The Kool Aid must be wearing off big time!
Real Clear Politics: 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."
I have not seen all of Obama’s speech, but from what I saw Obama’s solutions seem better suited from what might be done AFTER the oil spill is brought under control rather that how to get the situation under control. Obama and his administration are still clueless about what the appropriate role for government should be in this situation. There still seems to be this stupid and irresponsible idea to leave BP running the show.
As far as Olberman and Matthews are concern, these two hacks are a day late and a dollar short. Both of these clowns did everything they could to shill for an Obama presidency. They foolishly believed that a man with no executive experience and no major accomplishments could somehow magically solve the major problems facing America. Now a situation has arisen where you simply cannot fake executive experience and these asses are braying at the moon.
I have little doubt that both Olberman and Matthews will be back to playing their roles as Obama apologists come 2012.
