“Doctor” Obama, meet Doctor Krauthammer, Washington Poxg :
Faced with this truly puzzling conundrum, Dr. Obama diagnoses a heretofore undiscovered psychological derangement: anxiety-induced Obama Underappreciation Syndrome, wherein an entire population is so addled by its economic anxieties as to be neurologically incapable of appreciating the “facts and science” undergirding Obamacare and the other blessings their president has bestowed upon them from on high.
I have a better explanation. Better because it adheres to the ultimate scientific principle, Occam’s Razor, by which the preferred explanation for any phenomenon is the one with the most economy and simplicity. And there is nothing simpler than the Gallup findings on the ideological inclinations of the American people. Conservative: 42 percent. Moderate: 35 percent. Liberal: 20 percent. No fanciful new syndromes or other elaborate fictions are required to understand that if you try to impose a liberal agenda on such a demonstrably center-right country — a country that is 80 percent non-liberal — you get a massive backlash
The trouble with play acting as a psychologist is sooner or later you bound to cross paths, and horns, with a board certified in psychiatrist . In the end, Dumbo psycho-babble with prove no more popular that his economic babble.
Paging the Reverend Jesse Jackson, from Wikiquotes :
There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. Then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved…. After all we have been through. Just to think we can’t walk down our own streets, how humiliating.
Jackson circa 1993.
Juan Williams, October 18, from NPR :
‘Look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on a plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”
Williams statement parallels Jackson’s. So if the Reverend Jackson can extend forgiveness to adulterous lying reprobates, who happen to be serving as president, why not Jackson spoken in in defense of man who made the same mistake, or lack thereof, as the Good Reverend?
