Skip to comments.DR. KEITH ABLOW: A Psychiatrist's Advice for President Obama
Posted on 01/28/2011 9:41:22 AM PST by iontheball
President Obamas State of the Union speech on Tuesday night symbolically kicked off the 2012 Presidential campaign. I tuned in with what psychiatrists call a third earlistening to myself listening, polling my gut for when it alerted me to true or false notes. In my office, it is this third ear that allows me to ask questions that get past a persons more superficial stories, to the heart of that person. In other words, I was paying as much attention to whether I sensed the President believed what he was saying, as to whether I agreed with what he was saying.

Other professional mental health Ph.Ds weigh in:
Obama seems to suffer from malignant narcissism whereby he feels he is exceptional, acts like he is exceptional and his followers believe he is exceptional. On the basis of his followers opinion, Obama feels even more justified in his exceptionalism...
To nail that reality down further:
..The pathological narcissist imagines hes giving you milk when hes actually feeding you poop; in short, hes not a bountiful breast but a toxic a$$hole. Once you get a feel for this, you can really appreciate the ubiquity of the dynamic. Ever wonder how Noam Chomsky can be so prolific? Because the large intestine never sleeps. Likewise, mass culture is a sewer. Literally. ...
...Look at Obama. What is he? Thats part of the problem, because he clearly doesnt know. Hes certainly not priestly or spiritual, based upon his long-time membership in a racist cult. Hes not intellectual, based upon his skin-deep grasp of the issues, and a mind that seems to consist of little more than recycled leftist cliches with no discernible center. Hes not a warrior; quite the opposite, as he has no feel whatsoever for military culture. Hes not a leader, as his basic masculinity is too much in doubt. Hes pretending to be something, but even he doesnt seem to know what it is. Apparently, he wasnt even a good community agitator, like Al Sharpton. .. ~ Robert Godwin PhD Clinical Psychologist
Beauty, Milk, Poop, Soul Jazz, and the Miscaste Obama
“..Narcissism is not a monolithic condition, but is actually situated along a spectrum from mild to severe. However, the most severe narcissists can often appear to be the most outwardly accomplished. One of the reasons for this is that the more severe the narcissism, the more driven they are to accomplish something in accordance with their grandiosity. ..” - Robert Godwin, PhD Clinical Psychologist

And we are about to see just how frozen, unable to make a foreign policy decision concerning Egypt, et al.
He is so afraid something negative will be attached to him he'll vote 'present' to a ME crisis just like he did in the Senate.
I think in his introspective moments he knows he is in way over his head and will let events play out with out his possibly making a wrong decision or one that could be criticized.
