Obama's guerrilla war against the Trump administration

Washington Examiner:
Before moving into the White House, President-elect Trump needs to double check the Oval Office for trip wires. His predecessor has spent the last month springing traps to ensnare the new administration.

President Obama has more on his mind than an effort to solidify a legacy and nail down policy. He has adopted a guerrilla strategy designed to defame and debilitate. Inherently political, it's administrative sabotage by extra legislative means and it threatens to hobble Trump.

Obama has prepared what looks like a classic episode from Mad Magazine: Executive vs. Executive. Instead of delivering on his own agenda, Trump will be forced to deal from his predecessor's final binge. They could consume a notable portion of Trump's first 100 days, but if left unaddressed would stain his administration long term.

To avoid that hazard, an examination of President Clinton's final days in office is helpful. After all, Obama didn't develop these tactics on his own. He lifted them directly from a manual written by the Clintons.

Just days before President George W. Bush's inauguration, Clinton weaponized EPA regulations to set a trap for the new administration. Despite complaints from rural communities about crippling compliance costs and a lack of a scientific consensus, Clinton adopted aggressive arsenic standards for drinking water. When Bush eased the mandate, it unleashed a torrent of criticism that had been long planned, most notably from Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York.

Despite calling for studies based on "sound science," Bush couldn't shake accusations that he wanted to poison children. The attacks found their mark, and Bush later remember the experience as one of the worst mistakes of his young administration.

Now Obama's running the same play. But while his midnight regulations haven't escaped media attention, journalists continue giving the Obama administration charitable coverage. By focusing on the policy impact, they ignore and amplify the coming political fallout.
...
It is another case study in the evils of liberalism as practiced by the modern Democrat party.  They are not just giving Trump the finger but the voters of the US too.  Those voters should remember this the next time a Democrat asks for their vote.

Here is more on his bad faith efforts after voters rejected his agenda.
