Yesterday, the New York Times, as a Christmas gift to those of us who enjoy laughing until pumpkin pie and egg nog shoots out our noses, published a piece about how President Obama has a natural penchant for humility:
“I think it speaks volumes about the man’s temperament,” said Robert Dallek, the presidential historian. “He doesn’t crave the spotlight the way some of these other presidents have. They needed to be constantly in the eye of the public; it propelled them into politics in the first place. Obama is less that way; he is more of a self-contained person, someone who can genuinely spend time by himself with his family.”

This is his 'move to the right' we have heard so much speculation about. He doesn't actually become more moderate. They just start saying he is humble, compare him to Reagan, and he says he is reading a book on Reagan while on vacation. Boy, I'm so glad he is now a more conservative, humble man especially since he had them declassify narcissism as not being a psychological disorder.

Well, he's not a narcissist.
The APA says narcissism doesn't exist anymore.
However, to the APA's credit ( no, they don't really deserve any), they have just rolled the symptoms of narcissism over under sociopathy/psychopathology.
In 2013 the APA publishes newest version of DSMV, so they could still add narcissism back.
Many clinicians are running around screaming like their heads are on fire about it!
They needed to get rid of narcissism since Mr. Obama is one.
APA likes to get rid of stuff for political purposes.
