Welcome to Obamaland: Please Leave Reality at the Door

Posted on December 17 2009 1:00 pm
Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

In an interview with ABC News, President Obama once again proved to be one of the best spinners in Washington, D.C. The United States, he said, will go “bankrupt” if his multi-trillion dollar health care plan America cannot afford, isn’t passed by Congress.

I know what you’re thinking: “that doesn’t make sense. If we’re already terribly in debt, we shouldn’t be adding to it.” Well, that may sound logical to your fiscally conservative and therefore terribly old-fashioned mind, but that’s only because you don’t understand the golden rule of Obamaland: up is down and down is up.

You see, in Obama’s wonderful alternative reality, nothing is what it seems to be. It’s a magical place in which gravity and other laws of nature don’t exist. In this heaven on earth, you can cause an economic crisis by forcing banks to give mortgages to people who can’t afford them, and then blame the “free market” and “nasty capitalists” when the economy collapses. It’s a world in which you treat enemies as friends and friends as enemies, thinking that’ll bring about peace.

So, next time Obama says something that sounds  silly to you – like giving himself a B+ – remember that the key to understanding him, is denying reality. And if he can do it, so can you.
