Obamaphobia?

Menendez’s explanation for Ted Cruz’s opposition to the Schumer-Rubio amnesty bill:

“Well, I think he has Obamaphobia,” Menendez 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.”

The left attaches -phobia to the end of things as profligately as the media uses “-gate.” But, yes, I’ll confess to Obamaphobia, and Schumerophobia, Pelosiphobia, and Menendezophobia. Also, Rubiophobia, McCainophobia, Grahamophobia, and Ayottephobia — all variants of Rinophobia.
