Skip to comments.Why Obama is Just Not That Into You

There's a psychologist who can predict with 91% accuracy whether a relationship will live or die. His name is Dr. John Gottman, and he runs something called The Marriage Clinic.
Gottman uses several factors to determine which marriages "will succeed or fail. But the main one is this: contempt. If a spouse mocks the other, talks down to him, rolls eyes, or sneers, that marriage is a goner.
Gottman's seminal research reminds me of my friend, Laura, and her relationship with boyfriend, Justin. On the surface, the couple seemed perfectly matched: they were both teachers, runners, and avid skiers. But they had that fatal flaw: contempt.
It was a knot-in-the-stomach experience spending any time with them. While Laura was generally sweet and supportive, Justin would continually put her down.

"Why? Why does Obama turn his nose up on everyone else?"
From childhood on he was taught hate and disdain for anything and anybody American. He is as thoroughly a narcissistic Marxist as an one can be.
Leftists large & small share one thing in common - a total lack of humility. Insufferably pompous & arrogant.
The only difference between them is the effort they put into tolerating the untermensch.
In the neighborhood where I grew up, and this is by no means unique, it was populated by all kinds of working class people raising their families and more or less, dealing with the same issues and financial problems.
They were NOT wealthy but worked hard and saved. Nothing was new but it was ALL clean, tidy and well kept.
The kids (Irish, Italian, Polish, Black, Spanish, Russian, Ukrainian, Greek, Serbian, etc.) were typical and observed a kind of hierarchy among themselves. The boys especially stuck together playing ball, etc., and THEIR little hierarchy was kind of based on skill with sports. I think this is typical in the US.
Bear with me here.
I know for a fact that NO smart a%$-snotty BS was tolerated from ANY kid (regardless of his sports prowess or whether he was in or out of that hierarchy’).
Anyone who handed out lip or had a cocky attitude, was quickly tuned-up. It would be the talk of the neighborhood for days. If the jerk kept it up, he earned himself a reputation which he could never shake, (I know these guys today-still arrogant, snotty and disliked) and in the end, they would be excluded, altogether.
O was never involved with the American character at ANY level .. not growing up or NOW. Either that or else, he is the kid everyone else rejected. I think it is the former.
Without reading the article, it has been apparent to me for years now, that bo is a hateful anti-american. He is without a doubt the most dangerous enemy this country has ever faced, bar none.
You are going to dismiss this but I have observed this nose-in-the-air mannerism in Harvard alums over the decades. ?
It is an excellent article.
