Obama says he second-guesses himself, makes mistakes

January 27, 2012 02:25

WASHINGTON - Barack Obama said on Thursday he doubted his decisions "constantly" and made mistakes daily but thought he had become a better president with more on-the-job experience.

"I second-guess myself constantly ... I make a mistake, you know, every hour, every day," the Democrat seeking re-election in November said with a laugh in an ABC News interview.

"There are always things that you're learning in the job. And I have no doubt that I'm a better president now than the day I took office just because you get more experience," he said.

Republicans vying to win back the White House on November 6 have criticized Obama for having too little leadership experience - in either the private or public sector - to effectively run the country and steer the economy out of crisis.
