Of course, after this appearance, some of the far-right Fox Republicans went nutso - but not every conservative leaning American did.
In fact, conservative-leaning media personality Chris Cillizza agreed with most of America - including us. Cillizza said, "Here’s a fundamental fact of the 2012 presidential race: President Obama is cool. Mitt Romney isn’t." Cillizza then went on to point out even more cool things President Obama had done - like draining a 3-point jump shot on the first try in Kuwait:
Not to mention, how many other Presidents have we had that can do comedy schtick - and actually be funny - while at the White House Correspondents' Dinner?
Remember - the whole time knowing that President Obama was telling these jokes, he had just sent SEALs to kill the world's top terrorist. A guy who can keep his cool, and a straight face - in front of the media - when he's just made that kind of gutsy decision? Is VERY cool.
Of course, there's one of Team Randi's favorites: A President who can bust out Motown, on a whim - and sound damn good.
And the whole time he was doing all those cool things? He was also racking up a TON of accomplishments for the American people.
If Republicans want to know why Democrats - and many Independents - think President Obama is cool? It's because he did all those cool things - WHILE he accomplished great things for the American people.
And THAT is cool.
