If You Loved Islamophobia, Get Ready for Obamaphobia

Having worn out the ways in which to accuse Republicans of racism for

1. Calling Obama a Socialist

2. Accusing him of using the IRS to target his enemies

3. Not voting for him in 2008 or 2012 despite his status as a half-black man

Democrats are on the verge of inventing a special new form of bigotry just for Obama. Obamaphobia.

Sen. Bob Menendez suggested on MSNBC Tuesday that Sen. Ted Cruz may have “Obamaphobia.”

The comment comes after the Texas Republican said Monday that President Obama is the “biggest obstacle to passing common sense immigration reform,” because he wants a path to citizenship, Talking Points Memo reported.

But Mr. Menendez said that it was actually the bipartisan Gang of Eight that pushed for a path to citizenship, TPM reported.

“Well, I think he has Obamaphobia,” he said of Cruz. “The reality is that it is the Gang of Eight that came together — four Democrats, four Republicans — and said that we need a path to citizenship.”

Obama has insisted repeatedly on a path to citizenship firming up the resistance of Democratic Senators on the subject. The Gang of 8 might have been willing to compromise on the subject to get the bill passed.

But Cruz took the ball and ran with it.

A spokeswoman for Sen. Ted Cruz told Breitbart News that her boss might just be suffering from a case of “Obamaphobia,” as Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) diagnosed earlier on Tuesday, depending on what the symptoms of such a condition are.

“If Obamaphobia means fear of government tyranny and the willingness to stand against it, I wouldn’t say that’s inaccurate,” Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier said in an email.

I think George Washington was an Obamaphobe. But it looks like Bosch Fawstin predicted this a year ahead.
