    of how, I believe, Obama appears to devote more energy towards and care more about effective public relations than effective public policy. Sure, we all like Michelle and the girls and find them to be an attractive role model of a family, but in the end we elected him--and only him--to do a job, not make us ooh and ahh with childish delight at visual imagery and verbal proficiency.

    Of course, Hollywood, the master of image over reality and ground zero for a limousine liberalism meant to smooth over the guilt of success, wealth and the good life as the rest of the country suffers, is only too happy to play along. I find the whole charade to be rather sickening, and certainly not impressive, even though our political process all but requires it, for the bucks and PR.
