    Narcissism and Obama

    Understanding Obama: The Making of a Fuhrer
    By Ali Sina

    I must confess, I was not impressed by Sen. Barack Obama from the first time I saw him. At first I was excited to see a black candidate. He looked youthful, spoke well, appeared to be confident, a wholesome presidential package. I was put off soon, not just because of his shallowness but also because there was an air of haughtiness in his demeanor that was unsettling. His posture and his body language were louder than his empty words. Obama's speeches are unlike any political speech we have heard in American history. Never a politician in this land had such a quasi "religious" impact on so many people. The fact that Obama is a total incognito with zero accomplishment makes this inexplicable infatuation alarming. Obama is not an ordinary man. He is not a genius. In fact, he is quite ignorant on most important subjects. Barack Obama is a narcissist. Dr. Sam Vaknin, the author of "Malignant Self Love," also believes, "Barack Obama appears to be a narcissist."

    Understanding Obama: The Making of a Fuhrer
    By Ali Sina

    I must confess, I was not impressed by Sen. Barack Obama from the first time I saw him. At first I was excited to see a black candidate. He looked youthful, spoke well, appeared to be confident, a wholesome presidential package. I was put off soon, not just because of his shallowness but also because there was an air of haughtiness in his demeanor that was unsettling. His posture and his body language were louder than his empty words. Obama's speeches are unlike any political speech we have heard in American history. Never a politician in this land had such a quasi "religious" impact on so many people. The fact that Obama is a total incognito with zero accomplishment makes this inexplicable infatuation alarming. Obama is not an ordinary man. He is not a genius. In fact, he is quite ignorant on most important subjects. Barack Obama is a narcissist. Dr. Sam Vaknin, the author of "Malignant Self Love," also believes, "Barack Obama appears to be a narcissist."

    Vaknin is a world authority on narcissism. He understands it and describes the inner mind of a narcissist like no other person. When he talks about narcissism everyone listens. Vaknin says that Obama's language, posture and demeanor, and the testimonies of his closest, nearest and dearest suggest that the Senator is either a narcissist or he may have narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).

    Narcissists project a grandiose but false image of themselves. Jim Jones, the charismatic leader of People's Temple, the man who led over 900 of his followers to cheerfully commit mass suicide and even murder their own children was also a narcissist. Charles Manson, Joseph Koni, Shoko Asahara, Joe Stalin, Saddam, Mao Zedong, Kim Jong IL, and Adolph Hitler are a few examples of narcissists of our time. All these men had a tremendous influence over their fanciers and followers. They created a personality cult around themselves, and with their blazing speeches elevated their admirer's souls, filled their hearts with enthusiasm and instilled in their minds a new zest for life. Those men gave their followers hope! They promised them the moon, but alas, they invariably brought them to their doom. When you are a victim of a cult of personality, you don't know it until it is too late.

    One determining factor in the development of NPD is childhood abuse. "Obama's early life was decidedly chaotic and replete with traumatic and mentally bruising dislocations," says Vaknin. "Mixed-race marriages were even less common then. His parents went through a divorce when he was an infant (two years old). Obama saw his father only once again, before he died in a car accident. His mother re-married and Obama had to relocate to Indonesia , a foreign land with a radically foreign culture, to be raised by a stepfather. He was raised as an only child, full of himself and no others. He never had to share the spotlight with any siblings. At the age of ten, he was whisked off to live with his maternal (white) grandparents. He saw his mother only intermittently in the following few years and then she vanished from his life in 1979. She died of cancer in 1995."

    One must never underestimate the manipulative genius of pathological narcissists. They project such an imposing personality that it overwhelms those around them. Charmed by the charisma of the narcissist, people become like clay in his hands. They cheerfully do his bidding and delight to be at his service. The narcissist shapes the world around him and reduces others in his own inverted image. He creates a cult of personality; his admirers become his co-dependents.

    Narcissists have no interest in things that do not help them to reach their personal objectives. They are focused on one thing alone, and that is power. All other issues are meaningless to them and they do not want to waste their precious time on trivialities. Anything that does not help them is beneath them and does not deserve their attention. If an issue raised in the Senate does not help Obama in one way or another, he has no interest in it. The "Present" vote is a safe vote; he used the "Present" all the time as a member of the Illinois legislature. No one can criticize him if things go wrong. Why should he implicate himself in issues that may become controversial when they don't help him personally? Those issues are unworthy by their very nature because they are not about him.

    Obama's election as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review led to a contract and an advance to write a book about race relations. The University of Chicago Law School provided him with a fellowship and an office to work on his book. The book took him a lot longer than expected and at the end it devolved into…, guess what? His own autobiography! Instead of writing a scholarly paper focusing on race relations, for which he had been paid, Obama could not resist writing about his most sublime self. He entitled the book "Dreams from My Father."

    Not surprisingly, Adolph Hitler also wrote his own autobiography when he was still nobody. So did Stalin. For a narcissist no subject is as important as his own self. Why would he waste his precious time and genius writing about insignificant things when he can write about such an august being as himself? Narcissists are often callous and even ruthless. As the norm, they lack conscience. This is evident from Obama's lack of interest in his own brother who lives on only one dollar per month. A man who lives in luxury, who takes a private jet to vacation in Hawaii, and who has raised nearly a half billion dollars for his campaign (something unprecedented in history) has no interest in the plight of his own brother. Why? His brother cannot be used for his ascent to power. A narcissist cares for no one but himself.

    This election is like no other election in the history of America . The issues are insignificant compared to what is at stake. What can be more dangerous than having a man bereft of a conscience, a serial liar, and one who cannot distinguish his fantasies from reality as the leader of the free world?

    I hate to sound alarmist, but one must be a fool if one is not alarmed. Many politicians are narcissists. They pose no threat to others. They are simply self-serving and selfish. [Witness Al Gore's Income Tax; it reveals that he gave away NO MONEY to charities, not even to a church!] Obama evinces symptoms of pathological narcissism, which is different from the run-of-the-mill narcissism of a Richard Nixon or Bill Clinton, for example. To him reality and fantasy are intertwined. This is a mental health issue, not just a character flaw. Pathological narcissists are dangerous because they look normal and even intelligent. It is this disguise that makes them treacherous. [Look up the word 'treachery.']

    Today the Democrats have placed all their hopes in Obama. But this man could put an end to their party [and to this great nation]. The great majority of blacks have also decided to vote for Obama. Only a fool does not know that their support for him is racially driven.

    Let us call a spade a spade [No pun intended]. This is racism, pure and simple. The truth is that, while everyone carries a misconceived collective guilt towards blacks for wrongs done centuries ago by a bygone people to a bygone people, the blacks carry a collective rancor, enmity or vendetta towards non-blacks, and to this day want to "stand up" to the white man. They seem to be stuck in 19th century [encouraged by race baiters like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and others].

    The downside of this is, that if Obama turns out to be the disaster I predict, he will cause widespread resentment among the whites. The blacks are unlikely to give up their support of their man. Cult mentality is pernicious and unrelenting. They will dig their heads deeper in the sand and blame Obama's detractors of racism. This will cause a backlash among the whites. The white supremacists will take advantage of the discontent and they will receive widespread support. I predict that in less than four years, racial tensions will increase to levels not seen since the turbulent 1960s. Obama will set the clock back decades. America is the bastion of freedom. The peace of the world depends on the strength of America, and its weakness translates into the triumph of terrorism and victory of rogue nations. It is no wonder that Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez, the Maoist Castroists, the Hezbollah, the Hamas, the lawyers of the Guantanamo terrorists, and virtually all sworn enemies of America are so thrilled by the prospect of "their man" in the White House. America is on the verge of destruction. There is no insanity greater than electing a pathological narcissist as president. ..........................I AGREE 110%. GOD HELP US ALL!!

    The last time I looked, the Second Amendment was still part of the Constitution. Obama has stated publicly that he knows of no legitimate reason for a private citizen to own a firearm. He has supported some of the worst anti-Second Amendment legislation that has ever been written. There is a huge difference between knowing the Constitution and respecting the it. I do not believe that he respects the Constitution as it was written. He and his liberal friends want to rewrite it to suit their own agenda.

    Can you say gravely wounded and not allowed to properly heal? He knows the technology. He just can't physically operate a keyboard for any length of time. Nazi collaborator group? are you kidding? The liberals are closer to the Nazis. National Socialists, That's what the Nazi party was.
    You're seeing too many black helicopters. Purposefully left a financial mess? Didn't Obama vote for and heavily promote the $750 billion bailout? His stimulus bill and the latest budget proposals will plunge this country so far into debt that it will make Bush and the Republicans look like rank amateurs.

    Keep praying Iyke!, On inauguration day, oblaba declared "WE HAVE CHOSEN HOPE OVER FEAR". Barely two weeks later all barak has is despair and fear to sell us on his socialist pork package which 1% is to stimulate the economy, 99% social engineering. Even if it does produce 4 million jobs he promises, that comes out to $220,000 per job and how are we to pay for it???
  • iyke Bureauc... 2009/04/02 16:41:09

    Obama's declaration of Hope over fear is a broad tackle over the gospel of fear permeating the environment that kept people stuck on 9/11 trauma. It takes courage to heal but the hardwork of immediate predicament and block by block repair and reconstruction of both economy and psyche also required acknowledgement of the present situation, hence I do not see his message on the economy as a return to fear and despair. On the same note, I will not defend every inch of Obama's politique but I am certainly bought and remain entrenched in his Hope merchandise. If you have the same merchandise, I will also make a down payment

    How about his PROMISE.....to be "transparent"?
    How about his PROMISE.....to have a minimum five delay period of review and debate before any major legislation would be voted on or signed into law? (NO ONE EVEN READ THE LARGEST GOVERNMENTAL EXPENDITURE IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD! AND HE SIGNED IT!)
    How about his PROMISE.....to be "Truly bipartisan"....and yet Republicans are not eve allowed into meetings.
    How about his PROMISE.....to got back to "science".....yet there is NO CONCLUSIVE OR SOLID SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE FOR "GLOBAL WARMING"? I HAVE MY DOCTORATE DEGREE IN SCIENCE....AND I AM VERY TROUBLED ABOUT THIS TYPE OF SMOKE AND MIRRORS.

    AND ON AND ON..... Stop burying your heads in the Obama "change" sand....and literally think about what is taking place before your eyes. If you truly love this country, you will pause and take a good honest look.

    By what standard? Obama is surely better than McCain or Bush. But what kind of standard is that? If we had "No President At All," that would give us a better result than we've had. Obama is a slight improvement on Bush or McCain, but vastly less qualified than would be necessary to bring about a substantial improvment in the lives of most Americans.

    Obama can't be trusted - heck, he's already changing his positions so that it appears he know what he's talking about. And McCain is a liberal in more ways than I want to count and is already aligning himself with Obama. Too bad he can't figure out what Obama is doing by meeting with him and extending his hand in hope McCain grabs it - and McCain is doing just that.
