Rachel Maddow: Sigh, We Need Some Adult Talk From Obama

Sigh. Literally, that was Rachel Maddow‘s reaction to President Obama’s address from the Oval Office last night. One big sigh. Joining a chorus of frustrated MSNBC hosts who were sorely disappointed by the president, Maddow summed up her feelings thusly:

In the big picture I am excited to see the President treating this with the gravity of something that requires and Oval Office address to the nation. In terms of the content of that address to the nation…I think the country is ahead of the politicians, that we all need to hear a little bit more, and I think we could have all taken a little bit more adult talk from the President.

Watch below. Obama is set to give another address from the Rose Garden at noon today so perhaps we will get some grown-up talk then.
