Hillary Clinton may suffer from a psychological condition that would raise questions about her fitness for office. In a book released today, respected political analyst Bay Buchanan reveals that Hillary bears all the classic symptoms of “clinical narcissism.”
According to the American Psychiatric Association, this condition includes feelings of superiority, self-importance and “fantasies of unlimited success, fame or power.”
“We are not talking about self-infatuation,” warns Buchanan, “we are talking about a clinical condition that could make her dangerously ill-suited to become President and Commander in Chief.”
In “The Extreme Makeover of Hillary Rodham Clinton,” Buchanan chronicles examples of Hillary’s instability, from her incoherent speeches as both student and First Lady, to her casual disregard for the law, to her ever-changing opinion on the Iraq war. These character flaws, writes Buchanan, make Hillary overly dependent on gurus and outside experts, with no internal compass to guide her — or the country.
Hillary’s sometimes robotic, sometimes excessively enthusiastic speeches should sound an alarm for her supporters. This emotional range of behavior, performed according to company, location or issue is not the mark of a solid and rationale leader for America.
Greek Mythology says Narcissus was a handsome young man who rejected the advances of a woman and as punishment, fell in love with his own reflection in a pool of water, which he eventually fell into and drowned. It’s important to the American people for the President to possess a strong family background but few deny that Hillary’s marriage to former President Bill Clinton appears tacked together merely for political purposes. She could perhaps have fallen prey to this disproportionate self-love.
Her shoddy legal history fits perfectly within what the American Psychological Association further defines as narcissistic by her “use of others to achieve [her] own ends, [a] lack of empathy, [and] behave[ing] arrogantly and haughtily, ‘above the law.’”
“Since she sees herself as both entitled to be in charge, and personally above the law,” writes Buchanan, “she has no problem changing her story to fit her goals.” Thus, says Buchanan, Hillary has embarked on an “extreme makeover” to appeal to American voters.
“As I studied Hillary from her early years through her days as First Lady, it became evident that it is not just her extreme liberal roots, but her personality that makes her such a dangerous person to be in the White House,” Buchanan says.
