Skip to comments.Am I the last person in America who still adores President Obama
Posted on 11/02/2010 11:01:55 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd
Honestly, though, I'm surprised that so many people have turned against the president. Obviously, if you've lost your job, life is tough, but did voters really believe the country was going to quickly and dramatically reverse course once he was elected? So he hasn't yet made good on every campaign promiseisn't this like being shocked that you didn't lose as much weight doing Jenny Craig as Valerie Bertinelli did, or that your new memory-foam mattress didn't magically cure your insomnia?
But when I see Obama on television, I'm unfailingly struck by his intelligence and charisma, by his easygoing humor, by the magnificence of his megawatt smile. He just makes me proud, and perhaps this is where I should admit that if there are two categories of Obama criticsconservatives who never liked the guy and have in some cases become unhinged since he was elected, and centrists or Democrats who voted for him but now feel let downI suspect that, in the visceral nature of my response to our president, I have more in common with the unhinged nut jobs. By this I mean that my Obama admiration is a kind of emotional inverse of the right-wing Obama antipathy: I can pretend it's all about policy, but in truth, it's much more personal. Where his detractors dislike him because of, say, that Muslim vibe he gives off, I like him for similarly nebulous, albeit slightly more factual reasons.
I like that he's married toand seemingly still quite taken witha strong, opinionated, gorgeous woman, and that he has two ridiculously cute daughters. I like his mind-bendingly multicultural extended family. I like that in a campaign interview in Glamour magazine, he could fluently and unabashedly talk about Pap smears.

Yes....Next question please...
He would be the only guy I would know.
This putz must live in another country or another planet. NO ONE can be this isolated after nearly two years.
Wow, Curtis — you need some kneepads to go with that?
I think that he needs a good dictionary. He obviously meant “abhor” and misspelled it “adore.”
Curtis Sittenfeld is hoping to earn his Oval Office knee pads.
IIRC Curtis is the nom-de-plume of a female author.
Absolutely the last....why?
This is an obvious cry for help. He needs to be put on suicide watch.
a) The author is insane
b) The author is homosexual
c) The author masturbates over pictures of Barry Hussein ...
Today I am very happy with Urkel. Very proud of the job he has done.
“..But when I see Obama on television, I’m unfailingly struck by his intelligence and charisma, by his easygoing humor, by the magnificence of his megawatt smile..”
MAJOR PROJECTILE VOMITING RIGHT NOW!
intelligence and charisma don’t mean “SHEYAT” if you are a flaming Marxist who seeks to destroy this country!
Obamanation be GONE in 2012 (or else the Mayan calendar will be CORRECT!)
Yes, Elizabeth Curtis Sittenfeld.
Don’t bother googling her guys, she’s not worth it. On any level.
But now you know why this person gushes in such an unmanly, oestrogenic way.
I think Curtis is a woman
It’s no wonder V.I. Lenin called folks like this “Usefull idiots”...
This person should not be allowed to vote.
People thought that the sea levels would fall and that the planet would begin to heal, and that they would not have to worry about their gas costs or mortgage payments, so yes.
I'm unfailingly struck by his intelligence and charisma
Anyone can read from a teleprompter. Perhaps the author of this piece should watch the clips of 0bama "unplugged," where he says there are 57 states, that Canada has a president, among other things.
... by his easygoing humor, by the magnificence of his megawatt smile.
Clearly this guy missed 0bama's appearance on The Daily Show.
