Keith Olbermann & Chris Matthews Trash Obama Speech

by Chris Bounds on June 16, 2010

Apparently Obama is having trouble wooing even the most liberal media darlings.

Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews go back and forth trashing Obama’s gulf speech as full of hot air.  I did not watch his speech, but based on their commentary it sounded like it was a typical Obama speech – lots of smooth talk with no substance.

Olbermann: “It was a great speech if you were on another planet for the last 57 days.”

Olbermann: “Nothing specific at all was said.”

Matthews: “No direction.”

Olbermann: “I don’t think he aimed low, I don’t think he aimed at all. It’s startling.”

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.”

This is not the first time Keith Olbermann has lost his patience with Obama.

Where was this desire for answers back in 2008 during the campaign?  Maybe even small minds can put down the kool-aid.

Do not watch Chris Matthews special tonight! That's my plan.

I guess then, by their own definition, that makes them racists for criticizing the President. I mean, why not? These same people have called people critical of the President, racists since he was sworn in.

Ya – although they may be turning against Obama slightly now I am not convinced they are going to turn into a fair & balanced Fox-like news program.
