Karl Rove Confirms Obama is a Grandiose Narcissist


Jim Meyers and Kathleen Walter report for NewsMax.com, Nov. 29, 2011, that former George W. Bush presidential adviser Karl Rove says Barack Obama is so arrogant, he doesn’t consider himself a “mere mortal.”
In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV, Rove was asked if he has heard reports that Obama is a “loner.”
“I not only heard it, I had to deal with it,” he responds.
“During my time in the White House my job was to try to develop an informal relationship with him when he came to the Senate in 2005, and I saw him up close for almost three years.
“My view of him is that he’s incredibly smart. He can, if he wants to, be enormously charming. But he’s also the most self-aware person I’ve ever met in politics, which makes for a deadly combination. He is arrogant and aloof and diffident and doesn’t believe he needs to get his hands dirty with the normal work of mortals. He’s not a mere mortal in his mind.
“He’s developed no long-term and deep connection with the [Democratic] leadership. They like him, they respect him for having returned the White House to Democratic hands. But there’s none of the close friendship and close working relationship that you’d expect the president to develop with individual members of Congress.”
This is not news to those of us who have tried in vain to warn our countrymen sheeple about this, beginning in 2008.
That a grandiose narcissist is in the White House has frightening implications.
A narcissist is someone with a grandiose false self-image. This means Obama’s self-perception is skewed, which in turn means he has problems with reality assessment. The erroneous assessment isn’t restricted to his self-perception but speaks to an overall cognitive impairment, which means that we have no assurance of his ability to correctly perceive reality — of America and the world.

Wayne Madsen: Obama Obsessed With Vanity Searches


In an exclusive-to-subscribers post on September 23, 2011, D.C.-based investigative journalist Wayne Madsen reports that Obama is very depressed about his fall in popularity, and spends whatever time he has from official duties, in vanity searches on the Internet.
Here are excerpts from Madsen:

“WMR has learned from government sources with close contacts inside the White House that media reports that The New York Times is developing a story on President Obama suffering from clinical depression are correct and that Obama is fixated on how the media, including certain web sites, view his presidency.

WMR has previously reported on Obama’s narcissistic personality and how it has adversely affected his leadership capabilities as president. Obama’s day usually begins by his conducting “vanity searches” on Google to see how he is being treated by both the main stream media and political blogs. When he encounters negative articles, Obama flies off the handle in a rage punctuated by the use of foul language, according to sources close to the White House. Obama is reportedly totally obsessed with how the media is covering him.

[…] WMR has been told by informed sources that when he first read our accounts of his background with the CIA, including his employment with Business International Corporation, and the CIA histories of his mother and grandparents, Obama flew into a rage — the possible source for three independent reports that indicated that the White House wanted this editor “dead.”

Privately, some White House officials have expressed fear to Democratic Party officials and elected Democratic office holders around the nation that Obama is on the verge of a mental breakdown. The White House officials believe that only by putting Obama in front of adoring crowds in a carefully-orchestrated campaign mode can they buy time for the administration. However, the White House sources have expressed grave doubts about Obama’s ability to maintain his composure when faced with growing criticism. Their worst fear is that Obama will suffer from a public breakdown, sealing the end of his re-election chances and dooming the down-ticket electoral prospects for the Democratic Party in 2012 and beyond.

[…] Obama is known to search the Internet for stories about himself before he receives the President’s Daily Brief from top intelligence officials. Woe be it to any intelligence briefer who reports on information obtained from open sources. Obama, who, in many cases has already read such accounts, will let loose with a barrage of abusive epithets, yelling, at times, “I already know that you stupid motherfucker!”

Ron Suskind’s new book, “Confidence Men,” which mainly concerns the dysfunctional nature of the Obama White House, has resulted in a full-court press being directed by the White House and its spin doctors against the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist.”

Madsen’s account is consistent with the profile of a psychological pathology recognized by the American Psychological Association as the Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). As explained in this article on NPD:

  • At the core of the NPD syndrome is the construction of a false self as a way to cope with the external world so as to compensate for the individual’s feelings of insecurity and uncertain self-identity. Like its namesake, the mythic Narcissus who is in love with his reflection in water, the self that Obama loves is not his real self, but a false self that is grandiose, perfect, and superior.

  • The narcissist is hollow inside and derives his sense-of-self from seeing his reflection in the eyes of others. The psychological literature calls this “mirroring”: the narcissist mainly uses other people as a mirror to reflect his grandiose false self-conception. Like a vampire who must feed on others’ blood in order to live, the narcissist feeds on other people’s admiration, approval, love, and compliments. That is why Obama’s handlers have decided to dispatch him on the campaign trail, where he’ll be greeted by adoring crowds.

On Oct. 16, 2010, Obama let slip his charming public mask and revealed the raging demon within.

  • The maintenance and protection of the false self also requires Obama the narcissist to be constantly vigilant against being “attacked” by others. Toward any perceived criticism, he publicly feigns cool indifference, but away from the public eye, he overreacts with rage and humiliation to even minor or trivial reproach. He simply will not listen to or countenance criticism.

More disturbing is the fact that since NPD means that the narcissist has a grandiose but FALSE self-conception, this is more than a mental disorder. Pathological narcissism is also a cognitive disorder, i.e., an impaired assessment of reality.
This means that Americans have as President a man who is cognitively impaired. If he is grossly mistaken in his assessment of himself, he is also impaired in his assessment of the reality beyond himself — the U.S. economy, politics, and the world.
Think about it….

Obama in Joker Mode as World Falls Apart


Pathological narcissism is a disorder described by the American Psychological Association’s Diagnostic Statistical Manual IV describes as “A pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by 5 or more of the following:

  1. Has a grandiose sense of self-importance.
  2. Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.
  3. Believes that he or she is “special” & unique & can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people or institutions.
    Requires excessive admiration.
  4. Has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with her expectations.
  5. Is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his/her own ends.
  6. Lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings & needs of others.
  7. Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him/her.
  8. Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.”

Even during the 2008 presidential campaign, there were those who tried in vain to warn Americans that the man of many names with whom they’re so besotted, Barack Hussein Steven Dunham Soetoro Obama, is a pathological narcissist.
Examples of Obama’s narcissistic arrogance and sheer grandiosity abound. After he was elected President and his Demonrat Party won control of Congress, Obama dismissed the two-party system, the concept of the loyal opposition, and America’s founding principle of checks and balances when he declared to Republicans upset with the $787 billion stimulus porkulus package: “Deal with it. I won, you lost.”
Then there is what Obama told Rep. Marion Berry about the looming midterm elections in 2010. Increasingly worried about how Democrats would fare on November 2, Berry and others pleaded with the White House not to force Blue Dogs (southern Dems) “off into that swamp” of supporting bills that would be unpopular with voters back home. Berry recounted what happened to Jane Fullerton of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette:

“I’ve been doing that with this White House, and they just don’t seem to give it any credibility at all. 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 all know what happened on November 2 — how empty Obama’s grandiose boast turned out to be.
One of the attributes of pathological narcissism is a lack of empathy.
Empathy is the ability to put ourselves in someone’s shoes and feel the emotions they’re feeling — an ability inherent in human beings. Babies as young as days old already display a primitive type of empathy (called “global empathy”) when they cry in response to hearing another baby cry. Empathy is what makes us human.
But not all humans display empathy. Psychologists have found that sociopaths/psychopaths or those with Anti-Social Personality Disorder (ASPD) lack empathy. I worry about anyone who does not have empathy, especially if this individual is president, commander-in-chief, and the most powerful man in the world.
As the disaster in Japan goes from bad to worse every day — with entire villages demolished by the 9.1 earthquake and the 32-ft tsunami that followed; thousands reported dead, more thousands missing; and half a million made homeless — there is human suffering on a scale unprecedented since World War II.
What is Obama’s reaction? A strangely affect-less statement, read from a prepared script (that someone else wrote for him), displaying not a whiff of emotion, even less of anguished empathy:
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=R-Hf39cszww]
But Obama had no problem showing plenty of affect as he yucks it up at the Gridiron dinner. Well, at least he’s being consistent. As oil spewed from the floor of the Gulf of Mexico last year, Obama also yucked it up at the White House Correspondents’ dinner. 
And as the situation with the damaged reactors in Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant deteriorates by the day — the latest being this morning’s report that those 50 heroic workers who had gone into the plant have retreated because of the radiation rising to a level too dangerous even for them — Americans are more and more worried that a core meltdown will release a radiation cloud that will be carried by the jet stream to the U.S. west coast.
What is Obama doing about all this, as the world falls apart? Party like it’s 1999!
As Keith Koffler of White House Dossier observes in President Obama’s Trivial Pursuits,” March 15, 2011:

[A]s Japan’s nuclear crisis enters a potentially catastrophic phase, we are told that Obama is videotaping his NCAA tournament picks and that we’ll be able to tune into ESPN Wednesday to find out who he likes.
Saturday, he made his 61st outing to the golf course as president, and got back to the White House with just enough time for a quick shower before heading out to party with Washington’s elite journalists at the annual Gridiron Dinner.
With various urgencies swirling about him, Saturday’s weekly videotaped presidential address focusing on “Women’s History Month” seemed bizarrely out of touch.
Obama Friday took time out to honor the 2009-10 Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks. Thursday was a White House conference on bullying – not a bad idea perhaps, but not quite Leader of the Free World stuff either. Obama appeared a little sleepy as he weighed in against the bullies, perhaps because he’d spent the night before partying with lawmakers as they took in a Chicago Bulls vs. Charlotte Bobcats game.
Meanwhile, the president has been studying for weeks whether to establish a No Fly Zone over Libya, delaying action while the point becomes increasingly moot as Qaddafi begins to defeat and slaughter his opponents. And lawmakers from both Parties are wondering why he seems to be AWOL in the deficit reduction debate…..
But the fun stuff won’t end anytime soon. On Thursday, the Taoiseach of Ireland will be in town to help the president celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. And then Friday it’s off to Brazil for the start of a three-country Latin American tour.

I trust the 52.9% of American voters who had voted for this “man” with ice in his heart are happy with what they accomplished.
God help us….

Demonic Obama

I first noticed these extraordinary pics of Obama on Drudge earlier today. The pics are wire service photos of Obama campaigning over the weekend. By this afternoon, Drudge had added a reference to Rush Limbaugh also noticing the pics.
Take a look.
Trust what your instincts tell you.




I’ll be blunt.
These pics are FRIGHTENING.
Look at those eyes. Eyes of pure evil. Eyes of madness.
I and others noticed his evil eyes back in the 2008 campaign [see HERE], but now they’re much much worse.
Rush said “An American president has never had facial expressions like this. At least we’ve never seen photos of an American president with facial expressions like this.”
I agree with Rush: They are demonic, unholy.
Obama’s mask — the sociopathic narcissist’s charming social mask — is slipping and what’s emerging ain’t pretty.
Looks like those reports of Obama being gripped by paranoia, depression, and schizophrenia are right, as are the reports of top Democrats considering invoking Section 4 of the 25th Amendment to remove Obama….
Pray for America!

Obama, Narcissist-in-Chief

A small number of people had known, since 2008, that Obama is a pathological narcissist. For us, the article below, “The Condescender-in-Chief,” is simply a confirmation of what we already know. 

Here are the criterial attributes of the Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) from the American Psychological Assocation’s Diagnostic Statistical Manual IV. By my count, Obama exhibits all of the following traits:
[NPD is] “A pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by 5 or more of the following:

  1. Has a grandiose sense of self-importance.
  2. Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.
  3. Believes that he or she is “special” & unique & can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people or institutions.
  4. Requires excessive admiration.
  5. Has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his expectations.
  6. Is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his/her own ends.
  7. Lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings & needs of others.
  8. Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him/her.
  9. Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.”

To the millions of Americans who were so dense and undiscerning as to have voted for this fraud and now are finally seeing him as he truly is, here’s how he had played you as suckers: 

“The narcissist is hollow inside and derives his sense-of-self from seeing his reflection in the eyes of others. The psychological literature calls this “mirroring”: the narcissist mainly uses other people as a mirror to reflect his grandiose but false self-conception. Like a vampire who must feed on others’ blood in order to live, the narcissist feeds on other people’s admiration, approval, love, and adulation. Once the source is sucked dry, however, the narcissist no longer has use for them and will abruptly and mercilessly cast them aside.”

Posted by Bill S – October 17, 2010

Two years into the Obama presidency, and this kind of thing really shouldn’t be a surprise.

Obama told the several dozen donors that he was offering them his “view from the Oval Office.” He faulted the economic downturn for Americans’ inability to “think clearly” and said the burden is on Democrats “to break through the fear and the frustration people are feeling.”

The President believes that we are not “thinking clearly,” and that our attitudes and behavior stem from “fear and frustration”.  It is one thing for Obama to think that, but it is yet another for the President of the United States to say it out loud – about his own nation’s citizens.
But this is no surprise, is it?  This is the same man who accused those who disagreed with him of being hyper-religious, violent xenophobes:

And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

Yes, we remember that one well, don’t we?
A quick Google search reveals the extent of Obama’s condescension problem.  Article after article document his snooty, patronizing attitudes about those around him.
Recently, Obama even teed off on his own party.

Whatever complaints they might have about climate change or other issues, Obama said, it is “just irresponsible” that some Democrats and progressives were lacking enthusiasm for the election.
“If people now want to take their ball and go home that tells me folks weren’t serious in the first place,” he said. “If you’re serious, now’s exactly the time that people have to step up.”

Darcy Burner, of the leftist organization ProgressCongress.org, responded:

“Here we have a president who over and over again said that a public option was going to be a key part of the health care plan — who then, it turns out, cut a deal to get rid of the public option. And he’s upset at the base that worked so hard to try to get a meaningful health care bill,” she said.
“The least he could do is acknowledge that progressives have legitimate concerns. Instead he’s condescending. It’s not helpful.”

It IS rather amusing to see the tables turned on them.  Yet, Obama’s condescension towards his own ilk is not a new thing either.  The Huffington Post noted this attitude last year.  The conclusion of John Knefel’s article states:

And what these recent polls are showing is that if Obama continues to treat those who mobilized en masse to work for his election with scorn, derision, and disrespect, he can, and should, expect nothing but the same in return.

A prescient statement, considering how most pre-election polling indicates an apparent abandonment of support for Obama’s agenda by pretty much all but the most hard-core leftists.  Victor Davis Hanson spots this as well, and notes:

But polls suggest that these clueless and unappreciative Americans apparently believe that an elite education does not ensure their officials can balance a budget, pay their own taxes or speak candidly.
What an outrageous “How dare they!” thought.

Obama’s attitude undoubtedly originates from the bowels of liberal/leftist thought and his sheltered past as university academic wonk and community organizer.  Elitist liberals believe they know better than we do about how we should think and act.  From health-care legislation that removes choice, to limits on what foods we can eat and beverages we can drink, to motorcycle helmet laws and beyond, the leftist philosophy is to remove our ability to think for ourselves and turn it over to the State.  Their assumption is that we not capable of making our own decisions, and the desire to do so is met with disdain and condescension.  In his piece, Hanson also observes:

When America votes for a liberal candidate, it is redeemed by the left as intelligent – and derided as dense when it does not. We were told not to worry that Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner did not pay all his income taxes since we were lucky to have someone so well-educated.

Obama’s tendency to be insultingly dismissive of those who disagree with him ultimately indicates a fundamental lack of perception of what’s going on in the United States.  He is like the child who covers his ears, closes his eyes, and chants “I CAN’T HEAR YOU… I CAN’T HEAR YOU!!”  It is a pathological case of denial.  As one of my distinguished colleagues notes, “he has never really considered the possibility that Americans aren’t actually liberals.”
I believe he may finally see this on November 2nd.
