Mike Whitney wrote the following in his OEN article regarding Obama's presidency:

That perfectly summarizes Obama; an empty gourd who never had any intention of fulfilling his promises, who has utter disdain for the fools that voted for him, and who finds it as easy to kill a man, his family and his kids, as to swat a fly on his forearm.

Whitney's article speaks mainly to Obama's international work and his sociopathic methods of dealing with foreign policy.   I would add that Obama's policies have also not been kind to the environment and instead of reflecting the will of the people, he has chosen to base his decisions on the will of corporations.

For example, it appears to many in the "know" that Obama is going to approve the Keystone Pipeline.   His public stance on the matter is sketchy.   For instance, in an article in the New York Times Raul M. Grijalva writes:

Depending on the outcome, I worry that the American public won't just lose faith in Keystone. It will lose faith in the government's ability to fund, carry out, understand and implement scientifically based environmental policy. President Obama doesn't want that to be his legacy. Neither do I. And I am hardly alone .

So we wait and we guess.   Yet, Republican governor Rick Perry of Texas states:

"You just write it down: He is going to approve the XL pipeline. He is. I mean there is no defending not opening the XL pipeline," he said. "I don't know why he's going to wait for two or three months to do it, but at the end of the day, it is too important to America, it's too important to the security of this country, it's too important to job creation."

So, is Obama just a "yes" man for corporations while lying through his teeth at the general population?   It sounds to me like he's saying,   "I'll hold off announcing my approval until the last minute!   Just tell me when to announce!"   Wait till the last second"Is that the mode of operation Obama is using?

Of course, returning to Mike Whitney's article at the beginning of this article, Obama appears to be playing a waiting game to saying "no" to the conservationists.   Obama is a sociopath, Whitney states.   Yep, just like the corporations he serves. Mm, the Earth and all Her peoples shall be damned alongside the rest of the planet.   Having worked as a mental health counselor, this definitely fits the bill for the diagnosis of sociopath.
