CENTRAL VIEW for Monday, July 14, 2014

The Sources of Obamaian Conduct

Back in 2008, some conservatives worried about presidential Candidate Barack Hussein Obama (BHO) whose most formative years were spent in third-world Indonesia and later years were spent living among a decidedly left-wing family on an island separated from the U.S. mainland by 2,467 miles of ocean. Others ask how someone could be elected president of the Harvard Law Review without ever having published an article about the law? Some claimed that his autobiography, Dreams from My Father, was actually written by former 1960s terrorist, Bill Ayers.

No doubt, many of us who marched for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the 1960s are now disappointed that a person of color has become, for whatever reasons, an even less-respected world figure than the Lilly-white Jimmy Carter. Now, after 6.5 years of Obamaian behavior, the questions buzzing among conservatives on the Internet are these: Is the chaos in U.S. foreign and domestic policy the result of a president too small for the job or is this chaos something intended all along by President Obama and his closest adviser, the Iranian-born, Valerie Jarrett?

Either way, BHO seems determined to convert the United States into an open-border, European-style socialist state. And, pray tell, why not? He was elected twice, with his socialist world-view clearly spelled out in two autobiographies that the major media either never read or still chooses to ignore. Apparently, President Obama believes he has a mandate to run the Executive Branch anyway he pleases, even in violation of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Today, as we watch the humanitarian crisis on our southern border unfold, the words of Vladimir Lenin come to mind: "Unevenness of economic and political development is the inflexible law of capitalism. It follows from this that the victory of Socialism may come originally in a few capitalist countries or even in a single capitalist country. The victorious proletariat of that country, having expropriated the capitalists and having organized Socialist production at home, would rise against the remaining capitalist world, drawing to itself in the process the oppressed classes of other countries."

In a recent speech in Austin, Texas, BHO made reference to himself 199 times -- every 12 seconds. Dr. SamVaknin, the author of Malignant Self Love, thinks BHO suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Here is the Wikipedia definition of NPD:

"Narcissistic personality disorder is one of a group of conditions called ’Cluster B’ or ’dramatic’ personality disorders. People with these disorders have intense, unstable emotions and a distorted self-image. Narcissistic personality disorder is further characterized by an abnormal love of self, an exaggerated sense of superiority and self-importance, and a preoccupation with success and power. However, these attitudes and behaviors do not reflect true self-confidence. Instead, the attitudes conceal a deep sense of insecurity and a fragile self-esteem. People with narcissistic personality disorders also often have a complete lack of empathy for others."

By refusing to view the human suffering on our southern border, is President Obama displaying a complete lack of empathy for others? Or, is he simply trying to put some political distance between himself and the illegal immigration chaos for which his policies are largely responsible. We report. You decide.
