Stop, our aching sides can’t take much more!
President Obama was interviewed on ABC’s “This Week” and he actually made that outlandish claim.
Asked about critcism of his handling of foreign policy, Pres Obama says he's more concerned about "getting it right" than "style points."

Bungled, shmungled! Y’all just care about “style points.” Unlike President Obama: He’s Super Serious, You Guys. He is not a total disaster of a president, you see. He’s just not stylish enough. Or something.
Obama might be “rejecting criticism” (of course he is), but citizens are rejecting his ludicrous claim:
Such a lie RT @thehill: "I'm less concerned about style points. I’m much more concerned with getting the policy right,” Obama tells ABC

@JonahNRO I wonder which 1 of his campaign staff came up with that 1! Our government is being run by a public relations firm!

Wow, Obama says every1's panning him not for a disastrous foreign policy, but b/c of bad "style" points. #tcot

This Twitter user does bring up a valid exit point.
Giggling madly. Embrace the power of “and,” Mr. President. Disastrous policies and lack of “style points!”
White House scrambling to cope with new POTUS directive to prioritize policy substance over style points. Carney hit hardest.
