Later in the day, he met with House Democrats at a retreat and reiterated the theme:
I’m deeply grateful to have been reelected, and I’m humbled by the support that I received from all across the country. (Applause.) And I said at the National Prayer Breakfast this morning — and I was telling the truth — I genuinely am humbled.
The fascinating thing about this job is the longer you’re in it, the more humble you get, and the more you recognize your own imperfections. And you try to make up with effort and hard work those gaps in your personality or your intelligence that become so apparent to everybody on the daily news every day. (Laughter.)In my experience, people that have to make grand speeches about how humble they are don't know the meaning of the word.
It is a shame that those 'gaps in personality and intelligence' are apparent to everyone except Obama voters.
