Charming, in that deeply stupid way that one finds in people who have never had to fully live up to the promise of their potential. From Barack Obama’s comments in Roanoke:

Via @JimPethokoukas. Somebody should really explain to the President that sounding like Elizabeth Warren is not a guarantor of success even in Massachusetts; in actual swing states it comes across as being, say, a clueless drone with no conception of what goes into making a business work and even less of a conception of what adversity looks like. To put it more simply: just because Barack Obama never accomplished anything on his own as an adult doesn’t that the rest of us can’t.
