Letter: President Obama is into himself

President Obama, according to many leading psychiatrists, is a narcissist; not good if you are POTUS because narcissists are unable to admit when they are wrong. Not only that, these same doctors say the Cabinet he has picked has many of those same problems, putting our country in very precarious hands.

This week Mr. Obama changed his mind about showing enhanced interrogation pictures. This was the right decision the Republicans and VP Cheney have been pushing for and Obama undoubtedly knew they would come out anyway, but he made the right decision for the wrong reasons. The polls showed Americans were against it and he would have to contend with the blowback, chances of soldiers being killed, etc. His careful statement threw any blame off himself.

And now, he is resuming the Bush tribunals, one of the first things he got rid of when coming into office. In order to keep from saying he was wrong, he has basically said they would be run right this time.

And now, after spending us into oblivion, he has suddenly appeared at a town hall meeting in New Mexico and stated the current "deficit" spending is "unsustainable," warned of skyrocketing interest rates and said "we can't just keep on borrowing from China."

He continued, "we have to pay interest on that debt, and that means we are mortgaging our children's future with more and more debt." Huh? Isn't this exactly what the Republicans have been saying for months now, Mr. President? I am beginning to think narcissism isn't his only problem.
