Is President Obama Mentally Competent - the $5 T Gaffe?
Lawrence Journal World ^ | October 8, 2012 | Reasonmclucus

Posted on 10/09/2012 8:27:46 PM PDT by kathsua

President Barack Obama's obsession with a mythical Mitt Romney $5 trillion tax cut raises serious questions about Obama's mental health.

The federal government only receives about $1.2 trillion in total income taxes per year. There is no way a $5 trillion tax cut would be possible in the short term.

Congress would have to almost eliminate the income tax to produce a $5 trillion cut in 5 years. Cutting $500 billion a year would take 10 years to produce a $5 trillion cut. Cutting $250 billion a year would take 20 years to produce $5 trillion in cuts.

I considered the possibility Obama was deliberately lying, but why would an intelligent rational person use a lie that would be so easily exposed as a lie? Besides, Voice Analysis Technology used its audio technology to check the level of stress in the statements of both candidates and determined that both believed they were telling the truth.

The presidency is a high pressure job that can potentially destroy people. Many historians believe that the stress of heading an administration tainted by corruption killed President Warren G. Harding. Obama's obsession with an obviously non-existent tax cut proposal indicates he has apparently cracked under the pressure.

If Obama isn't living in the real world, he may not be able to respond appropriately in crisis situations.

With the recent Middle East crisis and the state of the world economy, we would expect our president to use the opening of the new session of the United Nations to meet with other world leaders. Instead, Obama decided to appear on "The View" talk show. He apparently is unaware that news stories about him meeting with world leaders would do more to help his presidential campaign than appearance on a talk show, even a talk show like "The View".

His most important recent accomplishment seems to be establishing a brewery in the White House. While he was showing off his brewery, he failed to check to see if American diplomatic facilities in the Middle East were prepared for possible 9/11 anniversary attacks. The result was a disastrous attack on the American consulate in Libya. Obama brewed beer while the Middle East burned.

Obama's separation from the real world may not be recent. Mark Bowden claims in his new book "The Finish" that in the event Osama bin Laden had been taken alive, Obama wanted him to be tried in American civil courts to demonstrate American due process. Shouldn't a Harvard Law School graduate have been aware that if that had been done, the first thing bin Laden's attorneys would have done would have been to request bin Laden's release on the grounds that his "arrest" without a judge authorized search warrant was illegal, particularly considering that the SEALs had entered Pakistan without permission of the Pakistani government? We should be doubly glad that the SEALs killed bin Laden instead of merely capturing him. If he had been captured the courts might have released him.

The British tabloids reported two years ago that Obama's doctor had recently told him he should cut down on his excessive drinking as well as his cigarette smoking. If President Obama is drinking excessively he is almost certainly an alcoholic, particularly considering that his father Barack Obama, Sr., was an alcoholic and his half brother George is an alcoholic. Alcoholism often has a connection to certain genes, especially the "risk taker" gene. If Obama is an alcoholic, he won't be able to simply cut back on alcohol consumption. His only option is to stop drinking completely.

Alcoholics often have trouble relating to the real world, but I'm doubtful that alcohol alone could explain such an obviously mythical claim that Mitt Romney wants a $5 trillion tax cut. Alcohol consumption might explain unwillingness to drop the tax cut subject and other aspects of his demeanor in the first debate, but probably not the development of the tax cut idea itself.

Of course Obama isn't mentally competent. That's been obvious for years. I didn't know Obama had a drinking problem, but then the media protects him by covering up his flaws.

Does anyone know what happened to the user blogs at Townhall? That portion of the site seems to have disappeared. I got an email that this essay would be there, but had to use google to find it somewhere else.

He’s still in his mind a student. Finals are here and he’s stressing; if he can make it thru finals week he can chill and choom all summer.

Only it’s not finals week. It ain’t summer.

That $5 Trillion taxcut as a result of 20% reduction in MARGINAL TAX RATES is over 10 years, not one year.

Secondly the loss of revenue is offset by limits on loopholes and deductions. If economy stays exactly at the same level, there could be a net loss of $1 Trillion in tax revenue. However economy NEVER STAYS at exactly same level for 10 years. Actually economy could very well expand due to the taxcut which would result in much more tax revenue than $5 Trillion taxcut over 10 years.

He is dysfunctional with numbers, with obvious number-phobia. This goes all the way back to the 57 states. His brain absolutely freezes when it comes to numbers and you can hear the hesitancy in his speech when he is talking numbers.

Add to that the time he told a crowd that a tornado had killed 10,000 people in OK.

Romney should play with his mind. “Just what are you talking about Mr. President.” “You are factually incorrect sir.” “I really hate correcting you Mr. President, as you are the leader of our country, but you must really go back and check your numbers on this. They are simply wrong.” You got bad info somewhere. “Mr. President, you remind of what President Reagan once said, It isn’t that liberals are ignorant, it is just they know so much that just isn’t so.”

Won’t take much to put him off his game- he’s existed in such an insular world since elected...

When you are not a real person it’s very hard to be real.

By that I mean he has always been a caricature of something else. He has no substance or center. Deep down, he doesn’t know what he is.

Actually, that was in Kansas, Greensburg Kansas.

The tornado was bad, but the population of that town is not even that high, I don't think. More like 777, I looked it up! http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18564159/ns/politics-decision_08/t/obama-overstates-kansas-tornado-deaths/

Obama always tells the truth, it’s just never put in the proper context.

After Obama’s spending binge, 5 trillion dollars of accumulated national debt in less than 4 years and three rounds of “quantitative easing” (i.e. printing money out of thin air), the resulting Obama driven hyper inflation in his second term could very well result in those kind of numbers.

Of course, at the same time, a loaf of bread will cost about $100,000.

Obama neglects to mention that pesky little detail.

Guess he is waiting until after the election to share that part of the story with us

I’ll second that. I think it’s a totally fake smile and if u noticed during the debate, there was one moment near the end I think where the smile went on And then off within a second.

Apparently he uses it to gain some advantage over whomever he’s speaking to but Romney wasn’t buying it.

Obama says things like that for a simple reason: he knows millions of Obamatons will swallow it whole. The great majority of Obamatons are clueless idiots who never read anything in the first place unless it’s a scandal sheet or a sports article. Obama’s not mentally ill (unless you consider every leftist mentally ill), he’s more just a shameless liar.

Obama is out to lunch. He's a puppet and doesn't know the details and doesn't care. If we could be honest with him and say, 'just have the real acting President show up for the next debate', it would be interesting to see who shows up.

Maybe because his smile and mannerisms are eerily similar to Malcolm X's. It's like watching Obama.

Dunno, maybe it's genetic, although Malcolm X was obviously much more intelligent and articulate than bumbling Barry the post turtle.
