New heights of delusion on the Left

I seriously think that most of the American Left, never a bastion of sanity and reason to begin with, has completely gone off their rockers. Exhibit A: The Ed Show on MSNBC (Why is it that when MSNMC rolls out leftist partisan after leftist partisan, that is "journalism" but when Fox News has conservative commentators it is the worst thing that has ever happened to America?) Watch this clip where the failed bid to land the Olympics is all the fault of Republicans and cost America untold millions of jobs, union jobs no less (we apparently need jobs, but we really need union jobs)

This knucklehead seems to think that a) Not supporting Obama=lack of patriotism and b) Getting or not getting the Olympics is an important issue. Remember when conservatives were excoriated for suggestions that not backing the war on terror was unpatriotic? Now we see that allegedly not supporting the Olympics effort where we came in dead last is borderline treason.

This guy may be one of the most delusional people I have seen on the Left and that is saying something. I have no idea who he is but clearly any nutjob with a loud voice can get his own show on MSNBC. Apparently not throwing all of our warm and fuzzy thoughts behind Obama’s failed pitch for Chicago to host the Olympics is the same thing as Hanoi Jane Fonda sitting on the same gun that North Vietnamese communists used to shoot down American pilots.

I especially loved this line:

“When Obama fails, America fails”

Seriously. When George H.W. Bush lost his reelection bid, America did not fail. When a political leader fails, it is not the end of America. The Obama agenda is not the defining standard of failure or success for America. The messianic complex held by the Left would be funny if they weren’t poised to do so much damage to America. Barack Obama is just a guy. Granted he is President like forty some odd men before him and thus far he has been a pretty mediocre and inefficient one, but America will survive and perhaps even thrive if Obama fails to seize the means of production in America and America will survive long after Obama leaves office. Quit kissing his ring and use your minds for a change.
