Marketing seeks to create images in our minds by relying on the creativity of a writer. Political marketing often involves the creation of myths, transforming an ordinary man into a heroic figure with selfless ideals who is willing to endure suffering to serve his fellow man.
This transformation of normal ordinary men into heroes of mythical figures has never been more obvious than the stories of our most recent Liberal presidents Clinton and Obama.
We were just subjected to a reelection commercial featuring former President Clinton explaining the potential fallout and risk for President Obama if the SEAL raid in Pakistan had gone horribly wrong.
Suppose the Navy SEALs had gone in there . . . suppose they had been captured or killed. The downside would have been horrible for him [Obama].
This was a unique opportunity for Americans to observe and compare our most notorious Narcissists, and watch one create the typical Narcissistic pool for all of us to admire the other's reflection.
The myth of Narcissus is from the ancient Greeks. Greek Myths are stories that are a means to teach lessons of morality. If you will give your imagination a little freedom we will imagine the Myth of Narcissus in a contemporary setting.
Echo the Nymph was desperately in love with the handsome young hunter Narcissus, but he was proud and disdained all those who admired him, for he was in love with himself. Nemesis, a tricky god, directed him to a pool where he could observe his own reflection. From that point on, Narcissus spent all his time observing his own handsome features, unable to quit staring at his image and caring for nothing else, he eventually died by the pool. A flower grew where he fell and was to be known as the Narcissus.
If we replace Echo with the American people and the personality of Narcissus with President Obama, the basis for the myth is recreated after two thousand years.
While the American people have been dreaming of being loved and cared for by the object of their imagination, the harsh truth becomes more glaringly obvious with the passage of time, for the Narcissist exists for himself and only loves his own being.

Obama is probably responsible for NPD being dropped from the DSM....a king/dictator can do that....
What Obama knew is that the American people would not tolerate a president who failed to act while he knew for six months where Osama was hiding thus leaving the American homeland vulnerable to another attack.
Obama did not make a courageous decision, he made a calculated political decision. Republican politicians, especially surrogates for Romney, should say so.
When she told him that she loved him, his response was not I love you, too but thank youas though he appreciated that someone loved him.
That pretty much says it right there. But the idea he's the narcissist, like he's the only one in the world, or that there's one narcissistic or one pathologically narcissistic type that you can predict his behavior from is questionable. Finding out that Obama is a narcissist is more the beginning of something than the end, more the first word than the last about who he is.
He pimps a blog.
