I have said for years that Obama Derangement Syndrome completely numbs the mind. You’re unable to see anything positive in the world if you suffer from ODS. Everything, every problem, is Barack Obama’s fault. Michele Bachmann is the latest example of Obama Derangement Syndrome. The former Congresswoman took to her Facebook page and stated, “With his Iran deal, Barack Obama is for the 3 million souls of the United States what Andreas Lubitz was for the 150 souls on the German wings flight – a deranged pilot flying his entire nation into the rocks. After the fact, among the smoldering remains of American cities, the shock survivors will ask, why did he do it?”
First of all, I’m not surprised that Michele Bachmann would type such a thing. She rose to prominence because she would say outrageous things. She flamed out because she would say outrageous things which made absolutely no sense. Secondly, in my mind, Barack Obama has done exactly what we wanted him to do. We wanted to make the tough decisions. We wanted him to do things that are hard but are in our best interest. He negotiated with our enemies and seems to have gotten a blueprint forward. It appears that Iran has agreed to dismantle some of its nuclear facilities. They’ve agreed to intrusive inspections. They’ve agreed to give up their aspirations to make nuclear weapons. In exchange they want to become a member of the international community. They would like to have a prosperous society like they had in the 1970s. The whole agreement would look different if it weren’t verifiable, but it is. This looks like a great deal for the United States, a great deal for Iran and a great deal for the international community.
Maybe the problem with Michele Bachmann is that she never learned if/then equations in grade school.
