That's the way to show us you're paying attention after Massachusetts:
President Obama's biggest mistake so far is being an overachiever?
"If there's one thing that I regret this year is that we were so busy just getting stuff done and dealing with the immediate crises that were in front of us that I think we lost some of that sense of speaking directly to the American people about what their core values are and why we have to make sure those institutions are matching up with those values,"
The president said he made a mistake in assuming that if he focused on policy decisions, the American people would understand the reasoning behind them.
"That I do think is a mistake of mine," Obama said. "I think the assumption was if I just focus on policy, if I just focus on this provision or that law or if we're making a good rational decision here, then people will get it."
We all joked that Obama was "Welcome Back, Carter" - but perhaps we were being prescient? Its hard to be as obtuse and self righteous as Jimmy Carter, but Obama is clearly shooting for it, so far.
Barry, time to get Carville on speed dial…you need someone out there who can give you some good advice and let you know what the real world is up to.
