Obama Derangement Syndrome goes both ways

I am writing in response to Kevin Buck’s Feb. 11 column in The Signal (“Obama Derangement Syndrome”) in which he condemns the questioning of President Obama as nothing more than conspiracy theories and ginned-up scandals, often motivated by pure hatred.

However, to ignore the troublesome behavior of this president and attack anyone who questions it is an Obama Derangement Syndrome of a different kind.

While every movement has its extreme elements, the mainstream of conservatism doesn’t waste time talking about birth certificates, impeachment, or hatred of the president.

Mainstream conservatives spend their time discussing these kinds of questions:

  1.  If the ACA was so desperately needed, why have all the major components been pushed beyond November 2014?
  2.  Why has Obama arbitrarily changed the ACA multiple times since it was voted into law — without consulting Congress?
  3.  Why did it take Obama eight months to appoint someone to investigate the IRS?
  4.  Of the thousands of qualified trial attorneys to lead the IRS investigation, why did he choose Barbara Bosserman, who donated $6,750 to his election?
  5.  If the IRS investigation is still ongoing, why has Obama already concluded that there was no corruption?
  6.  And if Obama knew Benghazi was an organized terrorist attack the first day, why did he and his administration tell us for two weeks afterward that it was only a spontaneous reaction to an offensive video?
  7.  Considering the deception that is often at play with this administration, what can we trust?

I would find it odd if someone wouldn’t want to know the truth, but to personally attack others who do to protect their political party would be truly deranged.
