Liberalomania: Don't Drink the Water in D.C.

As a mother, I am well versed in what I call the blame game. For years, someone named “Not Me” has been wreaking havoc on my home. And, since the birth of my son two years ago, my poor, perfectly immaculate children have cleaned up countless messes made by the elusive “He Did It.”

Considering I was once a young child and a sibling to four other young children, I think that makes me a blame game expert.  My experience gives me the knowledge that, like my siblings and me, my own children will grow out of the blame game and mature towards personal responsibility. And my research suggests that when an individual remains in a perpetual blame game state, he or she should be evaluated for a mental illness.

That’s why I am worried about the president.

Although it’s long been argued that liberalism in itself is a mental disorder, it usually remains relatively benign. However, if left untreated, the initial infection of liberalism could continue attacking the central nervous system.  In some cases, it takes over the entire reasoning center of the brain, and the full-blown disease, liberalomania, sets in.

Liberalomania is a progressive (no pun intended), degenerative form of dementia. Like megalomania and many other personality disorders, some of its characteristics are narcissism and delusions of grandeur.

Liberalomanics are master manipulators and skilled blame-gamers.  They not only create perceptions of victimization within themselves, but also succeed in cultivating similar feelings within their voting-aged followers. They see themselves as perfect beings, free from sin, who should therefore receive infinite entitlements. Believing in their superiority, they often are condescending and use manipulation to force others to submit to their will.

Like a cry for help, President Obama consistently shows signs of liberalomania.

The first sign is his limitless use of the blame game.  Most of the problems ailing Americans today are still blamed on the Bush administration. During the health care bill debate, Obama repeatedly pointed his finger at “Big Pharma,” health insurance companies, and even the nation’s physicians. Although he was a senator at the time, the financial meltdown was Wall Street’s fault and had nothing to do with our Democratic Congress’ failed policies for which he voted. And, he blames the tea party for lacking civil discourse while he uses words like “tea baggers,” insults groups and leaders around the globe, and demonizes those who do not share his ideologies.

Most recently, Obama has forsaken any accountability in the near escape of the suspect who attempted to bomb Times Square. From Obama’s viewpoint, allowing the bomber to board a plane and almost leave the country was the airline’s fault.  It was not the fault of the Obama administration and their failure to establish better communication within the multiple branches of Homeland Security.  It was not due to their policy of spending more time investigating the CIA and court-martialing the heroes of our Navy than collecting intelligence on terror organizations.  It was not due to a failure to update the no-fly list policy.  It was not due to the frowning upon of Islamic and Arab profiling.  And it was in no way a consequence of the apparent weakness shown by the president with regards to issues like nuclear weapons.

Secondly, Obama shows obvious signs of narcissism and appears to experience delusions of grandeur. Although sufferers of both liberalism and liberalomania are often ideologues of a utopian society, the nature of Obama’s vision is especially telling.  He projects himself as the one to bring about this utopia, and casts himself as the supreme president of the world.

Ignoring the will of the American people and legislating away our liberties is not just Obama’s way of serving up another piece of Democrap pie; his actions stem from his narcissistic mental instability. Narcissists are described as being “excessively preoccupied with issues of personal adequacy, power, and prestige.” This explains why Obama only writes books about himself, and why he wrote an autobiography before he had actually done anything worthwhile.  It also explains his permanent campaign mode.

Scarier than H1N1, liberalomania is reaching epidemic proportions in Washington.  Fortunately for the sake of our country, there are treatment options.

Doctors recommend taking a basic economics course, reading the Constitution, and ingesting hearty doses of conservative talk radio. Radio listeners who switched from Ed Schultz to Laura Ingraham had a 98% recovery rate.

Of course, prevention is the best medicine. Anyone over the age of 21 who still plays the blame game should consult a­ doctor. And although there is no vaccine currently on the market for liberalomania, doctors do have some suggestions of things to avoid in order to stay healthy.  One of the best things you can do to prevent an uncontrollable liberal infection is to stay away from propaganda.  This means avoiding CNN, MSNBC, most of the mainstream nightly news programs, and most importantly, the New York Times (warning: click these links at your own risk). And because the exact cause of such infections are still unknown, when visiting Washington, D.C., don’t drink the water.
