Former Aide on Obama: 'Stunning
that He’s in Politics, Because
He Really Doesn’t Like People

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 10/16/2012 10:37:27 AM

Neera Tanden, a former aide to both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, had this to say about the relationship of the two presidents: Clinton, being Clinton, had plenty of advice in mind and was desperate to impart it. But for the first two years of Obama’s term, the phone calls Clinton kept expecting rarely came. “People say the reason Obama wouldn’t call Clinton is because he doesn’t like him,” observes Tanden. “The truth is, Obama doesn’t call anyone, and he’s not close to almost anyone. It’s stunning that he’s in politics, because he really doesn’t like people.

From an online Medical Encyclopedia:

Antisocial personality disorder
(Sociopathic personality; Sociopathy; Personality disorder - antisocial)

Antisocial personality disorder is a mental health condition in which a person has a long-term pattern of manipulating, exploiting, or violating the rights of others. This behavior is often criminal.
Causes, incidence, and risk factors
The causes of antisocial personality disorder are unknown. Genetic factors and child abuse are believed to contribute to the development of this condition. People with an antisocial or alcoholic parent are at increased risk. Far more men than women are affected.

He may be in politics but certainly not in the traditional ways, or having risen by the traditional public paths.

Maybe it's a short step from notliking people to using your position to hurt them.

#3 – There may be little difference, but does he suffer from an antisocial personality disorder, or a narcissistic sociopath disorder? I believe that he is more narcissistic than antisocial, but definitely has antisocial issues.

This just proves that most people aren't paying attention, because to those of us who do pay attention it's obvious he holds most people in contempt. If you really listen to what he says, he truly isn't likable at all.

So a person goes into politics because they "like people?" Neera likes people? This from the head of the Center for American Progress, a liberal organization.

Therefore, I reckon Marx, Lenin, Stalin, and Mao liked people.

The pathological narcissist hates everybody and everything that is not himself because the mere existence of anything besides himself is an affront and a threat to his omnipotence. How DARE something exist that is not part of me and under my control! Obama doesn't just reject other people and their opinions, he actively despises them for existing at all.

Americans got their best glimpse into the heart of darkness that is Obamaworld in the amazing photo of Obama embracing a life sized replica of himself. Truly, a picture is worth a thousand words.

#19, not every successful politician "likes people" -- but almost every pol who is successful is also pretty good at faking that he likes people.

Take Bill Clinton, for example. Clinton is just as much a narcissist/sociopath as Obama; but he learned early in life to fake concern for other folks. "Ah feel yer pain."

Who was it ... the late George Burns, I believe, who said that "if you can fake sincerity, you've got it made"?

Obama differs from Bill Clinton in that he won't fake a sincere interest in others. He thinks he's just too damn good for that.

Good point, #14. The narcissist has an insatiable sense of entitlement. People are used and discarded (as in "thrown under the bus") without a second thought.

When caught, the narcissist simply continues on, acknowledging nothing and taking no responsibility anything.

Would have worked out fine, but his job title is slightly incorrect. Instead of being POTUS, he should be dictator (ya know, like Idi Amin), he would be fine with the job. As we have it now, we are still a first world country with a third world dictator in charge.

My wife is a patient of an ear/nose/throat MD. The guy encourages patients to call him Larry, or Dr. Larry. Presumably that's because it is a very high net worth area. Many patients have education equivilent (JD, etc) or patients household income over $10Million (inveswtment bankiing)

Just saying, obama was a fad, but he doesn't fit in with many, many Americans. Better in a third world country.

The Worst Wing- How the East Wing

New Republic, by Reid Cherlin    Original Article
Posted By: abuela10- 3/25/2014 9:13:32 AM     Post Reply
In the fall of 2010, the nasty midterms drawing to a close, Michelle Obama was contemplating her next move. Two years into her tenure as first lady, the breathless fixation on guest lists and china selections was subsiding into routine, and she wanted a plan for the rest of her husband’s time in office. Of course, her calendar would never lack for National Hostess duties—the obligatory social functions outlined in binders left by Laura Bush’s team. She had already launched Let’s Move!, the childhood obesity initiative, and Joining Forces, a program to help military families and veterans, was also in

ALBANY — New York, whose status as the most populous state has long been ceded, will soon fall behind Florida into fourth place, a long-anticipated drop that is rife with symbolism and that could carry potentially serious economic consequences in coming years. When the Census Bureau releases its latest population estimates on Monday, demographers expect that Florida and New York will be narrowly separated — perhaps by as little as a few thousand people — and that if Florida does not pass New York this time, it almost certainly will do so in 2014. The census figures underscore immigration trends, as foreign-born migrants continue to

The two tabloid editors at the centre of the phone hacking trial had a secret six-year affair at the end of which Rebekah Brooks wrote to Andy Coulson: “I love you ... You are my very best friend ... I tell you everything,” the Old Bailey heard. It is alleged that Mrs Brooks and Mr Coulson oversaw phone hacking and corruption at two of the country’s biggest newspapers. Details of the clandestine relationship were made public during the second day of their trial, where they are accused of overseeing a decade of illegal activity at The Sun and The News

The Oscar-winning film director Charles Ferguson has cancelled his CNN documentary on Hillary Clinton after what he described as a private campaign against the film by prominent Democrats. Ferguson said he had decided to pull the plug after being met with a wall of silence from more than a hundred people who refused to be interviewed for the documentary. He claimed that aides to the former secretary of state put pressure on CNN behind the scenes, and made clear that Clinton would only co-operate "over my dead body". He also blamed a public campaign by Republicans, who claimed the film would be

When Ted Sarandos put out the word that Netflix would begin producing original shows, he was swamped with story pitches that everyone else in Hollywood clearly had taken a pass on — including some scripts marked with coffee stains, smudged fingerprints and other telltale signs of rejection. That all changed in 2011 after Netflix bought the political thriller "House of Cards" from "The Social Network" and "Fight Club" director David Fincher.

It’s a Duck Nation, and we’re all just living in it. Last week, A&E Network’s reality show “Duck Dynasty” catapulted to become the biggest unscripted show in cable history with its fourth season premiere. With nearly 11.8 million viewers, the show about a Louisiana family that has made millions from its duck call fabrication business is on the brink of toppling “The Walking Dead.” If it does, it will become cable´s biggest show. The A&E Network, as Duck Commander patriarch Phil Robertson would say, is “Happy, happy, happy.” The show premiered in March 2012 and finished its first cycle with an average

"I´m not constructing a campaign around the approval of my peers. I´m constructing a campaign around the aspirations of my neighbors."

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it.

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
