The Abused & Schizotypal President


American Thinker: A Shrink Asks: What's Wrong with Obama?

Along with a delusional disorder, Obama may fit for a mild psychotic disorder called schizotypal disorder. It may explain some of Obama's oddness.  People with schizotypal disorder hold bizarre beliefs, are suspicious and paranoid, and have inappropriate and constricted affect. They have few close friends and are socially awkward. A schizotypal is someone like your strange cousin Becky who is addicted to astrology, believes she is psychic, and is the oddball at social gatherings. Schizotypal Disorder does ring some bells vis-à-vis Obama. One way the diagnosis doesn't fit, however, is that schizotypals are generally harmless, odd ducks. Not so with Obama.

--Trauma: My gut tells me that Obama was seriously traumatized in childhood. His mother disregarded his basic needs, dragged him all over the place, and ultimately abandoned him. But I think there may be something even more insidious in his family background. While I can't prove it, the degree of Obama's disconnect reminds me of my sexually abused clients.

Your Say

Wasn't little Barry's childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, a pedophile? Did something happen to little Barry at Davis's hands?

I know that's rude, but just askin'

I thought Davis was rumored to be his actual father.

In concert with Robin and Don Rodrigo, I think the most likely combo responsible for 0bama's brokenness is childhood sexual abuse and his use as a symbol of cultural cachet by his grandparents.

The same day Robin posted her first speculation about his narcissism I posted this


at Washington Rebel. Did she read it, or was it simply a case of The Synchronicity of Great Minds? She's a shrink; I'm not. I claim the right to my view strictly from the standpoint of seeing child abuse from the inside. What is apparent about 0bama is that he's never had the guts, or felt the need, to confront the screams in his head.

Good for Robin.

It is thoughts like this that make me pray for our rulers. I think it is believable that you almost have to suffer from some psychosis to be elected to any office these days.
