Ever more journalists bored while covering Obama

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

Or more specifically, bored while listening to Obama discuss the policy issues of the day. Wake them when it's over, already.

Dan Froomkin at Nieman Watchdog's blog flagged this one. It's from the Los Angeles Times' Frank James while live-blogging Obama's online town forum [emphasis added]:

This was just plain boring and too predictable. The same colleague says the problem is less the format than the president. He's a policy wonk who doesn't turn to humor very often. He also doesn't present the opportunity for entertaining malaprops that Bush did. So there wasn't that potential for entertainment either.
