Obama off the Deep End: “Obama has lost touch with reality”–Posted on ExposeObama.com-By Floyd and Mary Beth Brown, Expose Obama-On April 9, 2010:
These are pertinent excerpts from this article:
“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. It’s 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 CBS’s Kroft stopped him and asked, “Are you punch drunk?” How will the American people react to seeing their president laugh off their predicament? Obama’s 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 healthcare 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 Obama’s 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 healthcare 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 Obama’s 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. Here’s hoping that the voters help to connect this president back to reality in November.”
Has Obama Lost His Mind?–Posted on The Post & Email-By Sharon Rondeau-On September 10, 2012:
These are pertinent excerpts from this article and/or blog post:
Has Obama lost his mind?
Where was the Secret Service? What were they thinking? And what was Bidenattempting to do today?
Obama joked about the tax cuts which he purports Mitt Romney would make if elected, oddly associating tax cuts with one’s “love life.” What does one have to do with the other?
Before the 2008 election, Obama thought there were 57 states in the country. Hebelieves that Islam has always been a part of American culture when it has not. Where was Obama educated to believe that?
He says he wants to help the middle class, but having been a member of a socialistpolitical party and desirous of “spreading the wealth around,” there is no basis for his newfound claim. Socialists and communists do not believe in a growing middle class. “Shared responsibility” equates to government ownership and control of the means of production of goods. If Obama is a committed communist, he would have no plans to “fix the economy” other than to have the government assume control over moresegments of it.
Obama has been called “neurotic,” “narcissistic,” and “unfit for office.” He seems to have a need to feel “loved.” “Narcissism” is defined as an “inordinate fascination with oneself; excessive self-love; vanity. Synonyms: self-centeredness, smugness, egocentrism.”
“Narcissistic personality disorder” is defined as “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.” Is that true of Obama?
Does Obama care more about himself than the 320,000,000 Americans he is supposed to be protecting? Is he protecting or betraying? Has he taken the side of the Muslimsrather than the free world? Have the “political winds shifted in an ugly direction?”
While the Secret Service said more than three years ago that it could not arrest Obama, its members apparently can arrest those breaking the law by issuing threats. [Editor’s Note: The Post & Email condemns any and all threats of violence in any form.]
IS OBAMA BEGINNING TO CRACK? ‘Forensic profiler Andrew Hodges: ‘I know when a guilty person starts to break’!-Posted on WND.com-By Andrew G. Hodges-On October 22, 2012:
These are pertinent excerpts from this article and/or blog post:
“Editor’s Note: Dr. Andrew G. Hodges is a psychiatrist and forensic profiler who decoded O.J. Simpson’s “suicide note,” deciphered the JonBenet Ramsey ransom note and worked on the Natalee Holloway murder case. He’s author of “The Obama Confession: Secret Fear, Secret Fury,” and uses a unique psycholinguistic technique he calls “ThoughtPrint Decoding” to “read between the lines” of people’s statements – called “the cutting-edge of forensic science” by expert investigators. His work previously was profiled here.
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 since 2008.
And he showed signs of cracking.
Consider the following. As a forensic profiler I listened in a neutral fashion to key Obama communications around the time of his 2008 election. I explain my method of reading between the lines – where people always confess – in my recent book, “The Obama Confession: Secret Fear, Secret Fury.” I demonstrated how, driven by secret guilt, Obama confessed in a powerful way to violating the Constitution, running as an illegal foreign-born president which was just the tip of the iceberg of his misguided rage directed at America. (He also provided the massive personal wounds and stark hidden terror which prompts his anger.)
Additionally, I showed how in recent communications Obama’s unconscious guilt is off the charts. Running for reelection has especially triggered his misdeeds in a fresh way. Again he is trying to pull the wool over America’s eyes with plans for more disguised fury directed at our nation.
This I believe is how we can ultimately understand his poor presidential debate – deep-seated, powerful guilt. Obama was a “no show,” he kept looking down. He could not look America in the eye. Frequently he never answered Romney, allowing him to dominate.
All in all we have a behavioral confession: “I do not belong in this office.” A non-verbal confession of his illegal presidency.
All along Obama has told us a major key to understanding him is reading his behavior (as commentator and former psychiatrist Charles Krauthammer has also observed). Remember, Obama stressed in his 2008 Fathers’ Day speech as a candidate how absent fathers produced sons who attacked community foundations. He talked about how sons of absent fathers repeated the destructive behavior of the father. Clearly he made plain his father was absent in his scathing criticism of absent fathers.
The day following the debate, Obama insisted in a speech that Romney “ought to tell the people the truth” and that he wasn’t during the debate. Unconsciously, Obama points to his own enormous guilt and tremendous deception of the people. This also harkens back to his hidden confession in his inaugural address with numerous images suggesting an ineligible president: taking shortcuts, back-room deals that violate trust, and clinging to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent. Obama repeatedly shows us how his brilliant unconscious – the honest super intelligence we all possess – eventually confesses in words that match his behavior.
Regarding the first debate, several key commentators including WND’s Joseph Farah theorized that some powerful integrity issue among Obama donors was greatly distracting him. But Farah suggests he intuitively picked up on the deepest integrity reason as his column showed. He observed Obama falling apart beyond belief, and noted that Obama “grew increasingly uneasy, nervous … an inability to think clearly on his feet.” He underscored an extreme deficit in Obama’s “executive capabilities” (all these are signs of cracking) and raises the key question, “Why are we seeing this now?”
Farah emphasizes that Obama was never challenged as a candidate and, most importantly, was “never screened for constitutional eligibility.” Farah recognizes that such a major offense would mean enormous guilt deep down.
Consider that Obama’s unconscious super intelligence was posing the toughest question of all by his behavior and poor performance: “Have those of you who missed my secret confession and lack of media vetting ever seriously asked if I am a legal president, if I belong in office?” In short, a hidden confession. Obama demonstrates the power of the unconscious super intelligence to have its way and how the conscious mind is no match for someone who must confess.
As many anticipated, Obama’s second debate performance on Oct. 16 was overtly much different than his first. He appeared more assertive and having regained his wits.
But the question was whether or not he would overcompensate as a sign of his deep guilt. Would we see signs of his ever-present secret anger (which even came through in flashes at the first debate)? Dick Morris believed we did, noting after the second debate, “Obama came over as boorish and Biden-esque. He did not learn from his vice president’s mistakes. When a president gets into a barroom brawl, he loses his dignity and his aura, key assets for an incumbent. Romney was polite but firm. Obama seemed quarrelsome, frustrated, nasty, and cranky.”
Obama of course made his erroneous case filled with exaggerations that he had been good for the economy – new jobs, more American oil production, and friendly to the coal industry. Appropriately, Romney pointed out the truth, “… what we don’t need is to have the president keeping us from taking advantage of oil, coal and gas. This has not been Mr. Oil, or Mr. Gas, or Mr. Coal. Talk to the people that are working in those industries.”
See this as another sign of Obama’s guilt – to blatantly attack America’s energy policies and economy and then deny it.
Disguised in accusations directed at Romney and the Republicans, unconsciously he presented America with several striking comments secretly describing himself.
He accused Romney, the businessman, of shipping jobs overseas, bankrupting companies and laying off workers which would fit precisely with Obama shipping oil-drilling jobs to foreign countries, causing layoffs and heading America toward bankruptcy with his out-of-control spending.
One shining example occurred when he belittled Romney’s economic plan.
“Governor Romney doesn’t have a five-point plan. He has a one-point plan. And that plan is to make sure that folks at the top play by a different set of rules. That’s been his philosophy in the private sector … that’s been his philosophy as a presidential candidate.”
Once more Obama confesses unconsciously that all along, even as a private citizen (and college student), he planned on playing by a different set of rules, which he has carried out as president. We could have predicted that he would get in yet another striking unconscious confession that he had violated the rule of law and by extension the Constitution as an illegal foreign-born president. In both his inauguration speech and his recent U.N. speech he repeatedly insisted how we must live by the Constitution as his deeper moral compass pointed to his guilt.
Go back to his Fathers’ Day speech as a candidate in 2008 when he warned America who he was: “When I was a young man, I thought life was all about me – how do I make my way in the world, and how do I become successful and how do I get the things that I want.” Obama was telling us then and now that he had a one-point plan. It was and is all about him to do whatever he wanted with the United States Constitution. But deep down he insists he must be stopped.
We can be certain that Obama’s guilt and anger will show up in similar ways in the third debate.”
