Has Obama lost his shine?
Articulate, eloquent – words used to describe Barack Obama in past years. Obama’s articulate and eloquent manner played strongly in the 2008 election. He looked good.
But now, a confident, equally articulate and eloquent competitor is on the stage. The eloquent college professor never earned his stripes in the business world where success is NOT assured. And thus he cannot speak with the conviction of experience.
Mitt Romney, the articulate business owner CAN speak with conviction and passion because he’s been there and done that.
Obama doesn’t look so good when he’s toe-to-toe with an equal, perhaps better, competitor. Especially when the competitor has the conviction of experience, the passion and love of country.
Maybe Obama looked good in the last election because everyone else looked so dull.
