Y, it’s a lot more like one of these.

          Life’s messy. It doesn’t HAVE to make sense, and often doesn’t.

  • Jwb10001

    It’s not the hacking of the emails that cost Hillary it’s the content of those emails.

    • Walter_Cronanty

      You really don’t expect progressives to admit that, do you?

      • Jwb10001

        That’s of course entirely up to them.

    • pennywit

      Don’t think so. I think it was the content of those emails, plus Hillary’s existing baggage. Also, a strategy that took Midwestern blue-collar voters for granted.

      • jim_m

        The election turned on her “deplorables” speech. It wasn’t the word deplorables, it was the naked contempt she had for the American public that turned off the electorate.

      • Walter_Cronanty

        There’s been no intimation that the content was false. So, we would have been better off with less information?

        • pennywit

          Not what I’m saying at all. What I’m saying is that the emails, in isolation, would not have done in Clinton. They worked because they reinforced voters’ existing perception of her as a shifty political operator.

          • jim_m

            You men the voter’s correct understanding of her lack of character

          • Walter_Cronanty

            Well, she is, or was, a shifty political operator. Had this been totally WikiLeaks getting the e-mails from a disaffected D, would the Ds be as upset?
            The Russians shouldn’t be hacking us, but they’ve been doing it since at least 2014 with the White House having knowledge of same – and doing nothing about it. They didn’t care until Hillary lost. I have no sympathy.

          • jim_m

            If the leak was from a disaffected dem the dems would be blaming Russia and everyone else just as they are doing so for their election loss.

          • pennywit

            By the way. Bad Monday Night Football outing from the Skins. If we wanted that kind of performance, we would have kept RG3.

          • Scalia

            They really need to tweak their defense next year. Their defensive backs looked confused several times. Not good.

  • Walter_Cronanty

    Illustrative of the left’s intolerance is this report . While the article is worth reading in its entirety, towards the end is this paragraph:

    “A poll released this morning by the nonpartisan PRRI finds that beleaguered Democrats are significantly more likely than Republicans to report that they unfriended someone on social media or planned to avoid certain relatives during the holidays because of politics. From the press release with the results: “Democrats are more than twice as likely as Republicans to report unfriending someone over politics (24 percent vs. 9 percent), and that number rises even more among women. Three in ten (30 percent) Democratic women say they removed someone from a social network because of a political view. … And while only five percent of Americans say they are planning on spending less time with certain family members because of their political views, Democrats (10 percent) are more likely than Republicans (2 percent) to say they are avoiding certain family members this holiday season because of their political views.”

    • Progtard tolerance on display.

    • I didn’t unfriend anyone – though I unfollowed a few. Sheesh, the whining and moaning was just ridiculous!

    • pennywit

      Hey, your link seems to go to a general index of the Daily 202, rather than a specific article.

      • Walter_Cronanty
        • pennywit

          For a laugh look up some of the old BOFH stories.

        • pennywit

          There’s Aleppo material in there. Gah, Aleppo gives me hives. I have a gut feeling that we should be doing something about the humanitarian disaster there. But I don’t think that anything short of American military intervention will be effective. And I can’t say that American lives should be put on the line for Syrians.

        • pennywit

          I don’t see the PRRI quote anywhere in this link.

          • Walter_Cronanty

            When I click on the second link I provided, I get: “The Daily 202: Liberal hypocrisy abounds as electoral college votes”
            At the end of the article, at the paragraph starting with the word “Finally” you’ll see the PRRI quote.

          • pennywit

            I see now, thanks. My fault. I think I might have searched on PPRI instead of PRRI.

    • pennywit

      I’ve certainly unfollowed more than a few people, but I haven’t unfriended anybody for political views, per se. More like, I’ve unfriended a few people, left and right, who communicate primarily in political memes or personal insults.

  • Walter_Cronanty

    While the press savages Trump, one wonders if they remember this :

    “Obama’s legacy will be one of secrecy and hostility toward the press”

    “…since 2014, the U.S. has added the dubious distinction of joining Bahrain, China, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Russia, et al. on RWB’s [Reporters Without Borders] “Current Enemies of the Internet” list, whose members distinguish themselves by varying degrees of news and information censorship, as well as repression of Internet users….”
    I’m torn between spitefully hoping Trump continues Obama’s policy of screwing over the media and wanting free flowing information about government.

    • jim_m

      The difference is that they willingly dropped their pants for 0bama to screw them.

  • Walter_Cronanty

    [Off Topic, but related] 4 faithless Hillary voters in Washington [3 voted for Colin Powell, one for Faith Spotted Eagle (snort)] – 1 Hillary elector replaced in Colorado. Still waiting for Texas.

    • Scalia

      So far, Trump has 268 and Clinton 160.

      • Scalia

        Trump’s final tally: 304 EVs

        • pennywit

          Trump’s officially the official president-elect. Yay?

          • Scalia

            Yes, a very big YAY!!

          • pennywit

            Welpers, unless there are ninjas off-camera disguised as hedges, this is the end of campaign 2016. Onward to campaign 2017!!!!

          • Walter_Cronanty

            Oh, it ain’t over til Slow Joe sings:

            “January 6, 2017

            The Congress meets in joint session to count the electoral votes. Congress may pass a law to change this date.

            The Vice President, as President of the Senate, presides over the count and announces the results of the Electoral College vote. The President of the Senate then declares which persons, if any, have been elected President and Vice President of the United States.”
            Any bets on whether some prog[s] try to get him to somehow “announce” someone other than Trump has been elected President?

          • pennywit

            I really wish Biden had run and earned the nomination instead of Hillary Clinton. He has a better connection to working-class voters, he came with less baggage, and he didn’t have that annoying Clinton Aura of Inevitability (TM).

          • pennywit

            Also, Clinton’s campaign was mainly a joyless exercise. Mostly well-executed (except for that “losing the election” part), but still a joyless exercise. Biden’s more of a happy warrior. He probably would have had fun … and the election would not have been nearly as toxic as it was.

          • Jwb10001

            Biden is actually more like the happy idiot not the happy warrior. But you are correct he would have been much better for them than Hillary, he at least doesn’t reek of corruption.

          • Walter_Cronanty

            Slow Joe was wrong on practically everything he ever said about foreign affairs.
            He seems like a decent, honest…..well, there was that plagiarism business. Let’s just say he’s clean and articulate and doesn’t speak with a notable accent, except when he talks to southerners.

          • jim_m

            Wow, sounds almost exactly like Biden’s comments on obama

          • Scalia

            The Democrats will be in full revolution mode for the next four years.

          • pennywit

            Not entirely a bad thing. Reliance on the judiciary has made the Democratic Party lazy, and confining itself to the cities and the suburbs has detached the Democratic Party from a good chunk of America.

          • They lack the stones to take up arms in rebellion.

          • jim_m

            Actually, they lack the arms. Hard to fight a civil war without guns. Even harder when you leave a brown patch in your pants every time someone mentions a gun.

          • jim_m

            I hope they do. They will be cut down like wheat at harvest time.

          • Scalia

            Yeah, it’s kinda hard to sustain a revolution when you’re against guns.

          • jim_m

            It’s not over. The Dems will almost certainly file an objection to the certification of electors claiming undue foreign influence in the election. Boxer filed an objection in 2005 claiming ballot irregularities in Ohio.

            All that is required is 1 Senator and 1 Representative. I suspect that the dems will have a whole raft of objections come January.

            I will bet that in this case objections will be rejected along strict party line votes with every single dem voting to delay or not certify the election.

          • jim_m

            The Republic still stands. Yay!

    [Off Topic] In addition to assassinating the Russian Ambassador to Turkey, the Religion of Peace has apparently sent holiday greetings to Angela Merkel and Germany.

  • Walter_Cronanty

    [Off Topic, Again] There’s irony, there’s chickens coming home to roost, there’s asshattery. Which is this?

    “Merkel – who attended an award ceremony to celebrate the International Day of Migrants the day of the attack – said she was ‘shocked and shaken’ by the tragedy.”

    I wonder if the Obola’s will have a permanent cadre of reporters following in their wake when they leave the White Hut? If so, I hope they become a total pain in their bubble-butts!
