Remember when Biden and Hillary Clinton said variations on this phrase? '''I think he can be ready, but right now I don't believe he is. The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training.'" How about this one by then-candidate Obama, '“What you see in FDR that I hope my team can emulate is not always getting it right but projecting a sense of confidence and a willingness to try things and experiment in order to get people working again.”'? The president has now switched tactics to 'try out' populism, hoping that it will work better than the cool, above-it-all persona. The president seems to fail to understand that above all, the average voter wants a president who is sincere, even genuine.
