Skip to comments.Obama: Post-Racial, Post-Partisan, or Post-Sanity?
Posted on 07/26/2010 8:08:02 AM PDT by DanMiller
There is no less racism now than pre-Obama, and there is no less partisanship; there may well be more of both.
I was wrong in thinking that these things might diminish, and while having voted against him provides a bit of comfort, it provides very little. That there is now even less sanity provides no solace whatever.
Caligula, a Roman emperor, was clearly nuts; he probably suffered from schizophrenia and other serious mental illnesses. However:
[Those] who believe that Caligula was never mentally ill attribute his erratic behavior to being suddenly presented with immense responsibility, having had no previous experience with holding public office. They suggest that actions such as insisting on his deification and making his horse a senator stem from a wish to test the extent of his power and a petty vendetta against the Senate. But popular opinion still holds that no sane person could have done what Caligula did, and that it was by all accounts a relief when Claudius took over.President Obama is almost certainly not insane as the term is used medically, rather than as a slang or colloquial expression. However, if snake oil czars are actually appointed, and if first Dog Bo is named White House congressional relations czar, we may have additional concerns. That sort of thing didnt work out too well for Caligula and his horse.

Glenn Beck is right. The republic is gone. This is a Marxist dictatorshop.
I just had to click on this to see who came up with that wonderful headline.
“...the short lame duck congress following the November elections can easily become a monster.”
I honestly believe this is already in the works. We need to pray and work hard for this country! (Please note the order of those two actions....)
