Posted on 10/14/2011 11:32:39 AM PDT by toma29
The abandonment by his father when he was an infant and by his stepfather at age 10 has left President Obama with a "father hunger" that influences everything from why he distances himself from pushy supporters, to his strong desire to compromise and bring people together, to his aggressive campaign to kill Osama bin Laden, says a psychoanalytic book out next week. In Obama on the Couch, George Washington University professor Justin Frank also reveals that Obama has spent much of his life seeking out father figures, but most, like Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Vice President Biden, have disappointed him. "Obama searched for a father, for someone to relate to who could help hima strong man who knew what to do," Frank writes.
This is Frank's second psychoanalytical book about a president. While a sympathetic look at Obama, it follows Bush on the Couch, a sharply critical analysis that suggested then President George W. Bush was disturbed. In that book, he predicted that someone like Obama"completely different," "someone not ... white"would succeed Bush. What the nation ended up with, however, is "an almost tragic figure," Frank writes.

How about we just sum it up “Obama’s nuts”.
papa was a rolling stone
He misses being spanked by Larry Sinclair...
And he found that person in David Axelrod.
“The Party is Mother, The Party is Father”
I predict he will resign in favor of a man everyone would be proud to have had as a father;)
(hint - not Romney)
BWAHAHAHA!! That's a good one. Oh yeah bringing the people together. Mr. "I Won" just full of compromise!!
Give me a break!
When you look at him in the room when the seals were taking out of Usama Bin Laden he is in the corner like a little child - He was not the one in command of taking out UBL! Ubama was told Bin Laden was going to be taken out by his CIA director.
I would have to be under the influence of LSD to write this sort of psychobabble.
If Obama were really disappointed in Wright he'd wouldn't have stayed in Jeremiah's black nationalist hate-whitey "church" for two decades.
Oh well, at least he's able to suppress ONE of the symptoms...
There can be no doubt that this professor is a far liberal since Bush is pyschological “disturbed” whereas Obama is a somewhat sympathetic figure.
Why Obama might actually have a breakdown on stage in a debate with Herman Cain, who’d school him like the dad he never had!
If you, for whatever reason, care to understand the dark forces motivating the mind of this publicity hound/shrink, you can reconstruct from these two books.
They tell more about him than they do their subjects.
By the way, he's probably right about 'bam and his so-called dad, though a better label might be "bastard syndrome."
I said in an earlier post today that 0bama could only WISH he had a father like Herman Cain. He had no good male role models in his life.
He surrounds himself with strong females...who either lead around by the nose or use him as a megaphone to push their agenda (Jarrett, Pelosi, etc.)
Obama’s Daddy issues could fill several volumes.
“. . .searching out strong males as father figures. . .
Just like Hitler. Wow. Weird, huh?
***...to his strong desire to compromise and bring people together,...***
The only people he brings together are fellow thugs to bust some heads; his only compromise is whether to bring a gun or a knife to the fight.
I’m surprised US snooze is still around - who reads it?
He surrounds himself with what he grew up with -
strong MARXIST females.
