Re: Re: Obama and Liberal Faith in Government

Eugene Robinson(!) piles on, with reference to the Oval Office speech last night:

The president was cool, determined, forceful — stylistically, all the things that the braying commentators said he had to be. But where was the substance? Specifically — and urgently — where was the new plan to contain the oil spill and protect the coastline? I wish I’d heard the president order the kind of all-out marshaling and deployment of resources that now seems imperative. But I didn’t.

That should leave a mark.  But does Obama have the self-awareness to notice?  My guess is he left the Oval Office patting himself on the back for another blockbuster performance.
