An actual psychiatrist has diagnosed, from afar, President Obama with ‘malignant narcissism”.
The question is what real damage Obama may do to the country. This man has been entrusted with the greatest power in the world. He will have that power for the next three years at least.
But he may not be able to emotionally tolerate any real limits on his need for self-aggrandizement and power. And still he can’t be allowed to beat the country into submission.
And he has one of the best quotations I’ve heard lately:
We don’t have a national crisis today. Obama is our national crisis.
I’ve felt for some time that Obama was a dangerous narcissist. In past posts I’ve explained that you need not compare Obama to the narcissist Hitler or Stalin because Obama doesn’t (yet) have access to totalitarian power. But I did compare him to narcissistic Lyndon Johnson and Douglas McArthur – both more favorably viewed by history, but both causing deep damage to individuals and the country.
The comments on the post are interesting… debate goes on about if he is a Muslim, one even suggests he is a homosexual. Those are things he can readily hide, so lacking him facing Mecca five times a day, or dating a man, I don’t think they merit much discussion. However, Obama’s psychosis clearly manifests the longer we have time to see him interact with others and govern.
It’s going to be a long 3 years.
