Satire by John W. Lillpop
Although I am neither a psychologist nor psychiatrist, it seems to me that our once young and vigorous president has been worn to a frazzle.
It is called "burn out" in layman's terms, and middle-aged men who are having problems on the job are most vulnerable to this insidious disorder.
When you think about it, President Obama has every reason in the world to be overwhelmed and frazzled.
After all, working 24/7 to destroy America's social, economic, educational, and cultural institutions, all of which have survived for 233 years, is no menial task.
Attempting to CHANGE everything in seven months would wear out any idealist-plagued Marxist, regardless of age, health, or grit.
Even those whom would normally support Obama on health care, for example, are speaking out against throwing another $1.3 trillion dollars at the problem without intelligent planning, reasonable debate, and consideration of the impact on an economy that is still in recession.
As reported, in part, at Yahoo news, Senator Joe Lieberman hit the nail on the head with his remarks:
"An independent senator counted on by Democrats in the health care debate showed signs of wavering Sunday when he urged President Barack Obama to postpone many of his initiatives because of the economic downturn.
"I'm afraid we've got to think about putting a lot of that off until the economy's out of recession," said Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman. "There's no reason we have to do it all now, but we do have to get started. And I think the place to start is cost health delivery reform and insurance market reforms."
The Senator is exactly right. Attempting a costly remake of health care would be a huge mistake during a recession and would be completely reckless and irresponsible.
President Obama needs to add the word "WAIT!" to his teleprompter scripts!
So what exactly is a left wing extremist addicted to wasteful spending to do when burn out shuts him down?
How about some well-deserved time off in a $20 million luxury estate in a paradise where only the filthy rich dare tread?
Take a few cartons of Pall Mall unfiltered longs with you, sir, and share a few private "wee-wee'' moments with Michelle and the girls.
Stay as long as you like, Mr. President.
In fact, your approval ratings might benefit if you remained sequestered at Martha's Vineyard for, say, three or four months.
Have a great time, sir, and focus on CHANGE--to that wrong minded liberalism which has left you befuddled and in a quagmire of your own making.
