Obama's Biggest Character Flaw ["Obama's Biggest Audience Is Himself"]
AmericanThinker ^ | July 02, 2009

Obama's biggest character flaw

James Lewis

The President of these United States recently expressed his love for "the Urdu poets," a piece of inspired BS that nobody in their right minds believed for a second.

But then the P was narrowcasting to Pakistan, he thought, and Americans weren't supposed to be listening.

Yet character is revealed in those little snippets of Obama's mind -- his glorious fantasy life, his everlasting hope that somebody will fall for another piece of schtick, and his essential fraudulence as a human being.

Obama's biggest audience is himself, and no doubt he preened and pranced in his mind's eye when he told the nation of Pakistan about his deep love and understanding of Urdu.

Love ya, baby! all those sixty million Pakis were shouting, marveling at our polyglot president. Waddaguy!

At least in Obi's fantasy life, that is. Because that Zeppelin-sized ego of his needs to be pumped up a little bit more every single day.

Would you like to ride/

on my beautiful balloon?

Well, yes. For his next showboating performance our P will parade his beautiful ballooning ego in front of Vladimir Putin, whose own hands are dripping with the blood of Chechen Muslims, not to mention those brave (and now dead) Moscow journalists who dared to criticize the new Czar in the media.

When it comes to czars Vladimir Putin is almost the real thing, whipping and murdering the peasants and the boyars -- not those phony styrofoam Red Commissars Obama keeps in the White House, to lord it over Federal cabinet departments.

For the privilege of parading his beautiful ego in Moscow, Obama has no doubt paid a steep price: Say, stopping US anti-missile defense construction for Poland and the Czech Republic.

They've got his number, all the political con artists...

To me he's the caricature of a used car salesman.

His ego is accentuated if you compare Ronald Reagan’s statements on the Communist crackdown on the Polish Solidarity members and Obama’s statement on Iran.

The pronoun “I” does not appear once in Reagan’s statement.

The pronoun “I” appears fourteen times in Obama’s statement.Comparison: REAL President to FAKE President

REAL PRESIDENT
Ronald Reagan
Regarding Communist Oppression of Workers Unions
December 17, 1981

All the information that we have confirms that the imposition of martial law in Poland has led to the arrest and confinement, in prisons and detention camps, of thousands of Polish trade union leaders and intellectuals. Factories are being seized by security forces and workers beaten.

These acts make plain there's been a sharp reversal of the movement toward a freer society that has been underway in Poland for the past year and a half. Coercion and violation of human rights on a massive scale have taken the place of negotiation and compromise. All of this is in gross violation of the Helsinki Pact, to which Poland is a signatory.

It would be naive to think this could happen without the full knowledge and the support of the Soviet Union. We're not naive. We view the current situation in Poland in the gravest of terms, particularly the increasing use of force against an unarmed population and violations of the basic civil rights of the Polish people.

Violence invites violence and threatens to plunge Poland into chaos. We call upon all free people to join in urging the Government of Poland to reestablish conditions that will make constructive negotiations and compromise possible.

Certainly, it will be impossible for us to continue trying to help Poland solve its economic problems while martial law is imposed on the people of Poland, thousands are imprisoned, and the legal rights of free trade unions -- previously granted by the government -- are now denied. We've always been ready to do our share to assist Poland in overcoming its economic difficulties, but only if the Polish people are permitted to resolve their own problems free of internal coercion and outside intervention.

Our nation was born in resistance to arbitrary power and has been repeatedly enriched by immigrants from Poland and other great nations of Europe. So we feel a special kinship with the Polish people in their struggle against Soviet opposition to their reforms.

The Polish nation, speaking through Solidarity, has provided one of the brightest, bravest moments of modern history. The people of Poland are giving us an imperishable example of courage and devotion to the values of freedom in the face of relentless opposition. Left to themselves, the Polish people would enjoy a new birth of freedom. But there are those who oppose the idea of freedom, who are intolerant of national independence, and hostile to the European values of democracy and the rule of law

. Two Decembers ago, freedom was lost in Afghanistan; this Christmas, it's at stake in Poland. But the torch of liberty is hot. It warms those who hold it high. It burns those who try to extinguish it.

FAKE PRESIDENT
Barack Obama
Regarding Iranian Protests over Voting Irregularities
June 15, 2009

Obviously all of us have been watching the news from Iran. And I want to start off by being very clear that it is up to Iranians to make decisions about who Iran's leaders will be; that we....

...respect Iranian sovereignty and want to avoid the United States being the issue inside of Iran, which sometimes the United States can be a handy political football -- or discussions with the United States.

Having said all that, I am deeply troubled by the violence that I've been seeing on television. I think that the democratic process -- free speech, the ability of people to peacefully dissent -- all those are universal values and need to be respected. And whenever I see violence perpetrated on people who are peacefully dissenting, and whenever the American people see that, I think they're, rightfully, troubled.

My understanding is, is that the Iranian government says that they are going to look into irregularities that have taken place. We weren't on the ground, we did not have observers there, we did not have international observers on hand, so I can't state definitively one way or another what happened with respect to the election.

But what I can say is that there appears to be a sense on the part of people who were so hopeful and so engaged and so committed to democracy who now feel betrayed. And I think it's important that, moving forward, whatever investigations take place are done in a way that is not resulting in bloodshed and is not resulting in people being stifled in expressing their views.

Now, with respect to the United States and our interactions with Iran, I've always believed that as odious as I consider some of President Ahmadinejad's statements, as deep as the differences that exist between the United States and Iran on a range of core issues, that the use of tough, hard-headed diplomacy -- diplomacy with no illusions about Iran and the nature of the differences between our two countries -- is critical when it comes to pursuing a core set of our national security interests, specifically, making sure that we are not seeing a nuclear arms race in the Middle East triggered by Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon; making sure that Iran is not exporting terrorist activity. Those are core interests not just to the United States but I think to a peaceful world in general.

We will continue to pursue a tough, direct dialogue between our two countries, and we'll see where it takes us. But even as we do so, I think it would be wrong for me to be silent about what we've seen on the television over the last few days.

And what I would say to those people who put so much hope and energy and optimism into the political process, I would say to them that the world is watching and inspired by their participation, regardless of what the ultimate outcome of the election was. And they should know that the world is watching.

And particularly to the youth of Iran, I want them to know that we in the United States do not want to make any decisions for the Iranians, but we do believe that the Iranian people and their voices should be heard and respected.

It's just Americans who don't get it -- yet.

But they will, they will. The only question is how much the country will be damaged, by the time the voters catch on.

Our Marxist president is, according to some experts, a malignant narcissist. Some of the folks I know who voted for him are already worried about the economy in freefall and the continuous, pathalogical blames on Dubya (who obviously, obviously did not put us on the Dems reckless tax and spend trainwreck.)

I'm cautiously confident that Marxist Obama's (apparent) psychoses will get the better of him; and America might have an horrific awakening.

I have noticed that all of bambam’s speeches have an obvious number of “I”s in them. It would be interesting to compare more speeches like you did with Reagan’s speech vs. The occupant’s.

A blistering article. “Ego porn,” is the perfect way to describe the Usurper’s malevolence.

Yes, brilliant. Here is the entire quote in context:


Obama's "historic" Epistle to the Muslims, delivered last month at Cairo's Al Azhar University (an international center for Islamist propaganda) was not really intended to make a billion Muslims fall down at his feet. No, the main goal of all those grand gestures is to make Obama feel better about himself. That's the key to his character.

You could call it ego porn.

It's not that the Russians are against missile defense -- they've had those in place around Moscow for generations. No, they're just against American missile defenses...

...Think of it as Russia's historic inferiority complex shaking hands with Obama's historic Third World inferiority complex.

Remember when the world used to wonder how such an obvious madman as Hitler could be elected?

Future historians will focus on the "election" of the madman currently occupying the White House, as they ponder the downfall of the greatest republic in history and try to tease out what conservatives have seen unfolding before them for generations.

Maybe this is an angle on his narcissism and not a different character flaw, but I think he’s been saying stuff like “I don’t get sleep because of the economy” and hugging folks is because he comes across as unemotional and uncaring.
