One of the downsides of electing a president with no leadership experience is that you likely end up with someone like President Obama who knows everything and therefore doesn't need to listen to anyone else.
If Obama had been a governor or a private-sector executive he would have found himself in numerous situations where he was wrong.
There's a lot to be said in favor of failure. Sadly, the occupant in the White House got there with a set of pre-conceived leftist notions that aren't compatible with the real world.
While on Fox News Sunday this morning, Bob Woodward said of Obama, "He needs to learn to listen" and that he's "not engaged."
But will Obama and his big ears even try listening to other people besides fellow radicals such as Valerie Jarrett?
