No, I think typist means that that most American's don't think Paul looks presidential or commands a certain type of respect that is needed in order for the American people to think he is strong enough to lead.
I know what you mean. But for me, I have no problem with how Paul looks, speaks or carries himself etc. I just think he's too far off in one direction to be able to lead the country effectively. He would send his proposals to Congress, and they would laugh and send them back. Nothing would get done.
A perfect example in two words ...Sarah Palin (who in my eyes is interchangeable with any of the following: michele Bachman, george Bush, Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Donald Trump, et al and yes...even the latest...Chris Christie....
Ah, be careful about lumping Christie in to that group, imho. I agree the others often look and act like cartoon characters, but Christie is different. From what I've seen so far anyway. As example, he's the only one of that group that could actually beat Obama.
only because he commands a presence of leadership in their eyes yet no one even knows what he stands for yet..and still they rally around him....
He's a classic Republican governor, with a real talent for straight talk, something that's been sorely lacking. His personal presence is actually that of guy who is way too fat, a reality he very frankly comments on himself.
I don't think he'll run, as he's already said too many times he won't. If he were to run now, he'd flush his straight talk brand down the toilet.
Watch for him next time up, when there's no incumbent to run against. Christie is a smart fellow, and that's the smart move.
