They Said What!!! MSNBC Trashes Obama BP Oil Spill Speech, Compares to Carter … “I Don’t Sense Executive Command”
TALK ABOUT LOST IN SMALLNESS …
This was supposed to be President Barack Hussein Obama’s most important speech of his presidency to date … instead it was a microcasm of his leadership with the BP oil spill crisis, an EPIC FAILURE.
Of all networks, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann blasted Barack Obama’s speech. Absolutely trashed it. When MSNBC brutalizes your speech, one that was supposed to be the most important of his presidency … OBAMA YOU GOT A PROBLEM!It would appear that Matthews and Olbermann have lost that Obama luvin feeling. Obama has become what many thought prior to the 2008 election, inexperienced, underwhelming and in over his head. Obama and Carter are now becoming interchangeable words.
“It was a great speech if you were on another planet for the last 57 days.”
From Real Clear Politics, transcript of comments”
Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann and Howard Fineman react to President Obama’s Oval Office Address on the oil spill. Here are the highlights of what the trio said:
Olbermann: “It was a great speech if you were on another planet for the last 57 days.”
Matthews compared Obama to Carter.
Olbermann: “Nothing specific at all was said.”
Matthews: “No direction.”
Howard Fineman: “He wasn’t specific enough.”
Olbermann: “I don’t think he aimed low, I don’t think he aimed at all. It’s startling.”
Howard Fineman: Obama should be acting like a “commander-in-chief.”
Matthews: Ludicrous that he keeps saying [Secretary of Energy] Chu has a Nobel prize. “I’ll barf if he does it one more time.”
Matthews: “A lot of meritocracy, a lot of blue ribbon talk.”
Matthews: “I don’t sense executive command.”
It was not lost on The Other McCain that Matthews, Olberman and Fineman were less than impressed with Obama’s rhetoric.
Watch the full EPIC FAILURE speech HERE and witness Barack Obama’s complete lack of leadersip and lack of Executive command for yourself.
How did a cross section of average Americans feel about Obama’s BP Oil spill speach … mostly they felt it bombed and so has he. Check out the VIDEO at RCP and the Frank Luntz focus group where a majority of the folkd felt the speech was 50 days too late.
I am in complete agreement with Hot Air, pinch me … Am I awake? The Gateway Pundit asks, “does Obama not put the thrill up Chris Matthew’s leg any more? It would appear that Obama’s best days are on the golf course.
