Time to revisit the question: 'What if Obama is out of his mind?'
American Thinker ^ | 3/4/10 | Tony Gallardo

Posted on 03/04/2010 10:20:30 AM PST by Nachum

In an Esquire on-line article on June 10, 2009, Charles P. Pierce asked "What if Obama's out of his mind?"

In one paragraph, he led off with:

"Listen to him. He's talking in what seems to be a glossolalic deluge of issues. One plan a week, each thrown out there while we're still digesting the previous one. He's moving too fast for us to keep up with him. He's talking a private language, to himself, like crazy people do....."

At the time, relatively early in the administration, it was tempting to think that Obama may be a little overzealous in his pursuit of his agenda, but crazy? Nah... our president? No way.

Maybe it is time to ask again.

After pursuing a reckless healthcare reform plan for 14 months now; after having it roundly rejected by the American people; in the aftermath of significant election losses in New Jersey, Virginia, and Massachusetts; after having been shown that it is at minimum a budget busting $1 to $2 trillion monstrosity, he is continuing to insist on getting it passed, one way or another.

The ONLY thing Zero may do that is good while in office is to totally destroy the Dumbocratic party.

Any “outhouse Psychiatrist” can tell he is at best a complete narcissist, and at worst a total nutcase whackjob. Probably the latter. The longer he is in office the more damage he does to the left. Just seems strange to me they don’t seem to realize what he is doing or if they do are afraid to say anything.

I had this very conversation before the election with a lawyer friend of mine.

What if he REALLY IS a “total narcissitic whack job” bent on the destruction of this country (and it certainly appears that he is)? What powers are in place to thwart such a scenario?

What is the responsibility of the military when it comes to obeying the commander in chief if he turns into another Chavez?

Suppose he gave some crazy-a$$ order to start firing on American citizens or he wanted to launch a nuke for no good reason? (I know, I know, but I’m just saying...)

He and Pelosi both are OBVIOUSLY batt-shi+ crazy!

Not crazy, but malicious and deceptive.

Too many people refuse to see the plain truth.

The man has lived with, studied under and befriended radical Marxists for his whole life!

Why make the issue so complicated? We have a Marxist in the White House who is following the destructive Alinksy / Cloward-Pivin playbook to the letter.

Take note that he never called them Dr. So and So. He called them by first name. Which either infers they are not doctors or that as a Marxist, he has no respect for the profession.

“There seem to be only two possibilities; either Obama is in fact “crazy”, meaning he is certifiably detached from even a scintilla of reality, or he is cunningly trying to drive the rest of us crazy by standing before us, chin jutted into the air, and seriously proclaiming for the umpteenth time what we all know to be pure claptrap.

“I can think of no third possibility.”

The third, and, obvious answer is that he has no contacts or references outside the hard-left and has not had them for decades. He is speaking their entirely self-referential language. It never occurs to him to think about whether it makes any sense. It is axiomatically sensible. Everyone he knows, knows that.

"The longer he is in office the more damage he does to the left. Just seems strange to me they don’t seem to realize what he is doing or if they do are afraid to say anything." The Left has an irrational and unjust hatred of anyone who disagrees with them. None on the Left are going to stop him because they support his ideas and how to implement no matter how loony and self-destructive they might seem because of their core hatred. The more extreme the better! I think we on the Right should support everything the Left does for the purpose of helping to destroy themselves. Let them play their hand and show all of their cards. The public needs to know without any doubts who they really are and what their agenda is. Once Americans clearly see the writing on the wall most will say, "No, thank you."

""Dr. Quentin Young, Longtime Obama Confidante and Physician to MLK [Martin Luther King]

FROM "THE OBAMA FILE"...
RE: QUENTIN YOUNG

The primary figure who delivered Obama to the single-payer camp was Quentin Young, an 86-year-old retired physician who was a longtime friend and neighbor of Obama in Chicago.  Young joined the Young Communist League as a teenager in the late 1930s.  From the mid-1940s through the mid-1970s, he was closely associated with the Communist Party.  In October 1968 he was called to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee, which was probing the extent of his knowledge about the riots that had erupted at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago two months earlier.  The Committee accused Young of belonging to the Bethune Club, an organization for communist doctors; the group was named after Norman Bethune, a communist physician who devoted his services to the totalitarian regime of Mao Zedong

Dr. Young was active in the radical movements of the Sixties and Seventies and led a small delegation to Communist North Vietnam in 1972.  In the late 1970s, Young became associated with a Marxist organization known as the New American Movement, which was initially convened by Michael Lerner, an America-hating radical who counseled young people to explore the use of LSD and other hallucinogenic drugs as portals to a greater comprehension of socialist principles.

In 1980 Young founded the Health and Medicine Policy Research Group, a single-payer lobby group whose Board of Directors he chairs to this day.  In 1982 Young helped establish the Democratic Socialists of America, which, as the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International, asserts that "many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed."  In 1987 Young co-founded Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP), a single-payer advocacy organization where he currently serves as national coordinator. In PNHP’s view, government-run healthcare "should be financed by truly progressive taxation."

In 1995 Young attended the now-famous meeting at the Hyde Park home of former Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, where Barack Obama was first introduced to influential locals as the hand-picked successor to Alice Palmer, a pro-Soviet radical who planned to vacate her Illinois State Senate seat in pursuit of a higher elected office.  Young quickly became a friend and political ally of Obama, teaching the latter about the merits of single-payer healthcare.  In a 2009 interview with Amy Goodman of Democracy Now!, Young reminisced about the germination of his ideological kinship with the young Obama:

"Barack Obama, in those early days [as a state senator] -- influenced, I hope, by me and others -- categorically said single payer was the best way, and he would inaugurate it if he could get the support, meaning [Democratic] majorities in both houses, which he’s got, and the presidency, which he’s got.  And he said that on more than one occasion…."

Another noteworthy influence on Obama’s views vis à vis healthcare has been Dr. Peter Orris, who co-founded Physicians for a National Health Program with Quentin Young.  The son of a Communist Party member, Orris in the 1960s was a leader of Harvard University’s campus chapter of Students for a Democratic Society, the New Leftist organization that aspired to overthrow America’s democratic institutions and remake the nation’s government in a Marxist image.  He later joined the Communist Party (CP) for more than two decades, before ultimately shifting his allegiance to the CP splinter group, Committees of Correspondence, where he remains a prominent figure to this day.

If you take the time to study the history of the Left for the past 100 years (actually starting in 1820 with Robert Owen and his Owenite followers who started America’s first commune in Indiana) you will see they have been hard at work steadily working on destroying America from within but also from without.

If Americans elected a group of Congressmen and Senators who promised that after selecting a true conservative Speaker of the House; they would immediately impeach and convict both Obama and Biden; we could prevent the disaster of 2 more year of left wing rule.

My real fear is that once it is clear that a large majority voters have permanently turned against them, and that no amount of vote fraud and media bias will turn the tide,
Obama’s people will turn to totalitarian fascist means to maintain power.
I think that the anti-democratic ultra left (”Hugo Chavez style”) extreme rhetoric you hear on MSNBC every night is the real voice of Obama administration. And that voice advocates the forced suppression of alternative points of view and the deamonization of its opponents.
In very general terms “Socialists” can be voted out of power, “Communists” can not. I think when push comes to shove; we may discover, too late, that what we have been fighting is not “socialism” but “communism”.
