Rumors Surface About Obama's Mental Health

Jim Crum has forwarded a post from Ghost of a Flea that makes the following allegation:

"The October Surprise is Here: Obama is Hiding Mental History in His Medical Records...

"Information is leaking that Barack Obama was treated for mental related illnesses in the 70's and early 80's and may have been prescribed anti-psychotic medications. Schizophrenia is the main reported diagnosis with possible case severe depression...

"Yesterday the big talk in political chat rooms was Obama's yet to be released medical record. Obama may still need prescribed medications for mental related issues. It is suspected that he has not been taking his medications consistently because of several episode at recently campaign rallies...

"Barack Obama stands alone in the last three elections as the only candidate to not release medical records to the public.

"Senator Barack Obama released, in May, a one-page letter from his primary care doctor, who had not even seen him in 18 months. The Obama campaign has stated that no medical records will be released, the letter from the stating that he his currently in good heath will have to suffice..."

I have several times suspected that Barack Obama is a sociopath, and recently read a blog that asserted a noted psychiatrist has contemplated whether Senator Obama suffers from narcissistic personality disorder, which overlaps with sociopathy. This latest rumor will be dismissed, but none of those who dismiss will have seen Senator Obama's medical records. This has been a year of ex post rationalization, and wide-eyed willingness to be conned. It is still possible for the Electoral College to demand a review of Obama's records.

I think the Electoral College ought to demand a review of both Obama's birth information and his medical history. This election has made me appreciate the founding fathers' wisdom as well as the incompetence of popular discourse. It is unfortunate that the Electoral College has become a figurehead process.

Barring some Electoral College steps, I see 4 possibilities for the coming 4 years:

1. Obama's not as bad as we fear, and his election will be for the good. He could be the next Reagan. If the Fed raises interest rates in year one and shakes out the economy, then he may not be so bad.

2. He's a corrupt Chicago hack, protege of Mayor Daly, a crook, and so the country stagnates but not irremediably. We've had crooked presidents before.

3. He's a true believer, a follower of either his socialist Bill Ayers background or radical Islam or both, in which case we're in trouble

4. 3 + a mental case as Ghost of a Flea and others, including myself, have contemplated and rumored. In that case things will be worse than 3.

I am in somewhat of agreement...although I came to this conclusion back during the Germany trip. His manner on the stage...his absolute confidence...the conceived speech and ability to deliver...these are all hints of a narcissist. When a reporter has been lucky enough to corner him in an interview...he delivers quick clean-up comments and tries to move on. He doesn't like debate. He wants things handled cleanly. His childhood? Ever so hidden without any real friends. His mom basically had to dump him back to Grandma because of his inability to adapt to Indonesia.

So maybe someone eventually figures this out. But if you had a guy standing there in July of 2009...and you suddenly realize he is on ample medication and has severe mental illness...then what? The constitution wasn't written in the 1700s to fit a case like this, and to be honest...Joe Biden just isn't my character as a replacement for three years.

And the curious thing is that Hillary is sitting and kicking herself that none of this came out in December of last year.
