I wait with bated breath.

He will try to sound manly... and FAIL.

He will try to sound in charge, in control and presidential... and FAIL.

He will try to sound like a tough guy... and FAIL.

He will nauseate me... a complete SUCCESS.

I hope he doesn't keep Michelle and the girls waiting for their trip to Rio!

Glad he could find the time to squeeze this in between hoop picks, golf, WH shindigs, and his vacations!

Oh good!

I hope he'll explain why it's in our vital national interest to care who wins in Libya.

I'm also curious how you enforce a "no-fly zone" with bombers.

Cairo Speech

Obama promised the Muslim World A New Beginning in June 2009.

“I know — I know there has been controversy about the promotion of democracy in recent years, and much of this controversy is connected to the war in Iraq. So let me be clear: No system of government can or should be imposed by one nation by any other.”

“we interrupt this golf game for a special announcement...”

My fellow americans, and others, this is your President for Life (.)bama. As you know I have been considering how I could best bring this matter to a proper close. I have spent many breathless seconds, err, hours between events here at the white house on the Lybia matter. I have consulted with my sec of state, what is her name, ah, well, Bill’s wife; I have also consulted members of my household who told me to just get the bags packed for our...er ah, who programed this speech anyway? Well, I have spoken to everyone I needed to. I have come to this conclusion which only I must live with. I feel this is in the best interest of the world. So, I have decided to send a stern warning to my buddy, er ah, Moramar. I will point out to him my military is prepared to shoot his planes down, right after they get back from escorting me to Rio tomorrow. I will be keeping up with things while away on this important state visit, er, is Rio one of the 57 states? Oh, the mic is still on, well, if not it should be. Well, that is all I have and I am not taking any questions. Salom.

Do these people understand that in Iraq, imposing a no-fly zone was relatively easy since the air defense sytsem had been utterly destroyed in Desert Storm?

Libya on the other hand has an intact air defense system which means it will have to first be neutralized in order to enforce a no-fly zone. Air strikes will be needed. Losses and the resulting media circus should aircrew be captured can be expected. Does hussein have any comprehension of this?

“Does hussein have any comprehension of this?”

On one hand, I’d doubt it very much. However, his administration always schedules big announcements, which should be covered by media, for late Friday afternoons hoping they’ll escape attention. Makes me think he may announce bombing while the world’s attention is diverted to Japan.

We will note again that he did absolutely NOTHING on behalf of the people of Iran coming up a year ago. So I wonder why,why,why pick on Libya, when O helped get the Lockerbie bomber there to rejoice into his old age?

If he is providing a “no fly zone” for MOOMAR’s forces there should not be too much ground interference.

Dictators have to stick together.

the airhead in the suit reading the teleprompter ... probably had to practice an extra 20 minutes, so he wouldn’t accidently announce an air strike against the US middle class in every state that voted against him

He actually said regarding Libya and I quote; “We have moved quickly”.......he said QUICKLY. if this putz moved any slower he’d have been moving backwards. I wonder what Hill would say about this slug moving quickly.

His hair really is black. The hairdressers sprinkle baby powder to give the artificial “I’m old and stressed out” look. Then, when the time is right he appears with the black hair to look “Young, refreshed and ready to save the world”. All gimmicks.
