Easiest task ever: turning Obama’s ‘cool’ into a liability


Trying to turn Obama’s “cool” into a liability? Do or do not. There is no try.

Done! Also, Obama ate a dog.

Oh, wait, did Tapper actually mean Obama has some cool? Since “cool” was in quotes, we thought he was being sarcastic.

It’s likely Tapper was referring to this American Crossroads video, “Cool,” that points out Obama has put a lot of effort into styling himself as a celebrity president. But is he cool? C’mon. There’s no “cool” to turn into a liability.

Sorry, slow jamming the news and calling Kanye West a jackass don’t make the guy too cool for school. In-the-tank media outlets may sell him that way, but that doesn’t make it true.

The right side of the Twitterverse has a few more reasons it’s time for the “Obama is cool” meme to die.

Young voters must realize that there is nothing 'cool' or 'hip' about Obama. His ideas are recycled, failed nonsense from the 1930's.

I'm mystified that Obama is considered 'cool'. The last time I checked, Fascism stopped being cool in 1939. #dustbinofhistory #tcot

And even if he was the hippest guy around (which makes us double over in giggle fits, by the way), how does that help anyone but The One?

Apparently #obama is 'cool'? Yeah… That'll fix the economy. Let's all be #democrats!

The majority young people are voting for Obama because he acts and seems cool, and being cool is important to run a country right? #notright
