Is Barack Obama Depressed?
Gawker ^ | September 12, 2011 | Unattributed

Posted on 09/13/2011 3:55:03 PM PDT by Seizethecarp

We're told by a source inside the Times that the paper is preparing a story arguing that Obama no longer finds joy in the political back-and-forth, has seemed increasingly listless to associates, and is generally exhibiting the litany of signs that late-night cable commercials will tell you add up to depression. Or maybe Low T.

Either way, the investigation was described to us as taking seriously the notion that Obama may be suffering from a depressive episode.

Yeah, that’s why it’s called the Obama Depression.

First step in dropping out of 2012 election. Then he gains sympathy by becoming the spokesperson/advocate for the depressed.

Let’s give him a shot of Jack Daniels. it might be the start of a drinking habit. Kind of reminds me of Nixon near the end. An embarrassing incident would be priceless.

It is so true. I know people who have been depressed since he was elected. I have difficulty sleeping myself. I just want this nightmare to be over.

He'll get no sympathy from me. His win in '08 resulted in me being depressed for several months. I saw his election as evidence that America had reached a tipping-point where the collectivists out-numbered the normals.

Thankfully it was not the case . . . though it woke me up to the sorry reality that is the 'independent voter' . . . God love 'em.

How awful. This is terrible. His health should be our first concern. He must...MUST...take a vacation and get away from it all. I suggest a remote island that has no television, no bridge, no telephone, no internet...basically no communication with the outside world. No electricity, even...just “green” things. He should stay there for at least, say, fifteen months.

Sure we’ll have President Biden, but we can easily distract him by waving shiny objects at him.

If the NY Times goes ahead with this story it could be a big push out the door. NYT has allowed brutal Op-Ed pieces against Barry lately.

Barry looks awful, lately. We know from Barry's last physical that he has been “self-medicating” with booze too much to the point that the MD who conducted the exam put a caution in his report. Can you imagine if that had been W or any other president?

When you’re staring at a possible 10-15 for scamming stimulus $, election fraud, or even the teeniest possibility of a treason charge it’s more like spinchter exhaustion or bleeding ulcers.

“First step in dropping out of 2012 election.”

This is appearing more and more to be a very real possibility. Deeply sagging polls, economic malaise, foreign events out of control, legislative setbacks, etc. Narcissists don’t deal well with failure. They cut and run.

OK then - why doesn't he resign already?

It’s not depression. Remember, Zero is a major league narcissist.

What he is going through is frustration and anger resulting from the reality of the world colliding with his own self-conception. As a result, we will see him lash out more and more in coming months.

After playing this latest stimulus card, he only has two cards left: First, the class warfare card which he will play in conjunction with the debt supercommittee process, amid shouts of eat the rich. And lastly, the race card which he will play at critical junctures in the reelection campaign to try to get him over the hump.

No he is not depressed, he is a carrier of depression. I am sure he must be laughing his ass off about how much he has already done to destroy this country. Give him four more years and it will be mission accomplished.

Hey, if I lived in a country where I was handed everything, including the Presidency, and I still thought it had to be reinvented, I'd probably be depressed too.

And I know I'd be depressed if I had to stay married to Michelle Obama.

It would be an historical event if the president of the US committed suicide.

I wonder if the Secret Service has orders and plans to limit the president's access to weapons, etc., as a threat to himself.
