Narcissism – Thy name is Obama

Category: Obama,terrorismamuzikman @ 10:14 pm

Osama Bin Laden is dead.  And If we are to believe the Narcissist-In-Chief he is the one responsible.  What shamelessness!

And so shortly after taking office, I directed Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA, to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority of our war against al Qaeda, even as we continued our broader efforts to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat his network.

Seriously, not a word about the efforts conducted by your predecessor, Mr NOTUS?  You came up with this nutty idea all by yourself?
It should be noted that no less than a dozen times our NOTUS referenced himself in his remarks this evening.
Is this about you, Obama?  Is this about scoring some sorely needed political points?
Or is this about justice, victory for The United Sates of America, and maybe a little closure for the 9/11 families?

    Power Line – Osama bin gone: Stephen Hunter comments


    Any joy one might feel in the intelligence of our analysts and the bravery of our door kickers was significantly diminished by Obama’s malignant narcissism. The first part of the announcement, evoking 9/11, was vulgarly overwritten as per Obama’s view of himself as some kind of gifted orator. The adjective bloated compote was unworthy of the subject, banal and self-indulgent.

    Then there were his tasteless claims of personal leadership, his over-emphasis on “I” and “at my direction.” Clearly, all he did was sign off on initiatives other, better men had originated. He was ungenerous to Bush, who had to deal with this thing in real time under more pressure any president has faced since Pearl Harbor and wasn’t helped by the treachery of the democratic party, as exemplified by then Senator Obama. Clearly, we staged from Afghanistan. We were able to stage from Afghanistan because of Bush and the intel that led to the kill was just as obviously developed over years of effort, begun by Bush.

    Finally, the NBC worship of O on the lead-in was mentally and morally repugnant. They used this as an example to bash Bush, mocking the fact that eight years ago to the day Bush had been photographed under a mission accomplished sign, without reference to the fact that the sign referred to Iraq, not Afghan, not the GWoT. And that Obama’s course in his presidency has been made so much easier by virtue of the fact that
    Bush won the war that Obama and his cohort so opposed and yearned for
    our defeat in.

    That said, God bless the commandos! Man, I would have like to have been on that entry team!

    It’s good that he’s finally gone (bin Laden), but I do find it somewhat perverse that people are having parties in the street about it. I’m sure it’s cathartic to some, but it won’t bring back any of the families’ loved ones.

    To say that we hated Osama Bin Laden is exactly like saying we loved Michael Jackson. It is this collective expression of heavy emotion that killed them both.

    Regardless of the choices people make celebrating the event, I find it shameful this President uses the occasion to shine the light on himself

    Arent blogs a form of narcissism?

  6. amuzikman says:

    I suppose that would depend on your definition of the term. defines it as: inordinate fascination with oneself; excessive self-love; vanity.
    Are you claiming that utilization of a venue for expressing personal opinion is equivalent to fascination with oneself?
    Do you feel that you are being narcissistic any time you voice an opinion?

    Blogs (social networks) are like a stage without house lights. The performer never sees the size of the audience. Under these circumstances, it’s fun to be pretentious. Who’s gonna know? Who’s gonna care?
