THOSE desperate to decipher the baffling Obama presidency could do worse than consult an article titled “Understanding Stockholm Syndrome” in the online archive of The F.B.I. Law Enforcement Bulletin. It explains that hostage takers are most successful at winning a victim’s loyalty if they temper their brutality with a bogus show of kindness. Soon enough, the hostage will start concentrating on his captors’ “good side” and develop psychological characteristics to please them — “dependency; lack of initiative; and an inability to act, decide or think.” Keep Reading HERE.
Frank Rich, NYT Columnist, was a guest yesterday on Imus In The Morning. Bill was responding to his interview with Imus, where Frank expounded on his "Stockholm Theory" as it regards to the President, tracking toward the center of our country's electorate -or asI like to refer to it, the Reasonable Middle.
Maybe from where Frank Rich sits, it looks like the President has been taken captive. Out here in the blogsphere occupying one of the cheap seats, I have a different vantage point. From my view point "We The People" aka The American Voter, have rescued the President. From his far left, humorless, rigid, dogmatic, slavish conformist, doctrine obsessed, micromanaging base ......but I digress. Mr O'Reilly was pointing out to the I Man, what a pinhead Frank Rich is for his Stockholm Syndrome rhetoric. The I man revealed yesterday how Fox Business News VP Neil Cavuto, was setting his DVR in anticipation of Frank Rich's interview.
In defense of Frank Rich, he still comes on a Fox News Network, when invited. How many heeded the call from the White House, to the other news outlets, not to let their talent appear on Fox News affiliates? I know CNN contributor James Carville, doesn't appear on Imus In The Morning anymore. I think Frank deserves to be cut some slack. How long has thesiege against Fox News by the Obama Administration been going on now?How Goes The War Against Fox?Marty Davis - Chickaboomer, has the latest casualty numbers HERE.
