The Recount Kabuki

recount-kabuki

According to the Hill, it was Barack Obama who instructed Hillary Clinton to concede the election in the wee hours of November 9.

And now, in the midst of this recount Kabuki started by the self-indulgent Jill Stein, the White House is once again coming forward to say the election was free and fair and the results must stand.

Barack Obama seems an unlikely ally for Donald Trump, I know.

But when you stop and think about it, it makes sense.

Barack Obama doesn’t want this recount for a few self-serving reasons.

First of all, Hubris.

If Hillary Clinton won the White House, she would have become the titular head of the Democrat Party. Barack Obama would not be able to insert himself into any policy debates without pitting himself against Clinton.

Let’s face it. Obama is most comfortable when he is opposing someone. With Clinton in the White House, he would not be able to portray himself as the thoughtful, intelligent opposition.

Obama wants to retain his relevance. He has to. His narcissism is too great to accept a quiet retirement.

And with a Hillary presidency, Obama would have to fade into the background. Something Barack simply cannot abide.

With Trump in the White House and the Democrat Party in disarray, guess who can step in as the “voice of reason?”

Barack Obama.

He can cast himself in the role of “leader of the opposition” thereby keeping himself in the public eye.

He’s already said as much, hasn’t he?

Once you give a narcissist a taste of the bully pulpit, he’s not going to want to give it up.

Ever.

A President Trump is the perfect foil for Obama’s self-indulgent desire for relevance.

Another reason is Legacy.

How “history” judges Barack Obama is a point of obsession for the man.

Sure, Trump may unravel a lot of what Obama’s done.

But I really don’t think that bothers Obama nearly as much as losing his place in “history.”

Let’s face it. We all know how important “history” is to Barack Obama. How often have we heard him sanctimoniously declare that those who oppose him will be on “the wrong side of history?”

Obama wants “history” to be his judge. You know, the same way he thinks Fidel Castro will be judged by “history.”

Hillary sought the White House with the promise that she would build on Obama’s legacy.

We aren’t the only ones who believe Hillary Clinton would have been an incompetent, bumbling President. I think Obama knows that as well.

It would do irreparable damage to his “legacy” to have a bumbling idiot like Hillary Clinton bullocks up everything.

It would not only make the American people turn on her, but by extension, turn on Obama.

He will be remembered as the President who started the downward spiral that led to the incompetent Hillary Clinton.

Do you think Obama is willing to risk being smeared by “history” just to have Hillary as President?

No way.

But being able to actively oppose Donald Trump will allow Obama to look noble and righteous. This is all about influencing what future generations think of him.

If Trump dismantles Obama’s feckless agenda, it gives Barack something to fight against. And that’s what he will be remembered for.

Intentions are what matter to a Leftist, not the outcome.

Finally, there’s the Left’s Long Con.

This recount Kabuki runs the risk of exposing voting irregularities.

And who commits voter fraud?

The Democrats.

A CEO who is embezzling from a company would not willingly submit to an audit. You know what I mean?

Any fraud revealed in a recount exposes the Democrats’ long con to scrutiny.

The truth is Donald Trump didn’t win because of fraud; he won despite fraud.

The long-term risk to the Democrat Party from the exposure of voter fraud outweighs the butt-hurt of Hillary Clinton.

Exposing voter fraud on a recount that will not change the outcome of the election risks blowing the con.

There is no way in hell Obama is willing to risk that.

Hillary doesn’t care about the long con of the Democrat Party. She’s got her own con job to think about.

Hillary’s willingness to participate in this recount Kabuki isn’t about changing the outcome at all.

Don’t be fooled. This isn’t an attempt to “steal the election.”

Hillary Clinton is just a spiteful, vindictive bitch. It’s no more complicated than that.

This recount Kabuki is being done out of spite.

Her goal is simple.

Payback.

Donald Trump beat her. And now she wants him to pay.

What better way to get back at Trump than to sow seeds of discontent among voters while creating the illusion that Trump’s win is illegitimate?

Even when the recount proves pointless, the stink of illegitimacy will remain.

Just ask George W. Bush.

Both Obama (in opposing the recount) and Hillary (in calling for one) have the same goal in mind:

To delegitimize Trump’s presidency and cripple his ability to govern.

So much for the “peaceful transfer of power.”

    Jill Stein has latched onto the biggest money making scam of her career. “Send me money for a recount, that may not be used for a recount. And look! We’ve met our goal! Therefore, we must raise our goal, again and again, because this scam isn’t exhausted yet!”

    I don’t know, Dianny. While I agree that both Obama and Clinton would love nothing more than to cripple and delegitimize Trump’s presidency, I think there’s more to this. I think this recount thing is something we need to be greatly concerned about.

    As I said the day after the election, in another post, here, Hillary’s not gonna’ let this be. She saw a win as her “right.” Not only that, Trump shamed BOTH the Clintons on their second debate, in front of God, and the world, when he called Bill a rapist, and later said that he would see to a special investigation into her private emails. And though I hear that he’s already backed down from that, what’s to say that he won’t change his mind again, at a future date?

    I think she’s not willing to take a risk with that. Also, I have read that Soros is bankrolling this; as rich as he is, I don’t believe he’d throw his money away for no more than “theatre.” Just my opinion…but I think this is deadly serious.

      Good40 I agree that Clinton won’t take this graciously. Humble and gracious are foreign words to her. I read that since she couldn’t find proof of Russian vote tampering she’s joined the stein recount hoping to make Trump presidency not a will of the people so she can run on that. She’s hoping the recount will take so long that they won’t be able to cast EC votes and he won’t get 270 so congress will decide. Then in 202O she’ll say Trump was elected by congress. She sure has an optimistic outlook for herself in four years.

      O/t and I know this is extremely petty of me, I admit it. But wtf with her teeth? I have some weird obsession with teeth and I always tell my husband damn if I had her money I’d have teeth bleaching or laminates.

    To Soros, the entire world is his theater. People are no more than pawns to be manipulated until he finds the right ” dummy” to do his bidding. The guy is as evil as any tyrant in history. He stays just below the criminal radar screen , while his Morlocks do his dirty work. Surely there is a place for him in hell.

      Mike soros never met a nazi he didn’t like. Too bad ows, blm, and idiot college students don’t put that energy into where it should be instead of being so stupid they don’t see how they’re being used. I guess when you don’t have bills it’s easier.
