Why does the President seem so Angry?

I thought this was interesting

Usually, a president has gone through a number of political battles before assuming the highest office in the nation. Most hold executive office at another level before running for the office, and have to deal with policy battles and at least occasional defeats before entering the Oval Office. They build a thicker skin, get a better sense of their strengths and limitations, and these experiences make for better presidents in the long haul.

Obama, on the other hand, has never held executive office in politics. He has spent his short political life as a legislator, and not even a particularly bold legislator. Obama was much more of a bandwagon man as a legislator, offering rhetorical instead of political leadership, and for the most part receiving nothing but warm praise bordering on tongue-baths from the media.


Obama couldn't sell ObamaCare, and now he wants to scold America for not agreeing with him. [Tucker] Carlson is right to call this bitterness, but it's the bitterness of a man who may have been told no for the first time in his political life, and clearly doesn't know how to react to it.
