Paging any psychiatry students: Obama puts on a clinic on Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
Obama’s interview by Steve Kroft on last night’s edition of CBS’ “60 Minutes” was a bizarre descent into the mind of a delusional narcissist, apparently impervious to reality. Here are some highlights:
Regarding ISIS, after Kroft reminded him that things have gotten a lot worse in Syria, and that he had promised to “degrade and eventually destroy” them, answer to the question “They’re still occupying a good chunk of Syria. Who’s going to get rid of them?” the One replied ” Over time, the community of nations will all get rid of them.” Oh OK. 1-800 not your problem?
How about that stunning failure to try to train the “moderate Syrian opposition,” the $500 million program that ended up training 5? Turns out our Dear Reader never thought it would work, or at least he was “skeptical from the get go” that it would. Seriously? Yes. When asked why he went through with the program if he was skeptical, he replied “Well, because part of what we have to do here, Steve, is to try different things.” Sure, why not? What’s $500 million here and there to “try” things? Hey, here’s an idea. Let’s send a band of scary killer clowns over there to wipe out ISIS, or killer robots. Even Steve Kroft said “It’s an embarrassment.” Bingo!
In response to Kroft saying that Putin is challenging America and Obama’s leadership, he said “My definition of leadership would be leading on climate change, an international accord that potentially we’ll get in Paris. My definition of leadership is mobilizing the entire world community to make sure that Iran doesn’t get a nuclear weapon.” Except that your plan, Genius, is facilitating Iran’s joining the nuclear club, not stopping them. The most charitable interpretation of Iran plan is that it is delaying it, but if you were honest, you would say that making sure Iran becomes a regional power was your plan all along. And climate change? Are you trying to set off an unstoppable international laughing fit? Putin has been laughing his ass off over your ridiculous policies for years, now this?
On Hillary’s private email server: “I don’t think it posed a national security problem.” MMM… I wonder if he knows about the news that dropped Friday, which we discussed on The Teri O’Brien Show yesterday, about Hillary outing a human CIA asset over insecure email. He also refused to comment on whether or not it’s a “big deal,” even when reminded that his administration had prosecuted people for having classified material on their private servers.
Here’s the best part: He said if he ran for a third term, he would win. I’d like to say that that statement was the most delusional statement of all, but given the obvious fraud in the 2012 election in places like Ohio, and the democrats’ diligent “remaking of America” efforts through lawless amnesty, importation of refugees and the expansion of “motor voter” that we discussed on yesterday’s edition of The Teri O’Brien Show, sadly, he could be right.
