1. He thinks he’s playing with Monopoly money - he underestimated the consequences of the perception that he is a reckless spender. He also misjudged the anger in middle America about bailouts.

Too much Leonard Nimoy - this story is that his intellect contributed to critique that decisions are separated from main beliefs. 3.

He’s a pushover - the perception is that he lays out the lines, then lets people cross them without any responsibility. 5.

President Pelosi - nobody has had more success in advancing his will than Pelosi, he has hamstrung Biden and Hillary. 7. He’s in love with the man in the mirror - Obama is over-exposed and thinks he can satisfy American with his looks and glib tongue.
