So, what we long suspected is true: our president is a kind of political idiot savant whose special skill, if any, unfortunately has nothing to do with governing.
One of the motifs that runs throughout the book is Barack Obama's sheer level of incompetency. He has the fatal conceit of many politicians: an overweening ego. That may be a prerequisite for politicians and leaders, but when it is unleavened by a willingness to consider the views of others, it becomes a fatal conceit. And Obama has that trait in abundance.Anybody else thinking Dunning-Kruger effect? And talk about ingratitude:
Even Oprah Winfrey has been stiff-armed by the Obamas. According to the book, Oprah took a big risk in supporting Obama in 2008 and campaigning for Obama in Iowa, being a big boost in his campaign. The ratings for her show weakened significantly (and her new network has been a huge disappointment). But when she has tried to visit the White House, she has been all but treated as persona non grata. Apparently, Michelle Obama is a possessive person who fears the influence Oprah may have over Barack Obama (more on this below). Oprah blames it on Michelle's anti-obesity campaign. She is quoted as saying, "Michelle hates fat people and doesn't want me waddling around the White House."So, let’s think about all of this. Obama seems to possess many, if not most, of the following characteristics:
not learning from experience
no sense of responsibility
inability to form meaningful relationships
inability to control impulses
lack of moral sense
chronically antisocial behavior
no change in behavior after punishment
lack of guilt
Well, it’s probably just a coincidence, but that list happens to constitute the basic definition of a sociopath.
On the other hand, maybe it’s not a coincidence. I think we need to get rid of this guy before he kills us.
