Skip to comments.Obama Going Off the Deep End
Posted on 04/10/2010 10:44:29 PM PDT by TCH
A recent analysis by Roger Simon of PJTV Media maintains that Obama is showing signs of mental illness. A wide variety of commentators have observed that Obama displays severe narcissism. Obama is conceited, and he is demonstrating a serious disassociation from reality.
A recent case in point was Obama's bizarre and meandering 17-minute, 2,500-word answer to the simple question about how he could justify raising taxes for ObamaCare during a recession when citizens are already overtaxed. Obama's wildly inappropriate answer left the audience stunned and led commentator Charles Krauthammer to mockingly say, "I don't know why you are so surprised. Its only nine times the length of the Gettysburg address, and after all Lincoln was answering an easier question, the higher purpose of the union and the soldiers who fell in battle."
This lapse of delusion occurred in front of a friendly audience. Overall, Barack Obama seems to be slipping into a slightly more delusional state these days.
On Monday, following his embarrassing answer on Saturday, Obama stopped by the Washington Nationals home opener to loft an effeminate toss toward home plate constituting the ceremonial first pitch. After this display, Obama was mucking it up in the press booth talking about his love of the Chicago White Sox. The announcers asked Obama which players he supported growing up a White Sox fan. After hemming and hawing for about 30 seconds, Obama responded that he grew up in Hawaii and was actually an A's fan. Again, he avoided mentioning any players by name. Obama seems to believe that he can say whatever he wants, and not reap the consequences or be forced to defend his empty assertions. Obama behaves in a manner so disconnected from reality that he is shocked when someone has the audacity to question him. Obama acts like his word is infallible.
In March of last year Obama was on 60 Minutes with Steve Kroft. Throughout the interview as Kroft questioned about the economic downturn and people losing their life savings, Obama just kept laughing. A one point CBSs Kroft stopped him and asked, Are you punch drunk?" How will the American people react to seeing their president laugh off their predicament? Obamas inappropriate laughter clearly demonstrated he has lost touch with the pain that people are feeling.
Obama portrays himself as the larger-than-life figure towering above the political fray. At the summit when Obama was pushing his health care package through Congress, he attempted to act as if he were the chief arbiter of truth. With petty insults, he slapped down what the Republicans proposed and audaciously claimed his was a bipartisan bill. Obama distorts the truth with such frequency that one must start to question if Obama even realizes he is lying or is so disassociated from the truth that he believes what he says.
A further example of Obamas delusions of grandeur occurred when he gave himself a good solid B plus. Believing that his presidency was an above average success when America is hurting is absurd. Obama went so far as to claim that he would give himself an A once health care was passed. Obama is not living in the same reality as the rest of us.
As Charles Krauthammer wrote, Not that Obama considers himself divine. (He sees himself as merely messianic, or, at worst, apostolic.) But he does position himself as hovering above mere mortals, mere country, to gaze benignly upon the darkling plain beneath him where ignorant armies clash by night, blind to the common humanity that only he can see."
Obama sees himself as the greatest man to be president in all time. He truly believes it when he said "we are the ones we have been waiting for," and "this is the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and the planet began to heal." He believes that he can do anything he pleases and the people will love him for it. Obama plans to radically transform this country and go down in history as, in his mind, the greatest ever. Obama is clearly disconnected from reality.
Obama is, according to Newt Gingrich, potentially the most dangerous (president), because he so completely misunderstands reality. Gingrich was referring to Obamas inept and weak stance on missile defense amongst other things. Even Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said that Obama is an amateur; so much for wowing the world. Obama lives in an alternate universe where he treats our friends poorly and expects our enemies to change and become our friends. Heres hoping that the voters help to connect this president back to reality in November.
Ah, but you forget we are experiencing the biggest economic turn-around in history if the NYT’s is to be believed.
I bet he has been off the deep end for a long, long time.
Probably why Soros and the others chose him. They have the goods on him.
There are many of us who saw that before he was elected. Just not enough to our detriment.
I love Krauthammer.
The year long funeral to King-ize him would be absolutely heinous torture..
How do you b!tch slap a black President?..
Answer: You don't.. Pity too, he needs to be cold cocked and drug out of there..
What goods? He is an admitted drug user and a socialist. His associations with radical nut jobs was clear before he was elected. He is where he is because too much of the electorate wanted largess.
Why would anyone hire a guy who can’t tell you what he’s been doing the last twenty years?
Can’t tell you, and won’t let you check his references.
It’s long been apparent that Obama would be a danger to citizens of America even as a small town dogcatchcer. He is unqualified for public office anywhere. But what’s the excuse of the Congresspeople who voted with him on his obscene bill intended to accelerate the bankruptcy of America? They could and should stop him cold.
Blow jobs for coke? I'd say you are correct!
I think this guy has many more problems that are being held under wraps by his handlers. When was the last time you heard a journalist ask a sitting president if he was punch drunk? I saw the interview and Steve Kroft’s comment was a reflex. Kroft couldn’t believe what he was witnessing. Obama has serious mental problems and they will become more obvious as time goes on.
Ted Kennedy would do this anytime he was confronted with valid questions about ideas he opposed. It's simply the left's style. They are not showing signs of developing mental illness. They already had that.
Question for Dr. Krauthammer (or any psychiatrist)...
Can I assume that you have already ruled out drug use?
Recalling JFK's unfortunate use of amphetamines (Dr. Feelgood, etc), I would love to be reassured that this has been ruled out for Mister Obama.
They as guilty as he is because they want the same thing. Please tell you are not that blind.
Nothing short of what any ole' FReeper knew long, long, L-O-O-N-N-G before the election.
I have Fox as my home page and I just saw a photo of Obama exiting the White House alone. He didn’t look happy.
The caption was “Breaking years of protocol president leaves the White House about two hours before reporters were supposed to be in position to go with him.”
I’m looking at the picture now. He looks just a little bit shadey. I would check the silverware if I saw a guy looking the way he does leaving the premesis.
This is the same guy who can’t go through a single day without being in front of a camera He very well might be cracking up. Wouldn’t it be something if they had to put him in a rubber room before November?
He admits to using drugs in college. He smokes and drinks too much if you can believe his last medical report. But that is not the issue in the big picture. He is a socialist at best and a communist at worst. He is a disaster of epic proportions. Just keep you eyes open.
