Obama evidences symptoms of pathological narcissism, which is different from the run-of-the-mill narcissism of a Richard Nixon or a Bill Clinton for example. To him reality and fantasy are intertwined. This is a mental health issue, not just a character flaw. Pathological narcissists are dangerous because they look normal and even intelligent. It is this disguise that makes them treacherous.


This deserves optimal dissemination.....

 
Verified by Snopes and also  Truth or Fiction

 Dr. Sam Vaknin is an Israeli psychologist.  Interesting view on our new president.

Dr.. Vaknin has written extensively about narcissism.


Dr. Vaknin States "I must confess I was impressed by Sen.Barack Obama from the first time I saw him.  At first I was excited to see a black candidate.  He looked youthful, spoke well, appeared to be confident - a wholesome presidential package.  I was put off soon, not just because of his shallowness but also because there was an air of haughtiness in his demeanor that was unsettling.  His posture and his body language were louder than his empty words. Obama's speeches are unlike any political speech we have heard in American history.  Never a politician in this land had such quasi "religious" impact on so many people.  The fact that Obama is a total incognito with zero accomplishment, makes this inexplicable infatuation alarming. Obama is not an ordinary man.  He is not a genius.  In fact he is quite ignorant on most important subjects."


Barack Obama is a narcissist.
 
Dr. Sam Vaknin, the author of the Malignant Self Love believes  "Barack Obama appears to be a narcissist."  Vaknin is a world authority on narcissism.  He understands narcissism and describes the inner mind of a narcissist like no other person.  When he talks about narcissism everyone listens.  Vaknin says that Obama's language, posture and demeanor, and the testimonies of his closest, dearest and nearest suggest that the Senator is either a narcissist or he may have narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).  Narcissists project a grandiose but false image of themselves.  Jim Jones, the charismatic leader of People's Temple, the man who led over 900 of his followers to cheerfully commit mass suicide and even murder their own children was also a narcissist.  David Koresh, Charles Manson, Joseph Koni, Shoko Asahara, Stalin, Saddam, Mao,Kim Jong Ill and Adolph Hitler are a few examples of narcissists of our time.  All these men had a tremendous influence over their fanciers.  They created a personality cult around themselves and with their blazing speeches elevated their admirers, filled their hearts with enthusiasm and instilled in their minds a new zest for life.  They gave them hope!  They promised them the moon, but alas, invariably they brought them to their doom.  When you are a victim of a cult of personality, you don't know it until it is too late.  One determining factor in the development of NPD is childhood abuse.
 
"Obama's early life was decidedly chaotic and replete with traumatic and mentally bruising dislocations," says Vaknin.  "Mixed-race marriages were even less common then.  His parents went through a divorce when he was an infant (two years old).   Obama saw his father only once again, before he died in a car accident.   Then his mother re-married and Obama had to relocate to Indonesia, a foreign land with a radically foreign culture, to be raised by a step-father.  At the age of ten, he was whisked off to live with his maternal (white)grandparents.   He saw his mother only intermittently in the following few years and then she vanished from his life in 1979.  She died of cancer in 1995".

 One must never underestimate the manipulative genius of pathological narcissists.  They project such an imposing  personality that it overwhelms those around them.  Charmed by the charisma of the narcissist, people become like clay in his hands.   They cheerfully do his bidding and delight to be at his service.   The narcissist shapes the world around himself and reduces others in his own inverted image.  He creates a cult of personality.  His admirers become his co-dependents  Narcissists have no interest in things that do not help them to reach their personal objective.   They are focused on one thing alone and that is power.   All other issues are meaningless to them and they do not want to waste their precious time on trivialities.  Anything that does not help them is beneath them and do not deserve their attention.

 If an issue raised in the Senate does not help Obama in one way or another, he has no interest in it.   The "present" vote is a safe vote.  No one can criticize him if things go wrong.  Those issues are unworthy by their very nature because they are not about him.  Obama's election as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review led to  a contract and advance to write a book about race relations.
 
The University of Chicago Law School provided him a lot longer than expected and at the end it evolved into, guess what?   His own autobiography!   Instead of writing a scholarly paper focusing on race relations, for which he had been paid, Obama could not resist writing about his most sublime self.  He entitled the book Dreams from My Father.

 Not surprisingly, Adolph Hitler also wrote his own autobiography when he was still nobody.  So did Stalin.   For a narcissist no subject is as important as his own self.   Why would he waste his precious time and genius writing about insignificant things when he can write about such an august being as himself?  Narcissists are often callous and even ruthless.   As the norm, they lack conscience.  This is evident from Obama's lack of interest in his own brother who lives on only one dollar per month.
 
A man who lives in luxury, who takes a private jet to vacation in Hawaii, and who has raised nearly half a billion dollars for his campaign (something unprecedented in history) has no interest in the plight of his own brother.  Why?  Because, his brother cannot be used for his ascent to power.

 A narcissist cares for no one but himself.  This election is like no other in the history of America. The issues are insignificant compared to what is at stake.  What can be more dangerous than having a man bereft of conscience, a serial liar, and one who cannot distinguish his fantasies from reality as the leader of the free world?  I hate to sound alarmist, but one is a fool if one is not alarmed. Many politicians are narcissists.  They pose no threat to others...They are simply self serving and selfish.

 Obama evidences symptoms of pathological narcissism, which is different from the run-of-the-mill narcissism of a Richard Nixon or a Bill Clinton for example.  To him reality and fantasy are intertwined.  This is a mental health issue, not just a character flaw.  Pathological narcissists are dangerous because they look normal and even intelligent.  It is this disguise that makes them treacherous.

Today the Democrats have placed all their hopes in Obama.   But this man could put an end to their party.   The great majority of blacks have also decided to vote for Obama.   Only a fool does not know that their support for him is racially driven.   This is racism, pure and simple.   The downside of this is that if Obama turns out to be the disaster I predict, he will cause widespread resentment among the whites.

 The blacks are unlikely to give up their support   of their man.  Cultic mentality is pernicious and unrelenting.  They will dig their heads deeper in the sand and blame Obama's detractors of racism. This will cause a backlash among the whites.

The white supremacists will take advantage of   the discontent and they will receive widespread support.   I predict that in less than four years, racial tensions will incr ease to levels never seen since the turbulent 1960's.

Obama will set the clock back decades... America is the bastion of freedom.  The peace of the world depends on the strength of America, and its weakness translates into the triumph of terrorism and victory of rogue nations.

It is no wonder that Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez, the Castrists, the Hezbollah, the Hamas, the lawyers of the Guantanamo terrorists and virtually all sworn enemies of America are so thrilled by the prospect of their man in the White House. America is on the verge of destruction.  There is no insanity greater than electing a pathological narcissist as president.

Why do you copy & paste an old, poisonous article written by Ali Sina in September 2008? Do you even know who Ali Sina is, where he comes from and what his beliefs are?

Here is the link from Snopes.com you referred to:

http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/vaknin.asp

The first thing you see on this page is a reprint of the malicious chain e-mail (NOT written by Dr. Sam Vaknin) that was circulated beginning February 2009. Make sure you scroll to the bottom of the page to get the facts from Snopes.com about this.

Boy that's explains a lot doesn't it. But Ive seen and known too many great Americans like Connie Rice, Colin Powell, Alan Keyes, the many medal of honor winners, and the many brave Americans I served my country with, to judge a person based on race. I learned long ago to judge people by what they are and what they believe in and stand for, rather then what they look like, Those who put him in office made their judgment based solely on race, rather than who and what is. Regardless of where he was born, this man has clearly demonstrated that he is not an America, and does not believe in America or it s principles. Now he is destroying our country to rebuilt it in his personal image of what a perfect country should be. That my friends is a country that will obey and worship him because he beleives he is so much smarter and more important than the rest of us. So I am afraid the good doctor is right about who we put in the white house. I only hope and pray that America will survive and learn from this mistake, and that we are strong enough to prove the good doctor wrong about the future and destiny of our country,.

Well, what can I say? always I have liked that the one speaking to me looks me in the eye. Not a owl like, just a sincere look in my face now and then as he/she addresses the people in front.
Criticism? Hardly, I have seen a few of the President's speeches and always he insist on looking first right, then left, then right again, never stopping in the middle where I am!!! And that finger, a finger made to pick ones nose shouldn't be waved around like a I-will-tell-you-soooo...attention folks!.
As a cynical old hand, I never trusted no politician promising me a fat lunch for free.
