As Michael Bloomberg put it: "The most arrogant man I've ever met".
In a softball interview with Matt Lauer, Obama complained that the checks and balances of separation of powers made his job "more difficult", and sometimes "messy. He went on to say that "One of the things about being president is you get better as time goes on", and defended his abysmal record with "we've got a lot of things done" and that he "deserves a second term". I guess that just getting thing done equals success, even if those "things" are taking a wrecking ball to the U.S. economy. He also said he was worried about Super PAC's and the influence of big money in politics. This from the man who spent nearly three-quarters of a billion dollars in his 2008 presidential campaign! What grapes!

"What's frustrated people is that I've not been able to implement every aspect of what I said in 2008. Well, it turns out our Founders designed a system that makes it more difficult to bring about change than I would like sometimes. But what we have been able to do is move in the right direction," Obama said.
