Perception is reality: Does Obama look like a President?

by editor on August 17, 2011

President Obama plumbed the depths of Jimmy Carter popularity Sunday when Gallup measured his approval rating at just 39%.

It occurs to us that more people might approve of Obama as president if he actually attempted to look presidential. Has any occupant of the Oval Office ever done more to look unpresidential?

The only time you saw Ronald Reagan out of a suit was when he was chopping wood or riding horses at the Western White House. He never took off his suit coat while in the Oval Office.

Barack Obama, on the other hand, often seems to be auditioning for the next Abercrombie & Fitch catalog.












Even when he’s in the Oval Office, Obama manages to look unpresidential, feet thrown up on priceless desk as if it’s a footstool in a cheap hotel.

Mr. Editor this is such an ancient thread that I can’t unsubscribe to it. Can you take care of that from your end? I would be most grateful.

And just in case, that was tongue-in-cheek. I will peruse your C&H books someday…and then take you to lunch as a thank you. Hope you have a taste for red-neck ribs…
