Time: Conservatives Hate Obama So Much They'd Root for Invading Martians Over Obama

The times of crisis in which Obama has governed only exacerbate the situation.

And it is evidence of how much matters have deteriorated that it is impossible to imagine conservatives rallying around Obama in the face of a new disaster, like the left did (albeit briefly) after September 11, 2001 for Bush. Even if the President repelled a Martian invasion, the right's reaction would likely be the same as it was after the Christmas Day bombing attempt, or the Times Square failed attack, or the current oil spill: denigration of Obama's competence, suspicion of his motives, and implicit or explicit hope for his failure.  
It is hard not to smell Rush Limbaugh-bashing in that paragraph. But it's suggesting that conservatives are unpatriotic in their unwillingness to rally around the president in a time of crisis. It's insulting and just wrong to suggest that if the country really felt in peril like after 9/11, that conservatives wouldn't rally around the flag. Apparently, the right lives in an electronic cocoon without liberal bias:

It's rich for Halperin to suggest that there is more "apocalpytic irrationality" to come against Obama, completely forgetting that the liberal media specialized in apocalpytic irrationality about Iraq and Katrina and mini-scandals like the U.S. attorney firings. But he went there:
