Is that supposed to be a bad thing?
In an interview with SiriusXM Satellite Radio’s Ron Bennington, comedian and former CNN host D.L. Hughley criticized President Barack Obama for not showing enough passion. Hughley said that Obama tends to respond to criticism intellectually and is “closer to being a white kid” in that respect. However, Hughley says that Obama’s calm demeanor also results in a lack of enthusiasm from the public in the election. [...]
There, Hughley offered a critique of President Obama saying that he is not especially impressed with Obama’s intellectual response to criticisms he receives from his Republican opponents. Hughely said he would prefer to see Obama “fight fire with fire.”
“He doesn’t seem to get that you have to be willing at some point to fight fire with fire.” Said Hughley. “He’s closer to being a white kid. Intellectually, like his experiences are so different from mine that, I should say, he responds like an intellect as opposed to a regular guy.”
