I agree this man has tremendous issues dating back to his birth and childhood but for heaven sake people let's get him out of the White House and into professional couseling. Let's stop him from inflicting America with HIS issues. Poor baby....Mommie didn't love you ....well get over it! My mother abandoned me at birth too but I,unlike Obama, didn't let it shape me into a monster that makes everyone else pay for and take part in my emotional pain. What a big baby!
I recently came across Nathaniel Hawthorne's haunting short story "Wakefield," and I couldn't help but notice similarities (and differences) between Wakefield and President Obama.

In "Wakefield," a man tells his wife he is leaving for a short trip, but instead, he moves in to a rental home a block away, where he remains for 20 years, unbeknownst to his wife and friends. At the end of this period, he waltzes right back into his house "as from a day's absence, and became a loving spouse till death."

Perhaps at first Wakefield isn't sure why he left. He could be experiencing a midlife crisis...
