I guess he doesn’t really get the fact that he came from behind because nothing negative was written about him. As an empty suit who never took a stand for anything, no one knew what he stood for (because he stood for nothing.) Thus, he became what anyone wanted him to be. He was a great orator, although no one could really say what he had said. He was a great… whatever, people wanted him to be they could say he was. Now, that he actually has to take a stand on an issue. People are seeing him for what he is. He is no longer an empty suit, he is a man who hasn’t got a clue.
