Team Obama's 'superstitious obsessive-compulsive disorder'

, the brain trust in Chicago was also obsessed with superstitions, particularly after the president’s disastrous performance in Denver at the first debate.

As Thrush and Martin report, the unlikely ringleader of the “superstitious obsessive-compulsive disorder” was the uber-rational David Plouffe. Here are some fun tidbits they dug up about the guidelines the Obama camp followed before the second debate: No Thai food, because that’s what the team ate before the Denver debate. No one can wear the same clothes they wore before Denver. No one can follow the same exercise routine. (“If you had gone for a jog thirteen days earlier, you went for a swim this time,” Thrush and Martin write.) The debate prep team was moved from one conference room to another to shake off “the evil black magic,” as one staffer told Thrush and Martin.

To start with “... the brain trust in Chicago....” - the very definition of an Oxymoron - is appropriately humorous.

Chicago, isn’t that the place where there are more children killed by guns each week than were killed at that school?

Methinks the best thing to be done with that city is to 1) insure that the godfather is there, and 2) use it as a test site for some of our smart bombs.

After the 3rd debate, the team began focusing on voter fraud.

He also reportedly carries a pocketful of religious trinkets to try to win favor with "all gods".

If true, what revealing insights into the minds and workings of this collection of arrogant individuals.

Long ago, a Freeper posted the Agenda of a 2002 meeting of so-called "intellectuals" in Chicago.

Note the participants in that conference are the major "players" in the headlines emanating from White House policy makers in 2012.

Picture this: a group of people who describe themselves as being "intellectuals," declaring of the conference: "It will be both a celebration of ideas and a rigorous examination of the roles and responsibilities that intellectuals play in society."

Nothing is so pitiful and shameful that, in a country whose philosophical document of liberty was authored by an authentic intellectual (Jefferson), and was said by him to be a mere representation of "the American mind" of 1776--in such a country, in 2002, after over 200 years of basking in the "light of liberty" first shed by that document--we now have a group of people sitting around in Chicago and plotting how their so-called "intellectual" efforts will play a role "in society." Consequences of their "role" are being played out now in the "society."

As Weaver said, "Ideas have consequences."

The ideas of 1776 resulted in more liberty and prosperity for more people over a longer period of time than ever had been experienced in the history of civilization!

The so-called "intellectuals" who occupy positions of excessive coercive power in Washington today may, if unstopped, precipitate another age of darkness in the world, where the ideas of liberty have been censored, and "other ideas" from other sources have been exalted.

Dr. Russell Kirk years ago warned of what T. S. Eliot had labeled a "new provincialism--the provinciality of time, imprisoning people in their own little present moments." Picture the participants of that Chicago conference, and we have a visual demonstration of Kirk's words.

The enduring and essential ideas of Creator-endowed individual liberty must be defended against the "redistributionist" ideas which precede and lead to tyranny in every society where they have been implemented.

Where is the Jeffersonian intellect of 2012-13 who is up to the task? Whose study of the founding ideas can equip him to help American youth discover and preserve the ideas of liberty for their posterity?"

Now, however, the Democrats' "media" strategy toward their targeted groups (Hispanic, African-American, women, elderly, etc.) turns such understanding upside-down. They present "regressive" ideas as "progressive," "backward" policies as "forward," and "down" as "up." On and on it goes, with useful idiots like this so-called Obama "team" defending their upside-down views, and portraying their political opponents as backward and dangerous, all the while they exercise ancient superstition in planning how to perpetuate the myth of superior "intellect" of their leader..

It's a strategy which goes deep into the decades-long effort to "fundamentally change" America from its new and revolutionary foundations in Creator-endowed liberty backward into the Old World, and later Marxian, ideas of control by imaginary human grantors and protectors.

As I recall, Hitler was incredibly superstitious to the point that paranoia gripped him in every way. It seems the Obama regime is following a similar path. I pray the history books are kind to America.

Superstitious is not even the word for Hitler. He was created by an occult group. The entire belief system of the Nazi party was based on occultism. It had nothing to do with politics.

Scoff if you will, but they won 2 national elections for Baraq and are radically transforming our economy into a Venezuelan style socialist disaster.

Combine hard left ideology and mob style politics and you have a dangerous force for evil.
