  • Woman in Labor Unable to Cross Street to Hospital Because of Obama Motorcade

    NBC Los Angeles ^ | 7/24/14 | Samia Khan and Robert Kovacik
    A woman who witnesses said appeared to be in labor was prevented from crossing an LA street Wednesday afternoon because the road was closed for President Barack Obama’s motorcade. The woman was seen sitting at a bus stop bench on the south side of 3rd Street just east of Robertson Boulevard and across from Cedars Sinai Medical Center. NBC4’s Robert Kovacik shot video on his cell phone of a woman sitting at a bus stop bench and posted it to his Instagram account with the caption, "Woman in labor on bench as motorcade passes; not allowed to cross street to...

    Others who worked with Obama reached similar conclusions. “He doesn’t listen to anyone,” a former top economic aide told a friend. Outsiders invited to meet with him concluded it was all for show, that he was not interested in what they had to say. That he rarely talks to congressional leaders, including fellow Democrats, has become such a staple of Washington that it has ceased to be news. He apparently believes it is beneath him to consult or get into the details of legislation. Then again, he doesn’t talk to members of his Cabinet much either, so he’s consistent in...

    Big Government ^ | 10/24/12 | Dr. Timothy Daughtry
    In the final days of the 2012 campaign, it looks like the Obama campaign has decided to peel away the veneer of “likeability” that his strategists had once considered an advantage over Mitt Romney.  Under pressure from an apparent Romney surge, someone – perhaps even Obama himself – has decided to let Obama be Obama.  But, considering the strong narcissistic streak that many observers have noted in Obama’s character, that decision could prove to be one of the more colossal tactical blunders in recent political history.  A candidate’s personality – often described generally as likeability – can greatly affect the...

    Obama’s first two presidential debates with Romney gave us another look deep into his mind – into a continued confession which he simply cannot stop himself from making. From my experience as a forensic profiler, I know when a guilty person starts to break. Law enforcement describes how guilty suspects show signs of cracking during an interrogation – and they push on those weaknesses. We can view Obama’s poor performance during the first presidential debate with Romney on Oct. 3 in a similar way. The debate – a symbolic interrogation – was the first time Obama had faced tough questions...

    "A person who gives too much importance to himself, to the extent that he does not think about the feelings and sentiments of other people is said to be a narcissist. People who are narcissists consider themselves to be perfectionists who can never do anything wrong. They are governed by their false ego which requires ample amounts of admiration and praise to survive. It is said that narcissists live in a world of their own where they can think only about their problems and issues regarding power, prestige and personal adequacy. This makes them selfish individuals who do not have...

    The Barack Obama who stood on the debate stage in Denver Wednesday night was virtually unrecognizable to the person who swept to victory in 2008 or even the man who had built a narrow-but-clear edge in the 2012 race. In the wake of the debate, Democrats conceded that former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney had dominated the proceedings and quickly moved on to a deeper — and harder to answer — question: What the hell was wrong with the president? Theories abound — up to an including that Obama, who had done debate prep in Las Vegas, struggled to adjust to...

    National Review Online ^ | September 18, 2012 | Charles R. Kesler
    More than any Democratic president since Franklin Roosevelt, Barack Obama in his writings and speeches has worked out an impressive interpretation of American history that culminates in modern liberalism. It also culminates, not incidentally, in him. As a writer, Obama’s strength is telling tales, and his story of America mixes together social, intellectual, and political history. It begins and keeps contending with the Founding– with the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. He tries to tell a new story about the country that acknowledges, and then contextualizes, traditional views in ways that are meant to be reassuring but that point...

    It was a moment to hail a great hero - a chance to remember a man who placed America at the forefront of space exploration and in the history books forever. And yet President Obama saw the passing of Neil Armstrong, the first man to step on the moon, as a chance for a picture opportunity - of himself. After the death of the 82-year-old on Saturday, Obama's team chose to mark the loss by posting an image of the president gazing up at the moon on his Tumblr account. ...And, if the self-promotion at a time of tragedy was...

    After much soul searching, Barack Obama has figured out where his presidency has gone wrong -- and he shared it with CBS's Charlie Rose and viewers across the fruited plain Sunday morning. "The mistake of my first term -- couple of years," the president allowed, "was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right." At times, Obama confessed, he'd forgotten that "the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times." He needed to do "more explaining,...

    Barack Obama’s increasingly desperate struggle to win re-election is causing some of his worst traits to be put on display, including petulance and self-pity. The latest example occurred during a fundraiser in Baltimore, when the president said, “Because folks are still hurting right now, the other side feels that it’s enough for them to just sit back and say, ‘Things aren’t as good as they should be, and it’s Obama’s fault.’” This is rich. No president in human history has quite equaled Obama when it comes to blaming others for his problems....

    Definition By Mayo Clinic staff Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. Those with narcissistic personality disorder believe that they're superior to others and have little regard for other people's feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism. Narcissistic personality disorder is one of several types of personality disorders. Personality disorders are conditions in which people have traits that cause them to feel and behave in socially distressing ways, limiting their ability to function in...

In his first detailed interview since the al-Qaeda leader was shot dead by Navy Seals, US president Barack Obama revealed that he took a “gamble” and was advised not to go through with the risky operation. Just days before the May 1 attack, the CIA had advised there was a 60-70 per cent certainty that bin Laden was holed up with his family...

The president said he had no hesitation over ordering bin Laden's death, though he admitted to nervousness about sending U.S. special forces troops into Pakistan or the dangerous -- but ultimately successful -- mission. "As nervous as I was about this whole process, the one thing I didn't lose sleep over was the possibility of taking bin Laden out. Justice was done," Obama said Sunday on "60 Minutes" on CBS. "And...

    It makes me SICK to think this poser is getting all the glory for killing UBL, and struted around like a peacock today down at Ground Zero, when he attended the "church" of Rev. Wright who famously said, on the first Sunday after 9/11, "America's chickens have come home to roost. Not God Bless America, but G-D America." While the story is Obama was not there that sunday, I will NEVER believe that he did not know that is how Rev. Wright felt. Yet after that, he continued to attend that "church" and had Wright following him around on the...

    Debra Burlingame, the sister of Charles "Chic" Burlingame (pilot of the plane that crashed into the Pentagon) met with President Obama today, along with other families who were victims of 9/11. Burlingame said she confronted Obama about Attorney General Eric Holder prosecuting the men who interrogated KSM, which may have produced intelligence leading us to bin Laden. Burlingame describes the encounter with Obama: "As a former attorney I know you can't tell the Attorney General what to do, he said, 'No, I can't.' But I said 'we -- that shouldn't stop you from giving your opinion. We wouldn't be here...

    He placed a wreath at Ground Zero, met with 9/11 firefighters and vowed that, “when we say ‘we will never forgot,’ we mean what we say.” But it seems like the president did overlook one detail — putting names on the invitations to 9/11 families. The administration apparently sent out form-letter invites to 50 hand-picked relatives of 9/11 victims, which began “Dear 9/11 family member.” At least one family has turned down the request, saying that they felt the letter was impersonal. “If this form letter was the invitation, it was kinda lame,” said John Vigiano, who lost two heroic...

    Burlingame describes the encounter with Obama: "As a former attorney I know you can't tell the Attorney General what to do, he said, 'No, I can't.' But I said 'we -- that shouldn't stop you from giving your opinion. We wouldn't be here today if they hadn't done their jobs. Can't you at least give them your opinion.' And he said 'no I won't,' and he turned around and walked away."
  • There's a reason Obama called this war a Kinetic Military Action (vanity)

    This needs to be broadcasted far and wide. Obama named it a Kinetic Military Action because it's a hidden way of saying to the American public KMA. Just like he uses his middle finger to rub his face when he wants to flip someone off. He's an immature punk.
  • Obama Speech Analysis: a Weird Journey Through the Mind of a Narcissist

    03/28/2011 8:01:19 PM PDT · by traumer · 31 replies
    The President's address was an exercise in psychodrama, a weird journey through the mind of a narcissist who can't believe all the nasty things people are saying about him. Obama's id is wrestling with the comparisons between his Libyan intervention and George Bush's action in Iraq. He made a point of criticizing Iraq, which had a vastly larger international coalition behind it than Obama does now, united in the struggle to depose an even more gruesome and sadistic monster than Qaddafi. He warned us that we might be stuck in post-Qaddafi Libya for a while because "40 years of terror...
