A Bipolar White House?   2 comments

Last night I was watching MSNBC with Lawrence O’Donnell and he was showing footage of a speech Mit Romney made yesterday more or less accepting the Presidential candidacy nomination for the Republican Party.  I say more or less because he won most of the states in the primary, so it was pretty much a given.  His self-congratulatory speech was like me buying a house and then making a bloated speech to my real estate agent accepting the property.

The thing that bothered me most is that for many of Romney’s statements, Lawrence O’Donnell juxtaposed footage of him blatantly contradicting himself.  At first I thought I was watching a skit from Saturday Night Live.  It would have been the first funny thing they did in ten years.  Worse yet, he began revising history of how President Obama was the one who created the deficit, that we are still in a downward recession and Obama wants to make the United States a secular nation.  If you think any of this is true, you need to get out of your trailer more and stop watching FOX News.

Most revolting, is Romney wants to double the tax rate on student loans.  Well, he claims he doesn’t, but video footage shows him saying on camera at a rally students shouldn’t be relying on loans and interest rate discounts.  They should pay their full ride with no assistance.  But now he’s for keeping the student loan interest rates from doubling.  If Mit Romney went to a psychiatrist, I guarantee you’d find some major issues.  A main psychopathic feature is the ability to lie with no remorse.

However, you can’t just blame Mit.  The entire GOP is constantly rewriting history in an overt effort to bring President Obama down.  I honestly believe it’s because they can’t stand having a young magnetic black man in the White House.  And if they have to go into liar’s-overdrive, then so be it.  Wasn’t there a movie in the early 1980’s with Clint Eastwood and a Chimpanzee side-kick called “Any Which Way You Can?”  Well right now Mit is the Republican Party’s Chimp doing it “Any Which Way He Can.”

Everybody tells lies to some extent.  When I was at my obsessive compulsive worst trading in my car every six months for a new one,  I told my critics I could sell each one for even money, so why shouldn’t I drive what I want when I want?  The truth be known, I was losing a fortune trading cars in so frequently, but I couldn’t stop my compulsion.  But I was embarrassed and trying to hide my bipolar disorder.  And the only person I was hurting was myself.

The thing is, in all my bipolar illness, I would never tell a lie that would effect someone else.   If I lied, it was to keep people from finding out about my OCD, depression, a suicide attempt, a hospitalization or the likes.  I never disparaged anyone or tried to harpoon their character for my benefit.  And although bipolar people are not less prone to lying, they are not more prone either.  And I don’t think the majority of people in the world are liars either.

Then we see these republicans telling lies the size of hot air ballons that do affect our country in a negative way.   There are also a lot of stupid people out there who believe this rhetoric and republicans seem to have no remorse feeding them this political fodder in the form of pert little sound bite suppositories.    Worst of all, they literally ignore the fact their lying can be documented.  This is psychopathic behavior.

I’m still waiting for a Republican to stand up in Washington and say “this is ridiculous!  The Republican Party has gone too far!  Republicans and Tea Partiers, line up for a psychiatric evaluation at the Lincoln Memorial!”  I think it would look just like a mostly white Million Man March.

I could never run for President.  After all, I’m Bipolar II.  I could get depressed, go to bed and sleep through the passage of an amendment to the constitution.  Or, I could get hypomanic and keep threatening to launch a missel at France if they don’t send me over a wheel of brie every Friday.  I might even have an OCD flair up and start trying to conquer nations that start with the letter “M.”  No, the United States could never have a bipolar man in the White House.

A psychopathic liar out to destroy the President because his vindictive political party can’t stand to have a successful democrat, little yet an African American in the White House?  Now that’s OK with a lot of Americans.  But not a bipolar.  That’s way too dangerous.
