Do We Have a Sociopath in the White House?

Things aren’t going so well for America.

There was (and continues to be) major rioting in Ferguson, Missouri…there are still no jobs for middle class Americans…our Southern border is still under siege…Obamacare is a disaster…our veterans are dying at the hands of the incompetent Department of Veterans Affairs…the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria threatens to create a radical Muslim empire in the Middle East…and the world (from Israel to Ukraine to Syria to Iraq) is literally on fire.

Where was our president? On vacation…again.

This time even the media is whispering. “Where is Obama? Isn’t his indifference to the problems of America and disconnect from reality, strange?” The simple answer is, “no.”

This is how he’s been his entire adult life. It all started at Columbia University.

I believe we have a president who is an arrogant, egomaniacal sociopath.

The definition of a “sociopath” is a person with an antisocial personality disorder. They are often well liked because of their charm and high charisma, but they do not usually care about other people. They think mainly of themselves and often blame others for the things that they do. They have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly. They seldom feel guilt or learn from punishments.

My new book “The Murder of the Middle Class” presents the story in vivid detail. I was President Barack Obama’s college classmate at Columbia University, Class of 1983. I’ve been trying to tell America about Obama’s “problem” for seven long years now.

By college, a person’s personality, attitude and behavior is fairly well set. That’s why Obama’s Columbia days tell us so much about his behavior as president today.

Where was he? Why does virtually no one from Columbia remember the future president of the United States? Why did the future president make an impression on none of his classmates?

Things rarely change. Thirty years ago, my classmate was rarely seen. Thirty years later, he is rarely seen conducting the business of the presidency. No one should be surprised.

What do I know about Obama at Columbia? Nothing. I had never met him. As I’ve reported countless times to the media, Obama and I shared the same major— Political Science. We were both Pre-Law. It was a small class (about 700 students). The Political Science department was even smaller (maybe 150 students) and was a close-knit group. I thought I knew or had at least met everyone in this department.

But I never met Obama. Never even heard of him. What’s worse, neither did anyone I knew at Columbia. Think about that. My classmate is president of the United States. Yet he didn’t leave a footprint.

In all my years of publicly questioning Obama’s absence at Columbia, I know of only two possible sightings. Two people called me claiming to be classmates. One caller claimed that he thinks he saw Obama once in a bar across from Columbia blowing smoke rings. Another called to say he thinks he saw Obama in the cafeteria at Barnard (our sister school for women only).

Two possible Obama sightings in 30 years—one smoking in a bar, the other at a women’s cafeteria. Isn’t that the perfect guy to run your country?

Obama defenders and the media (I know, they’re the same) misinterpreted what I said. I never said Obama didn’t attend Columbia. I said he was never in class—perpetually absent, missing in action. Sound familiar?

Obama acts exactly the same today as president, as he did as a student at Columbia. Obama has always believed himself to be brilliant and better than the rest of us. He’s arrogant and detached. He thinks he’s too smart to have to actually do the work the rest of us do. He’s above it all. Why attend class when you think “what could someone as smart as me possibly learn in class?”

It’s the same story today. Obama rarely attends meetings, even with his cabinet. He’s too busy playing golf, taking vacations, or attending fundraisers.

This past February Obama skipped two national security meetings focused on Russia’s potential invasion of Ukraine. He was too busy to attend a meeting about a crisis that could lead to World War III.

Even if Obama wasn’t concerned about Russia invading Ukraine, certainly he finds America’s jobs crisis important, right? Wrong. Obama never bothered to convene one meeting of his own Jobs Council in a full year, even with unemployment and under-employment at crisis levels.

Even more remarkable, within two weeks of that story, Obama closed down his Jobs Council—with 12 million Americans still counted officially as unemployed.

So what is so important in Obama’s life?

Golf and fundraisers. PolitiFact.com, the non-partisan fact checker, confirmed our president golfed often and attended 106 fundraisers during just a six-month period where he could find no time, or interest, to attend even one meeting of his own Jobs Council.

And, where was Obama the night of the Benghazi attack? Both Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Martin Dempsey testified Obama was absent that night.

Four brave Americans died while Obama was “absent.” What could be so important that Obama never checked in to ask a question, or discuss a rescue attempt from 5:30 p.m. until the next morning (when everyone was dead)?

The track record is consistent.

Just like his college days, Obama believes he’s too gifted to do the actual work of president. He’s just too busy to have to worry about the plight of unemployed Americans. He’s even too important to worry about young black males killing each other in Chicago, or being shot by police, or serious unrest, rioting and looting in Ferguson, Missouri.

He’s got more important things to do than stay in touch as a U.S. Embassy is under attack. Hamas is lobbing missiles into Israel. Who cares? “I’ve got a golf game in the morning.”

To be exact, Obama has played 186 rounds of golf and counting, versus President George W. Bush’s 24.

Does Obama ever work? Sure. Every once in a while he throws a “Beer Summit.”

Not much has changed since Columbia University. Not Obama’s personality, not his attitude, not his behavior. Either Obama is detached and just couldn’t care less…or he just doesn’t like America very much, so he’s purposely fiddling while Rome burns.

Or, like O.J. Simpson, maybe he’s searching for the answers to all of these terrible crises in the holes and sand traps of America’s greatest golf courses.

This is most certainly “The Murder of the Middle Class.” And the death of America.

I believe we have a sociopath in the White House.

Interesting. Our lawmakers, who have a 90% incumbency rate, have been in office for decades passing laws and budgets that govern and fund the operations our government chooses to undertake but they bear no responsibility for the state of our nation?

IDK...i think this author doesn't understand how our government functions beyond what he sees on television.

  don't think you read posts very well or finish them.   This man has some good credentials.

And once again you are missing the point of a post.  It is about the sociopath in the WH.  It's not about 'the middle class'.  It's about Obama.  This article is an excerpt from the book 'The Murder of the Middle Class'.

 Have you been drinking so early in the morning?

You get first prize for the first 'bullshit' reply I've seen this morning.  But then again, I've only been on CM less than 1/2 hr.

According to the definition of sociopath, I'd say yes.

I do think he is very arrogant but I'm not so sure about him being a sociopath. I think he is more under qualified for his position than anything else. He makes rash decisions which due to him being under qualified always leads to some kind of disaster then he has to lie to cover his mistakes. I think he is avoiding the issue's stated above because he does not even have a clue as to where to begin in addressing them.
