Chuck Todd: Nothing New in Obama’s Speeches, WH ‘Stuck’ and ‘Flagging’

by Andrew Johnson

Yesterday’s job speeches were more of the same from President Obama, says NBC’s Chuck Todd. “If you’re looking for the ‘new’ — No, there wasn’t ‘new’ in there,” he said on Morning Joe today.

Todd sensed that the speeches were also a sign that the “flagging” White House is “stuck” because of a lack of agenda. “I think the president needed to do this,” Todd explained. “I think he needed to go in front of crowds, I think he needed to reenergeize himself.”

After speaking in Illinois and Missouri yesterday, President Obama will travel to Jacksonville, Fla. today to give the last speech of his trip.
