I have said this over and over since Obama was campaigning the last time. I lived with a narcissist. The signs are very clear once a person has experienced them. Obama is what is called a Malignant Narcissist. There is lots and lots of information on the web that describes that emotional condition...and almost all of it describes Obama.

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.

I think he meant “my behalf” as in an American citizen. I mean, when I say that people died for my right to vote, I don’t mean that I personally hired them or they enlisted in WWII knowing that I personally would be born one day. There is enough to get Obama on without manufacturing a crisis every time the guy takes two steps.

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?

And

Incontinence
Bed Wetting
Erectile Dysfunction
Being Gay
Sociopath
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.

If it's such an innocuous comment, surely other presidents have said it. After all, there have been a lot of them and only one Obama. Can you or the OP find an example of any other POTUS saying the military is fighting for them, in the same way Obama said it?

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'd still like Madison to provide an example...or the OP could do it just as well. I've never heard any president say anything like what Obama said. It sounds weird and Narcissist because it IS weird and Narcissist. However, I'd change my mind at least to a degree if either of the two posters in question could provide a few, or really even one, example of another POTUS using the same language.

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 whole exchange was pretty bizarre. Obama’s statement was singularly creepy, even for him—and that's saying something. You wouldn't expect to see a remark like that defended on a conservative site, if anywhere. [I'm giving moonbats too much credit, I know. But do even they believe the military is fighting on Obama’s behalf? I mean, really believe that, and believe that's as it should be?]

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 agree with all your observations. Now, where do we go from here? Can it get better? Will we learn from the past or are we doomed, as the Romans and all civilizations were that embraced immoral, ungodly, disrespectful and undisciplined behavior?

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.

the first gay superpower since Sparta

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. . .

You’re right.

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.

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 Obama’s behalf. Slip of the tongue, to be sure, but can one think of another president who’d 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 anyone’s guess.
But let’s leave our soldiers out of this. They aren’t fighting for Mr. Obama and his campaign, and no one sent them out to risk their lives to win same sex “marriage.”

“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).
