Posted on 06/11/2010 6:07:27 AM PDT by no-llmd
So what is the matter with Obama? Conservatives have been asking this question for some time. I've written a number of articles trying to solve the mystery.
-- Drugs and alcohol: Damage to the brain from drugs and alcohol can also cause significant cognitive impairments. Obama once said that there were 57 states -- and didn't correct himself. Memory problems can be caused by both illicit and prescription drug use.
Obama admits to a history of drug use in his youth. Did his usage cause some damage? Does Obama still use?
--Mental Illness: Obama's family tree is replete with the unbalanced. His maternal great-grandmother committed suicide. His grandfather, Stanley Dunham, was particularly unhinged: He was expelled from high school for punching his principal; named his daughter Stanley because he wanted a boy;

Islamic brainwashing will do it every time.
Obama’s doctors recommended moderation of alcohol intake”.
I would love to see the forensic psychiatry reports on obama held by the intelligence services of various nations such as Russia, China, Great Britain, and Israel
I bet they have him diagnosed
(ditto for Iran’s ahamdinejad)
“Since mental illness runs in the family, does Obama have any signs? Yes and no. No, he is not a schizophrenic babbling about Martians. But there are red flags for some other conditions.”
No comment. Except ewww.
Holy cow this was a good read. Thank you. Geez...the president is a f***ing nutcase.
Robyn, you are a very interesting person. You have a fine mind and a brave heart. I predict hard-won success and happiness for you.
This sort of ‘hit piece psychoanalysis’ was silly when it was aimed at Republicans, too.
The Greeks diagnosed him a very long time ago.
He suffers from Hubris.
The bad news is that all of his pals are f***in nuts too.
I can’t disagree with this diagnosis.
All those years in Indonesia make him forget he's supposed to be an American.
I guess I agree in a way. To me he is just an evil bastard. How about you?
Very interesting attempt to explain him. I think his family was the major element in forming his personality. I don't think he ever felt loved by either of his parents. He's a bit like Clinton, but I think even Clinton had the support of his mother. Something to keep in mind when I feel the urge to revile him. He's not all there.
His EVERY action displays very strong sympathy with the Muslim - Arab axis. Anyone who seeks to deny this is delusional. It is about time that Americans woke up and admitted it, then formed their actions with this is mind. And by the way, he doesn't have to pray to Mecca for this sympathy to be there.
Almost makes me pity rather than detest him.
If I ever have doubts about goals and or an objective to pursue in life in my golden years I am constantly reminded that there is indeed an evil force that can be fought by mere mortal men, and thats the Islamic War of the 21st Century.
The War that is never spoken aloud.
An excellent article by American Thinker’s Robin of Berkley. Definitely worth reading in full
She also brings up what I think is the possible truth on his birth, i.e. His father is Frank Marshall Davis, not the Kenyan Obama.
I fear so.

Except for the fact that SOMEONE must pay for his torment. Evidently he thinks that is us.
Madame Blavatsky Spiritual Traveller
It is an amazing trip.
Quick route: Madame B. to Aleister Crowley to Timothy Leary to William Ayers to Obama. (Lots of other connections too - but will take more time; interesting that Paul McCartney was recently at the WH).
That would be a shorter list, wouldn't it?
In his youth and early adult life, Obama never expected that understanding and learning about America would come in handy some day. Thus, he concentrated his efforts on learning how to be a radical revolutionary and not on learning about America and understanding it.
His life was mostly directed towards dismantling America and not improving it.
Obama is neither mentally deranged nor inhibited by drugs. His “illness” is nothing but a lack of knowledge about America and the American people, and his actions are nothing but a reflection of his inexperience and his wishes to fundamentally transform the country into something completely different from what the constitution and its amendments intended.
There is no need to explain what is “wrong” with Obama. What is wrong with Obama is the same thing that is wrong with the people who hate America and don’t understand it and wish to destroy it.
What is wrong with Obama is that he is not one of us.
Robin has quickly become one of my fav reads - superb intellectual insight and the experience of being a “recovering” liberal/socialist from Berkeley. She knows the evil in the belly of the beast and it adds enormous credibility to her columns.
This is a very good article
We are in for a world of hurt
Best thing to do is get enough adults in Congress to stop him
I'd be willing to consider his side of things like the stuff described in this piece if he weren't President. I can honestly see how this kind of stuff could mess a boy/young man up.
This all ceased to matter on the day that he filed as a candidate for the office.
Way past time for an ammendment to require candidates undergo a Physch eval. It would eliminate Narcissistic totalitarian dictators like we have now.
Not only that, but he blames white America, especially his mother, for his father abandoning him. His hatred of our country is his attempt to right a perceived wrong of his father. He can’t accept his father abandoned him because that’s what type of person he was. He needs to realize it is not white America’s fault his mother was a ‘ho and his father bailed on him. He needs to also realize that in no other country on this planet could he achieve what he has.
I don’t think so. I think he’s a tool.
I just reread it again and, while I agree with Robin of Berkeley that Obama is mentally and possible physically damaged, all the behaviors she pointed to as being symptomatic of illness might also be merely the product of a deep and abiding hatred for America on the part of Obama.
He giggles when asked about our problems because he actually revels in them and finds them funny.
He doesn't respond to the oil spill not because he is dissociative, but because he just doesn't give a sh!t what happens to Louisiana and the Gulf.
He doesn't change or grow in the job because his agenda is the destruction of the country and the job.
His flat emotional affect isn't due to schizophrenia so much as just a complete lack of interest.
All this said, I still think, as does R of B, that Obama is deeply damaged, but the point above are still in the realm of possibility.
What mental problems can be attributed to Obama can also be extended to ALL!!! of the nation’s liberals. There can be only one sane position to take on social problems, economics, and politics in this country: a mix of libertarianism and Republicanism. To take a liberal position on any of the problems afflicting America means to take the lunatic position.
Sharon Angle is just such a person - send her the $25.00 she is asking for from all conservatives regardless of where they live. We Americans have a chance to dump the officious, vile, mendacious, crooked Harry Reid once and for all from our government.
Thanks for the ping. He isn’t stupid or crazy; he is a product of his programming.
a very thought provoking....and frightening assessment
It's the analysing that's silly, or maybe 'ridiculous' is the better word. No shrink with any professional standing is going to analyse someone at long range and then make a public statement of his findings. The Dems have done this a lot to Republican pols and it's no better when the roles are switched.
I have no idea what Obama is and I suspect he doesn't, either. My tentative analysis is supercapital immersion.
what he & Clinton have in commmon is not knowing their father(s) and who they even were. The man said to be Clinton’s father died in a car accident before he was born — Clinton’s mother was a known bar fly — and now that Clinton has lost weight, he bears a staggering resemblance — especially in the jaw — to Nelson Rockefeller — go look at pictures — whose brother, Winthrop, was gov of Ark and a huge womanizer.
Zero’s father is equally ficticious —
Maybe we’re not so far apart. I’d like to think that my disapproval of Obama was only intellectual too, but it’s really hard to just not hate his guts when you hear the condescension in his voice and the underhanded way he goes about things. I guess my point, and maybe it’s yours too, it’s like being p_ssed off a rain storm. The storm has no heart. It doesn’t care if I hate it, or what I’m yelling at it, and it doesn’t want my sympathy either.
