Malignant narcissism has delusions of grandeur as a key aspect...
Even some who actually attain positions of great influence never see reality. Obama really BELIEVES what the Leftist, obsequious media gushingly coo toward him, BUT even THEY are finally starting to retch at his overt deceptions.
The ObaMessiah has been handled by some truly crafty Leftist guys (David Plouffe, David Axelrod, "Rahmbo" Emanuel, Jack Lew, Larry Summers, e.g.) who use him to con the masses...arguably a variation on the Manchurian Candidate.
Shrillary had said that he could not be elected...actually, he hit the scene at just the right time for a slick black guy with a phony resume (and even that was NOTHING, really!). He began with the low information and guvment dependent voters in his pocket...the latter (net receivers of guvment $) are approaching 50% of the populace. Then he snowed the young and gullible and enough of the white guilt crowd-- BINGO!
Obama ADMITS that his entire agenda is to redistribute wealth from those dastardly, successful producers to the needy, more deserving takers via wealth transfer Big Entitlement Guvment like ObamaCare...that worked so well in the USSR and the former China--
