So WHY dear readers, do I care about this at all?? I don't care about Obama's baseball knowledge or lack thereof. I do think that what happened at the game and the subsequent interview again show that the man has absolutely no substance, but we all know this. He's a metrosexual, pseudo-intellectual who tries to put on the macho and fails miserably. I've got bigger balls than he does and I'm a chick.
The term poseur 'describes a person who adopts the dress, speech, and/or mannerisms of a group or subculture, generally for attaining acceptability within the group, yet who is deemed to not share or understand the values or philosophy of the subculture.' Obama has shown repeatedly that he cannot relate to any of the culture of the United States (maybe because he wasn't raised here), except for that very small subculture to which he was indocrinated (Ivy League socialist). The more he tries to look like a regular guy, the worse he looks (the 17 minute reply to a simple question). I think the term fits.
