Battered Voter Syndrome?

12 Mar

There’s no denying the Democratic Party is way too supportive of the Obama Administration/its policies whether or not that praise is deserved. But is an analogy to Battered Wives Syndrome entirely appropriate here either? …  And does it not, to an extent, belittle and make light of the ugly reality of domestic abuse in applying this metaphor to the President, his supporters, and the current political situation in the United States? … That’s my question.  I’m as willing as anybody to criticize Obama for his failings and missteps as a President, but when and where do we cross the line from legitimate criticism to crass political smears and even defamation of an individual politician in our attempt to ‘call it like it is’? …  Something to be thinking about as we move ahead in the 2012 political season.
