    Need to Spot a Narcissist? Just Ask Them By Mary Elizabeth Dallas Narcissists don't have much empathy for others, which can be problematic for society. Study suggests that the truly self-obsessed will agree with statement, 'I am a narcissist.' Self-absorbed narcissists can ruin your day, but a new study suggests an easy way to detect one: Just ask. That's because truly narcissistic people don't see the character trait as a flaw and are more than willing to admit to it, say researchers from Ohio State University. "People who are narcissists are almost proud of the fact," study co-author Brad Bushman,...

    Friday at his press conference, President Barack Obama lamented reporters didn't ask what he was going to do for his birthday on Monday. The President was attempting to end the press conference when reporters began yelling out questions. Obama said, "I thought you guys were going to ask me how I was going to spend my birthday. What happened to the happy birthday thing?" When reporters loudly protested the president replied "You're not that pent up. I've been giving questions lately," and he proceeded to answer two more question before ending the event.

    But enough about me. Let's talk about how you feel about me . . . Maybe Barack Obama should modify his famous New Age-y line, uttered after the 2008 Super Tuesday results, to read "I am the one I have been waiting for." In recent times, it's become an entertaining parlor game to count the number of self references in President Obama's public statements. The latest opportunity to play the game comes via a fund-raising email the prez sent out this morning. Defiantly entitled "I Won't Apologize," the short message contains by my count no fewer than 11 self-references [12...

    President Obama said Thursday that he may have suffered from mild concussions while playing football in his childhood. "When I was young and played football briefly, there were a couple times where I'm sure that that ringing sensation in my head and the needing to sit down for a while might have been a mild concussion, and at the time you didn't think anything of it," Obama said at a White House event designed to highlight the risks of sports-related brain injuries. Obama said his experience was common and underscored the need to "change the culture" around concussion injuries in...

    The wheels are coming off the bulldozer that is the Obama administration. But that's not a particularly new development. What's new is that some Democrats and liberal media figures are beginning to speak out. These groups previously have unquestioningly supported Obama. They've gone to astonishing lengths to protect him and conspired with him to deceive the American people in covering up and evading accountability for his multitudinous scandals and his rampant incompetence — all because liberals subscribe to an end-justifies-the-means philosophy of politics and governance. But is it conceivable that with the outrageously egregious Department of Veterans Affairs scandal, Obama's...

    While getting ready for work this morning, I was pondering the current occupant of the White House and wondered what he read. Or did he even read at all? Then I started thinking about novels and thought about sociopaths and narcissists - do they read novels? The reason I ask this question is that 99 percent of the novels has a hero and villian with the hero winning at the end. And the hero usually wins at the end because he/she can see and know what is bigger than themselves. They achieve by sacrificing certain things in order to achieve...

    American Thinker ^ | 1/25/2014 | Jeannie DeAngelis
    Contradicting the faultless, albeit far-fetched image he has of himself, Barack Obama is a man harassed by truth. That's why, judging from his inability to accept personal responsibility, Barack Obama must be living in a constant state of agitated cognitive dissonance. The late Leon Festinger is the social psychologist who proposed the theory of cognitive dissonance. According to Festinger, until the person suffering with perceptual disharmony can find a way to justify wrong actions and decisions, it's impossible to achieve a calm mental state, especially when those wrong actions and decisions challenge the way the cognitively dissonant individual sees himself.That's...

    President Obama said that gridlock on Capitol Hill stemmed from an inability to "penetrate the Republican base" and convince voters there that he's "not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh," rather than his oft-questioned willingness to socialize with lawmakers. In bonus excerpts from an interview with The New Yorker's David Remnick, Obama conceded that there was "no doubt that personal relationships matter at the margins and can tip something over the finish line," and admitted that he "wasn't in a position to work the social scene in Washington" as the father of two young girls....

    President Obama's decision to cancel his planned trip to Moscow to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin was the right thing to do in light of Russia's decision to grant asylum to Edward Snowden. But it also illustrates problems of the president's own making. One of Obama's chief aims upon assuming office was to remake the image of the United States in the world's eyes. And he has -- but not in the way he imagined. Speaking in Cairo in 2009, Obama promised specifically a "new beginning" in American foreign policy. Many interpreted the speech to be merely a criticism...

For more than a year, we have been listening to the conversation about this case – from voices on every side – and we have become very sensitive to the racial context that surrounds this case. We...

Not only is Barack Obama wrong politically, he's not a good guy, "cool," or even moderately likable. To the contrary, he's one of the nastiest, least admirable people in politics and he gets by based on a phony persona he created when he ran for President in 2008 -- along with the help of press corps liberals that work to protect him like they're on his payroll.

Ford's funeral, a model from which his successor should, but will not, learn. As David Paulin points out: A great funeral eulogy and not a single mention of "I" or "me" by President Bush.

Obama offered a eulogy for Inouye, which usually means offering insights into the deceased’s life and character. Instead, as is Obama’s wont, he talked more about himself than the man whose life was supposed to be the center of attention.Even Slate noticed the problem, and blasted Obama for his narcissistic streak: Someone needs to tell Barack Obama—it must get particularly confusing this time of year—that his own birth is...

He wanted to offer encouragement after four State Department workers were murdered yesterday in Libya. A State Department official described the event to the White House pooler. "Obama spoke for about 15 minutes to a large crowd gathered in the courtyard in the middle of the State Department Building. There were at least a couple of hundred people gathered for the president's remarks, some people watching from the...

    As Election Day approaches, President Obama is sharing a few important things about himself. He has mentioned more than once in recent weeks that he cooks “a really mean chili.” He has impressive musical pitch, he told an Iowa audience. He is “a surprisingly good pool player,” he informed an interviewer — not to mention (though he does) a doodler of unusual skill.

    When I heard Neil Armstrong had passed away, it took me a while to hit me fully. I saw people send messages of remembrance and commemoration, and decided I should do my own, to show how much respect I have for a real American hero: el SOOPer@SooperMexican Neil Armstrong represented American hope, pride and excellence.

    President Obama's agenda for a second term includes bringing peace to the Middle East. "I have not been able to move the peace process forward in the Middle East the way I wanted," he said in an interview with WJLA, the ABC affiliate in Washington, D.C. "It's something we focused on very early. But the truth of the matter is, that the parties, they've got to want it as well."

    A lot of people were taken aback today by a bold, out of the blue campaign fund raising tactic. The campaign to retain The Usurper in the pResidency has asked that ordinary folks give up their gifts. That's wedding gifts, birthday gifts, anniversary gifts and for all we know, the flowers and candy you were going to give that "special someone" on Sweetest Day (because they already missed out on Valentine's day.) http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2898508/posts http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2898434/posts I'm sure that if the months of December and November were reversed on the calendar, the children's Christmas toys and stocking stuffers would be fair game...

    The Obama Record: The chief executive who swore to faithfully execute the nation's laws picks those he'll ignore and makes up others through regulation and executive order. He sees no need for a Congress or Constitution. Maybe it's because Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts stumbled a bit in leading President Obama through the oath of office that the president doesn't feel bound by it. But through the awkwardness these words were heard: "I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best...

    Sociopaths are masters at influence and deception. Very little of what they say actually checks out in terms of facts or reality, but they're extremely skillful at making the things they say sound believable, even if they're just making them up out of thin air.

    Bestselling author and former favorite of the Left Ed Klein has a out, titled after a label he claims Bill Clinton applied to Obama in private not that long ago, calling him an 'amateur'. In it, Klein takes a look at why the Obamas fell-out with Oprah, the stealth power of Valerie Jarrett,  towering arrogance of the Bolshevik Boy Wonder, as well as how much Bubba would like to choke him... Hardly a guy that anybody would consider a right-wing extremist, Klein is the former editor of the NYT Magazine and overseas editor for Newsweek who's put out books on the Kennedys and...

    Visitors to the White House website were treated to major revisions in the biographies of the Presidents. Some highlights of these revisions included: George Washington, in an effort to create a nation that could later be ruled by Barack Obama persevered through many hardships and overcame long odds to defeat the powerful British Army and establish the United States of America in 1781. Abraham Lincoln, anticipating the need for Barack Obama to rescue the nation from the despair of eight years of George W. Bush, issued the emancipation proclamation in 1862 declaring Blacks residing in areas outside of the control...
