The Supreme Court's questioning of his administration on the Health Care Mandate and the Catholic Church's strong and vociferous challenge to the President's mandate that the Catholic Church provide free contraception through the Church's self-insurance policies both constitute the one thing that President Obama cannot stand and will not tolerate, one more "father figure" abandoning him! Psychologically the President cannot tolerate that abandonment from the Supreme Court or the Church's bishops as it further pierces his heart over the resentment he holds toward his father and the specialness accorded to him by his mother to overcompensate for that loss.
We all know that the President, and God bless him for this, grew up without a strong father figure in his home and that he was also an only child whose mother and grandmother doted on him and made him feel like king. He didn't have to contend with siblings and I am sure that he received from his mother and grandmother all he ever wanted and they could provide. He was the man of the house from childhood and being so made him one arrogant only child.
The spoiled child syndrome continues to guide him today in politics. There are many examples of his "know it all mentality and that he knows better than anyone else" that proves this to be true, but I would like to highlight just two examples:
1. His arrogance toward the Catholic Church in terms of mandating the Catholic Church to provide in the Church's self-insurance policies artificial contraception, sterilization and abortifacients. I think the president truly believes that if he were head of the Catholic Church, he would make a better bishop or pope and thus has usurped the pope and bishop's teaching authority in the areas of faith and morals and substituted his own better perspective on sexual issues. He really wants to control the Catholic Church because he really believes he knows what is best for Catholics. I suspect he has a delusion that in mandating the Catholic Church to do things his way, that he is offering the Catholic Church his brilliant leadership.
2. His comments about the Supreme court in the last two days but also a couple of years ago at the State of the Union Address say so much about this only child and fatherless president and how he perceives the world and himself, especially anyone who would get in the way of his only-child specialness. President Obama wants to mandate his way because he really believes that his way is the right way because of the god-like position he held in his little nuclear family and the lack of a father figure to temper a child pampered and adulated by his mother and grandmother. President Obama's speech is filled with "I's" and "mine" rather than "we" and "ours" especially as he refers to those who work in his administration and his perspective.
Psychologists tell us that a spoiled child as an adult can be angry and depressed. The person will also throw tantrums on small issues and also resorts to manipulative and controlling behavior.
From my own observation of our president and how he speaks (always with a teleprompter to keep him balanced) he seems to be animated by a very deep seated but "controlled" anger and his desire to make the world right because he is the one who knows the right way.
Our president needs prayers and therapy. Our President's therapy will be greatly enhanced by having only one term as president.
