Slack jawing

Liberty (08941408);Jun2009, Vol. 23 Issue 5, p19
The article claims that the response of U.S. President Barack Obama's administration to the 2009 economic recession and its coverage by the U.S. media has degraded U.S. political rhetoric. The author believes that Obama constantly talks about his plans for the U.S. public sector but does not speak of the private sector. According to him, these announcements have turned the mainstream political discussion into an uninteresting rhetoric.
