So Obama is an out of control Narcissist?

Those 62 million votes aren't going to help much with that.

Funny, a narcissist makes people around them "turn to clay" but the only people Obama did that to was "the blacks". "The whites" in fact saw through that and are just going to be bitter for the next 8 years. Whatever, the person that wrote that is clearly a true racist or someone at the RNC doing a very good job of pretending to be.

"Let's call a spade a spade (no pun intended."--I suggest you look up the etymology of "calling a spade a spade," you moron.

Check out the DSM for the actual description of narcissistic personality disorder. Superficial likeability masking deep insecurity, grandiosity, shallow attention span, manipulativeness, a lack of empathy for others, on and on. These traits add up to a very potentially destructive individual. Sound familiar? It would be simpler if they just said, "See Bush, George W."

And these guys think Obama has NPD? Too funny.
