Ex-UK PM on Obama: "Narcissistic and Self-absorbed"

Maybe some of those shrinks who suddenly got busy remotely psychoanalyzing Trump can spare a moment for their Beloved Leader?

David Cameron thought Barack Obama was one of the 'most narcissistic, self-absorbed people' he had ever dealt with, his former strategy guru has claimed.

Steve Hilton tore into Mr Obama for thinking he was 'smarter' than everyone else in the room and he claimed that his old boss Mr Cameron would get wound up by the ex President's self absorption.

The former Downing Street adviser was highly critical of Mr Obama and said: 'My old boss, former British prime minister David Cameron, thought Obama was one of the most narcissistic, self-absorbed people he'd ever dealt with.

'Obama never listened to anyone, always thought he was smarter than every expert in the room, and treated every meeting as an opportunity to lecture everyone else. 

'This led to real-world disasters, like Syria and the rise of Isis.'

Cameron is denying this, inevitably. Obama still does have his cult of personality. But it's not hard to find examples of Obama boasting about his superiority to his own staff. And toward the end relations turned quite ugly as Obama tried to blame the UK for Syria.

There hasn't been a single honest media assessment of the dysfunctional administration and its incoherent foreign policy. Instead we've been showered with vague adjectives about Obama's genius even as Iran burns. There's been no serious discussions about why Obama couldn't keep a Secretary of Defense, why the planning for ObamaCare was so poor and what happened in Syria. Instead we get flattery.

The media is talking about running Oprah. But Obama was already Oprah. A narcissistic attention hog with racial grievances and a superiority complex.
