Politico has given seven very damaging points about the perception in America about the current administration.
It seems like Politico is begging the White House to alter the obvious perceptions... in spite of the fact that their seven "stories" are exactly who actually sits in the White House.
In other words, if I could speak directly to Politico, I would say, "Look, the whole campaign was a major charade, and you and millions of Americans were duped by the charade. I know you wanted to 'believe' and I grant you that desire... however, when you clearly see what you describe as appearing to be reality... when it actually is reality... then opine that you still want to believe what you were duped into believing... I would say it is time to grow up... Politico... there really isn't a Santa Clause ."
7 stories Obama doesn't want told
Presidential politics is about storytelling. Presented with a vivid storyline, voters naturally tend to fit every new event or piece of information into a picture that is already neatly framed in their minds.
No one understands this better than Barack Obama and his team, who won the 2008 election in part because they were better storytellers than the opposition....
A year into his presidency, however, Obama’s gift for controlling his image shows signs of faltering. As Washington returns to work from the Thanksgiving holiday, there are several anti-Obama storylines gaining momentum....
Here are seven storylines Obama needs to worry about:
He thinks he’s playing with Monopoly money
Too much Leonard Nimoy
That’s the Chicago Way
He’s a pushover
He sees America as another pleasant country on the U.N. roll call, somewhere between Albania and Zimbabwe
He’s in love with the man in the mirror
Now... go to the link and read all of the ways Politico tries to educate the White House on how the White House should "present the story" instead of how the White House is actually acting.
The problem is that the White House would have to change who they actually are.
I don't see that happening.
