As an Aussie living in Switzerland I can certainly say that your last point is true!

The president should get rid of those empty suits, or in some cases, pants suits, he has working for him, and hire you as his Press Secretary (maybe it's called something else now, in these days of "media").

I think that the problem with President Obama is one of perception, largely due to the fact that, with information having shifted to visually oriented electronics, instead of print, candidates are chosen like they were on "American Idol." Even Slick Willie called Governor Perry "a good looking son-of-a-gun." I am not making that up!

When more people learn that Governor Perry shot, and killed, a coyote, that was out to get his dog, when said, unleashed dog was jogging with the governor, it will be interesting to see if that helps him or hurt him. Given the number of Baby Boomers who grew up on all those t.v. westerns, in the late 1950s and early '60s, it's a distressing thought.

Governor Perry, looks nothing like the late Richard Boone, but he might become Paladin for the 21st Century - "Have gun will travel."

How can President Obama best that one?
