So people like me, a backer of the Tea Party, hold the reins?
Far from a genuine grassroots uprising, this astroturf effort was curated by wealthy industrialists years in advance. Many of the anti-science operatives who defended cigarettes are currently deploying their tobacco-inspired playbook internationally to evade accountability for the fossil fuel industry's role in driving climate disruption.

2. Obama also displays a number of traits associated with antisocial personality/borderline personality disorder.
Antisocial Personality Disorder
•Failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors as indicated by repeatedly performing acts that are grounds for arrest
•Deceitfulness, as indicated by repeated lying, use of aliases, or conning others for personal profit or pleasure
•Impulsivity or failure to plan ahead
•Irritability and aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or assaults
•Reckless disregard for safety of self or others
•Consistent irresponsibility, as indicated by repeated failure to sustain consistent work behavior or honor financial obligations
•Lack of remorse, as indicated by being indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another
Sure he doesn’t have them all but a lot of them...drug use, lies like a champ and believes his own lies, lack of remorse when he uses someone then throws them under the bus (Wright and others).
These issues are worthy of exploration because, if they are correct, the decision-making capacity of the President predictably will become unstable under any threat of significant policy failure and under any significant conflict with other world leaders. He shuts down when the going gets tough and his cult starts to see through his facade.
I was desperately seeking a Franklin Delano Obama. It is appearing that I got a George W. Obama instead.
You have a chance to leave a great legacy Sir.

Heff, we made the mistake of putting our trust, our faith in elected officials instead of ourselves, our neighbors, our friends.
We were led to believe that government actually knew more, knew better. But all government is, is a collection of the same messed up miserable people that we deal with every day.

it's the "backers" of the Tea Party et al who hold the reins. It's greed and the love of money and power that are running this country. The politicians are mere 'helpers' to those who really run the place. Obama thinks he can change that. I wish him luck.
