the psyche of a congenital fabricator

Reader comment on item: Obama's Muslim Childhood

Submitted by john w mcginley (United States), Sep 14, 2012 at 12:49

First of all, thank-you for your research and clear exposition of it. You give credibility to what you say precisely because you never make claims without grounding them in documented evidence. I am not you and that's good for both of us. I do assert claims -- always grounded in strong probability but shy on documented evidence. There is room for both of us in this world.

President Obama is a congenital fabricator. He really can't help himself. Indeed, even now he is still trying to discover just who he is. I suggest that he has a narcissistic disorder in the clinical sense which he is able to mask because of his high intelligence. Such a man will become a dangerous tyrant when (or if?) he gets a second term unfettered by the need for getting re-elected. ((Tangentially the forthcoming election may very well be decided on massive voter fraud in favor of Obama.))

All of that being stipulated he did indeed blurt out the truth about where he was born. In that 1991 fabrication of his life President Obama did blurt one major truth. That still-young and crazily ambitious man of thirty already "dreamed" he might become President. But it was but a dream for that young man and, back then, he never thought it would actually occur. He didn't really believe that one day he would be called on to produce proof to the effect that he was born in the USA. President Obama was in fact born in Kenya. His mother -- at some risk to her own health -- flew back to Hawaii one or two days after her birth. She wanted to have her son recognized as an American citizen.

Her parents lived there. In these matters, it is not what you know but who you know. And back in 1961 -- especially in Hawaii -- things were loose. It wouldn't take much for his mother and her parents to persuade the appropriate people to produce an official birth certificate for the new baby. Thus I am not a "birther" in the sense of claiming that Obama's proffered copies of his birth certificate are not "official" . This document dates back to the first week or so of Obama's life.

Nor am I a "birther" in the sense that I think the case against Obama should include the fact that he was NOT born as an American citizen. It simply cannot be proven. All the people involved in bringing about that fraudulent (but well-intentioned <>) document are now long dead and buried. What happens in Hawaii stays in Hawaii. This reality (actually verified by Obama himself in his otherwise fabicated biography) can never be proven. Period. Thus it is a loser in making the case against Obama. The case against Obama should never be, in any way, predicated on the fact that he is in fact not an American citizen. Even so, it needs to be quietly said for the record.

The tragically sad thing about the present campaign is that Obama lucked out by having Romney as his opponent. That decent man is congenitally aloof even when he attempts not to be. ((Indeed when he feigns not being aloof his numbers go down in the polls.)) He is stilted beyond repair. To be sure he would be orders of magnitude better than if that tyrant-in-the-making as President. But elections are not won or lost because of rational factors.

Is the inevitability of an Obama second term sealed in already? Probably yes. However if there was, say in the next three weeks, a huge gutsy military action taken by some gutsy nation against the most vile and dangerous regime in our time it might shake-up the election. The gutsy nation is not led by Obama for sure. But the leader of the gutsy nation is suffering from a Hamlet complex. It's never too late --- until it is too late. It is well known that Hamlet acted too late.
