Close Quarter Political Combat

I missed this article in PJ Media when it came out four days ago. It gives an example of desperate close quarters combat and a summation of the Trump-Clinton-Obama tiff that is s thing of beauty. Trump doesn't attack the extremities seeking to weaken his opponent, he goes much deeper than that.
The most singular thing about Donald Trump's wiretap accusation against Barack Obama is how he's refusing to play the game of extremities — losing a Flynn here and getting a Sessions paralyzed there — and getting right into lethal range. Trump's gone right past Schumer, ignored the surrogates and gone straight for the former president himself.
Once elected, Trump gives Hillary a pass on her criminal activities and the Democrats thought it was a sign of weakness. They pile on Trump by attacking his Cabinet choices, fatally wounding National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and harassing AG Jeff Sessions. In return, Trump does not go after Democratic flunkies, he goes right for Obama's throat.

He accuses Obama of criminal activity while he was President. Now Obama has a different problem to tackle and Trump is in a position where he cannot back off. He must kill Obama politically.
This escalation represents a real threat to Obama. Suddenly everything is out of control. Nobody would have minded much if Trump had gone after one of Obama's henchmen — which is probably what was expected — but none can foresee how an exchange of blades between principals will end. It is safe to say, however, that unless the combatants disengage, someone will get hurt. It will be a terrible moment for American political civility when a king lies on the political floor. The whole point of a peaceful transition of power is to prevent a clash between kings. Yet the very tragedy the electoral process is intended to prevent is happening before our eyes.
Obama and his minions are evil, traitorous slime. Trump needs to end them. I trust he will.

He needs to cut the head from the snake...and the carcass will rot and wither.

LL - absolutely. He needs to cut off the funding - Soros needs to go.

You're much more optimistic than I.

Sounds good. There are many to go after.

Longbow - I know, I'm just trying to keep my sanity. If Trump disappoints, so be it.

Kid - it is indeed a target rich environment.
