Obama has been reelected today and is ready to reshape the world!

August 12, 2012

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney today selected inexperienced Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate. On a Likert scale of electability this selection would be for Romney a “-3” and for Obama’s a “+3” if he keeps Biden as his VP for the second term.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not for Obama who will be reelected for four more disastrous years. Mitt Romney’s behaviour as a presidential campaigner is a less dynamic, inclusive and eloquent than Barack Obama’s behaviour but I’d vote for him as the lesser of two evils out of compassion for Israel. On a Likert scale of electability Romney’s poor appeal to voters would be another “-3.”

I am so sure of my psychological and historical analysis that Obama will be reelected for four more years that I will put my reputation as a psychologist on the line. Obama’s Achilles heel will be   his right-wing foreign policy, not his left-wing domestic policy. The losers will be Iran, Israel and Shia Islam in general (Obama’s upbringing is Sunni). The winners will be Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the Palestinians and Sunni Islam in general. I am only talking about the next four years, not the peace and prosperity that comes after 2016 when Obama leaves the political scene. That prophecy I leave to Biblical scholars.

Could 911 be prevented?

May 6, 2011

Yes and no. Let’s find out. Send me your Yes or No answer to the following out of the box hypothetical situation:

“President Bush issues an executive order on January 20, 2001 that requires all the people within the US  to swear loyalty to the US Constitution on their Bible, have a behavioral profile certified by trained psychologists, get psychological testing for criminal tendencies, carry on them a high-tech picture ID and show it on demand to police officers, traffic cops, FBI agents, airline agents, flight schools, financial institutions, trucking companies, insurance companies, medical companies, oil companies, nuclear facilities and government employers.” Osama Bin Laden hears about it and delays the 911 attack till Bush is out of office.

Question 1: Would you vote for Bush’s reelection as president in 2004? _____. Probably not. Would the American people vote for Bush’s reelection as president in 2004?_____. Probably not.

Question 2: Would those who lost loved ones on 911 vote for Bush’s reelection as president in 2004? Probably not.

Conclusion: Bush would save 3000 American lives in 2001 – and be defeated for reelection in 2004!  Needless to say, voters would call Bush a “Fascist” and defeat him in 2004 because the American people hate to show IDs to anyone! Osama Bin Laden orders the 911 attach in 2005 right after Kerry is elected president and Bush is defeated. 3000 Americans die. Could 911 be prevented?  Yes, but to prevent big problems in your life takes courage, wisdom, foresight and the willingness to look bad to good people.
