I’m listening to an Obama press conference. It’s been going on for a while and he’s answering a lot of questions.
He sounds like the man who ran for office in ’08. Clear, detailed answers. Solid explanations of how the economy works – at home and around the world. Utterly different from the usual sputtering defensive stance.
If the American people heard more like this, we’d be in a whole different place.
UPDATE: Just checking out Balloon Juice and they seemed to like it too. Plus they have links to vid and transcript.
ETA: Presser concluded. From this day forward, October 8th shall be known as National Pony Day in honor of President Obama’s stellar performance. Well, I’ll observe NPD, anyway. It was a tonic for any liberal who longed to see the Tea Party loons get kicked in the junk repeatedly. I’ll post a video and transcript when I can find one.
ETA: Transcript and video via WaPo here. Watch it and rejoice!
