Russia conducted cyber warfare back in the summer and only now it deserves a response?

via FoxNews.
The U.S. will "take action" against Russia for alleged cyberattacks on Democratic officials, President Obama warned Thursday, hours after his spokesman claimed that President-elect Donald Trump "obviously knew" about the breaches and leaks that critics say propelled him to victory in last month's election.
The tough talk from Obama came in an interview scheduled to air on National Public Radio Friday. It followed complaints of Republican lawmakers that federal authorities refuse to brief them on investigations into Russia's role in leaking tensof thousands of damaging emails from top Clinton campaign officials.

"I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections ... we need to take action," Obama said. "And we will — at a time and place of our own choosing. Some of it may be explicit and publicized; some of it may not be."
Earlier Thursday, Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters during the daily White House briefing that "Mr. Trump obviously knew that Russia was engaged in malicious cyber activity that was helping him, [and] hurting [Democrat Hillary] Clinton ... "These are all facts that are not in dispute."
This is insane.

Suddenly the Russian breach of Dem Party computers played a part in swaying the election (personally I think they gave us a peek behind the curtain of how the elite actually see the masses) and only now the President thinks it deserves a response?

Is he really that weak?  Was he that indecisive?

We're just over a month away from him leaving office and just now he's planning on a response?

This whole issue was planned as a way to sully Trump and weaken him just as he enters office.  Instead it will be the finally nail in Obama's reputation.  He will be seen as weaker than Carter and "indecisive" will be the most kind word used to describe his foreign policy.
