Obama didn't "fall flat." He went low key on purpose. Here's the reason.

Politico is all "Obama fell flat."
A surprisingly long parade of Democrats and media commentators who didn’t think much of the speech described it less as a failure than a fizzle—an oddly missed opportunity to frame his presidency or the nation’s choice in a fresh or inspirational light.
Blah blah blah. But here's Howard Kurtz with the response Pee-Wee Herman made famous: I meant to do that.



Kurtz says Obama's speech was the result of careful focus-group testing.
Strategists felt they were in a box, unable to meet the twin goals of style and substance at once. To be sure, Obama wanted to excite the party’s liberal base. But his brain trust was convinced that they would have gotten killed by going with a red-meat speech that simply bashed Republicans without detailing what Obama would do in the next four years....
Dial-twisting focus-groupers, strategists-in-a-box, a brain trust. Where is the man himself, the candidate, the President? I don't see the excuse here, Howie. It's like you're saying he is the empty chair.
