The endless psychologizing of Barack Obama is endlessly entertaining, and I enjoy it as much as any other rabid Rightie -- but, in the end, it doesn't explain what makes the man so dangerous. After all, there are plenty of conservative politicos with outsized egos, damaged psyches, and, no doubt, unhappy childhoods, whom we don't consider dangerous. So what's our real problem with Obama? It's his ideology -- not his personality. He's our first anti-American president -- the first who overtly and explicitly disdains the American idea, the first who has felt compelled to apologize, repeatedly, for America's past. He is a hard-Leftist, and he believes, as all hard-Leftists do, that the United States is guilty of two high crimes: capitalism and imperialism, that the United States has become rich and powerful through exploitation and plunder both at home and abroad, and that the United States deserves to be brought down to size. His three-and-a-half year assault on our economy and, equally important, on our military, has been nothing more than his attempt to convert America into just another country -- a country incapable of ever again "hurting" anyone. What makes him dangerous is neither his upbringing nor his neuroses but his beliefs -- and the fact that he shares those beliefs with millions of other Americans. If Obama had had a normal childhood and were a paragon of psychological health but nevertheless believed as fervently as he does in the hard-Left critique of America, he'd still be a very dangerous man.
cf. the article at the end of the above hyperlink: "a number of Messiahs arose promising relief" ACTS 6:36 [Here, a Jew speaks:] For before these days rose up Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody; to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to nought. ACTS 6:37 [Here, a Jew speaks:] After this man rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of the taxing, and drew away much people after him: he also perished; and all, /even/ as many as obeyed him, were dispersed. ACTS 21:38 [Here, a Roman Centurian speaks:] Art not thou that Egyptain, which before these days madest an uproar, and leddest out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers?

Fear and pride, not a good combo in anyone but very common in the "bad king" problem, like Saul, and not the one in Acts.

Experts predict that the coastline of Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii will see some pretty nasty debris wash ashore; California will have some, but less, as most of it will be caught in a current that will carry it to the pacific islands.
