Fox News Panel Underwhelmed by Gov. Jindal's GOP Speech

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is a rising GOP star. Or he was until last night, when he delivered an unimpressive speech in response to President Barack Obama's address to a joint session of Congress.

The speech was so weak that even the hacks and partisans at Fox News couldn't figure out a way to make Jindal look good.

Here's a sample of the Fox reaction (h/t to Talking Points Memo):
Brit Hume: "The speech read a lot better than it sounded. This was not Bobby Jindal's greatest oratorical moment."

Nina Easton: "The delivery was not exactly terrific."

Charles Krauthammer: "Jindal didn't have a chance. He follows Obama, who in making speeches, is in a league of his own. He's in a Reagan-esque league. ... [Jindal] tried the best he could."

Juan Williams: "It came off as amateurish, and even the tempo in which he spoke was sing-songy. He was telling stories that seemed very simplistic and almost childish."
