    Is Papa Obama's Narcissism good or bad for America? - It's about Obama not Healthcare

    Obama's Malignant Narcissism

    Lots of people preen and strut on life's stage without losing their sense of proportion. But I think Obama just turned all his grandiose talk into irrevocable action. I don't think we've had this extreme and radical a president ever before in American history. Lincoln, Wilson, and FDR took radical actions, but only at a time of huge national crises. We don't have a national crisis today. Obama is our national crisis.

    Obama is going for the "nuclear option" to force very bad and very toxic medicine down our throats. He is willing to sacrifice his congressional majorities to get the biggest, most budget-busting entitlement ever imagined into the permanent fabric of American national life. The main beneficiaries of Obamacare will be Obama's ego and the Permanent Left. This is his chance to be FDR, and he can't control his need for that glorified image. He is therefore crossing the Rubicon -- making an irreversible decision that will define his presidency forever, win or lose. This is not just another grandiose gesture. Obama now stands revealed for what he is.

    By choosing the "nuclear option," Obama is demonstrating do-or-die fanaticism. This makes for great TV football, but it's very dangerous for the man in the biggest power seat in the world. We are seeing Obama the Radical taking over from Obama the Pragmatist -- if that one ever really existed. From what we know about his fanatical associates like Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright, sacrificing the Democratic Party majority in Congress would be only a small price to pay.

    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.

    Good luck to all of us.

    Unfortunately, Obama's Narcissism is a lot deeper than just what shows on the surface. He's got some real issues.

    Another "I hate Obama and here's why" thread. Just what we needed.

    There's nothing better than the armchair psychologists who think they can diagnose politicians by seeing them speak on television.

    Seriously, stop being retarded. There are plenty of legitimate things to attack Obama on. Pretending to be a shrink isn't one.

    Hate?

    How do you know that ?

    Perhaps I voted for him and now, like the majority, have come to regret it

    However, yours is a moot point. It has become obvious that the "debate" is no longer about
    healthcare

    Well, it is an article

    But again, it obvious at this point that the real debate is about him and not healthcare.

    "Obama IS our national crisis."

    Well, a majority of Obama's supporters have NOT come to regret it. So either you misspoke, or you're just really bad at math.

    If Obama won the election with 53% of the vote, and now according to RCP has an approval rating of 47%.

    So it looks like a vast majority of Obama's supporters still support him.

    The debate is about him, yes.
    But not because he's making it about him - because pundits and talking heads and Op-Ed authors like the OP are making it about him.
