Absolutely spot on. Bernard Goldberg is one of the most venerated news professionals who came out a few years ago calling out his compadres on their media bias and again in another book on the media’s ‘Slobbering Affair with Obama” in 2008. His article up at BernardGoldberg.com is about how Obama has become just a talking head with no action. Hits home more than anything else I’ve read.
“How many times can we listen to this (seemingly) over-confident politician, who oozes coolness and style, tell us about his big, transformational, bold ideas – ideas about how if we only give him four more years, the sun will shine again in America, promises about he will not rest until every American has a good job, declarations about how he would heal the planet and harness the sun and the wind, assurances about how he will make sure families don’t go broke sending their kids to college, and how he will make life better for the poor and the middle class and the veterans and the downtrodden, grandiosity about how he will save our factories and small businesses and our cities and our farms.
Once this was stirring, rousing stuff. Now, they’re just words — empty, tired words.”
Read the rest. Pass it around.
UPDATE: Ed Morrissey with a round up of bad reactions for Obama’s “State of the Union” speech. Verdict remains the same.
The Commander in Chief at Work!
