  • Obama, Israel, and the Politics of Narcissism

        President Obama’s much publicized speech (May 19, 2011) to the Arab world created a new dimension in presidential character — the passive narcissist. Seldom, if ever, has any president been so infatuated with his own words at the expense of realityWith the American dollar on a downward spiral, the president now promises billions of dollars to the so called “Arab democracy movement.” Calling something a “democracy movement” doesn’t make it so. Straining the financial resources of the nation for the chimera of democracy does not enhance our national security.In Libya, the democracy movement is run by Gitmo alumni tied...

Questioned at a recent appearance about the spiraling fuel costs, Obama said, "Get used to it" – and with an insouciant grin and chortle, he told another person at the event, who complained about the effect high fuel prices were having on his family, to "get a more fuel-efficient car."

    The White House Press Office has refused to give the Boston Herald full access to President Obama’s Boston fund-raiser today, in e-mails objecting to the newspaper’s front page placement of a Mitt Romney op-ed, saying pool reporters are chosen based on whether they cover the news “fairly.” “I tend to consider the degree to which papers have demonstrated to covering the White House regularly and fairly in determining local pool reporters,” White House spokesman Matt Lehrich wrote in response to a Herald request for full access to the presidential visit. “My point about the op-ed was not that you ran...

    Delving anew into an explosive issue, President Barack Obama stood near the border with Mexico on Tuesday and declared it more secure than ever, trying to build pressure on Republicans to take on a comprehensive immigration overhaul—and eagerly working to show vital Hispanic voters that he is not the one standing in the way. Countering Republican calls to focus on border security before moving to a comprehensive overhaul, Obama said their demands have been more than met by his administration but "they'll never be satisfied." He boasted of increasing border patrol agents, nearing completion of a border fence, and screening...

"I felt very strongly there was a strategic imperative to go after him," the President said even though he admitted they had no photograph and no direct evidence of bin Laden's presence. The President also said he was "about as active as any project that I've been involved with since I've been President...

It's about BHO, and BHO alone. Congratulations, BHO, here are a few things for which you took credit in the 74 sentences: "I directed Leon Panetta... to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority..."

    Seven years ago, in April 2004, President George W. Bush held a formal news conference in which he was asked, "What would your biggest mistake be…and what lessons have you learned from it?" Bush's hemming and hawing answer -- in several minutes of flailing about, he never managed to come up with a single mistake to cite -- was widely criticized in the days that followed. On Wednesday, President Obama held a town hall at the headquarters of Facebook in Palo Alto, California, during which he was asked, "If you had to do anything differently during your first four years,...

    The Oxford American Dictionary defines the word uppity as "self-important: arrogant." It is taking liberties or assuming airs beyond one's station; presumptuous. During the 2008 presidential campaign, Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, a conservative Republican from Georgia, let slip what critics had been saying was the subtext of many of the attacks on Barack Obama: He's "uppity." The Hill, a Capitol Hill newspaper, wrote that Westmoreland was discussing Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's acceptance speech outside the House chamber when he veered into his thoughts on Michelle and Barack Obama. "Just from what little I've seen of her and Mister Obama, Senator Obama,...

Barack and Michelle Obama simply have no shame. They're imbued with ego, pride, chutzpah, arrogance and vain conceit that seemingly have no bounds. No matter what gaffe they commit, whatever they do that's wrong, ridiculous, crass, uncouth, rude, improper or even – dare I say, unconstitutional – they carry on as though nothing untoward had happened.

Obama wouldn't pick it up in the first place. He'd let it go to answering machine. He'd be too busy chasing the nearest camera. Obama is the "Girls Gone Wild" president: Stick a lens in front of him and he'll take off his shirt, mince about like a coed, and babble nonsensical nothings to an audience oddly fascinated by his antics.

The latest quip came this week at a fundraiser in Boston. "There's no weakness in us trying to reach out and seeing if we can find common ground," he told attendees. "Now, there are going to be times where we can't. I was born in Hawaii. What can I say? I mean, I just ... I can't change those facts." The "fact," however, still has not been publicly documented, as he's not only refused to release his...

There also was “little warning” before protests erupted in Egypt, leading to a foreign policy scramble in the White House, the wire says, citing an official who spoke anonymously. The criticism from the White House comes as the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Dianne Feinstein, wants to know when Obama was briefed about the unfolding crises in north Africa. “These events should not have come upon...

So on this notable occasion, the White House released a statement from President Obama on the awarding of the prize to Liu in absentia. And this...

As Charles Zanor reports in today’s Science Times, the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders — due out in 2013 and known as D.S.M.-5 — has eliminated five of the 10 personality disorders that are listed in the current edition. The best known of these is narcissistic personality disorder. It is a puzzle why the manual’s committee on personality disorders has decided...

    Inflated self-esteem can be decidedly counterproductive. American students, for example, took first place in self-judged mathematical ability in a comparative study of eight countries, but last place in actual mathematical competency. Korean students, in contrast, ranked themselves last in self-judged mathematical skills and took first place in actual mathematical performance. The idea that self-esteem produces better performance, reversing the direction of better performance boosting self-esteem, is clearly a concept that’s been oversold. But we feel good — whether it’s self-evaluations of leadership skills, looks, personality or math ability, it’s not unusual for 25 percent of American students to self-judge themselves...

Unable to face the dismal failure that he is, the narcissist partially withdraws from reality.

    Why has Barack Obama failed so spectacularly? Is he too dogmatically liberal or too pragmatic? Is he a socialist, or an anticolonialist, or a philosopher-president? Or is it possible that Obama’s failures stem from something simpler: vanity. Politicians as a class are particularly susceptible to mirror-gazing. But Obama’s vanity is overwhelming. It defines him, his politics, and his presidency. It’s revealed in lots of little stories. There was the time he bragged about how one of his campaign volunteers, who had tragically died of breast cancer, “insisted she’s going to be buried in an Obama T-shirt.” There was the Nobel...

Amidst the practiced pauses and detached narration of the crash came a litany of excuses, evasions, and arrogant denials. He more or less cast himself as the victim of a "bad economy," as if two years of sending anti-business signals to employers had nothing to do with the high jobless rate.

    It could give a sense of superior American organisation, or be an indicator of a deep-set persecution complex. It could also be a manifestation of Uncle Sam’s penchant for a show of strength. The matter pertains to US president Barack Obama’s planned visit to Mani Bhavan —the Gandhi museum — on November 6, soon after he reaches Mumbai. On Monday, US secret agents visited the museum to plan Obama’s security detail. They were accompanied by officers of Mumbai Police and civic officials of the D ward (where Mani Bhavan is located). While inspecting the route and the buildings lining up...

    Maybe what Obama needs is his own reality show. Better yet, a 24/7 Obama reality network. George Neumayr at The American Spectator points to Obama’s exceptionally absurd and maudlin whining about how nobody is filming all of the moments of great anguish he suffers in his deep concern for the well being of the American people. Obama’s response to the utter destruction of his party on election night was predictable enough. The Narcissist in Chief is not about to suddenly develop some awareness of how his behavior affects others. If he had that ability, he’d be far less menacing. The...

    The message in Portland in 2008 was hope. The president returns to talk about mistrust and threats. With the 2008 Democratic primary race all but won, Barack Obama appeared at a massive outdoor rally here and delivered a message that was unique by the cutthroat standards of American political campaigns. "We're not going to worry about what other folks are doing," Obama told a crowd of 75,000 at the waterfront event in May 2008. "We're going to try to focus on what we think we can do for America." Obama returned to Portland on Wednesday night and delivered a different...

    Obama says he's a 'pretty good president' 50 mins ago SEATTLE, Washington (AFP) – Barack Obama's approval ratings might have slipped, but he gave himself an appreciative job appraisal Thursday, saying on the campaign trail that he was a "pretty good president." Obama gave the upbeat assessment of his own performance during a stem-winding speech to an overflow crowd at a rally for Washington state senator Patty Murray, part of a four-day mid-term election campaign swing. "I've been inspired by you. Wherever I go, traveling across this country, especially when I meet young people, I'm reminded of your energy, and...

    American Thinker ^ | October 21, 2010 | By James Lewis
    I think Barack and Michelle Obama are secret totalitarians -- in spirit, if not yet in fact -- who believe mostly in their own superior intentions. Michelle really does think the country needs an all-powerful Food Mom who will make the kids eat right, so they never get fat. Even though Michelle can't control her own appetite any more than the rest of us can. Human beings love to eat because our ancestors lived in constant fear of famine. Humans got fat when food was plentiful, because the chances were good that a drought or a freeze was coming soon...

    Conservative columnist Alan Caruba wrote a most excellent article, where he posed the question as to whether or not Obama is a moron. This article will answer that question. Stupid is, as stupid does and the following is what the Obama´s have presented as their presidential legacy, for the national perusal: This couple has transformed national service into a permanent White House vacation, including a free pass for Obama´s illegal alien aunt to get out of jail. Barack H. Obama thinks he is president and Tiger Woods, rolled-into-one, in that by his actions, he shows he would rather play golf,...

    Washington has not witnessed so much top level White House intrigue since October 20, 1973, when a Saturday night saw President Nixon fire the Watergate independent counsel, the U.S. attorney general, and the deputy attorney general in the “Saturday Night Massacre.” Just ten days earlier, Vice President Spiro Agnew resigned after being charged with accepting bribes while governor of Maryland.

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is always ready to share news from his day with his 1.7 million Twitter followers. Tuesday evening was no exception when he ran across an exotic bird in the southwest Arizona city of Yuma. "Guess what just walked by ... in Yuma?!" he tweeted around 6 p.m. PST (see photo below).
