2. He doesn't understand people
He understands the electorate. The people he should understand/try to understand are the poor, the unemployed, the homeless. He doesn't seem to care about them at all. When was the last time he visted a tent city? When has he tried to figure out why people are unemployed, and make an effort to remedy the causes? Never. Instead, he sucks up to Jeffrey Immelt and corporate America and Wall Street, and siphons as much campaign loot from them as he can. And he is constantly sucking up to the military, making appearance after appearance before them, trying to wrap himself up in the military uniform. And now he lets the possibilty of war with Iran just sit out there, scaring the hell out of people, for no damn reason. Contrary to what he told us in the campaign, where he said he was going to use diplomacy with Iran. Another lie.

What is it that is "human" about him, beyond appearances that he is promoting?
