In 2008, Chris Matthews famously said this after listening to Barack Obama’s speech: “I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don’t have that too often.”
Let’s hope not.
Now, in 2012, after President Obama’s speech in Kabul, Afghanistan, the Obama Legend grows even larger.
“It was right out of Henry V actually,” Matthews said, “a touch of Barry, in this case, in the night for those soldiers risking their lives over there.”
So Obama, whom his press courtiers have compared to Lincoln, can now take his place next to Shakespeare.
