After over six years of the Obama presidency, the scales are finally falling off the eyes of some liberals. I am shocked to hear liberals saying the same things about President Obama as conservatives (including me) have been saying since 2007 when he first announced his candidacy. What took so long? It is as though liberals have been intoxicated for years and have just sobered up. I am encountering liberals describing President Obama as a Muslim sympathizer, incompetent, weak, indecisive, and inexperienced. All of this was obvious during his campaign for anyone that did an honest examination of the candidate. I was recently discussing current events with a black American man. He told me that he admits voting for Obama; however he has just realized that the Democrats have ruined the country. I asked him what made him think (in 2008) that Democrats were good for America. He responded by claiming that the choice between Republicans and Democrats was a toss-up between two evils. I asked him to name one Democrat policy that has been a success. He did not have an answer.
The only explanation for an individual to not to see what is obvious is for him or her to chooses to ignore facts or deny reality. Ignoring and denying facts involves work. Accepting facts does not require work. In fact, it is easy and less stressful to accept the obvious. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it is a duck. Two plus two equals four. Liberals will twist themselves into a pretzel in order to ignore facts, deny reality and explain away failure. It depends on the definition of IS. How else can one explain defending President Obama and the Democrat Party’s failed policies?
Liberals are constantly spinning lies to explain away every failed liberal policy from the New Deal, ObamaCare to the so-called Stimulus Package (the not-so-shovel-ready jobs bill). Liberals are just like children. They live in a fantasy world and when faced with reality, they blame others. Unhinged Chris Matthews blames former Vice President Dick Cheney for creating al Qaeda and ISIS. Feminist and liberal women refer to a baby as a fetus in order to deny the reality that abortion is the killing of an unborn child. One hundred and fifty years after slavery was abolished and fifty years after the Civil Rights Act was signed into law, Liberal intellectuals are hard at work inventing new theories and words such as white privilege, systemic racism, and micro aggression to explain the state of the black community. On the other hand, conservatives have simply acknowledged the reality that the problems afflicting the black community stems from the breakdown of the family.
I will admit that I honestly believe that Liberalism is a mental disease, especially those in the media. How exhausting it must be to be presented with facts on a daily basis and have to think of ways to spin it to favor your political position. The mainstream media abandoned its job of keeping government honest and instead has been spinning lies for the current administration for over six years. If I had to engage in the kind of thinking where I had to lie to others, I myself would need therapy. Now that America is reaching a breaking point, some in the media are slowly jumping off the sinking ship. They lied about President Bush and the Iraq war and claimed that the world would love us once Obama was elected. I can just feel the love coming from ISIS. The media lied to the American people (along with the Obama and the Democrats) about what Obamacare would and would not cover. We now learn that taxpayer funded abortions will be covered under Obamacare.
Honesty, common sense, and a sound mind alone would prevent individuals from lamenting six years later that President Obama somehow duped them when he was running for president. One individual told me that Obama fooled him because he was such a good orator. I told him that a lie is still a lie regardless to how eloquent it is spoken. In other words, if one has a sound mind and listens (without distraction) to the words of the speaker, he or she will not be duped even if the speaker is Patrick Henry.
