I believe that the first commentator to point out the evident narcissism of
The Obama was Charles Krauthammer, whose judgment in the matter I would respect in view of his being, among other things, a psychiatrist.
Narcisssus you will recall was the beautiful youth of Greek literature
who fell so much in love with his own reflection in a pool of water that he spent all of his time by the pool gazing at his reflection and eventually just pined away.
It seems obvious to me that the great success The Obama had in the election of 2008 was due not only to the organizational activities of Acorn, but also the way women reacted to his physical presence. He mesmerized them. Their swooning over him reminded me of the teeney boppers of the sixties and seventies and the adulation they heaped on The Beatles.
The Obama clearly was conscious of that adulation and as the campaign progressed it seemed to me that he fell more and more in love with himself. His whole manner of acting suggested a hyper-John Edwards.
I leave it to Charles Krauthammer and other psychiatrists to examine the implications of the narcissism of The Obama for the ultimate success or failure of his term in the White House and the ultimate success or failure of America under his leadership.
- Leo Rugiens
There are many things
that strike me as freakish and absurd
about Obama and his regime.
It is un-American for one—
or perhaps anti-American would be a better description.
There is nothing in Obama’s words and deeds that points to our founders
or to our traditions.
It is as if some foreigner, some invader,
had mounted a coup against our Republic
and was busy putting his own creatures in place throughout the government.
As Obama expands the government,
he also expands his own power base within the government.
These new creatures will be loyal to him and him alone.
In this Obama resembles nothing so much as a virus, an infection, a disease of the body politic. Without proper treatment the Republic will expire. The treatment might be painful and bloody in the extreme, but without it liberty will perish.
Another thing about this man is his willingness to lie. Indeed, his first reaction to anything is to issue a lie. His life is in fact awash in a tissue of lies, of deceit and fraud. The media follow him in the lies as they are wrapped up in them as well—though there is nothing new here. One can actually state with confidence than media deceit over the past 40 years has been paving the way for an Obama.
All is staged for effect. Obama uses the media to construct a house of mirrors all around. Everything, even his family, is a mere prop to the persona that he has confected for the public. This explains the teleprompter. All must be planned out, scripted, rehearsed. Obama acts as Maya, an illusion inside of illusions. His purpose is to veil reality and conceal the truth from the consciousness of the citizenry.
The man Obama is almost feline in his movements, a sleek panther rather than a brute dog. And what is more is that there is nothing particularly masculine about him. The traits that Americans have long associated with men—honor, strength, courage, friendship and nobility—have no place in this man.
Obama’s concept of the state is egocentric and self-referential. Obama sees no difference between himself and the state. Louis XIV claimed that he was the state though most of French public and private life was beyond the purview of the monarchy. Nothing could be less true in the Age of Obama. There can be no private sphere, no place where a man can go away from the interests and ministrations of Obama. All and everyone is to be subsumed into the mass, all those who are against this collectivism are to be punished and ostracized, made “Enemies of the State.”
The simple truth about this creature is that he revels in all the adulation heaped upon him by the media and his tens of millions of sycophants. Normal folks find this more than a little disturbing, this bizarre cult worship surrounding Obama. Obama himself feeds upon it and, more to the point, believes it.
Here we have arrived at the core of the man. It is not just that he is the state. It is that the state and religion have merged, become one thing, an entirety that has no reference outside of itself. There is—there can be—no “separation of church and state” because these are one and the same in the Obama regime. Thus his hatred of the God of Abraham and Christ. He is a competitor who must be destroyed.
A man like Obama sees himself as beyond good and evil. Indeed, these have undergone a shift in meaning, becoming whatever Obama says they are. You see this in the eyes of his true believers. Just to mention the slightest of criticisms of Obama is to bring upon your head pure and simple hatred. You are treated as a heretic who refuses to worship their god.
Allowed to fester and grow this disease will destroy this nation just as thoroughly as unchecked tuberculosis destroys a body.
Update: From Pope Benedict XVI.
Wherever politics tries to be redemptive, it is promising too much. Where it wishes to do the work of God, it becomes, not divine, but demonic.
From American Thinker.
Be not fooled, America. The movement, which appears most benign is instead the most malignant growth ever seen on our soil. It’s a cancer that will kill, and however slowly it grows or however nice it may look on the surface, doesn’t change a thing.
Demonic. Malignant. Two words that well sum up the usurper who sits in the White House. He resembles no American president, he resembles the Prince of the Air.

Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama
because he is not eligible to be President of the United States
because he is not a Natural Born Citizen
as required by Article Two, Section One, Clause Five
of the United States Constitution.
This is a fact regardless of
where he was born (Mombassa, Hawaii, Chicago, or Mars).
He is not a Natural Born Citizen
because he was not born of
BOTH OF WHOM WERE UNITED STATES CITIZENS
at the time of his birth.
His father was a subject/ciitizen
of Kenya/Great Britain at the time of his birth and afterwards.
His mother was too young to pass on her US citizenship
according to the law in effect when he was born.
Check it out:
His usurpation cannot be corrected by Congress,
it can only be corrected by his resignation, his removal
by an amendment to the Constitution
which will never happen.

AP- WASHINGTON D.C. - In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama's qualifications for the presidency, the group "Americans for Freedom of Information" has released copies of President Obama's college transcripts from Occidental College. Released today, the transcript indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate at the school. The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California. The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship. This document would seem to provide the smoking gun that many of Obama's detractors have been seeking.
The news has created a firestorm at the White House as the release casts increasing doubt about Obama's legitimacy and qualification to serve as president. When reached for comment in London, where he has been in meetings with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Obama smiled but refused comment on the issue. Meanwhile, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs scoffed at the report stating that this was obviously another attempt by a right-wing conservative group to discredit the president and undermine the administration's efforts to move the country in a new direction.
Britain's Daily Mail has also carried the story in a front-page article titled, "Obama Eligibility Questioned", leading some to speculate that the story may overshadow economic issues on Obama's first official visit to the U.K.
In a related matter, under growing pressure from several groups, Justice Antonin Scalia announced that the Supreme Court agreed on Tuesday to hear arguments concerning Obama's legal eligibility to serve as President in a case brought by Leo Donofrio of New Jersey. This lawsuit claims Obama's dual citizenship disqualified him from serving as president. Donofrio's case is just one of 18 suits brought by citizens demanding proof of Obama's citizenship or qualification to serve as president.
Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the results of their investigation of Obama's campaign spending. This study estimates that Obama has spent upwards of $950,000 in campaign funds in the past year with eleven law firms in 12 states for legal resources to block disclosure of any of his personal records. Mr. Kreep indicated that the investigation is still ongoing but that the final report will be provided to the U.S. attorney general, Eric Holder. Mr. Holder has refused to comment on the matter.
According to Associated Press story shown below, Obama's tramscripts from Occidential College show that he was an undergradraduate at the school under the name Barry Soetoro, and received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia. I did a search using "Smoking gun finally found."
Here are a few of the websites that came up. None said it was false.
