Theres a third-world style humanitarian crisis on our border. Terrorists have established their own state, a Caliphate, no less. Israel is on the cusp of war with the Palestinians. The economy cratered the first quarter of the year. And here is your president, joshing today in Denver after a night of billiards and pizza.
Meanwhile, President Obamas aides are feeding the bosss churlish insouciance.
The White House has been promoting its latest PR stunt, The Bear is Loose, which features vignettes and videos of Obama the bear happily hop-scotching off his programmed schedule and staging impromptu appearances wherever he likes, presumably with his anguished Secret Service detail trailing behind.
Wrote senior advisor Dan Pfeiffer, who, one would think, should be focusing on more serious matters, in a White House blog post Tuesday: . . .

Yes, even those children coming across the border are probably more responsible.
Barky’s succeeding into turning America into a 3rd world $hithole. The GOP-e’s are all lining up to kiss his backside (and frontside), and what else can he do but skip happily like a little girl.
Delusional? How about divorced from reality and evil, that fits better.
He thinks he wins whichever way this goes. He's out campaigning and playing pool without a care in the world.
“The GOP either gives him the amnesty program he is demanding or the media will slaughter them on the border crisis.”
Really, the GOP doesn’t need to be threatened to do amnesty - they want it to happen, just not be blamed for it.
The President is an incompetent doodyhead.
I'm hoping there is still a little bit of fight in some of them. There is no doubt that the GOP establishment types are in the sack for the chamber of commerce. The Christian types are worried about saving the children. That doesn't leave much of an opposition.
Obama is a malignant narcissist with sociopathic tendencies.
Below is a discussion on Criminal Personality by Stanton Samenow . I’ll leave it to the reader to determine how well it fits the actions of this President
The rejuvenated focus of the criminal personality study aimed to see the world as the criminals viewed it. In general, the criminal saw the world in “chess-board” terms, as people were there pawns to manipulate at will for their own personal gain . The anti-social behavior developed when the offenders were young, some as young as age four. The criminal, early in life, consciously removed himself from the rules of society. The conventional activities and interests of his peers were abhorred by the fledgling criminal . Fighting, lying, and stealing were very frequent activities by the young criminal. Notably, the criminal is pro-active in his approach of rejection to others. Consequently, he is the first to establish polarity between himself and others. Additionally:
he shies away from affection(Nott,1977:*)
he is very restless, dissatisfied, and irritable(Samenow,1984:26)
he perfunctorily engages in civil communication only to prevent others from being suspicious of his behavior
he considers requests from teachers, parents, and others as impositions
he continually sets himself apart from others
he is enamored with living a life of excitement, at whatever expense
he habitually experiences anger as a way of life
he lacks empathy
he feels no obligation to anyone except his own interests
he has no understanding of responsible decision making, having prejudged situations
he has a daily struggle with “Murphy’s Law”. That is, when something is bound to go wrong, it probably will. Criminals cannot cope with this obstacle well
All told, fifty-two thinking patterns were distinguishable in the criminal personality. These were considered “errors” in thinking, and though not unique to criminals, they were displayed to extreme magnitudes by criminals. Though criminals may differ in the types of crime that they commit, and their modus operandi, they exhibit identifiable and classifiable paralleled errors in thinking. For example, the white collar criminal and the inner-city street drug dealer come from very different backgrounds, yet they conduct their lives very similarly according to the way that they consistently supersede their wants and desires over those of others. Importantly, the criminal act is the end product of a specific thinking process and personality characteristics. The criminal personality precedes the criminal act. But criminality goes well beyond arrestability. It pertains to the way in which a person acts, thinks, and lives his life. Because a person has a criminal personality, however, does not necessarily mean that he will have a criminal record.
he first to be victimized by the criminals are their parents(Samenow,1984:25). Parents are not exempt from the habitual exploits of the criminal. The offender perceives people as being beneficial or detrimental to achieving their wants. Essentially, parents, like other people are objectified. Because the criminal does not see things from another’s perspective, his emotional investment to family is minimal. Parents and family, therefore, serve a utilitarian purpose for the criminal. Though criminals are very selfish and demanding, they will often try to ensure that their parents have a least a decent concept of them, in the event that their parents’ devotion can be exploited for the need of money, material wants, or even help from punishment from the law. Yet if the parents try to effect a positive change in the criminal (for example, with counseling), the criminal has little reserve from misrepresenting the parents intentions by blaming them for his problems.
Criminals see the world in “chess-board” terms. People are viewed as their puppets and pawns. This is perhaps the defining trait of the criminal. The world is seen by him as a forum for his coercion, scheming, and manipulation. As the criminal is walking down the street or through stores he is always scheming; thinking that no one knows what he is up to and that he can take advantage of them whenever he wants. Not surprisingly, spouses and companions are to serve a subservient role for the criminal. They are to serve a utilitarian purpose, like parents, for the criminal. Incidentally, criminals do not feel love like non-criminals can, for they lack the feelings of empathy necessary for love. People that serve functional roles in the lives of the criminals are seen as property, and criminals have an acute vision for detecting those that can serve their wants and needs. Because their lifestyle is conformed around the idea of taking rather than giving, few exceptions exist. The most notable one is when criminals “give” in order to impress someone of their importance and stature. (Goble,1978:2).
The criminal’s capacity and desire for manipulation extends beyond the realm of personal abuse. Work, for example, provides an avenue for the criminal’s exploits, and it is often perceived as serving that role by the criminal. Ironically, although the criminal may very well have the means to make a lot of money legitimately, he willingly selects illegitimate means for honest work means little. The reason for this is generally two-fold. First, the criminal is appalled at being told what to do and how to conduct himself. He feels as though he should only pledge allegiance to his own standards and rules. Second, the criminal is easily bored with following established protocols that serve the function of anyone or anything other than himself. Excitement is the fuel that sustains life for the criminal, and eschewing the rules of work will often provide this fuel. Yet, because the criminal protects himself from feelings of accountability, he is quick to provide excuses when he is dismissed from a job or unable to find one. Claiming that there are no decent jobs available or that his previous job was “below” him are frequent excuses employed by the criminal to justify his aversion to work. Of course there are some criminals that are frequent contributors to the work force, and even hold positions of relatively high esteem within their field of work. But the prevailing purpose of work is to exploit it for there own gain; one that might very well be material. White-collar criminals, for instance, are those that pointedly use the arena of work as a grounds for selfish improprieties
Like work, school is generally a place to be disliked by the criminal. There is a belief that when schools fail to meet the needs of children, they eject kids from the mainstream. In other words, delinquency is a result of blocked goal attainment. Actually, Samenow contends, it is the children who reject school long before school rejects them. The criminal rejects the school environment because he doesn’t, as with work, accept being subjugated to others. Some delinquents will fail in school based upon this reasoning, not because they are incapable of performing well academically. Yet, there are others who do fairly well in school. The motivation for these criminals, however, is not to succeed in academics, but to provide an appearance of them abiding by the rules while they continue to behave in criminal ways. This keeps their parents and teachers from entangling with their criminal ventures.
Despite such rancorous behavior, the criminal has a decent self-concept. He has his own set of morals, for traditional ones do not significantly apply. Although callous and daring, he can be warm and friendly, though this behavior is somewhat limited. He feels as though he is basically a decent person, despite a plethora of crimes and injustices to others he may have committed. Yet, he is inherently hypocritical as he doesn’t see other criminals in such a positive way as he sees himself. For example, a thief may view property crimes as being innocuous. However, if another thief steals from his family’s home, he feels as though that crime should be punished to a high magnitude.

“The President is an incompetent doodyhead.”
From the perspective of his intentions for America he is doing very well. Overwhelming chaos is his intent. Cloward and Piven are being served very effectively.
