Skip to comments.Is Barack Obama a Compulsive Liar?
Posted on 10/01/2012 3:53:26 AM PDT by Flotsam_Jetsome
In an earlier column I asked the question is Barack Obama a compulsive liar or a sociopath? (h)
A sociopath is typically defined as someone who lies incessantly to get their way and does so with little concern for others. A sociopath is often goal-oriented (i.e., lying is focused--it is done to get one's way). Sociopaths have little regard or respect for the rights and feelings of others. Sociopaths are often charming and charismatic, but they use their talented social skills in manipulative and self-centered ways.
A compulsive liar:
A compulsive liar is defined as someone who lies out of habit. Lying is their normal and reflexive way of responding to questions. Compulsive liars bend the truth about everything, large and small. For a compulsive liar, telling the truth is very awkward and uncomfortable while lying feels right. Compulsive lying is usually developed in early childhood, due to being placed in an environment where lying was necessary.
While Barack Obama exhibits traits from both categories, it is becoming increasingly clear that he is primarily a compulsive liar. How else to explain the lies and obfuscations that so easily come forth regardless of whom he may be talking to or the subject matter. His sociopathic skills come to the fore in his ability to manipulate others to join him in his these prevarications, or to exploit the celebrity culture that has overwhelmed a deliberately ill-educated American society.

Romney should open his end of the first debate with something along the lines of Joe Wilson's declamation "You lie!" and we can then watch the meltdown unfold apace. It wouldn't take very long, methinks.
He’s a Democrat...they LIE...it’s what they do BEST!!
Yes, next question.
His Muslim upbringing says lying is mandatory.
I truly believe that if “Obama” were called a liar to his face, forcefully, repeatedly and unabashedly, the guy would completely lose it in short order, likely having a total public meltdown on national television. His ego is that fragile.
Jarrett is there to keep hifree dear ego intact as much as for any other reason, as Sycophant in Chief.
I don’t see the two as being mutually exclusive. Obama is a sociopath who lies compulsively.
He is without question a narcissist. By definition they have serious issues with the truth.
His fragile ego.
Stupid autocorrect spellcheck.
“Hes a Democrat...they LIE...its what they do BEST!!”
Although he is better than most.
Right up there with the Clintons in the BEST LIAR dept!
a compulsive lier? yes
a pathological lier? NO...he does no believe his own lies...he lies to change America into the 3rd world paradise he wishes to rule....
"Ummm, I'm actually a foreign exchange student with an expired visa, and ummmm I want to turn the USA into a communist state and I want to destroy Israel and death to those who slander the prophet of Islam..."
Well actually the last one he sort of didn't lie about, he just changed the words a bit. He said "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam" which is pretty much the same thing.
Yes, without question, and a narcissist too. In other words, this guy has more serious and obvious psychological issues than anyone else who has ever occupied the office.
Thieves are always liars and Obama’s a thief.
He is in a sick relationship with the MSM
which “vets” his lies and covers them up.
Both are acting like criminals and traitors,
and only get away with it because the
US Congress is greedy (for itself,
and its own schemes) beyond all comprehension.
At least Clinton "wagged his finger" to let us know when he way lying.
He’s a leftist, a red diaper baby who never punched his way out of the paper bag. His entire worldview is a lie. Whether he is aware of it is another question. He shows no signs of struggling with cognitive dissonance, so probably not. Just a hack leftist, who reads well off a teleprompter.
“The Struggle” is all important. Lying in service to “The Struggle” gets the stamp of approval. “The Struggle” against capitalism, against the richer, whiter 67% of America, against traditional America.
