Live Thread: Obama to Address Terror Threats 4:15 p.m. EDT 10/29/10
Friday, October 29, 2010 | Kristinn

Posted on 10/29/2010 12:22:29 PM PDT by kristinn

Obama will speak about today's terror threats. Besides speaking about Christine O'Donnell closing the gap with Chris Coons, Obama is also expected to talk about the packages from Yemen via UPS planes scare (and probably the plane getting a fighter escort to NYC now.)

October surprise. This is all premeditated if TOTUS is ready to speak at 4:15pm.

Barry may want to wait until somebody says that these “bombs” are actual explosives. So far, this doesn’t seem to be working out for him.

Terror right before Election Day is the perfect thing for reminding voters about what a colossal mistake they made two years ago. Perfect timing.

The "something" was to give the MSM a chance to change the subject. Now the Sunday shows can talk about Brack the Protector.

This is pretty lame as an October Surprise (unless something blows up), but they might think Brack looking tough will bring out a few thousand more women and New Castrati voters. :)

Since he first started to run for office, I have had a picture of Obama in my mind, him standing in the legs of a huge pair of pants down on the ground, in which he obviously only came up to about the knees, a massive shirt on the ground beside. Of course the clothing was only normal sized for a man. But then Obama is just a child.

This picture addresses the same issue, and I think it’s a great indicator of exactly what the situation is these days, with our POTUS (pretender of course).

My bet is, they think people will redirect their fears to terrorism rather than the lack of a job, lack of a house, currency crashing, 17 percent unemployment, the fact that a good chunk of them fear he''s a Muslim, etc.

Not really thinking it's going to resonate. Maybe with New Yorkers. For the rest of the country 9.11 may as well have been in 1911.

AQ attacked Spain and influenced their elections. Perhaps AQ thinks that, if the Dems look like they thwarted these attacks, we will all vote for the Dems. I can imagine having a comservative House and Senate would not be in AQ’s best interests :-)

Maybe, but it’d be an October Surprise in our favor. Everybody knows that national security issues are best handled by hard-nosed conservatives rather than mamby-pamby liberals.
