Fineman Tells Olbermann Obama "Dominated the Room"; Says Speech Worthy of "Mount Rushmore" - Video 1/27/10
Here is video of Howard Fineman telling Keith Olbermann that President Obama "dominated the room" in his State of the Union Address last night. In fact, the gushing Fineman said that "if Presidential Leadership were only about giving speeches, the jackhammers would already be at work on Mount Rushmore."
He really said that!
This for a speech that was way too long, arrogant in tone, and incredibly disjointed. His attack on the U.S. Supreme Court with them sitting right in front of him was classless, and shows the kind of "hit and run" arrogance he has that leads him to think he has the right to treat people with whom he disagrees as he chooses. It was "safe" for him to do so because they had no opportunity to respond to his attack. He knew they could not and took the moment for a cheap shot.
That petulent attitude is not "Mount Rushmore" material.
