Barack Obama has multiple personality flaws, but one stands out above all:
* Glibness/Superficial Charm
* Manipulative and Conning
* Grandiose Sense of Self
* Pathological Lying
* Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
* Shallow Emotions
* Callousness/Lack of Empathy
* Does not perceive that anything is wrong with them
* Unable to feel remorse or guilt
* Narcissism, grandiosity (self-importance not based on achievements)
Al Qaeda is on the run
Al Qaeda is decimated
ISIS is the JV
We leave behind a stable and sovereign Iraq
I didn’t set a red line, the world did
I got bad intel
The tide of war is receding
The world is less violent than it has ever been
None were true. This is not meant to be an inclusive list and it does not begin to touch the domestic lies. How can anyone of sane mind say these things?
Nothing is ever his fault. Ever. When he left to tee it up literally ten minutes after talking of the beheading of an American he blamed the “optics.” It wasn’t his fault, it was the way you perceived it.
Altogether too late, the legacy media is showing reluctant signs of recognizing the liar that Obama is. From ABC:
Barack Obama’s rating for strong leadership has dropped to a new low in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, hammered by criticism of his work on international crises and a stalled domestic agenda alike. With the midterm elections looming, Americans by a 10-point margin, 52-42 percent, see his presidency more as a failure than a success.
Just 38 percent now approve of Obama’s handling of international affairs, down 8 percentage points since July to a career low; 56 percent disapprove, a majority for the first time. Fifty-two percent say he’s been too cautious in dealing with Islamic insurgents in Iraq and Syria. And the public is ahead of Obama in support for a military response to that crisis, with 65 percent in favor of extending U.S. air strikes to Syria.
The NY Times can’t bring itself to use the word “liar” but this is probably as close as we’re going to see:
When President Obama addresses the nation on Wednesday to explain his plan to defeat Islamic extremists in Iraq and Syria, it is a fair bet he will not call them the “JV team.”
Nor does he seem likely to describe Iraq as “sovereign, stable and self-reliant” with a “representative government.” And presumably he will not assert after more than a decade of conflict that “the tide of war is receding.”
They go on:
“I don’t think it is just loose talk, I think it’s actually revealing talk,” said Peter H. Wehner, a former adviser to President George W. Bush now at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “Sometimes words are mistakes; they’re just poorly put. But sometimes they’re a manifestation of one’s deep belief in the world and that’s what you really get with President Obama.”
They see it, but can’t say it. He’s a liar.
“The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a JV team puts on Lakers uniforms, that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” Mr. Obama told Mr. Remnick. He drew a distinction between Al Qaeda and “jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.”
Asked about that by Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press” last weekend, Mr. Obama denied that he necessarily meant ISIS. “Keep in mind I wasn’t specifically referring to ISIL,” he said, using an alternate acronym for the group.
Thing is, he lies right to your face. Repeatedly. He lies to America. Everybody knows he’s lying and he persists in denial. Barack Obama thinks things are the way he says they are. He seems detached from reality. About the only honest thing he’s said in recent memory is that he has “no strategy” for dealing with ISIS and it was a stupid thing to say. The legacy media has been a miserable protector of America in its obsequiousness toward Obama.
Evan Thomas made me want to vomit with his blathering:
I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above above the world, he’s sort of God.
And to think that moron teaches journalism. The fawning. The sucking up. The obeisance.
The legacy media has been the very definition of “useful idiots.” They’re so invested in this nonsense that they are having a hard time finding their way out of the hole. If they’re not grossly embarrassed they sure ought to be.
The truth is punching the Times in the face, but won’t open it eyes:
To Mr. Obama’s critics, the disparity between the president’s previous statements and today’s reality reflects not simply poorly chosen words but a fundamentally misguided view of the world. Rather than clearly see the persistent dangers as the United States approaches the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, they said, Mr. Obama perpetually imagines a world as he wishes it were.
It is said that the neurotic builds castles in the sky and the psychotic lives in them. Barack Obama is not right in the head. Told you so.
