It makes me wonder: Did Obama ever have a head injury? His stepfather in Indonesia was purportedly an alcoholic abuser. Was Obama subject to any physical abuse?
Obama admits to a history of drug use in his youth. Did his usage cause some damage? Does Obama still use?
Obama's family tree is replete with the unbalanced. His maternal great-grandmother committed suicide. His grandfather, Stanley Dunham, was particularly unhinged: He was expelled from high school for punching his principal; named his daughter Stanley because he wanted a boy; and exposed young Barry to not just drunken trash talk, but unrestricted visits with alleged pedophile Frank Marshall Davis (who might or might not be Obama's biological father). Barack Sr. was an abusive, alcoholic bigamist.
Apparently, young Barry was left in the care of Communist Frank Marshall Davis, who admitted to molesting a 13-year-old girl. As a teenager, Obama wrote a disturbing poem, "Pop," that evoked images of sexual abuse -- for instance, describing dual amber stains on both his and "Pop's" shorts.
According to a report issued by retired U.S. Army Major-General Paul E. Vallely, who has served as special Fox News analyst for military issues, a reputable journalist with significant contacts inside the White House has asserted that Barack Obama has become unfit to serve due to emotional instability. – Anthony G. Martin
The assertions made by ‘Deep Throat’ are astounding…and frightening. The compilation of statements made by sources inside the White House paint a picture of a President who is in the throes of deep depression, and who exhibits no interest at all in the routine functions of the office of the President. Assertions also indicate that Obama is obsessed with the throngs he encounters on the campaign trail, and erroneously assumes they all adore him. – Wayne Madsen
Information is leaking that Barack Obama was treated for mental related illnesses in the 70′s and early 80′s and may have been prescribed anti-psychotic medications. Schizophrenia is the main reported diagnosis with possible case [of] severe depression…

The term "psychotherapist" is unlicensed; anyone -- and I mean anyone -- can call himself a psychotherapist.

I do not feel as though the overall issue of the presidents current state of mental health should be over looked.
His shady dedication to containing his personal information from the public is more than enough, in my opinion, to demand it’s release.

should we allow a mentally challenged individual to hold our highest ranking political offices?
But seriously, his hubristic narcissism is, I find, disturbing. His apparent disconnection with the public and pathological lying can be somewhat off-putting. He just doesn’t seem to get “it”, which would lead me to believe that, if he’s not being controlled like a puppet, then he’s mental.
What makes me wonder is his refusal to release medical records.

Yes, you're entitled to your opinion. What I'm wondering is what has Obama done to make you think that he may have mental issues. Or does anyone with a stressful job get accused of having mental issues?
The two factors:
Factor 1: Personality "Aggressive narcissism"
- Glibness/superficial charm
- Grandiose sense of self-worth
- Pathological lying
- Lack of remorse or guilt
- Shallow affect (genuine emotion is short-lived and egocentric)
- Callousness; lack of empathy
- Failure to accept responsibility for own actions
Factor 2: Case history "Socially deviant lifestyle".
- Need for stimulation/proneness to boredom
- Parasitic lifestyle
- Poor behavioral control
- Lack of realistic long-term goals
- Juvenile delinquency
- Early behavior problems
- Revocation of conditional release
Traits not correlated with either factor
- Promiscuous sexual behavior
- Many short-term marital relationships
- Criminal versatility
- Acquired behavioural sociopathy/sociological conditioning
(Item 21: a newly identified trait i.e. a person relying on sociological strategies and tricks to deceive)
The PCL-R is a clinical rating scale (rated by a psychologist or other professional) of 20 items. Each of the items in the PCL-R is scored on a three-point scale according to specific criteria through file information and a semi-structured interview. A value of 0 is assigned if the item does not apply, 1 if it applies somewhat, and 2 if it fully applies. In addition to lifestyle and criminal behavior the checklist assesses glib and superficial charm, grandiosity, need for stimulation, pathological lying, conning and manipulating, lack of remorse, callousness, poor behavioral controls, impulsivity, irresponsibility, failure to accept responsibility for one's own actions and so forth. The scores are used to predict risk for criminal re-offence and probability of rehabilitation.
