It is certainly apparent at this point in the history of our nation that our president is suffering from an obsession. He is totally obsessed with his agenda of health care for each and every American. On the face of this personality quirk it could seem to have a very noble purpose. However the pure dimension of the obsession would seem to suggest something deeper is working within his mind. It seems there are many problems that he’s facing including massive national debt, disapproval of the electorate, etc, etc.

Regardless of public opinion he just can’t let go of this issue. It’s like he’s on a mission he feels deeply in his heart. It’s like the old country minister preaching his sermon. He’ll spout hell and brimstone until the entire congregation shouts AMEN!!! Is AMEN the proper term or is UNCLE more like what he wants to hear. I’ve seen parodies of folks with OCD on TV. Detective Monk was one of these OCD people. I’ve even read an entire hub on this subject by fellow hubber Pamela99. A quote from her hub is below,

According to Mayo Clinic, the obsessive thoughts have themes like the fear of germs and to ease the contamination they start the compulsive hand washing to the degree their hands are chapped and sore. Despite these efforts, the thoughts keep returning, which leads to more compulsive behavior.”

I will link her hub at the bottom of this hub, but I think the evidence is mounting rapidly that POTUS has an OCD or OCPD problem. Folks we truly have problems if our POTUS is distracted with this one problem with the exception of all others, i.e. terrorist trials in NYC, terrorist attacks on airplanes, national debt and deficits, unemployment at nearly 10%. This man claims health care will solve all these problems and we all know it’s not rational!!!!!!!!!

Our common sense tells us it just won’t solve all the world’s problems to install a big government solution to our health care situation.

I would suggest a leave of absence for treatment, but that would mean Joe Biden would be acting POTUS. Can you imagine the deep doo doo in which that would immerse us??? Then if something happened to Joe in the interim the next in line would be The Baroness of Botox. Queen Nancy herself would bring nothing but tragedy to our shores. We are really between a rock and a hard place!!! It doesn’t get any better if something happens to The Baroness then Prince Harry is next in line can you imagine the depravity!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t know what to do. I’m at a loss for solutions, besides heartfelt prayer for God’s mercy to be upon us. Maybe we should have a Tea Party!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great hub, Tom. We really are in a pickle because if Obama was impeached and we were left with Biden, we might as well move to Canada. We just have to hope that the November elections speak for themselves loud and clear. Personally, I think that Obama is obsessed because his ego is the largest part of his psyche and he doesn't understand criticism or except a difference of opinion. He is a world unto himself and he truly doesn't care what the majority of Americans want. If his health care agenda is passed the government will be running the show and that is his goal.

Great points you made here. I agree, it seems like he has just about lost his mind and only cares about passing his healthcare bs. He ought to get his head out of Pelosi's ass and focus on jobs because if nobody has a job, how can we be expected to give all our earnings to the fed!?

I think his public behavior is a clear OCD manifestation. He is also obsessed with radicals.

the whole Demoncratic Party is complicit in putting this treasonous jerk in office. so, I would think a special election would be in order. Are you aware that when nancy Pelosi sent nomination papers to the 50 states she omitted the words "he is constitutionally eligible" on 49 of the nominatio0n papers and sent the full nomination papers to only one state, Hawaii. probably because they knew he wasn't "qualified' since to be a "natural born citizen" requires 2 citizen parents, not just one.

The birther question is best served in another forum like SCOTUS.

Tom, An excellent hub. I think he might be obsessed because his actions don't make sense to a rational thinking person and its tied to his gigantic ego. If he were impeached, then Biden and Heaven forbid something would happen to him, it would be Pelosi! Nightmares of nightmares....... His public behavior is a lot different now that he has had a year of dismal failure.

He's still obsessed with health care. It's like an obsessive hand washer. Go back into the house to see if the oven in left on.

I wonder how much beer he really drinks he even had a beer party as an excuse for a teaching moment. It's really OCD behavior.

I see him as determined, and I think it's because of his ideology. Back in the 60's the Black Muslims were demanding free health care - as well as many other things they've achieved, such as a rewrite of history.

note: there's something wrong with my shift key, so the lack of capitalization for titles and proper names is by no means a indicator of disrespect that. thank you.

with all due respect, i think you are overreacting.

the president is championing his health care initiatives because they are important to him, not because of some kind of disorder. it's just the same as any other president championing a goal of their administration, like president roosevelt (teddy, not f.d.r.) and national parks.

you're also disregaurding the fact that the obama administration has put so many other more immediatly important issues first: the economy, conflicts overseas, etc.

i also don't think he has a giagantic ego, but that's a matter of opinion.

and shelia, i'm a bit confused about your comment. seeing as president was born in 1961, i doubt that the politics of "back in the 60's" much effected his politics, not to mention the politics of "black muslims" seeing as president obama is christian.

There is a thin line between determination and OCD behavior. An OCD patient may seem determined to keep his hands very clean but if it's not a rational need then it's OCD behavior.

First let me adress the ego question I made no ego comment.

I can't equate the creation of Natioal Parks with 1/6 of the US economy. I am not aware of any public protest against National Parks being created.

As for your comment to sheila b, Barrack Obama practiced Islam as his first religion he now proclaims to be a Christian.

He has a different World view than any other POTUS I've seen in my lifetime. Every problem in the world can be solved by a take over of health care by the federal government. Climate change, nuclear proliferation, American economy, global disease, natural disasters, all will be solved by health care taken over by our federal government.

Maybe the problems is greater than just OCD, his actions are not compulsive they are planned out, it's a deep rooted belief that he is above all, and that his beliefs are warranted by his position as the leader of the free world.

Narcissim characterized by tendencies toward grandiose ideas is a problem especially in a president, it has a tendency to lead to dictatorship. This is only my opinion, but it's something to consider. Good Hub.

MPG Narratives,

I feel your pain. We in the USA have our problems with this government. Total out of control spending. I've heard it said the only difference between our politicians and a drunken sailor is that a drunken sailor spends his own money.

Excellent Hub, my brother. I agree that the President is sick.

Probably sick, but at the least disturbed. I'm sure he's disturbing.

Appreciate Life,

Obama may treat his wife and children fine, but he sucks as a president and his approval ratings are plummeting to nearly below 40%!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for your comment.

I know about OCD as a loved one has it, so I've educated myself about it.That in fact, was why I became a Monk fan. Anyway - you definitely have a point here Tom - absolutely something to consider. And a very informative, useful Hub! Thank you for writing it! Carol
