We all know Barack Obama is the chosen one, worshipped by millions. He can do no wrong. Whatever he says is magic and transcendental, casting a spell over his following. If he says two plus two is six, it is. If you disagree, you are a racist and a hater. (Actually, he probably does believe in that calculation given his incompetence in managing the nation’s finances.)
Liberalism in general is not a philosophy that demands great intellectual exercise. In fact, it’s not a philosophy. It’s an emotion driven reaction to circumstance (for example, “free” health care to those who can’t afford it, although logic tells us nothing is free). It’s default answer to every problem is to redistribute wealth, expand government and restrict liberty.
A terrific illustration of this was the president’s campaign rally with “free” (i.e., taxpayer funded) contraception advocate Sandra Fluke Wednesday in Boulder, Colorado (see Caroline May at The Daily Caller). After the rally, Caleb Bonham of RevealingPolitics.com asked the Obamabots who attended two simple questions. The first was a no-brainer (at least to the ‘bots). The second , which introduced logic, short circuited their wires. If you look closely, you’ll see smoke emanating from their ears. Enjoy.
Should the government stay out of the bedroom? “Yes!”
Then why should government pay for your contraception? “Uhhhh, because Obama says so?”
