Do you read this as a hilarious slam on Hillary Clinton by Obama while pointing out his own Greek godlike qualities?
Speaking at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser Thursday here in the lush backyard of two party megadonors, Obama warned of a country and world on the brink — “you are right to be concerned,” he told the crowd — but said they’d flub their chance to change that if they kept pining for a magical savior.
“Do not wait for the perfect message, don’t wait to feel a tingle in your spine because you’re expecting politicians to be so inspiring and poetic and moving that somehow, ‘OK, I’ll get off my couch after all and go spend the 15-20 minutes it takes for me to vote,’” Obama said in his first public comments in months, which only a few reporters and no cameras were allowed in for. “Because that’s part of what happened in the last election. I heard that too much.”
But wait, it gets better. Obama said that because people were focused on his awesomeness, Democrats forgot to focus on the down ballot races, and that led to Democrats losing seats in historic numbers:
“I’ll be honest with you, if I have a regret during my presidency, it is that people were so focused on me and the battles we were having, particularly after we lost the House, that folks stopped paying attention up and down the ballot,” Obama said.
Confirmed: He’s still as humble as ever! Not to mention as delusional:

According to Obama, all that happened because America was too captivated by its president at the time. And in a way, he’s correct — we were captivated by the awful policies of Obama and the Dems.
