The guys at HillBuzz, of late, have been referring to the man in the Oval Office as “Dr. Utopia,” and this is why:
There is a very specific reason why we no longer use the current president or his wife’s name anymore. They are just the current president and the current first lady. Dr. Utopia’s followers love him without knowing anything about him that will not ever change. Issues like his birth certificate, his natural-born v. naturalized status, his drug abuse (and possible drug selling), his nocturnal activities in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood, his pay-to-play schemes in Chicago, his Rezko dealings, his time at a hatemongering church … absolutely none of this means anything to the people who still walk around with big O’s on their shirts or glued to their cars. If anything, personal criticisms of this man only make his Kool-Aid soaked followers adore him all the more.
Some of those issues strike me as closer to non-issues hell, I’d hate to have to go look for a copy of my birth certificate at this late date but the best argument may be this:
Saying the current president’s name aloud is magic to some people. They love the sound of those three syllables. It makes people like Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann positively orgasmic. You do not need to contribute to that particular circle of MSM sycophants by drawing anymore personal attention to this current president than is necessary.
When the Feds assume control of everything, Matthews will have been found to have exceeded the acceptable level of tingle.
As for the “Utopia” reference itself, Robert Stacy McCain is there with the etymology:
Progressives are utopians, and it is important to remember that Thomas More coined the word “utopia” from Greek roots, so that the meaning of the word is, “nowhere.”
The progressive is marching down the road to nowhere, seeking an objective that does not actually exist and can never exist.
Damn that human nature, anyway. It forces us to act like humans, a species which under normal conditions resists being fleeced.
