Good riddance to James Comey, Obama's enabler

via The Hill BY MATT SCHLAPP

 I have to hand it to the Democrats; they had a good week.

They believe in many conspiracy theories, including the humdinger that FBI Director — I mean, former Director — Jim Comey’s intervention in the last days of the presidential election swung just enough votes in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania to deny Hillary Clinton her slam-dunk legacy as the head of the White House’s “frequent flyer” travel office.

Many Democrats will never accept the legitimacy of President Trump, so they have a nationwide movement to collectively put their heads under the covers. Jim Comey is the Benedict Arnold in their progressive revolution, and all expected Comey to be dismissed from his job right after Secretary Clinton raised her right hand. The Democrats benefited twice from the most tumultuous week in U.S. politics that I can recall, at least since the week before: Comey was sacked; and Trump was pillaged by the swamp.

Oftentimes in politics facts matter less than atmospherics. Donald Trumpmade the right decision in firing Jim Comey. The most compelling reason is that Comey had become a lightning rod: hated by Clinton supporters, distrusted by Bush alumni. Comey convinced the Bush administration with a wink and a nod he was with them, followed by a raised fist to team Obama that he was reliable to their cause. In the end, the only cause to which Comey commits is his own.

 

I have no doubt that Comey is a talented lawyer who desires to execute well in any task. His fatal flaw is that his legal abilities are accompanied with a smooth salesman-like style that is good enough to fool many but obvious enough that some see through both it and him.
