Fox News’ obsession with Jonathan Gruber took a bizarre turn yesterday. “Relationship expert” Karen Ruskin psychoanalyzed President Obama’s relationship with Americans on yesterday’s Your World show. You’ve got to see what she concluded.
RUSKIN: Often in emotionally abusive relationships, we don’t wake up because we are reliant. We feel controlled by the relationship. In fact, this unhealthy dysfunction shows us time and time again with lies. You can keep your health care: lie! You can keep your doctor: lie, lie, lie!
So, like in any relationship, whether it’s between husband and wife, pet owner and pet, parent and child, presidents and his people, if you are not telling the truth, and the voice of the other person in the relationship is unheard, that is the sure tale signs of an unhealthy dysfunctional relationship that is traumatic!
Host Neil Cavuto said, “This health care thing, that is, was all a facade, and the people in on it knew it.”
The relationship dynamic we have with people in power, if there is not a voice that we have, if there is an observation time and time again that there are people that are laughing at us and siding with him and not telling us the truth, not only do we feel duped by one person, but we feel like, not unlike the bridesmaids and everybody else that is laughing and knowing that they’re part of the cheat, in essence they are bystanders.”
It’s hard to know the point of Ruskin’s appearance, especially given that Your World is supposed to be a business show.
