Fox’s Dr. Keith Ablow – the psychiatrist who probably could use a good shrink – was the alleged “one lucky guy” on Outnumbered yesterday. And once again, he did not let a little fact like never having examined President Obama get in the way of psychoanalyzing Obama’s decisions to “disempower” the United States.
The clip below begins with two of the hosts criticizing President Obama’s speech at West Point the day before. But Ablow called the speech “masterful.” Why? Because “His desire is to portray the United States as weak and ineffectual, and that’s what he’s done consistently.”
Kirsten Powers argued, “I don’t think that’s true.”
When a President takes office and immediately apologizes for the country he’s leading and goes on an apology tour, when he says, “You didn’t build that business so if you thought you were using capitalism and your own smarts to build something, you didn’t.” He’s a dispiriting President who has it in for the American public….
…Because I think that he, well, it’s a long story, but I think he distrusts autonomy. I think people abandoned him in his life again and again and again, and individual decision-making is anathema to him. He hates it.
Kimberly Guilfoyle, not surprisingly, found nothing not to like in Ablow’s statement. Even though there was no “apology tour” and Ablow had distorted the meaning of Obama’s “you didn’t build it” comment. “He hates to make decisions or to hold people accountable,” she concurred.
Kirsten Powers didn’t buy it. “This is a guy who picked out Anwar Al-Awlaki and had him assassinated. I mean, this is somebody who can make decisions,” she said.
But Ablow inexplicably declared, “He makes decisions, but ones that disempower the United States.”
Successfully ordering two terrorists killed disempowers the U.S.? Only in Dr. Ablow’s warped mind.
