Liberals are completely and utterly delusional:
One of the most annoying male Twitter behaviors is truly believing you are a political tactical genius would have catapulted over all the obstacles faced by Obama, the first nonwhite male ever elected to president who absent term limits would have sailed to a third term.

Contrast that with this:
As someone who worked at a bailed out bank I can tell you, the Obama team sided with us bankers on almost every decision (small & big). So much so that we were confused

Schmitt is someone whose writing I generally like, but she’s a standard-issue liberal, which means her ideas are laughable outside her realm of knowledge.
Obama had many choices, and a great deal of power. He chose to help bankers over homeowners, crooks over the middle class. And this was a choice — even where he had complete discretion and absolute power, he still did not do the right thing. It does’t take a goddamn political genius to do the right thing when you have the power to do it. All it takes is wanting to do it.
