That is interesting. If it is true, then that gives the rest of us hope - good to see that he is human.
That's not depression. That's cowardice. Hiding behind a disease, so now everybody have to feel sorry for him, instead of cursing him for all the crap he's done !
there's an easy solution.
Read the frigging constitution. All these problems he has have NOTHING to do with his powers as Chief Executive, and EVERYTHING to do with his allegiance to his party instead of allegiance to the Constitution.
Although, i'm not one to poo-poo depression, the article didn't really say he had clinical depression, it just sort of implies that he is depressed. These are, in English common vernacular, different things.
I figured someone would research this, but no...so I will start doing so...
Ive been in the U.S for 18 mths ,and Im depressed too.
Maybe theres somethin in the water
....ahhhaaa...the truth revealed...

Is it true?
My condolences to Mr.Obama.
That disease (depression) could have communicated to him from other Americans, eversince he became their President.
No. The Onion is a satirical humor site. This time it overstepped itself. This is scurrilous bull shXt.
Here's a sample from Onion News--http://www.theonion.com/

Oh Bunk. it's not depression, it's GOP syndrome.
These GOP are trying to ruin everything for everybody.
Look at em!!!
They take FOREIGN money to smear Dems. They take their money to FOREIGN countries to avoid taxes.
They move their businesses to FOREIGN lands to increase profit/decrease responsability.
And then they scream USA USA USA
It's crazy on a stick. And complete and total TREASON. THEY are not Americans---they are TRAITORS.

"They take FOREIGN money to smear Dems. They take their money to FOREIGN countries to avoid taxes.

They move their companies to increase their profits, your damn right they do.
Companies are not in business to supply jobs they are in business to make money.
The US is one of very few Countries that tax businesses that operate outside of its borders on a deferral system.
The company makes money in Germany and is taxed at a lesser rate and when that money is brought back to the US its taxed again.
So why bring the money back here?
I know that concept of profit goes way over your head. But know that it is YOU and DEMOCRATS driving business and JOBS away.
Now wait. Companies are in business to make money, not supply jobs?
Well now, isn't that a sign of thinking ahead and the greater good. Not. That's absolute stupidity. To ignore workers and households by business is to cut off its own head. There is no reason for business unless there are households to support it and workers to keep it going.
The greed involved in that concept, regardless of any political affiliation is ultimate stupidity. You bring down American households, you bring down your business. Just watch and see.
"Now wait. Companies are in business to make money, not supply jobs?"
You're actually arguing that I'm wrong?
Go ahead, give it your best shot...this should be good
I made my point quite clearly. Big business loses if their only objective is to make money. I'm done with this one.
Thats in your best interest.
This was your point'
"Well now, isn't that a sign of thinking ahead and the greater good. Not. That's absolute stupidity. To ignore workers and households by business is to cut off its own head. There is no reason for business unless there are households to support it and workers to keep it going."
If a business does not make money then there is no job for employees.
Business shuts down and unemployment is the result.
Your point is, well, I think people can figure it out all by themselves.
Ahh, yes. Hence the reason why Walmart has endeared itself to employees and the public. Also the reason why there will be over a million foreclosures on American homes this year.
Yes, you definitely win. And Americans DEFINITELY lose.
this is eye opening, been reading the links provided?
is this true? any one confirming this? Bethesda Naval Hosp? His Physician?...would be interesting to know.
hmmm...can not handle the job? not good at all.
Some random person diagnosed Bush with depression and bipolar disorder during his presidency too. Good for a laugh, but not much else.
I don't think so. His job is tiring, but he has humor - so this is difficult to believe.
As Ralph said The Onion is the equivalent of Saturday Night Live in seriousness. It's comedy. Check out The Onion Movie.
He should be depressed understanding how many Americans have been financially ruined after the melt down, while money machines continue to show record profits, even amidst the highest number of foreclosures America has seen (over a million this year).
However, I rather doubt he is depressed about his fellow Americans. Congress and the money machines sure aren't.
"Obama suffering from severe depression..."
Among other things.
I would not be surprised if Obama is in fact battling depression; he inherited a total mess, he tried all he could think of to stop the bleeding (and it didn’t work as he would have hoped), he is under pressure from both parties as November elections are just around the corner.
What do you expect? Sure he may very well be depressed and it shows in his lack of energy and less than convincing enthusiasm.
"he tried all he could think of to stop the bleeding (and it didn’t work as he would have hoped)"
Isn't that weird?
Who knew you couldn't spend your way out of a recession?
Oh yeah, EVERYBODY KNEW THAT. Everybody but democrats that is.
Oh, just tell me that Obama started the financial mess. Just tell me that Obama started the war
Democrats started the financial mess.
Obama is continuing something he said he would stop.
Blaming Bush is no longer working.
Maybe we should considere Sarah Palin as the answer to our problems; at least she has great leggs, so nobody could say she is not qualified
And what about the 2 wars that brough America near total collapse? Blaming it on Bush would be out of the question for you I suppose
Consider Sarah Palin all day if you want, I don't.
Do you have anything other than "blame Bush" and continue ruining the economy?
I don't think you do...
I am waiting for you to come up with the solution, so plese DO
I'm waiting for you to come up with a solution.
The solution has been tried and proven to work.
I won't tell you what it is because you want big government to provide for you.
It would be a waste of my time to try and convince you and I'm not into wasting my time.
I want big government to provide for me? This is the joke of the day and sorry to say, you just don't know what you are talking about when you say such things
I would say that that article is crap. I wouldn't put any stock in it at all. And anyway, anyone can be depressed temporarily, maybe he was having a bad week. It doesn't mean he's sick. If you had to carry the weight of the well-being of millions of people and deal with the guilt of a bad decision that would affect an entire nation, don't you think you would experience some down weeks? Gossip, I say!
So what if he is on antidepressants???!! Big flippin'deal! Nobody would make a mountain out of a mole hill if he took high blood pressure medicine. OH!! Or how about antihistimines for allergies? Duh.
Why do so many not consider depression an illness? It's like any other disorder, just interference in the balance of the central nervous system. Please, get a life. If Mr. Obama is on antidepressants, good deal. He'll function better in life.
I would be depressed also if I was handed an eight year mess, from an ass who took the most powerful country in the world. That was left with a deficit by Bill Clinton, Even with his faults he proved that it is possible to make a difference. and withing less than a year have a complete Idiot. (who by the way has vanished, like no other president I've ever seeen.) For sure he is waiting for the right time to write his memoirs. (and make some more money) probably on the subject of WOMD. (ha..!!) never for the puppet handler will probably be non excistant by the time that comes around. How people can even think that this fool was entitled to the responsibility of President is baffling. And people still believe in this complete morron. I could almost imagine what The first Black President of the country must be going through. Because the powers that be and I don't mean the people we think we know as being politicians. I mean the real Power we will never know controls almost the whole world. This has got to be an enormous amount of stress for anybody. And anybody that believes otherwise must be either blind or Stupid.
And why can't big Government provide??? many other countries have proven that it is possible. As a matter fact if it were possible for the idiot to cheat the voting system and create a war on the claim of weapons of mass destruction. with a country that had nothing to do with 9/11. and people find that ok. then why not health insurance from the government. Members of congress leave with full pay, a mass amount of pension, and full medical benefits. If you don't notice that perhaps we have more problems than what this subject is about.
Because the government does not have money.
All money government has is confiscated from those that produce and given to those who don't.
Its not the governments money except through the threat of legal action.
It really isn't that hard to figure out.
Jiberrish??? Don't tell me your a Democrat??? and the cartoon describes you to the tee dark glasses to represent your blindness.
And please point out the jibberish....I can't wait to hear this....because the majority of the population see's the same thing or jibberish I see....!!!!!! or are the WOMD something you have absolute knowledge of? Attacking and spending billions makes sense to you just to make Halliburton wealthier, makes alot of sense to you RIGHT???????? wouod you like a cup of coffee????? or a wiff of Roses???
"And please point out the jibberish"
Here you go

Blind, stupid and uninformed, all at the same time
Thats not a nice thing to say about Bolt1951.
I bet you thought I wrote that didn't you?
He is on your side.
Any other comments?
No it isn't hard to figure out your right. The Government doesn't have the money but I bet you Halliburton has plenty, along with Exxon mobile, and a whole lot more ....some of these CEO's get hundreds of millions of dollars just as bonuses??? and we have no money but we have money for fake wars.
beside copying and pasting...do you have anything real to say? because my time is made up of what is called reality. so if you have nothing real or truthful. Then perhaps your idea's are as meaningless as your opinions.
And by the way Jim, if your gonna use a picture use a real one.
like one of what you really look like, for there is nothing to hide.
Oh!!! now I see what the problem is sorry i didn't read the whole forum. You like hiding behind makeshift words of knowledge and you are nothing but a hollow shell of a human being who's specialty is being full of air....I am so sorry please forgive me...for not understanding.
Aren't we all...
Look at how fast being President ages a person. I wouldn't want the job.
It's so bad in here I have no clue hoe's talking to whom, and by the way I have no side, know why because there is no such thing...didn't the bush years teach anything...??? Florclosures well now that's a subject I know about, that and the Auto business...if you really knew how both those businesses worked you would super cautious. the preditory lending thing is one to remember because I saw it coming about ten years before it happened. it was as predictable as the bush Presidency. Simple as pie, when you know what your looking for.
Was Phillis Dillar talking to me about sarcasm run in my family?
perhaps a little schooling would help along with some surgery.
to think that I went vietnam for morrons to like yourself to survive ? and make believe you understand things. now being a sniper and doing some of the things I had to do takes what most of you have no idea.... so spare me and go elsewhere because with me I havee faced danger in the face.... so most of you know what you can do with your opinions. If not I'll be glad to show you .
And I'm outta here the intelligence is giving me a headache.
You folks take care and don't for get your David Dukes outfit........see ya...Aholes
