Halo Slipping – “The Thrill Is Gone”

Jim Geraghty pointed this out … so … I watched. Here’s what Jim wrote over at National Review:

I can hardly believe what I’m watching on MSNBC right now. Chris Matthews is almost critical — no, not even almost, he’s flat-out critical of President Obama on the economic front.

Howard Fineman of Newsweek says Obama has been “grim and a little distant at the same time … Tim Geithner hasn’t inspired any confidence anywhere, as far as I can tell.”

Eugene Robinson: “I actually referred to him as Doogie Howser, Treasury Secretary, and I think it’s a little unfair.” Much laughter ensues.

Here’s the video … with editing for brevity. My favorite part is where Chris thinks Obama should go away for a few weeks and learn the economy. Ha!
