My Storify mini-rant on what happens if Donald Trump wins the nomination.
Do not fall in love with politicians. They will only break your heart.Read More »
Ever tried to break up with a controlling and abusive boyfriend or girlfriend? It can get real scary depending on how dysfunctional they are.
They have a hard time listening to what you’re trying to tell them because they are so caught up in their own impenetrable world. Speaking with certitude and a level of arrogance that is hard to relate to for the average person, by the time one realizes just how wrapped up in themselves this self-loving person is, finding a way out can become tricky. Not only can it become tricky — as we have seen with so many who actually resort to murder to stop their prey from leaving them, it can get down-right dangerous.
That’s how it’s starting to feel with Obama. He just doesn’t get what a bad fit he is for America. He is getting scary as he doubles-down on his hateful rhetoric and insulting euphemisms — designed to force his version of transformation on the rest of us — whether we like it or want it or not. Like any rapist who feels entitled to have their way with their victim, or jealous girlfriend who imagines unfaithfulness to the point of relentless false accusations, Obama refuses to accept the word “no.”
He’s so out of touch with reality that he has no clue how abusive and destructive his words are sounding to the rest of us. Or, sadly, I should say to most of us who are still healthy enough to recognize abuse when we see it. There is a small minority who will agree with him no matter what he says or does. But, fortunately, I think those who are still infatuated with him are becoming a smaller and smaller minority of like-minded miscreants.
But, for the rest of us, it’s time for Obama to get a clue.
Hey, listen, Mr. President. We’re just not that into you, okay? No, forget the okay. He won’t be able to accept that. We just need to say, ‘Goodbye, Mr. President. Time to move on now.’
