Today is Saturday, February 9, 2013. As this is written, police in California are hunting former officer Christopher Dorner who has gone on a murderous rampage. He left behind a long “manifesto” setting out a list of perceived insults, indignities and slights going back to his childhood and threatening to kill those his disturbed mind feels to be responsible.
While watching FNN this morning, a psychiatrist declared that all the evidence points to this fellow being a NARCISSIST. He offered that one of the major symptoms of narcissism is an unwarranted elevated sense of great self-worth/self-esteem. He then predicted that this disorder will almost certainly lead this man to continue until he is stopped and/or killed and, if cornered, will probably present himself for “suicide by cop.”
During the early days of Obama’s emergence as a candidate for the White House, Dr. Sam Vaknin, who has written extensively on the subject of narcissism, penned several articles describing Obama not as merely a narcissist, but a malignant narcissist. Thanks to his low-information victimhood welfare, angry feral adolescent constituents (not to mention massive vote fraud), Obama won not one, but two terms as the head of this nation.(The topics of his never having been properly vetted and constitutional INeligibility are subjects for another day.)
Let me connect those dots.
Like Dorner, Obama has frequently voiced and written about slights and indignities going back to his childhood.
Like Dorner, Obama has voiced and written that he holds America and the system of capitalism as responsible for those slights and indignities.
Unlike Dorner, until Congress or the Article 3 courts step in and stop him, Obama’s actions so far (destruction of the economy, ongoing weakening of our defenses) should tell any sane adult that he is hell bent on taking the America and the system he hates into a situation where suicide not by cop but by China, Russia, Islam (etc.) is a growing reality.
As further evidence, I offer his recent failure to act in the murders of 4 Americans in Benghazi.
Panetta’s Senate testimony revealed that Obama was MIA as that tragedy unfolded. After disingenuously telling Panetta to “do what you need to do,” in an act reminiscent of his voting “Present” throughout his protectively pusillanimous state and national senate tenures, Obama stepped out of the loop.
