with plenty of sycophants(and probably a couple of puppet-masters) telling him he is, so this isn't exactly a surprise.
This pervasive contempt for the views of others is one of the
President’s greatest weaknesses and least attractive traits. Inevitably,
it percolates throughout his Administration and prevails in particular
at the White House.
Tends to show through when he's unable to shove something through: "Don't you peasants understand my genius? You should be thanking me for lowering myself to tell you how to live!" Etc.
Not only are their efforts pointless—if Obama is his own strategist, why
should he listen to you, foolish or wicked veterans of the Bush
Administration?—they are misguided. One can only judge a policy on its
implementation, and although a no-fly zone conceived by a tough-minded
Commander in Chief and implemented by Bob Gates might be just the thing,
a no-fly zone put into place by the President who brought you vanishing
red lines, a botched withdrawal from Iraq, the reset with Russia that
wasn’t, repeated groveling apologies for the inevitable accidents of
war, and much else, could be a debacle.
After which he'll- again- tell us "It wasn't MY idea, so it's not MY fault this is falling apart!"
