Obama: I Give Myself a Solid A+ for 2014

The prince doth prance.

That headline is deceptive, but I'm using the deceptive headline from MarketWatch. I don't see anywhere that Obama is quoted as giving himself an A+.

But it does seem implied.

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)To hear the White House tell it, the November elections never happened and 2014 was a super-duper year for President Obama.

In a "Year in Review" slideshow, the White House suggests 2014 represented a "breakthrough" for America. The Obama administration takes credit for:

An economy growing at a record pace;

The longest streak of private-sector job growth on record;

The number of Americans without health insurance falling to a near record low...

Near a record low? Oh, it was lower before Obamacare. Perfect, just what you were aiming for, Captain Asshole.

I'm omitting the rest of his fantasias, which include checking Putin's overrunning of Ukraine (!!!!).

Obama does chide himself for some failures, of course. Primarily, his failure to adequately explain how awesome he's doing to the public.

"I'm obviously frustrated with the results of the midterm election," Obama told NPR in a radio interview released Monday. "I think we had a great record for members of Congress to run on. And I don't think we -- myself, and the Democratic Party -- made as good of a case as we should have."
