Hillary Now Blames Obama For Her Election Loss

Hillary Clinton’s staff is still furious over her loss, and more than anything, they blame former President Barack Obama.

The camps are clashing over the heated blame game. Clinton’s side insists Obama was the biggest reason she lost, according to Clinton staffers that spoke with Axios.

They think his lack of support was more harmful than her scandals, Russian interference in the election or FBI Director James Comey’s investigation.

Obama didn’t do enough, wasn’t active enough and should have been much less cautious in imposing sanctions on Russia, Clinton’s camp said.

“The White House was like everyone else: They thought she’d win anyway,” a member of Clinton’s campaign told Axios. “If he had done more, it might have lessened a lot of aggrieved feelings, although I don’t think it would have altered the outcome. The Russia thing was like a spy novel, and anything he said or did would have helped get people to believe it was real.”

Obama doesn’t seem to feel the same way about an election that should have been “an easy layup of a win.”

An Obama aide told Axios the White House didn’t come out harshly against Russia because they didn’t want to be seen as politicizing the hacks and using them to grandstand. If they had done so, the aide said, cooperation with Republicans on the state level would have “collapsed.”

He previously made a perceived dig at Clinton in a White House press conference Nov. 14 — six days after her loss to now-President Donald Trump. “I won Iowa not because the demographics dictated that I would win Iowa. It was because I spent 87 days going to every small town and fair and fish fry and VFW Hall, and there were some counties where I might have lost, but maybe I lost by 20 points instead of 50 points,” Obama said. “There’s some counties maybe I won, that people didn’t expect, because people had a chance to see you and listen to you and get a sense of who you stood for and who you were fighting for.”

Clinton lost Iowa to Trump 41.7 percent to 51.1 percent, according to Ballotpedia. Obama won Iowa in both 2008 and 2012.

    The real problem for the liberals is the division of the loot. Obama probably didn’t get a good enough cut outta what Hillary was hauling in on her State Department bake sales.

    What defeated her was the attitude when asked if she would take any of Bernie’s ideas and further them. When on National television she said I am the nominee and that is a given.When she took all the money from countries that hate us and have human rights violations.Refused to show her transcripts. Refused to put back in place the laws that kept us from having a crash for years until it was removed by the Clintons when bill was in office.When she said she was for open borders and globalization, Nobody with half a brain wants to give up our country to globalization. The reason we were the greatest country in the world was because of our constitution and bill of rights.Without those we will be a third world country and slaves ruled by the elite.People have begun to realize how close they were to losing this country. they thought they had it won because as witnessed in the videos they stuffed the hell out of the ballot boxes.There was case after case of witnessed fraud and the removing of competition from the voter rolls.

    They need to give it up already, she lost. Not because of Obama, or Bernie, or Jill Stein, or Comey, or the Russians. She lost because people saw the game she was playing by reading her e-mails. She basically lost because she’s a terrible person, so much so that she was beaten by Trump. The worst candidate we have ever seen in our election process beat her. And she raised over a billion dollars to campaign! If I were in her shoes, I would be embarrassed to even poke my head out the window. If she truly wants to help this country, she should get off her big arse and use some of that donated money to help homeless and hungry people right here in the U.S. You can find them in about any larger city in the country.

    For real? Hillary you lost because you are a horrible corrupt hack. You can never win because of the choices you have made, and who you are. Just give it up already. The fact that you are now all about your new book and your new TV show and your next run for the presidency is just more proof of what a selfish narcissist you are…while tRump is turning this country into a nazi state you are all about you. Typical Hillary. Just go away already. You can never win, and all you are doing is making things worse for everyone by continuing your desperate quest for the presidency. Go away so we can fix this country which, thanks in part to you, is a complete mess.

  • Rachman Cantrell

    Please, Hillary, retire into the sunset while you still can! Thank you for your service, but we have had enough! Please go! Good-bye!
