The End of the Obama Presidency

In just six short months, Barack Obama's effective presidency is drawing to a close.

The stimulus package he insisted would save the economy instead produced unemployment rates much higher than even his worst forecasts.

The health care package that HAD to pass if the nation was going to survive has been delayed until the fall. Given how quickly the tide of public opinion has turned against it as the details become clear, it will arguably never see the light of day.

The questions about his legitimacy are finally hitting the main-stream media (MSM), even if only to be ridiculed. There are now more news stories running about Obama's Constitutional eligibility than there were at any time during his candidacy.

But the real end of his presidency came when he asserted, without bothering to learn all the facts, that the Cambridge police "acted stupidly" in arresting a screaming man in his own front yard. Normally, arrests of individuals who appear publicly deranged attract little notice, but this particular candidate for psychiatric examination happened to be a black Harvard professor.

Now, being an Ivy League professor does not make one immune from suffering psychological problems, as any number of examples demonstrate, but since Henry Louis Gates Jr. had the good fortune to be a Friend of Barack, the President put the highest office in the land in the service of his own friends by publicly accusing the Cambridge police of racism.

Normally, anyone accused of racism rolls over and apologizes. But this time, the black police chief of Cambridge is championing the actions of his white officer. The wonderful irony of the situation is lost on the MSM: in Cambridge, the races have come together to oppose two common, obnoxious and ignorant foes: a Harvard professor and the President of the United States.

The Cambridge police are now demanding an apology from the President of the United States.

And herein lies the rub.
What is POTUS to do?

He can't apologize to a lowly municipal police department. If he does, he will have admitted to having mis-used his office. The Great Orator will have lost his voice.

Worse, every dictator in the world is watching. If POTUS can be forced to back down by a beat cop and his boss, what could Hugo Chavez and his oil, Iran and its budding nuclear weapons, or China and its growing navy be able to make him do? Barack Obama will be publicly unmasked as a pushover who can be rolled for loose change any time you need a cup of coffee.

On the other hand, if he DOESN'T apologize, he will clearly torpedo the support of a significant number of the people who put him in office. Even now, his popularity is rapidly tanking below 50% among likely voters. Given his inability to back down from his flawed economic plans or apologize for his ludicrous remarks, this number isn't going to go higher anytime soon.

And here's the danger.

If Barack Hussein Obama is truly suffering from narcissistic personality disorder, as has been alleged, we are entering a most dangerous period.

Narcissists are least problematic when they receive the adulation and support they believe they richly deserve. They become the most dangerous as this adulation and support evaporates. When this support evaporates, when the population "turns" on a lunatic, he will lash out at them, he will punish them for daring to disrespect him, he will punish them because they failed to give him his proper due.

Hitler famously tried to burn Paris, he famously advocated a scorched earth retreat policy, and he famously succeeded in destroying Berlin. Why such massive destruction? Because he intended to punish his supporters for having grown cold in their support of him. It's only reasonable. After all, why else would a man of his stature lose, except his old supporters refused to recognize the reality of his greatness? He had to punish them, force them to face the truth of his greatness. If he punished them enough, they would realize their error, return to him, and he would lead them to victory. Paris had to burn. It was the only way to win.

To accomplish this massive destruction, he demanded unswerving loyalty and fanatical action from the dwindling numbers in the Tinfoil Hat Brigades who still followed their Beloved Leader.

If Barack is really on the borderline between sanity and chaos, the events of the next few months may well tip him over the line. Before his support completely collapses, he will be forced to order his dwindling faithful to act in increasingly illegal and violent ways. It will be the only way to prevent the total destruction of his illusory world.

Do you think it won't happen?
There is recent precedent.

At the order of Congress and in accord with its Constitution, Honduras recently used its military forces to oust a sitting president for precisely this breach. Barack Obama, Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez, the three most narcissistic leaders of the Western Hemisphere, strenuously objected to the ouster. If it is allowed to stand, they know what it portends.

As he watches his healthcare initiative go down in flames, he has begun calling names: doctors are now thieving liars, cops are stupid. Anyone who opposes him has a serious defect. This is not how a sane man talks.

So, could the United States find itself facing a similar situation?

Why not?

Insightful post ... yet frightening.

I thought the same thing but I didn't attribute it to O's personality disorder but to the devil who always ends up unsheathing his talons when crossed.

Typical Steve smugness. Boring.

I think the post is completely accurate. He creates this artificial reality-television type environment where he constantly says "this isn't about me" while at the same time doing everything he can to maintain the media spotlight and break in on normal entertainment programming on a consistent basis. His illness allows him to delude himself into ignoring his dwindling numbers, but once reality sets in it would appear the whips will come out. He's already showed this side to the Republicans who did not jump on his stimulus bandwagon, soon it will move to the media and finally the rest of us.

"Thumbs Up" to Steve.

“Tinfoil Hat Brigades.” Nice attempt to reassign the label from the Birthers to Obama’s supporters, but it’s not going to work (though it’s long been known that many MoveOn/Daily Kos Obama supporters are certified tinfoil-hatters). You need to focus on the problems and evils of Obama’s policies. Entertaining the noncitizenship claims is a distraction that corrodes the credibility of your arguments. It’s not advantageous to Obama’s critics and opponents that “questions about his legitimacy are finally hitting the main-stream media (MSM), even if only to be ridiculed.” Quite the contrary, as it helps marginalise conservatives, undercutting their political effectiveness.

We can’t count Obama out just yet, for all his missteps and the fading of his divine aura as reality sets in. Clinton botched things so badly in his first year or so that he is rightly credited for enabling the Republicans to seize both houses of Congress for the first time in decades . . . and yet he still went on (with the help of that odd billionaire Perot) to get reelected. Stumbling or flopping on his face won’t be enough to stop Obama’s agenda or prevent his reelection, and the continuing disarray and incoherence seen on the Right (of which the Birther movement is a symptom) is a very bad sign. “Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad.” When it comes to building and mobilising support, the Republicans and the right wing have been showing signs of “madness” lately, while with the Left, insane and twisted as their positions and their agenda truly are, has been showing better political savvy. So far anyway. If your armchair psychoanalysis of Obama has any merit, perhaps the Left will again go insane politically, but even so I wouldn’t put any hopes in that without making positive plans to do something to overthrow the Left in the next few elections.

Jordanes, Hitler stayed in power up until he committed suicide in the bunker. His power was effectively over with the invasion of France, but he continued to force destruction on the world.

Whether or not Obama gets re-elected is not germaine to my point. He can rig the elections and get back in, sure. The point is, he gets dangerous as he realizes he is losing real support.

As for Tin Foil Hats, they are always monomaniacs. The reaction to this post is a fine example. I touch on a myriad of different difficult issues Obama faces (failed stimulus, failed health care, eligibility questions, race-baiting, foreign policy with three different countries, dropping popularity, and an linked reference to Obama's dropping charges against Black Panthers and violence in the polling place).

But the nutcases who insist on Obama's eligibility keep harping on ONE point to the exclusion of all others being made.

That's the sign of a tin-foil hat. The writer covers a HOST of issues, but the Tin Foil Hat Brigade focuses on ONE of the issues and insist you deal with that ONE issue the way they like or they won't pay attention to any of your other points.

The MSM and its supporters have become Tin Foil Hats when it comes to Obama eligibility. Discussion is even MORE verboten than abortion.

Wow, That name-calling aspect of the narcissist you pointed out it right on! If I might add, name-calling is the beginning of dehumanization.

On a Spanish-language news broadcast some months back, Chavez said, “The rich are not human, they are animals in human form.” An Independent news media? Why they're harmful to the "people" because they're counter-revolutionary. He's also used that old stand-by: anti-semitism. Oh yeah, you can't leave out those wascally Jooz.

It looks like dehumanizing the opposition or someone/group who is hated by a narcissist is the beginning of getting "rid" of them.

Jeff H. here. Passing strange that I saw similar rumblings of disaster shortly after the election of the Puer-in-chief.

Steve Kellmeyer said...

Yes. I made similar predictions as well, long before he got elected and sworn in.

Barack Obama is evil. So far, he has not managed to inflict the full extent of his evil upon the nation, but the day is young.

Patrick said...

Just look at the long term damage he's managed in seven months. It'll be interesting to see what he is willing to do as his term nears its end.

Ah. How reassuring.

And so did Clinton. Granted that your armchair psychoanalysis of Obama is accurate, it still doesn't mean that Obama is nearing the end of his effective political power. Indeed, you're saying that he's quite capable of wreaking even worse havoc, and is almost certain to do so.

As for Tin Foil Hats, they are always monomaniacs. The reaction to this post is a fine example. ***

Please retract that, Steve. You know full well who I am, and that I am not psychologically disturbed, nor is my comment an example of monomania. I traffick in no nutty conspiracy theories, which is the only thing "tin foil hat" refers to no matter how hard you try to give it a new definition.

I touch on a myriad of different difficult issues Obama faces ***

Yeah, and I didn't just talk about one issue or relate everything back to it either. There's just no monomania there.

But the nutcases who insist on Obama's eligibility keep harping on ONE point to the exclusion of all others being made. That's the sign of a tin-foil hat. ***

I'm not aware that there are any "nutcases who insist on Obama's eligibility" who also keep harping on one point to the exclusion of all others being made. . . and I hope you weren't referring to me.

All points of view are viable however where the hell is congress and why are they not impeaching Obama for the fraud alone of Obamacare, Bengahzi and Fast and Furious! Where are they?

Colette Savage said...
