Barack Obama Says His Biggest Mistake was Putting Policy over Spinning a Story … I Thought Obama was the Great Orator
Barack Obama’s biggest problem was that he did not pander enough to the American people … What happened to the “Great Orator?”
President Barack Obama stated that the biggest mistake in his first term was putting policy over storytelling. HUH, story telling? This is Obama’s take from his “epic failure” of a first term in office? Of course story telling is code for he could not BS Americans enough to make them like his unpopular policies that went against the will of the American people. First of all, Obama did not get the policy correct. Second, I thought we have been told that Obama was a great orator as his minions and lapdog media complex have told us that Obama was a great orator and communicator. Obama was been called Lincolnesque and Reaganesque?
America’s biggest mistake was electing Barack Obama. That can all be fixed in 2012 … Remember in November!

“The mistake of my first term, couple of years, was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right. And, that’s important.

President Obama’s biggest mistake during his first term, he told CBS News in an exclusive interview, has been putting policy over storytelling.
When I think about what we’ve done well and what we haven’t done well,” the president said, “the mistake of my first term – couple of years – was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right. And that’s important. But the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times.”
Mr. Obama acknowledged the dissonance between others’ perception of his strength as an expert orator, and his own.
UNREAL. Barack Obama is a delusional, narcissist who has no concept what it means to be President and his mere words say more than enough to not reelect him to office. This is exactly why so many said that he was no qualified to be President. He hasn’t a clue what it takes. The rant at Jammie Wearing Fool, is a classic and I do not think I could have stated it any better. As a matter of fact, I believe I have actually used, if not thought the same, over the past 3+ years.
Tell a story? Tell a story? Holy geez, this guy’s entire goddamn existence is one big story (composite, of course), and he wants to lament that his biggest failure is not making up some grandiose vision of what’s really going on? Hey, while you were fuck*ng golfing and making basketball picks the last four years our economy has been in the crapper. Your entire presidency is one huge, tragic joke. And America is suffering because of it.

Amen brother & ssister!
From the Weekly Standard comes Mitt Romney’s response to Obama’s ridiculous comments:
President Obama believes that millions of Americans have lost their homes, their jobs and their livelihood because he failed to tell a good story. Being president is not about telling stories. Being president is about leading, and President Obama has failed to lead. No wonder Americans are losing faith in his presidency
