The chairman of the Alabama Republican Party is asking whether President Barack Obama is a “sociopath.”

In his “chairman’s corner” column sent to supporters Monday, state GOP chairman Bill Armistead wrote about the president’s recent golfing and asked: “Is Obama A Sociopath?”

“President Obama returned to the White House last night after a two week vacation to Martha’s Vineyard,” Armistead wrote. “Amidst an international crisis in the Middle East, a national crisis in Missouri and the beheading of American journalist James Foley by ISIS, President Obama practiced his golf swing by day and his dance moves by night.”

Added Armistead: “While on vacation, President Obama seemed to shut himself off from the rest of the country. His apparent disregard for the state of our nation is appalling.”

Armistead cited an article from columnist Wayne Root who recently wrote an article titled: “Do We Have a Sociopath in the White House?”

“I believe we have a president who is an arrogant, egomaniacal sociopath,” Root said in that article.
