    McGurn: The 'Likable' Barack Obama - WSJ.com


    Excellent article. Good points. We aren't going to make people who like Obama as a person stop liking him. We have to get beyond our sense of puzzlement that some enjoy his speeches. This will win a lot more votes than trying to make people who find Obama charming suddenly stop liking him: "My opponent is a good and decent man but ..."

    Given the stances taken by Romney in the GOP primary, the reply should be, "Which Romney are you voting for, the one prior to Etch-a-Sketch, or the one after Etch-a-Sketch".

    It goes beyond likeability. There is a general factor know as appearing "presidential" some can pull it off, others can't. Candidates like Dukakis, Mondale and Dole lacked that stage presence that said......I want this guy representing me.

    Romney has a hard time relating to average Americans. He has the persona of the last person in the room to get a joke. He has little knowledge of sports or popular culture. His public appearances appear stiff and scripted.

    Going to be hard for Romney to win over the American people. He can't even win over the republicans

    Obama was and still is the Socialist's "Wet Dream", a Communist in thought, heart, action and resolve, but a person of color that theoretically prevented you from objecting to any of his plans or programs because it painted you as a racist.
    What about common sense?
    Solyndra etc (Another taxpayer funded green program was pointed out as about to fail today)
    Fast and Furious, a blatant attempt to eliminate all or part of America's Second Amendment rights.
    Obamacare (Bahney Fwank recently pointed out that it was indeed a very dumb thing to do)
    The 787 billion dollar Stimulus, simply payback for supporting Obama by looting the Treasury
    Obama's rampaging lawlessness: His recess appointments when Congress was not in recess, his rape of the Chrysler bondholders, his illegal firing of Inspector General Gerald Walpin, his refusal to defend DOMA, his refusal to prosecute the Philadelphia NBPP for election law violations, his whole hearted open embrace of #OWS, his vigorous churning of the Martin/Zimmerman unrest by sending surrogates Sharpton, Jackson, and even DOJ personnel into the fray augmenting the Martin side..
