The only problem w the ‘he’s doing all this on purpose’ theory is that he’s a Malignant Narcissist. MNs hate above all else to be laughed at. A close second, closely related, is to appear stupid. Right now Obama looks incredibly incompetent & has become a laughingstock. The idea that he wd willingly become so just to promote Marxism, etc., doesn’t fly w the nature of Malignant Narcissism. In Obama’s world, everything subordinates to him. He comes first. Everything else is a distant second.
Anyone who doubts Obama’s priorities just has never spent any real time w a MN. They are incapable of sacrificing themselves for a cause larger than themselves. In their world, there is no cause larger than themselves. Obama believes he can achieve his political goals while looking suave, brilliant & amazingly competent. Right now he’s furious & frustrated about being ‘burned’ by lesser individuals whose incompetence has cast him in a bad light. This won’t play well for him. He needs adulation more than the average person needs air. It will be interesting to see where he goes from here.
It doesn't matter how narcissistic he is, he has people to answer to.
Unfortunately, we are not among them.
