My friends; We are hearing all sorts of leaks coming allegedly from members of the White House staff concerning our Fearless Leader's strange, and disaffected behavior: He is not terribly interested in his job duties, is aloof and removed, yet given to vitriolic tantrums which excoriate his staff to the point of alienation and resignation, and many insiders now secretly fear that he may be close to psychosis. [ Does anyone recognize this kind of behavioral description as similar to someone in our not too distant past, 65 or so years ago??]. This behavior has allegedly become more and more extreme, to the point that psychotropic drugs have been prescribed and are being taken.

I submit to you that if these "leaked stories" are accurate, as opposed to someone's flights of fancy, this Country is now in a posture of critical danger that rivals ANY of our present worldwide threats which come from the outside. This is a person who has his finger on enough destuctive weaponry to incinerate the world---yet, if these leaked stories are accurate, we apparently could fall victim as a result of those in his inner circle who are enabling absolute lunacy, by refusing to do their duty to the people of the United States.

Here is what I propose: All of us must now get to every Cabinet Head, and our Senators and members of the House of Representatives, and put the challenge to them: Is this or is this not BEING HIDDEN!!? IS THIS OR IS THIS NOT TRUE!? If it is true, then the Vice President and the Cabinet Heads MUST act in accordance with the Twentyfifth [25th] Amendment.

Read the 25th, and see the wisdom written into it.

LET'S HAVE THE 25TH, BY THE 25TH of DECEMBER

John Boehner is new Speaker. Then Biden is incapacitated and Obama is assylumized (my word) and we have a Republican Prez. Just a thought.

The Republicans won the majority in the House. The Democrats still have the majority in the Senate, and Obama is a Democrat. Biden's Vice President, and presides in the Senate.

I have been pondering this topic since LLE threw it out there for us to ponder.I found this article of which I found interest:

A Shrink Asks: What's Wrong with Obama?
By Robin of Berkeley
So what is the matter with Obama? Conservatives have been asking this question for some time. I've written a number of articles trying to solve the mystery.

Even some liberals are starting to wonder. James Carville railed about Obama's blasé attitude after the catastrophic oil spill. The New York Times' Maureen Dowd revamped Obama's "Yes We Can" motto into "Will We Ever?"

The liberal women of the TV show "The View" have expressed sympathy for Michelle Obama's living with a man so out of touch. Peggy Noonan, hardly a vehement Obama foe, recently pronounced him disconnected.

Obama's odd mannerisms intrigue a psychotherapist like me. He also presents a serious diagnostic challenge.

For one, Obama's teleprompter and the men behind the Blackberry keep him well-scripted. We know so little about the facts of his life.

But it's more than just a lack of information. Obama himself is a strange bird. He doesn't fit easily into any diagnostic category.

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.

--Physical problems: There are a multitude of physiological conditions that can cause people to act strangely. For instance: head injuries, endocrine disturbances, epilepsy, and toxic chemical exposure.

It makes me wonder: Did Obama ever have a head injury? His stepfather in Indonesia was purportedly an alcoholic abuser. Was Obama subject to any physical abuse?

-- Drugs and alcohol: Damage to the brain from drugs and alcohol can also cause significant cognitive impairments. Obama once said that there were 57 states -- and didn't correct himself. Memory problems can be caused by both illicit and prescription drug use.

Obama admits to a history of drug use in his youth. Did his usage cause some damage? Does Obama still use?

--Asperger's Syndrome: Also known as high-functioning autism, Asperger's causes deficits in social skills. A person with Asperger's can't read social cues. Consequently, he can be insensitive and hurtful without even knowing it.

Could Obama have Asperger's? He might have some mild traits, but certainly not the full-blown disorder. In contrast to Obama, those with Asperger's get fixated on some behavior, like programming computers. Obama lacks this kind of passion and zeal.

--Mental Illness: Obama's family tree is replete with the unbalanced. His maternal great-grandmother committed suicide. His grandfather, Stanley Dunham, was particularly unhinged: He was expelled from high school for punching his principal; named his daughter Stanley because he wanted a boy; and exposed young Barry to not just drunken trash talk, but unrestricted visits with alleged pedophile Frank Marshall Davis (who might or might not be Obama's biological father). Barack Sr. was an abusive, alcoholic bigamist.

Since mental illness runs in the family, does Obama have any signs? Yes and no. No, he is not a schizophrenic babbling about Martians. But there are red flags for some other conditions.

While Obama doesn't appear to hallucinate, he seems to have delusions. His believing he has a Messiah-like special gift smacks of grandiose delusions. His externalizing all blame to conservatives, George W. Bush, or the "racist" bogeyman hints at persecutory delusions.

Along with a delusional disorder, Obama may fit for a mild psychotic disorder called schizotypal disorder. It may explain some of Obama's oddness.

People with schizotypal disorder hold bizarre beliefs, are suspicious and paranoid, and have inappropriate and constricted affect. They have few close friends and are socially awkward. A schizotypal is someone like your strange cousin Becky who is addicted to astrology, believes she is psychic, and is the oddball at social gatherings.

Schizotypal Disorder does ring some bells vis-à-vis Obama. One way the diagnosis doesn't fit, however, is that schizotypals are generally harmless, odd ducks. Not so with Obama.

--Trauma: My gut tells me that Obama was seriously traumatized in childhood. His mother disregarded his basic needs, dragged him all over the place, and ultimately abandoned him.

But I think there may be something even more insidious in his family background. While I can't prove it, the degree of Obama's disconnect reminds me of my sexually abused clients.

With serious sexual abuse, the brain chemistry may change. The child dissociates -- that is, disconnects from his being -- in order to cope. Many adult survivors still dissociate, from occasional trances to the most extreme cases of multiple personality disorder.

Apparently, young Barry was left in the care of Communist Frank Marshall Davis, who admitted to molesting a 13-year-old girl. As a teenager, Obama wrote a disturbing poem, "Pop," that evoked images of sexual abuse -- for instance, describing dual amber stains on both his and "Pop's" shorts.

Would trauma explain Obama's disconnect? In many ways, yes. A damaged and unattached child may develop a "false self." To compensate for the enormous deficits in identity and attachment, the child invents his own personality. For Obama, it may have been as a special, gifted person.

Let's return now to my original question: What is wrong with Obama? My guess is a great deal. The answer is complex and likely includes some combination of the above.

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.

to the "truth", IMO. We [ the people of the USA] probably will never know for certain. Read Robin of Berkley's analysis, and then read the after-the-fact behavioral analyses of Adolf Hitler, and you will see strikingly similar histories and characteristics.

The one set of events that is most telling for both personalities, IMO, is what sometimes is referred to as "premature confrontation". That is, both of these heavily narcissistic--messianic personas were finally faced with events that could not be repressed, overlooked, rationalized away, or forgotten, despite the fact that they would have dearly loved to.

AH had to face the fact, relatively early in the war, that all of his megalomeniacal, messianic fervor was now being seen as empty and effete rhetoric by the military and the citizenry, and he began to realize that he would be defeated both from within and from without. BO had to face the fact early in his administration, that he was in over his head, and his superficial "competency" was quickly being discovered by friend and foe, alike. The recent elections were a clear repudiation of any of his so-called accomplishments, and this was too much for him to bear. Neither of them were anywhere near being ready to accept these devastating events--hence, premature confrontation.

In both cases, they could not face these persona-shattering events, and hence began their descents into psychosis or near psychosis.[ If you cannot face your present reality, you might have to invent a new one that feels better].

Disclaimer: Most of you know something of my background, . The above "analysis" is merely opinion, based upon 78 years experience and education. IN NO WAY am I claiming competency equivalent to a PhD in the Behavioral Sciences. But opinions are like belly-buttons--almost everone has one.

LLE's information

LLE,
I read the original post and I am curious as to where the information came from. It seems counter to what the obama White House has showed with open information regarding unfavorable depictions of the President. Would you be so kind as to list the source so i can pass this information on to my email address book?

thank you
clint

As to the "information" about Obama's emotional posture, there is plenty on the internet, but the quantity does not necessariy demonstrate validity, as my posting indicated. The big question is IF these "revelations" [like the Ulsterman blog allegedly aquired from a high WH [former] official] can be proven to have a kernal of validity, this country has a large, serious problem to deal with. I believe the Ulsterman material got started by a reputedly surreptitious meeting at a Starbucks Coffee House, so it may be a clever way of getting free advertising for Starbucks as opposed to anything relevant about Obama. However, perhaps some energetic news reporters can be the next Woodwrd&Bernstein team and get to this edition of "deep throat".

I have been busy with work and life in general. As it was hunting season, I was in the mountains as much as possible hunting the elusive wapiti in the Rocky mountains as well as the Cascades. I will check out the Ulsterman material, I am assuming if I place "Ulsterman" in a web search engine i will be directed to a blog or something similar.

thanks again for the information

intriguing, even if I gave up hunting a long time ago.

While you are checking out Ulsterman, also check out Wayne Madsen, and {Ret} General Paul E. Vallely. for other illuminating opinions/beliefs and data sources. My gut feel is really that old cliche about "where there is smoke there may be, or may have been fire".

As an interesting data point, look at the significant exodus of high level WH staff, long before it is traditionally expected in a four year administration.
