Charles Krauthammer’s hi-larious take on the ‘ungrateful masses’:
In an increasingly desperate attempt to develop a narrative for the coming Democratic collapse, the Democrats have indulged themselves in what for half a century they’ve habitually attributed to the American right — the paranoid style in American politics. The talk is of dark conspiracies — secret money, foreign influence, big corporations, with Karl Rove and, yes, Ed Gillespie lurking ominously behind the scenes. The only thing missing is the Halliburton-Cheney angle.
But after trotting out some of these charges with a noticeable lack of success, President Obama has come up with something new, something less common, something more befitting his stature and intellect. He’s now offering a scientific, indeed neurological, explanation for his current political troubles. The electorate apparently is deranged by its anxieties and fears to the point where it can’t think straight. Part of the reason “facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time,” he explained to a Massachusetts audience, “is because we’re hard-wired not to always think clearly when we’re scared. And the country is scared.”
Opening a whole new branch of cognitive science — liberal psychology — Obama has discovered a new principle: The fearful brain is hard-wired to act befuddled, i.e., vote Republican.
But of course. Here Obama has spent two years bestowing upon the peasantry the “New Foundation” of a more regulated, socially engineered and therefore more humane society, and they repay him with recalcitrance and outright opposition. Here he gave them Obamacare, the stimulus, financial regulation and a shot at cap-and-trade — and the electorate remains not just unmoved but ungrateful.
Faced with this truly puzzling conundrum, Dr. Obama diagnoses a heretofore undiscovered psychological derangement: anxiety-induced Obama Underappreciation Syndrome, wherein an entire population is so addled by its economic anxieties as to be neurologically incapable of appreciating the “facts and science” undergirding Obamacare and the other blessings their president has bestowed upon them from on high.

Obama’s messianic complex hasn’t waned a bit since the leftwing MSM annointed him to run in 2008.
THE ONE has declared that any and all opponents to his “fundamental transformation” of America are suffering from paranoia.
From what I can see, it’s Obama and his gang of Dem autocrats that are shitting their diapers in fright. They are genuinely scared of an informed electorate that objects to their hubris, abuse of power, and criminal behavior.
Let’s see: 15% unemployment (that number includes those who simply stopped looking for work), a $13 trillion debt, a trade deficit of $109 billion, an $814 billion “stimulus”, $787 billion dollars in taxpayer funded bailouts, government takeovers of banks, auto industry, insurance corporations, and health care, and making our country safer for muslim terrorists.
But we’re just plain crazy for not being grateful for everything he’s done for us.
That’s gratitude for ya.
