Posted on 05/02/2011 12:08:34 AM PDT by STARWISE
The terse announcement came just after 9:45 p.m. Sunday from Dan Pfeiffer, the White House communications director.
POTUS to address the nation tonight at 10:30 PM Eastern Time, he wrote on Twitter, sharing the same message that had just been transmitted to the White House press corps.
According to Brian Williams, the NBC Nightly News anchor, some journalists received a three-word e-mail that simply read, Get to work.
That speculation was not aired out on television immediately, but it did erupt on Twitter and other social networking sites.
Wishful thinking about bin Ladens death ricocheted across the Web and then, at 10:25 p.m., while Mr. Obama was writing his speech, one particular tweet seemed to confirm it. Keith Urbahn, the chief of staff for the former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld, wrote at that time, So Im told by a reputable person they have killed Osama Bin Laden. Hot damn.

I hate that picture. I hate obama. I love Bibi.
I can’t type any moe without swearing.
Uhmmmm...just found this on DRUDGE:
It’s an update from this morning’s interview when Sen Brown told MYFOX Boston he’d seen the photo and he “was dead”... not sure wth is going on here:
FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - UPDATE: Scott Brown tells FOX25 - “The photo that I saw and that a lot of other people saw is not authentic.”
So to attribute this action to him is simply wishful thinking.
That ‘shop is one for the ages.
I think stopping the military’s pay checks didn’t help his cause one little bit. It didn’t happen but the threat was there...military all got letters stating they’d only be paid through April 8th....this had to be one of the last straws...that pushed this...
Has this nation witnessed such a terrifying chapter in the last 100 years ?
God be with us .. keep praying.
Toss in his hatred for our military, too.
Odeargod .. I didn’t know that. Could that be so.. those cretins would go to those depths of tyranny and depravity to cuckhold and intimidate them ? Lord, Lord, Lord .. Lord please help us.
Amen! He IS on His throne.
Is that for real? That is truly telling, if so.
Hmmm ... could it be the time it was posted rather than the time it was taken ?
I’ve been inside The Situation Room and sat in the POTUS’s chair. The Marixist is NOT seated in that chair. It’s obvious he came in late....
Thanks for the ping. That is a fascinating post. It made me think the following: hasn’t everything started to seem surreal? For me, I think it goes back to those mind-numbingly idiotic comments Obama spewed about there not being sufficiently cool phones in the Oval Office. When I heard his quotes, I thought, ‘he’s not just scarily childish; he borders on insane’.
Yes, you expect the leftist MSM to cover for him. But isn’t there even one adult in the press corps who paused after hearing that drivel, and asked him/herself, ‘What have we done??? Who have we installed in the Oval Office??? Is it really safe to go on with this immature, borderline nutcase in charge of the country?’?
How can this possibly sustain until ‘12? The Obama that emerged after the SEALs’ raid is a step beyond megalomania. He’s an unbalanced addict who’s been without his support system/fix too long. He is not stable.
Pray for the country. We’ve got an unhinged child in charge. This is an unsustainable paradigm.
Hah! Pretender ..
Sadly...yes, it is.
nope, that’s the time it was taken... but the clock in the camera could always be off, so who knows.
NEver mind about the Scott Brown brouhaha...DRUDGE just clarified it.
The way Scott Brown talked it seemed he’d seen photos shown him by the administration- he says” I’ve seen him, he’s dead”.
Fast forward- he gives update to MyFox saying the photo he and many others had seen is not authentic...which leads one to believe he’d been given a fake by the admin.
It turns out that Scott Brown saw the EXACT same FAKES we all saw on the net in the last two days!!!
GWB was our President! It was a very special, once in a lifetime tour of the West Wing!
