    A former aide to President Barack Obama is rushing to apologize for her candid analysis of Obama’s interpersonal skills after The Drudge Report spotted and promoted those remarks to the site’s vast audience.

    “The truth is, Obama doesn’t call anyone, and he’s not close to almost anyone. It’s stunning that he’s in politics, because he really doesn’t like people,” said Neera Tanden — now president of the powerful Center for American Progress — in an interview with New York Magazine. ”My analogy is that it’s like becoming Bill Gates without liking computers.”

    I get the impression that Michelle dislikes people even more than Barack.

    I believe I heard the democrat Kristin Powers say the same thing last night on Fox. Said she wondered why he was in politics. She is one democrat who has said from the beginning that Obama was lying about Libya!

    Probably no more than Mitt Romney hates all those the espousing of his false religion is sending to an eternal lake of fire.

    It seems obvious to me that he thinks people are beneath him.

    Y'all are just grasping at straws now. Deal with the stuff you know based on the man's record and what he has said.

    All this heresay character assassination is the very same stuff conservatives have complained about from the other side for years.

    Amazing how an election will make folks act.

    These are the same things the left is saying about Mitt Romney and the 47% statement didn't help.

    But that's why you deal with substantive issues. Whether or not either candidate likes/dislikes people can't be established. As I'm sure it would be easy to find folks on either side who believes the other sides candidate doesn't like people or certain people.

    Whatever his religion testimony is that Romney cares for people. Of course like the RCC good works are required of Mormons.

    And that's just your opinion just like the aides statement is just an opinion.

    Let's look at this insipid statement of yours.

    You think that Romney hates people so he shares his false religion so that people will spend eternity in the lake of fire? :rolleyes:

    I would guess that Romney shares his faith because he believes in it.

    What would you suppose that Obama's motive is in advocating and enabling the killing of the unborn?

    Because he loves the unborn?

    What does liking people have to to with a presidential election. Dogs are more loyal and dependable and friendly than people.

    We would be better off with a dog than with Obama as president then.

    Seriously, I do expect president to be concerned about more than himself.
