"George W. Bush is akin to a malignant tumor that needs to be removed sooner rather than later, and impeachment is still an option. Unfortunately, like any cancer, the very real fear is that it may already be too late. The cancer that is the Bush administration may have already destroyed the host The United States of America" B. Thomas Cooper
This is a good example of a new psychiatric illness that has swept through America's political left since the turn of the century, Bush Displacement Syndrome.(BDS) It was first diagnosed by an American psychiatrist and political commentator.
"the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency -- nay -- the very existence of George W. Bush". Charles Krauthammer
"What makes Bush Hatred completely insane however, is the almost delusional degree of unremitting certitude of Bush's evil; while simultaneously believing that the TRUE perpetrators of evil in the world are somehow good and decent human beings with the world's interest at heart." Psychiatrist Pat Santy
Bush Displacement Syndrome is a form of displacement affecting Democrats who are still furious over the results of the 2000 election. People use displacement as a coping mechanism to deal with their anger by directing it at a less threatening target than the real cause. You can tell if someone is using displacement when their reaction is all out of proportion to the reality of the situation. A good example is the call for the impeachment of President Bush by Representative Dennis Kucinich.
BDS is not always aimed at the President. It has been used against Administration officials from vice President Dick Cheney to chief of Staff Karl Rove.
Karl Rove is the ghost of Hitler.Think about it. He's undeniably evil. He can't have anyone touching him because he's obviously an apparition with clothes hanging off him. If you touch him, you'll feel the ghostly cavity within. So, he doesn't want people touching him. Andy the Intern
According to doctor Santy "It isn't even a stretch of the imagination for some to blame 9/11 on Bush. This is the insane "logic" of most psychological defense mechanisms. They temporarily spare you from the painful reality around you and give you the illusion that you are still in control."
