"And what did Obama learn from all of this? Nothing, nothing at all. " Not true, he learned that he can lie repeatedly and half of the population - and 95% of the media - will still believe him, no matter what the actual evidence shows.

Also, that he can RULE by executive order and the inept congress will complain and do nothing.
The Oval Office isn't the place to learn on the job. That was the line from both Hillary Clinton and John McCain in 2008. In fairness, that's always the argument the more experienced candidate uses against the less experienced candidate (just ask Mitt Romney).

But Barack Obama seemed a special case, easily among the least experienced major-party nominees in U.S. history. A Pew poll in August 2008 found that the biggest concern voters had with Obama fell under the category of "personal abilities and experience." In a "change" year, Americans swallowed those concerns and voted for the change candidate.
