Barack Obama, in his own mind, is incapable of formulating scenarios in which the United States, as a capitalist-based western democracy, succeeds.
If narcissism explains Obama's personal behavior, his relationships with others and his self-centered decision-making process, then the nexus of Marxism-Leninism, Black Nationalism and Islam defines him politically, philosophies antithetical to the survival of the Constitution and the American republic.
Frank Marshall Davis was introduced to Barack Obama by his maternal grandfather, Stanley Dunham, who was a close friend of Davis and saw him as a potential role model and father-figure for his grandson. Davis was also a US Communist Party member (number 47544) and became Obama's mentor in Hawaii during the 1970s, right up until Obama left for college at Occidental, which he attended on a scholarship, one likely reserved for foreign students. That would explain why he roomed and associated with foreign students and, incidentally, may not have registered with Selective Service.
In a PBS "Frontline" documentary called "The Choice 2012," former Obama roommate Sohale Siddiqi stated "I didn't consider him American. He seemed like an international individual."
