Obama Speech Analysis: a Weird Journey Through the Mind of a Narcissist
foxnews ^

Posted on 03/28/2011 8:01:19 PM PDT by traumer

The President's address was an exercise in psychodrama, a weird journey through the mind of a narcissist who can't believe all the nasty things people are saying about him.

Obama's id is wrestling with the comparisons between his Libyan intervention and George Bush's action in Iraq. He made a point of criticizing Iraq, which had a vastly larger international coalition behind it than Obama does now, united in the struggle to depose an even more gruesome and sadistic monster than Qaddafi. He warned us that we might be stuck in post-Qaddafi Libya for a while because "40 years of terror left Libya fractured." The left never cut Bush any slack for trying to rebuild a country traumatized by decades of terror from Saddam Hussein.

The President's ego is very sensitive to the criticism that his handling of the Libyan situation was lazy and disengaged. He's constructed a new narrative in his own mind, where he "created the conditions for others to step up," leading the Europeans to declare "a willingness to commit resources." Thus does Obama retroactively become the hero of a military operation France, England, and Hillary Clinton dragged him into, and which he authorized with a few peevish phone calls from a South American junket.

Obama is clearly working through some deep issues about the Clintons. He took a few unexpected, oblique shots at Bill Clinton, noting that "the international community waited more than a year" before intervening in Bosnia, while Obama got ordinance dropped on Tripoli "in 31 days." He also congratulated himself for refusing "to wait for images of slaughter and mass graves before taking action." You might want to put some ice on that, Mr. Clinton.

Analyze this. Obama is a Communist and the first anti-american president.

It’s said that “power corrupts,” but actually it’s more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power. When they do act, they think of it as service, which has limits. The tyrant, though, seeks mastery, for which he is insatiable, implacable.
The Postman (1997)

Saddam and Gadhafi have more similarities than differences. Iraq very nearly turned out badly and still might though the world is certainly better off without Saddam. Libya will turn out badly more likely than not though the passing of Gadhafi, if it happens, would be overall a good thing. What will be left could well be Somalia on the Mediterranean given our current leadership and the equally inept European Union.

An odd thing I noticed is that he was hitting the lectern in a pronounced but subtle way.

You didnt see it but you heard the thumps.

This guy is a passive aggressive wienie.

Notice there’s the obligatory photo of Obama’s head surrounded by the prez seal/halo.
He’s way beyond his pay grade now. He’s past Pluto.

“I noticed is that he was hitting the lectern in a pronounced but subtle way.”

I don’t remember the circumstances, but I’ve seen Clinton do that on more than one occasion. Obama’s probably copycatting him. I think he thinks it makes him look tough or serious or something.

A writer for Powerline was irked by the thumping, too, so you are in good company for noticing. And there are three good posts on the Obama speech at that site now, all worth reading.

I know a lot have quit with BOR but tonight we had him on and if you missed the comments by that guy from the New Black Panthers about 0bama..wow..this Shabazz did not hold back...called him some bad bad names...said Moochelle should take the girls and leave..called him so really nasty names..

So now should anything bad ever happen to this Resident, and I hope to high heaven that doesn’t happen, the Black Panthers could be behind it..That rabid group wants mayhem and now that 0bama has “gone to war in Libya” against the ‘brothers” watch out..he won’t have the Nation of Islam guards anymore.

WOW! trouble in paradise?

I havent watched BOR in like 6 years

I pray to God that Obama lives to a ripe old age “Out of power”

One of my biggest fears is that this idiot is itching to be a martyr.

Thanks for the link:

President Obama offered no theories for why it had not done so during the previous forty years.

Nor for why we he apparently believes that we are in a stronger economic position than in the previous forty years so as to to be able to take on our third war....

In addition to all of this Shabazz vitriol on BOR last night, I wonder what could happen now that Trump in thumping around about the birth certificate issue. I have seen the transition pics the murf MalcomX into 0bama..and the similarities are striking..0bama does not look a whit like his so called father..
The other thing with this birth cert thing is that the senior 0bama was a British citizen at the time of the Bamsters birth...so how does that work out toward his being a natural born American?Could it be that maybe the Nation knows more about his background than anyone thinks? They would not have to organize the hit you suggest, just pull out the birth cert and let the rest take care of itself....all the way to jail....

Here's the photo that should be obligatory:

He has had ten days to prepare for this speech, yet he can't get it done without using a gazillion inch monitor with his speech displayed in the back of the room.

For the audience, why sit there to hear a narration of what is already written on a big screen? I would have turned my chair around so that I could read it myself.

“He has had ten days to prepare for this speech, yet he can’t get it done without using a gazillion inch monitor with his speech displayed in the back of the room.”

I have never seen any successful, powerful person need a massive telepromter to get through a speech. It is unheard of.

I went to an event recently in which both George Bush and Robert Gates gave extensive speeches. Neither needed this type of crutch.

The whole intent of the teleprompter kid is to try and fool the public into thinking he needs no notes to give a speech. What a rube.

I watched the speech last nite and I realized something- now I know why he doesn’t do speeches from the Oval Office, there’s no audience to applaud him when he’s through!

I don’t believe there is an applause when speaking from the Oval Office...
Who would applaud - the cameraman?

HAHAha. Thanks for that. I was a little confused when the camera pulled back and showed a wide angle shot, but his usual teleprompters weren't in the picture. Yet his head kept pivoting like he watching a tennis match. Your picture has explained it...

It was the FRENCH Foreign Minister and co-founder of Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders), Bernard Kouchner, who wrote "The Black Book of Saddam Hussein," in which he detailed that Saddam killed or caused the deaths of 2 million people.

That was precisely my point as to why he doesn't like to address the nation from the Oval Office. No adoring crowd.
