Let's cut through all of Barack Obama's baloney. His speech on the economy at Georgetown University on Tuesday was a testament to the massive ego of a callow leader with grandiose pretensions bordering on megalomania.I'm stunned. This is The American Spectator after all, the high-quality journalistic institution that couldn’t stop itself from accusing the Clintons of committing various rapes and murders as well as running a very profitable cocaine distribution center out of a small Mena, Arkansas, airport. And here’s Hillyer pulling his megalomania punch. What gives?
So I asked Dr. Dave:
Why only bordering? I wonder why Hillyer shied away from citing full-blown megalomania. I wonder what clinical criteria were met that kept Obama (so far) on one side of megalomania and not on the other. I find this all very intriguing.Just think about it. Hillyer had three options: (1) Not mention megalomania at all. (2) Assert that Obama suffers from borderline megalomania. (3) Assert that Obama suffers from full-blown megalomania. Let’s assume Hillyer’s familiarity with and inerrant application of the current diagnostic criteria for megalomania. At some point, Hillyer determined that Obama’s actions did not quite reach the level of a confirmed diagnosis -- unfortunately, he doesn‘t tell us why.
I’d really like to know: Why do the President’s grandiose pretensions and delusions of power fail to satisfy DSM-IV-R criteria for megalomania?*
Dr. Dave’s response: “Sometimes I think you think way TOO much, Grace.”
Or maybe I think way TOO much for the crap published in The American Spectator.
*Of course I’ve sent an email to non-Dr. Hillyer for an explanation.
