NEW YORK — Likability. It’s been Mitt Romney’s Achilles’ heel for years. U.S. voters, polling shows again and again, just don’t like him all that much. And, the same polls show, they like President Obama a good deal better.
Now, with Obama apparently opening a lead over Romney as the presidential campaign enters its final phase, Romney is trying to diminish one of the president’s greatest attributes.

Statements like these exude an air of ineptitude and outright stupidity.
I wouldn’t be friends with Obama if he had a Ping Pong table. Stalin on the other hand......
I could see him extending a sincere compliment to an adversary, but there is virtually nothing about Barry that is likeable.
Why even go down that path, Mittens?
People will go for the leader who appears strong, not weak Mr. Romney.
Don’t forget clean and articulate...
You sound like a fire breathing zealot moron if you deny reality and play only to your base by claiming that the guy is not friendly or likable.
I am sure the local moron is friendly and likable also - but you don't hire him to teach advanced calculus. While pointing that out you just sound mean (and wrong) if you say he is not only unqualified but also not friendly and likable.
This is just stupid of Romney. I truly do hate this kind of thing. The guy is a cold, mean, contemptible MFer. He exudes all the warmth of a snake. I take that back, snakes are actually quite cuddly in comparison.
+1 (what he said...)
STFU “M itt”!!!
If you can’t say anything bad about your opponent in an election, dont say anything at all.
Thanks for the reminder. He’s very clean behind those big ears. And he has crisp pleats in his pants! Thrill time! Tingles all over!
Obama is an arrogant jerk! How can anyone find him likeable???
Their reality will never be my reality! :)
You sound like a fire breathing zealot moron if you deny reality...
Their reality will never be my reality! :)
Romney: Obama exudes an air of likability and friendliness
Wee Willie tries so hard to make friends...
He is not likeable. He’s an arrogant, condescending pompous ass. The only people who find him likeable are those who have not observed him closely or his ideological enablers.
Romney = McCain 2.0
Four more years. Hope we survive.
Dittos Mr. K. Is he going to start chastising his own supporters like McCain did next? "Oh you have nothing to fear from a 2nd term of Obama!"
Sadly Mitt and many of his type will be deluded. The spirit of this earth comes and is upon him.
Would Chris Christie have said this?
Like someone told me recently...the people that like to be spoonfed.
Do we have anything to fear from the 2nd term of an Obama presidency, Mitt?
Please, Mitt.... drop the McCain Campaig talking points on the ground and step away from them... Step away from the McCain talking points.
Dammit all... Why, oh why do Republicans feel this driving urge to express admiration of Obama at critical moments in a campaign???? Does Obama ever reciprocate? Hell no!!! He goes for the throat 24/7! Stop it, Mitt!!!!!
The guy always has been and will be an inept pol.
I know, I supported him back in MA.
Willard never found any of his Conservative opponents to “exude an air of likability and friendliness”
Herman Cain is one of the most likable and friendly man but Willard dissed him...
Same with Newt and Michele Bachmann...
Ever since the RNC ended I’ve been wondering where the Super Pacs are who should be skinning Zero and the ‘Rats alive, since Mitt obviously doesn’t have the sand to do it!
Obamugabe is not opening a lead. Idiots.
The president exudes an air of likability and friendliness, which is endearing, Romney told ABC News. But at the same time, I think people recognize that he has not done the job they expected him to do and that he promised he would do.
I don’t know how you could be around 0bama without feeling the aura of the prince of the air, his ideological father.
This statement exudes an air of lack of discernment of good and evil.
Hey Mitt..all enablers are really nice a likable people.
Look beyond the wall and you will see exactly how bastardly this SOB is.
You sound like an idiot.
BJ Clinton is scum. But he is a likable and charming scum.
One would be an idiot in denial of reality and underestimating your foe to deny it.
But... but but McCain was a war hero!/
Mitt went wobbly on us.
THERE, Romney, you can use that line next time you feel the need to put a foot in your mouth!
I wonder who Mitt Romney will vote for...for President. He seems to be one of the undecided.
no he doesn’t!!!
Obie exudes “please punch my face” arrogance.
Wish he wouldn’t say stuff like that.
I just hope that he has a reason to say this, and isn’t just being a wimp.
Obama never struck me as being “likable.”
do you think they’ll be nice to you now, Mittens?
"Exuding an air of likability and friendliness", while at the same time acting in a manner that is destructive (passionate support for partial birth abortion; support of sodomite lifestyles; use of race and class warfare; hatred of American history and the Constitution; etc) - just makes him deceptive - but doesn't change his stripes (or scales, as the case may be)...
He’s a likable guy but just hasn’t done the job very well.
Yeah, that’s going to get the voters to remove a sitting president.
Romney is planning to beat a snake with a wet noodle.
