LACK OF EMOTION ON A HIGHLY EMOTIONAL ISSUE IS A TURN OFF
The days of keeping a “stiff upper lip” and not showing any emotion are over. In fact, when a person isn’t being real and showing real emotion in a real situation, especially a negative situation, it makes you wonder if they are disconnected as a human being or if they have some other agenda or whether they are hiding something.
If a politician who is supposed to represent the people, including their emotions, doesn’t show any emotion with regard to a crises, it is disconcerting.
Could Obama’s hiding his emotion in this crises, reflect that he is hiding his strong connection with BP and associated financial gains? Many believe this may be the case.
When Obama campaigned for voters in this last election, there was a lot of emotion in his campaign speeches . He was not deadpan and emotionless as he is now with regard to this BP oil spill. In fact his emotion filled speeches inspired people.
So now during this major crises , when voters are seeing his lack of emotion, his lack of outrage and his lack of willingness to hear from them – his unwillingness to listen to their emotional feelings, Obama has turned a lot of people off.
SUPPORTER SPIKE LEE IS TURNED OFFF AND TELLS OBAMA TO ” GO OFF”
In fact he turned one of his biggest supporters off. He turned film off producer, director Spike Lee who in an interview told Obama to “Go Off.” He even remarked on CNN that Obama is usually a low key guy but this is the time he need to “Go Off” because this is a disaster.
He also said that there is a similarity in Bushes response to Katrina and Obama’s response to this oil disaster– the slow response.” Most would agree. What took him so long to react?
People are as upset about the oil spill as they are to Obama’s slow response to a disaster that can not only affect the environment but people’e lives.
Crude oil contains chemical as such as benzene that can cause cancer and leukemia. It is dangerous if it is ingested in your body in any way.If you breathe it studies show that it has caused severe lung problems and lung cancers. When they smeared crude oil n the body of mice they developed cancerous tumors. L
In the above photo op we see Obama with some crude oil he picked up from the ground on his finger. Let’s hope for his sake that that Obama washed his finger thoroughly before he ate or picked up one of his cigarettes for a smoke. How ironic is that!
Let’s also hope that he didn’t have any fish for lunch or dinner that was caught in the gulf since this spill occurred, Note that now when eat fish you may be taking a huge risk. Like th fish, when when you swim in that area you can injest oil particles which can have serious consequences to your life.
WHITE HOUSE SPOKESPEOPLE MADE A HUGE MISTAKE!!!!
Emotion is a great thing! It shows that you car. If Obama visibly showed upset or outrage it would be a catharsis for the American people. It would show someone who cared as much as they did and who was equally upset as they were about the situation.
The While House PR people and spokespeople just made a huge mistake when they defensively said that if emotion could stop the oil spill from happening Obama would be on the rooftops yelling nd shouting.”
How dare them give this snarky disrespectful answer to the American People. We expect t our leaders and especially our President to react with human emotions to serious events that could seriously effect the environment and have serious consequences to the lives of citizens .
If people are clamoring for emotion they are obviously reacting to the fact that they are perceiving Obama as uncaring . His slow response combined with his lack of overt emotion seem to many voters like he doesn’t give a damn. It is like he doesn’t care. Add to that, the fact that he hot only stood by for well over a month, but he went on a fun filled vacations.
Many Americans see that behavior as appalling. They feel that he needed to be on top of this major crises 24/7 and go nowhere until it was dealt with and fixed.
It’s like your landlord going on vacation and leaving you stranded in a flooded apartment because of an overflowing toilet and not doing anything about it.
OBAMA LOST A LOT OF SUPPORT AND WILL CONTINUE TO LOSE SUPPORT UNLESS HE GET’S REAL WITH HIS EMOTION AND COMMUNICATION
Even if you have been an Obama supporter in the past or you are currently a supporter and think he can do no wrong, you have to admit that it is a very bad thing when your leader doesn’t share the same outrage over the situation as you. It;s time he get real and that means expressing his real emotions.
While being low key and level headed may be a good thing in most cases, when the environment is getting screwed up and your life may be in danger long term you need to show some rage.
I am not a political person and have no political agenda whatsoever. I merely report what I see objectively and what I see is something very bad as as far Obama is concerned .
How he reacted to this crises or didn’t react, did not show strong leadership. Perhaps he was thinking too politically- about how his BP financial supporters would feel. But what he really needed to be thinking about was how his constituents would fee. They feel terrible and they are angry!
LOSE THE TELEPROMPTER AND SPEAK FROM YOUR HEART MR. OBAMA
If Obama wants to redeem himself he needs to get out there and speak to the American Citizens without a teleprompter. He needs to speak to them from his heart and honestly explain why he waited so long to not stop this problem, Why didn’t he react sooner.?
And when he speaks to the American public without his teleprompter, he needs to communicate with real emotion. If not, he will have lost the next election as far as many voters are concerned.
