Even liberals are turning on Obama

Again, I think my head might explode if I actually break down the huge turd Obama took all over the Oval Office last night, but lets see what others think:

FACT CHECK: Obama left blanks in oil spill speech

MSNBC Hosts Not Impressed
Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann reacted poorly. Olbermann said, "It was a great speech if you were on another planet for the last 57 days. ... Nothing specific at all was said." Matthews said of Obama's reliance on experts, "This meritocracy has gone too far." Video here, highlights here.

Ambition Evident, But Few Ideas
The Washington Post's Michael Gerson writes, "The main impression left by President Obama’s address on the oil spill is the chasm between the ambition of its commitments and the thinness of its policies. ... The setting of the Oval Office creates an expectation of decisive executive action. ... But someone at the White House is responsible for putting Obama in a dramatic setting with little worth saying." The Atlantic's Josh Green agrees, "this speech was primarily about containing the damage to his administration, and was not the pivot point in the energy debate that many people were hoping for."

Even White House Acknowledges Poor Reception T
he Atlantic's Marc Ambinder notes, "DNC focus grouped Obams's speech; independent white men in Ohio. ... Sign of rough response to speech: DNC usually stays mum about focus groups. Tonight they're distributing the findings. ... This suggests that the WH is aware of the relatively poor reviews of the speech."

I read it. There is not one lie cited in the article. There, I've broken down at least one lie in your post.
