Learn more about Obama, directly from the Mayo Clinic.
The Mayo Clinic (Medical Science & Vanity) ^ | 10-28-2008 | Rob Cunningham

Posted on 10/28/2009 10:21:11 AM PDT by RobaWho

Based on this detailed, comprehensive Mayo Clinic definition, one that I believe perfectly describes Obama, it's obvious he needs prescription medicine and extended psychotherapy. Our country is in tremendous danger with a person suffering from this complex mental illness in our White House.

I really think you need more to go on than this poor hit piece. Yes I think both the Obamas are under psych care to one degree or another, but I have no conclusive proof, hence at least a bit of discretion is warranted.

"Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. They believe that they're superior to others and have little regard for other people's feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism."

Narcissistic personality disorder symptoms may include:
Believing that you're better than others
Fantasizing about power, success and attractiveness
Exaggerating your achievements or talents
Expecting constant praise and admiration
Believing that you're special
Failing to recognize other people's emotions and feelings
Expecting others to go along with your ideas and plans
Taking advantage of others
Expressing disdain for those you feel are inferior
Being jealous of others
Believing that others are jealous of you
Trouble keeping healthy relationships
Setting unrealistic goals
Being easily hurt and rejected
Having a fragile self-esteem
Appearing as tough-minded or unemotional

Does liberal illness lead to narcissistic disorders or do narcissistic disorders lead to liberal illness? The symbioses of the two is obvious and occurs in numerous samples, like Clinton, Gore, Kerry, Pelosi and Obamao. The frequency and intensity of the malady is frightening. In Obamao we see the worst of it.

Obama was all excited about going to the Mayo Clinic until someone told him that it wasn't named after his biggest hero, or even spelled the same way.

Hit piece? Spare me your vapid comments. Who appointed you posting police? You've not even had enough time to read the entire Mayo Clinic information. Had you done so, and if you were an even casual observer of Obama’s public behavior, then reaching my conclusion is as simple as 1+1=2.

The thing to remember however, is that Obama isn’t the architect of all this crap, he’s simply one of the vehicles being used by the international left to carry out the plan. The left have put decades into this, and Obama is a tool enabling them to gain even more ground. About to backfire however, and the extent to which we succeed will be determined by the guts we are able to muster. All nuanced, milquetoast wusses, please step to the rear, for about 5 years please. There’s work for the grown-ups to do.

This just gave me a great idea for a Halloween costume.
1.Obama Mask
2.A “Please Love me” Tee shirt
3 A Short Pedestal to carry around for the evening and when anyone asks what I am, I jump on the Pedestal and start playing charades until they guess the disorder.

Thanks, Roba, you nailed it! I have been insisting for a while that he has NPD...look at the numerous pics of him in that head thrown back pose.

I occasionally play bit parts in local productions. If anyone was playing a king and gave the poses he does, I’d tell them to stop because it is way over the top, even for the stage.

You are obviously kidding. Meanwhile this mentally ill jackass is destroying America. He lies consistently. He is confirmed communists which is an illness of the worst kind since its main purpose is to destroy freedom.

An amusing post ... but are you aware of what happens when a clinical narcissist is outed and rejected? This sonofabitch’s demise will not end well for Amerika. He has a cousin in Kenya who has shown the pattern for how a malignant narcissist reacts and manipulates people, when rejected on a national level. BLOAT

I am not sure psychotherapy can do much for a personality disorder. It tends to be deeply entrenched in an individual's psychological makeup.

Say it over and over and over again.

The narcissistic Obama is used, just like say the narcissistic Brad Pitt, or the narcissistic Nancy Pelosi, by a cabal who DO know psychologically what they are doing.

It is going to take a powerful lot of honesty on all our parts to defeat it.

About which incidentally I see some, but not nearly prevalence, on FR; or in the Republican Party.

In the last 15 years I’ve worked with three people who fall in this category. The one I’m working with now is such a clear cut case of NPD it is astounding - and quite scary. She’s friggin nuts.

"It's not known what causes narcissistic personality disorder. As with other mental disorders, the cause is likely complex. Some evidence links the cause to a dysfunctional childhood, such as excessive pampering, extremely high expectations, abuse or neglect. Other evidence points to genetics or psychobiology — the connection between the brain and behavior and thinking."
"Narcissistic personality disorder is thought to be uncommon, affecting less than 1 percent of people in the United States. It affects more men than women. Narcissistic personality disorder often begins in early adulthood. Although some adolescents may seem to have traits of narcissism, this may simply be typical of the age and doesn't mean they'll go on to develop narcissistic personality disorder."

Although the cause of narcissistic personality disorder isn't known, researchers continue to learn more about the factors that may increase the risk of developing the condition. These risk factors may include:
An oversensitive temperament as a young child
Overindulgence and overvaluation by parents
Excessive admiration that is never balanced with realistic feedback
Unpredictable or unreliable caregiving from parents
Severe emotional abuse in childhood
Being praised for perceived exceptional looks or talents by adults
Learning manipulative behaviors from parents

I’ve read that a major contributing factor is lack of bonding in early childhood. Sorry, I don’t have a link. I don’t remember where I read it. But it makes sense to me. A major component of narcissism is lack of concern for others. Concern for others is learned through bonding.

Yes he does. So when his national poll numbers drop below 40%, his healthcare sham fails to pass, he loses the 2009 political races and is completely frozen with a 2010 Conservative Storm that blocks his progressive policies, how will the manchild react? What type of hissy fit should we expect?

If we remain firm through this process, one major positive is that we could put political correctness away for decades. Still to this day, the bulk of otherwise clear-thinking Americans who won’t hammer Obama are intimidated by political correctness, not wanting to pound on the black President. Our side really needs to push the notion of how our tolerance and virtue has been used against us, that the international left has orchestrated all of this due to the general goodness of the American people, knowing there was room to exploit. Generally, the backlash against such action is aggressive once the violated party recognizes what has happened. I’m praying we react similarly.

“The Kenyan has a “Fuhrer” complex.”

No. Der Fuhrer was a mere mortal. The Illegal Alien, OTOH, believes himself to be the Mahdi, risen from a secret, sacred well somewhere in the Islamic parts of Kenya.

It's not known what causes narcissistic personality disorder. As with other mental disorders, the cause is likely complex.

Here's the money quote for me, as it seems to help reconcile the fact that many people can come from similar circumstances (or even identical) and turn out completely different. This doesn't mean we should inquire about all the factors, but there is likely no magic bullet.

In my experience, the more pronounced the behavior, the more identifiable the cause, however.

From the people I have seen who seem to have this type of problem, they were brought up by parents who gave feedback along the line of making the child think he was special and superior, and the child believed it.

He was abandoned first by his Dad, then by his Mom, bounced between Hawaii, Kenyan & Chicago. He was forcd to adapt to wildly different cultures, raised by a young single college student, older grandmother and marxist stepfather. Throw communist Frank Davis into the mix, college misfits and twenty years of Reverend Wright hate, and you have a pretty toxic environment.

And you would be wrong. Narcissism, depression and manic depressive disorder are not all the same thing. Cancer, emphysema and diabetes are not all the same thing either. Modern medicine recognizes differences.

Thank you. Your comment is 100% correct. Obama’s a true believer, but he’s merely the messenger of the greater Marxist plan being driven by an international network of despots and control freaks. All that hate American greatness and our U.S. Constitution.
