I just ran through an article over at Fox News that discusses the Romney Derangement Syndrome.
For those unfamiliar with this illness, symptoms include an inability to launch successful political attacks, a loss of focus for real issues, and constant weak hits against your opponent because you’re so weak that you can’t actually succeed with your own record.
President Obama is sick.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like we’ll have a cure for our president – except for, of course, removing him from office with the power of democratic elections. Which will indeed happen.
In fact, now that I think about it, almost all liberals seem to have RDS. They keep making false arguments about the 1% vs 99%, Big Oil subsidies (which don’t exist), modern “Jim Crow laws” – it’s all reeking of desperation. When you’re desperate, you’ll make the most ridiculous claims with the biggest rhetoric possible in order to score points. They’re waving their bloody shirts at us, really – but it doesn’t seem as though they’re winning the narrative. The age of the Internet has not, as some stupid YouTube commentators have told me, decreased conservatism, but has empowered us. Now, more than ever, we can share the exact details of cruel abortion procedures. We can create economic models and predict future deficits. We can keep textbook writers from rewriting history by giving a voice to what has really happened in our country.
Oh yes, the RDS is widespread among the left. Let’s keep it that way. We’ll win.
