Obama's Speech

Did Cairo Love It or Hate It?

How did the audience react to President Obama’s speech? Well it depends on where you get your news. The Huffington Post is broadcasting “Standing Ovation in Cairo” on its homepage. But Politico’s Roger Simon headlines his piece “Barack Obama draws tough crowd in Cairo,” writing “While President Barack Obama received some applause and cheers during his address at Cairo University Thursday, at other times his speech fell flatter than a piece of pita bread.” And Drudge, shockingly, seems to be at a loss with spin. His headline for the speech is merely “6,000 words.”
