Obama on Regrets He Has Over the Destruction of the Democratic Party: It's Too Bad I'm Only One Man, and Couldn't Simultaneously Organize the DNC While Also Doing Such a Terrific Job as Commander in Chief

Dunning-Kruger called, they want their syndrome back.

The funniest part of this answer is how it develops, of course, into him extolling his own abilities. "Partly because my docket was really full here, I couldn't be both chief organizer of the Democratic Party and function as commander in chief and president of the United States," he told Stephanopoulos. "We did not begin what I think needs to happen over the long haul, and that is rebuild the Democratic Party at the ground level."

If only he'd been able to juggle both roles, president and "chief organizer" (whatever that means), the Democratic Party wouldn’t have lost a thousand farking seats at the federal and state level since 2009? I don’t know how to read that answer except as him saying (a) the current "chief organizers" of the party are utter incompetents and (b) there’s no problem with the Democratic Party that a little more Barack Obama couldn’t have cured.

The man does not want for self-regard, though he desperately wants for a reason for that self-regard.
