    Ritlin isn't really straight amphetamine, but it acts on the central nervous system in a similar fashion. Unless you take a crap-load of it, or actually need it, Ritalin's pretty low key.

    Now Adderall XR, that's your serious straight amphetamine, with a right and a left isomer (I think ...) for that long lasting buzz! I'll qualify that by saying that the buzz is most intense if you don't need the med or take too much.

    My .02, as far as a speculative diagnosis goes, I'd say he's got a whopping narcissistic or antisocial personality disorder. Perhaps a combo.

    PD's are highly resistant to treatment. People with personality disorders have an absolute lack of insight into the consequences of their behavior, cannot fathom how anything they have done might have been wrong. Narcissistic and antisocial PD behaviors include delusions of grandeur, torturing and killing animals, substance abuse, impulsivity, promiscuity, property destruction, lack of concern for others, etc., and range in extremes from petty criminal behavior to rape, torture, murder, etc.

    Sounds like a number of people in public life, I think.
