The super-sized ego of Barack Obama can only conceive of one reason why Americans might reject his policies - we're just too stupid to comprehend his brilliance. In the President's eyes, we are craven, fear-filled creatures who grasp onto illogical and destructive ideas rather than face the illuminating truths being espoused by Obama the Lightworker. We're rather like Gollum (pictured above) from J.R. Tolkien's The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, pitiful and ignorant wretches who bitterly cling to Our Precious, things like guns and religion. We are suspicious of others, of anything that might threaten our backwards, unenlightened way of life. We know the President thinks these things, because he has said so in the past.
Now, with the november election hopes of Democrats looking fairly bleak, he's saying it again:
At a Saturday-evening fundraiser held in the home of a wealthy Massachusetts hospital executive, President Obama suggested Democrats are having difficulties in midterm campaigning because Americans simply aren't thinking clearly. Seeking to explain his party's troubles, the president focused not on controversial legislation like national health care and the stimulus but on evolutionary psychology. "Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument do not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we're hard-wired not to always think clearly when we're scared," Obama told the assembled Democrats, who paid $15,200 a person to attend. "And the country is scared."
To "break through the fear and the frustration that people are feeling right now," Obama told the crowd, will require high-end donors not just to "write checks" but also to "lift up people's spirits and make sure that they're not reacting just to fear."
You see, in the mind of Obama (or maybe we should call him Gandalf for purposes of this discussion), his eminent wizardness just hasn't been able to get through to all us ignorant, cave-dwelling Gollums yet. His superior intellect is incomprehensible to us, because we are simply not his equal. No Gollum can be the equal of a Gandalf. In order for Gandalf-Obama to cajole Gollum-Americans into doing his righteous bidding, he must "drag them to it," as the comedian/pundit/religion basher/drug user Bill Maher has said on occasion. Btw, Maher would be a troll in Lord Of The Rings. Troll-Maher, like Gandalf-Obama, is also of the opinion that Americans are a bunch of ignorant hilljacks who'd still be shitting in the woods and wiping their butts with leaves if progressives hadn't invented indoor plumbing and toilet paper. (Note - progressives mistakenly believe progressives invented everything...except for the bad things, like the recession, federal debt, high unemployment rates, etc. The bad things were invented by Orc-Republicans led by a series of Dark Lords from Reagan to Bush Jr...but enough about fantasy).
In my last post, I bitched about politicians who engage in slander and lies to mislead the American public. Obama is pretty good at that as well, as I've pointed out repeatedly on this blog, but what should we make of an American President who doesn't think very highly of Americans, who thinks Americans can't think rationally and are driven by fear ? I know what I'd like to say to such a puffed-up, condescending, and arrogant jerk. I'd call him a puffed-up, condescend....oh wait, I already said it. No need to repeat myself.
If it seems I'm being disrespectful to our President, I really don't give a damn. He's being disrespectful to us, and we don't need to be talked down to like we're a bunch of children. It should be possible in this country to disagree with Obama's course of driving America into bankruptcy without being demonized and called names, yet that's all I've heard for nearly two years. If you're part of the Tea Party movement that wants to restore fiscal sanity to the government, they call you a racist KKK'er who cant wait to explode into violence. If you want to cut the astronomical spending increases and keep taxes low, they call you a hater of the poor. If you want a government that adheres to the U.S. Constitution (which should be a no-brainer), they call you a radical. If you are pro-private sector business (which should be another no-brainer), they say you are serving the rich. It's all perverse, and it's all wrong. This is supposed to be a free country, not one with every move being micro-managed by a behemouth rights-destroying federal bureaucracy, which is what we're quickly transforming into. I'm tired of even arguing about it. Freedom is the ONLY way to go.
There's no way to reason with those like Obama. They are convinced they are right, even as they setup their huge bureaucratic structures guaranteeing future failure, even as they see that same failure playing out across the globe in almost every country which has sunk into the socialist morass. They remain undeterred in the face of overwhelming evidence against them.
Thus, instead of trying to reason with them, let's just beat them. We only have a few years before everything gets much, much worse than things are now. There's no time to waste.
