(Related update): The Fall of the Narcissist-In-Chief

Related update: I stumbled across this short (6 mins) interview with Charles Krauthammer yesterday and thought it would make a nice update to the original post below.

An interesting note: early in the talk, Krauthammer references an attack on Barry Goldwater (an early libertarian-minded GOP politician who ran for president in 1964) by the psychiatric discipline. It's a great, albeit scary, example of "science" put to use for politics, much as the global warming issue has been today.  Anyway, click here to read more of this shameful episode in American "science".

Original post 10/10/14: If you're prone to schadenfreude (as most of us are), you'll like a recent article from Peter Wehner over at Commentary.  He has fun commenting of Obama's state of mind as his Presidency continues to unravel.  Here's the concluding paragraph:
Watching a narcissist struggle to deal with massive, multiplying failures can be a poignant thing, especially when everyone gets what’s going on except the narcissist and his enablers. When this happens to a sitting president, however, what is poignant becomes alarming. Because it’s always better that the president of the United States live in reality rather than creating his own.
And by the way, I've blogged on the narcissist theme previously here at OLS: See here and here.
