George Bush wasn't all that popular in 2004, but the
economy was doing OK. And if people are feeling
good about that, they'll keep the incumbant. Remember
the Dem's slogan to defeat Bush Sr in '92? "Its the
economy, stupid." James Carville came up with that
one. Too bad for him it works both ways..

With all the WH insider info coming out that Obama
is the most detached out of touch president we've
probably ever had, why would anybody want 4 more
years?

He can't manage anything, so he delegates all his
responsibility to underlings, while he plays hoops
on the WH court, bowls on the WH lanes, and plays
golf whenever he can. When he has WH briefings,
he always appears 'distant and distracted' from
whats being said. He just doing what he does best,
voting or being 'present'.



Bob Woodward, the king of investigative reporters,
who's usually pretty nice to Democrats, has whats
described as a 'devastating' book on Obama coming
out next week.

He's described as arrogant, aloof, full of himself,
unprepared. Woodward says Obama is ham-handed
in forming alliances, something Clinton was a master
of. Obama is lacking in people-skills, and doesn't seem
to even like people very much. Yet he views himself
as very effective at swaying people to his side. He
seems to like all the trappings of being president, but
doesn't enjoy at all the actual work of being president.
Apparently Obama's arrogance is described many times
in the book as having a negative effect on those visiting
the White House, from both sides of Congress.

Gosh, the more I hear, the more I'm thinking, how is
this guy not getting my vote. Good grief.

Maybe Woodward wrote two different books.

Quote:

The book goes on sale next Tuesday, but The New York Times was able to buy a copy on Thursday from a retailer.

With the presidential election weeks away, the book will do little to reshape Mr. Obama’s image as a powerful man steering the government forward, but it is also unlikely to engender much support for Republican leaders in Congress who seem unable to control their members.

LOL, did you read the review? Its saying essentially the
same thing, only with a spin on it. I'm seeing nothing
positive about Obama at all, except he blames congress
whenever he can. The biggest criticism of Obama seems
to be nobody was in charge and there were no real plans.
Even the Dem's were thrown by the administrations lack
of planning.

Watched Obama's speech. What did he say that was different
from every other speech he's ever given. The crowd loved it,
but they had drank the KoolAid and Obama reading the phone
book would have been just as enjoyable to them. Did you their
glassy eyes and dilated pupils? Frightening.

Now I believe you are indeed EvenBob. Did not want anyone to think you actually watched it. That's all.
