How Long Before Obama Loses It and Before The Media “Gets It?”

Posted in politics by roving on January 24, 2009

I’m not a shrink but more of a people watcher. and I can say without hesitation Obama has a temper. I also think he has a mental problem. It has surfaced a couple times.

When in the senate Obama messed up a vote, which he did  more then a couple times, Obama’s fellow democrat  Hendon became angry at Obama for “mistakenly” voting the wrong way they almost came to blows. With the microphones off the two walked away and when Obama tried to put his hand on Hendon’s shoulder, Hendon slapped it away. Asked about the incident, Hendon said, “My memory is foggy on that issue. It’s going to remain foggy.”

A couple different times during the campaign Obama was getting a little upset with reporters asking questions.  The reporters didn’t see the warning signs of things coming  but I did and am sure others seen it too.

House and Senate Republicans expressed concern to the president about the amount of spending in the package. Obama’s response? “I won.” Obama shows who he is if you watch and listen. I knew someone exactly like him. He can’t help it. He needs to lie. He always brush’s off the lie when confronted with it. Like its no big deal. He also is a time bomb waiting to blow.

Politico: President Barack Obama made a surprise visit to the White House press corps Thursday night, but got agitated when he was faced with a substantive question.

Asked how he could reconcile a strict ban on lobbyists in his administration with a deputy defense secretary nominee who lobbied for Raytheon, Obama interrupted with a knowing smile on his face.

“Ahh, see,” he said, “I came down here to visit. See this is what happens. I can’t end up visiting with you guys and shaking hands if I’m going to get grilled every time I come down here.”

Pressed further by the Politico reporter about his Pentagon nominee, William J. Lynn III, Obama turned more serious, putting his hand on the reporter’s shoulder and staring him in the eye.

“Alright, come on” he said, with obvious irritation in his voice. “We will be having a press conference at which time you can feel free to [ask] questions. Right now, I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself to you guys – that’s all I was trying to do.”

During Obama’s second swearing for president he wouldn’t allow press photographers in to witness it and instead used White House photographers to take them and distribute the pictures to the media for print. Out of protest, three news agencies refused to print the picture.

During the campaign some reporters who dared questioned “the one” found themselves kicked off the plane. Carol Marin of the Sun-Times says “The press corps, most of us, don’t even bother raising our hands any more to ask questions because Obama always has before him a list of correspondents who’ve been advised they will be called upon that day.”

Obama has only been in office a few days and its begining to come out. Can he control his temper for 4yrs? Not likely. Will there be a backlash from the press and maybe finally they do some real investigative journalism and look into his past? Possibly. Will it be to late to save our country? Very real possibility.
