Obama “Very Pleased” With Speech, Says Communications Chief

By Joe Ciarallo Comment


Yesterday we highlighted Obama Chief Communications Officer Robert Gibbs, and his role as the media “enforcer.”

After last night’s big event, what did Obama relay to Gibbs regarding his feelings on the speech? Gibbs told the Wall Street Journal Obama was, “Very, very pleased…and to some degree, relieved.”

Also weighing in on the speech to reporters late last night at Invesco Field was Oprah, who said, “I’ve never experienced anything like that. I think it was anything anyone could ever expect.”
