"In 2012, after scoring an impressive re-election win,"...more like Romney and the Republicans incompetently blowing the election. obama got 50.5% of the vote. Only 57% of eligible voters voted. obama was re-elected with 29% of eligible voters' votes. Not impressive or any kind of mandate.

Did you change the question because you have a good answer to the point?

No, that is what people do when they have *no* answer.

"You know, I actually believe my own bull----."

That's what President Obama once told a reporter. If the man ever uttered a statement that spoke more to his approach to politics, I haven't heard it.

Whether it stems from a grandiose overconfidence in his own powers of persuasion, or the lessons he took from his years as a community organizer, or his own messianic conviction that he is on the right side of everything, including history itself, the president has operated under the theory that he can move the American people to his causes. And he can't. He just can't.
