Republican Fever

According to Atlantic (whose motto is “What Matters Now”), President Obama told high-profile “donors like Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake, and Tommy Hilfiger that Washington gridlock is pretty much Rush Limbaugh’s fault Monday evening at a fundraiser at Harvey Weinstein’s house in New York’s Greenwich Village.

Obama admitted that his theory — that after the 2012 election, the Republican ‘fever’ would break, and they’d decide to co-sign some of his agenda — was wrong.

“My thinking was when we beat them in 2012 that might break the fever, and it’s not quite broken yet,” Obama said, according to the White House pool report.  The lingering symptoms of the fever are due to a certain “corpulent” radio host.

“I genuinely believe there are Republicans out there who would like to work with us but they’re fearful of their base and they’re concerned about what Rush Limbaugh might say about them. And as a consequence we get the kind of gridlock that makes people cynical about government.”

Again, that’s skeptical, not cynical.  Skepticism is the antidote to “Progressive Fever”.

“In June 2012, Obama had predicted that being a lame duck would actually be a perk. He told donors:

“I believe that if we’re successful in this election, when we’re successful in this election, that the fever may break, because there’s a tradition in the Republican Party of more common sense than that,…

“My hope, my expectation, is that after the election, now that it turns out that the goal of beating Obama doesn’t make much sense because I’m not running again, that we can start getting some cooperation again.”

And if Republicans refuse to cooperate? Atlantic Wire asked.  “Well, unlike the president, they (the Republicans) do face reelection. Obama suggested he would crush them in the midterms.

“If there are folks who are more interested in winning elections than they are thinking about the next generation then I want to make sure there are consequences to that.”

Obama was so interested in winning the election to the Illinois state senate that he used unorthodox, indeed, ruthless means, to eliminate his opponents, including revealing confidential documents regarding one candidate’s divorce.

Atlantic Wire reports that Obama left Weinstein’s home for another DNC fundraiser at the home of Alexandra Stanton in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood, before a DCCC/DSCC event at the Waldorf Astoria, capping a busy day in which he addressed the dueling IRS and Benghazi scandals and maybe even cried.

The symptoms of “Republican Fever” include delusions, such as believing that Hispanics and feminists will vote for them; hallucinations, as in shaking hands with opponents across the aisle; self-destructive behavior, including signing dangerous legislation authored by Democrats and appearing on Democrat-slanted news shows; tremors, when they listen to skewed polls favoring the Democrats; denial; paranoia, i.e., they’re losing because of their Conservative base and discrediting radio and television pundits who are trying to help them get back on the right track.

Brain damage can occur.  Conservative therapists suggest such activities as reading the U.S. Constitution; re-reading John Locke, Alexander de Tocqueville, and Adam Smith; and watching movies like Braveheart, The Longest Day, and High Noon.  The first two are true stories.  Another therapy is to read the stories on the Medal of Honor website.  They must be encouraged to overcome their fear of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck.  Meeting these two men in person would probably reassure them that their phobia is unjustified, the product of Democrat propaganda with no basis in reality.

Rush and Glenn have learned what they know from the Founding Fathers’ reading list.  They serve as broadcasting ombudsman.  Rush may seem singular, but he has a well-trained staff investigating the stories of the day for him, which he then analyzes and reports upon.  Glenn Beck’s broadcasting network is expanding.  His channel is to be broadcast on Optimum Cablevision in the New York City area by the end of the month, the very market area from which he was once evicted.  Rush’s broadcasting numbers are outstanding.  He’s so successful, he’s considering leaving the New York City market area because he doesn’t need it.

Conservatism is the antidote to “Republican Fever.”  The Republicans, in feverish denial, are resisting the cure.  Democrats are in a panic that Conservative researchers are on the threshold of a breakthrough in curing the brainwashing.

No wonder the Media reported that Obama was crying at some recent event.
