Prez Fights For Survival

There has always been a bit of uneasiness regarding President Obama and his self-obsession. Some have suggested that it is extreme narcissism, severe enough to be a pathological problem.

According to CBS News, there were only 21 days in his first year where Obama did not make at least one public appearance. The statistics from CBS were amazing: 411 speeches comments and remarks of which 52 were on healthcare, 158 interviews, visits to 58 US cities and 21 foreign nations, 160 flights on Air Force One, 193 flights on Marine One, etc. etc. In short, it was Obama time, all the time.

The following post from American Thinker highlights the concern regarding President Obama’s self-absorption:

Not too full of himself, is he?

I really feel the need to apologize to our president. In the past I have called him a pathological narcissist. I was mistaken in that and should probably bake a cake and send it to the White House as my act of contrition.I never dreamed he was worse than that:

Berry recounted meetings with White House officials, reminiscent of some during the Clinton days, where he and others urged them not to force Blue Dogs “off into that swamp” of supporting bills that would be unpopular with voters back home.“I’ve been doing that with this White House, and they just don’t seem to give it any credibility at all,” Berry said. “They just kept telling us how good it was going to be. The president himself, when that was brought up in one group, said, ‘Well, the big difference here and in ’94 was you’ve got me.’ We’re going to see how much difference that makes now.”

That quote comes to us via Glenn Thrush’s blog in Politico where he details what retiring rep Marion Berry told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

Do the Democrats realize yet that this self puffery is the product of a delusional mind and that following him means almost certain destruction for their careers and perhaps their party?

If I were a Democrat, I would be afraid. Very afraid.

Whether the Dems believe that “this self puffery is the product of a delusional mind” is irrelevant. They have seen his toxicity in polls and recent elections. What appeared to be an attractive young upstart, capable of passing legislation dreamed about by older Dems for decades, is now seen as a threat to their very existence. The old bulls are not ready to cede their place in Washington so that some young, delusional dreamer can pursue his fantasies and destroy their gravy train.

Fantasy has been confronted by reality. In such contests, reality always triumphs, at least eventually. It will be interesting to see how this President reacts. He is not used to being questioned. Nor is he used to being treated with anything other than cult-like admiration. If indeed his condition is pathological, we could be in store for a very painful (and dangerous) national soap opera.

When Obama was useful, he was the hit of the party. Exposed, he is nothing more than a liability that threatens the rest of the party. Survival trumps loyalty, ideology and psychology. Regardless of Obama’s psychological condition, he is about to be destroyed by his own tribe.

Messiahs are not used to such treatment. How this plays out will be interesting and potentially very dangerous.

  1. Hullo, how are you? I really like ur blog! I am wondering if you can assist me (I am sure other readers might also be interested). I would also like to get involved in creating a blog as well and I currently write a blog with Word Press, but it is very confusing for me to use and I would very much like to try to get some training materials or courses (preferably free) that can assist me in using wordpress correctly. As a wordpress web master yourself, do u maybe know were i could find online tutorials to do this? Thanks!

  2. How it is played out is dangerous, but less dangerous than not playing it out. Some of our most important questions have now been answered: the wake-up call would take one year, and he would be destroyed by his friends.
