Rush Plants the Seed: Obama's Instability
January 22, 2010 | Doc Savage

Posted on 01/22/2010 4:33:51 PM PST by Doc Savage

Rush Limbaugh, during today's show, seemed to plant the first seeds of doubt regarding Barack Obama's mental fitness to serve as President of the United States of America. Rush commented several times during his program on his perception of Obama's mental 'instability.'

I anticipate that in the days and weeks ahead Rush will begin to flesh out the idea that Obama's fragile, narcissistic psyche has been irreparably damaged by profound political changes during his first year in office leaving him mentally unfit to serve.

Merely a personal observation with which I'm sure many will disagree,... but one that may bear watching.

Maybe he will be forced to resign? This isn’t good news—we do not want a mad president—he could nuke Boston!

This sounds like a case for Charles Krauthammer, a credentialed shrink. I believe he has already established that Zero is delusional.

I said this here about a year ago that he will be led out of the white house by men in white coats

I get it lol. Rush plants the seed and Obama (who naturally listens to Rush everyday, if only to here his own name spoken a few more times) tries his Harvard best to not act like he is losing his mind under the strain, which is of course the best way to start losing one’s mind.

I thought he signed a four or six year contract.
Surely the EIB will carry on! Surely!

No it’s not good. I’ve been praying for him, people can and do change. But, I’ve only seen that kind of change when people have a genuine relationship with Jesus. That’s what I’ve been praying for him and his family.

Good catch. Also others (msm) will start repeating this idea, first as mocking, then people will start saying things like “well maybe”, then it will be repeated so often the Everyman will start asking the question “is the president mentally fit?”

What if Obama showed up at a press conference in total denial, babbling as if his Healthcare bill had passed. Then he pulls out a Bic pen and starts claiming it has magical powers to fix the economy. There is stunned murmuring and uncomfortable silence as advisors rush the podium and hustle him behind the curtain as Gibbs stutters to explain the President is suffering from the flu or what not.

I have to admit that would be amusing.

If Obama resigns or is forcibly removed, then what happens ? Joe Biden, who is even less predictable, moves into #1 and Nancy Pelosi who is insane to #2.

His last press conference was in June, 2009.

He was to have presented his National Security Strategy to congress by July, 2009.

He is just winging it. His handlers are keeping him from any accountability.

There's a better chance Biden and the Cabinet would invoke Section 4 of the 25th Amendment; that would make Biden the Acting President. The Liberal Messiah would sooner fire our nuclear arsenal in all directions, than He would resign.

Biden would be president and the new VP would have to by confirmed by the house.

Rush didn’t “plant a seed”

I’m sure I’m not the only American who recognized obama’s apparent psychological and emotional problems even during the campaign.

Rush has just dared to mention it out loud in the national media.

Peggy Noonan today also worried in print that obama is a “Nut”

We can but hope that he will be escorted from the White House before he can really damage the state. But, I fear that will not happen and the merry-go-round of Statist Socialism will become faster.

What if Obama gave a speech, in total denial, claiming that the voters of Massachusetts elected a republican Senator to "the Kennedy seat" because they were angry with George Bush.

Huh? Whazzat?... Did?... Sheesh, never mind.

Not exactly. The VP takes over as POTUS but the Speaker of the House does NOT move up to Veep. Only if both the President AND Vice President are unable to serve would the SoH become POTUS. Also, absent a VP should Joe move on up, Pelosi would remain as next in line for the Presidency should anything happen to Joe. (And if the scenario was that Obama is a loon, then whither Joe?)

Slow Joe's first act as a patriot would be to appoint an ABP* VP and seek Congressional approval before Nancy Pelosi had any shot at the Presidency.

*Anybody But Pelosi

That's one characteristic of a totalitarian. Like Hitler allowing Germany to be totally destroyed as he killed himself in the bunker or like Stalin murdering thousands of army officers and political associates in fits of paranoia, Zero will not go quietly like an LBJ or Nixon.

Like Rush or not, he is usually right. He is probably right now. Obama seems to be losing it. The hostility he displayed today was a little disturbing.

I think the most likely outcome is that he commits suicide in office. His mental condition will continue to deteriorate as he encounters further setbacks. He will follow a path that seems to him to be the surest way to immortality but that also wreaks the greatest vengeance and havoc on an America that he despises.

He is more unstable than Nixon, more evil than Carter. It just don't get any worse than O.

Now as proof of what Rush is saying, O' is out today making all kinds of silly jokes, as if nothing has happened. Trying to take the edge off his big FAILURE in everything he has touched.

I would predict that he will be admitted, but then he is so evil it would take a lot more to drive him there. Insanity finally got to Hitler as well, then killed himself.

I have always thought that he would not finish his first term due to mental instability and the Constitutional provisions would have to be invoked, putting Biden in the White House to finish out the term. His reaction to the hecklers in Massachusetts the other day drove it home to me, he just does NOT have the presidential "stuff" deep down within his soul and spirit, where a real man resides.

I would imagine foreign intelligence agencies, who analyze America from afar, have also done their similiar leader psychological profiles, including of Obama, and have come to the same conclusions about his instability and the transient nature of his power.

This makes for some good opportunities for us politically, but also exposes us, as a Republic, to some very serious external national security threats.

Ahh, but the strawberries that's... that's where I had them. They laughed at me and made jokes but I proved beyond the shadow of a doubt and with... geometric logic... that a duplicate key to the wardroom icebox DID exist, and I'd have produced that key if they hadn't of pulled the Caine out of action. I, I, I know now they were only trying to protect some fellow officers...

I figured as soon as he was elected he wouldn’t last the first term; he’d have a mental crackup. Maybe or probably start hitting the hard stuff again. He may have already, who knows. He’s a madman.

What did Dick Cheney know, and when did he know it....

Was he looking at him because he knew he was a socialist freak, or did he sense in his gut that he might come unglued.

What you wouldn't give to sit in the study with V.P. Cheney and some sipping wiskey....

With all due respect, I don't think a Rush Limbaugh psychoanalysis is going to have any impact outside his listeners, who are already among the choir.

As somebody above noted, once a more broadly-received commentator - Krauthammer, say - begins saying this sort of thing, then it may gain traction.

In fact, however, I suspect that the real impetus for this will come from the liberal ranks. Mort Zuckerman is probably two angry columns away from starting to mention it, and that sort of diagnosis would rapidly reach NPR ... and then the cat will be truly out of the bag.

I suspect that once obama finds out that his opponents don’t respect him, don’t fear him, but actually laugh and mock him then I think he’ll come unglued.

actually joe gets the #1 slot and picks his number 2, which would be hillary clinton. 6 months later joe resigns due to “personal health reasons” and hillary gets the top spot.
