A Narcissist President

Our computer was down for several days so now we are trying to catch up on our e-mail.I just read one that I felt was very interesting/worth sharing. This is the first time I've heard anyone call one of our two main stream presidential candidates a narcissist but I think the author is on to something here. I hope you will read and think about it between now and November 4, 2008.

"Please read all of this.
I have spent a lot of time studying Obama over the last few weeks.
I read all of the 300 page book "The Obama Nation" by Jerome Corsi.
Mr. Corsi- whom I have spoken with and trust- started researching Barack in 2005
after he heard him speak at the 2004 Democratic Convention.
I believe his book as well as many other sources I have researched in
these last weeks substantiates that which Ali Sina -who I do not know- has
written below.
I realize that this information may make some of you not like me as much any more,
but I believe that our great nation is at maybe the most dangerous cross-road
she has been at since her birth. I believe it is so serious that we must ALL
take a stand. I don't pretend to know Barack's heart , but I have checked his
record and acquaintences and to me he is just plain scary.
It is OUR watch and we will answer to our future generations as to what we allowed.
I'm reminded of the saying "All that has to happen for evil to prevail is for good
men to do nothing". Let's not be found doing nothing.
The last generation was not exposed in school to the teachings that most of
us were so we owe it to them to give them our input before they vote. For us all
to just silently vote and go no farther could be a travesty.
May God save the Republic,
Stan"

I urge everyone to read this all the way down and to pay very close
attention to the last paragraph.

Understanding Obama: The Making of a Fuehrer

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. Cultic 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. Americais 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'm sure you have heard it said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results each time. Kind of like voting for a Democrat or Republican and expecting them to uphold the United States Constitution.

Baldwin/Castle in 2008.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

I have read alot of articles trying to sway my decision, but I must admit, this one takes the cake. Why? Why does everyone who does not agree with what Obama says have to bash him and try to make him look bad. You have not walked in his shoes, you haven't ever even spoke to him, so who are you to judge him? You don't know his struggle and have no right to call him Narcissist. If that is the case then we all are narcissist. It is people like you and your lude comments that keep racisim alive. you don't know what it is like to be black but can say that blacks are stuck in the past, when in reality, your comments are what keep it going.
I hope that Obama, win or no win, holds himself in the same manner, president or no president, I genuily believe that he is a good man, a good father and a good husband.
Please, do not judge a book by its cover. Check before spec. You should learn how to do that.
