Alright, some speculation as to his anti-Israeli stance:

Because he's a pro-radical Muslim sympathizer?

He's simply anti-Semitic?

He not only hates Israel, he hates America and most of it's citizens?

As an ex-dope smoking radical himself, he's for any group that is anti-Israel and hopes to stick it in America's craw fully with giving tax provided funds to America's enemies completely aware we are mostly pro-Israel and pro-America?

Or, am I being to optimistic?

Even though he made claims to being a Christian, Obama's sympathies are with Islam. Ergo, he likes the official Palestinian map of the region, which contains no Israel, being instead Palestine all the way to the sea. It is a given that Obama would be happier if Israel didn't exist, and he did everything he could lawfully to ensure that eventual outcome - INCLUDING trying to influence Israeli elections. Strange how the left sees no moral conflict between trying to influence elections in the Middle East's most progressive democracy, and feelings of outrage about the possibility of Russian attempts to influence our own election. Liberalism, hypocrisy be thy name.

Obama waited only 10 days before weighing in on the new President. May be a record.

Generally former Presidents do not comment except in rare occasions on the actions of a current President. It's a difficult job which can only be made harder by a former President being critical.

I don't remember Bush saying anything.

I hope we all remember all of this if Heaven help us another Liberal is elected. We may have to less polite than in the past.

Yep. What else would we expect of her? And exacerbated by the Schumer/Pelosi led efforts to slow President Trump down by stalling approval of his cabinet.

Open rebellion by government officials in the chain of command below the President? Refusing to obey the orders of the President? Sounds like acts of sedition to me.

POTUS was as slow to respond as he has been in everything else recently. He's already fired Sally Yates, and appointed Dana Boente as acting attorney general. http://abc13.co/2kIMIaA That took all of a couple of hours. And hopefully sends a message.

President Trump now needs to fire all of the corrupt, marxist/socialist attorneys at the Justice Department.

There might not be many left after this. Calling them marxist/socialist attorneys might be redundant.

Last April President Obama signed into law (with bipartisan support!) something called the “Doc Fix.” Politicians sold the plan as a smart way to help pay for low income Medicare recipients and children who did not have access to health care. Retired folks who report a lot of income got docked pay from their Social Security checks to supposedly pay more for “widows and orphans.”

anygunanywhere,

I don't understand "Calling them marxist/socialist attorneys might be redundant"

By that do you mean they're one or the other or both?

When the Svengali-like Valerie Jarrett was ecstatic when they recruited the out and out marxist Van Jones into the cabinet, I knew we, the American people, had elected some one like Castro, who was initially seen as a hero, until he pulled off his coup d'état with gunning off Batista and then announced his marxism....

Obama is an out and out marxist and sadly the naive find communism appealing because they're think it'll right wrongs, not appreciating it's welcoming thugs to run the government. Also, some think, they've been given short shrift because they're lack of effort should be rewarded with so-called 'free stuff'...

Humor Abe, humor. Calling US attorneys Marxist/socialist is redundant because probably most of them are Marxist/ socialist because they are US attorneys.

Obama gave NSA broad new powers on Jan 12, 2017. This allowed Flynn's wiretaps to be viewed by more people some of whom are more political.

Not surprising he waited until after most of the damage he could inflict to sign the
directive giving the NSA the ability to help bring down the next guy.

Just think how petty the Clinton administration seems in comparison considering they only stole and hid stuff.
******TRIGGER WARNING****** If offended, go find yourself a safe place and color a pretty picture.

My rep said he would consider supporting HB560. https://www.texasfirearmscoalition.com/ ... since-2007

Stealing the "W" from the keyboards does now seem comical when you look back.

Oh for those innocent times again.
