Why the Right Thinks Obama’s a Narcissist—and Why They’re Wrong – The Daily Beast………..

September 19, 2014 1 comment

Now some on the right think Obama says ‘I’ too much. In fact, he doesn’t. But what does it mean that they can’t stand to hear him say it?

Charles Krauthammer has told Fox News that President Obama is a narcissist. And he should know, because once he was a psychologist.His evidence? Obama apparently says “I” too much.

He’s all into himself instead of the country he’s supposed to be running. “Count the number of times he uses ‘I’ in any speech, and compare that to any other president,” limns Doctor Krauthammer. “Remember when he announced the killing of Bin Laden?

That speech I believe had 29 references to ‘I’—on my command, I ordered, as Commander-in-Chief I was then told, I this.”But as linguist Mark Liberman notes at Language Log, the president used the word “I” exactly 10 times in that speech. Meanwhile, when Ronald Reagan made a speech in an analogous situation about Lebanon and Grenada, he used “I” exactly, um, 29 times.

Or are you now just rolling with the punches?Catherine the Great Karl’s better half is a student of history too. And she recalls from her studies of the Spanish Flu that elections were postponed during that outbreak.The November 2014 elections, only 49 days away, are cautiously predicted to be a Republican blow-out.

Obama has made mistakes but so did Bush by invading. There’s no good case for U.S. military intervention now.Though many claim the mantle of Ronald Reagan on foreign policy, too few look at how he really conducted it.

The Iraq war is one of the best examples of where we went wrong because we ignored that.In 1984, Reagan’s Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger developed the following criteria for war, primarily to avoid another Vietnam.

At the end of the Cold War, Francis Fukuyama famously wrote that our world may be at the “end of history” where “Western liberal democracy” becomes “the final form of human government.”A quarter century on, such optimism seems naive.Consider the United States, the paragon of liberal democracy.An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll finds that only 14 percent of the people approve of Congress and only 19 percent approve of the GOP.

Seventy-one percent believe America is headed in the wrong direction.Nor is this the exceptional crisis of a particular presidency.JFK was assassinated. LBJ was broken by race riots and anti-war demonstrations.

Is the President Incompetent or Lawless?By Andrew P. Napolitano

 

July 31, 2014Email PrintFacebookTwitterShare

It has been well established under the Constitution and throughout our history that the president’s job as the chief federal law enforcement officer permits him to put his ideological stamp on the nature of the work done by the executive branch.
