“Insider” says Obama is “Losing It”
September 18, 2010

By Abraxas

On September 7, 2010, the blog “Newsflavor” published an interview with a mysterious White House insider who commented on Obama. The observations of that Insider are devastating – as evidenced by the title of the interview: “The President Is Losing It”.

See Newsflavor article here. http://newsflavor.com/opinions/white-house-insider-on-obama-the-presiden...

To begin with, the Insider confessed that Obama loved campaigning for President but he did not love being one.

“He clearly didn’t like the work of being President though, and that attitude was felt by the entire White House staff within weeks after the inauguration. Obama the tireless, hard working candidate became a very tepid personality to us.”

“…he takes his meetings just like any other president would, though even then, he seems to lack a certain focus and on a few occasions, actually leaves with the directive that (he) be given a summary of the meeting at a later date. I hear he plays a lot of golf, and watches a lot of television – ESPN mainly. I’ll tell you this – if you want to see President Obama get excited about a conversation, turn it to sports. That gets him interested. You start talking about Congress, or some policy, and he just kinda turns off. It’s really very strange. I mean, we were all led to believe that this guy was some kind of intellectual giant, right? Ivy League and all that. Well, that is not what I saw. Barack Obama doesn’t have a whole lot of intellectual curiosity. When he is off script, he is what I call a real “slow talker”. Lots of ummms, and lots of time in between answers where you can almost see the little wheel in his head turning very slowly.”

The Insider than offered even scarier insight:

“As bad as it might look to voters based on what they do know, it’s much worse. The infighting is off the charts. You got a Chief of Staff who despises cabinet members, advisors who despise the Chief of Staff, a President and First Lady having their own issues…” At this point, the interviewer asked the Insider about the Obama’s marriage – at which point the Insider freaked and tried to back off:

“Ok, look, just like any other marriage, folks have issues. The Obamas are no different, except of course they are very high profile. I was told they were having issues before the campaign, and they have even more issues now. Maybe that is why Obama seems so detached – not so much the stress of the White House, but the stress of personal issues.”

I must say that this totally corroborates my suspicion that something is terribly wrong with the Obama marriage. How else to explain Michelle publicly humiliating him (not to mention politically damaging him) by abandoning him on his birthday while she treats herself to a hideously expensive vacation on the taxpayers’ dime at the height of the worst Depression this nation has seen? And, of course, there’s the mystery of his missing wedding ring.

When the Insider was asked about the title of his interview (i.e., “The President Is Losing It”), the Insider explained:

“I mean to say that he is losing whatever spark he had during the campaign. When you take away the crowds, Obama gets noticeably smaller. He shrinks up inside of himself. He just doesn’t seem to have the confidence to do the job of President, and it’s getting worse and worse. Case in point – just a few days before I left, I saw first hand the President of the United States yelling at a member of his staff. He was yelling like a spoiled child. And then he pouted for several moments after. I wish I was kidding, or exaggerating, but I am not. The President of the United States threw a temper tantrum. The jobs reports are always setting him off, and he is getting increasingly conspiratorial over the unemployment numbers. I never heard it myself, but was told that Obama thinks the banking system is out to get him now. That they and the big industries are making him pay for trying to regulate them more. That is the frame of mind the President is in these days.”

The Insider, however, stubbornly insisted that Obama would “absolutely” win if he should run again in 2012. But when asked if that would be a good thing, the Insider had this to say:

“No. Obama is not up to the job of being president. He simply doesn’t seem to care about the work involved. You want to know what? Obama is lazy. He really is. And it is getting worse and worse. Would another four years of Obama be the best thing for America? No it would not. What this country needs is a president who is focused on the job more than on themselves. Obama is not that individual. I actually hope he doesn’t run again. Looking back, as much fun as the campaign in 2008 was, Hillary Clinton should have been the nominee. Hillary was ready to be president. Obama was not ready. He had never lost a campaign. Everything was handed to him. He doesn’t really understand the idea of work – real, hard, get your heart and soul into it work. And frankly, that is very disappointing to a whole lot of us…”

(You aren’t the only one.)

The Insider then went on to forecast the fate of the Democratic Party in the coming year.

Read the Insider here.

The Insider said the Democratic Party is in the worst state he’s seen in over 30 years. And the problem began in 2006 when Reid and (more importantly) Pelosi were put in charge of Congress.

“Look, I’ve been in the Democrat Party in one way or other, be it campaigns, fundraising, lobbying, whatever…we lost our way in 2006. We put in place a Speaker of the House who is an absolute public relations train wreck. The lady is a… She’s tough. Yeah, she’s real tough. But outside of the halls of Congress, forget it. She’s a nut to the American people because America was and is a right of center country. As a Democrat I say that, because I understand it. Bill Clinton understood it. Pelosi, Reid, Obama…they don’t accept that fact.”

But then the Insider goes on to make a devastating confession so anathema to the Democratic Party that it is grounds for them excommunicating him:

“People would kill me for saying this – actually you know what, there are more and more of us Democrats saying what I am going to say in one form or another… Sarah Palin understands America more than Barack Obama. Yes, she has a minority of our far left who hates her, and some in our media are part of that group, but overall, she seems to get America. Americans aren’t a complicated people, and neither is Sarah Palin, so that probably works in her favor. But President Obama is just out of touch. He really doesn’t understand what America is. What it’s about. Or who it is. And that is a real problem for him – and the Democratic party at this moment in its history.”

Things then get interesting when the interviewer asks the Insider if he liked Michelle Obama:

“Like is not a word we use in D.C. very much. Do I respect the First Lady? Sure. She seems like a strong woman, a good mother. I wasn’t around her really enough to say anything more than that. Or, at least, I would rather not.”

When the Insider was asked if he was afraid of Michelle, his answer was again very evasive:

“No – not anymore than anyone else who was around her as briefly as I was. Here is what I get from the First Lady. She is very much the Chicago ideologue. Nancy Pelosi is the far left of the Democrat Party, right? Well, Michelle Obama might be to the left of Nancy Pelosi. She really doesn’t care for how things work in the country and she wants to see it all changed. I can respect that, though I would guess she is far too liberal even for me – and I consider myself a liberal Democrat.”

Finally, the Insider was asked what advice he would give Obama:

“Man, that’s a tough question right there. I have thought about it a lot lately. I know I’m not the only one who left that White House feeling really let down, but maybe that wasn’t fair to the President. Maybe our own expectations got so high that he had no choice but to let us down…some advice, huh? Hopefully without sounding disrespectful, I would tell the President to pull his head out of his ass. To man up, grow up, and start to pay attention to what the American people want and need. That is a big-big flaw with this president. He comes at it from the position of thinking he knows what we need because we don’t have the ability to know for ourselves. And he doesn’t respect any opinion that is different from his own. He just doesn’t care to know any other side to any given issue. I really believe it’s a maturity thing. I think our president needs to grow up. I hate to put it that way, but there it is. President Obama – grow up.”

So there you have it. Obama is lazy, arrogant and stupid. And Michelle is mean and so far Left she surpasses the Red Queen Pelosi. And remember – this assessment comes from someone who served inside the Obama White House.

Be afraid, America. Be very afraid.

Why should this "insider" be trusted? What's his name? Why does he no longer work in the White House? It's not that I don't believe you, but I want proof that the story is believable.

Several of the comments to the original story said basically the same thing. Anonymous sources are suspect. I would think it would be fairly easy to ferret out just who this person is for those in the know about White House dealings. There may be a follow-up. If so, I'll post it. Note that these comments are pretty much in line with the new Bob Woodward book that just came out, "Obama's Wars."

BTW, Tracer. I'm not asking to be "believed" here. I'm just passing on an interesting story. And we don't know you very well. Of course, you just got here so that's understandable. Do you have any insights to share?
