    Likability is overrated.

    Nobody in their right minds would call LBJ or Nixon "likable."

    Yet both won landslide wins for re-election.

    Competence is more important than likabilty in most cases - except when it comes to Obama.

    So WTF cares is Obama is more "likable" than Romney. (who btw I think Romney is sort of a genial person anyway)

    The left-wing media totally blew Romneys Olympic comments out-of-porportioin.

    I didnt know the Limeys were so thin-skinned.....

    Reagan was competent AND likable. Helps to have both.

    I can't even begin to fully describe the irony of an Obama supporter complaining about someone else's incompetence.

    When he was VP.

    Didn't buy his wife a $6800 designer jacket.

    Nixon was a man-of-the people - self made.

    LBJ was very likable.

    He would have won had he ran again.

    Nixon? Not so much. But he did a great job of destroying his opponents.

    Yeah no kidding, Obama's plan is working, we just need more money and time, like every liberal program, still waiting for that victory on the War on Poverty.
