Obama: "I'm Enourmously Proud of" Myself... "All the Choices [I've] Made Have Been Right"

Would you like to see a delusional man?  Look no further than President Barack Obama in a recent interview with ABC.  Republicans have been slamming the President for being out-of-touch.  Considering that unemployment is above 9%, the economy is, at best, extremely rocky and volatile, and yet Mr. and Mrs. Obama spend millions pushing their own agenda, Mr. Obama should probably tone down his rhetoric.

However, in this new interview, the President dials up his ego to extreme heights. Here are just a few excerpts:
Reporter: And the other question I have is it seems as though sometimes your pitch, or the White House pitch, is you're almost a victim in this. You're not responsible when you have gotten so much past. I just wonder if you think that's effective to say, "it's those mean Republicans who are blocking me," when you've really gotten a lot done?

Obama: Well what we've gotten done I'm enormously proud of and it's making a difference...
Obama on what he has done as President:
Obama: I believe all the choices we've made have been the right ones.
How did President Obama learn about "Fast and Furious," a gun-running boondoggle that he should have been aware of from its inception:
Obama: Well I heard about it from the news reports. This is not something we were aware of in the White House and the Attorney General it turns out wasn't aware of either.
Obligatory pandering to Occupy Wall Street:
Obama: One of the things I'm most surprised about is hearing both from Republican members of Congress and Republican candidates, the notion that we should return to the rules that existed on Wall Street before the financial crisis. They want to roll back all the Wall Street reforms we put into place as if they've got amnesia about how we got into this problem in the first place.
And of course, the obligatory "even if I make mistakes, you can't blame me because it's tough being President" answer:
Obama: Well none of these decisions are easy.
The buck stops here? For President Obama, there is no buck. And if you had a buck, he'd probably want to take it from you with taxes.
