Clearly Hard-Wired

“And so part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we’re hard-wired not to always think clearly when we’re scared.”
— Barack Obama, October 16th Democrat fundraiser

Clearly Hard-Wired
By Asher Embry

O says our thinking’s just not clear: We’re scared, our wiring’s wrong.
His view: it’s not his policies which make tea parties strong.
He thinks we just can’t comprehend; remember, we’re the ones
O views as silly, bitter hicks who cling to God and guns.

We’ve tried to disabuse him but he always does presume
That he, and no one else, must be the smartest in the room.
On that he’s quite delusional, oblivious; it’s grim —
O’s always being rolled by Ahmadinejad and Kim.

But still he presses onward with his fundamental change,
Dismissing our objections as irrational derange.
It’s simply inconceivable that we could disagree.
There’s no one left for him to blame except for you and me.

We noticed all the people who he’s thrown beneath the bus;
And knew it wouldn’t take much time before he’d get to us.
