Matthews: The thrill is gone
As Campaign Spot’s Jim Geraghty said this morning on the show … it just hasn’t been the same since he had his leg amputated. Another Chris Classic.
Chris is trying to explain to Andrea Mitchell why Obama’s ratings are in the tank. As Chris says, he brought it on himself by being elitist. I like the little argument over Obama’s use of the teleprompter. The lefties are so loss. Now this is the change I hoped for, heh?
AP at HotAir has a great take on this one.
Give him credit, though, at least for recognizing that The One should be doing less talking and more listening. Granted, the people he’d say we should be listening to are those who think the big problem with O-Care is that it lacks a public option, but he’s at least in the neighborhood of the problem here. For further reading in the “messaging” vein — and you’ll be hearing a lot of this on Wednesday, no doubt — see Tina Brown’s meditation today on how Obama can change course. Hint: More robust White House arts-and-concerts initiatives in the grand style of Jackie Kennedy. That’ll quiet these wingnuts down a bit.
