Winning such things requires experience, the kind gained from performing difficult, and ofter dangerous tasks, and from working with people in difficult, trying situations.

The result is now he has no idea how to function at the level the Presidency requires. And while he should rely on high quality advisors to take up this slack, he is simply too egotistical to believe he needs advisors. Instead he surrounds himself with sycophants, and worm-tongues like Jarrett. The result is a Presidency of unparalleled incompetence, which commonly makes the same or similar mistakes again, and again.
Unbelievably we appear to be making the same mistake with Hillary. The real difference between Obama, and Hillary is Obama seems not to understand that his policies are foolish, and damaging. Hillary appears to realize this about hers, but baldly lies to cover up the problems. Lying is a clear sign that she understands the problem and is playing hide the ball.
Obama is a naive man, in over his head, surrounded by sycophants, and manipulative worm-tongues. I am not sure how much more of this mis-governance America can take.
