Obama: Ya’ know, people who watch Fox News sure are really “stubborn”

posted at 6:41 pm on July 13, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

President Obama is in the middle of a two-day campaign tour through Virginia — perhaps one of the most clutch of the in-play swing states — to present his latest talking points to the gathered masses in person, à la hiking taxes on the rich, Mitt Romney’s positively scandalous offshoring career at Bain Capital, and etcetera. But of course, to really get any progressive party started, nothing gets the crowd chuckling like an oh-so-subtle jab at Everybody’s Most Hated News Network.

“So, just in case some of your friends or neighbors or, ya know, Uncle Jim who’s a little stubborn and been watching Fox News and, ya know, he thinks that somehow I raised taxes. Let’s just be clear. We’ve lowered taxes for middle class families since I came in office,” President Obama said at a campaign event in Virginia Beach, VA today.

And of course, when I say, “Everybody’s Most Hated News Network,” what I really mean is, you know, The Most Watched News Network on Television for Ten Years Running. That’s why such smug little “Faux News”-type, “bitter clingers”-esque comments just roll right off my back — the liberals can badmouth Fox and run to their blatantly and unapologetically biased news sources all they like, but we know it’s just ’cause they wish they were as cool as us. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

And by the way, Mr. President — as for your supposed tender love and care of the middle class? No, no:

This week, President Barack Obama announced a new push to extend tax cuts for individuals who make $250,000 or less a year. These tax cuts were enacted during the Bush administration, and are set to expire at the end of the year. While the White House would like you to believe this is an effort with good intentions to help protect the middle class, it is merely an attempt to distract tax payers from recent bad economic news, this plan will ultimately harm—not help—the middle class.

President Obama claims that his tax policy targets the rich while offering relief for the middle class by placing a $250,000 ceiling on tax cuts. What he doesn’t mention is that many of these so-called “rich” are actually small business owners. In effect, he is proposing to increase taxes on the very people who have been driving U.S. job creation while struggling to survive in a weakened economy. …

By targeting these individuals, President Obama is not only increasing taxes for nearly half of America’s small businesses, he is also making it harder for the middle class to be able to find the jobs they so desperately need.

If Obama ever gets his way on soaking “the rich”, then the middle class will be taxed. You know how “the rich, greedy corporations” get the money to pay higher taxes, right?

Taxes are more “trickle-down” than wealth. Wealth at the top doesn’t trickle down, it creates opportunities and jobs. Taxes at the top just get trickled down to the consumers/clients.

Virtually every channel on the tube pushes a leftist agenda. And nearly all the newspapers. And nearly alone as a moderately conservative choice is Fox News. Too make a huge difference, conservatives need to make greater strides in owning media, like buy NBC, for example.

On the surface this may seem like an innocuous little jab at FOX but underneath he’s seething.

The pacific mask crumbles when the narcissist has become convinced that the very people he purported to speak for, his constituency, his grassroots fans, the prime sources of his narcissistic supply – have turned against him. At first, in a desperate effort to maintain the fiction underlying his chaotic personality, the narcissist strives to explain away the sudden reversal of sentiment. “The people are being duped by (the media, big industry, the military, the elite, etc.)”, “they don’t really know what they are doing”, “following a rude awakening, they will revert to form”, etc. Source

From Flora Duh’s link above @ 6:59pm:

II. Behavior Patterns

The narcissist:

* Feels grandiose and self-important (e.g., exaggerates accomplishments, talents, skills, contacts, and personality traits to the point of lying, demands to be recognised as superior without commensurate achievements);

* Is obsessed with fantasies of unlimited success, fame, fearsome power or omnipotence, unequalled brilliance (the cerebral narcissist), bodily beauty or sexual performance (the somatic narcissist), or ideal, everlasting, all-conquering love or passion;

* Firmly convinced that he or she is unique and, being special, can only be understood by, should only be treated by, or associate with, other special or unique, or high-status people (or institutions);

* Requires excessive admiration, adulation, attention and affirmation – or, failing that, wishes to be feared and to be notorious (Narcissistic Supply);

* Feels entitled. Demands automatic and full compliance with his or her unreasonable expectations for special and favourable priority treatment;

* Is “interpersonally exploitative”, i.e., uses others to achieve his or her own ends;

* Devoid of empathy. Is unable or unwilling to identify with, acknowledge, or accept the feelings, needs, preferences, priorities, and choices of others;

* Constantly envious of others and seeks to hurt or destroy the objects of his or her frustration. Suffers from persecutory (paranoid) delusions as he or she believes that they feel the same about him or her and are likely to act similarly;

* Behaves arrogantly and haughtily. Feels superior, omnipotent, omniscient, invincible, immune, “above the law”, and omnipresent (magical thinking). Rages when frustrated, contradicted, or confronted by people he or she considers inferior to him or her and unworthy.

Narcissism is a defense mechanism whose role is to deflect hurt and trauma from the victim’s “True Self” into a “False Self” which is omnipotent, invulnerable, and omniscient. This False Self is then used by the narcissist to garner narcissistic supply from his human environment. Narcissistic supply is any form of attention, both positive and negative and it is instrumental in the regulation of the narcissist’s labile sense of self-worth.

Perhaps the most immediately evident trait of patients with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is their vulnerability to criticism and disagreement. Subject to negative input, real or imagined, even to a mild rebuke, a constructive suggestion, or an offer to help, they feel injured, humiliated and empty and they react with disdain (devaluation), rage, and defiance.

From my book “Malignant Self Love – Narcissism Revisited”:

“To avoid such intolerable pain, some patients with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) socially withdraw and feign false modesty and humility to mask their underlying grandiosity. Dysthymic and depressive disorders are common reactions to isolation and feelings of shame and inadequacy.”

Due to their lack of empathy, disregard for others, exploitativeness, sense of entitlement, and constant need for attention (narcissistic supply), narcissists are rarely able to maintain functional and healthy interpersonal relationships.

Many narcissists are over-achievers and ambitious. Some of them are even talented and skilled. But they are incapable of team work because they cannot tolerate setbacks. They are easily frustrated and demoralized and are unable to cope with disagreement and criticism. Though some narcissists have meteoric and inspiring careers, in the long-run, all of them find it difficult to maintain long-term professional achievements and the respect and appreciation of their peers. The narcissist’s fantastic grandiosity, frequently coupled with a hypomanic mood, is typically incommensurate with his or her real accomplishments (the “grandiosity gap”).

An important distinction is between cerebral and somatic narcissists. The cerebrals derive their Narcissistic Supply from their intelligence or academic achievements and the somatics derive their Narcissistic Supply from their physique, exercise, physical or sexual prowess and romantic or physical “conquests”.

Another crucial division within the ranks of patients with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is between the classic variety (those who meet five of the nine diagnostic criteria included in the DSM), and the compensatory kind (their narcissism compensates for deep-set feelings of inferiority and lack of self-worth).
Obama displays the following behaviors, which are among the hallmarks of pathological narcissism:

* Subtly misrepresents facts and expediently and opportunistically shifts positions, views, opinions, and “ideals” (e.g., about campaign finance, re-districting). These flip-flops do not cause him overt distress and are ego-syntonic (he feels justified in acting this way). Alternatively, reuses to commit to a standpoint and, in the process, evidences a lack of empathy.

Ignores data that conflict with his fantasy world, or with his inflated and grandiose self-image. This has to do with magical thinking. Obama already sees himself as president because he is firmly convinced that his dreams, thoughts, and wishes affect reality. Additionally, he denies the gap between his fantasies and his modest or limited real-life achievements (for instance, in 12 years of academic career, he hasn’t published a single scholarly paper or book).

– Feels that he is above the law, incl. and especially his own laws.

– Talks about himself in the 3rd person singluar or uses the regal “we” and craves to be the exclsuive center of attention, even adulation

– Have a messianic-cosmic vision of himself and his life and his “mission”.

– Sets ever more complex rules in a convoluted world of grandiose fantasies with its own language (jargon)

– Displays false modesty and unctuous “folksiness” but unable to sustain these behaviors (the persona, or mask) for long. It slips and the true Obama is revealed: haughty, aloof, distant, and disdainful of simple folk and their lives.

- Sublimates aggression and holds grudges.

- Behaves as an eternal adolescent (e.g., his choice of language, youthful image he projects, demands indulgence and feels entitled to special treatment, even though his objective accomplishments do not justify it).

I know my memory isn’t what it used to be, but I don’t ever remember a president who so gleefully and repeatedly insulted and demeaned those Americans who disagree with him – not just his political opponents (I get that) but the very people he’s supposed to represent?

So, back at ya, Barky. Adding to the list of his mannerisms that set my teeth on edge let’s include the overuse of “ya know” accompanied by that self-satisfied smug grin (“oh, how droll and amusing am I!!!”) accompanied by that annoying rising cadence at the end of his “zingers.”

Oh, heck. I just can’t stand the guy.

Wait until he starts criticizing HA readers and commenters. Can’t wait to see what he says about this place. heh. I love it, so naturally bozo in chief must hate it.

Liberals, democrats….please wake up. This guy thinks you’re a bunch of dumb yokels that’ll fall for his crap. He doesn’t even believe the liberal socialist progressive tripe he’s peddling, he just wants YOU to believe it. All he wants is power, and boy if he gets a second term the gloves are off and your freedom is GONE.

One simple example of this is his gutting welfare reform, and bypassing the entire system of government to do it. He wants you dependent on HIM so you HAVE to vote for him to keep your gimmies, meanwhile he’s busily destroying the rest of the productive economy so you have NO CHOICE but to get on and stay on the government tit. You might not be a ‘taker’, yet, but he’s working hard at making you one if you aren’t.

People who vote for this cretin are not ever going to be better off than they are now or were 4, 12, 16, 30 years ago, things are going to get much, much worse.

OBAMA IS A CRIMINAL! TREAT HIM LIKE ONE!

People who watch MSNBC are sure stupid.

This week, President Barack Obama announced a new push to extend tax cuts for individuals who make $250,000 or less a year.

The oaf lies and misleads.

These are not “tax cuts”. It’s leaving them the same as they have been for 10 years.

He wants to raise taxes on small businesses and those making over 250,000/yr., wich include the small businesses.

“You lie” was the truest thing ever said about Obama, Barack.

Good thing those middle class folks don’t smoke otherwise they would have had their taxes increased. Oh, was that racist?

I can’t wait to get rid of this clown, but I will be watching with curiousity his post-presidential moves. I am quite interested in seeing how he handles his fall from grace.

Dude’s starting to look a bit crazaye.

Starting to look a bit crazaye, Key West?

Remember this oldie but goodie from 2010?

He’s either crazaye, possessed, or both. But he’s certainly not rowing around with both oars in the water.

Ever notice how Obama attacks American citizens? I can’t ever recall a president attacking the people like this.

Wow, this idiot is really going to lose. Amazing.

Having had a chance to read the article, my favorite quote that just nails narcissism (and Obama): “[A narcissist] is a pond who thinks he’s an ocean.”

How true the knife that cuts.

TXUS on July 13, 2012 at 7:24 PM

I never would have imagined the US would have ever elected such a pansy as president.

“Stick that in your pipe and smoke it.”

Given Obama’s personal history, that well placed old line made me laugh. Thanks Erika!
