I'll tell you what. I do NOt like that he didn't show his face or let us hear his voice until a few days after the Christmas incident.
The main purpose of a figure head..a leader is to be the face and voice of calm during a crisis. To be their for the people in a time of crisi..right away..ASAP
To say to the people, "I'm on it"..with a face and/or a voice to go with it (NOT a press release)
This was my problem with Bush..he went missing during 9/11 and during Katrina.
I was hoping, expecting, Obama to NOT do us like that. (surely his camp had known how much bush had been critisized for that kind of conduct?)
and then the NOT wearing a tie..it felt..deisrespectful..of the gravity of the matter and his role as The president of the United States of America.
He needs to rethink his advisors..people are paid to be experts in this kind fo thing..they dropped the ball and gave bad advice to him..I think..and he dropped the ball by following that bad advice...
(I mean he basically HANDED this to any critics or politcal enemies he might have)
just sayin (for future reference)....
