Obama Derangement Syndrome

Remember how, when Bush was president, the loony Left blamed everything on him?

Well, this morning my Facebook feed is blowing up with people more or less finding the most convoluted excuses they can think of to blame the slashing attack on our ambassador to Korea on Obama.

To use a more recent example than Cindy Sheehan, you know how dumb the whole "Hands Up, Don't Shoot!" thing sounds? Well, that's exactly how dumb it sounds right now trying to make some bizarre Benghazi-esque connection out of the razor-wielding kook in Korea.

This is the flipside of where our un-American love of the F├╝hrerprinzip has gotten us. Not only do we think Our Guy can do no wrong, but when Their Guy is in the big chair, we blame everything bad on him. The elected executive of our republic has metamorphosed into some Frazer-esque sacral king, on whose luck rides the success or failure of the harvest and the path and frequency of Gulf coast hurricanes.
