First Responses To Obama’s Address
Posted by Dim Bulb on January 27, 2010
If you want the progressive response you can just tune into one of the Obama news networks (i.e., any major outlet NOT Fox News). The AP does have up a fact check on Obama’s speech, but they will not follow it us, and the ONN’s will not carry it.
Keep in mind that most of these were posted during/immediately after the speech, some are background to the speech.
Not The Change America Wanted. Editorial piece by Clifford Orwin.
When Conventional Liberalism Fails, What Next? Commentary by Jennifer Rubin (haven’t read it yet).
Heritage Foundation Response. I suspect that in the coming days that the Heritage Foundation blog, THE FOUNDRY, will have a great deal of insightful commentary and critique.
NewsBusters Live Chat. Mostly brief quips from regular people. In coming days NB’s will be posting on the media’s handling (read “selling”) of the speech.
Gateway Pundit. Several posts are up. The first is rather lengthy post consisting of some introductory material followed by the author’s live time responses to various parts of the speech. The second deals with the Republican response.
Red State. Takes on this statement from the speech (which even I knew was crap): “And that’s why we’ve excluded lobbyists from policy-making jobs or seats on federal boards and commissions.”
The Anchoress. She has a couple of posts up. The first includes her live time responses during the speech. Her second post includes mostly links to other responses. Be sure to check out her link “Justice Alito mouthed ‘not true.'”
Michelle Malkin. Open Thread. Sub-heading of the post is: Blame the lobbyists! Fund high-speed rail boondoggles! Spending freeze plan met with near-silence, laughter; disses SCOTUS in front of SCOTUS.
