President Obama is the new Cary Grant

Just think about it. President Obama is the new Cary Grant. He?s cool Women's Greg Bird Jersey , calm, collected, smart, funny, handsome, eloquent and well spoken. I wrote this on September 12 and yesterday Stephen Colbert called him ?the Meryl Streep of presidents.? So that means he can nail things in one take.

The similarities with Cary Grant don?t end there. Cary Grant was the ultimate in sexy sophistication. He dressed great, was athletic, and had a great smile. He defined ?Metro sexual? (before that term was invented) with his impeccable grooming and charm. On the silver screen, Cary Grant moved gracefully and knew his audience. He made everything look easy and natural.

He was the perfect man ? onscreen. You wanted to watch him and hear that great voice ? words just melted on his tongue. Both women and men loved Cary Grant, and according to a 2008 poll, people still consider Cary Grant (who died in 1986) to be the most popular actor of all time. He moved across all socio economic, political and cultural lines ? everyone loved him ? men, women, minorities, young, old, rich and poor. Barack Obama is the first person to even come close as far as politicians are concerns. And, actors ? forget it ? even though I love George Clooney ? he is no Cary Grant!

Cary Grant?s career was a testament to Old Hollywood; he knew what he was good at. He did comedy, drama, satire and Alfred Hitchcock movies! President Obama inhabits all of those roles today and not always by choice. He also knows what he is good at and never strays from his convictions.

I have seen most, if not all of Cary Grant?s movies. For those of you who share my Cary Grant obsession stay with me here. Can you imagine President Obama playing these Cary Grant characters: The bachelor in the ?Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer,? a guy who is accused of doing something he didn?t do and has to do penance by ?chaperoning? a 17 year old Shirley Temple who is infatuated with him. All the while seeming puzzled and finally morphing in to a good sport, goofing it up and winning the affection of Temple?s big sister who is a very smart, accomplished lawyerjudge ? played superbly by Myrna Loy.

President Obama could easily be Mr. Blandings, in ?Mr. Blandings Building His Dream House.? Cary Grant played that role with a dry wit that was his trademark, verbally sparring with his on screen wife, (again) Myrna Loy. The catastrophe of the home building, and the hilarity that ensued! That movie has one of the greatest comedic moments in film history when Myrna Loy has her ?infamous chat with the painters? on the paint colors she wants for each room. I can just see Michele Obama talking to the painters in the White House. The Blandings? even had two very smart little girls.
