Did the White House Just Schedule an Off-the-Record Meeting Between Obama and a Psychiatrist?
9 Oct 13 | Xzins

Posted on 10/09/2013 5:33:35 PM PDT by xzins

According to liberal source "Politico", President Obama held a meeting on October 8, with "conservative journalists" Charles Krauthammer, Paul Gigot, Kathleen Parker, Byron York, and Robert Costa. The meeting was described as "off-the-record". When questioned about that meeting the next evening by Bret Baier of Fox News, Krauthammer gave no real information.

This is worrisome news because Krauthammer graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1975 with his MD and was board certified in psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in 1984. As recently as 2009, President Obama called upon Krauthammer's medical stature, inviting Krauthammer to a signing ceremony involving bioethics. Krauthammer, who has in the past given his medical support for euthanasia, declined the invitation citing differences on cloning.

The president has displayed alarmingly bad judgment in recent months. Bizarre equivocation is the only way to describe Obama's disastrous approach to Syria after reports of WMDs atrocities. Saving face through the intervention of Vladimir Putin, the President afterwards pushed his media teams to retell the actual events of his Syrian embarrassment in larger than life, self-congratulatory terms.

The list of unusual decisions involving the so-called, government shutdown continues to grow. He has ordered WWII vets barricaded out of their Washington DC memorial. He has ordered the Vietnam Wall barricaded to prevent Vietnam Vets from visiting. He has allowed illegal aliens to use the very locations he has forbidden the veterans to use. He has ordered no benefits be paid for heroes killed overseas, and just today had to reverse that position following a huge, public outcry. The timing of these horrendous, public relations stumbles amidst a shutdown debate has pro-Obama pundits sprinting to cover for him, and even has his friends scratching their heads over his bizarre decision making. A plunging approval rating suggests the American people are beginning to see the unusual behavior on the part of the president.

Petulance describes the Obama refusal to recognize that the House of Representatives, also an elected body in the American governmental system, is only doing its job when it says they do not want to increase his credit card limit. Slinging charges of extortion and blackmail at a governmental body doing its job of controlling his exploding credit card spending, the president again is alarmingly petty, overwrought, isolated, and ominously excitable .

These are just a few of the oddities making one wonder why, under cover of "conservative journalism", the White House invited a psychiatrist to an "off-the-record" meeting. Such a meeting allows both plausible deniability, and the reliability of medical confidentiality. Even if leaked, the decision to use "conservative journalists" as the cover would provide an immediate counter to what Obama’s inner circle could call an attack by political enemies. Since the meeting was "off-the-record", there is also no means of verifying any "off-the-record" private sessions with the president.

In short, the White House invited a brilliant psychiatrist. The president has been making odd, obstinate, embarrassing, and unfathomable decisions.

The Constitution provides in the 25th Amendment, Section. 4. "Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President."

Well, I’ve been saying on here, Facebook and to my mother, I think the occupant of the White Hut is clinically insane, IMHO, and we need to invoke the 25th Amendment.

His behavior has been absolutely ODD!

I don’t care who you are, it’s bizarre some of the things being done to people during the shutdown.

Nah...I just see this guest list as an attack on the tea party - as none of those “so called conservatives” are really conservative (anymore).

As much as I think Obama is unhinged, I hardly think he would invite a psychiatrist in through the front door and certainly one known to be conservative (supposedly).

Obama would be more likely to ask a shrink (of his own choosing) to analyze the thinking of the electorate and the mindset of the congress. Will “they” really go all the way in opposing “ME”?

This is a provocative article though and certainly food for thought. Thanks for posting it.

Agree, he actually states certain things and then he will state the opposite or he will state something and then have no idea how whacked out he is.
I.E.
Increasing the debt limit will not put us into debt, HUH the man is nuts but then he will state he will not agree to what the GOP is asking but then 2 mins later will state how he wants to work with the GOP.

He has no idea about any issues, even Benghazi he will not state nor is he asked if he went to bed knowing the attacks were taking place.

His wife will tell us to eat healthy and then she is seen on camera eating fries, fried food and ice cream.

A leak by a regular shrink would be lights out.

But, a leak by a conservative could be shrugged off as a political attack.

In short, the White House invited a brilliant psychiatrist.

And four others: a columnist, a journalist, political commentator, and a political reporter. Obama is not about to admit or confess to mental illness, or subject himself to public examination. A malignant narcissist never sees the pain he inflicts on others or feels empathy. To suggest that Zero has arranged a private interview to contemplate his recent behavior is hilarious.

He did have the need to mention that he is not always correct and Michelle reminds him of that. Normal people never have to admit something that is so obvious. At any rate, he could have a Psychiatrist visit at numerous facilities where just a handful of people would know.

Unless you are trying to imply that someone else is forcing the prezzy. We all know Obama is not making the decisions anyway. They should be checking out the Lizard Queen.

Obama is a psychopath. He is not crazy. He knows full well what he is doing.

Psychiatrists are usually stumped as to how to treat someone who is not crazy.

Can't give him drugs because the problem is in his soul.

He has no conscience.

Syphilis has caught up with him. It’s the most common disease today among gays. The coke ain’t helping either.

On a more serious note I believe that someone on the inside brought in Krauthammer to observe the LOTUS under the guise of it being an interview with conservative commentators. Only Krauthammer knew the real reasons and his professional integrity keeps his diagnosis under wraps and for only those in the inner circle who are concerned

Sociopaths do not voluntarily consult psychiatrists. Anyway, Krauthammer is not a psychotherapist. Anyway, therapist or not, one meeting is not enough to achieve anything. There can be no doubt that Obama is already consuming a complicated mix of psychoactive drugs, some by prescription and some apparently not, and he has access to the best medical and mental health care in the world, so why bring Krauthammer in?

I actually think this is who and what he is, he's just been hiding it for too long, and his veneer has worn through.

He's always slipped on occasion and shown his face, particularly when he's actually, been....you know....challenged. Now, as his fraud and pretense to being a competent manager who knows how to accomplish things crumbles, he can't stop himself from being the thin skinned fool he is.
