    to interact with real people, it seems to come off badly. Look at all the awkward moments he's had with families of troops. He couldn't even invite Cindy Sheehan in for tea for half an hour, despite the fact that that was probably one of a handful of the most ruinous decisions of his presidency, jumpstarting the entire antiwar movement by giving people "permission," as it were, to speak out against the occupation of Iraq.  I think the idea of sitting down face to face with a real person and having to respond to their problems just scared him.
