Recent events make it clear that we need to question Obama’s competency to hold office. I don’t mean is he inept, I mean is he mentally and emotionally competent to hold office? Obama will not, and probably emotionally cannot, take responsibility for his own actions and words. By now everybody knows he made a calculated political decision and purposefully lied to the American people in order to pass Obamacare.
No amount of torture to the facts will change them. What is now clearly evident is that he has real difficulty taking responsibility for anything he says or does. Even if you love Obama you can’t ignore this fact. There are dozens of video accounts of Obama making this clear declarative promise to the American people in order to get them to urge their congress persons to enact Obamacare. “If you like your current insurance, you keep that insurance." In every case it made it very clear with no “ifs” “ands” or “buts.”
NBC, not noted for being anti-Obama, also released news showing proof that Obama and his administration knew that Obamacare would result in MILLIONS of people being forced out of their individual insurance plans. Knowing the truth at the time he repeatedly promised America “If you like your current insurance, you keep that insurance" without putting in any qualifying “ifs” “ands” or “buts” leads to a clear and unambiguous conclusion: Obama purposefully made a calculated decision to lie and mislead the American people.
Obama knew if he told the truth his chosen path to reach his clearly stated goal of single payer government controlled health care would falter, so he clearly and purposefully lied to the American people. Now that he has been caught and exposed, even as a lame-duck who that cannot be reelected and doesn’t have to run for office, he won’t admit to the truth that he and everybody else knows. If it weren’t real and so costly to our society and culture, you might think it’s funny; Substitute a Dead Parrot for Obamacare and you feel like you’re watching an old Monty Python sketch.
This week he again lied saying, "Now, if you had one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law and you really liked that plan, what we said was you can keep it if it hasn't changed since the law passed."
That isn’t what he said, that isn’t what he implied, that isn’t what he meant; I know it, you know it, the press knows it, Obama’s administration knows it, and Obama knows it. He made a promise loud and clear that he knew was a lie, and now that it’s exposed he isn’t man enough, strong enough, or honest enough to own it. He sold us a Dead Parrot.
Most parents won’t even tolerate that from their 6 year old child; from the man elected to the highest office in the land, it’s unacceptable, despicable, immature, self deluded, irrational behavior. When an adult is confronted with clear uncontroversial video evidence of their lies, and maintain that they weren’t lying, something is clearly wrong. Obama needs help, he’s got a sick mind and obviously suffers from some kind of delusion. He needs professional help. You’ve heard of a “Napoleon Complex” haven’t you? There have been a lot of leaders throughout history who have become obviously mentally unstable, Caligula comes to mind.
In this day and age with our advanced psychological diagnostics and counseling techniques, I’m sure he can be helped, maybe use electroshock therapy. In Florida we have the “Baker Act” where a person whose mental stability makes us suspect that they are a danger to themselves or others can be involuntarily locked up. In as much as his decisions can be imminently dangerous to massive numbers of people it is clear that we should Baker Act Obama.
