I haven't seen President Obama in person, but I'd love to test my theory of retail politics against him.
Popular media invariably presents President Obama as a media deity - in images majestic, warm, wise, or pensive.
By contrast, the media often snaps Mitt Romney either from a distance, or from a bad angle. There is often suitably disparaging text to follow, as in this ABC OTUS article.
Compare the Starpulse gallery on Romney with the Starpulse gallery of President Obama.
Evidence to the contrary, the media has invented a mythical president who cries, holds our collective hand, and has compassion for the "poor," a statistical category President Obama has helped to enlarge.
