The following will no doubt be dismissed out of hand by the Obamabots but I find it to be a fascinating subject of discussion.

# # #

NARCISSIST IN CHIEF
Experts explain what makes Barack Obama tick

He may be the most mysterious and secretive president in American history.

Though inexperienced and arguably unqualified for the presidency, he mesmerized the entire establishment press and more than half of voters, many regarding him nothing short of a political messiah. Though he can barely speak publicly without a teleprompter, he's praised as a transcendent communicator. Though his voting record is extreme left, he portrays himself as a pragmatic centrist.

But beyond Obama's political ideology, many Americans are troubled also by his strange personality attributes: He greatly exaggerates his achievements, expects constant praise and admiration, believes he's special, doesn't appear to concern himself with other people's feelings, expresses disdain for those he feels are inferior, sets unrealistic goals, appears as tough-minded and unemotional, and other qualities – all of which are textbook symptoms of Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

Indeed, the word "narcissist" is increasingly being applied to America's 44th president. Pulitzer prize-winning columnist and former psychiatrist Charles Krauthammer asks, "Does the narcissism of this man know no bounds?" Jack Kelly, journalist and former high-ranking Reagan administration Pentagon official, says: "The most dangerous thing about having a narcissist in a position of power is his unwillingness – perhaps his inability – to ever admit error. ... Obama acknowledged the troop surge in Iraq has produced dramatic improvements, but said he still would oppose it." Radio giant Rush Limbaugh said of Obama recently: "He's supremely narcissistic ... This is all about him. This has nothing to do with the country. It has nothing to do with our way of life. Every aspect of his presidency is about building him up, making him appear to be savior, messiah ..."

Is the president of the United States indeed a narcissist, a condition psychology and psychiatry recognize as a serious personality disorder?

No one was siting Rush as a source merely as someone of like opinion. So you acknowledge BarryO IS a narcissist? It would appear you do.

Now...help me out here. In using the word "giant"...are you referencing his girth?... or the size of his listening "flock"?

Thanks for your help!

I don't know about narcissist, but he does appear to have a thin skin. During campaigning and as President, he seems to go out of his way to reply to every negative comment that comes from sources big enough to get media attention. I mean; what was the point of mentioning Limbaugh or Hannity by name after some of their comments hit the news? Seemed like a waste of valuable time to me.

Sure.

I think ALL public officials more or less suffer to a degree of narcissism.

That said, the little blurb is for intents and purpose ... nothing.

Hot air.

Just like you.

I would say that all POTUS' are narcissists to some extent. Wallflowers don't generally ascend to arguably the highest position in the world. That being said, doesn't mean he doesn't love his country or can't be a good president. This is a non-starter.

I think it was an immature attempt to show his disdain for these two clowns. Ok, so the President obviously does not care for either Mr. Hannity or Mr. Limbaugh...but why the need to put yourself on their level?... I mean...after all, You are the President of the United States.

Actually, it was a very carefully constructed political strategy that, looking at various polls, seems to have worked quite well.

Isn't just my opinion. Anyone else out there think RBK is a lying coward for posting a pile of BS and calling it fact, then promising to admit he was wrong if proven so, and been avoiding his own proclamation ever since?

Oh dear god, he's calling out his fellow members of The Stalin Youth! Unable to fight his own fights, LIKE A MAN, he has to rely on the gang and yet he has the temerity to call ME a coward.

Liberal hypocrisy is the only constant in an ever changing world and Bucky, YOU are primo example.

Oh, that's right.

You've shown your own neo-conservative hypocrisy.
Not to mention admitting to being a Troll.
And a racist. Admitting proudly to it.

And when shown facts to your imaginative postings,
you say you will apologize and don't.

hence:

From you:

No doubt the following facts will be shouted down as 'ignorant hate-speech' or some such nonsense but doing so does not negate their accuracy. This is what we have to look forward to and we have democrat voters to thank - or to hold accountable as the case may be.

IF it's a hoax I'll gladly stand corrected.


Repeatedly ignored. Repeatedly challenged. Ignores it like a coward. Hey, Mr Big Man, why don't you answer this? Why do you keep ignoring it?

Lecture causes dispute

UNLV accused of limiting free speech

A UNLV professor under fire for comments he made about homosexuals during a class lecture last year demanded Friday that the university stop threatening to punish him.

"I have done absolutely nothing wrong," said the professor, Hans Hoppe, a conservative libertarian economist with almost 20 years teaching experience at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada, on Hoppe's behalf, sent a letter to UNLV officials alleging that the university violated Hoppe's free speech rights and his right to academic freedom.

"The charge against professor Hoppe is totally specious and without merit," reads the letter from ACLU attorney Allen Lichtenstein.

He said they would sue the university if necessary, though they hope to avoid it.

UNLV officials would not comment on the case, saying they cannot talk publicly about personnel matters.

ACLU Statement In Support Of Senator Larry Craig’s Efforts To Withdraw His Guilty Plea (1/16/2008)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT: media@aclu.org; (212) 549-2666

NEW YORK – The American Civil Liberties Union supports Senator Larry Craig’s attempt to have his guilty plea withdrawn because the Minnesota law under which he was arrested is unconstitutionally broad. The statute punishes “offensive, obscene or abusive language” which tends to arouse “alarm, anger or resentment” in others. Clearly, this law has the potential to ensnare and criminalize legal, constitutionally protected free speech, including solicitation for private sex.

The Minnesota Supreme Court and other courts have found that a closed bathroom stall is a private location. The police have no business spying on people in places where there is an expectation of privacy. The ACLU is in no way advocating sex in public bathrooms. If law enforcement is genuinely interested in stopping sex in public bathrooms rather than ensnaring people in sting operations, posting a sign prohibiting it and announcing police patrols would be much more effective and would meet constitutional requirements.

Proudly admitted to being a racist? Where and when?

By the way, did you hear the one about BarryO taxing aspirin?

Oh never mind...

Well I am not sure why we are expected to reply to an opinion piece where he will not even post a link to the author or the article itself. Do I get to google this and find Dick Morris at the helm?

You'll find it in many conservative email inboxes. Even the professor that "wrote" it has a disclaimer on his own .edu page.
