The kind of lies an immature, narcissistic president tells

"Tell me you love me!"

**Posted by Phineas

Oh, please. Don’t insult my intelligence:

Every night before he goes to sleep, the president of the United States reads 10 letters from the pile of 20,000 sent to him by Americans every day. Sometimes, he writes back. He’s even, on occasion, included a check.

“It’s not something I should advertise, but it has happened,” President Barack Obama told reporter Eli Saslow, author of the new book, “Ten Letters: The Stories Americans Tell Their President.”

I’m not sure what the bigger whopper is here: that Obama plays “secret Santa” to some of the poor, downtrodden folks in danger of losing their homes or with medical bills they can’t pay, or that a guy with an ego the size of the Grand Canyon is reluctant to talk about it.

Consider the first choice. Are you really going to tell me these people have received personal checks from the President of the United States and have stayed quiet about it? They didn’t tell their relatives? They and their relatives didn’t tell the local news? No one at the bank who cashed the check told anyone “Hey, I just cashed a check from Obama?” Word never got to the national news networks, who’d love to carry a feel-good story about their God-King?

Everyone stayed mum?

Sure. Uh-huh. I buy that. How much for the bridge, too? 

Or how about the next one, that he’s reluctant to talk about it? Barack Obama, humble? Reluctant to take credit? The man who shunned the Democratic convention hall so he could make his acceptance speech in an outdoor arena before Grecian columns, like some demigod? The man who couldn’t be bothered to appear in person at ceremonies commemorating the fall of the Berlin Wall, but sent  a video message that focused on him? Who’s famously thin-skinned about criticism and makes almost every speech on himself? Who’s sure he’s made all the right choices? Who had to have a star-studded White House birthday party –including a conga line– while the economy is still in a tank??

This Barack Obama, who probably has narcissistic personality disorder?

Yeah, you bet. And unicorns are real, too.

Look, if this turns out to be true –that Obama sent checks, not just wrote back– I’ll admit my error and apologize.

But I just don’t believe it; I think the man is lying and that his childish need for ego-stroking made him do it.

    Hot dang! I’m finally gonna get me some of that free Obama money! Where’s my pen and paper!

  2. Mark1957 says:

    The letters with the salutation “Dear Shithead,” are the ones that I wrote.

  3. Lorica says:

    Outta whose check book is he writing these so called checks?? If it is the President then is he using our taxes?? This man is so full of crap. Sooo Barack Obama narc’d off the President?? Is that the kinda garbage he wants us to believe?? Bull!! More electioneering from the Master of Ceremony of our present circus. Now if there were just a truckload fewer clowns, hopefully in 2012!! – Lorica

  4. Sefton says:

    The other 19,990 letters are asking him to resign.
    In a number of colorful ways no doubt.

  5. Yorkshire says:

    If he did write a check, he probably deducted for the return stamp. Or maybe he writes only to the ones with stamped return envelope.

  6. The Watcher says:

    He’s even, on occasion, included a check.

    Written on his personal account? The one that he fills with his paycheck? The one the TAXPAYERS ARE PROVIDING HIM WITH FROM THEIR TAX PAYMENTS? Why’s he bothering?

    My first reaction is similar to Phineas’, relating it to all the girlfriends “pre-marriage” that he had to have had, all the school friends all the way back to grade school – they just don’t exist! I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the “history” of this person’s life is not the real one because those things can be checked out, and none has ever checked out. Not even from his college days!

    My second reaction is that this is as truthful as anything else he says – and that is that it is 99% sure that he’s never done it, 1% possible that he did it once sometime in the last 20 years.

    And my last reaction is, it is so sad the man will never know the joy of giving of himself for the pure pleasure of giving, instead of for the possibility that he may be able to later call in this chit.

    I do not discount the possibility that this is a contrived “controversy”, to be resolved by the fawning LSM discovering a few checks that have been closely and silently held for strange reasons. These will be of recent origin, but not obviously so without some forensic analysis. The thrust of the LSM story will be how badly the crazy righties treat Dear Leader, when he is truly such a humble, generous guy. Those who profess not to believe will be cast among those wondering why Zero’s late-revealed “birth certificate” is such an obvious fake. I suspect it’s more theater for the lame-brained 52% who voted Zero into office.

  9. You know, I’ve heard the One has mailed out bills to the American public, called taxes – I mean dhimmi- but this is a new one to me. I wonder if the IRS taxes “Obama money”…

  10. Carlos says:

    Is “Obama money” anything like Monopoly money? I know Tax-cheat Timmy prints up lots of that…

  11. Brontefan says:

    First, this president is possibly the worst narcissist ever to occupy the WH because he MUST be on camera or on the air–DAILY. He has to have plenty of vacations, date nights, special dinners, and finesses campaign trips at the expense of the American taxpayers. Not to mention the Billions he has thrown in the toilet via the Dept. of Energy to pay off his political cronies! His house is in trust, and he has plenty funneled to him for various events. No one is surprised that Hollywood is supporting his Marxist agenda because they have been known to hold fund raising dinners for Daniel Ortega! But to honestly believe he has sent money to any average American is a bit too over-the-top. I mean, this “genius” believes he deserves to be dictator—and has admitted to circumventing Congress—which is clearly a violation of his oath of office. He signed ObamaCare without reading it—NO ONE READ IT! which is also unconscionable. And he is not encouraging the OWS to be pro-active which may turn into violence. I wonder how many presidents have called their opponents “enemies?” And Hank Williams Jr. can be fired for making an analogy but Kathy Bates calls to Obama to “stand up on his hind legs…” implying he moves like some four-legged animal—and that is acceptable? Wow! Has the dictatorship already begun? Are we still allowed to criticize the president & his party?

    he’s perpetuating the lie here….at about the 35sec mark.

  13. Perhaps, Obama is using the money he made on the sale of his books which we the tax payers purchased to present as gifts to foreign visitors. Why is it that the Democratic party has to support immature Momma boys,neglected by their fathers, who develope evil exaggerated human egos? Obama is an immature, self centered dangerous individual. When he finally learns that the American population no longer is buying his huge pile of bull crap he will complete his goal of treason. To the highest bidder he will sell out the U.S. Will it be China or the Islamic Brotherhood?
