Too Cool to Care: Could Obama´s
Privileged and Pot-filled Adolescence
Explain his Presidential Lassitude?

American Thinker, by James W. Lucas

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 9/5/2014 6:54:27 AM

Barack Obama stands apart from other modern American Presidents in many ways. (snip)the widespread view that he is the coolest President ever. This supernal coolness is not new. In his autobiography, Dreams From My Father, the President wrote that in his teenage years “I tried my best to be cool at all times” (p. 82). However, leaving aside the contradiction inherent in trying to be cool, it is possible that Barack Obama’s teenage experiences may have left him psychologically, and perhaps even neurologically, incapable of performing fundamental tasks of his current position. Much of the appeal of coolness is its

FTA: Yet everything is not working out perfectly for our President.

I disagree. Obama is achieving exactly what he set out to do: (in no particular order) create chaos; promote racial tensions; wreck economy; nationalize healthcare. Did I forget anything?

When you consider his goals, he was the perfect person for the job. Whatever he is doing -- golfing, vacationing, fund-raising -- his agenda is being carried out by like-minded people.

It´s not just his adolescence that is pot-filled, or coke-filled if you watch his current behavior, his halting speech and his dead eyes. His brain is usually not engaged to his mouth these days but that could be a good thing.

You did not mention his Communist alcoholic mentor Frank Marshall Davis who was his grandfather´s friend. Frank introduced him to Communism and taught him well. Frank was from Chicago and had many connections there. Also, you called Hillary a lady. She is not a lady. Other than those two slips, this is a great article.

The article is correct without changing the theory that he intends and welcomes the destruction he is causing. It is much easier to destroy than to build up and Obama can manage the destruction without concentrating or working at it just by blindly applying his ideology. I cannot think of a single case where he has learned that his ideology does not work. There is little or no prospect of that ever happening.

Absolutely right #1. Obama´s agenda is being carried out by like minded people and they are committed to his agenda just as much, if not more, than he is. They would run roughshod over Biden too. He would be managed. Washington is filled with Obama ideologues, and it is going to take a gargantuan effort pry them from the halls of government. Just think Lois Lerner times thousands. We must restore integrity to government. It is time to stop the inmates from running the asylum.

I don´t believe it was the pot that is the problem today. It is Obama´s willingness to believe the Marxist ideology that skewed his thinking. He identified with it. He embraced it. He is living it. Being brainwashed from the cradle is effective. Obama is not a curious person. He went with the radical agenda because was easy and it spoke to him. He is a walking cliché full of radical ideas, always angry and needing to get even. Ever the victim but always feeling he is entitled to whatever his heart desires.

Most of us think that adolescence never ended.

Did anyone read the accounts of his attending Harvard Law Review meetings and just sitting there, supposedly soaking it all up, but never asking a question and never contributing anything? Have we forgotten his almost always voting "Present" in the Illinois state senate? And the fact that his patron in that senate took bills that had been slaved over by others and handed them to Obie at the very last minute so that their passage would be credited to him? And "Present" continued in the U. S. Senate.

He is a lazy bugger. He is a disciple of Saul Alinsky. The community organizer MO guides him. But even Saul Alinsky was said to have had no plan for governing, for running anything, once he had that power. For running what he had disrupted so totally with his "revolution". These guys wreak havoc. Chaos. But haven´t the foggiest notion how a country like the United States should operate. This is not the USSR.

Ivory tower ideologues should not be running countries.

This is chicken egg. Which came first? Obama´s aberrant behavior - narcissist, sociopath, etc - or his drug use which heightened it?

Frankly, who cares? BHO is a disaster and his beliefs, values and mission has damaged America both domestically and internationally.

The big question is what leader can step in and turn this around?

Remember too, even if BHO willingly vacates the WH, all of his cockroaches are still embedded in Wash DC.

The ONLY solution is to fire everyone associated with the Federal Government and then rehire new employees based on qualifications.

This will never happen. So we are going to be dealing with these vermin for a long time. This battle is far from over.

...his inattention to details of governing; his disengagement from the political process and from the public; [emphasis mine]

When an employe or an elected official distances himself or herself from his job requirements, he is considered incompetent or ineffective, and is usually fired.

He is dangerously ineffective where it matters -- keeping America safe at home and abroad, keeping our economy perking along and our workers working, making things better for all Americans. He should be fired for not doing what he was hired to do.

The Economist reports that “he seems bored by the daily tasks of governing and reluctant to question those who work for him.”

No. He isn´t "bored". He is lazy. Let that "too smart to be challenged by the job" excuse be forever relegated to the same place where resides "If you like your doctor" and "Al Queda is on the run" and "I don´t have a strategy", bloopers for the ages.

But, once you get beyond areas where gratification is near at hand, Barack Obama starts to flag, as noted by the many observers quoted above and numerous others.

...which means that even his short-term ability to focus applies only to himself, not to others. If the focus shifts to other people, especially strong ones, he isn´t interested.

A clinician would not want to make a definitive diagnosis without a neurological work-up and more firsthand information on the quantity and potency of the President’s pot.

One doesn´t need a "neurological workup" and more "first-hand information" to see that Obama is damaged. All the things which bring him pleasure are short-term instant gratification events where he is the center of adulation, whether from his daughters, his Staff, the media, or uninformed cheering crowds.

He cannot do that which is "other-directed". It´s all about him and that makes him dangerous.

Recent results of a 25 year long study of over a thousand New Zealand subjects revealed that heavy pot use in your teenage years leads to irreversible reductions in I.Q., "neurophysical decline," memory problems, earlier onset of mental illnesses, and a whole raft of other psychological problems.

One would think that the more intelligent Democrats (there are intelligent Democrats, just misguided) would start doubting themselves and their ability to judge people. They should be questioning themselves why they were so wrong and how they could be so fooled. It has to be a bitter pill for them to have their chosen leader an utter failure both home and abroad.

Next time they should just sit home and let clear-thinking and discerning Republicans choose our President!

Yes, it does explain his limited brain. I would also argue that he is still using the same drugs. He needs escape because this joker cannot deal with reality. Everything about hims is hidden or invented. He is an employee of the US Citizens, something he is not aware of. As an employee of a company this drug user would long have been fired. But no, the dumbest amongst us gave this amateur a second term, just to make sure that the entire world, just in case they missed it, can witness what a fool occasionally passes through the Oval Office!

#6, I´m acquainted with quite a few of those "intelligent democrats" and every last one of them looked no further than the melanin content of Smidgen´s skin and the fact that he had a D after his name. Not one of them looked into his background and all were shocked when I pointed out that he was a coke head. They´re pretty quiet these days except for one who still has the 2008 Obama/Biden sticker on her car.

I have to wonder what will become of BO after the presidency. He has become addicted to the adulation and power. Neither side of the political isle is going to be interested in him after 2016, even the liberals are going to find him toxic. If Republicans get in charge and the economy recovers and other problems that he couldn´t seem to get fixed get dealt with, his incompetence will be amplified.

Will he disappear into a cloud of smoke, too cool to exist in the mundane world anymore?

To understand Obama (and most politicians), one must understand narcissism. These people never mature beyond their teenage years. The world revolves around them. They crave narcissistic feed. This is usually attention, power or money. They have no empathy.

Politics is a natural place for such individuals. Most politicians are narcissists or psychopaths. Even city council members or condo association members.

I suspect he still uses, sometimes heavily. Remember the thwarted hijacking while Barry was on vacation in Hawaii several years ago? The media waited hours for him to come out and make an official statement. No explanation for the wait was offered. Were his aides scrambling behind the scenes because he was too high to go before the cameras?

I didn´t need some extensive article to tell me what I already observed and knew.
Obama is a low IQ idiot pot head surrounded with a cabal of misfits like himself. There are no political experts advising the lazy self centered creepy dude. This nation is adrift and we are on our own while Washington is awash with thieves and thugs.
I, for one, does not believe he is smart and a great speaker. Obama´s drone and whistling delivery is annoying and he can read better than the average Chicago street thug. It ends right there.
The people of the United States were duped and when the truth is known years from now we will become mad and embarrassed for what others had done by electing him twice. I didn´t do it, I can assure you, because I knew he was a low IQ fraud in 2007.

Almost all the information given in this article has been floating around in bits and wisps since Obama first became a candidate. What makes this article so devastating is the point by point coverage and analysis of Obama´s weaknesses and their causes.

Taken all together, this article paints a horrific portrait of our own Dorian Gray. If only we could lock him in the attic.

Years ago, I did intake for a facility for the homeless mentally ill. I had twenty minutes to come up with a diagnosis and an admit/no admit decision. Part of the intake was taking a drug usage history. I learned that just listening to the patient and thinking "what age does this person sound like?" would tell me when drug use started. Did the person sound like a fourteen year old? Bingo! He started using at fourteen. I´m guessing we have someone arrested at early adolescence in the WH.

# 26 The explanation for Barry being unaware that a US jet was attacked by a terrorist ..for at least 3 hours... would be hilarious , if not so bizarre and troubling.
First the official White House response via Politico .
" White House spokesman Bill Burton said Friday , that Obama
on vacation in Hawaii, was informed of the incident three hours after the plane landed .
Obama then held a conference call with Homeland Security and counter-terror adviser John Brennan and NSC chief of staff Dennis McDonough. Burton said that in a subsequent call, Obama " instructed that all appropriate measures be taken to increase security for air travel."

Obama was not informed or couldn´t be found or roused for 3 hours after Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab tried to blow up Northwest Airlines flight 253 on approach to Detroit with 300 souls on board.
When " informed " Barry did not immediately order increased security measures. It took subsequent phone calls for Barry to figure that out.
Here´s the official NYT explanation for this grotesque lapse in national security .
January 4, 2010 " Obama´s War Over Terror " by Peter Baker
( I promise I am not making this up ) 73 paragraphs in Baker gives this explanation for the CINC not knowing about a domestic terror attack...for hours.
" Obama was singing Christmas carols with his family at a rented house in Hawaii when a military aide arrived to tell him that someone tried to blow up a plane over Detroit ".
In Dreams from My Father Barry admitted on page 120 that he was still " getting high " as an adult , so the drug use continued past his teen years.
No one knows if Barry has ever stopped doing drugs because the media refuses to ask, too busy spinning fairy tales about Obama singing Christmas carols while Muslim terrorists attack us.

Doesn’t anyone in the White House bother to think about the metaphors they use? In the wake of the awful, disgusting, hideous, XXX rated (for violence) video of David Haines being beheaded, carving his head off his shoulders, Barack Obama releases a statement with the most inappropriate metaphor possible: The United States stands shoulder to shoulder tonight with our close friend and ally in grief and resolve. Are they trying to be funny? Is there some demon inside the Obamas that is making them do things like commemorate 911 this year by sending Michelle to be photographed with a group named KaBOOM?

Nations are much like living organisms. One fundamental function of life is to tell the difference between friends and foes. When a nation fails to do that it will soon die. For more than two centuries the United States has known how to tell friend from foe, because we’ve had a robust sense of identity -- we understood how “a nation conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal” would be tested over and over again, by enemies foreign and domestic, to see “whether any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure.” The West

The Ivanpah solar generating plant is located in California about 50 miles from Las Vegas near the California-Nevada border. 173,000 mirrors are used to concentrate the sun on 3 boiler-towers where water is turned into steam to drive turbines and generate electricity. The mirrors track the sun and concentrate sunlight so that the intensity of light falling on the boiler-towers is about 500 times stronger than sunlight -- a death ray. If a person were to be illuminated by this death ray, 3rd degree burns would follow within a few seconds. Insects that wander into the kill zone are quickly

A horrific machete attack by an illegal alien gang on two innocent young men waiting on a platform for a Chicago El train has been caught on surveillance camera, and is making big news in Chicago. Chicago is, of course, a sanctuary city for illegal aliens under the policies of Democratic Mayor Rahm Emanuel. (snip) How’s that sanctuary city status working out for ya’, Rahm?

Nothing is more obnoxious than calling someone a liar just because they disagree with you. Unless of course, it is true.

The latest case happened Saturday night in the Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa. (snip)The Mayor said “several” people had a brawl. An “isolated” case of violence.

Remember when Barack Obama was going through his “sort of god” phase in the media? Back then before he had a presidential track record, he was frequently pictured in the media with a halo.How times (and staff work) have changed! Last night’s speech clearly showed President Obama with horns protruding from his head. The staff that once upon a time posed him in front of Styrofoam columns managed to pull a Gingrich on him. Talk about losing your mojo!

The Democrats´ (and Media´s) Obama Problem

The Democratic Party and the mainstream media joined to run interference for Barack Obama when he became a national figure. Obama was painted as a charismatic, competent, new kind of politician. The passage of time destroyed this image. Now, the public increasingly sees Obama as incompetent, untrustworthy and unmotivated. Supporters are now in an awkward position. Do they continue to support what is increasingly seen as an inept president or do they turn against him? Continuing the subterfuge is dangerous. Lending credibility to an incredible man is a certain way to destroy one’s own validity. Obama, once considered a savior and asset

If we should be attacked by terrorists who come across our unprotected, undefended southern border, and should Americans die in any such attack, we would do well to understand for what those lives were lost. They would have been spent for the ability of illegal aliens to cast illegal votes for politicians doing illegal things. While both parties are to some degree to blame for the porousness of our southern border, the party that has the singular ability to solve the problem via the levers of government, the Democrats, is ensuring that the problem becomes so pervasive and vast that

President Barack Obama has declined to attend a dedication ceremony in October for a new memorial honoring American veterans who have been disabled fighting for their country in wars, according to sources close to the event. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM), the first such memorial of its kind, is set to be dedicated during a ceremony on Oct. 5 near the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C. However, Obama, who was first invited to attend the event in January, will not be among those in attendance, according to a source who is familiar with the situation. This

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said comparing Republican treatment of President Obama to how Democrats handled President George W. Bush is a false equivalence and that Democrats don’t bear culpability for the comparatively fewer number of bills being passed by Congress and signed into law. “Let me just say that any of this equivalence, both sides, this or that, no — we never treated President Bush the way they treat President Obama,” she said Monday on MSNBC. “It’s no use whining about it; we just have to get people out to vote” and make people aware there’s an election this

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton. Here are a few of the findings: Magazines such as Good Housekeeping and

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Cat Stevens - also known as Yusuf Islam - is to perform a series of dates in the US for the first time since 1976. The musician, who converted to Islam in 1977 and put his career on hold, will play six concerts in December. The 66-year-old, who was inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year, is now known by his original stage name and Yusuf. He is best known for his 1971 recording of Christian hymn Morning Has Broken, a top 10 hit in both the UK and US. Stevens had a number of other hits during

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort. The administration is simultaneously stepping up diplomatic efforts to

Washington - The current threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, will test not only the resolve and strategic judgment of America and its allies, but also our nation’s fidelity to a basic constitutional principle. Our Constitution reserves to Congress the power to declare war and designates our president as the commander in chief, but our recent history has been characterized by executive overreach and legislative abdication in the initiation of military action. The current crisis gives us an opportunity to restore the proper balance between the branches. America’s history since 2001 should compel us to fix the way

[Snip] ´A general from U.S. Army Africa, the Army component of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), will lead this effort, which will involve an estimated 3,000 U.S. forces.´ Liberia is the hardest-hit of the four west African nations that have confirmed Ebola cases, accounting for more than one-half of the fatalities.

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us. My own experience with marijuana was somewhat similar
