Bush Derangement Syndrome
...
It has been 25 years since I discovered a psychiatric syndrome (for the record:“Secondary Mania,” Archives of General Psychiatry, November 1978), and in the interim I haven’t been looking for new ones. But it’s time to don the white coat again. A plague is abroad in the land.

Bush Derangement Syndrome: the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency — nay — the very existence of George W. Bush.

Now, I cannot testify to Howard Dean’s sanity before this campaign, but five terms as governor by a man with no visible tics and no history of involuntary confinement is pretty good evidence of a normal mental status. When he avers, however, that “the most interesting” theory as to why the president is “suppressing” the 9/11 report is that Bush knew about 9/11 in advance, it’s time to check on thorazine supplies.

When Rep. Cynthia McKinney first broached this idea before the 2002 primary election, it was considered so nutty it helped make her former Rep. McKinney. Today the Democratic presidential front-runner professes agnosticism as to whether the president of the United States was tipped off about 9/11 by the Saudis, and it goes unnoticed. The virus is spreading.
==========
Meaning of term

Krauthammer defined Bush Derangement Syndrome as "the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency—nay—the very existence of George W. Bush". This term is most closely associated with liberal reaction to Bush policies past and present.[2][3] While Krauthammer's column was somewhat tongue-in-cheek (e.g., "What is worrying epidemiologists about the Dean incident, however, is that heretofore no case had been reported in Vermont, or any other dairy state"), the term indicates a belief that some extreme criticisms of President Bush are of emotional origins rather than based on facts or logic. The term has been widely adopted by other writers in the political arena

The GOP bears most of the blame for the economic woes over the past twelve years whether it was unfunded tax cuts, two unfunded wars, obstructing job creation, the credit downgrade, sequestration, and now the impending fiscal cliff. "

Al-Qaeda helps USA solve its problems
06.12.2012

Washington has recently stated the intention to finish "the war on terrorism". The activities of Al-Qaeda should be controlled by special services and the police. These are significant statements and good intentions, aren't they? But why were they made now? Did the Americans stop being afraid of the "ghost of terrorism" that frequents their country?

Increasingly more experts recently shared the opinion that the American struggle against "Al-Qaeda" was of a selective nature and in some cases turned into a collaboration for the sake of achieving common goals. According to a Turkish Admiral Türker Ertyurka, Syria is filled with terrorists of all stripes, but "Al-Qaeda" that committed a number of large acts of terrorism in this country is supported by the USA. This was also stated by a columnist of The Daily Telegraph Peter Oborne. He reported that recently the UK and U.S. have been secretly cooperating with "Al-Qaeda" and led a joint struggle against the Syrian authorities.

A year earlier in the course of the campaign to overthrow Gaddafi in Libya, the United Kingdom and the U.S. supported the Libyan Islamic combat group that is a branch of "Al-Qaeda." As discovered later from the reports of American diplomats published by WikiLeaks, militants of LIFG took part in combat actions in Iraq and Afghanistan.

It should be noted that the cooperation between "Al-Qaeda" and the U.S. has a long history. After introduction of the USSR troops to Afghanistan, the USA, hiding behind the struggle for the independence of Afghanistan, began using Saudi Arabia Islamists as a shock force against the USSR. "Al-Qaeda" became a militant force with the U.S. assistance. American transnational corporations and Islamists have one common enemy - independent countries, and they are fighting with them together.

Well, the first issue, is actually acknowledging that, that attitude is "counterproductive" to the progress of this country instead of defending it.
Republicans that don't feel that way are not at fault that particular attitude.
I haven't seen any Dems with that attitude Posit. Why would they support Obama just to see him fail??
I hope you do not mind if I respond. I cannot speak for every Republican and will not try to. My own opinion is I do not want America to fail. I do not even want this President to fail. I would have loved if Obama had a successful first term.

This is where the "attitude" comes from. In my opinion he DID NOT have a successful first term. Far from it. I personally do not like his policies or his arrogance. It is my belief he has failed this country. As a result, I do not believe the next 4 years will be any better.

Do I sit back quietly and say nothing or do I voice my concerns and displeasure? I have chosen to speak up. I want this country to succeed if not for me, for my children and grandchildren. In my opinion, the next 4 years are not promising. I fear Obama's economic and foreign policies will cripple us.

It is time to ostracize Obama supporters
19.10.2012
...
Obama supporters have had 4 years to learn who and what Obama is. They refuse to look at evidence and can only respond with threats, insults and ridicule. Three weeks of education before the election will not educate them to do what is best for our country. So, forget them.

By supporting Obama, they are wholeheartedly advocating that many of us be put in jail and/or murdered, with no charges filed, no evidence, no witnesses, no lawyers and no trial by our peers. They are promoting the destruction of the American economy, less employment, more foreclosures, more taxpayer money being spent on insane projects that are designed to fail for all but the promoters. They fight for more illegal wars and the senseless murders of innocent civilians in far away countries. They lie to us and they threaten us with physical harm. They won't be happy until they have seen us lose everything we have worked and fought for.
Obama supporters insist on destroying all that is good and decent in this world.

We can survive and prosper very well without Obama supporters. But without us to support their morally corrupt lifestyles, they will perish. So, forget them.

Obamacare is a lie, it is diabolical and it does have a "Death Panel". Un-elected employees will determine whether or not a person gets treatment, with the only qualification being: Cost to the government. By supporting Obama, his supporters are forcing us into a painful life and an early grave.

There are two words that dominate any conversation about Obama: Liar and [Derogatory expletive denoting a no good dirty rotten low life scoundrel person of color]

Good, decent, honest, patriotic Americans have been called racist so many times these past four years that it has become a non-word, gaining no reaction. Obama and his supporters have played the race card so many times that the deck is out of cards. It's a new game. We don't care what they think. We don't care if they are offended and we don't care if they lose their taxpayer paid for goodies.
...
Democrats voted against freeing slaves, voted against giving them the right to vote, voted against Civil Rights in the 1960s. Republicans voted for all of that.

Obama is an Affirmative Action President. It doesn't work. He is the prime example that it doesn't work. The woman we are supposed to believe is his wife is an Affirmative Action lawyer who lost her license to practice law in 1993. Her Princeton thesis is pure racist anti-white ravings of someone so out of touch with reality that it can only be described as bizarre, even though it is whites who created her path to go to an Ivy League university.

Edgar Poe and the 'infantine imbecility' of American society
04.12.2012
By Nicolas Bonnal

Some writers and bright minds that happen to criticize a little the great character of American civilization are brutally sentenced to silence and thus ignored by media conspiracies. Others, like Tocqueville, discover that America is a champion in the art of ignoring the critical mind: No writer, whatever be his eminence, can escape from this tribute of adulation.

Of course, many American geniuses, before this term was spoiled par mass culture and modern media, already had a very bad perception of their country. But it was far ago... The first great American writer, who was also a great reporter, is, of course, Edgar Allan Poe, always marginalized by Yankee school subculture (and you will soon understand why), who was deified by French writers like Mallarmé and his well-known translator Baudelaire, one of the inventors of modern poetry.
...
As later would write the great Lovecraft, Poe denounces the risks of this modernity intertwined with pollution and ugliness, both being the results of scientific knowledge. In a somewhat pompous and ironic style, Edgar Poe writes so:

Yet this evil sprang necessarily from the leading evil, Knowledge. Man could not both know and succumb. Meantime huge smoking cities arose, innumerable. Green leaves shrank before the hot breath of furnaces. The fair face of Nature was deformed as with the ravages of some loathsome disease.

The physical destruction of the world through the forces of capitalism and technical progress, the industrialization too of education, leads to the worst of horrors: the loss of taste.

But now it appears that we had worked out our own destruction in the perversion of our taste, or rather in the blind neglect of its culture in the schools.

This was for Monos and Una. But let's talk with the mummy!
...
Of course, like many great reactionary minds of his romantic and passionate time, Edgar Poe is fully opposed to any improvement, believing in more royal or medieval times. In this aspect he looks like Pushkin or Gogol, not to mention Hugo and less famous French authors. I humbly confess that sometimes the progress gets on my nerves, thanks to the greenhouse effects, airport's boutiques, fake elections and universal dumbness. Of course a gentleman must adapt his soul and manners to such miserable time (the American one). In conclusion, I think that nobody ever had better words about the progress than the count:

The Count merely said that Great Movements were awfully common things in his day, and as for Progress, it was at one time quite a nuisance, but it never progressed.

That's the point, dear reader: progress never progresses. Progress can't!

Nobody in charge at office that inspected Benghazi security

The State Department has gone without an inspector general for four years, raising concerns that the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Libya could have been averted or, at least, more thoroughly investigated if President Barack Obama had filled the post during his first term.

The last head of the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of State was Howard Krongard, who retired in January 2008.

Since Krongard’s departure, the critical role of overseeing an office charged with investigating instances of fraud, waste and mismanagement in the State Department has gone unfilled.
...
According to the OIG’s website, a key duty of the inspector general is to ensure the safety of State Department facilities:“OIG performs specialized security inspections and audits in support of the Department’s mission to provide effective protection to our personnel, facilities, and sensitive information.”

“The sheriff is out of town,” John Malcolm, senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Now "gzeena"... Jack hasn't SPOKE yet! Not ONE word yet!
I will though via several questions UNRELATED..."what is going on with Benghazi?"
What is really going on with this OVER spending of money we do not have, while making policy to SPEND more? How does that get this country on track to success as for debt control? How will all the entitlements be paid for when the dollar is worth nothing-as it is on that track at a fast pace?
Benghazi appears to be a small thorn in Obama's side. He'll sweep it under the rug and eventually most people will forget about it and those who demand answers will be hopelessly convinced that justice is a thing of the past. Obama is not man enough to man up and tell the families of the deceased and the public that his administration failed miserably. The father of one of the SEALS said Obama wouldn't look him in the eye or offer him sincere condolences and that Obama's handshake was like that of a dead fish but hey, on the brighter side, he got four more years!

I'm sorry but no one needs a trillion plus dollars a year. Did you ever see "High Plains Drifter"? Clint Eastwood's nameless character wrecked a town, turned it's people against each other and had the town's people paint their own town red, "Especially the church" literally. In the end, the town named Lago was appropriately renamed HELL. Obama is doing the same thing to this country but this is no movie.

This country will be going farther off the track while our economy goes over "the cliff" because Obama has everything to gain. He "needs" a trillion a year. If he doesn't get it, it will be the Republicans fault. The tax on the rich will prove to be a tax on everyone except the broke. Raising everyone's taxes will do nothing to lower "the debt" but the Obama administration will have more disposable cash. The answer to your second question, it won't.

It's been said well, "Socialism is great until you run out of someone else's money".
