A question or two for the president

Has there ever been an elected official, in America or elsewhere, who lies as continuously as you, Barack Hussein Obama-Soetoro? Is not the constant telling of blatant and obvious lies a mental condition, either sociopathic or compulsive lying? Your whole demeanor is a very close fit for sociopathic, as defined and the web (http://www.mcafee.cc/Bin/sb.html):

    "Glibness and Superficial Charm...(but) contemptuous of those who seek to understand them.

    Manipulative and Conning: They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.

    Grandiose Sense of Self: Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."

    Pathological Lying: Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.

    Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt: A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

    Shallow Emotions: When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises..."

This may not be the first time we've had a mentally ill president, but please God, can you let it be the last?

And how, I wonder, can one solve an economic "crisis" caused by out-of-control spending, by raising one's debt limit, thus allowing more out-of-control spending? Concomitantly, I wonder how you lower a massive deficit, caused by borrowing to indulge your out-of-control spending, by demanding to be allowed to borrow and spend even more? And does it not strike you as misguided, not to say really stupid, to advocate for another massive, multibillion dollar "stimulus" when by all accounts, except those of the sycophantic liars you have surrounded yourself with, the first one was an abject and total failure, and a major contributor to the mess we find ourselves in, today?

As a follow-up, I might ask where you got the ludicrous idea, one thoroughly discredited by facts, over and over, that raising taxes on people during an economic recession will do anything but make things significantly worse?

All this brings us to a final set of questions that many might think go to the heart of the matter.

First, do you really expect us to believe that you are brilliant when you think there are 57 states; can't remember how old your oldest daughter is; called it the Marine Corpse, and on another occasion didn't remember that a Marine you gave the Medal of Honor to was dead, not alive; in Austria, referred to a nonexistent "Austrian language"; called the Mexican Independence Day "Cinco de Quatro"; and can't give a speech, not even to elementary school kids, without a teleprompter?

If you were such a brilliant student, why have you sealed from public view all of the records from the colleges and universities you claim to have attended and done so well at? And why have you spent some $2,000,000 to make sure that they stay that way? Why is it that nobody — I repeat, nobody — who was at Columbia when you claim to have been there, including people who should have sat with you in classes day after day, remembers ever seeing or hearing of you?

Also, if your abilities as a lawyer were so superior, why did you relinquish your license to practice law, in 1991? Was it because you lied on your bar admittance application? And incidentally, why did your wife relinquish hers, in 1993?

I could go on, but since I don't expect any answers from you anyway, only more lies and excuses, more absurd obfuscation and placing the blame on everyone but yourself, I don't see much point in continuing. However, Dear Readers, should you have questions of your own, I urge you to mail them to:

    Barack Hussein Obama
    The White House
    1600 Pennsylvania Ave, NW
    Washington, DC 20500
