Comment Re:Obama has no right to do this (Score 0) 303

I find it hilarious that you think that "vote fraud" and "hacking" are some how not the same in regards to corrupting the outcome of an election. Does it matter if electing staffers are stuffing ballots or using electronic means to do so?

Vote Fraud it Vote Fraud. It is either "mythical" or it is real. There is plenty of hypocrisy by both (R) and (D) here. Its just that the Hypocrsy of the (D) is really clear this time. You're just pissed that they were caught.

Well, if it's any comfort, there are several Republican Senators asking the same question. But really, whether you trust Obama or not, he was elected by the same rules that will put Trump in the White House. In other words, he has the legitimate constitutional authority to order such an investigation. Your trust in it is irrelevant.

For now the bulk of Trump's die hard supporters will continue cheering for him as he breaks promise after promise. The Rust Belt voters didn't vote for him for anything he said, he was indeed their version of a Brexit vote, a way of sticking to the elites real and perceived. I doubt many voters in these areas hold any illusions as to his capabilities.

What will be interesting isn't four years of Trump's "Twitter presidency", it will be how the Democrats respond, because in all likelihood, a man of Trump's age is unlikely to be seeking a second term, so it will be another non-incumbent election. Will they be able to find an answer to Trump?

"Ousted"could mean "lame duck" and with just over one month to go, he's really lame duck. The Obama legacy is going to be pretty staggering. Double the (unpatriotic) debt. That's it. ObamaCare will be repealed, the court will not reflect his presidency, all those "Pen and Phone" executive orders rescinded ...

He's just pissed that "elections have consequences"

I am a libertarian.

While you are correct, some conservatives game the system with government. And you are correct, everyone will game the system. Draw a line, and everyone dances all around that line. The line is arbitrary and means nothing, but we pretend it is some sort of sacred place.

he has ever right to order such a review.

Before you state something as a fact, you might want to check to see if it is so. A "Right" isn't the correct term, even if it was the correct term, it would require some sort of previous example or court case to outline, neither of which has happened here.

Further this is 100% contrary to what Obama said here:

Funny how something "mythical" became "real" simply because the Democrats lost an election.

1. Not ousted, merely at the end of his second and final term (and one wonders if the 22nd Amendment didn't exist if the election might have been rather different).
2. He's still the lawful and constitutional POTUS until January, so he has ever right to order such a review.
3. Why are Trump supporters so nervous of investigations and recounts? It almost seems like they think there's something to hide.
