    lets try to have a rational discussion about it.



    he appears to be trying to project an image that he does not have. he seems to be projecting a calm leadership when i think he needs to be a charismatic leader just as he was when he was campaigning...he came off as rather aloof...

    i didnt care for his choice of suits nor the family photos behind him

    i put that down to an onus on subduing the mission accomplished vibe that the bush stumbled into.

    i would not have worn a blood red tie, personally.

    That's because he's not any kind of charismatic at all....Anyone who objectively looked at the video from the Saddleback forum, or any other occasion where he stepped in it in absence of the telecrutch, could see that.

    What he's projecting is not coolness or aloofness, but deep dissociation....He's in so far over his pointy little head that even he can't fathom it anymore. Add to that the fact that he's surrounded by ideologues culled form the faculty lounge and career brown nosers, and it's little wonder that he's so hopelessly detached.

    If he was 1/10th as smart as his rose petal bearers in the MSM have pimped him off to be, he'd fire his entire staff, get Bubba Clinton on the phone and beg him to come in as Chief of Staff, to save his ass.

    no need for a power tie though was there? didn't match the force of rhetoric like you mentioned. it was also particularly dark. what color was the suit? i dont remember.

    I didn't watch much of it, but to me, he looked like he was either medicated, or really dejected and feeling beat. It was quite strange imo.
