I don't think there's any evidence of that.
He was pretty normal till Rick came back. He was even heroic.
I think that he liked being in power, didn't really deal well with the whole end of the world thing, and was going to be jealous of whomever stepped up to be in charge and go nuts on them.
And I don't think he would have made a good long term leader, as he was already making certain mistakes, not thinking about certain things, and the fact they were safe had more to do with luck and less to do with him being a great leader.
So while his personality pre-Rick was good, I think sooner or later someone would have stepped up and his crazy would have seeped out.
But again, that has nothing to do with whether or not Lori is awful.
