The partisan warfare over the Mueller report will rage, but one thing cannot be denied: Former President Barack Obama looks just plain bad. On his watch, the Russians meddled in our democracy while his administration did nothing about it.

The Mueller report flatly states that Russia began interfering in American democracy in 2014. Over the next couple of years, the effort blossomed into a robust attempt to interfere in our 2016 presidential election. The Obama administration knew this was going on and yet did nothing. In 2016, Obama's National Security Adviser Susan Rice told her staff to "stand down" and "knock it off" as they drew up plans to "strike back" against the Russians, according to an account from Michael Isikoff and David Corn in their book "Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin's War on America and the Election of Donald Trump".

Obama was the quintessential snowflake. He was always afraid to stir the political shit pot. Not only did he fail to prosecute former vice president Dick Cheney, but he was afraid to come out and say the Russians were interfering during the election...when the were.

Obama suffered from the weakness of believing politics should be fair and unhindered. I almost resigned from the Democratic Party because of this, and even now I remain neutral to all candidates. If one doesn't step forward and distinguish him or herself to me, I may vote for myself.

Voting for oneself is the simple act of not giving away your vote. If I don't see someone who deserves my gift, I won't give it.

In both examples, Obama was so afraid of seeming overtly partisan that he allowed great damage to be done to America.

That's called 'snowflakeism', to coin a word.  Obama was the greatest president we ever had, except he was unwilling to get in there and throw punches.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell held back Obama’s appointment of a Supreme Court justice for over a year; do you think he cared about intelligence and oratory?

What good is it to have delicate qualities like intelligence and oratory skills, when that's not the game?  It's liking bringing a pair of boxing gloves, along with a copy of the Queensberry Rules, to a gun fight.

Harsh language doesn't cut it.
