    You can see my analogy though right? With Obama?

    •  Oh, definitely. (0+ / 0-)

      The problem is, if you're correct with your analogy, it actually proves one of the claims that all of his opponents had about him: All talk, no action.

      I'm still hoping that he'll turn this around.

        I don't mean to say that he was just "all talk".
        I don't believe that.

        The point of using the analogy was that these are 2 different types of jobs really, that require 2 diff. skill sets.

        And maybe he's better at the one than he is at the other. Take the case of me and my husband, for example.  He would suck at hunting (which was my job) and I would suck at farming (more what he does).

        That doesn't mean that we don't care about our clients though.  Or that we're 'all talk' or anything.  It's about skills. I'm good at the hunt but not all the logistical stuff and patience needed to care for a client afterwards.

        Whereas my hubby is kinda shy and doesn't like the challenge  of the hunt.  He'd rather be there afterwards solving all those problems that would drive someone like me crazy!

        Maybe it's even more than just 2 diff. skill sets.  You could even go so far as to say that they are 2 diff. PERSONALITY types.

        But hey, this is just one person's theory. I'm just throwing this out there...
