Obama has no real leadership ability. This is because he does not have any personal one on one people skills. He is completely devoid of them. This is the reason he from the start he said the Republicans had to ride in the back of the bus. He knows he has no reasoning skills to try to bring anyone on board with his agenda. He has no influence skills. This is the reason he did not call Putin over Snowden and said "i shouldn't have to" which is irrelevant. He knows he has no interpersonal skills. When he does not have a prompter with a pre-written speech he spends more time hemmin and hawin than anything else. That press conference at the G-20 summit was a flop for him. He looked absolutely stupid. Reports are at the summit he looked isolated. This is why he campaigns rather than meets with people. Campaigning is his strong suit. Outside of the campaign he is a blithering idiot.
