And the mere fact that he even asks such things from "the folks" only goes to prove beyond any doubt that he is an amateur, and sullies the great office he was elected to.
If you have any doubt that Obama suffers from NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder) and has no right to hold public office where his first concern should be the public, and not himself, here is the clinical definition, with symptoms:
Narcissistic personality disorder is a personality disorder in which the individual is described as being excessively preoccupied with issues of personal adequacy, power, prestige and vanity. It was historically called megalomania
Symptoms of this disorder include:
Reacting to criticism with anger, shame, or humiliation - Obama constantly shows his thin skin, complaining and getting angry with anyone who disagrees with him
Taking advantage of others to reach their own goals - Asking newlyweds to contribute their wedding gifts to his campaign, or sell their stuff at a yard sale and contribute to his campaign
Exaggerating their own importance, achievements, and talents - his most often used word is "I" - he put it out there that HE killed Bin Laden, and originally "forgot" to give credit to those who actually did. At a fundraisers with NFL, he stated it is unusual for him to not get top billing. And his "autobiography" turns out to be fiction - exaggeration.
Imagining unrealistic fantasies of success, beauty, power, intelligence, or romance - his first days in office he told crowds in Cairo that HE was going to bring peace between Islam and the rest of the world. His numerous "Executive Orders" and his statements that Congress is not necessary - he'll just go around them - exudes fantasies of unbridled power. And he has said he is smarter than others around him so he doees not need to listen to them (including Intelligence Briefings)
Requiring constant attention and positive reinforcement from others - has there been even one day that his face has not adorned TV or the internet?
Being obsessed with oneself - again, his constant use of his favorite word - "I"
Setting goals that are unrealistic - he would close Gitmo immediately, would cut deficit in half in his first year, would bring world peace etc.
Wanting "the best" of everything - have you noticed his luxury vacations in the face of Americans sinking fast?
Appearing unemotional - liberals keep telling us how "cool and composed" he is.
Narcissistic? Undoubtedly. Amateur? No question. Should he be replaced? You decide that in November.
