Obama's likability is keeping him afloat

09-24) 06:25 PDT DENVER (AP) --

People like Christine Alonzo are keeping President Barack Obama afloat and giving his political team hope that he can win re-election despite high unemployment and sour attitudes about his policies and the country's future.

Alonzo volunteered for Obama during the 2008 campaign. A few months after Obama's victory, she lost her job. She's still looking for work. Instead of blaming Obama for the economic crisis, she's volunteering full time to help him capture a second term.

Likeability??? I hate him - hate hearing him, hate seeing him, hate that he was elected. Can’t wait to get rid of him!

Love the way the Junk Media has suddenly discovered “likeability” Bush has similar high “likeability” ratings. That did not seem to “help” him in the Junk Media's eyes

This poor lady is not the sharpest knife in the drawer!!! She does not have a clue!!! There is really nothing to say here!!! I guess if Obama were leading her into a gas chamber to be gassed to death, she would exclaim, “What a wonderful man Mr. POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama is, in letting my take this refreshing upcoming shower!!!”” That says it all!!!

However they define “likability”, it is by no means the best way to measure success.

Christine, keep up the good work! The last thing we need is for President Piñata Obama to become discouraged enough to not run. Heaven knows that all the campaign $$$ that would head toward Dem Senate races would be better spent by Obama on Obama. His coattails are long enough to be a benefit down ballot. /sarc

Baloney.

The only thing keeping Obama afloat is that our so-called “media” is utterly boot-lickingly, propping him up, and have since day one.

Our so-called “media” is to blame for all of this.

The same thing was said about Carter. Today’s media types are too young and too partisan to see history repeating itself.

The comments are great.

The press lies like usual—in their little b. licking world—of course, those type of people swoon at the site of zero.

He is a limp-wristed person, so is devoid of character-—he has deep seated personality problems—fixated at such a young age, he will never be a “mature” decent man.

...because of desertion of father and abusive stepfather—no decent male role model—all of them were icky, slime balls. Poor Barry—never had a chance with a whoring mother, who had a belief in a sick ideology which treats people like dogs. No wonder Barry crawls around on all fours and exhibits such submission to everyone and acts like a two year old when reprimanded.

I would truly label him a psychopath (along with Rahm)——according to my observations after reading, Without Conscience

BTW, psychopaths are extremely dangerous.

Those who tell pollsters what they think they want to hear out of a fear of being perceived as racists are beyond pathetic. Cowards.

"There are a lot of people out there who like the president, who think he is a good, decent person who is trying hard.

Trying hard to do what? These mindless clueless zombies do not choose to think and are ruled by their emotions. They do not realize that he is trying hard to destroy America.

Obama seems passive/aggressive in that uniquely far-leftwing, gay sort of way.

The type of mean spirited person, who would want to “b*tch-slap” those who they oppose.

yes, sir!

the “bradley effect” came from the experience of tom bradley, the first black los angeles mayor.

he ran for governor and the polls favored him.

but he lost it is believed because the people polled did not want to appear to be racists.

hence, the term the “bradley effect”.

Hey Liberal Media! You do not want to go there. The day someone catches the big O losing his cool, then his “likeability” will go out the window. It is just a matter of time.

Charles Manson succeeded because of his likability too. While I don't find Manson likable, the same people who would have liked him are now Obama's fans. There is no evil so perverse that the extreme liberals will not be seduced into admiration of its "likability".

If the story has any accuracy I would attribute his likability is simply a reflection of how well the propagandists doing propping up this empty suit.

I think Carter had more likability when he was President (although some people found him creepy from the start)—it was after the people rejected him in 1980 that his nasty side became more evident. Bill Clinton is a scoundrel and a sociopath, but he also can appear charming on TV. Obama lacks that—he’s always hectoring and demeaning people, but his attitude seems to be “You had better pretend to like me or you will be called a racist.” Obama doesn’t seem to be able to turn off the hostility to people who disagree with him the way some politicians can.

Likeable? Who knew?

I have found him completely unlikeable since the very start, and I never knew what people saw in him then. And now that he is full of sneering arrogance and doesn’t even feel he has to hide it, he has become much more unlikeable.

I honestly don’t know what people found to like in him, with the exception of blacks, who will like anybody who tells them their problems are all because of their skin color.
