All things considered, Obama has quietly exhibited, if not flaunted an occasional outward, inwardness, maybe hoping to be a Peter Pan of sorts, who most will remember as a kind of lost boy, a man who can't or won't grow up. Nothing bad is his fault, but when there is a glimmer of pixie dust floating around with good news, surely those accomplishments are to his credit.
Reading an interesting piece the other day at a site, *coperwiki.org, these words seemed to jump off the page. Perhaps an explanation, why Barack Obama, a grown man with more power than probably anyone on Earth, when confronted with extreme problems of the day, he does not consult with the best and brightest minds available to him for guidance, but rather seeks out solace among people resembling, gossiping women on 'The View.'
People displaying Peter Pan Syndrome characteristics, "break societal norms to serve their own purposes and don't care much for the feelings and rights of others." What better example than the most recent tragic events of Benghazi, where four Americans, including a United States Ambassador, were brutally murdered. Rather than retaliating with a returned thrust of strength, showing this country's anger for such heinous actions, Obama chooses to pacify these killing monsters with a childlike 'lecture' of 'father-son discipline,' and 'let's not let it happen again.' And in doing so, believing in his mind this was a severe display of retribution for their crime. He then jets off to Vegas to resume the fun of campaign fund raising, and resumption of his fantasy lifestyle.
Mirroring his alter ego Peter Pan, Obama "wants all the power but is not willing to share the responsibilities, not ready to sacrifice and reject moral structures which are part of mature adulthood."
"People suffering from Peter Pan Syndrome are mentally fully developed adults who often carry professional activities requiring strong intellectual skills."
And identical to our current President, "They do not feel sorry for inappropriate actions but blame others for their shortcomings. This helps them take the focus away from their own limitations and vulnerabilities. They may resort to [alcohol] or drug abuse to escape from the challenges of daily life. They can be successful businessmen with a childlike view of the world. Their success often stems from their refusal to lead a 9 to 5 life."
No one, especially American citizens who have such deep love for this country, cherishes the thought of viewing their leader as 'fantasy from someone's pen.' However, reflecting on that 2008 gibberish about 'hope and change,' one can only conclude, the man was definitely on a course to spend more time with Wendy and Captain Hook, than focusing attention on complex adult problems smothering this country and its people.
In a few short weeks, Americans will decide whether they want to continue nocturnal escapades with an animated fictitious character, or take flight with a real living person whose vision captures reality,
This writer concludes, "All the time the Peter Pan overachiever is looking for another eternal child with whom he can run away."
Most readers of OUR fairy tale would mistakenly assume this Peter Pan would select his Michelle to fill that role, but if I were 'casting' this dream, my perfect Wendy for Pete, most likely would be someone even more narcissistic than our under-achiever in Chief.......Valerie Jarrett.
