This just in: Obama’s speech was so good, it might have been bad

So sick of some of the inside-the-beltway pundits. The latest inanity is, apparently, a new piece in US News & World Report that was breathlessly quoted today by the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza. In this piece we learn that Obama’s universally praised speech in Berlin this past Thursday might be a problem for Obama because, as we learned with George Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” speech, sometimes great speeches are judged harshly by history.

What?

Yes, did you catch that? Obama gave a great speech. George Bush gave a great speech (yeah, I don’t recall the Mission Accomplished speech being all that great, but whatever). George Bush lied to us during that speech and we caught it, big time. Now we hate George Bush. So maybe we’ll hate Obama too.

They really are just pathetic.
