In a prior post http://obotomy.blogspot.com/2014/11/revisiting-personality-of-barack-obama.html I stated that the one word that describes Barack Obama is "grandiose." I would like to reassert that choice is the best one word description. Yes, BHO is narcissistic but his grandeur is the father of his narcissism. We would all be better off if he were just an empty suit. Unfortunately, the grandeur is at work even when the cameras are pointed elsewhere. I don't recall who said that a man who believes his own bullshit is a dangerous man but I have to endorse that crudely-stated aphorism. Barry Soetoro has created an all-powerful persona and that persona believes in his own divinity with every breath he takes.
In summary, "grandiose" describes Barack Obama more thoroughly than "narcissistic." I felt the need to clarify my contradiction without sounding like one of those blowhards who falls back on quoting himself. Speaking of which, did anyone else endure the SOTU all the way to its conclusion? How do you wrap up a rambling pile of nonsense and insults and self-praise? You quote someone famous if not infamous. Who did Barack Obama select for this epiiog? Himself of course! Shakespeare, Aristotle, Lincoln, Jesus...Nix! The president quoted Barack Obama.
Grandiose or narcissistic? Grandeur or narcissism? Stuffed suit or empty suit? These are the sorts of questions that will follow Barack Obama into history.
