    People just like the guy.

    Doesn't matter how terrible a president he is.

    That's why he has a 75% chance of getting re-elected - unless there is a full-scale economic depression.

    Neither do I.

    But enough legal voters (and others) do.

    I don't get it. Seriously.

    When I see pictures of him doing stuff with his daughters, and not talking, I'm capable of a warm feeling or two toward him.

    But almost as soon as he opens his mouth .... warmth gone .....



    I just don't get it. How could he still be considered so likeable?




    Actually. First thing I'd like to see is the poll which says he is. I've heard a lot of allusions to how likeable he is, but I want to see the numbers and who asked and how they phrased it.

    What is likable about him? Regardless of politics? Bush is likable. Clinton is likable. Don't see how Obama is likable.

    Maybe people say tell pollsters that Obama is likable because they hear that everyone else thinks he is and so they either sort of convince themselves he is, or maybe they don't want to be honest about how they really feel about him.

    Someone might call them racist for acknowledging that he's a weasel.

    It's "safe" to say, "I like him personally but don't entirely approve of the job he is doing."

    That shelters people from being judged harshly.

    I just don't get the need of his for
    adoration.He is constantly in front of the camera
    in front of his "fans"...the constant need for attention.
    The appearances on talk shows and interviews on 60 mins.
    The constant demand of the lefties on the site that want the
    right leaning folks to heap praise on him.Then call us racists
    when we don't lavish praise on this President.
