I was so shocked, I had to look it up.<quoted text>Chris Matthews: Obama Likes Giving Speeches More Than He Likes Leading.
Sure enough. Not only did he say that, but said this too.
"What part of the presidency does Obama like? He doesn't like dealing with other politicians -- that means his own cabinet, that means members of the congress, either party. He doesn't particularly like the press....He likes to write the speeches, likes to rewrite what Favreau and the others wrote for the first draft," Matthews said.
"So what part does he like? He likes going on the road, campaigning, visiting businesses like he does every couple days somewhere in Ohio or somewhere," Matthews continued. "But what part does he like? He doesn't like lobbying for the bills he cares about. He doesn't like selling to the press. He doesn't like giving orders or giving somebody the power to give orders. He doesn't seem to like being an executive.”
Jon Stewart, Tom Browkaw and now Chris Matthews?
The slobbering love affair is over.
