Is President Obama a Dangerous Narcissist?

It is not for me to criticise another country’s Head of State. But President Obama is scary. I think America should be afraid, very afraid. So should the world. Where goes America so goes the rest of the world.

Is President Obama a dangerous narcsissist?

President Obama is on a spending spree the likes Does Obama have Narcissistic Personality Disorder? of which the world has never seen. He’s doing it all by himself without inviting the rest of the world to help.

They are notably quiet through all of this. Not one leader has spoken up about the danger of such massive spending.

They are hoping it will bail them out too I suspect.

In my view this is shear folly. The trillions of dollars involved are staggering.

Capital has a way of disappearing if it is not put to work adding value. Witness the US banking system which is a financial black hole sucking US taxpayer money into it to disappear for ever.

“It’s all about the economy dummy” should be foremost in his mind. But that is a side show for Obama.

His plan is to spend trillions of dollars on energy, health, education, infrastructure. The problem is all that money is either going to have to be borrowed or printed.

If it is borrowed then America may pay a high interest for that money from countries already overloaded with US debt.

If he prints it those already holding US debt may sell out to avoid the ravages of hyperinflation.

In less than one month in office using the threat of catastrophe he has managed to push through trillion dollar bills through congress.

The problem is he shows not the least bit of fear spending such unimaginably large sums of money when America doesn’t have it to spend. Budget means managing the best you can with what you have – kitchen table econ 101. Obama has assumed his budget is unlimited.

Here is an extract from a post on a blog written in August 2007 called, “Barack Obama, narcissist?

“Here are the DSM-IV criteria for Narcissistic Personality Disorder (five or more listed below in order to make the diagnosis):

  1. Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements);
  2. Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love;
  3. Believes that he of she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions);
  4. Requires excessive admiration;
  5. Has a sense of entitlement , i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations;
  6. Is interpersonally exploitative, ie., takes advantage;
  7. Lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with feelings and needs of others;
  8. Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her;
  9. Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes

While most (if not all) politicians exhibit some or many of these characteristics to one degree or another, one has to meet at least five of these criteria for the diagnosis. I’ll let people decide for themselves. In my humble but professional opinion (clinical psychologist), my observations confirm to me that he clearly meets five and most likely more of the above criteria. I have never given a diagnostic opinion for anyone without evaluating them personally, so I am reluctant to make this decision. However, as a psychologist may be employed as an expert profiler, this is my firm diagnostic impression. I’m interested in what others may think, keeping in mind their training and experience.”

Here’s a video, “Does Obama have Narcissistic Personality Disorder?” from Dr Ali Sina who has a website called with a professed aim to,

“We aim to promote human rights and democracy among Muslims. We oppose Islam, not Muslims. We are against hate, not faith.”

One final blog article, “The Narcissistic Qualities Of Barack Obama” might be worth a look. It covers his march to the White house and includes comments from many prominent and public people.

You decide if Obama is a Narcissist and if so is the world in real danger? I’m just putting it out there as I believe what Obama does will affect your retirement for years to come.

Even if you are an Obama supported investigate these sites and then look for opposing views. In the same way you should not accept financial hype as a given, you should not accept Presidential hype as a given either. Otherwise you will fall victim to them.

I do believe Obama’s “War on Wall Street” will stifle economic growth for some time to come. But the pendulum swings both ways eventually and prosperity will return.

In the meantime make up your own mind. Make sure you protect your nest egg as best you can in case President Obama’s grandiose plans don’t work out.

You must watch this if nothing else. Rick Santelli – “Rant of the Year” – a Plea for Sanity – Tea Parties are beginning.

  1. I would only disagree in that Obama has sent Hillary Clinton to China to beg them to continue financing America’s debt. Scary, indeed.

    Thank you for taking the time to comment. A quick visit to your excellent blog shows me you have been very busy posting content today.

    I agree from what I have read Hillary was on a mission to ask China to buy more of the US Debt. It seems she was successful or Obama probably would not have announced all that spending – I hope 😉

    In some ways it might be good though if China made the US take its medicine and learn to pay its way. However the pain may be too much right now.

    Mind you even Australia is on a spending spree.
