Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Obama’s DNC acceptance speech bombed, says…MSM?

His constituents and the MSM (pardon the redundancy) are mortified that their boy didn’t deliver the goods as well as Bubba did the night before.  Some of the biggest B.O. sycophants are disappointed and/or panicked.

A rundown of the reactions here.  A handful of excerpts, though:

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer: “A Lot Of Stuff We’ve Heard Before.” CNN’S WOLF BLITZER: “Going on to the next chapter right now, Jessica Yellin, our Chief White House Correspondent. You sat with me. We listened together. I thought there would be more specifics. There were a lot of goals expressed, generalities, a lot of stuff we’ve heard before. I didn’t hear any specific new initiative that the President unveiled.” (CNN, 9/6/12)

CBS’ Bob Schieffer: “It Just Didn’t Have That Spark.” SCHIEFFER: “But this as not the kind of speech that Bill Clinton made last night. It just didn’t have that spark.” (CBS, 9/6/12)

ABC News’ Rick Klein: “Strange Silence Prevailing In The Arena.” “Almost no confetti at #DNC2012, and strange silence prevailing in the arena” (, 9/6/12)

The Washington Post’s “The Fix”: “Certainly Not Among The Best He Has Ever Delivered…” “One person you won’t see in winners and losers is President Obama. His speech was certainly not among the best he has ever delivered — the #1 seed in those rankings is his 2007 Iowa Jefferson-Jackson dinner address — and, at times, it felt more like a State of the Union address rather than a convention acceptance speech.” (The Washington Post, 9/6/12)

The Associated Press: “Obama Urged Voters To Stay Patient Even Though His Economic Policies Have Failed To Fully Fix The American Economy.” “Obama urged voters to stay patient even though his economic policies have failed to fully fix the American economy. Once the candidate of hope, Obama’s message was hang in there.” (The Associated Press, 9/6/12)

  1. Almost seems like the media/campaign press corps is turning against him. They didn’t even try to boost his speech by lauding the greatness of it, cuz it wasn’t there. Hmmmmm. What’s going on here? Looking for a sympathy plea from the voters? Could be. Or, did the ovomit just feel so arrogant that he didn’t think he needed to give a stellar performance? Not that I ever thought he gave a stellar performance, ever. He just reads a teleprompter really well. So, what happend? Maybe, he thought that Clinton’s speech of the night before was good enough to get him re-elected? Lots of questions. Maybe his handlers let him know that they are giving up on him and saving up for Hilary in 2016? In my dreams that would be the situation.
    What a mess the demonrat convention turned out to be. Very amateurish and out of kilter when compared to the RNC of the week before. Good.
    Liberalism is serious mental disorder. And, it showed big time this week.

  2. “Even Though His Economic Policies Have Failed To Fully Fix The American Economy”
    WTHECK?! They have failed to even PARTIALLY fix the American economy!! That’s like saying, “Smashing his engine with a sledgehammer failed to FULLY REPAIR the busted cylinder”. It did absolutely, positively NOTHING to fix it (either Obama’s policies or smashing an engine), or the comment “Certainly Not Among The Best He Has Ever Delivered” by the Washington Post! They are still trying to carry his water for him. That statement is as absurd as, “The turd he left in the toilet smelled LESS attractive than the roses he bought for his wife”, rather than “he stunk up the place”.
    The media is still trying, even when he makes it that hard on them!

  3. First, there was nothing in the speech that most anybody who frequents this blog would agree with. However, my impression was, unlike Romney’s speech, Obama’s speech was ment to rally the base. The President, does not have the overwhelming support of Independents like he had in ’08. In fact it looks like Independents might slightly break for Romney. If his base does not come out in huge numbers, like in ’08, Obama has no hope. So it was a rally up the base speech, and he did the job. The question is will the fire keep burning for the Dem base until Eolection Day?

  5. It must have crushed them to do a bit of real journalism… but it didn’t take long to get back into back Obama at any price mode.
