Barack Obama = Empty Vessel
Foxnews.com ^ | 11.04.09 | S.E.Cupp

Posted on 11/04/2009 12:17:35 PM PST by SHAWSBLOG

Let me first assuage the fears of many of my conservative friends and colleagues: Barack Obama is not a left-wing radical. He is not a socialist, a communist or a Marxist, and he’s not a black liberation He’s not un-American, he’s not an atheist, and he’s not a racist.

He is none of those things, because all would require Barack Obama to have a belief system, a worldview, a set of convictions about political philosophy, theology, and socioeconomics that he simply doesn’t have. He is, instead, empty. He is an empty vessel.

he is not even a vessel as that would be useful in its emptiness. He is just an empty self admirer. A pathological narcissist. Useful to no one but himself in his own admiration.

I like him calling Obama an empty vessel, but he’s wrong if he thinks Obama isn’t un-American and a socialist.

Nah, I disagree. I think the evidence suggests Obama is a fairly hardcore Marxist ideologue, in addition to being an insufferable narcissist and megalomaniac.

Normally I agree with most S.E. Cupp has to say/write, but in this case I could not disagree with her more. Obama IS everything she says he is not. The reason he (on the surface) “disavows” from things such as black liberation theology or Rev. Wright is because it is politically the only move to make to present himself as more moderate and palatable. At the core of who he is, he IS ACORN and Rev. Wright and black liberation theology and a Marxist, etc.

“So would a real radical disown his radical mentors and protégés? Would a real extremist and true-believer insist with a straight face that he didn’t really believe all that stuff? Would a real ideologue be persuaded by a public opinion poll to abandon whole ideology?”

Short answer, of course he would. Political expediency is the hallmark of an effective Marxist these days. Any outward attempt to defend Marxism would cause near instantaneous political death. Stealth under a cloak of attending to and alleviating crisis is the modus operandi.

Obama is a Marxist AND an empty suit.

Right...last night we are told that he did not watch the election returns. Instead he watched an HBO special about HIS election last year...figures.

Good article, and I think it is true, to a great extent. There’s really nothing inside and Obama and everything about him is essentially a sham. Even he doesn’t know what he thinks...except about a couple of things.

First and foremost, himself. He’s a sociopath and is madly in love with himself and sees himself, all evidence to the contrary, as some special being. He can’t understand that he was essentially promoted by the hard left people behind him and that now they may be getting tired of him because he’s so clueless he’s no longer useful to them.

The other is Islam. I think you’re going to see him moving more and more in this direction. It’s part of his version of himself, and it, along with his spurious claim to be “African American” in the sense that is usually meant here, are going to come to the fore. I think as his political charm wears off, you’ll see the Black Muslim emerge.

One of the features of his being a sociopath is that he is fueled by resentment and anger, all of it completely misplaced and misguided, but it’s obviously his way of reacting to unpleasant encounters with reality.

I think he may actually become angrier and nastier as things start to fall apart around him.

“The proof of his ideological emptiness is practically undeniable. He has been, over the short course of his political career, the great abandoner, ever-willing to denounce those ideals that were previously sold to his constituents as “his convictions.” “

I don’t know who this lady is, but I agree with her.

Have you ever considered that perhaps this guy and the people around him are so inexerienced and naive that their actions are based on this?

They know not how to respond to protesters in Iran, so they’re indifferent, (i.e. vote present)...They don’t know how to respond to Russia, so they remove missile defense unilaterally...

They don’t know how to respond to Hondurus so they respond wrong.

I can go on all day.

And of course the biggest proof is Afghanistan. They are clueless here. So they again will vote present.

I seen his poll numbers going South big time tomorrow.

This is what I have believed for a long time, that Obama is just a sock puppet being handled by Progressivists.

Obama is like a pimple on one’s ass.
Irritating when you sit on it
but a great relief when you finally pop it.

That makes sense.

Aren’t women basically empty vessels until a man fills them with love and children?

If Obama is so empty, then why are his czars and connections (Bill Ayers, etc.) all so left wing?

Every Democrat presidential candidate is a blank screen upon which libs can project their particular hopes, dreams, values, prejudices, etc. Keep it vague. Stick to cheery platitudes. Smile a lot. Say things like “There’s so much more for us to do. . . together.”

Obama is a textbook narcissist who is now showing; as should be obvious to anyone close paying attention, delusional characteristics.

He will become worse, he will engage in even more “under the bus” behavior towards those he believes have “wronged” him and easily could become violent towards others or even himself if pushed far enough.

In effect, he is no different from Hitler and Jim Jones, both who showed the same type of personality characteristics. Their own ends foreshadow what could potentially happen with Obama.

Obama isn’t exactly an empty suit - he’s actually much more dangeous.

Exactly. Just look at the White House visitor list. It reflects a consistent moonbat-left philosophy.

That's my feeling, too. I guess we'll have to wait and see how it shakes out. Possibly there are enough people around him who may be leftist ideologues but don't want to be part of the Obama Implosion, once it gets really wild, and they'll deal with him. Or possibly he'll deal with them.

He surrounds himself with true believers and I have no doubt he easily deals with those who find out the “real” obama and would dare speak out about him.

I’m not the only one who has to find it disturbing, but hardly strange, that nobody from Obama’s past, aside from Sinclair, has told us anything about Obama’s past.

Because they are the ones willing to publically adore him.

You got it. Denial might be believable were he not surrounding himself continuously, even now, with radicals and America haters.
I don’t think we could find a more damaging POTUS. The fact that he is POTUS is still unbelievable to me.

This comes a lot closer to describing Obama than a lot of what you usually see.

Go to any college and you'll see kids who are "Marxists" for a semester. A few really are and will stay that way.

For most it's just one of many phases they go through. What it is that they are. Is a lot harder to say. Trendies or dedicated followers of fashion or narcissists or posers, probably comes closest.

Obama is like that.
