Some animals are incapable of option evaluation and go directly to panic in a crisis. If the shadow of a hawk passes over a bunch of chickens, they will immediately start running in circles and clucking loudly.
Even animals that are capable of rational cause-effect cognition have to learn it. When I'm walking my four year old Chihuahua and another dog comes down the street, I can see her visually, olfactorily, and probably extrasensorily evaluating the situation and deciding whether to wag her tail or raise her hackles. But I can remember when she was four months old and the same situation caused her to run from side to side while looking frantically in every direction trying to decide what to do – the same behavior I have observed in the President of the United States.
"Ohmygod! Ohmygod! They're attacking the CIA compound in Benghazi! What'll I do? What'll I do? 'Can't let people know I'm illegally running guns out of Libya! What'll I do? What'll I do? Oh hell! It's too late. The attack lasted for nine hours and I didn't do anything! I'll close my eyes cross my fingers and claim it was a demonstration against an obscure video. Oh wait! Oh wait! there were people Woods and Doherty saved before they died. What about them? What about them? Bring 'em all to Washington make them sign non-disclosure agreements and give them lie detector tests every other week to make sure they don't talk."
"Ohmygod! Ohmygod! Lerner told everyone I've had the IRS persecuting conservatives. What'll I do? What'll I do? I'll hide in my office and maybe it'll go away. Oh hell! It's still there. I'll claim Republicans are making up "phony scandals" to discredit me. Ohmygod! Ohmygod! Now some whistleblower has blown the lid off my spying on American citizens..."
This pattern of Presidential behavior has been displayed throughout his tenure, most dangerously in his chicken-with-its-head-cut-off reaction to cartoons lampooning his red line in Syria, and most recently in his totally un-thought out attempt to defuse the VA death panel scandal by "rescuing" a deserter and defector and repatriating five America-loathing war criminals in the process.
I have come to the reluctant conclusion that our President – the President of the United States – has the mentality of a chicken – or of a four month old puppy. His mind is totally focused on his tailoring, his grin, and his vapid clichés. After years of marijuana and cocaine abuse, he no longer has the mental capacity to contemplate strategies or to predict consequences. His mental state simply vacillates between narcissistic rage and debilitating panic.
This explains why he never takes the blame for anything. He's actually incapable of thinking through a situation to determine its cause. He operates on pure testosterone, stupidity, and the conviction that he can lie his way out of any self induced calamity.
"God help us" ain't gonna get it. God helps only those who help themselves. For the safety and survival of the United States of America, this man must be removed from office – before he does irreparable damage to our Republic.
