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.

Perception is reality: Does Obama look like a President?
No

He doesn’t act like one either.

I understand your point, but that seems so petty, compared to the hatred he has for our country, our lifestyle, our faith, our values, our accomplishments…
When you look at him he’s raped:
The Economy
The Military
Everyday people, who make this country EXCELLENT.

I know we’re very disappointed with the RINOs, and their lack of paying attention to what we told them last November, but we must stay the course, and get RID of obomie.

I completely agree Vic.
There are so many stories I wish were covered by this website that aren’t.
How about the independent audit that has found that the Fed has granted 16 trillion in foreign and corporate bailouts?
Or Obama’s continuing relations with acorn representatives and their desire to restart the company through HAMP additions?

There are so many crooked unconstitutional aspects in which to view Obama, why are his clothes an issue?

On the flipside, I wear an army brown t-shirt and pajamas half the time and still look better. :)

Thank you Mr. Bishop. Over at TheBlaze.com today, they have a story about Muslim influence INSIDE the White House. To obobomie “The Muslim call to prayer is such a beautiful sound.” But he forgot our own Easter. And, as they say in Radio, “The hits just keep on commin'”
The point I keep harping on, is no matter how bad the Repub candidate is, we must stick together and oust obomie. I don’t think our country can survive another four years of these clowns.

I honestly disagree with you. I for one am not a dedicated Republican, as there are a lot of Republican “sticky points” with which I do not agree, nor do there actions always serve their tenets.

I firmly believe we will be much better off as a country (long term) with Obama for another 4 years unless we can actually promote a STRONG libertarian/fiscal conservative candidate for office. I, for example, would rather have Obama serve for the next 4 years then Mitt Romney. I will digress from such strong statements with my reasoning.

Mitt Romney is unfortunately the same as Bush. Their ideological backgrounds may appear different, but their records prove the same. Both achieved wide success by appealing to a wide base of religious majorities and high-profiled donors, while achieving marginal successes in his home state(Most of Romney’s individual successes include some that would make Democratic candidates proud to claim). Second of all, Romney has established himself as a flip-flopper on so many issues it isn’t worth stating, so we can’t know for sure what he will actually achieve in office. My bet in dollars to doughnuts is he continues on the same path that Bushbama has laid out, as it is an easy course to proceed in, since most Americans are unfortunately inadequately educated in either reasonable fiscal behavior or applied economics.

Continuing on, if this path continues, four years of Romney will create the same Republican backlash that Bush encountered, where every single level-headed GOP member knew a Republican was not going to win in 2008. At this point we leave ourselves open, as an entire country, to an even possibly worse contender then Obama. We cannot let this happen. We need the most radical change in fiscal and domestic policy as soon as possible.

Now, there are a lot of disagreements I have with the entire GOP lineup. My number one is that Bolton bailed, and then Herman Cain fizzled out. Thankfully Romney is dropping in the polls, but to be ascended by Bachmann is not a specific victory for the party. I mean… John Wayne and John Wayne Gacy. Really?

There has hardly been a political frontrunner on the GOP side who has the record, tenacity, and hardcore audacity to achieve desired results, atleast for me. At the risk of sounding a nut, I openly prefer Ron Paul to Rick Perry, as his hardcore stance on gay marriage is something I cannot get behind. Ron Paul on the other hand is someone who’s ideals I am lining up with more and more on a daily basis. But his base is hit or miss.

I must confess; I hardly believe there is even a hope for America these days. So many people, even GOP members are truly members of the cause these days. They are so busy lining their pockets from lobbyists and special interest groups, they cannot see the damage they are openly inflicting on America. We need a wake up call. I just hope we’re able to elect a President who is able and willing to give one, no matter how much “it hurts his reelection chances.”

DB: “I firmly believe we will be much better off as a country (long term) with Obama for another 4 years….”

You forget that as a lame duck w/nothing to lose, he has recess appointments, Supreme Court nominations and Executive Orders he can throw around at will. Be careful what you wish for…

If he wouldn’t be guaranteed to work to have U.N. gun regulations (read; Total Civilian Ban) put in place to override the 2nd Amendment, I still think we’ll be better off with any of the current dipsnits on the GOP side. That’s just me, though, and several million other voters.

And just who in the hell came up with the silly notion that U.N. treaties take precedence over our own Constitution? I thought that ANY law or treaty that violated the Constitution was supposed to be null and void.

NO ONE with 3 synapsing brain cells should even CONSIDER voting for Pretty Ricky. He is a moron, and the job growth he brags about are mostly low paying service jobs, telemarketing, etc. He backed building a toll road thought the middle of nowhere. He attempted to use state funds 1) to use imminent domain to absolutely STEAL property along the planned route, and 2) use taxpayer money to build the road, after which one of his cronies would manage the toll road and get ALL the toll revenues. DO NOT BE FOOLED; Rick Perry is NOT what you want in a President.

And hence why I spewed my horribly down-thumbed opinion that perhaps we can take another 4 years of Obama while we wait for someone like Paul Ryan to become of age.

I feel dirty when I say this, but…
RON PAUL 2012!

Paul Ryan is kinda baby-faced but believe it or not he’s 41. He could actually run for President. He would be an attractive candidate but I think the press would just crucify him. The young man throwing Granny out of her wheelchair in the Democratic commercial was supposed to be Paul Ryan. I think his plan called for block granting Medicare funds to the states. The Democrats say this would result in deep cuts but Obama’s plan calls for deep cuts. This isn’t fair but the liberals are very effective at playing the Republicans are mean to older people card. Ryan is said to be mulling over a presidential bid but I doubt he runs. He may not have a lot of time. His great-grandfather died of a heart attack at 59. His grandfather died of a heart attack at 57. Paul Ryan found his Dad dead in bed of a heart attack at 55. Sometimes people have bad genes. But maybe they didn’t pay as much attention to dietary habits and medical histories in previous generations.

I apologize for my misquotes then. I remember reading in a national review article that he was illegible to run because of his age. I retract my statements… Draft Paul Ryan?

Paul Ryan is a young looking guy. I guessed last year he was about 35 or 37 and then was surprised to see that he was already 40. Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, and others are said to be trying to get Ryan to run. In private he keeps saying he has young children and doesn’t want to run. But now he is said to be rethinking things. I don’t think he’ll run but if he throws his hat in the ring in the next week or two I won’t be shocked. I kinda think Rick Perry might get the nomination now. The guy is kind of a force of personality. Social conservatives and Tea Party people like him. Economic conservatives like him because of the Texas boom. But I don’t think the Republican establishment likes him. A Rasmussen poll from yesterday of Republicans has it like this.

Perry – 29%
Romney -18%
Unsure – 16%
Bachmann -13%

I think Ron Paul comes in next around 9%.

That’s exactly the problem, Rose. We DON’T want him. The MSM wants him. So the lies will go out in every direction, trying to make him look good, and everyone else look like a lunatic. Once they get him nominated, then they go after him, trying to make him look bad, which won’t be hard to do, and VIOLA! Obama is re-elected.

No Rick Perry, No Rick Perry. Believe me, Texas has suffered under this doofus for years. THey only good thing about him being President would be to get him out of office as Govenor. And that is sort of out of the frying pan and into the fire. Perry is lying through his teeth ( a common habit) while trying to woo support for his candidacy. You REALLLLLY dopn’t want him as President.

The Republicans need to quit pussy-footing around with the Dems and start calling them out on their lies. That’s right, call a liar a liar. Right to his or her face, in public. Show proof, let them try to refute it. No apologies, no backpedaling. It’s never been done before, they won’t know how to handle it. Look at Dear Sweet Olivia.

I understand, but I still must disagree. Evenn with a flip-floppin’ Romney, at least we stay the course of Bush. And I think that is a lot better than obmoie. This would buy the Tea Partiers four years to get their act together. I do like Ron Paul, but I do not think he is electable. If you look at every elected president, since LBJ, they’ve all been “pretty”. (to a lesser extent the Bushes, and I felt the Bushes, while not the greatest,were better than the Clintons.) We need to buy ourselves a little space, and bring the Teasters on board.

You see, I don’t see the same electability of a Tea Party candidate, as they have all proven themselves so far extremely unstable. With the exception of Paul Ryan (who isn’t 35), I don’t see a single person on the stage with the gall and the ability to be able to combat an incumbent and succeed with true adherence to the constitution, or fight for the positive welfare of the nation. I am not at all saying Obama accomplishes these items, but I am saying that four more years of Obama would definitely lay the groundwork to make most sound-minded democrats and most reputable independents vote for whatever candidate the GOP laid up. As opposed to electing a GOP’er who follows down Obama’s path, I see this as an upside.

You speak of Bush’s path. No offense, but as a Libertarian, Bush is one of the worst offenders of the GOP party in conditions a la bre Libertarian. Expansions of Guantanamo, the war on drugs, the Patriot act, the expansion of the Echelon system, oil and ethanol subsidies, the continued exploitation of the tax code for allies; I can go on. The Bush was no Gipper, and we must all realize this before we idolize every GOP president before us. The most reasonable democrats realize Carter was an abomination, and are even willing to primary Obama today. Our party must wake up too.

I applaud your efforts of atleast being 50% right by being on the more logical side, but you must realize the errors of the past to succeed in the future, and I don’t believe you have yet.

Paul Ryan is over 40 by now. Marco Rubio turned 40 the past May. Rubio has TEA affiliation. Ryan might but I remain leary of his sellout-abililty.

The prison industrial complex is so lucrative and in position to remain so as long as we maintain the war on drugs that I can’t imagine it’ll go away, at least not before public labor unions are outlawed. Imagine your cash cow has a million beds and the closer to no vacancies you maintain the more money rolls in. Why would you want to fill it with hardened violent people when you could arrest people for having a bag of marijuana and put them in for at least 10 years if it can be deemed felonious?

I’ll look it up id I have to but a story from the courts in Ohio as I recall in the early 90s, shortly after adopting the ‘truth in sentencing’ debacle. Most judges’ courts do a sentencing day for many previous recent convictions. This particular day the judge had a felon that had sold marijuana to undercover police three times. Quantities totaled something like 3 ounces divided into smaller bags and he had a few ounces at his house when the tossed it. Judge nailed guy in his 20s to 57 years with no chance for parole, due to truth in sentencing. Next case up, some fellow that had beaten an elderly lady, top of her 70s as recall, with a large broken tree branch. She died. He was sentenced to 11 years. The defense successfully argued her quality of life had not been significantly deprived by her killer because of her age.

We have a real problem when our prisons are half full of non-violent people whose only illegal activity was getting caught with a bag of weed. Gang bangers that deal huge amounts of very harmful material as well as prostitution, rape and vicious attacks on people get walks very often since they have been oppressed by the man for 300 years. All the coke and crack dealers, all the meth dealers and heroin dealers – all of those dogs should be put down. The pill mills and all the people that run the pharmaceuticals illegally should be stubbed severely, too.

I have known many people that turn into raging violent idiots after a couple drinks. I have know many people that do nothing of the sort smoking a joint. If they smoke too much, they fall asleep or eat all the Doritos. Some things seem really lop sided and unfair, don’t they?
