Valerie Jarrett, Obama's Rasputin, unwittingly provided us an answer to the question of why the Obama Presidency is such a man-caused disaster.
There are few people who are close to the notoriously insular Barack Obama (a former aide, Neera Tanden, said that "Obama doesn't call anyone, and he's not close to almost anyone. It's stunning that he's in politics, because he really doesn't like people") but Valerie Jarrett is among the select few. They have been friends for decades; she introduced Barack to Michelle; she is a constant presence in the White House, and highly unusual for a White House aide, enjoys her own Secret Service protective detail. And when she described Barack Obama as having been "bored to death his whole life" she helped explained what lies behind a failed presidency.
People familiar with Barack Obama's history realize he has a very low threshold for boredom. This is a trait shared by many millennials: they bore easily, and that character flaw is one reason employers refrain from hiring them. Yet they feel entitled to promotions as a way for others to display gratitude towards them and to give them an ego booster shot. They want to be stimulated and entertained all the time and find work tedious and...boring.
Obama's boredom began early.
When interviewed upon becoming the first black Harvard Law Review President he told the Associated Press, "I'm not interested in the suburbs. The suburbs bore me"; by inference, suburbanites bore him, as well -- and we know how he feels about small-town Americans). Ah...to be jaded and judgmental so early in life and to feel free to spout stereotypes.

Children and fish are attracted to sliney things.
He got the biggest ‘participation trophy’ever handed out just for showing up.
The only thing that really interests him is the platinum EBT card that comes with the job.
Disgusting. This man is not or ever will be qualified for even dog catcher, but here he is POTUS. We have the stupidest people in the world right here in the US.
The final result of the every child must win a participation ribbon.
This result I wholly blame on the ‘self-esteem’ movement. When no wins or loses, it stifles all creativity, curiosity, and creates an excess of the ego. The result is the narcissism of the adult child.
BUT...I will also dare to take this one step further. This is also the result of handing people, in the case of 0bama, a minority every entitlement he held his hand out for.
In the grander context consider his recent, ‘no negotiation’ stance over the budget/debt etc. The man has never been told, “No,” and as president he wields his adult temper tantrums to the detriment of the nation.
Boredom? Boredom you say? No, it is the dysfunction of an over indulged adult man-child. In fact, one might diagnosis him with affluenza. the ...lack of motivation experienced by people who have made or inherited large amounts of money ... or dare I say people who have had everything in life handed to them.
He obviously does not see himself as president of a thriving republic of freedom-loving citizens----in his befuddled mind he represents self-made victims, slackers, do-nothings, layabeds, gutter snipes, welchers, and other social misfits.
Obama's latest---his stupid "income inequality whine is part and parcel of progressives' greed/envy/entitlement stupidity---the Pay-Me-I'm-A-Victim scam. More akin to a dirt-poor Third World satrap than a thriving republic ruled by laws and market forces.
Obama can't seem to rise above his inane "community organizer" mentality. When he was crawling around the nabe preaching envy and greed----duping people on food stamps into believing they could payoff mortgages (ne'er do wells who taxpayers were forced to bail out).
Addicting people to government handouts is the "community organizer's" con game--to get votes--buying loyalty w/ other people's tax dollars.
Of course these people live in bizarro land.
Yes. Putin. It's why he gave Poot the stink eye at the G20. obongo was too impotent to do anything else.
Ha! Finally me and Zero agree on something!
He is a burned out communist druggie with a god complex... his brain quit functioning at the age of 20.
Jarrett is probably the only person known to the public who knows Obama’s real identity and the identity of those who prepped him and manipulated him into the presidency.
Gibbs had his chance.
Now the entire country suffers because of his inaction.
I would think he would be calling Loveable Lindsey and McPain all the time.
And the American people grow less capable every year of “self-government”; so they look for big government to rectify ever inconvenience.
No, the American people would storm the prison to get him released.
No, Reagan was the yin to Carter's yang, and now we will have the next Reagan for Obama’s sins.
He’s not bored, he’s frightened and is covering up. Putin knows what Obama is. Obama knows he’s in over his head. He’s just playing a part, and he’s scared to death that everyone is going to find out.
The Emporer has no clothes. He knows it. We know it.
Seems like the perfect puppet. Easily manipulated by powerful forces that have his strings.
Well ... I was already bored of him on his first day in office.
This description of Obama does not surprise me in the slightest. I went through a period of feeling bored when I was young but one day I woke up and realized that if I am bored it cannot be anyone’s fault but mine. When the bored blame others for their own boredom madness follows, in my opinion anyway.
He’s out of his depth alright. I’m surprised he ran for a second term.
Someday, it will all come out, hopefully sooner rather than later.
Let’s waterboard her to see if she knows anything.
We already know that Barry knows nothing about anything. His brain was fried some years back.
And most of the American media knew he was a fraud, too.
His Presidential Library is going to be a very boring place to visit.
Rectify? It's damn near killing us!
Drafting his memoirs, right out of law school, feet up on his desk, while the law firm’s senior partners indulged him? Wow! I wonder who could write a check that big?
Yes, but it will be fully staffed and equipped for the intelligence-impaired.
The U.S. Presidency is viewed as beneath him - he feels he’s “slumming it” until something better comes along...
- this is how Dennis Miller & (I believe Jonah Goldberg) characterized the ingrate, last week on the radio. Thought it was perfect. Obama is such a moron: he doesn’t know how absolutely good our country is, nor how lucky he is to hold this job. LOSER!
It is difficult to like someone who does not really like anyone but himself.
Which begs the question, why does anyone like this man? Because they are brain-dead?
His presidential library should be a house of mirrors: Lots of illusion but NOTHING else inside.
I guess we found out.
Well if he’s bored now wait til he serves 10-20 in Leavenworth. :-)
I haven’t read your article yet, but the head of student health services at UC Berkeley came to that same conclusion in 1963!
Easily manipulated by powerful forces that have his strings.
...Early formed entitlement mentality syndrome....
and the acronym for such a malady -EFEMS? Gotcha a twofer there...
Of course. Hussein is just her stooge.
Mark for later
Barry has a lot of mental health issues. I suspect they have nothing to do with the causation of his patterns of drug abuse.
More to the point, his [probable and ] continuing history of drug abuse is probably a manifestation of his serious ongoing mental health issues.
