Cherry Pickin'

The Buzz, while loyal to critique and opinion, still has a crush on President Barack Obama. In other news, Think Progress highlights Fox News' take on Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal's Sesame Street audition, Al Jazeera attempts to remind us the Rwandan conflict did not end with a Don Cheadle movie, and much more. We're speech-heavy this morning. So sit back, click through and read up. And don't worry. The Buzz totally skimmed the reading.


The New York Times: A brief summary and favorable analysis of President Obama's speech.

The Buzz's Take: Watching the speech involved a lot of head-nodding sprinkled with some curious tilts to the side.


The Washington Post: William Kristol explains that, despite the optimism, Obama demonstrated an inability to be a War President.

The Buzz's Take: Just because you don't talk extensively about putting your shoe in someone doesn't mean you won't.


Think Progress: A treatment of Gov. Bobby Jindal's PBS Tele--, Republican Response to the President's speech.

The Buzz's Take: Just awful. We like Jindal well enough but come on. They couldn't have gotten Newt Gingrich, Rush Limbaugh? What's Reagan up to these days?


The Huffington Post: MSNBC cuts to Jindal, Anchors not amused.
