They Said What!!! MSNBC Trashes Obama BP Oil Spill Speech, Compares to Carter … “I Don’t Sense Executive Command”



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.

      Let me explain this to you.

      The MSNBC pundits were hoping to hear some really tough talk from Obama. They wanted him to come out with guns blazing against BP. So although you get a thrill out of seeing the left-wing TV media (which consists of a handful of MSNBC commentators) disappointed in Obama…the REASON they are disappointed is because he’s not militant enough for them. He’s not LIBERAL enough for them.

      Joe Scarborough is defending Obama’s speech right now on MSNBC (10:30 am Eastern) and pointing out the religious component of his speech. Joe said, “He doesn’t always go for the cheap rhetorical hit. I’d give the president more of a pass for not using this speech for political reasons.”

      If you weren’t so bent on criticizing the president, you’d realize that Obama is demonstrating a moderation that conservatives should love. And obviously the lefties don’t love it.

      I think Hell Froze Over and Pigs started flying last night! WHAT?!? When I heard this on the Mike Church show this morning I almost drove off the road.

      It’s about time people start realizing this guy is a puppet.

      It’s about time people start seeing this guy as INEFFECTIVE as a leader.

      I wonder if the tingling down Matthews leg this time was pee?

      Here’s a great Free Enterprise way to make a COMPANY
      successful: Hire an incapable idiot and give him unlimited
      hiring and spending powers. Let him operate secretly and
      do not require honest up-to-date reports and justifications.
      Encourage throwing your money at all problems that arise.
      Extend his schedule over and over. Soon you will have a
      Fantastically Profitable Company. (Oh, did I say Company
      or Country?).

      ALLEEN – you are the typical leftist little liberal trying to defend what is ROUNDLY being criticized IN ALL CIRCLES you twit!

      Don’t lecture us about what message he was trying to convey. See, we conservatives are not as dumb and as stupid as you tree hugging, make them drill in deep water where man can get to it, liberals think we are.

      He was trying to push his liberal agenda for cap and trade and whatever liberal leftist agenda he is trying to ram down our throats. Did he lift the moratorium on drilling? NOPE. In fact when over 70% of Louisiana residents said they want him to keep drilling. Do you know at a minimum he could 20K people their jobs?

      Joe Scarborough is a SCAB! Period. End of story.

      He has ZERO credibility amongst conservatives. He’s not even really a conservative. Uh, Obama and his religious component is laughable, considering Obama’s religious component for nearly two decades was the racist Farrahkan loving Rev. Wright.

      You don’t know SQUAT.

      Geez..I wonder why his approval ratings fell after last night’s “speech?”

      I wonder why more people think Bush handled Katrina than Obama has this oil spill?

      Maybe, Alleen, if you knew the facts and used common sense then you would know why THE MAJORITY of people are criticizing him.

      He gave no specifics.

      Answer this Ms. Liberal…why didn’t Obama accept the Netherlands offer on Day 3 to come and help with the clean up and waive the Jones Act like all of his precedessors have done during a national disaster? The Netherlands have more sophiticated ships that can suck the oil from the surface and reprocess it into clean water? Do some research on who backs the Jones Act you liberal moron!

      Instead, Kevin Costner’s machines are being “tested.” 32 of them when probably 10 monster ships from foreign countries could come and get more than 90% of this oil from the surface. If he accepts on Day 3, then the MILLIONS upon MILLIONS of oil that have leaked through that well could have been sucked up by now.

      Instead Obama waited 57 DAYS to give Americans a dumbed down and non specific speech that WE CAN SEE THROUGH.

      Let’s see you blame this on Bush when it was Clinton’s waiver on royalites paid on deep water horizon platforms that allowed these countries to drill in water. It was the environmentalists that pushed these wells from 500 feet of water to over 5K feet.

      It was the EPA who stepped in and said we couldn’t use FIRE BOOMS on Day 3 to burn the oil from the surface because of the alleged pollution in the air.

      You are now allowed to leave from your schooling!

      Even the FRIENDLY vultures are circling!

      This is what happens when you elect someone with zero experience to the most important position in the world. This bum couldn’t manage a PhotoMart film drop-off kiosk!

      Hey, BP donated just under $1 million to O’bummer’s campaign. He’s certainly not about to kick their asses! They’re one of his golden geese!

    9. Michelle on June 16th, 2010 10:47 pm

      You go Scott….Sick of listening to these liberal pukes make excuses when they have no clue what they are talking about. They never do any research to actually get the facts but rather keep repeating the same old tire mantra.

      Give em hell brother….

      Well he seems to really be off his mark since the great BEATLE Paul McCartney visited the white house.

      Well…we all KNOW Paul…LOL

      And there is a very good chance Paul brought some pot with him to the white house and had a smoke there as that’s what Paul does. He smoked it at Buckingham Palace and there’s a 101% chance he did the same at the white house. Not that there is anything wrong with Paul smoking his herb.

      And there is a 110% chance that BaROCK smoked it with him. A Beatle and a President smoking and parting will be GREAT in the book he his writing for when he leave office.

      I think we have a president that went in with good intentions but got SMOTHERED in the BUBBLE of Washington and has the WRONG staff around him telling/advising him where his next speech is and that THEY have everything under CONTROL.

      He seems to be DIZZY from going from one speech to the next and NOT really sure ALL the business is being taken care of by his staff.
