10. People supported Obama because he was Obama.

I am still very enamored of Obama - I think he's a good man, a smart man, and he has a wonderful uplifting family.
He and his family impress me more than the Kennedy's.

To be sure, the day started with a dash of cold water.
He didn't have the support of his own party!!
He had majorities that allowed themselves to be filibustered to death.
So nothing, not a damn thing, went through.

That is not on Obama. That's on the Democratic party. He had to deal with it.

His one and only mistake was to take Hillary Clinton on board as SOS.
Her fucking private email server hid her work from HIM.
She put him out of the loop.
Grok that, why don't you?

She's a wonder worker, that one.
