Dr. B.H. Morbius Explains All
Our favorite Scientist-In-Chief has pronounced his diagnosis:
“Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we’re hardwired not to always think clearly when we’re scared,” Obama said Saturday evening in remarks at a small Democratic fundraiser Saturday evening. “And the country’s scared.”
Obama told the several dozen donors that he was offering them his “view from the Oval Office.” He faulted the economic downturn for Americans’ inability to “think clearly” and said the burden is on Democrats “to break through the fear and the frustration people are feeling.”
“You can respond in a couple of ways to a trauma like this,” Obama said, referring to the economy. “One is to pull back, retrench and respond to your fears by pushing away challenges, looking backwards. Another is to say we can meet these challenges and we are going to move forward. And that’s what this election is about.”
Thank you, Doctor Morbius. Now, why don’t you go back to the underground Krell cave and take another blast from the Plastic Educator while we mere mortals continue to get our freak on.
This, it appears, is the new set of talking points for the Bolshes. I’m sure they’ll win a lot of converts with this kind of talk.
Pundette pierces his fog of delusion and the force field of his Narcissism, and coins a very apt slogan for 2012 in the process [emphasis mine]:
He’s working overtime not to get this: The trauma is Obama! And the massive rejection of his pernicious agenda is proof that plenty of responsible Americans are thinking clearly and acting rationally, at last.
You go, girl!
THE TRAUMA IS OBAMA!
