Of course Obama believes his own lies — he’s a narcissist

A lot of people are very surprised that Chuck Todd, after interviewing Obama, concluded that the President genuinely seems to believe his own lies:

You know, he does not believe he lied on this, and that’s the sense I get. I mean, I think that that’s, he’s taken issue with that before with folks off the record, and I got it’s a sensitive issue, felt like he did not sit there and say he intentionally lied. He said that he wanted to, he thought he was going to be able to keep this promise. I thought what was revealing in that answer, when I asked him that direct question about this, was this a political lie that you started to believe it, was he talked about well, you know, it turns out we had trouble in crafting the law.

John Nolte adds that, if this is the case, “that borders on pathological.”

Nolte is too kind.  It doesn’t “border” on pathological, it is pathological.  Pardon me if I quote myself:

More than five years ago, when Barack Obama threw his hat into the political ring, I realized that he was a malignant narcissist who lied compulsively.  For Obama, truth was then and is now defined by the needs of the moment.  If it will benefit him at that moment to say something at variance with facts as other people know them, he is telling the truth because his political needs are the ultimate yardstick by which all truth must be measured.

Narcissists believe in absolute truth.  Unlike others who believe in certain moral absolutes, though, the narcissist’s truth is not measured by God or philosophy or scientific rationality.  Instead, each narcissist is his own God head; he is the science and the proof; and his philosophy is made up by squaring the circle of his own little navel.

So of course Obama doesn’t believe he lied.  His acolytes (such as the New York Times) willingly buy into his doctrine.  That doesn’t mean, though, that the rest of us should worship so manifestly false a God.

    Doublethink already explained this phenomenon.
    The true power of the Left is not their money or politics, but in their mind control methods honed and refined over centuries. The power to not only own and maintain a slave, but to turn a perfectly good human raised by loving father and mother, into property, tools, livestock. They don’t get outside without permission.
    The concept of a war, a real war of annihilation, against the Left is still something people cannot imagine or think through.
    The Left, in order to create their utopia, will construct a Deus Ex Machina: a man made god. They will use all the religious death cult document in human existence, and exceed the brutality recorded in time’s trace, given enough of a lifespan.
    In computer programming, the hard drive of the LEft’s memory is constantly being scanned for certain patterns, and once detected those patterns are erased and replaced with the “officially justified” truths. However, that does mean the system, and the person, does in some fashion realize that they believed A was C, and that now they believe A was B. The very existence of the contradiction is being erased and replaced, but for it to be erased in the first place they must be Aware that It Exists.

    This post caused me to google up “narcissist paranoia”.  I found this guy with a string of videos discussing narcissism.  They are pretty good.  Obama fits his description.  But so does most of the Left.   
    Interesting, the way to cope is to reflect the narcissist’s abuse.  Push them with abandonment or threats of abandonment.  Feed their paranoia to cause them to amplify the abandonment fears.  Confront them, not try to reason with them.  Ignore them.

      Everyone should be required to read and learn his book in high school. And college. And near the age of 30 (maybe to maintain a license?) The world could be saved from a lot of pain, trouble, abuse and Hitler-like people. My kids KNOW this book.

    Those who have a favorite attack, often have no defense against it precisely because they have put so much confidence in it working.

    I’ve reached a point where I just don’t care why Obama does something. Regardless of his personal motivations/mental health/self-awareness, he has consistently lied to get his way, and his way seems to be destroying the country as we know it. And it looks like no one will just call him on it or try to stop him.

    Libby, people have and continue to call him on these endless lies. Unfortunately for us, these voices are immediately drowned out by the MSM and statists in our government. On the GOP side like McCain and Christie, are also our enemies.  The main danger of Obama presidency is not Obama, but it is the people who elected him and those who continue to prop him up.

    Evil cannot be stopped by weak convictions, weak resolve, and elections. Those who are motivated just enough to choose between vanilla and chocolate, will never have what it takes to defeat the Darkness.

    You have your lying liars, and then you also have the enablers who enable them.  They are the Occupy 51%.

    You obviously don’t know a lot about narcissists. They DO NOT believe their lies. If they did, their lies would be consistent. But they back peddle and side-step and even admit their lies (It’s REALLY easy to get them to admit their lies). They do know they’re lying. If they did not, they wouldn’t qualify as a narcissist.
