Ba-Racket Obama Revisited

How dishonest is President Obama?

Lawyers are more trustworthy, that’s how:

Business Insider reports that more than one Chrysler senior creditor has corroborated Thomas Lauria’s allegation that the Obama administration threatened them with public attacks if they didn’t surrender their contractual rights. One of their sources says that the Obama team comprises some of the worst “ends justify the means” people he’s ever encountered:

Creditors to Chrysler describe negotiations with the company and the Obama administration as “a farce,” saying the administration was bent on forcing their hands using hardball tactics and threats.

Conversations with administration officials left them expecting that they would be politically targeted, two participants in the negotiations said. …

The sources, who represent creditors to Chrysler, say were taken aback by the hardball tactics that the Obama administration employed to cajole them into acquiescing to plans to restructure Chrysler. One person said described the administration as the most shocking “end justifies the means” group they have ever encountered. Another characterized Obama was “the most dangerous smooth talker on the planet- and I knew Kissinger.” Both were voters for Obama in the last election.

One participant in negotiations said that the administration’s tactic was to present what one described as a “madman theory of the presidency” in which the President is someone to be feared because he was willing to do anything to get his way. The person said this threat was taken very seriously by his firm.

I don’t think Obama is crazy; I think his ideology is mad. When we covered this the other day, I expected the later details to soften the edges of the story. Turns out, they’re sharper than ever.

Get this: he growls like a Doberman at American business executives, yet genuflects before Saudi royalty like a submissive cur.

I do not like him Sam-I-am.

    Every day he inches a little bit further from narcissist and creeps ever so slowly to psychopath. If I haven’t recommended it before, I recommend a book called “Snakes in Suits” and “Without Conscience” both by Robert D Hare. “Snakes in Suits” had a co-author, Paul Babiak.

    As a matter of fact, if you take hop skip and jump through the Psychopathy Checklist – Revised, a product of Robert D Hare, Ph. D., and you can see an outline of it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychopathy_Checklist-Revised, it may give you pause.
