A new Washington Post / ABC poll was released yesterday, revealing nothing new. It's shaping up to be a close election (if you believe these polls). Though I have a difficult time comprehending how anyone could be in favor of subjecting the country to four more years of this administration, what perplexes me even more is the "likability" gap.
Q: Regardless of who you may support, who do you think Seems like the more friendly and likable person - (Obama) or (Romney)?
Registered voters: 61% Obama 27% Romney
. . . Likable? . . . Likable? Really? . . . Friendly? Seriously? He seems a little angry to me, and before anyone accuses me of being racist for using the word angry in a sentence referring to a black man please know that as a misanthrope I am an equal opportunity critic. I don't like anybody very much... and I mean ANYBODY! Anyhow, maybe it's all the free stuff he promises, or perhaps it's his determination to stick it to the rich man that people find endearing. I just don't see it. Class warfare and victimization aren't the acts of a friendly man. It's also possible that voters are hesitant to express dislike for America's first black president. Doing so would make you . . . well just ask Chris Matthews what that would make you! Fortunately there are a few willing to chance it!
John Sununu is right, Barack Obama is not a nice guy, not really much to *like*!
