On Thursday, I wondered if the president’s “big speech” on jobs would “just be another one of his big speeches, a lot of platitudes, emphasizing broad points, but providing no specifics“.
Looks like I was onto something.
Yesterday, having listened to the public statements of Obama advisors, Philip Klein wonders if that “very specific plan” to crate jobs has “already been downgraded to an outline“:
That is, at least, the impression I got watching Obama advisors Robert Gibbs and David Axelrod on yesterday’s Sunday morning shows.
“The president is going to outline a short-term plan to accelerate the economy,” Axelrod said on ABC’s This Week. . . .
On Meet the Press, Gibbs used similar language, “The president is going to outline some ideas, the president has outlined ideas every day he’s been in the White House.”
Read the whole thing. So, guess he’s not just “willing to make those tough choices” necessary “to move America forward.”
