Is Obama Starting To Lose His Mind?

After the Ft Hood massacre, Obama did this:

Obama's Frightening Insensitivity Following Shooting


President Obama didn't wait long after Tuesday's devastating elections to give critics another reason to question his leadership, but this time the subject matter was more grim than a pair of governorships.

After news broke out of the shooting at the Fort Hood Army post in Texas, the nation watched in horror as the toll of dead and injured climbed. The White House was notified immediately and by late afternoon, word went out that the president would speak about the incident prior to a previously scheduled appearance. At about 5 p.m., cable stations went to the president. The situation called for not only his trademark eloquence, but also grace and perspective.

But instead of a somber chief executive offering reassuring words and expressions of sympathy and compassion, viewers saw a wildly disconnected and inappropriately light president making introductory remarks. At the event, a Tribal Nations Conference hosted by the Department of Interior's Bureau of Indian affairs, the president thanked various staffers and offered a "shout-out" to "Dr. Joe Medicine Crow -- that Congressional Medal of Honor winner." Three minutes in, the president spoke about the shooting, in measured and appropriate terms. Who is advising him?


And now I find this out:

Obama Gives Shout Out to 'Congressional Medal of Honor Winner' Who Isn't


Ah, the dangers of giving shout outs without a teleprompter. Crow is not a Medal of Honor recipient. As noted by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society:

The Medal of Honor is the highest award for valor in action against an enemy force which can be bestowed upon an individual serving in the Armed Services of the United States. Generally presented to its recipient by the President of the United States of America in the name of Congress, it is often called the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Crow's name is not included on the Society's Medal of Honor recipient list. He was, however, awarded the Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, in August.

Obama, often described as "cerebral" by the mainstream media, should know the difference between the Medal of Honor and the Medal of Freedom, especially since he personally awarded the latter to Crow. Don't expect his blunder to receive wide coverage. It's not something he can blame George Bush for.


Obama was the one to present Crow the Medal of Freedom 2 months ago, and yet he says Crow got the Medal of Honor.

Seems pretty strange for such a 'knowledgeable' individual, or is he?

The guy made one mistake. How is that "losing his mind"?

I am pretty sure you've made little slip-ups like that before. Did anyone accuse you of losing your mind?

This thread has one purpose and one purpose only. To bash Obama. To be frank, it's pathetic and a waste of space. I am getting tired of these threads.

There was an active discussion about this yesterday. For my part, I thought the light-hearted 'shout out' was very inappropriate under the circumstances.

I can otherwise excuse the Medal of Freedom/Honor mix-up as a simple mistake.

For such a 'cerebral' President of the 57 United States, I'd have to say that 'Medal of Honor' slip was quite a big one.

I'll agree that the shout out thing was a bit inappropriate considering the circumstances. Other than that i see the Medal of Honor thing as just a mistake. I don't consider it that he's losing his mind. Maybe under a lot of pressure. But losing his mind? I don't think so.

Or, he actually doesn't have a mind without someone telling him what to say through a teleprompter?

The mix up is of the least concern to me...

Giving the shout out is eh...I do not like the guy already - so what more is there to say?

Wouldn't he have to have a mind before he can lose it?
Second line . . . maybe?

I was going to comment along this line, too.

Heck, I will go ahead. You can't lose your mind if you don't have your own mind in the first place.

Any one of us would probably go a little nuts in the head if we were ourselves were put into that position and had access to all those secrets .. particularly the one about the future fate of humanity. Poor guy. I don't like his commie socialist agenda that intends to enslave the few for the benefit of the many (
), but I do have sympathy and pity for the guy, he's got some tough life and death decisions to make that are probably constantly on his mind. It's a pity too that so many (the sheople) have chosen to put their fate into the hands of one, but, ha, they will eventually get what they deserve for THAT huge mistake.

"Losing his mind", or, bringing himself down to the level of some of his "fellow Americans"? Maybe he's gotten tired of the whole elitist label, so he spent an afternoon at a tea party protest and can no longer dress himself.


I forgot my keys today, had to walk all the way back from the car, I guess that makes me borderline incompetent by your measure

This guy is cold, calculating, robotic, and stubborn. Listen to the end of the speech to the Indians! Listen to it! He's singing zip a dee doo dah to the Indians calling them the "first Americans" they're hardly that in terms of achievements are they?

But he's busy damn it. Don't interrupt the messiah when he's handing out goodies to non white people who have a grievance against white people!

Listen to the end of the speech! Before he finally got around to mentioning dead and wounded soldiers who'd been shot by a homegrown terrrorist shouting Allah Akbar, he says " we want to make sure you GET eveything that's coming to you" or some such.

He says the word "GET"! In his mind he's not the President of the US... he's the guy who is here to make sure all "oppressed" people "get" even with whitey!

This job is much more important to him than Commander in Chief

Oh yeah one more thing speaking of insanity. This quote from the hellary demon herself loses all of its frightening power as simply words on a page.

"I'm sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration." -Hillary Clinton (5/15/07)

We cannot fathom the depths of madness she displayed here in a quote. We need the tape of Hillary screeching these words from the bottom of her damned soul like some pure lunatic about to be put in the straight jacket and left in the rubber room.

Agree with a slip but it does show just how much he hold each in value. Somebody that holds the Military in a High regard would have NEVER made such a slip. Some commander in chief.

It could be as you said. I do not think that he is losing his mind though.

He said, "We don't know all the answers yet. And I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts," spoken at the Rose Garden. Link here:

news.yahoo.com...

Maybe the President is giving out signals that are sly and covert? To warn us or to hurt us? I don't know. I find that slip up about the medal of freedom to be too strange to be an accident on his part. Either he is trying to draw attention to us losing our freedom, or he was using code words as they use for their Manchurian Candidates. The Washington Sniper, who was obviously one, in my opinion, was possibly given a code to step down. Link to that here:

www.cuttingedge.org...

A thread about the possibilities here on ATS:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Also the first site goes into the black magic and freemasonry symbols that the shootings in Washington created, here:

www.cuttingedge.org...



I find it odd that the name of the medal that was actually given was called The Medal of Freedom. But Obama possibly chose instead the name Medal of Honor. Is he saying that we are losing our freedom? Or was it possibly a Manchurian Candidate phrase to end the killing spree?

Or, is he losing his mind? I don't think that is the case.

I'm going to take this as if you truly mean it.

The reason it seems so many people are out to slate him could be because he wishes to impose a totalitarian regime where once we had a democratic republic. Under a democratic republic, people are generally free to succeed or fail, prosper or go broke, be creative and enjoy freedoms, or stifle one's talents and subsist on regrets. While many people want to be coddled and cradled, but they don't see that there are disadvantages to having a socialist totalitarian regime.

In a socialist totalitarian regime, people are not generally free. In fact, in such a regime, people are under the watchful eyes of hungry, greedy neighbors watching their every move, perchance they may receive a reward for tattling on you, whether your offense was real or not. In such a regime, you don't prosper, you don't become rich. In such a regime, you and your children are owned by the state, cradled in its secure arms from birth until death. You are a number in their minds, an animal, a slave. Your attempts at creativity must stay within certain bounds, or you suffer for it, usually with imprisonment and sometimes death.

I don't like this. I don't like this at all. And I would rather die in a Revolution, than fade away in some internment camp while childish people wag their heads at me through the chain-link fence, as they go to their secure job, every day of the week, for the rest of their boring and dull pitiful lives.

So yeah, some people might be eager to see Obama fail. Count me as one of them, though I wish him no harm.

And consider this, political dissension is not allowed in a totalitarian regime, thus the hippy-like, new ager, liberals who eagerly advocate this system are among the first of its victims, for they squash all differences of form and opinion and beliefs. In other words, in their eyes, you are no different than the ones who fought them, because you claim to be individuals, you must be taken out. Some call this just desserts, I call it sad irony.

they're just repeating what rush says. it's pretty common these days. it's FOX SPEAK, a language found about 14 years ago, that was unheard off in the industrialized countries. the style is a type of jolting, hyperbolic, series of phrases and words that elicits a viseral, emotional feeling in the subject that uses it. this "feeling" is one that lends the person to believe that they have uttered something profound and meaningful, whether it makes sense or not. you can tell if this is true, by actually asking the person that said it, to go into detail about the meaning, origin of, and verifiable data to support their pronouncement.
