Subject: BS: Is Obama Unable to Discharge?
Yesterday, Obama denied he ever promised that Americans could keep their health care. He said, "What we said was you could keep it if it hasn't changed since the law was passed." A story about that can be found at the link below:

But at the next link you can see Obama promise 24 times in a minute and a half that, "If you like your health plan, you can keep your health plan." No qualifications. A straight-up promise:

So, now Obama is lying about his lies. And so publicly. This must necessarily prompt one to ask if the man is insane.

The question has been debated for some time now.

Is Obama Insane? Patterns of Evidence

Obama displays the following behaviors, which are among the hallmarks of pathological narcissism:
(1) Subtly misrepresents facts and expediently and opportunistically shifts positions, views, opinions, and "ideals".
(2) Ignores data that conflict with his fantasy world, or with his inflated and grandiose self-image.
(3) Feels that he is above the law, incl. and especially his own laws.
(4) Talks about himself in the 3rd person singular or uses the regal "we" and craves to be the exclusive center of attention, even adulation.
(5) Has a messianic-cosmic vision of himself and his life and his "mission".
(6) Sets ever more complex rules in a convoluted world of grandiose fantasies with its own language (jargon).
(7) Displays false modesty and unctuous "folksiness" but unable to sustain these behaviors (the persona, or mask) for long. It slips and the true Obama is revealed: haughty, aloof, distant, and disdainful of simple folk and their lives.
(8) Sublimates aggression and holds grudges.
(9) Behaves as an eternal adolescent, in his choice of language, youthful image he projects, demands indulgence and feels entitled to special treatment, even though his objective accomplishments do not justify it).

If Obama is insane, then he should be removed from the presidency. Section 4 of the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution says, "Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President."

So, is Obama unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office? Has insanity bested him? Is it time for for Vice President Biden and the others to step up and declare him unfit to hold the office?
