Appearing in today’s N&R— Cal Thomas on President Obama:
Those “cannibals” who recently turned up in Miami aren’t the only people eating their own. Following President Obama’s 54-minute snoozer of a speech in Ohio last week, even his “friends” are beginning to feed on him.
…Boring was one of the kinder things said about Obama’s speech, which rivaled Bill Clinton’s address to the 1988 Democratic National Convention. Clinton’s speech was so boring he received his loudest applause when he stopped talking.
…On liberal MSNBC, Jonathan Alter called Obama’s Ohio speech, “one of the worst speeches I’ve ever heard Barack Obama make.” That network’s Mike O’Brien tweeted before the speech was over, begging the president to stop. ABC News reporter Devin Dwyer tweeted that the speech was “more lecture or courtroom arg than rally.”
Needless to say Bill O’Reilly wasn’t impressed either, calling the president’s press conference at the G20 summit one of the boring he’s seen in his 37 years in the news business. Not on;y was the president boring, but he appeared clueless about the economic situation in Europe, which was my gut reaction when watching the press conference. Not claiming to know any more or any less —- I was just looking for insight from the leader of the free world, and I got nothing.
