Wow! The following article is certainly chilling... very chilling in fact! What makes it all the more important to read and pay attention to is the fact that the writer admits to being a recovering liberal!
The Shock of Barack
posted by null at American Thinker - 11 hours ago
I've been feeling funky since Black Sunday, the day of the health care debacle. As a therapist, I'm usually able to identify my feelings. But this one had left me stumped.
It took a conversation with a conservative friend, Nancy, for me to pinpoint the feeling. Nancy told me that a Jewish co-worker, a staunch Obama supporter, was feeling "shell-shocked" by Obama's vilifying Israel.
Bingo. That's what it is: stunned, shell-shocked, traumatized.
[T]rauma means witnessing something that humans are not designed to see, a horror that is more than the self can absorb. The brutality of war, a gruesome crime scene, the sudden death of a loved one. Or the evil that unfolds through unchecked power yielded by megalomaniacs.
For me, trauma was that cloudless November day, years ago, when I exited an Oakland restaurant at noon and soon thereafter, lay prone on the concrete, bloody and broken.
Just moments before, I had looked into the eyes of a man who didn't know that I was human, or who knew but didn't care. I saw something sinister in him, but I ignored my gut. I was still steeped in liberal political correctness and didn't want to appear racially insensitive.
When I see what Obama is doing to this country, how he is treating its citizens, I'm reminded of the man who mugged me. I think that both are constitutionally incapable of seeing our humanity. And each day that Obama is in office, he communicates this same deadly message to the masses -- that opponents are not human.
This would explain the burgeoning of hate and even violence towards those who deign to disagree. And why Tea Party members and conservatives are being targeted, as well as entire countries like Israel.
And this would illuminate why Obama is unfazed while the economy crashes. And why he cavalierly demonizes Israel, putting millions of Israelis at risk. And it explains why Obama mocks conservatives who are legitimately worried about this administration's violating fundamental rights.
But how could Obama see us? Did anyone in his childhood ever see him?
Read it all here.
From what I have seen this last year, Obama shows no ability to walk in another person's shoes. This would require empathy and sensitivity, traits that are nowhere to be found.
Frankly, every time I see Obama, I catch a glimpse of the man who mugged me.
And that, to me, is the true danger and horror and shock of Barack.

In my mind, the sentence that ultimately describes all of the corruption, contempt, cheating, lying, bribing, threats, dishonesty, hatred, race-baiting, targeting, betrayal, attacks, abuses, looting of American taxpayers, contempt towards Israel, infliction of Marxism, appeasement of terrorists and rogue nations, and all the rest of the unconstitutional acts that are being wielded upon the American people by this despicable gangster government can be described in the 5 most descriptive words chosen from the article for the title of this post:
