ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The president ofthe United Stateshas been revealed asnarcissistic. In his State of the Union address, I counted the first-person-singular word 35 times, at which point I stopped counting. The apex was when he said, “We don’t quit” and later amended that to “I don’t quit.” Narcissistsdon’tquit, even whenthey are wrong. That’s because a narcissist is never wrong.

However, President Obama was wrong to try to appease the jihadists and terrorists by closing the detention center at Guantanamo Bay. He was wrong when he appeased the unions by buying General Motors. He was wrong when he accused doctors of performing unnecessary surgery to become rich, when he accused the insurance industry of beinguniversally greedy and when he accused Wall Street banks of making dangerous loans while he appropriated billions for small banks so they could do the same. He is wrong when he tries to appeal to gays and transsexuals by opposing “don’t ask, don’t tell,” a change that undoubtedly would weaken the military.

I could go on, but heck - I quit.
