Campaign Hiccups

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on June 15, 2012

I didn’t listen to President Obama’s speech yesterday (I didn’t listen to Mitt Romney’s either). But it really must have been bad if the press hated it. Usually, of course, the president gets rave reviews from the media, which goes out of its way to fawn over him. Not yesterday, though.

From the story: “. . . the speech was mainly a rehash of themes and ideas from the president’s recent stump speeches and his remarks were widely panned as overly long by the political press corps.” And the story has screenshots of tweets from exasperated journalists who again, are usually entirely willing to speak to the awesomeness that they believe is Barack Obama. Somehow, all of this ought to find its way into a Romney campaign ad.
