Peggy Noodnik Writes Again (Barack Is Boring Edition)

Today’s offering from Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan:

The Democrats’ Soft Extremism

Obama is out of ideas, and Clinton’s speech was unworthy of him

Barack Obama is deeply overexposed and often boring. He never seems to be saying what he’s thinking. His speech Thursday was weirdly anticlimactic. There’s too much buildup, the crowd was tired, it all felt flat. He was somber, and his message was essentially banal: We’ve done better than you think. Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?

There were many straw men. There were phrases like “the shadow of a shuttered steel mill,” which he considers writerly. But they sound empty and practiced now, like something you’ve heard in a commercial or an advertising campaign.

It was stale and empty. He’s out of juice.

His daughters have grown beautiful.

As for Joe Biden . . .

Like the hardworking staff says – the Annie Hall of the chinstrokerati.

P.S. How bad does something have to get to be unworthy of Bill Clinton? Just wondering.

  1. How surprised would you be to discover she filed this piece before the speech?
