“Quite Mentally Unwell,” And Other News *Open Thread*

by

So says a Diplomat from the European Union regarding – wait for it – President Obama.

You don’t say. That is something many of us have thought for some time given a numebr of actions Obama has undertaken during his reign, but that one of our partners abroad think so is telling.

And there is more. From BizPacReview:

The government of a European country allegedly believes that President Barack Obama is ‘quite mentally unwell’ and should be removed from office because he is unfit to serve as president.

Daily Beast columnist John Schindler tweeted that a senior EU diplomat questioned how impeachment works in the United States because of his/her government’s belief about Obama’s mental health.

“Had a senior EU diplomat, old friend, ask me today, “How does your impeachment work? My government believes Obama is quite mentally unwell.” […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Holy moley, huh? That our allies in Europe have this impression of our President, to the point of asking just how we can impeach him, speaks VOLUMES. Of course, that Obama continues to enjoy as much support as he does from Democrats in this country speaks volumes, too. We are going down the rabbit hole, it seems.

No where was that more in evidence than the Democratic Debate on Tuesday night. Never mind the Democratic Socialist (isn’t that what Nazis were?) Bernie Sanders, how about THIS line from presumptive nominee, Hillary Clinton? From NRO:

Asked last night to name “enemies” of which she was “proud,” Hillary Clinton rattled off a list that included “Republicans.”

I haven’t seen a great deal of discussion about this in the aftermath of the debate, and I must say that I’m slightly surprised about that. It’s one thing to say you’re proud that, say, the NRA is your enemy; you can always explain that you respect gun owners and the Second Amendment but oppose the “crazies.” But the other majority political party in the country? The party for which almost half of voters pull the lever? That’s not smart. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

No kidding it isn’t smart, but the reaction from those present at the debate spoke VOLUMES. That is the level of divisiveness for which we can thank President Obama and the Democrats. I recall back in 2008 Clinton claiming she worked well with her opponents across the aisle. But now that she has likened Republicans to terrorists and referred to them as her enemies, I am thinking that ain’t gonna happen now…

Finally, since I began with Obama, let me conclude with Obama. This week, Obama made even more incendiary remarks about Republicans, terrorists CHRISTIANS. Yes, those Bible-carrying, intolerant, hateful Christians, not ISIS, not Putin, not Russia, not Iran, not Syria, but CHRISTIANS. From the Daily Mail:

[…] With himself directing the discussion and asking the questions, Obama told Robinson at one point, according to the NYRB transcript:

The President: You’ve struggled with the fact that here in the United States, sometimes Christian interpretation seems to posit an “us versus them,” and those are sometimes the loudest voices. But sometimes I think you also get frustrated with kind of the wishy-washy, more liberal versions where anything goes.

Robinson: Yes.

The President: How do you reconcile the idea of faith being really important to you and you caring a lot about taking faith seriously with the fact that, at least in our democracy and our civic discourse, it seems as if folks who take religion the most seriously sometimes are also those who are suspicious of those not like them?

Robinson: Well, I don’t know how seriously they do take their Christianity, because if you take something seriously, you’re ready to encounter difficulty, run the risk, whatever. I mean, when people are turning in on themselves—and God knows, arming themselves and so on—against the imagined other, they’re not taking their Christianity seriously. I don’t know—I mean, this has happened over and over again in the history of Christianity, there’s no question about that, or other religions, as we know.

But Christianity is profoundly counterintuitive—“Love thy neighbor as thyself”—which I think properly understood means your neighbor is as worthy of love as you are, not that you’re actually going to be capable of this sort of superhuman feat. But you’re supposed to run against the grain. It’s supposed to be difficult. It’s supposed to be a challenge. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Sigh. It really does not seem to stop with President Obama when it comes to attacking Christians, sometimes overtly, sometimes boldly. It boggles the mind, especially when you consider what is happening all across the world at the hands of a religious group, and it AIN’T Christians.

Greg Gutfeld from “The Five” had a great response to Obama’s questions, and really nailed him on his, well, “quite mentally unwell” mindset:

I couldn’t have said it better myself.

That’s it for me. What’s on your minds today? This is an Open Thread.

    I think Obama is mentally unwell in the same way that all narcissists are mentally unwell. Such people cannot function normally. And such people, would hate an entity like FOX News that was a hold out to the kowtowing.

    I don’t know what you call the mental illness FLOTUS exhibits in her constant anger and feelings of being treated poorly. Even being First Lady hasn’t satisfied her.

    Perhaps this couple truly needs a pair of thrones, a throne room and people on their knees before them to be happy. And let’s not forget the dungeons for those that don’t bow low enough.

      ROTFLMAO abt the photos – those are fantastic!

      And you are right – Michelle had a decent upbringing, got to go to not one, but TWO, Ivy league schools, and she acts all put upon. WTH??

      True that narcissists are, by definition, “mentally unwell,” but I’m not sure that is Obama’s ONLY problem. 🙂

      He is Nutty as a fruitcake. 😦

    • mcnorman Says:

      They barely figured out that he is mentally unwell? His goal in life (aside from destroying the US) is to play with golf balls all day long. His vile other half requires a crew of 27+ assistants to get her through the day.

  2. kenoshamarge Says:

    I might add that I think the Clinton supporters are also mentally ill Nuts even.

    Get these headlines from the media sycophants about the Dem Debate:

    “Hillary crushed it with Spectacular Performance” slobbers Charles Blow of the New York Times

    “Real winner in Vegas was the Democrat Party” says ever reliable mouthpiece Lanny Davis.

    ” Hillary Clinton’s Democratic Debate Magic” coos Frank Bruni, New York Times

    I could go on but you get the picture. Many Americans that were busy watching NCIS while the debate was droning on will take the word of these media types and discuss how wonderful the debate was both for her majesty and for the party as if they had actually watched. Ignorance is bliss they say.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Oh, my WORD – are you kidding me with this? It is clear the fix is in for Hillary by the media this time the same way it was for Obama in 2008 and 2012.

      Those headlines above and below really say it all.

    • mcnorman Says:

      HRC die hard supporters are not dealing with reality. They refuse to see what is in front of them. BTW, that answer about the difference between teh won and herself was utterly ridiculous. We know she is a woman. What the country wanted to know is whether she has the skill set to lead this country and that has nothing to do with whether she is a woman.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        Exactly, mcnorman. Being a woman, just like being biracial, is NOT a sufficient endorsement for ANYONE to get a job, much less the Leader of the Free World. Clinton had zero control over her gender, like Obama had over who his parents were. It is ridiculous that people are willing to hand over the keys based on something that isn’t an accomplishment. Wow…

  3. kenoshamarge Says:

    Oops, found two more butt kisser media types to add to the list above:

    CNN’s Van Jones declared Clinton’s performance to be “flawless” and compared her to Beyoncé.

    Mark Halperin gave Clinton a perfect A.

    “Flawless?” Seriously?

    And a “perfect A?” Again that isn’t a serious response to her bobbing and weaving and lying. But they’re media so why expect honesty or the truth?

    it seems to me that the sane, wide awake, Americans left the democratic party in 2008. We were the unwanted because we asked questions and did not follow blindly. It was a rude awakening and it hurt but for me I am glad it happened. Can you imagine looking at your self in the mirror and being part of the democratic party as it is today?

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      I think you are right, Helen, and I am glad I did. It was a VERY difficult decision for me, as I am sure it was for many. I had identified as a Dem. since I was a child, and realizing how the Party had changed, the depths it was willing to go to declare the nominee regardless of who the people wanted opened my eyes in a big way. It has only gone downhill ever since.

      What I don’t get are all the Democrats who seem more than willing to accept the Democratic Party is now a Socialist Party. WTH??

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      We left because we refused to compromise our integrity just to belong to some damn political party. And we are better for it IMO. At the time it was difficult because being a Democrat was part of my identity that I had carried for all of my adult life.

      Now I am free at last, free at last, thank God almighty I’m free at last!

      And no Helen, I could not look at myself in the mirror if I supported what the Democrats have become.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        Amen, sister, amen! I know I have said before that there were warning signs, like how Pelosi acted once she got the Speaker position, but I ignored them because, well, you know – Republicans were evil! Ahem. (I consider myself Independent, just for the record.)

        I couldn’t look at myself, either…

    Thieves, Liars and Idiots: The Two Hour Democratic Debate

    “A little bit of this town goes a very long way,” Hunter S. Thompson said. “After five days in Vegas you feel like you’ve been here for five years.”

    That went triple for the miserable parade of hypocrisies that was the Democratic debate where a gaggle of establishment political hacks claimed to be the voice of political change and where men and women whose combined net worth could break banks ranted about the rich in a debate hosted in a $2.7 billion dollar luxury resort and casino with its own Ferrari dealership so that the candidates can take a break from their income inequality spiels to test drive a 2015 Maserati GranTurismo.

    The Democratic debate only ran hours, but it seemed to last for years as the Democratic Party’s crazy Socialist grandpa Bernie Sanders nervously waved his hands, struggled to follow the answers of the other candidates and talked about himself in the third person.

    Democrats Debate: Two Hours I’ll Never Get Back

    By Derek Hunter

    It’s over. The Democratic Party’s first debate just ended, and my main takeaway is how sad it is that the party of JFK has been reduced to five elderly white people arguing over who can out nut-job each other.

    For all his problems, Kennedy was a tax-cutting anti-communist who loved and defended this country whose values have no place in today’s Democratic Party.

    I don’t know what country those candidates were talking about, but it sounds awful. It has a rigged system that keeps down minorities, women, gays, men, aliens, animals, trees, anything living and most things dead. But somehow this horrible nation favors the rich. I’m not sure how they earn the money the rich steal from them since they’re so severely oppressed, but it all just sounds horrible.

    http://townhall.com/columnists/derekhunter/2015/10/15/democrats-debate-two-hours-ill-never-get-back-n2065771

    Hunter did have some praise for Jim Webb with which I totally agreed. It is also why I don’t think Webb has a chance in hell of being a Dem nominee. Besides, he didn’t promise a lot of free stuff.

    Aside from Jim Webb – who appears to have been in hibernation since the JFK days and still believes in what the Democratic Party once stood for – not a single candidate has any semblance of a realistic view of the world.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Outstanding – I literally LOLed over the “out nut-job each other…” Spot on!

      Thanks for this piece, Marge – Hunter nailed it!

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        I thought he did too. And like you I loved the “out nut-job each other line”. And yet the media is cheering as if it was wonderful. I don’t think all the nut-jobs were on the stage.

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          ROTFL, you just crack me up, Marge!

          I caught some of Niel Cavuto’s show on my drive up to Charleston this afternoon and heard him discuss with Mollie Hemingway the disparate way in which the MSM reported on the Dem. debate vs. the Rep. Debate. They referred to the Dems as the “adults.” Hemingway noted that the Reps actually discussed their philosophies on Foreign Policy, unlike the Dems, among other things. Just astonishing to see the difference in the way both parties are treated.

          And when I was a Dem., I thought the Reps were whiners abt the difference, but they were right…

    The history the left never tells the idiots that vote for them – nor does the media who’s job it is to inform but has chosen to propagandize

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Ain’t that the truth, Marge! It never ceases to amaze me how the people in this country who force people out of business if they do not bend to their will invite someone like Ahmadinejad to speak at Columbia, as I was reminded the other day. Because gay people are treated SO well in Afghanistan. The hypocrisy is staggering…
