    He is a polititian, of course he is a lair. So has every President before him been. Every person we vote into federal office is almost expected to lie to one degree or another. Not the "no honey that moo moo is sliming" self preservation lie, but the "I did not have sexual relations with that girl" lie, yes also self preserving as well, but on a grander scale and under oath.

    So expecting a politian to be truthful is like expecting them not to breath or pass gas.

    I'd say no. Pathological liars can't help it. His lies are calculated to achieve specifically desired goals.

    Narcissism and lying go together like truth and honor. An honorable man feels compelled to tell the truth even if it puts "him" in bad light. The Narcissist IS COMPELLED to lie to make himself look good because the truth WOULD show him for the shame he is. The Obamanation IS A NARCISSIST..... so he just lies to make himself look good.

    After rethinking it, you and he are right! It is purely strategy, and, like his other thought out plans, will eventually backfire!

    Yup, believing he can't help it leads to underestimation of the opponent.

    If you click the definition FL Airedale references, a "compulsive liar" lies because he can't help himself or out of habit. A "pathological liar" lies to manipulate and get his way.

    And again, you are right! One must admit, when he said he was going to fundamentally change America, he was telling the truth. So, he's not always, a liar!

    He has a motivation that is rational to him.

    Actually, the pathological lying is merely an annoying side symptom of his more serious underlying psychological problem: Narcissistic personality disorder.

    Narcissistic personality disorder is a condition in which people have an inflated sense of self-importance and an extreme preoccupation with themselves.


    Symptoms

    A person with narcissistic personality disorder may:

    •React to criticism with rage, shame, or humiliation

    •Take advantage of other people to achieve his or her own goals

    •Have excessive feelings of self-importance

    •Exaggerate achievements and talents

    •Be preoccupied with fantasies of success, power, beauty, intelligence, or ideal love

    •Have unreasonable expectations of favorable treatment

    •Need constant attention and admiration

    •Disregard the feelings of others, and have little ability to feel empathy

    •Have obsessive self-interest

    •Pursue mainly selfish goals

    Sound familiar to anyone?
