    The buzz grows louder that Barack Obama isn't just over his head, as any informed voter knew he would be — he's completely losing it. Rumors of a psychiatric meltdown are making their way to the edges of the mainstream.

    For troubling details on Obama's mental state, check out the first-hand reports from Obama's own Deep Throat at NewsFlavor. According to a beltway insider and former advisor to the Obama election campaign and transition team:

    “I'll tell you this — if you want to see President Obama get excited about a conversation, turn it to sports. That gets him interested. You start talking about Congress, or some policy, and he just kinda turns off. It's really very strange. I mean, we were all led to believe that this guy was some kind of intellectual giant, right? Ivy League and all that. Well, that is not what I saw. Barack Obama doesn't have a whole lot of intellectual curiosity. When he is off script, he is what I call a real "slow talker". Lots of ummms, and lots of time in between answers where you can almost see the little wheel in his head turning very slowly.”

    … I don't have a problem saying that the president is losing it. I don't mean he is like losing his mind. I mean to say that he is losing whatever spark he had during the campaign. When you take away the crowds, Obama gets noticeably smaller. He shrinks up inside of himself. He just doesn't seem to have the confidence to do the job of President, and it's getting worse and worse. Case in point — just a few days before I left, I saw first hand the President of the United States yelling at a member of his staff. He was yelling like a spoiled child. And then he pouted for several moments after. I wish I was kidding, or exaggerating, but I am not. The President of the United States threw a temper tantrum. The jobs reports are always setting him off, and he is getting increasingly conspiratorial over the unemployment numbers. I never heard it myself, but was told that Obama thinks the banking system is out to get him now."

    The future of the nation is in the hands of neurotic socialist with an alarming background and no serious job qualifications. Terrified yet?[/SIZE]

    Dems are not in lockstep like the repubs are.
    A much more diverse lot.

    I'm not sure about his mental state, but you can definitely see a difference in his eyes, when he makes speeches...He looks defeated and very unhappy, no matter what he is making a speech on...I hate to see the look on his face if he ever has to debate Newt off of prompter.

    I don't know if I think Obama is losing it per se. I think he kind of had a vision of how his Presidency was going to go, and now that reality is not following the script he had in his head, he's getting more and more disillusioned. He doesn't know where to go from here. Obama seems like he's better at leading when things are going well, and he's not as good at trudging through the mire when things are rough.

    Your comments are right on. Obama loves the glow and adulation of a large political crowd. When he is not loved by everyone, he becomes very disillusioned.

    He looks defeated, because thank God, he is.

    You are correct. It will be interesting to see how effective he is at dealing with a Republican House of Representatives. I have a feeling they will eat his lunch and we wil see more cabinet resignations.
