Day655 Thursday 06/14/12

ran 3.6 miles
President Obama gave a 54 minute speech in Ohio today outlining the same themes and ideas he's been talking about in more brief and concise speeches of the past. This particular one differed only in that it was brutally lengthy and redundant. The main message of his speech was declaring the reality before us in this election that a choice between "two fundamentally different views of which direction America should take" will have to be decided. I could not agree more.

Here are some responses to his Ohio speech from the political press corps who heard it:

"In terms of politics, this speech could have ended about 20 minutes ago. Drive your message, take your ball, go home."
Mike O’Brien, Politico

"Just cheerleading BO doesn't help him. He needs a sharper, more cogent message with some memorable lines. I ain't walking my criticism of the worst speeches I’ve ever heard Barack Obama make."
Jonathan Alter, MSNBC

"This Obama speech is so long-winded it might be the first attempt to filibuster an election."
John Hayward, Human Events

"In America we don't quit till we've spoken for 54 minutes."
Jennifer Epstein, Politico

"There is nothing new in this speech."
Zeke Miller, Buzzfeed


47.0 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day290.
