Obama's Faculty-Lounge "Thoughts"

getting to at the point where it's disastrously clear that the current occupant of the White House is in permanent faculty-lounge mode.  That is simply not a mode which fits the task of President.

"When I hear folks say that maybe we should just admit the Christians but not the Muslims, when I hear political leaders suggesting that there would be a religious test for which person who is feeling from a war-torn country is admitted, when some of those folks themselves come from families who benefitted from protection when they were fleeing political persecution, that’s shameful. That’s not American. That’s not who we are."  --quoted at Breitbart

Actual thinkers will be revolted by this sophistry.  One, a Pope named Ratzinger, distinguished Islam from Christianity very clearly:  the difference is Logos, which is to say "reason."  Reason is not a component of Islam.  That is a distinction which makes a very big difference.

But in the faculty-lounge, reason is usually subjugated by emotion, which is evident in the above words of President Pissypants.

Obama is not alone.  The MSM (another mindless bunch) was enthralled by some piano-player who played Lennon's "Imagine" on the blood-filled street in Paris.  The title of the song is perfectly fitting, as was the treacly rendition.

In fact, "Imagine" should be emblazoned on the door to the Oval Office.  Reality need not knock on that door.
