Just George W. Bush has stated that the clarity of history, time and future generation will define his Presidency so to will it define Obama and I believe it will be defined as one of a sociopath. Trying to set aside my utter dislike of Obama, if we look at his actions and behavior stacked up against the clinical description of a sociopath more widely known today as antisocial personality disorder you will find Obama in every part of the description.
A few days ago I was reading an article in a local magazine called “The Sociopath Revealed” it was just a general article aimed at no one person and that as the title said, revealed the tell tale traits of a clinical sociopath. While I read the article I kept thinking ‘Wow, that’s Obama.” So what is a sociopath anyway?
Here is the article I read, it is a Flash based magazine and the article starts on page 62. (Better get on it they don’t archive their issues and when it’s gone it’s gone.) But being a nice guy I’ve screen captured the article for you to read.

If you read that article does it sound like anyone you know? Does it sound like Obama? The article above and the article that follows below are independent of one another and both sound like a autobiography of Obama – it is in fact uncanny just how much of these descriptions fit Obama’s personality to a tee.
I’m not going to cover everyone – you’ll get the point fast enough. I will quote the description of a sociopath and then show something Obama has done or said that fits the description.
Protect yourself from sociopaths Learn to recognize the traits—then stay away
Psychopaths are often witty and articulate. They can be amusing and entertaining conversationalists, ready with a quick and clever comeback, and can tell unlikely but convincing stories that cast themselves in a good light. They can be very effective in presenting themselves well and are often very likable and charming.
Typically, psychopaths attempt to appear experts in sociology, psychiatry, medicine, psychology, philosophy, poetry, literature, art or law. A signpost to this trait is often a smooth lack of concern at being found out that they are not.
Obama is often witty and charming, smiling at you all while stabbing you in the back. They also lie to appear knowledgeable in subject they are not. Example: “Obama got his facts completely wrong. He stated that a surgeon gets paid $50,000 for a leg amputation when, in fact, Medicare pays a surgeon between $740 and $1,140 for a leg amputation.”
Psychopaths have a narcissistic and grossly inflated view of their self-worth and importance, a truly astounding egocentricity and sense of entitlement. They see themselves as the center of the universe, as superior beings who are justified in living according to their own rules.
Really do I need to remind you of the “sea level will recede, the planet will heal” he blabbered in a speech and the fact he so arrogantly pointed out that he won. Example: “President Obama listened to Republican gripes about his stimulus package during a meeting with congressional leaders Friday morning – but he also left no doubt about who’s in charge of these negotiations. “I won,” Obama noted matter-of-factly, according to sources familiar with the conversation.”
Psychopaths are seldom embarrassed about their legal, financial or personal problems. Rather, they see them as temporary setbacks, the results of bad luck, unfaithful friends or an unfair and incompetent system.
Remember Obama said his massive loss in the midterm was not because of him, it was because you were just too stupid to get his grand vision. He didn’t explain things to you in words you simpletons could understand. Example: “Barack Obama, in an interview with CBS said that he acknowledged his failure to communicate his economic-rescue message to anxious Americans. He did not blame his policies for the loss, but rather the lack of communication with the American people.” Do I really need to remind you of how many speeches he made? No, I didn’t think so.
Psychopaths feel that their abilities will enable them to become anything they want to be. Given the right circumstances—opportunity, luck, willing victims—their grandiosity can pay off spectacularly. For example, the psychopathic entrepreneur “thinks big,” but it’s usually with someone else’s money.
Spread the wealth – trickle up poverty and what’s yours is mine and what’s mine is mine. Obama has spent your money, my money, our kid’s money, our grandkid’s money and generations to come monies. Example: “In the first 19 months of the Obama administration, the federal debt held by the public increased by $2.5260 trillion, which is more than the cumulative total of the national debt held by the public that was amassed by all U.S. presidents from George Washington through Ronald Reagan.”
The feelings of other people are of no concern to psychopaths. Psychopaths view people as little more than objects to be used for their own gratification. The weak and the vulnerable—whom they mock, rather than pity—are favorite targets.
Psychopaths display a general lack of empathy. They are indifferent to the rights and suffering of family members and strangers alike. If they do maintain ties with their spouses or children it is only because they see their family members as possessions, much like their stereos or automobiles.
Because of their inability to appreciate the feelings of others, some psychopaths are capable of behavior that normal people find not only horrific but baffling. For example, they can torture and mutilate their victims with about the same sense of concern that we feel when we carve a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner.
No drama Obama is what they call him which is a misnomer for cold and detached. Example: “Obama’s lack of empathy has been quite apparent in the Arizona immigration situation, in the current appeals for more immediate action in the Gulf, in his hasty appraisal of the “stupid” cops involved in the Gates affair, and in his ongoing indifference to the genuine needs of the besieged state of Israel.”
However, except in movies and books, very few psychopaths commit crimes of this sort. Their callousness typically emerges in less dramatic, though still devastating, ways: parasitically bleeding other people of their possessions, savings and dignity; aggressively doing and taking what they want; shamefully neglecting the physical and emotional welfare of their families; engaging in an unending series of casual, impersonal and trivial sexual relationships; and so forth.
You may remember in 2004 when Obama gave the convention speech and Michelle gave this glowing baby-daddy welcome he ignored her completely when he came out, not to mention him sending them away at the Grant Park speech in January 2009. Then his has repeatedly stated he is going to take from the haves and give to the have-not’s or in other words take from those that produce and give to those that take. Example: “Obama told us he was going to use Congress to redistribute the wealth — explicitly. And he thinks it’s in the Constitution. My friend Steve Schippert tried to call attention to this interview about ten days before the election, but few noticed.”
Lying, deceiving and manipulation are natural talents for psychopaths. Given their glibness and the facility with which they lie, it is not surprising that psychopaths successfully cheat, bilk, defraud, con and manipulate people and have not the slightest compunction about doing so. They are often forthright in describing themselves as con men, hustlers or fraud artists. Their statements often reveal their belief that the world is made up of “givers and takers,” predators and prey, and that it would be very foolish not to exploit the weaknesses of others.
Some of their operations are elaborate and well thought out, whereas others are quite simple: stringing along several women at the same time, or convincing family members and friends that money is needed “to bail me out of a jam.” Whatever the scheme, it is carried off in a cool, self-assured, brazen manner.
The Obama rhetoric around healthcare, stimulus, cap and trade, etc etc ring a bell. It’s all about taking from one and giving to another they and they alone deem more deserving and if they have to lie to get it, so be it. Example: “Obama loves to make up things that are patently untrue, like every economist agrees his $800 billion economic stimulus “has done its job,” the economy “is moving in the right direction,” and the Bush tax cuts caused the trillion dollar deficits.”
Psychopaths seem to suffer a kind of emotional poverty that limits the range and depth of their feelings. While at times they appear cold and unemotional, they are prone to dramatic, shallow and short-lived displays of feeling. Careful observers are left with the impression that they are play-acting and that little is going on below the surface.
Laboratory experiments using biomedical recorders have shown that psychopaths lack the physiological responses normally associated with fear. The significance of this finding is that, for most people, the fear produced by threats of pain or punishment is an unpleasant emotion and a powerful motivator of behavior. Not so with psychopaths; they merrily plunge on, perhaps knowing what might happen but not really caring.
Obama uncaring and detached? NO! Example: “Barack Obama’s salute to the 13 dead from a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, was largely unemotional. The most personal part of the speech at today’s memorial service at Fort Hood was a series of anecdotes describing the families and aspirations of each of the victims.”
Psychopaths are unlikely to spend much time weighing the pros and cons of a course of action or considering the possible consequences. “I did it because I felt like it,” is a common response.
More than displays of temper, impulsive acts often result from an aim that plays a central role in most of the psychopath’s behavior: to achieve immediate satisfaction, pleasure or relief. So, family members, employers and co-workers typically find themselves standing around asking themselves what happened—jobs are quit, relationships broken off, plans changed, houses ransacked, people hurt, often for what appears to be little more than a whim.
Psychopaths tend to live day-to-day and to change their plans frequently. They give little serious thought to the future and worry about it even less.
Oh do I really need to link this one? Rushed stimulus, rushed healthcare, rushed everything, record spending and completely ignoring what the American said in protest of slow down, read the bill, stop deficit spending and let’s look at a way to fix it – nope! For Obama it was do it NOW then you’ll see what’s in it and worry about it never.
These descriptions of a sociopath go on and on – but why bore you with all that – suffice to say Barack Hussein Obama is a clinical sociopath with narcissistic personality disorder and I believe history will tell that Obama has a serious mental illness that if not reeled in will destroy a nation.
But don’t take my word for it – what do the doctors say?
A Shrink Asks: What’s Wrong with Obama?
Many people attribute Obama’s oddness to his narcissism. True, Obama has a gargantuan ego, and he is notoriously thin-skinned.
Yet a personality disorder like narcissism does not explain Obama’s strangeness: his giggling while being asked about the economy; his continuing a shout-out rather than announcing the Ft. Hood shootings; or his vacations, golfing, partying and fundraising during the calamitous oil spill.
Take also Obama’s declaring on the “Today Show” that he wants to know whose ass to kick. Consummate narcissists would never stoop to this vulgar display of adolescent machismo.
Obama is flat when passion is needed; he’s aggressive when savvy is required. What’s most worrisome is that Obama doesn’t even realize that his behavior is inappropriate.
So if it’s not just simple narcissism, what is wrong with Obama? Since I’ve never evaluated him, I can’t say for sure. But I can hazard some educated guesses.
If I saw a client as disconnected as him, the first thing I would wonder: Is something wrong with his brain? And I’d consider the following theoretical diagnostic possibilities.
Now the good Doctor goes on to cover a number of scenarios and concludes Obama has antisocial personality disorder – which is more classically known as what? – You guessed it a sociopath.
Along with the brain issues are personality disorders: narcissism, paranoia, passive-aggressiveness. There’s even the possibility of the most destructive character defect of all, an antisocial personality. Untreated abuse can foster antisocial traits, especially among boys.
If my assessment is accurate, what does this mean?
It means that liberals need to wake up and spit out the Kool-Aid…and that conservatives should put aside differences, band together, and elect as many Republicans as possible.
Because Obama will not change. He will not learn from his mistakes. He will not grow and mature from on-the-job experience. In fact, over time, Obama will likely become a more ferocious version of who he is today.
Why? Because this is a damaged person. Obama’s fate was sealed years ago growing up in his strange and poisonous family. Later on, his empty vessel was filled with the hateful bile of men like Rev. Wright and Bill Ayers.
Obama will not evolve; he will not rise to the occasion; he will not become the man he was meant to be. This is for one reason and one reason alone:
He is not capable of it.
Time will tell but my money is on a sociopathic personality – destructive not only to himself and his family but to the country.
