Skip to comments.Obama: "Sailors and Soldiers are Out There Fighting on My Behalf" (HIS behalf?!)
Posted on 05/09/2012 2:04:48 PM PDT by pabianice
This is the ultimate in narcissism. Obama, commenting upon his sudden public approval of gay marriage, was just shown stating that he couldn't stand the idea of soldiers and sailors out there fighting on HIS behalf when they were not free to be in gay relationships.
Forget the gay marriage issue. Our military is fighting on HIS behalf?
Could he be dumb enough to have confused behalf and behest?
We all have a bit of healthy narcissism, it is what helps us overcome negative situations and strive for goals and have a normal level of self-esteem. With Obama, as with other Narcissists, what evolves is a very unhealthy, unbalanced, need to be loved and appreciated because sometime in their life they suffered an extremes sense of being unworthy.
Obama's narcissistic personality probably resulted from not knowing who his father really was, being dragged to Indonesia by his mother to live with another man who, apparently, had no close or loving ties with Obama, and of course, being abandoned by Mom to live with grandparents who didn't seem to happy about the situation and having a bi-racial grandson.
All of his characteristics can be explained when one considers the bizarre childhood he had , not knowing who he was, where he fit in, and who cared about him. It is sad, really...but worse...it is dangerous for our country to have this sick man as our leader. Obama is a text-book-classic example of a malignant narcissist. Just as most dictators are and were.
It is not just a point of ridicule to say that and it is not meant to be a real criticism, because the man is really mentally sick. Obama has a very serious condition and I am sure those who are closest to him, and promote/support him are well aware that his psyche is quite disturbed. I am sure they have continually done whatever they could, whatever was necessary, to keep him from breaking down under the pressures of criticism and failures. But they have used him for their own anti-American, hateful goals because the Narcissist needs to be loved, adored, and needed every minute of his life and that makes him gullible. As long as his puppeteers feed his fragile ego, he willingly performs as they wish.
This is why, for years and years, I have said that all high level elected officials should have to undergo a thorough psychiatric test before being having their name on a ballot. Just like corporations and industries administer personality tests when choosing and employing people for leadership and management positions. Those tests are performed to help employers weed out people who are not emotionally well balanced, not able to handle pressures and criticisms, are not good team players, will lie, cheat, and steal, and whose leadership abilities are below par. People who run our country should be, at the least, subjected to the same scrutiny as those who are hired to serve in high administrative and management positions.
The Emperor B is really using the royal WE. See, it , life, is all about him and how as former Speaker Jim Wright once said, ‘we just want to help you’, from your money, liberty, and choices. So do not be surprised that this mentally challenged Prez thinks he is not only the Savior as some claim but the enth degree of what a real Prez should be in America. His Tyranny.
On behalf of the Constitution, we the people have decided that President Obama truly becomes a bigger asshole by the day. Hence
Uh, okay. For a president to say this is arrogance. No president, unless he's full of himself, would say this.
Would Bush, Clinton, Bush II or even Carter have ever said this? How about FDR or Kennedy? Can you honestly say they would have said this or would have said, "Fighting on behalf of the U.S. Or... The American People." Really, after all this man has said and done you give him slack?
You might. Even many 0bama supporters will think it’s great having no clue what it really says about him or them.
noob supporting 0bastard. Doesn’t look good.
“Wasnt it Indonesia and wasnt Suharto the so-called President, in power for decades with virtual absolute power? And didnt Obama spend his formative years in Indonesia?”
You’re right! And we get our very own years of living dangerously. Wayang, indeed.
The “noob” may have been correct. Doesn’t make said “noob” an Obama lover.
Uncontrollable urges to marry women whose butts are four axe handles wide with hateful, snarling countenances
Overwhelming urges to be dominated by these same women using chains and whips
Commonly these things are also confused with something found on my boot after walking out in the pasture.
It’s suspicious. I can’t imagine any conservative freeper I am familiar with saying that. It’s a disgustingly narcissistic statement for Zero to have made. It’s fair game for slamming him.
He’s evil and extremely dangerous. I think we’ll see a nasty show down.
Obama is quoted as having said, while still in Indonesia, that he would be president, and would have the army protecting him personally. It's not a new thought w him. Otoh, if his comment is just regular presidential talk [as opposed to Malignant Narcissism in overdrive] then surely other POTUSs have said the same or very similar. I would be extremely interested in reading their quotes; thank you in advance.
“This is why, for years and years, I have said that all high level elected officials should have to undergo a thorough psychiatric test before being having their name on a ballot.”
Down through the decades, I’ve seen news commentators apologizing during election campaigns for the usual silliness that goes on with campaign rhetoric, etc. In the final analysis, they contended that the saving grace of all this apparent political nonsense was that our political process made it impossible for a fool or a nut-case from becoming President.
Our problem now is that many of the old assumptions no longer hold. The American masses no longer have the common sense wisdom derived from responsibilities such as raising a family and acquiring a productive trade. Now we look more like Rome in its decline when the populace were in love with their crazy, depraved Emperors.
People with a paucity of useful skills or knowledge have been sold the idea that they were being victimized by an uncaring society. Working women demand the “right” of free contraceptives and instant free abortions to rectify the consequences of recreational sex, courtesy the taxpayer. Gay men have demanded, and attained, the right to openly express their sexuality in the armed forces in spite of long past experience that this has a devastating effect on morale. A black op-ed columnist recently wrote that George Zimmerman should volunteer to spend 8 to 10 years in prison to dissuade racial violence.
Such “victimized” groups, who in aggregate may actually form a majority of the population, have fallen for the romantic notion of the mysterious stranger who has come to save them from the miserliness of the few who just want to be left alone. They voted for someone whose past is virtually nonexistent, who promised during his campaign for president to “fundamentally transform” this country, and whose associations provide a certainty that he has always been a leftist radical. And after a disastrous first term, he has at least even chance of being elected to a second term in which is he will be virtually unaccountable for his actions. We’ve gone from common sense to irresponsibility on steroids.
I agree with you at least 200%.
Posting history tells the tale.
I've never seen people go so far out of their way to explain and excuse the creepy things a POTUS does and says as they do for this one. It's very strange. At some point you'd think people would get tired of cleaning up Obama’s messes, verbal and otherwise. So far, that point has not come.
The noob’s posting history is clear, as posting histories usually are. I also don’t understand anyone supporting said noob. Weird. There is nothing - not one dang thing - that Zero has ever said, every done, or could ever say, or do, that is praiseworthy, benign, or even neutral. He is 100% evil.
It is just like when Obama had the troops give HIM a shoutout. I have never seen a POTUS do that.
Then to have the cavalry ride to the rescue of the OP—very odd/awkward. As in, if the OP’s explanation holds water, then provide examples [from other presidents]. If no examples exist then the OP’s explanation is BS. That's not too hard a concept to grasp, you would think. Strange days indeed.
I saw this tonight and almost keeled over...
so Freudian, it’s pretty damn obvious he MEANT it...
it was NOT a mis-speak...
hope vets take this and run with it like the Swift boaters...
I’ll send money, for sure...
Obama turned the American Dream into a nightmare...but he only epitomizes the problems that have been brewing in this country for years. Because of the continual focus on self-gratification, sex, envy, pride, and greed which has been promoted by the Liberals millions of Americans have lost sight of the values and morals that led to our great success as a country.
Sorry - have to disagree with you...
this is an incident where he showed us what is behind the curtain...
he thinks that it is ALL about him - the fawning press, the I’ll go around congress, Justice enforcing only what they want, the family vaycays at our expense, the celeb shows at the white house...a pattern you CANNOT deny...
after it was aired tonight on Fox (Bret Baier’s show), Baier asked Krauthammer about it and ole Charles rose to the challenge...
he asked if Ike would’ve said the troops stormed Normandy on his behalf,,,really nailed it.
No, mongo141. You don’t owe any one of us an apology. Thank you for your service, and may God bless you for defending us!
Thank you for your service in defending us, and may God bless you, too, pabianice!
Did you not see The 300 or actually read Greek history?
The Spartans were not homosexuals. The Athenians on the other hand....
There was even a line where Leonidas said (speaking of the Athenians) "And if those philosophers and boy-lovers have found that kind of nerve, then..."
‘_______ever end up with a megalomanic lunatic in the WH?’
Dunno for sure.
Every few months after 9-11, for whatever reason, I would wonder when it would EVer be possible for a person with a Muslim background to run for/become president of the USA.
With a snicker, I would think: NEVER!
And then came 2008.
And I did hear ‘some guy’s’ resounding keynote speech, - 2006, was it? - and thought: ‘uh, oh - here comes the next Demo’s star.’ A senator. But I hadn’t yet heard ‘anything Islam’ involving this electrifying speaker.
Do you know what it feels like to me to have the very next president after GWBush and 9-11
be a person who is - at the least - steeped a bit in Islam (’sweetest sound’ - perfect accent) and lived and educated in a Muslim country, Muslim stepfather, after pondering the idea month after month, and always think it would NEVER happen????!!!
I was working in a polling place in CA the last 2 hours that fateful day, and people kept coming in and saying this guy Obama was winning all over the country! I COULDN’T believe it. It can’t be true! It musn’t be true! Surely it’s a mistake! My friends there couldn’t believe it.
I haven’t awakened from the nightmare - - -
After about 3 months, I thought he would implode. Didn’t know when - just that he would implode. I’m rather surprised he hasn’t - yet. . .
Ich fahshtein! Und Ich ne spraechen zi Deutch either!
WOW! It’s like interpreting tongues! LOL! I knew exactly what you said! hahahahahahahahahahahahah
OH GREAT DEAR LEADER,
How I hope that my soldier hubby gets the honor and privilege of going off to fight for your honor again. And maybe he will even be able to come home gay.
What a pompous something or other (I need to be awake longer before I can come up with better insults).
Indeed it does and it reeks of the scent of troll.
A President might say “fighting on OUR behalf” as a shortcut way of referring to the American people.
But he’s the CinC who orders the troops into war: he absolutely can’t say “fighting on MY behalf” without being revealed as the worst kind of tone-deaf malignant narcissist.
Mindset of an African dictator.
Guess he missed the part that our armed forces are called the US military, not the obama military.
Obama is a dictator. And those who voted for him last time in 2008, need to vote against him!
This article historically explains just WHO Obama and his movement truly are!
But Mr. Obama actually did bare his soul unintentionally today (perhaps the Biden disease is catching) with his astonishing characterization of American fighting men and women, whom he referred to as those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf. Really?
Most Americans thought they were fighting for the country, not on Barack Obamas behalf. Slip of the tongue, to be sure, but can one think of another president whod have made it? They are fighting under his command, under his orders, to be sure, but this particular locution is offensive and solipsistic. Mr. Obama has switched his position on the sanctity of marriage back and forth and has a new one, again, today, revealed when politics made that advisable to him and to his campaign. Whether this is the end or he will evolve some more is anyones guess.
But lets leave our soldiers out of this. They arent fighting for Mr. Obama and his campaign, and no one sent them out to risk their lives to win same sex marriage.
Its all about me.....>>>>>>>>>>>
Segue on the confused mind of failure, its all about me.
Really its all about exchanging ME for YOU! A secret Obama has never discovered, and likely will NEVER discover, as a narcist.
What about me:( futility of Obama)

And we civilians thank you very much for protecting and defending our Constitution when your CinC would throw it right under the bus, the pink bus.
I am so close to praying for the military to march on D.C. and rid America of this Marxist usurper who is illegally occupying the office of the Presidency.
The military swear alligience to the Office of the President
not to the political person who happens to be President.
We cannot adequately express our gratitude to you. Thank you for your Honorable and Dedicated service to the United States.
God bless you.
Thank you for your service as well. I remember what the 101st did at Bastogne and in the Ahe Shau valley as well. Peace Brother.
Best regards to you, as well. Stay safe, brother.
The military DO NOT swear allegiance to the Office of the President. We swore allegiance to the United States and agreed to follow the orders of “those appointed over us.” The word “president” appears nowhere in the oath.
"I swear by almighty God this sacred oath: I will render unconditional obedience to the Fuehrer of the German Reich and people, Adolf Hitler, Supreme Commander of the Wehrmacht, and, as a brave soldier, I will be ready at any time to stake my life for this oath."
I guess we all pick up a word or two here and there. Heck, I took Spanish in high school. Can’t speak that either. lol
That is excellent! Bookmarked and sent out to the e-mail list. 0bungles only thought about something like that would be “how can I use that to promote me?”
“the first gay superpower since Sparta”
That was from Mark Steyn. The rest of my rant was in my own words and was heartfelt.
I really thought “the 300” was a silly movie. I just don’t care for the “comic book” movie genre. But I realize that the event was “real” history, which tends to be exaggerated by those who write it (the victors).
