Is there a limit to self-delusion? And if there is, what happens when the limit is exceeded?
New York Times columnist Gail Collins began her column last week as follows, "When Democrats run into each other on elevators, they exchange glances and sigh. Or make little whimpering sounds." She went on to observe that "Democrats are going bipolar. Democrats spend all their waking hours thinking about the swing states. If Wisconsin starts looking wobbly, their day is ruined." It makes you wonder what their days are going to be like if Obama loses the actual election.
Liberals are angry and frustrated with Obama. He, however, is not the real object of their anger. Someone once observed, "Our strongest anger is reserved for ourselves." (If you doubt that, just ask any golfer.) Liberals are angry and frustrated with themselves because they bought into the fantasy of Barack Obama.
For the past four years conservatives have been asking themselves, "Why can't more people see what a fraud this guy is?" That may be an impossible question to answer, but the population of those who see him for who and what he is seems to be growing.
One of the things that makes Hans Christian Andersen's "The Emperor's New Clothes" such an enduring parable is how it is both absurd and painfully true. The emperor was naked, but no one wanted to be the first to admit it. A kind of mass hysteria affected the citizens. Once a child spoke the obvious truth, the delusion was shattered.

May be the hard left Liberals will get so dispondent, they get a rope and hang themselves.
No truer words may have ever been spoken.
If john mccain would've sacked up we may not be in this situation.
I don’t think anyone is more surprised than obammy. He thought no matter what he said or did he would be carried into another 4 yrs. That’s why he thought he could skate thru the first debate.
A very telling exchange in the “Comments” section:
The left clings to the image of Che, a psychopathic murderer so evil, he made his comrade in revolution, Castro, look humane.
Any true commie knows how to do the “dialectic march”.
Of course, these aren’t the utopians, but the hardcore tyrants.
One need only go back and view the TV segment from Jimmy Kimmel asking LA-ites on the afternoon of the last debate “who won the debate last night?”
Virtually all Democrats, disconnected from reality and current events, addicted to Democrat pablum and talking points, and unapologetic, unaware duplicitous liars - all.
Being President of the United States is a great thing if you know how.
You mean, Kwa Heri! Salamat Jalan! Ma’a Salam’a!! ;)
“the Communists tried to take over the government of the USA. American who were really suffering rebuffed them and went on to fight and win WWII for their country...”
The Greatest Generation rejected Barry Goldwater, a staunch anti-communist, and voted overwhelmingly for a communist named LBJ.
Let’s not create legends where none exist.
Hawaii is still the USA. I would think Kenya or Indonesia would be better for everyone.
Wow! That guy is well spoken. I would have never come up with a Dennis the Menace anology.
Just like the die-hard Communists who say that Communism hasn't failed, it just hasn't been tried with the right people yet.
