“The beauty of being a narcissist is that even when disaster stares you in the face, you feel neither doubt nor remorse.” —Carl Vogel, A Field Guide to Narcissism
Politicians on both sides of the aisle are becoming perturbed about the president’s “I - ME” fixation - the manifest hubris of
Obama is also causing angst among our allies. French President Nicolas Sarkozy is especially irked with him. On Greta van Susteren, Jack Kelly of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that at the UN general assembly, Obama’s advisors told him not to interfere with his “fantasy about global

Obama is already showing the truculence typical of narcissists when they sense a threat to narcissistic supply.
